Pleasant campground, lots of room between sites. The water pressure was not satisfactory and we couldn’t take showers in our camper. The Internet isn’t high speed and we couldn’t get it to work unless no one was using it very early in the morning. If the water pressure were better, I would consider coming back, but it might be a deal breaker.
Love this family owned campground!! The sites weren't right on top of each other, but you can definitely see your neighbors with ease. The family that owns it lives on site. They have a pancake breakfast on the weekends, which was nice. They also have a store on site that has everything you didn't know you forgot!! Bathrooms were quite a walk from our site, so we drove to it when needed. The campground is pet friendly!! Dump station on site was convenient!
Just spent the weekend here and loved it! Great place for kids with jump pad, swingset, slides, climbing dome, pool, a creek to explore, hiking trails, and more! We planned to explore the area (Chimney Rock, Lake Lure) but ended up staying the entire time in the campground. Just a beautiful new place, very relaxing. We will definitely be back! Would be a wonderful place to plan a group trip due to the variety of accommodations (RV sites, treehouses, remodeled campers, pods, tent sites, etc.).
We had a terrible experience here. We rented one of the camping RV's and paid by check in advance. The campground was recommended on a travel group I belong to on facebook. We drove 4 hours and when we showed up and checked in, we were greeted kindly but it went downhill when we went to the RV. The RV was very old(maybe 20 years?) and smelled like mold/mildew. We opened the windows in an effort to air it out. My son and husband thought that it smelled like sewage, and the lights on the black tank indicated full. We went back to the office to inquire about the smell and the black tank. The lady working the desk said her husband would check the black tank after he finished supper and that it should smell like peppermint. I can assure you that it did not. My kids were already asking if they could sleep in the car at this point. The husband checked the tank and said it was empty but the indicator was broken. We were at a loss as to what to do, as we were sure if we stayed, we would have gotten sick. Two of us have asthma and 2 of us have allergies and I was afraid that if we stayed in it, we would be sick with bronchitis as that is usually what happens when I am exposed to mold. Also, given covid- I don't think most people would want this risk. The husband said that RV"has always smelled like that since we bought it." We remembered that their camping cabins looked newer online and thought that may be a better option so we asked if we could switch to one of them(they are less expensive and we were fine with that). Unfortunately, since it was Labor Day weekend, they were all booked as well as every campsite. They refused to give us a refund or offer any other options. We had no idea where we would go as it was 6:00 at night and everywhere seemed to be booked for Labor Day weekend. We called a few campgrounds with no luck and ended up eating dinner in town and driving to Asheville to stay at a hotel and returning home the next day. This was so disappointing as we had spent most of the day before we left prepping food, packing, etc. I would never return or recommend this place due to how they handled our situation, with no concern at all and keeping our money with no solution offered. I can only guess that if you bring your own tent or RV, the rest of the campground is acceptable since the reviews overall are good. But definitely DO NOT rent the RV's- unless you can tolerate high levels of mold and want to pay$100 a night for a worn out, smelly RV.
We took our camper to Emberglow for its maiden voyage. We were straight from the Camping World in Hendersonville. We picked the best place for our first trip. Emberglow is amazing! The pool is the best I’ve been to at any hotel. It isn’t a large campground so the pool wasn’t busy. The bathhouses were amazing with granite countertops, tile floor and walls, along with a beautiful mural. We have since realized that is not the norm in other campgrounds. We were a little spoiled since this was our first impression of camping. Our son enjoyed the jump pad and playing in the creek. There was a volleyball court that we didn’t get to enjoy and they were in the midst of building a playground. A nice dog park was on site also. We can’t wait to return! It was only a 10 minute drive to Lake Lure & Chimney Rock for eating out and exploring.
This was our second trip to Yogi Golden Valley but the first trip with our new camper. We had a wonderful weekend! My family rented a cabin on the creek. Golf carts are a must to get around since the campground is so big! The kids enjoyed the water park, putt putt, gem mining, fishing, crafts and tie dying shirts. There were several activities we didn’t get a chance to do this trip (kayak, laser tag and the playground). We will definitely be back! It’s within an hour drive for us and you can’t beat it!
Very clean,natural, beautiful trees , and a nice location. It is run by a very nice family. We were close to amazing waterfalls and hikes in DuPont forest. Short drive to Brevard with great places to eat. The sites are staggered down the hillside and gives you a sense of privacy. The bathrooms were very clean.
We had a absolutely wonderful time in our RV at Emberglow. The pool is resort quality, and there’s a bounce pillow and a dog park as well. We had so much fun.
We were just there last month and we are coming back this month with members of our church who plan to rent three houses.
My husband and I stayed at the Happy Tales Campsite on our 22nd wedding anniversary and we had a great time. The location is very private, we were on our own the whole time. The setting is rustic, right next to an animal sanctuary. We had to bring water from a spigot nearby, but the host said they could do it for us if we wanted.
The tent is spacious and turned out to be the best feature when it started raining in the evening. We simply moved our camp chairs inside and listened to the rain and cicadas. Then later that night the sky cleared up and the stars were so beautiful, we could see the Milky Way.
The tent had everything we needed - a private toilet, a trash can, a water canister, a fire pit, chairs, a table, and a food storage box. One thing I would recommend is to bring a lamp, and a grill or a grilling grate, in case you want to cook.
The host was great, she was in touch with us prior to our arrival, met us at the gate and showed us the property.
This place is great for couples, but also for parents with younger children, who want to spend the night under the stars, but still in a comfort of a bed.
The road to the site is unpaved and probably requires a 4x4 vehicle to get there.
