We had a pull through, full hookups for our RV. We had to level the RV on a grassy area. There was a nice concrete pad that served as a patio for the picnic table and our chairs that was very nice. The laundry room was very clean and a washer/dryer was always available when needed. There is an 'arcade' building that contains exercise equipment, pool table, foosball table, croquet equipment, and pinball machines, which we didn't use but if we had children with us, it would have been great! There are a lot of RV'ers who have reserved the riverside spaces year-round, so we had to settle for a space along the road, but we nevertheless had a great view. The staff is extremely nice and servicing, and we were very pleased with our stay. Unfortunately, the wireless is not the best since the campground is nestled among mountains, but it is acceptable. The owner of the campsite lives on the foothills of the mountain and makes himself available to resolve any issues you may encounter. We would stay here again if we are ever in the area, and we highly recommend this campground. There is no sign that tells you in advance of the campground, so make sure you are not just relying on your GPS but be on the lookout for the campground. We camped at Buck Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

A diamond in the rough, truly God's country. This sweet gem of a place was our most peaceful and relaxing trip so far. Being nestled along the North Toe River provided us the perfect opportunity to enjoy tubing down the river, sunbathing on the shore and enjoying the pristine views of the Western Carolina mountains. Our site was canopied by several large trees and had a well manicured lot, concrete pad and picnic table with easy access to the river, full hookup and very consistent Wi-Fi . Definitely a place we will return to. With a great community atmosphere there is no wonder why so many visitors end up becoming seasonal campers. We camped at Buck Hill Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This could be a great campground, but it falls short. Yes, it’s on a small river, but the only people who can fall asleep listening to the small waterfall are the owners (their site is right by the waterfall. There is NO cable TV and no on-air stations. Wi-Fi works well, but only in the gathering room, not at individual sites. Verizon wireless was non-existent to spotty due to the surrounding mountains. Water pressure fluctuates from low to adequate. The place is quiet, in spite of Highway 19E a few yards away. Some campers could not use their sewer hookups because of a blockage and the owners not knowing where the sewer lines ran. Mostly seasonal campers on well-kept sites. Rumor was that it will be all seasonal in 2012. We camped at Buck Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

Tranquil is the perfect description. Nestled in between the mountains, with a river rushing by, our campsite was right on the water. The sites include cement patios and picnic tables. The bathrooms were the cleanest we've ever seen; white walls and shower curtains and throw rugs showed no signs of wear. Falling asleep with the window open to hear the peaceful sound of the river was a unique experience: something we look forward to again. Also, the staff was very friendly and helpful, providing us our choice in select sites. We camped at Buck Hill Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Buck Hill last fall for just shy of 2 weeks. We found the campground to be in an ideal location in Western NC. The campground is adjacent to the Toe River with a beautiful waterfall right by the entrance. We were a quick drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway and numerous attractions in the area. One reason for our decision to stay here and it was absolutely true: fishing! The river was an excellent location for trout fishing, and is stocked frequently by the state. We caught a nice mix of moderate sized, stocked and larger native trout during our stay here. There is a new bath house/meeting area/laundry facility that had apparently just been completed the month before our arrival. It was not in place when we were here, but we were told they will also have a large HDTV and internet stations in 2010. The grounds and roads are well maintained with beautiful gardens throughout the campground, and everyone we encountered was extremely friendly and neighborly. They have a limited access entry which eliminated the excess traffic we have encountered in some places. We will definitely return to Buck Hill in 2010 during our tour of Western NC! We camped at Buck Hill Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We have vacationed here for many years. The new owners seem to be trying to make an effort to clean the place up by renovating the main bathhouse. Our first trip here was in June. Terrible wind storm, of course not the campground's fault. The kids enjoy the play area and the creek for tubing. In June, the play area had no swings, just sand to play in. The main bath house was under construction; the second one was nasty, water will not drain out of the showers, 2 people cannot shower at the same time due to water pressure and temperature, the creek banks were covered in dog waste, which you had to walk through to get into the water. This is a pet friendly park, which means some continuous campers let their dogs run free to scare the kids. In July, the bathhouse was in the same condition, they did work on it while we were there, so they are trying. Dog waste was all cleaned up. Swings were hung. We ended up in the same camp spot each time. They are all nice, large, shaded spots, but the ones on the creek are the nicest. It seems that they save the BEST for the highest paying customers. We will try it again once the bathhouses are complete, I think they are on the right track. We camped at Buck Hill Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground has 60 sites and 48 are reserved during the summer months for seasonal campers. Unlike many campgrounds with a large seasonal population, most of these sites are attractive and well-maintained and the seasonal residents were friendly. The campground is located along the bank of the North Toe River but most of the 22 riverside sites were occupied by seasonal campers – only one was available when we arrived. The interior roads are gravel and well-maintained. All sites are gravel or grass and some have a concrete patio. All sites are level. There are 6 very large pull-through sites that can accommodate the biggest rigs. The bathhouse and restrooms are old but clean and in good repair. A small laundry is outside under a roof. Several swings and a small basketball court are available for children. The common grounds are grassy and neatly mowed. A weak (one or two bars) cell phone signal is available. No cable TV was available and no local channels were picked up by my RV antenna. Linville Falls and the Blue Ridge Parkway are 9 miles away. We camped at Buck Hill Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
