This campground is part of the National Forest Service. The road to the campground is paved except for the last 1/3 of a mile. The campground itself is easy to negotiate and the spaces are usually quite roomy and wooded. The campground is typically quiet and great for families. As for pull-thru sites, there are only a few and that is a bit of a stretch. The back-in sites are easy to negotiate for the most part. I camp here numerous times per year and always have a wonderful time.
Very nice quiet campground. Everyone was extremely nice. It is also easy to get to from I-40 and very close to Asheville. One issue is the road leading to the campground. It is a bit hilly, but the road is extremely narrow. With traffic coming at you, it can be a bit unnerving. Also, the campground is exceptionally hilly. They do have pull thru sites along with back-in but maneuvering around again is extremely tight. I also noticed that in our site, pulling out (I had a pull-thru) the angle is a bit extreme and the jacks in the rear of the camper began to rub the ground. Overall, this is a very nice place to stay but wish they had a bit more room for the sites.
Great campground with a very nice staff. We did have a water leak at the faucet and I told them about it and they got someone there quickly to "try" and rectify the problem. They didn't, but that was fine as the leak was not a problem with our stay. Parking is a problem. Since I have a trailer, there was barely enough space for the trailer and my truck. Many sites had there vehicles blocking part of the road. Access is easy for any size rig (provided there is not a vehicle blocking part of the road). They really need to enforce this to keep the roads clear. The campground itself was very clean and well maintained (well, except for my faucet).
The campground is way too crowded. You can tell that they have tried to cram as many folks into a small area as possible. Very noisy with everyone on top of one another. Can be a tight fit for some rigs. The amenities are nice. One major drawback is that the showers are only open from 8am-7:45pm. Same with the camp store. The prices are a bit high, but that can be expected due to their location (just drive to town and go to Albertsons). I would not camp here again, but find another place outside the park to camp. Yes, it was extremely convenient since you can walk to the lake, trails, etc, but the camping was not a very enjoyable experience (unless you like to feel like a sardine). The front desk staff was ok - not very out going or helpful. The layout of the campground is also VERY confusing. There are two campgrounds with the same name where one is full hookups and the other is not. Just be aware and watch the signs very carefully.
Great location and a very nice campground. Had everything that you would need. Great for kids. Most sites are shaded and good space between your neighbors. The breakfasts are great, as are the dinners. The staff is great when you eat. Now the front desk staff is horrible. Everyone was rude and not very friendly. The good news is that you only need to deal with them once (at check-in). If you can get over that, your stay will be great. Great location for all the sites in the area. Hill City is also a great little place as well. The only time we ran into rude folks was at the campground check-in. Too bad, since that may turn some folks away.
The location of the park is excellent. The campground itself if a very funny layout. There are loops, but the camping spots are just along the side of the road (you just pull off to the side). Many are VERY unlevel. It can also be a very tight squeeze depending on how many folks are camping there. We stayed 2 nights and did not have any issues with noise, neighbors, etc. I am not sure if I would camp here again or just go another 1/4 mile down the road to the KOA.
Great park. Nice and quiet. Lots of hiking. Great place for family to enjoy. Be aware that there are a few spots that will be extremely difficult to back into with a long trailer. Use Google Maps/Earth to take a look before booking your site. Will definitely be camping here again.
