All Dirt Roads Lead to……

Mortimer Campground does not disappoint! Hiking, fishing, swimming, and waterfall splashing abound on, and around, this campground. Many of the campsites are situated along Thorps Creek, so the sound of the creek can lull you to sleep. We stayed on site #6, which was on the creek. Two…

Dispersed Camping

We drove in mid day and couldn’t find a spot, unfortunately. All dispersed spots were taken. However, there are parking spaces that you can park in overnight in front of hunting shelters. Just be mindful of how you park and don’t take up handicapped parking.

Cool campground

We stayed at site L12 on the Long Arm Campground #2. The paddle in was ok but there was some boat traffic. The site was very nice, however, it would be better to choose a site from 14 or higher. Sites 11, 12, and 13 are nice but the landing is in a shallow algae filled cove. Not ideal for…

Beautiful!

This was my first-ever camping trip and I’m glad that it was here. We stayed at site 11 in location 2 on the Lake James campgrounds; it’s a paddle-in-only location. Getting there required canoeing in, which was easy for us to do on the lake’s dock. (We rented canoes from CBS a ways away.) The trip…

Close to Asheville, off the beaten path

I liked the parking right next to the river. Remote and secluded even with other campers staying here. Bathhouse on site, a short walk from our site. They have some electric access but not the type an RV plugs into. 

Check your GPS, ours was off a little on finding the exact address.

Great family campground

This was a perfect place for a weekend getaway. We stayed at a tent site and were happy with the amenities. There’s a pond for fishing and swimming, trails to hike, and playgrounds for the kids. The only downside is the sites are quite close to one another and the golf carts can be loud, although…

Fun... Enough

Just a very small campground, seems to be family friendly with just enough amenities. There's a playground, sand boxes and paved semi level RV pads. I wouldn't come back but the place is very quiet. If you're into that...

Nice Campground near Asheville

I actually had a better experience then I expected! This was my first experience with KOA and I had mixed reviews. Pros: Staff was super friendly, it was so nice to be assorted to my site at check and to have help backing in. I requested that since I have a pop-up camper and no bathroom that I be…

Relaxing

This place is a jewel. The owners were present and super friendly. The grounds were extremely well kept and the bathrooms were impressive. We will definitely return.

Friendly Staff but little high priced

We had a good time here this past weekend. The staff is really friendly however I thought the price was on the high side when the pool hasn’t opened yet. Make sure you bring leveling blocks. Also if you want to do the water activities and water slide that is extra and you will need to purchase an…

On the fly

My husband and I took a road trip and needed to find a spot to car camp last minute in the area. The narrow road to go up/down is alittle sketchy but we made it. The first two spots were taken so we drove to the end where it seperated to private drives. There was a fire pit and a trail that we…

Right on the river

Older campground yet clean facilities. Right n the River very tight entrance not suited for bigger rigs. Campsites are tight to get in and out of as well. Older full timers in the grounds but they are very nice people staying in them. Overall a nice little spot.
