Winding Stair Campground

1 Review


Winding Stair Campground sits at an elevation of 3,880 feet, next to the headwaters of the Nantahala River and is surrounded by national forest and undeveloped private land trusts. The stunning mountain views in a remote tucked-away setting makes our farm a perfect getaway!

Just a 15-minute scenic drive from Franklin in North Carolina, easily accessible off Hwy 64, our campground offers a chance to enjoy nature without being far away from the amenities of a small but well-equipped town.

A few features about our property:

- Working farm: Campers are welcome to meet our Icelandic sheep and take a self-guided tour of our farm, along designated pathways.

- Security: The campground and farm are fenced in on three sides with the river being the fourth boundary. Personal code to the entrance gate will be given at check in.

- Bath House: The restored bathhouse is split into boys’ and girls’ sides. Each side has 2 private showers, 4 flushing toilets, sinks, hot water, and gas heat.

- Community Pavilion: The Pavilion is a large 40x30 ft. open sided pavilion overlooking the Nantahala River. It has an ample fireplace, running water sink, counter space, couches, and table with benches.

- Pack Room: A cozy place to get local information, view maps, and grab some local groceries. (Grocery availability is listed in the extras section.) Also available to all campers are washing sinks with hot water.

- Communication: Or rather, lack thereof! There's no cell service on the property so it's a great time to get away from it all. There is limited Wi-Fi available near the Pack Room and an emergency landline available.

- Charging: Traveling in an electric vehicle? Recharge for free at our dedicated EV 50amp outlet when you stay at any of our sites. First come, first served.
