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…

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...

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…

Great Location for family and hikes!

Beautiful campground! Right by the river, which makes for wonderful sleeping at night. There is a swimming hole and a fishing hole, both well-maintained. Campground hosts were very nice. Lots of trees for some cool coverage from the sun. About a 30 minute drive from Mount Mitchell, and it's a…

Beautiful mountain campground

The staff here is friendly and attentive. They do an excellent job cleaning the bathrooms/showers and maintaining the trails and roads. Upon arrival, a staff member escorted us to our campsite and offered to help us back our tiny teardrop into the site. Sweet. The site we had was fairly level and…

Nice spot for trout fishing

Lots of sites for camping. Pros: nice fishing area for trout. Has a swimming hole for the warmer days. 2 playgrounds for the little ones. Nice bike/hiking trail they leads to the swimming hole. Super friendly owners. Cons: extremely small bath house, that is unisex. Doesn’t really have a store…

Awesome sites/camping cabins and GREAT river tubing experiences

The staff here is INCREDIBLY friendly and the check-in building/store is small but mighty, offering items like local honey, local preserves and camping/swimming/tubing accessories.

We stayed in the camping cabins located on the hill behind the store. It was so quiet & offered a beautiful view…

Awesome little campground and park

Relatively small campground but well maintained. Some sites are very well screened and others are very exposed. Depending on weather and wether or not you have solar panels on your rig, these open spaces can be a blessing or a curse. Look at the site photos, they’re accurate.
Bathhouse was…

Nice park, hilly sites

Really nice facility near town. There are a lot of uneven campsites, so bring your leveling blocks. That said, great campground. The facilities were clean, the park was well kept and the train whistles were far enough away that they didn’t interrupt your sleep! No real hiking but there was boat…

Awesome place, especially if you have kids

Stayed in the Creekside Campground. It’s not a large campground, but that’s ok since it shares one bathhouse (four showers in individual shower rooms around the back side of the facilities). There’s a sink outside the bathhouse for dishes and a laundry room with two washers and two dryers (one was…

Canoe In Camping!

We decided to do some cold weather camping so we made our reservation in December, packed up our bags and a canoe and went off to Lake James. It. Was. Awesome. For one, we were the only people at the "boat only access" sites. Secondly, the bathroom was super clean and the sites were awesome.…
