    Weaverville, North Carolina

    Welcome to Campfire Lodgings, a gem nestled near Asheville, NC. This spot is a favorite for its breathtaking overlook areas, where you can gaze at the mountains and the French Broad River for hours. The campground offers a mix of accommodations, including RV sites, tent sites, yurts, cabins, and even glamping options.

    The premium RV sites are paved and offer stunning long-range views, though they can get quite sunny in the afternoon. If you prefer some shade, the gravel deluxe sites are a great choice and just a short walk from the community overlook area, which is equipped with seating. The yurts are tucked away in the woods, providing excellent privacy. Tent sites are available, though some visitors have noted they are a bit further from the bathhouse.

    Speaking of amenities, Campfire Lodgings has you covered with electric and water hookups, showers, toilets, and even a sanitary dump. Pets are welcome, and there are no breed restrictions, which is a big plus for those traveling with larger dogs. The campground also has a market for any essentials you might need.

    The location is fantastic—just a 15-minute drive will get you into downtown Asheville or Montfort, and Weaverville is also nearby. For a great cup of coffee or a beer, head over to High Five Riverside Dr. If you have dogs, Wag Bar offers a nice off-leash area for them to play.

    One thing to note: the road up to the campground is steep, curvy, and narrow, so plan your arrival after 2 PM to avoid meeting another RV on the way up. This place is perfect for those seeking peace, quiet, and a natural feel. Enjoy your stay!

    Pisgah National Forest, North Carolina

    Mountain Stream RV Park is at about 1800′ elevation in the middle of the Pisgah National Forest, nestled in a narrow valley surrounded by mountains on all sides. Beautiful Buck Creek flows through this valley and along two sides of the campground. The Blue Ridge Parkway is only about 3 miles away, but it’s 5 miles by road.

    We are surrounded by gorgeous mountain scenery. You can take in many of the interesting attractions that are only a short drive away or you can just relax by the stream and listen to the cold clear water flowing over the rocky stream bed. And speaking of the stream, there’s trout in that thar’ water. All of our sites have full hook-ups – power (30 & 50 amp), water, sewer and cable TV.
