Poor water pressure

Pleasant campground, lots of room between sites. The water pressure was not satisfactory and we couldn’t take showers in our camper. The Internet isn’t high speed and we couldn’t get it to work unless no one was using it very early in the morning. If the water pressure were better, I would consider coming back, but it might be a deal breaker.

Beautiful campground

We stayed here this past weekend and absolutely loved it. Our site was #40 and it was right on the lake. There is a skunk that comes up to your site at night but he doesnt bother anyone as long as you dont scare it. Very beautiful and peaceful campground. Friendly staff. Definitely going to return again.

Cute, Friendly Campground

Love this family owned campground!! The sites weren't right on top of each other, but you can definitely see your neighbors with ease. The family that owns it lives on site. They have a pancake breakfast on the weekends, which was nice. They also have a store on site that has everything you didn't know you forgot!! Bathrooms were quite a walk from our site, so we drove to it when needed. The campground is pet friendly!! Dump station on site was convenient!

Mountain Serenity

Unique campground with basic amenities. Close access to trails and there are multiple waterfalls on the property. The campsites are on the close side but the environment is top notch.

Quiet campsite with shade

This is a lovely campground and it is laid out well to provide privacy and shade on the sites. Our campsite was overlooking the water which was great. We were travelling through from NC to FL and enjoyed mountain biking and hiking in the area. 

There is wifi near the information office and a table to sit outside under a big tree whilst you catch up on anything urgent

Beautiful Views

We spent an evening at Mile High Campground while traveling through the Blue Ridge Parkway and Smoky Mountain National Park. The campsite was great, right off the Parkway, beautiful sprawling views, and quite/private spaces.

Very Close to the Blue Ridge Parkway

Nice find within a mile of the BRP.  A narrow trail means privacy, be careful heading down to avoid the rocks in the way.  The only downfall is the closeness to the highway, which can be noisy until later when the traffic slows down.

Amazing

Friendly staff, nice view, little small places for big rigs, but I would recommend

Very nice location

The walk from parking Roth’s camp sites was easy and not far. The campsites are decent sizes and decent space between sites. Unfortunately it rained the entire time we camped otherwise would have been perfect. Will definitely come back to these sites again.

Dude, that’s a bear

We love this place, and generally camp along the trail head. The falls are cool and it is a decent hike. There is a lot of traffic heading to the falls, so be aware if you’re camping off the trail.

We found a lot of garbage that we packed out. Please pack out your trash. While there this most recent time, we were stalked by a bear trying to enter our camp. It made repeated attempts to come into our camp and we chased it away, but it lingered.

Fortunately, we were close enough to the parking lot to leave our cooler in the car. It’s a great place to camp.
