Private campground with a state park feel

Located directly off Blue Ridge Parkway milepost 324.8 Spruce Pine N.C. Site are level well shaded with a little separation from neighboring sites. Full hookups including sewer, which was a first for us, and clean bathhouse. The only real knocks I would give it are the gas powered golf carts they rent to those that want them. Noisy and smelly with kids behind the wheel just joyriding not really going anywhere but back and forth by our campsite. Proximity to all the Parkway has to offer is it’s greatest asset. Within minutes of a u-pick apple orchard, Linville Falls, Grandfather Mtn., The towns of Banner Elk, Boone, and Blowing Rock. Our site overlooked a heavily wooded valley that lit up every night with fireflies. It was hard for me to find any negatives.

Wonderful place!

This campground is wonderful! We found it out of an emergency stop and stayed for 5 nights. It is beautiful and has so much for the kids to do. To just let the kids be kids and have fun! We now know where it is and plan to come back. Love it here. My kids, ages 12, 11 and 8 didn’t want to leave! Thanks for having a great spot for my family to make some wonderful memories!

Absolutely beautiful spot on the river

We were able to book our spot just a few hours before arriving, just a one night stay. We got a spot right on the river, and I have to admit it’s one of the most relaxing places I’ve been. There’s a constant sound of rushing waters. We came across two different bathhouses in our loop, one was pretty average and aged a bit. The other was clearly brand new and extremely clean. There’s a swimming spot as well. I’d give this place a 10/10

A true hidden gem!

We took our camper to Emberglow for its maiden voyage. We were straight from the Camping World in Hendersonville. We picked the best place for our first trip. Emberglow is amazing! The pool is the best I’ve been to at any hotel. It isn’t a large campground so the pool wasn’t busy. The bathhouses were amazing with granite countertops, tile floor and walls, along with a beautiful mural. We have since realized that is not the norm in other campgrounds. We were a little spoiled since this was our first impression of camping. Our son enjoyed the jump pad and playing in the creek. There was a volleyball court that we didn’t get to enjoy and they were in the midst of building a playground. A nice dog park was on site also. We can’t wait to return! It was only a 10 minute drive to Lake Lure & Chimney Rock for eating out and exploring.

So many activities!

This was our second trip to Yogi Golden Valley but the first trip with our new camper. We had a wonderful weekend! My family rented a cabin on the creek. Golf carts are a must to get around since the campground is so big! The kids enjoyed the water park, putt putt, gem mining, fishing, crafts and tie dying shirts. There were several activities we didn’t get a chance to do this trip (kayak, laser tag and the playground). We will definitely be back! It’s within an hour drive for us and you can’t beat it!

Noisy and a bit crowded

Across the street from a nice lake and boat launch but no view and a lot of road sounds from the 4 lane highway. Campground is crowded if full but luckily not full when we were there. “Had WiFi”, but it didn’t reach my spot so pretty much useless.

Lovely organic campground

Very clean,natural, beautiful trees , and a nice location. It is run by a very nice family. We were close to amazing waterfalls and hikes in DuPont forest. Short drive to Brevard with great places to eat. The sites are staggered down the hillside and gives you a sense of privacy. The bathrooms were very clean.

Nice spot for a day trip

Lots of walking/hiking trails. Easy enough for families with little ones to enjoy along with something a bit more strenuous for the go getter. The lake great in the summer if you’re looking for a place to take a dip to cool off.

Don’t be fooled by the upper lot!

We found this place by accident and wish we would have known how lovely it was before booking! When you call Fred, ask him if he has any spots in the lower lot. The spots are down in a lovely valley, ample spacing between rigs, lovely creek, gazebos, walking paths. Our kids played everyday in the creek, rode their bikes all around. Blue Ridge Parkway is just 15 mins away, West Asheville about 20 mins away for food, breweries, etc. We’ll happily stay at Hominy Valley RV Park again!

Fabulous location!

We have camped at Davidson River several times. It is in such a prime location if you love hiking to beautiful waterfalls. I can't even count the number of waterfalls that are within a 30min drive. Some are an easy walk right from the road and some are a good hike to get to. The campground is always clean and the sites are well spaced out. There is a nice trail that runs along the river and a swimming hole (the water is always freezing!) with a little rock cliff to jump off of. The river is rocky and shallow so it's fun to play in. Bring a river tube or rent one nearby to enjoy a lazy float downstream! The campground has lots of trees to provide privacy and shade.
