Located in a dense pine canopy, within hiking distance of Linville Gorge and along the famous Blue Ridge Parkway, Linville Falls Campground is an ideal location for your next family camping excursion.
The Linville Falls area is a hiker's paradise, and the campground provides easy access to several trails that allow visitors to experience the stunning scenery and abundant wildlife.
Once at the gorge, visitors can hike more challenging trails down to the river, where fishing for trout is a popular pastime.
Linville Falls is another must-see, carrying water from the river over several layers of falls, ending in a spectacular 45-foot waterfall pouring into the sparkling riverbed below.
Campers are also likely to spot wildlife like bears, grouse, turkeys, owls or hawks during their stay.
The campground offers comfortable tent or RV camping, with the convenience of flush toilets and drinking water. Grills and picnic areas at each site create a perfect environment for family barbecues or late-night marshmallow roasting. In addition to the 40 sites available for advanced reservation, 24 campsites are available on a first come, first-serve basis.
Linville Gorge is a vast designated Wilderness area that sits on 11,786 acres of rolling hills and thick forest. The gorge surrounds the Linville River, which is located some 1,400 feet below the ridge, creating a stunning canyon that has earned the nickname, "The Grand Canyon of North Carolina."
The Blue Ridge Parkway is a scenic byway with plenty of natural attractions and recreational opportunities for visitors. Aside from natural features, the parkway is also a cross-section of Appalachian mountain history. Stretching almost 500 miles along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains through North Carolina and Virginia, it encompasses some of the oldest historical sites of both pre-historic and early European settlements.
The surrounding forest offers hemlock, white pine, oaks, hickory and birch trees, along with a colorful assortment of wildflowers in the spring and an epic array of orange and red shades of leaves in the autumn.
Linville Caverns, a privately maintained cave just south of Linville Falls, offers guided tours year-round.
ADA Access: N
Close to Blue ridge parkway and trails. Not enough trees for hammocks.
Remote, quiet family friendly campground. It is a basic campground with both tent sites and hook-ups. We enjoy tent camping here on the large field where fireflies light up the night sky! There are sites that are close to water so you can fall asleep listening to the gurgle of the creek - and sites near the woods. The bathhouse includes toilets and sinks with a hand dryer. You can drive to the falls or drive to the visitor center and hike to the falls - a great campground!
This is a nice little privately owned campground. There are cabins, RV spots and tent sites all with access to newly renovated restrooms and coin operated laundry. Should you have an issue, the owners live on site and are available and happy to help. Sites offer a nice amount of shade for hot summer days and the facility is located close to a number of beautiful western Carolina gems.
Absolutely stunning. Well marked trail's. Never a dull moment. The falls were breath taking. I definitely will make an effort to return to venture further. No handicap access.
