3 Reviews of Pisgah National Forest Davidson River Campground
Quiet campground in Pisgah (in December)

We used this as an overnight stay on our way from SC to MI. We initially planned to disperse camp nearby, but due to the cold weather, we decided to get a site with electric instead.  Not all loops are open this time of year, but there was no issue getting a site - even at 10PM. The bathrooms are clean and the showers are hot (no adjustment possible on temperature). There are many hiking trails in the area and it's beautiful even during December when there are no leaves on the trees.  The gatehouse says there is wi-fi in the parking lot, but we did not test it out.  We had 2 bars of ATT coverage.  I wish we had more time to explore in this area -  we'll be back.

Watch out for beauty and the bears!

What a beautiful site with plenty of elbow room between you and your neighbor. I wish we could have stayed longer. The staff was super helpful and nice. We enjoyed the peacefulness and the area in general. The only thing that was not on our side was nature! It rained the whole time! However we will be back to properly check this block because it was a beautiful area.

I rated a 4 star because the dump site is very tight, and lacking. That was the only thing on this campground I feel needed some work.

Great area!

Great location, large sites

We are beginner campers and had a great experience here for a long weekend camping trip.  We had a large double site with 2 tent pads and enough room for our friend's RV.  The campground is right on the Davidson River with a number of hiking & biking trail heads and plenty of spots to get into the river for tubing, fishing and swimming either within or just outside of the camp grounds.  The sites are spread out just enough to give you some privacy but close to make a quick trip to your neighbor in case you forgot something or need some help. :) There are clean bathrooms w/showers and helpful hosts on each loop. During our visit, our hosts spent the good part of one morning chasing a bear away due to someone leaving trash on their site.  It's also within 1/2 hour drive to a number of water falls and hiking trails of all levels (but mostly easy - moderate) in the Pisgah National Forest + plenty more if you drive further.  I would definitely come back here but I heard from the hosts on our loop that it books up quickly.  We got lucky booking at the last minute.
