The park itself was more of a subdivision. All the lots and the roads were well thought out. The office was nice, staff friendly. My site was large enough to accommodate my rig and tow vehicle albeit a little tight lengthwise. I had a nice view of the pond. The pad was level and all the services worked as they should. The wifi was okay. I was clocking enough speed to surf the net but not anything else. To be fair though, the local provider was there installing faster service. Overall, very nice place to stay for awhile. - -Stony-

The Mountain Views on the Ridge lots are fantastic! The resort is now managed by a professional management company. All sites are full hook up and almost all have high speed internet (all will have high speed internet within two weeks). One ridge lot recently sold for 1.6 million. This has been listed as one of the 15 best RV resorts in the US. Very nice power pedestals, water pressure here is excellent. - WKR

This Class A ownership resort, with rental spaces available when the owners are not on site, is located at an elevation of 3200 feet in the Blue Ridge Mountains. LOTS of twists and turns on the way to the park, so it is EXTREMELY important to follow the driving directions provided by the resort and not your GPS. Be very aware of bridge heights when driving to this resort, as some roads have low bridges under which most motor coaches will not be able to pass, thus reiterating the importance of following the resort's directions. It is very advantageous to book online, as you are able to view each available site (pull in or back in) and select the best for your needs...from a basic site to one with built-ins. Upon arrival, check-in was smoothly conducted by very friendly and helpful office personnel. Once checked in, we were guided to our spot by a resort employee. Sites are nicely spaced, allowing for privacy. This resort is beautifully landscaped and interior roads are wide and easily navigable, even for the largest of coaches. Located at the top of the resort (the Ridge) is a beautiful clubhouse, pool, fitness room, and tennis/pickleball courts, along with some gorgeous homes. There is a second, smaller pool located in the lower portion of the resort. A 9-hole par 3 golf course winds its way throughout the resort. While staying at the resort, we traveled to Whitewater Falls, Gorges State Park, Brevard, NC, Chimney Rock State Park, and the Biltmore Estate. We had a beautiful spot in the resort, but because we constantly come and go touring the area surrounding where we stay, and because the roads to the resort are not the best (some are currently being improved), we will not return to this resort. If you use this resort as a destination...staying here once you arrive, then this may be just perfect for you. - HRTravelers

This is a small, rustic park. Nothing fancy. It is deep in the woods with a clean clear river on the boundary. I would recommend to anyone that wants a private woodsy feel but only if you have a unit that is under 30 ft, preferably even smaller than that. Very tight turns and sites bordered by large trees. The entrance to the park is over the river on a narrow trestle one lane wooden bridge. It can be quite intimidating. It is a Passport Amer park but only good Mon to Fri. PA rate is 14.50 for fhu pull thru. - 70 Nole

Great Location in Transylvania county NC,close to Blue Ridge PKW and numerous fantastic waterfalls. The campground is nestled in a valley surrounded by mountains with the French River running through it. Horses and chickens are at the park. The owners are great helpful big heart people and we felt like at home. - summerdude

Better hurry and get to this RV park since it's being sold to developers in October. What a shame since it was so peaseful, beautiful, cool and private. There is not another in this area for 20 miles that even remotely compares. The host owners were super. - RF Gordon

We have camped here before and were sorely disappointed to learn the this campground will be closing down for good at the end of October. The property has been sold to a developer to create a gated Equine community. This is a real gem, very secluded. We camped here in late July when it was 95 degrees everywhere in the south and the temperature in this campground at 5:00 PM was only 72 degrees - felt so good. The management/owners are very helpful. If you get the chance, experience the unique campground before it is gone. - dieseldrive

The park is nestled in a valley between two mountains. It is very shaded and we had perfect temperatures (70-72) even though we were camping in August. The staff and owners are quite friendly and make you feel like one of the family. There are group activities on weekends, a (pay) trout pond and 20 miles in either direction are nice little towns with gift shops, restaurants, etc... The park is level, which is unusual in the mountains. Lots of trees, and some backing is tight, but the owner will help guide you into your spot. Expect a strain on your engine to get there--and check those brakes, too! This was one of the most peaceful, relaxing camping trips ever! We will definitely make this a regular thing. - McMudder

Beautiful area on the shores of Lake Jocasse. Getting there in our 37ft Motorhome was a little unsettling as the roads to the park are not exactly big rig friendly. The park itself is nice, the campground is a little tight and roads to sites are definitely not for big rigs. Sites are not the most level. We were in site 59 which was long enough for our rig and tow car. Site was clean. Didn't use bath house but took a peek - looked a little worn and like it could use some updating. We did use the laundry which was in next loop over and it was "okay" - not the cleanest facility. Since it was not in walking distance we had to take dirty clothes in car. Parked as close to laundry as we could and when we returned to our car, we had a warning ticket for parking in a lot, only 2 others cars there, that was designated for tent campers. The park needs to designate parking for those using the laundry facility. Also, upon check in, the park staff was not the friendliest. Seemed annoyed with tending to campers waiting to check in and abruptly gave us directions to camp site on park map that turned out to be inaccurate. Don't think we will camp here again mainly because of not being big rig friendly but will definitely plan a day trip to park to enjoy the beautiful lake. - Highway Honu

This was our first time visiting this park. Built in 1990, it is one of the newest of the state parks, which to me, makes no sense why they did not add sewer connections. Overall, a very nice park and campground. All of the staff we met were very friendly and knowledgeable. The park was clean and well kept.
Park Rangers make frequent rides thru the campground. The bathhouses were mostly clean - the floors stayed wet and dirty because of rain. One bathhouse does have a laundry, which we used and everything worked as it should. We did experience a lot of heavy rain during our stay which caused our site to wash mud and water to our door.
The sites are well spaced, electric good, great water pressure. OTA TV was hit or miss. AT&T cell service and LTE was good. The park has nice paved trails that lead to the tent sites, bathhouses and lake area.
I do not believe they had/have a camp host which may account for why our fire pit looks as if it has been some time since last cleaned.
I do want to give another big thank you to the gentleman at Burrell's (?) Automotive, a few miles from the campground. We had a mechanical problem with our vehicle and he stopped what he was doing to help and get us going again.
NOTE: On weekends this park and lake both become VERY crowded! - dtaylor

I stayed here for several days and had reservations for more, but left early for other reasons. The camp ground areas are very nice with a lake in the mountains with good views. I have a 40' pusher and while I made it through both loops, loop #1 is extremely tight and 40's in my view shouldn't be allowed on this loop and originally in #41. Loop #2 is better and finally stayed on site #15. 30 amp hook up worked as it should and has water, but didn't use as I'm already winterized. The views are nice, roads paved, extra pad for a tent and gravel, wooded, picnic table, fire ring, and nicely cleared for rear overhang of the pusher. Originally, I was in loop #1, site #41, site is easy to back into (once in that area), but a large oak wouldn't allow for awnings to be put out on the passenger side of the coach, the Ranger quickly agreed to move me to loop #2, with about 3 sites for my size, I chose site #15. The sites on this weekend in this park were about 95% occupied with everything you can imagine. The State Park shop was about the best I've seen to date and PR's friendly. The drive lanes were covered with leaves and difficult to see the drive through the loops, which again, are supper narrow, but I'll chalk that up to all the leaves falling this time of year and harder to keep up with to keep clean. My main issue with this S/P other than the tight fit is that the interior of the showers/restrooms needing a major make over with additions to hang your clothes, towels, shampoo and soap, etc. The sinks in the restroom area also need a major update. The shower/restroom area was somewhat cleaned each day, but a bit more time spent on it could have improved this. I did use the showers in the morning and night, of course the restrooms at various times of the day during my stay. If the restrooms/showers were in better condition, I would have rated my stay to 9, but rating it at 5 just for this issue. I'm referencing the loop #2 RR/shower area. - gsc66

This is a convenient location, and it was not unsafe, but the campground area is a mess. When you first pull in you see a pond with a gazebo, a pool that was not opened yet, and the building that houses the office. So far so good. Then you drive down to the entrance of the campground, and you wish you were staying somewhere else. The road is bumpy, and not good. The sites are the same, with little shoots of grass between the gravel. It was hard for my husband to level, and do all the hook ups. The cabins looked cute, but I wasn't inside any; however, they are in the midst of the campers. Enough said..... One more thing, ducks wandering all around, I didn't mind them, but you might. - Jessicadez

Stayed in a family cabin, had all the necessities! Very clean, trundle bed was a little old, but my sister and I both slept comfortably! Second night her adult son joined us, and he slept well in the loft. Heater for the chilly nights was needed! Very nice staff, very enjoyable stay! We were in town for the Music Song Festival, so did not use the room much during the day, but was a GREAT base for the festival! - Gapch1024

Seven nights at $200 was just too good to be true. No one to check you in - one sheet of information waiting in a box at Village Office door. Owner or Operator had white truck you'd see now and then but no contact was made with me. Office was never opened when I stopped by. Village housed permanent residents in run-down trailers. RV sites were small and cramped. Pond had fish but board walk over it was rickety and needed repair. Pool was old and needed surface debris and bug removal. We did it ourselves because it just wasn't being done by anyone else. No ambience at all and not what I considered a nice place to relax outdoors and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature. I can only reference the RV area because I did not see the tent sites or go inside a cabin. I kept my shades drawn because there was nothing I wanted to look at. I love Brevard but never again at Adventure Village. - fritzwich

Nice owners, its a bit out of the way, but is well worth it. You can walk over to where you want to fish and don't have to drive. We will go back again. - campamytime

The Campgrounds very run down, and looks nothing like web page what so ever. The restrooms are nothing more then upgraded outhouses and NOT clean at all. The shower house is an outdoor wooden shack with a screen door covered with several layers of plastic so you can not see inside. We attempted to talk to owners and they were NOT concerned at all. - John4nc

This place has been out of business since 2004 or 2005. I think it is a trailer park if it is even still around. - bigdiesel81

Very nice state campground! We stayed at site #5. Only thing that I did not like about the campground was the loop road. The loop road was not in good shape. Another camper could not back into site #8 due to the condition of the loop road and the trees. With our 33 ft RV, it was stressful driving thru the winding loop but we made it without hitting any trees. Watch out for drain ditches on the sides of the loop road! For this reason, we would probably not stay here again although we loved the site itself. The natural bridge trail was nice and we did it with 3 dogs and 3 kids but it can be tricky and slippery in sections. In my opinion, site #2 is easiest to back into. Site #3 is not bad either. Site #4 is a nice pull thru. Our site #5 is hard to get into if you have a big rig but wonderful site once you are in! Bathrooms were very clean but not updated. Two out of 3 toilets in the ladies' restroom were out. Showers were clean (no doors / just curtains). Park is thrash free which means that thrash cans have been removed. Pack it in / Pack it out. - Tatiana

Although this park is small it is a great getaway for rest with trails and a park museum. It allows easy acess to two great lakes. Easy to make Reservations through state parks web site. We stayed in the RV section and camped in a tent (tent section was full of scouts but they were quite a mouses) but we now have a popup trailer for our next visit this fall. Good for a stop over on hwy 11 or a week of rest!! - goldfarmer

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
