Stayed for a month. Quiet campground location. Super friendly managers. Close to Bryson City with cute shops and cafes (Cork and Bean was our local place and Mountain Brew has great wraps). Eleven miles from NOC whitewater rafting and kayaking. Five miles to Fontana Lake for fishing and the famous Tsali mountain bike/horse riding trails. Had a blast and would come back if we are in the area again.
We stayed at Red Gate for a month while looking for property to purchase. The manager/owner was the sweetest lady. It's a no-frills campground, but clean and tidy. Most spots are shaded by large trees. Plus they recycle. Great location across from a winery and minutes from downtown Hendersonville with cute shops and cafes. Around 20 minutes to Chimney Rock. We plan to come back here and stay.
