Pros and Cons

Went with our two dogs for two nights. Spaces are pretty close together and open, so you’ll see your neighbor.

Unfortunately, we had terrible neighbors our second night and made a quick exit the following morning as a result.

Otherwise, the bathhouse was clean, and the trails around the campground were very nice. The stand alone outhouses were very gross; spider webs, flies everywhere, and dark.

I don’t think I will return, but think it would be good for families and people who want ease over quiet.

Quiet and private

We stay here every year for a four day music festival up the road at Wilkes Community College. You are about 10 minutes from resteraunts and shopping, or you can enjoy fishing and boating and never leave the woods.

Great for family

We stayed 3 nights, and it was a great campground for our family. Clean restrooms, a small beach, playground, and quiet. We don't mountain bike but several of our friends do and they said they trails were great. Sites are a little close and open to each other but overall would visit again.

The mt bike trails are even better than you would imagine!!

Super mt bike trails that have been built and maintained by volunteers who really care and ride the trails often. Solid facilities to camp. 10 to 15 minutes drive by car to the wilkesboro with plants of food and amenities. Other biking nearby on greenway, black mountain and the trails at cub creek!!
