3 Parks near Swannanoa, North Carolina
Nov 2014 - $45.00
Average KOA except this one is next to a busy four lane highway and a train that makes passes by the park several times a day. Impossible to sleep through the train horn which blows from one end of the campground to the other at least two times per night. Off season stay meant not many others here when we were but the 50 amp spaces are narrow and back to back so in season you will be inches away from another RV directly behind you. We would not stay again, instead preferring somewhere quieter. - Snidely Whiplash

We had a pull thru site in the front section of the park that was good sized and clean, with all utilities in good shape. We were escorted to our site by friendly staff and although there were lots of trees, we were able to get satellite reception. We really enjoyed the breakfast that was tasty and inexpensive. The only downside is the train traffic across the highway, with horns through the night. Ashville has many excellent attractions, including the Biltmore Mansion, which is amazing and beautiful. - ronboett

We had a wonderful pull through site--on the dam between the river and the lake. About 30 ducks were around periodically. We had a heavy rain and the river was up, so we had to ask for the alternative emergency route since the only way in to our site was over 2 low-water bridges. You may laugh but several years ago in MO we had to bug out before a wall of water came to our campground. We would stay here again. - Pat and Rex

We stayed at this park in the first part of May. It was beautifully cool and very nicely landscaped, with level graveled pads. Our site was amazingly private.
A note, the entry street is through a residential neighborhood and quite steep/narrow. Just when you think you might be lost, the sign for the campground appears.
It's a mountainous campground, so the internal roads (paved) are quite steep, but after check-in, one of the staff cheerfully guides new arrivals in and helps direct the back-in process very efficiently.
We were very, very pleased with everything there and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone or to go back for a repeat visit. - Paul Elliott

Great park and great people. Roads a tad steep but go slowly and take your time. You are guided to your site and welcomed warmly. The grounds are kept spotless by a nice young man. Good fenced dog run and doggie bag stations through tout the park. We will be back in the future. - User1308

Beautiful park. The roads are very steep, but don't let it scare you away. We had a lovely site with a concrete pad, picnic table and a lawn tucked among the trees. The staff was very friendly and the young man that escorted us to our site helped me with backing in as we are not very experienced (note: his instructions are 1000% better than those my husband gives!). The location is convenient to all that Asheville has to offer and an easy day trip to Great Smoky Mountain National Park. They are very dog friendly. - Tvl Junky

The campground is closed. I talked to the owners today, and they said that it is unknown at this time if and when the campground will reopen under new ownership. I hope it does, as this was our favorite campground in the Asheville area. - JavanMichael

What a deal! A little close together for the drive throughs, but you get 50 AMPS, sewage, water, TV and Wi-Fi. Nice grassy area surrounded by trees just off the interstate. There is a couple of trains that run a couple times at night, but the two other local CGs have the same problem. Some would consider the train nostalgic and not be bothered. A very nice RV store with all the things you may need. This is a trailer sales and service dealership with a mechanic on site. We stay here every time we come to Asheville. - reccarey

This park is right off I-40 and very convenient to Asheville, Black Mountain and many other beautiful locations in the area. It is not an RV resort by any means. It is an older campground with level, full hookup sites. You will not find a lot of amenities here. If you need a pool, entertainment, etc, this is not the place for you. If you want an inexpensive, easy to get to place to park your rig while you see the awesome sites around, it will do nicely. We left each morning early: by 9 a.m., and did not return until 7 or 8. Folks are very nice and have a nice supply of RV supplies. Other necessities can be found within minutes of the area. - twins89
