We stayed here for four nights while we explored the Asheville area. This is a very nice campground. Tall trees are everywhere. The roads were newly paved which made for a smooth ride. However, the sites weren't very level; lots that we saw sloped quite a bit. There are trails all over the area that you can ride your bike on or hike on. The lake is a short walk away from the camp sites. The NC Arboretum and the Blue Ridge Parkway very close and easy to get to. Yes, it's a 10-15 minute drive into Asheville, BUT staying here was worth it. It's quiet, clean, pretty, and the hosts/volunteers were nice and always had a smile on their faces.
It is what it is: a giant gravel lot with hookups (very nice hookups I might add). Once you get past that, it is a fine place. It's a little bit off Hwy 101, near what looks like a horse/livestock area, and a quiet neighborhood. Sites were adequate size. (Although I was told they "double up" during big events, yikes). Roads were wide making pulling in/out a snap. We stayed here while visiting San Francisco and the Marin area. Sure it's a little far, but the campgrounds nearer to the city are twice as expensive. To us it was the right combination of price and proximity.
Those rating this park with 10's need to get out and travel more. Not to say this park was bad, it just doesn't deserve 10's. All sites were back in (that I saw, maybe they were hiding). The road is a little skinny, so even with our 25ft TT backing in was a pain. (disclaimer: my skills aren't the best) All the hookups were at the back, running along a short fence. I had to stretch the sewer hose almost it's entire length. On our site, the water connection was sticking maybe 4 inches out of the ground, and was angled down. I had to dig a little hole around it to keep the water hose from kinking. Not all sites were like this though. Other than that, this park was fine. Quiet and off the highway, but easy to get to. It's near the "Coastal Drive". Staff was really nice. The lady offered us some extra tomtatos and eggs from the garden We came in late, and he showed is to out site, and said we could settle up in the morning. Rate is the Passport American rate.
Only half of the sites are full hookup; we got just a W/E site. Fine by us, only issue was when dumping at the end of our stay, the dump station is on the wrong side if you are following their 1-way road. So we had to break that rule. Sites were on nice grass near a lake, and within a nice neighborhood. The staff also does a good job of keeping it clean. There are 1 or 2 longterm residents. It looked like it could be a fun place to play in the summer (water slides and volleyball) It wasn't crowded for us, but if they happen to fill up it could be a little tight. The park it right along a semi-busy road, making walking the dog around the area a little worrisome, and pulling out a leap of faith. Overall, the price and proximity to downtown (15 minutes if traffic is light) make it a great choice if you are visiting Seattle.
Really nice check in staff. The main building had a small store inside. Gravel roads, gravel pads, almost level. The layout is kind of weird, but that was a good thing to me, since it's a change from the glorified parking lots that many other parks are. There is also a water fall and a small swimming hole that looked nice had it been summer. Would stay again, and would recommend.
Easy access off the highway between Gunnison and Montrose, but no significant road noise. We were there for 3 days, and it was a great "base camp" for our ventures to crested butte, Gunnison, black canyon, and the recreation area. Close to the lake if you are a boater. Nice staff. They had kind of a weird setup where the pads were really long, and had connections on both sides. The intent being they could park short/medium sized rigs back to back. It wasn't busy, so that wasn't the case for us, but for some reason they still had us back in, even though the other half was empty. Internet was slow, but they tell you that upfront. Overall I would stay there again
This little park is a jewel. Though a bit of a winding road gets you there. It was self check in while we were there. The sites are paved and very well spread out. Which is nice after staying in glorified parking lots of RV parks. There is a nice little lake and a small beach front access. The restrooms were clean as was the shower. I didn't use it, so I can't attest to the quality or strength of the hot water. Of course there is no Wi-Fi or cable, but the peaceful surroundings more than make up for this! We did get local channels with just our antenna up. Overall, a very nice park and we would stay here again.
We stayed here for 6 nights while we explored Anacortes and the San Juan Islands. The rate reflects the winter rate and that we stayed further away from the water. The office staff was very friendly and gave us information on the towns and the ferry schedule. The park itself is very large with mostly level gravel sites. We stayed in the upper park but could still see the water. Our dog enjoyed the hike and bike trail that winded through the park. There isn't much privacy between the sites as they are close together, but not as close as some other parks. You also could hear a lot of traffic noise from Hwy 20, which runs right above the park. Also, the Wi-Fi was very sluggish most of the time. Overall, we liked it and would stay here again.
