38 Parks near Swannanoa, North Carolina
Jun 2016 - $40.00
Older campground that could use some updating. Very busy with in and outs - close to multiple highways and the Biltmore Mansion. Paved pad sites. No fire ring. Bath houses are GI showers - not impressed. Has a pool to enjoy. Good cable channels. Wi-Fi was okay. If traveling through, it is a good stop over for a couple of days. - MAVetter

Good site for visiting Asheville, but not for camping. Very tight. One neighbor's hookups were under my awning, the other's picnic table was only a few feet outside my bedroom window. WiFi was very weak, could not even open photos on Facebooks at times. The staff was very friendly, but could not reach them by phone when someone locked the ladies restroom early one morning. Restrooms/showers were clean but needed a face lift. - Threepdr

This is a nice place to stay if you want to tour Asheville and the Biltmore Estate. Some of the spots are very tight, but others have more space. What you can't see from the campground map is how very steep the area is, so that a campsite that looks like it directly behind you may be a fifty feet higher or lower. You may or may not end up with a nice view, depending upon the slope. The biggest attraction is the proximity to Biltmore, the Farmers Market, the North Carolina Arboretum, and other area sights. If you buy tickets for Biltmore, you get a two-day pass at the price of a one-day pass. So, you can spend one day touring the house and formal gardens and a second day exploring some of the 8,000 acres of the estate. We enjoyed our visit and would recommend to others. (The laundry rooms were very small and could only handle a tiny amount of laundry, so we took ours to a laundromat in town.) - JBick

Beautiful rv park that offers stunning views and in close proximity of all that Asheville offers. This relatively small campground classifies its sites as either premium or deluxe. The deluxe sites offer shaded sites with filtered views of the French broad River valley and distant mountains. The premium sites have tremendous, unobstructed views of the river and mountains but are not very shaded. Both types are full hookup. The gravel road up to the campground is a little narrow and a little steep in spots but I had no issue pulling our 31 foot travel trailer up or down. The sites are all fairly level and have a fire ring and picnic table. The campground also has some decent trails to explore. - Denver James

This park is absolutely gorgeous! It is quiet and peaceful. The sites are huge and far apart. They are slanted in such a way that they give you maximum privacy. The premium sites have a gorgeous view of the valley and mountains. And, if you have a regular site in the trees, they have a nice viewing area with benches where you can relax and watch the sun set. The bathrooms were individual bathrooms with a toilet and shower in each. The tent sites were secluded and in the trees. There are not a lot of kids screaming and running around like at a KOA because there is not a lot of kid things to do but this makes it perfect for people like my husband and I who want the peace and quiet to enjoy nature. The only problem with this campground is that it is up a mountain and maneuvering a big rig can be difficult at times. There is about a 1/2 mile curvy, bumpy, narrow, gravel road leading into the campground and backing into a few of the sites was pretty tight. If you have a big rig (especially a fifth wheel), I would avoid spots P8 and D9-13. We had site P8 and, although it was (in my opinion) the best site in the park, parking was extremely difficult due to the narrow road with a drop off on the far side. Don't get me wrong, there were plenty of big rigs up there. Just be aware that that maneuvering can be tight. This is not the place to be if you are not confident of you RV driving skills. Other than the roads, this park is my ideal RV park and I highly recommend it. - AgilityCardiMom

A beautiful park with a beautiful view of the mountains and river below. Happily we did not have to go up the hill in a big rig, but no problem with our travel trailer. We could have used an extra 5 feet of sewer hose to permit us to fit the site better but we were OK with that. We would definitely stay here again. - 1coloradan

Smaller, older park, but had all the basics covered, except laundry facilities. Wifi worked prettying good. Owner was very friendly and helped out with activities in the area. Sites were a little close, but we were gone during the day, so it was okay. This park is not a vacation destination but it worked out well for seeing the sites of Asheville. - Sally Chew

Older park with tighter turns and you are close to one another. However as a base for the Blue Ridge Parkway it is excellent. WE had a pull through and 50 amp service. There is cable. - rolling homeless

$250/wk. Pad sites are split concrete with gravel in middle. Tow car must be parked perpendicular at front, 1/2 on drive. Drives are all gravel and adequate width. Concrete patio w/table. Sites are very close & driver's side too close to pedestal to open one storage bay on the slide. Owner very friendly & helpful. WiFi was good but must login again each time laptop is closed. DISH satellite SD reception good but no HD for locals (out of Greenville SC)--probably a DISH issue. Easy to miss entry beside Mobil gas station, so watch closely for it. Surrounded by trees, few inside.
This is a convenience park, virtually inside the city, not a destination. No pool or stuff for kids. - ragtop45

Pad site was unlevel, had to do a major adjust side to side. Dump station is located and installed backwards going the wrong way on road. No gravel but mud beside the station and the water connection to backwash the black tank had a nozzle that matched or hooked up to nothing. - MichaelRay

The office staff was so friendly and helpful that I hate to give a bad review but this was possibly the worst campground we have ever been in. It is right next to the interstate and is, by far, the noisiest we have ever stayed in and we've stayed at many campgrounds near busy interstates. The interior roads are not really big rig friendly but they are doable. However, when exiting, RVs have to go both ways and there isn't room to pass so you have to hope you're the only exiting at that time. Sites are gravel and dirt, a bit messy when it rains. One tree at our site needed trimming. We would have had to back out of the site so we wouldn't scratch the side and top of the rig. Fortunately, The rig across from us pulled out and we were able to pull through that site, then make the tight exit turn. We will not return. - dickens

This came up as a Good Sam recommendation - three 9's.
I have read the reviews and do not understand...
The site is on top of I-40 highway, very noisy.
The sites are very small, on top of your neighbors and a heavy slant.
Compared to many of the KOAs that we have stayed at - roughly all around, less facilities for the kids. - BettieFordonTour

This is an old campground which has been here for years, but it is very picturesque. It's very close to town and Chimney Rock Park. Most of this campground is set up for seasonals. They save a few sites on the river for transients. The interior roads are narrow and bumpy. I think a big rig would have trouble. The sites are pretty short, but we were fine in our 33' motorhome. There's a constant roar from the river, but it would be great for kids in the summer...huge boulders to climb on! The bathrooms have not been updated in years. We used the ones in the far section, and they were functional but very rustic.....but lots of hot water. Their reviews don't say they have WiFi, but they do, and it worked fine. - mom2wildlife

Access is by winding mountain roads and campground itself is very hilly. Some sites are right on the river which is delightful and perfect for a cool dip on a hot day. There is a playground for children, and the campground is close to Chimney Rock State Park and Lake Lure. The owners are so very helpful. We needed a nut for one of our bikes, and the owner drove to town to get one for us. The washers and dryers were great since we had laundry to do. The sites are shady and well-maintained. There are many permanent renters so plan in advance. The park filled while we were there, and many were turned away. - BarbaraJohnson

Owners were extremely nice but I agree with the 5 reviews below. Not really big rig friendly: you can get in, but it's very, very tight. Only 2 sites with 50 amp. Oddly the site for motorhome only was 30 amp. It worked well all week though. Everything is old and could use some cleaning. More permanent sites than daily. It's a great area: very peaceful. Would stay here again but those 9-star ratings here are misleading. - BAR and Me

Paved roads with gravel sites. Patio and table. Dog walk is a narrow strip along the back. FHU with TV and Wi-Fi. Couldn't connect to Wi-Fi or were dropped soon after connection. Hotspot for Verizon signal not good. Dumpster filled to almost overflowing. Good for an overnight, but wouldn't stay any time unless I had something in the area to draw me there. Ate at a Cracker Barrel close by. - SerenityRVing

We saw the rating on this website compared to the others campgrounds in this area. That is why we chose this one. We did not get to use any of the amenities, as it was a short stay. It was a nice campground. Would stay here again. Coming in the front gate is a little tight, but manageable. The sites were mainly level. We only stayed there so we could do the Zipline. - Honeybear & Sugarbear

Campground has two sections. One part is larger pull-throughs and back-ins. WiFi works great in this section.
Section two has a few short pull-throughs on the entrance road, with the other sites back-ins. These back-ins are short and you are only a few feet from those backed in behind you. WiFi is slow in these lots.
The length of your RV determines which section you allowed to stay in...yes I said allowed. If your rig is 36 ft and above, you will allowed to camp in these large pull-throughs/back-ins. Under 36 ft. don't even think about these lots.
On our last visit, many of these nicer lots were vacant. I asked to move to one of these and was refused. This is when I found out about their length requirements. Age of vehicle/cost of vehicle doesn't matter. Just the length. FYI-Our coach is a 33 ft 2014 Winnebago.
We have traveled through 38 states so far and this is the only park with such rules. I thought segregation had been outlawed.
I don't know if we will return here or stay else where. This experience has certainly left a bad taste with us. - Winnebago Joe

We're here for a month which is reflected by the monthly rate. Park workers do not have the skills necessary to manage this park!!! We had to move our car numerous time at all hours, to let their team guide visitors into the sites next to us. Park workers were not too good at providing directions. It is a real comedy watching the park workers provide assistance to other campers, as long as it is not next to your site. - David & Lynda

We stayed one night, coming back from Myrtle Beach to Kentucky. The Bathroom/Shower House was very clean and modern. Laundry machines were convenient. The campground is located near I-26 near Asheville. The site are close together and most of the sites are completely graveled. - BJackson

We had a large paved pull-through site (13) near the lake. It was extremely convenient, but had no shade and was not very private. When the back-in sites along the lake were occupied, it blocked our view. Fletcher is a great location, right in between Asheville and Hendersonville, and the park is easy to reach. The staff was friendly; they even help you park! The owners do a great job landscaping the sites, and even though they are adding new ones, noise was never a problem. The pool was inviting; restrooms were modern and clean. We will definitely return, but next time we'd request one of the gravel sites in the back where there's more shade and privacy. - Lyn T

We camped at this campground over Memorial Day Weekend in 2000, 2001, and 2002 and never saw the owner being disrespectful to anyone. That being said, he ran a tight ship and seemed to be everywhere. We drove through Lake Lure on August 13, 2005 and everything in the campground is gone. The office, buildings, cabins, nothing remains. Grass is growing where the buildings used to be. We really liked this campground and it made us a little sad to see it closed. - Lee W

This campground property was sold last October. The property is no longer a campground. Try Hickory Nut Falls Family Campground or River Creek Campground. - weekendlady50

Many seasonal/permanent campers, but there was plenty of room for all. The river rises and falls according to the dam water release decisions at Lake Lure, which is the upstream source of water. The owners live on site and are very friendly and helpful folks. Nights are quiet and everything works well. We will return. The campground is near a huge Ingle's Supermarket between Lake Lure and Rutherfordton, and the road south connects with new Highway #74 to Shelby and east, or I-26 going west. - onejimmiedog

This is a delightful small campground on the Broad River. We had no trouble backing our 34 ft. fifth wheel into our site. The owners also are on site and manage the park. The bathrooms, while basic, are obviously well tended. Tent sites are directly on the river. The main draw here is the river which runs quickly when the dam is open which is usually Monday, Wednesday and Friday. For a $10 per person you can rent a large tube and get shuttled up river for a two hour ride back. Five of us did it while we stayed here and then twelve family members returned while we attended a reunion close by. This is not a "resort" type place but more of a retreat. Even though the river is the main draw, this is safe, quiet, and rural. We stayed for six days and would gladly return. - TailsAwagging

This park is located in a rural part of western NC, between the Broad River and a small creek. The owner-operators were very friendly. Most sites are shaded and level, about average size, with gravel pads for the rigs and concrete for the picnic tables. Most of the waterfront sites are reserved for monthlies. There's a dog walk area, playground, pet walk, and game room with pool tables. The park has propane. No dump station, but it appears that all of the RV sites are full hookup. The river flows at a trickle on weekends, and during the week the dam is opened upstream, which allows tubing and canoeing on the river. If you plan to come here for boating or fishing, be sure to call the park and verify the water flow for that day. - silvertube

Beautiful, small, and peaceful. The sites are on the river and it's so peaceful. Sites are big with some of the nicest picnic tables I have ever seen. Mostly adults camp here but a few kids are usually running around. Nice dog park and overall a very beautiful place to stay. This is our 3rd visit and we never want to leave. It's close to Mt Mitchell state park and the Blue Ridge Parkway. There is also canoeing and river rafting close by. - Ms Ann

Very nice campground, owners live on site and take great pride in the appearance of this facility. The owners checked us in and were very friendly and helpful. Very spacious sites, very clean bath house/restrooms. There is a small camp supply store with various necessities. Nice pavilion with activities regularly planned, it was S'more Saturday Night, when we visited. I would have normally rated this campground a 9, but due to geography, there is no cell service and each site is limited to 250 meg each 24 hours. As soon as a cell tower or cable is extended to this location, it will quickly rate higher. - Mtncampers

Park is beautiful, peaceful, well manicured/landscaped and very clean. It is obvious the owners take great pride in providing a wonderful camping experience. Sites are full hook up, level, spacious and over half of them back up to a very peaceful stream. Bathhouse was very clean, and the camp store/office offers books and movies on loan. We will be back soon!! - Denver James
