We have been trying to find campgrounds close to home to make a quick weekend and Curtis Creek didn’t disappoint! Fairly quick drive, groceries in Old Fort, gravel road and you are there. Not very big but that was great for us. Several hikes right from the campground. We stayed near the road which was fine at night but was really busy during the day with hunters so that was kind of a bummer and probably the only reason I knocked it a star. Kids loved playing at the creek and will try to get a site on that side next time!
Super clean grounds at the south edge of the Pisgah. Friendly hosts, and great hiking all around.
If you are feeling adventurous and don’t mind a dirt road, leave the campground and go north, up the hill. Five miles of gorgeous mountain switchbacks along the creek. And just when you think the road doesn’t go anywhere, you turn onto the Blue Ridge Parkway.
The sites are very clean, but the standard and RV sites are not private. If you want some privacy right on the creek bank, get Primitive site 1.
The road is a little rough to get there, but even a car should have no problems -just might need to dodge a few potholes. Beautiful country with creek nearby and multiple trails of varying lengths and difficulty are easily accessible. Love this part of the forest!
The Pisgah forest is ridiculously beautiful. It’s especially colorful in the fall. Highly recommended to people who like to hike and waterfalls. There’s also a wildlife management station nearby that’s great for kids.
