44 RV Parks near Otto, North Carolina

This is a very small campground, but don't let that stop you from camping here. The staff are very friendly. There are 2 small very stocked ponds for trout fishing - any child will be able to catch multiple fish. A small stream flows alongside the property that you can stand in at one end. A bigger lake provides a more challenging fishing experience and there is a paddle boat available. The area is super quiet (we were the only ones there). The campground itself is actually just in NC, but you get there from the major highway in GA. The only downside (if there has to be one) is that the sites are not the easiest to access. However, we were able to do just fine given that it was our first time ever camping. If you're looking for a cheap place to stay with a relaxing, friendly atmosphere give this place a try. You won't be disappointed. - rvgirl

Lazy Z is a small family owned campground. Sites are on the small side. Some on a little pond in the park. Sewer hookup is available on limited spots. A dump station is available. Sites are all gravel. We reserve our site and go back every year. Passport America is accepted. - oldcutup

More than a campground, this is an adult "retreat"! A small campground carved into a hillside with site vistas that are spectacular. The hosts are RV'ers and their approach to running this camp definitely comes from their experiences. Warm, welcoming and attentive they make you feel right at home as soon as you arrive and see your name on their chalk board. You'll get escorted to your site, set-up and before you know it the owner is there to give you a tour of their breathtaking property. Full service site (30 amp) offered privacy, peace and quiet. We had WiFi and over the air TV at certain times of the day. They have a deer refuge, do a nightly feeding and have geese and chickens. No pool or playground here but that's exactly the way this place is meant to be. Serenity now. - Breezy2

Beautiful views from our unit. Very private, very quiet, very clean, pet friendly. Lots of deer, turkeys and even ducks to view. Close to everything. Wonderful hosts, I think my husband and I made new friends. We will definitely return as often as we can. Can't say enough good things about our stay. - Yancey

Best place ever! The hosts are so nice and caring. Pet friendly place and so peaceful with a lot privacy. It will be hard going back to a regular campground. If you are around Franklin, you have to check it out. - Caroleking

We stayed for 4 nights. Park is very nice and we'll kept. Site was good and level. The only thing I did not care for is the mix of owned lots and rentals. We had two encounters with owners that were surprising. When we pulled up the owner next to us had his vehicle and a friend's parked in our site. They moved to site next to us. People renting that site knocked on our door thinking it was our vehicle. When we left today we were loading our toad and the lot across from us parked their truck right on edge of their site. A vehicle was trying to get by so I asked if they could move just a little and I was told in a very unpleasant manner that they owned this lot and no one is to drive on their gravel. The car had to turn around. Seems like the lot owners feel they own the park. Just my impression. Overall everything else was good. - Pahu3

We made reservations on line but soon realized that the site would be too small for our rig. They moved us to another site but we could only stay for 4 nights and then we would have to move to a 3rd site. They were very helpful and it wasn't their fault - mhmama

This is a gorgeous park and everyone that works here is wonderful. The heated outdoor pool was amazing and we loved the indoor hot tub (it's gigantic). The grounds are beautiful and very well cared for. People seemed to be friendly, but there was barely a soul out at night. Call me old-fashioned, but my idea of camping is sitting outside at night by the campfire and you just didn't see that there. They do not have fire pits; however, you can still have a fire as long as you bring your own and it's at least 6" off the ground. We had one so we were probably the only people outside after dark. The placement of the tree on our site (and some of the other sites around us), made it a little difficult to place the fire pit but we managed. The wifi was not extremely reliable in the evening (appeared to work better during the day so I'm not sure if that was because more people were connecting in the evening??). It appeared they were installing additional wifi antennas (or whatever you call them) the day before we left so that may improve in the future. We had no problems with AT&T cell phone service at the campground. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and we will definitely be back. - Campdog41

First time camping in Franklin NC, could not have picked a better campground. Very clean and well maintained. Camp host is very helpful and very nice. Wife and I checked other campgrounds in the area and nothing compares as for as cleanest and pretty. We were very lucky to have picked such a nice place. When we come back this way, we will definitely stay here. - P Ardis

This was our first visit here and we will definitely be back. The campground is very clean and quiet. The Host couple was great. I would recommend this place to any one looking for a clean and quiet place to stay. Site surface was gravel and features a fire ring and picnic table.
Please tell your friends about this park. - Josh L

Wonderful campground! Great pavilion with fireplace, gliding chairs and tables and benches. Nice landscaping. The park hosts were new to the area but were very attentive and very friendly. Would definitely stay here again. Best campground in Franklin. - Lexusrx350

My first impression was to hang a 1 star rating on this campground and pack up and leave. After some thought however I thought it best to be objective so other campers could get a clear unbiased review of this campground. The experience started when we arrived to find that the pull thru site we had reserved was not available and we had to take a back in site. The roads were very narrow with tight turns. About 50% of the roads were paved....the rest were gravel as were the sites. 90 to 95% of the sites in here were seasonal. I saw only about 8 sites for daily/weekly campers. While pull thru sites are advertised there are only 4 in the entire place. Both electric and water were not controlled from our site but the site next door. It took a good 15 mins. of troubleshooting when we set up to figure this out. My observation was that the seasonal people pay the bills and transients are not a priority. There was no water in the bathrooms/showers/laundry for the first 2 days we were there. While their websites shows mountain vista views, our view was of a church parking lot and a large propane tank. There was moderate noise from the highway in front of the park.
On the positive side, the manager/owner was very nice and tried to be helpful. The seasonal residents were also very nice, quiet and willing to share local knowledge.
The sites were mostly shaded. The price was reasonable. - TLL

Manager was very nice and helpful. This is a lovely area and park. Most of the sites are seasonal rentals so it is best to call ahead to make sure there is one available. Our site was difficult to get into and very close to other sites but manager helped. Some sites have lots of shade/trees; others have mix of shade and sun. Our site was too tight to have a campfire; picnic table was small and could only seat two adults. - SDeasy

Staff and campers were very friendly. Pull-thru site was quite long. Be careful when making turns in campground. Some are very tight and must be taken as wide as possible, especially if you're in a longer motorhome. Best to have someone outside to guide you through the turns. Some of the trees could have been better trimmed. - TGOHal

This camp ground is very close to my home, but we make it a point to camp there at least once a year sometimes more. It was one of our favorite campgrounds years ago when our kids were small. They enjoyed wading in the river, roller skating, and looking for rubies in the stream, and riding bikes. Our oldest first rode his bike there for the first time. My wife and I love to go back now to relive fond old memories. The store is staffed regularly and offers basic supplies you may have forgotten at home. Restrooms are always clean as are the showers. I've never seen them in need of attention. It can get cool up there even in the summer following a rain shower, especially at night. Generators are handy, no hook ups. Water is available on each loop from spigots, but is not available at the site. Great value, great scenery, and the people are usually very friendly. Can't recommend it enough. - Rodmaker15

Drop dead gorgeous park! Right on the Appalachian Trail. Waterfalls, rivers, great fall color. No electric at sites; No water at sites. In the cool fall weather (dipping into the upper 20's) a generator is a must (which we didn't have). So, we had to pack it up and go to a lower elevation. Would be a wonderful 14 day stay with a generator. Seems like many sites would handle a large motor coach. Sites are level and have gravel and black top. Water can be obtained easily from the many spigots that are threaded. - JohnandDeb

Wow, what a surprise! Very nice, quiet campground in the Nantahala National Forest. No frills, just quiet and peaceful. Five loops, each has a campground host. Beware of the recreation.gov website, however. I originally booked a site in loop 5 which obviously couldn't accommodate a 29' travel trailer. Reservationist told me it should accommodate a rig up to 55'. No way, the site may have handled a small pop up. Had to cancel and lost a $20.00 cancellation fee (that fight isn't over yet). Anyway, very nice campground. Will be back. - rcknrbn

Park is very well maintained with paved interior roads and grassy sites. Staff could not have been more helpful. I was parked in the back so the road noise from the adjacent 4 lane highway was not annoying. However, those sites next to the road have a different take on the situation. My water hookup was at ground level thus a pain, electric and sewer were fine. Cable consisted of 4 channels which is enough for me. Wi-Fi was almost nonexistent, so worse than none at all. I don’t have kids and I am in the area to explore, thus I’m gone early and return in time to cook dinner. Posh parks with lots of amenities are wasted on me. This place with its lower cost serves my purpose. If I’m ever back in the area I would try to find something better. - plove

Another great stay at this incredibly scenic park at the foot of The Great Smoky Mts. Very close to The Appalachian Trail and The Nantahala National Forest. Lots to do and see in this area. We have been coming to this Park and area for ten years and still haven't seen it all. Hope I can come for many more, and stay here. Owner/Operators are great and we always enjoy our stay. - NEEP46

This is a Great little Park with wonderful owners and beautiful surroundings. We have stayed here many times before and I can't wait to come back. It is a Nice Park to tour the Franklin and Lower Smokey Mountain area, with many National Parks around. The Owners are on site and are very helpful to all their Campers. We will be back. NOTE: I don't know what park the reviewer who gave a (1) was at, but I am sure it was not this one. - NEEP46

The rate reflects a weekly rate. This is one of our favorite parks. We have been coming here twice a year for the last couple of years. The sites are level with gravel spots and roads. There are some sites along the creek. The laundry is clean. All the seasonal people are very friendly. We will return. - esta34950

Level sites, gravel roads and sites. Very quiet campground with lots of things to do. The permanent people are very friendly and invited us to join them in all their activities. Sites available along the river. - esta34950

We stayed here because it was the closest available to Highlands where we were visiting family.
We asked for a spot along the river which we got (#45) but there was no shade. Also the river was underwhelming. Small, slow moving. There were other sites with much better shade and if we had to do it over again, we would have asked for a spot with the most shade vs. a spot along the river. Wi-Fi worked well as did our phone (AT&T).
There were a lot of long-timers there. It seemed a fair number were there for longer than just the season. Everyone was friendly and we felt safe. Mostly older people. Fairly crowded. They had a schedule of events including bingo, cards, church, etc. We didn't attend any but I thought it was a nice touch. They had a large group room and there were usually older people in there playing cards.
One down side was that it was hard to find someone in the office. It wasn't consistently open during business hours which was frustrating. They did have a nice selection of movies (no charge) which was a bonus. However there was no drop-off box or slot to put the movies in and we didn't want to call the emergency number because it clearly wasn't an emergency.
The bathrooms and showers were impressively clean.
Overall, this was a convenient stop, but next time we'd try something else. If you want to hang out with a pleasant group of older people that like to play cards, bingo, etc. it might be for you. - GearDown

Really pretty, secluded campground. No hook ups, but the showers and bathrooms were exceedingly clean, and the camp hosts couldn't have been more welcoming. We'll definitely be back. - Mjmurray98
