Camp Driftwood is located on the French Broad River, just a 12 minute drive to downtown Asheville. A very convenient location, easy in and out, you park at your site and Weaverville shopping and conveniences are just 3 miles away. The camp offers a bathhouse near the cabins and porto-jon on the southern more remote end. There are two beaches one for swimming, tubing and boating access the other for fishing and chillin dog friendly. The sound of the water rapids will captivate you. Located below Marshall highway (river road) you do hear vehicles mostly during work hours and across the wide river there is a train, super cool WNC feature, but some things to be aware of. The tent sites all come with a rock fire ring and picnic table, the first 4 sites have power and there is hose water at the bathhouse. The camp stretches 1/4 mile along the bank of the river.

We came here for our honeymoon for 2 nights. The camp is easy to find, located about 10 minutes outside of Asheville. The French Broad is literally right in front of your campsites. Very peaceful and clean setting. Dean was there to help with any questions we had. Super great guy! We will definitley be back and would recommend Camp Driftwood to anyone looking for a nice, quiet get away. Thank you so much!
We absolutely loved this spot! All of the campsites are right on the river. Dean is extremely nice and helpful. Tons of firewood is available for $10 (he accepts cash or PayPal). The spots have numbers so it’s easy to tell which you’re at and Dean will give you a heads up about which ones are available! We just choose the best looking one that was open.
Was very easy getting in and out of this campsite. The view was nice and you’re literally inches from the river. It was 30F when we stayed but I would love to return in the warmer months and get in the river or kayak.
We booked via Airbnb and the owner was very helpful and friendly.
I found this campground through airbnb. They have tent camping as well as two cottages. The cottages are titled "Paddlers Paradise- Camp Driftwood Cottage" and have cable TV, a laptop friendly work space, heating, air conditioning, and a private entrance. The tent camping sites are titled "Camp Site- Camp Driftwood" and have fire rings, picnic tables, and access to a shared bathhouse and common area. Both of these have free parking and are located right on the French Broad River. The water is easily accessible and tubing is frequently seen along the bank. The entrance to the area is directly off the road, but has a VERY steep decline immediately following. Be cautious in driving too far up the bank as the path becomes soft, especially after a good rain. Overall, a small and personable camping option that is worth a visit!
