Small campground, very quiet, backed up to creek. Owners very nice. Only drawback was no cable and could not get satellite signal. WiFi was good. We would camp here again. We camped at Catawba Falls Campground in a Motorhome.

Very basic campground is laid out along both sides of the Catawba River headwaters up a narrow valley about 2.5 miles out of town. A ring of a dozen sites surrounds the bath house with about half seasonals; other sites looked a little more spacious, but sites were very close to each other. Privies in other areas of the campground. Fee shown includes Passport America discount. No OTA TV reception with minimal cell service. Wi-Fi worked well. Laid back staff very friendly and easy to deal with. Camp store was not open during my 2 day stay. I was here to watch the trains and there is very limited camping in this area. I'd probably stay here again if in the area. We camped at Catawba Falls Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

This is a dry county, so you'll need to drive to Black Mountain for those needs. Fascinating train track climbs into the mountains starting in Old Fort; trains can be chased up the mountain. Andrews Geyser is a good train watching spot. Catawba Falls is an easy hike from the campground. Baptist conference center in Ridgecrest, about 8 miles west.

Nice park, very quite, very scenic. The managers were very helpful and went out of their way to make sure everything was ok. It is close to lots of things to see, the German Resturant in Black Mountain is a must. We will be back for sure and the $15 is Passport rate. We camped at Catawba Falls Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a small family campground that we have camped in twice. Both times we were lucky enough to get a spot on the creek/river. It was very peaceful and serene and the last trip we got the spot with a wooden deck that overlooks the creek. The sites are relatively level and on gravel with shade trees on most sites. The bathhouse is small, but clean. There are two toilets and two showers in each restroom. There is a small playground for the kids and a covered picnic area for folks wanting to have a family reunion or get-together. The owners and their family live on site and have a few farm animals (ponies, chickens). The tent section is across the creek and down a little way from the RV section and they now have several yurts that they rent out. There is a small laundry room, but I did not have occasion to use it. The best feature of the campground is that it is in walking distance to the trailhead to the Catawba Falls waterfall trail. Unfortunately it poured rain almost the whole time we were here this year and there was a lot of mud to wade through, so some extra gravel at the sites would have been nice. We will likely return to this campground in the future. We camped at Catawba Falls Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice. Family friendly and it is just a short hike to see the beautiful Falls. This small campground is immaculate in cleanliness. There is a small 'catch and release' pond for campers use. The store is well stocked and is most of the day. We camped at Catawba Falls Campground in a Tent Trailer.
