Are you looking for a primitive tent camping experience? Come stay at this small campground located along the banks of Jennings Creek. Large walk-in tent sites are screened by native vegetation. In the early 1900’s, this area was the site of an iron forge. Iron ore was smelted and made into materials for the railroad operation that harvested timber in the area.
All tent spaces are open with folks near you. Nice little creek but, cold. Each spot has a fire pit with plenty of wood nearby.
Good trails along the rolling hills and creeks. Very simple rustic site with very little facilities. Pros: very wooded and private large campsites, babbling creek, outhouses. Cons: none unless you prefer a more built up campground. FYI: no water so bring treatment methods. Not far from the Appalachian Trail, the TN/NC border, and highway 26. Asheville is about an hour away and is one of my favorite towns in the east.
