Very nicely laid out park with huge, extremely level sites, one row of which backs up to the Nottely River (which you're not supposed to swim in, sadly - I think). All the sites have a nice patio-ish type area for a picnic table. They pay careful attention to the landscaping, but they do seem to have a issue with moles so beware if you're walking along the river sites in stilettos. The camp host was super laid back - check in and check out times weren't strictly enforced (within reason, I'd assume - we didn't push it) and we were told to feel free to wash our rig and toad if we so desired. Verizon data service was good enough for us to do our day job and the Verizon voice service was sufficient for decent voice quality. WiFi is provided by the park but, as one might expect, could be sketchy if the park is full. My speed tests on their WiFi showed a 3Mb up/3Mb down connection. No issues at all getting DirecTV satellite reception. I'd love to give them a "10" but can't as they have fire pits at each site and, while large and level, there's not much shade to be had. In fact, if you desire afternoon/evening shade, avoid the back-in spots along the river and take a pull-through site. There was some road noise as you're right off a four-lane highway, but if you're on the far side of the park it's hardly noticeable even when outside. We camped at Rivers Edge Mountain RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The new casino is 15-20 minutes away on the other side of Murphy - take a left out of the park and just keep going. Valley River Brewery is a good spot for craft beer and pizza - they're located in downtown Murphy.

Largest and most level Rv site we've ever had! All roads are paved and concrete. Grass was well taken care of. Hookups were excellent. Owners very friendly. We had an unexpected additional member stay with us-I called and asked how much extra-was told it was OK. There is road noise-but with the AC on you can't hear it. Will definitely return!

My rating reflects our opinion that the campground has little charm or personality. It is an excellent "RV Park", but not what we call a "campground". The sites are very long, and reasonably spaced from each other. The sites all face the same direction (NE) thus no afternoon shade on the curbside of the rig. Trees are few and far between and located where they could seldom provide any shade. And thus our satellite TV worked fine. The local cable TV was excellent. The man that checked us in was very helpful. The laundry was excellent. And the campground wifi was as good as it gets!! The later being a rather rare event amongst the campgrounds we visit. Our Verizon phones worked fine. They have a few sites along the river site but they were $59 per night, and the river, perhaps 40 feet behind the sites, would not be visible from the site. We camped at Rivers Edge Mountain RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park with very helpful host. Sites are extremely large for a commercial park and are billiard table flat and level. Pads are concrete with a patio extension. Paved interior roads with access from the highway very easy. Hookups are as good as they get. For the downside; this a converted pasture with sites lined up in an orderly fashion and if you’re lucky you get a small tree. Nearby road noise apparent but not all that annoying. I didn’t check out the laundry or bathhouse but based on the general maintenance and upkeep I’m sure they are much more than adequate. If in the area I will stay here again although I prefer more privacy and less order in my life. We camped at Rivers Edge Mountain RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Owner/manager is very accommodating. Very nice park, well maintained. Great for big rigs with large pull-throughs and plenty of room to spread out between you and your neighbor. Nice back-ins next to the river as well. We spent some time here last summer and decided to return for a month this year. If you just want to relax and enjoy camping, plan a visit to this campground. You won't be sorry. We camped at Rivers Edge Mountain RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Would be a higher score, except no pool and some gnats this year. Not terrible but a bit annoying. Owner keeps this park really neat, clean and mowed! We really like the entertainment facility that he has with some excellent entertainment, and cook outs! Laundry is excellent, in a nice club house with TV and WIFi that works well. Most sites have nice fire pit and table and owner has wood right there. Verizon does well here but ATT is not good at the park. Stayed here last year for 3 weeks, this year a month. A month ranges from 499 to 699 per month depending on location in the park. We were in # 37 and it was nice. No shade but lots of nice lawn space between sites! Great concrete pads, all pull through with plenty of length for big rigs! Overall, we recommend this RV Park as a nice base for an extended stay and sightseeing spot for NC, Northern GA, and Tennessee. We WILL definitely stay here again!

This is a big rig friendly park. We had no problem with utilities and the water was good. It was impossible to get a spot with a friendly direction to point (we prefer facing NE or NW). All the sites face East or West so we chose to face West and have a shade on our door side. There are no activities planned. It is about 90 miles to the Great Smokey Mountain NP. Nanthala Gorge is about 40 miles. Tail of the Dragon is about 30 miles. The river is not usable for any water activity. The Knottly river is filled with downed trees and has a soft bottom. It is unpredictable when the Knottly Dam will release water for electricity production. The water level will dramatically raise at different times to flood levels. Do not allow your kids to play in this dangerous waterway. A high powered mower was used next to our coach with the rubber discharge guard removed. The high powered mower was used as a blower to clean off parking pads. There are rocks shooting everywhere due to no discharge guard keeping things directed at the ground. (we see this at lots of parks) We enjoyed fishing and boating at Blue Ridge lake in nearby Georgia. We camped at Rivers Edge Mountain RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We are here for 2 weeks and the park is well maintained with large pull through sites. Owners/managers are very accommodating and friendly. Quiet park this time of year. Great area in the mountains and local N.C. crafts. We camped at Rivers Edge Mountain RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

A great campground for big rigs; no sweaty headaches here. Not many activities available within the resort, but all the sites are premium with paved, level, ultra-long runs and first-rate hookups, perfect for an overnighter or a few days. The owner was very friendly and helpful, providing us with information on the area as well as pointing out everything at our site when we arrived. Located about ten minutes from Murphy, a nice little town with all services. Will definitely camp here again when in the area. We camped at Rivers Edge Mountain RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Once again, this campground was perfect for our needs. Very clean, large sites with level concrete pads and paved roads. Campground was clean and well kept, grass mowed and trees trimmed. Perfect home base if you have business in the area or if you have plans during the day. There is nothing to do at the campground, no pool, playground, game room, fenced dog area, or activities. But if quiet, clean and friendly is what you want, this is your place. We camped at Rivers Edge Mountain RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Management was very friendly and our riverfront site was large and paved. The park is perfect for large rigs but not what I would call kid or family friendly. With no pool or playground there is nothing for kids to do here; that is probably why we did not see any kids and the park was extremely quiet although quite full. Perfect place for retirees, but if you want activities for kids, this is not the place to stay. We camped at Rivers Edge Mountain RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here a week while attending the John C. Campbell Folk School. Park is impeccably maintained. All roads are paved and each site has a level concrete pad for your RV and picnic area. Modern hookup pedestal with lights, power, cable, and 2 water hookups. Sites were quite large and long enough for big rigs. Wi-Fi was weak but usable in far end of campground. Community building has small laundry and meeting area. They have a pavilion for groups with grills and a fire pit. Riverside back-in sites are extra. Manager very friendly and helpful. If you have children there are no playground facilities or pool. Rate paid was a weekly rate. Only trees were small evergreens on each site.

We LOVED this campground! Sites were nice and large, level, paved, great space between sites; park very well maintained and owner/management was great! Creek was a nice feature too. Location was really good to tour areas around in beautiful mountains. We will definitely be back...many times! We camped at Rivers Edge Mountain RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Out of the way, yes. No great vista, but this is a great place. Paved, cement pads with plenty of room. Everything is new and works. Easy in and out. Cable has many channels. This is worth a stop. Will definitely try to get here again. We camped at Rivers Edge Mountain RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
