Riverside primitive camping in Blue Ridge

Rough Ridge the mountain/trail is amazing. The nearby campground is a small primitive (extremely basic) site, no water, nice fire ring. FYI no reservations, but there are a few other primitive campgrounds nearby in case this is full. Make sure you have a bear canister and/or leave food in your car.

Yay: Absolutely beautiful site, we were lulled to sleep by the river!

Nay: No complaints.

Surprise: You absolutely need to hike the Tanawaha Trail and the Rough Ridge summit!! Ideally in fall :)
