About Hot Springs Campground

Come to where Mother Nature waved her magical wand and created one of the most natural of all wonders, Natural Hot Mineral Waters. Heated deep within the earth, these crystal clear carbonated waters are world famous for their mineral content and legendary healing powers. We pipe these waters to modern outdoor Jacuzzi type hot tubs that are drained and sanitized after each use.

Hot Springs, located in the mountains of Western North Carolina, and cuddled along the banks of Spring Creek and the French Broad River, is a town rich in history and beaming with natural charm, this town serves as an intersection along the historic Appalachian Trail and is part of the Southern Appalachian Mountains.

The heart of Hot Springs, North Carolina, is our 100 acre Resort & Spa. We feature modern Jacuzzi style hot tubs, positioned outside along the tranquil banks of Spring Creek and the French Broad River; our tubs are supplied with a continuous flow of World Famous Natural Hot Mineral Water. We have a nationally certified & state licensed staff of massage therapists on hand to compliment your soaks or for separate service altogether.

Located across the road from the Mineral Baths is the Hot Springs Campground. Here you can find peace of mind with ease and comfort. We feature eight primitive camping cabins, over a hundred tent sites (primitive, group & sites with partial hook up) & Full RV Hookups. On site comfort station features hot showers (seasonal) and clean bathrooms. Our beautiful grounds play host to several large events per year and we have the capacity for many more. Whether you’re coming off a long hike on the Appalachian Trail or just passing through, you don’t want to miss the charm and beauty of the Hot Springs Resort & Spa.

Hot Springs Resort & Spa also offers other lodging options for those looking for a relaxing getaway. We have four luxury suites that have a Jacuzzi style tub with mineral water in the room. We also have a deluxe cabin with a full size outdoor Jacuzzi style tub.

North Carolina beauty at its best

Hot Springs was such a great experience. The Camping was not the nicest place we have stayed but it is well maintained. The water is amazing. Enjoy!

Very nice, except the train

Right on the French Broad River, you can hear the river all day and night it is so peacful. Beautiful campground with great campstore right at the entrance that sells everything. Large campsites with great privacy foliage, picnic tables, & fire rings. One drawback, the train runs along side the entire campground, day and night. I still recommend this campground.

Small town, big opportunities for fun

This privately-owned campground in the heart of Hot Springs, NC is the perfect place to end a rafting trip on the French Broad River or take a break from an AT thru hike. We met some friends for a full weekend of water fun, including a rafting day and a kayaking day on the French Broad. If you don’t own your own equipment or the skills to navigate a Class III/IV river, there are plenty of companies in the local area that can provide you a guide.

While not the most scenic of campgrounds, it has all the things any rafter or hiker needs – bathrooms/pit toilets and showers, picnic table, and fire pit…and is located just a few minutes walk from a few great restaurants, wifi access at the public library/coffeehouse, and the Hot Springs Spa and Resort (if you want/need a massage and a soak in one of their natural spring water tubs). There are also a few cabins on the property for those not into roughing it.

Most campsites can accommodate multiple tents or sizable RV’s. You have a choice between non-electric and electric sites, which is great for those of us who run on solar power.

While not busy at all during the off-season, this campground can be full on during the high season. Reservations weren’t necessary, but they do take them during the busy times of the year.

Great weekend

this place was really nice. Campsites were okay. Bathrooms were nice but the hot springs spa was the best. Can’t wait for my next visit. This site says you can’t have dogs but I saw dogs all around us at the campground. Idk.

Nice little campground.

Nice and quite and right by the river. The AT is nearby and the hot springs spa is a must hit after a long weekend of hiking and canoeing

Hidden gem!

We have spent many great times at Hot Springs camp grounds! Can play on the French broad river and then take a soak in the hot mineral tubs!
