We picked this campground due to it's close proximity to downtown Asheville since it was at the end of a week long camping trip. It was the perfect location to go to the brewery district for a couple of hours in the evening (10-15 minutes away). That being said, it felt like you were far from an urban city. The "hard times loop" sits on a hill but the sites are well graded and leveled. The only downfall is they are filled with large gravel which can be uncomfortable if you don't have a thick sleeping pad. The spacing between sites and amount of trees/scrubs is perfect. Bathrooms are clean and well maintained. Staff were friendly. Wish we would have had more time to explore the park!
