Located along 1600 ft of the North Toe River, Buck Hill Campground is the perfect place for families to relax and play! We offer sixty-nine large shady RV sites, each equipped with picnic tables, fire pits, and full hookups with 20, 30, and 50 amp service.
The campground features 144 acres of hiking trails in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Enjoy a lazy ride down the river on one of our river tubes, spend the day fishing from our trout filled waters stocked by the State Hatchery, or enjoy a challenging hike to the top of Buck Hill Mountain!
Primitive tent campers will enjoy our open grassy fields overlooking our pond, as well fire rings, picnic tables, water spigots, and several wooden deck pads. For those that like to camp but prefer to sleep on a bed as opposed to pitching a tent, enjoy our camping cabins!! And if you prefer “glamping” then our new tiny home cabins provide all the amenities of home! If you are looking for a quiet family & pet friendly campground, you’ve just found your new home away from home!
Staying at Buck Hill Campground
Buck Hill Campground is located near Newland NC. The family owned, Buck Hill campground has been with the same owner for the last 10 years. We spoke with both husband and wife while on this trip - both as friendly as could be!
Upon arrival, we were a bit confused because there was no office to check into. After riding around and exploring the (TOTAL) available 5 or 6 tent sites, we chose the one we wanted and asked around for the owners. We easily found the family working near the gathering room and they immediately made us feel welcome. They informed us about laundry, bathhouses, the playground and gathering room etc.
We chose the only tent site on the water - which was phenomenal! The site had a fire ring only, but we were ok without a picnic table, in exchange for the view! We had water and greenery surrounding us on 3 sides. We positioned our tent just right and blocked the RV's from behind us - leaving us feeling like we were on a private peninsula. It didn't take long for kiddos to be playing in the shallow river water (finding a snake) and us to have camp set up.
The campground has 2 bathhouses, both containing toilets, sinks, showers and a deep sink for washing. We needed firewood - and upon suggestion from an RV neighbor, looked for the blue topped golf cart - which was up at their house - on site. We pulled into their driveway and the owner told us he would bring us wood to our site.
We enjoyed a calm, quiet evening in this campground. The views were fantastic and the fireflies beyond words! With so much darkness, the other side of the river looked like a sparkling Christmas tree with the fireflies dancing their magic! We would come back again just for this site!
The tiny homes and cabins looked enticing, but the other tent sites were a bit rough. There were several platforms, which are so helpful for wet camping trips. There were workers actively building a new cabin as we were there! We would surely come back for the riverfront site - it was beyond beautiful!
