We were excited for our first camping trip to Devils Backbone but have to admit that we were REALLY disappointed when we pulled up. The campground backs up to a wood heap with large grey disposal containers (not pretty) and the sites were total lackluster. But .. the biggest issue is that the park was clearly developed by someone who has never stepped foot in an rv! In an effort to save money they only installed electrical/water pedestals on every other site which means that you are tether in one direction (40 feet) to a sewage outlet and another direction ((30 feet) to electric. Fortunately, a camping neighbor let us borrow additional sewage tubing so we could have hookups. Because You are so tightly tethered you can’t line up to the picnic tables. Everyone we have talked to (including locals at wineries/breweries/cideries) have told us they repeatedly hear complaints about the lack of planning at the rv sites. We love Devils Backbone but won’t come back here to camp until this issue is fixed. By the way — if you do chose to visit ONLY accept an even numbered site!
Lots of sites, brand new warm and clean bath house. Sites available with and without hookups. You get a 10% discount on food and merch at the brewery…and their beer is amazing! There was only a few rvs camped when we were there. Nice place! A bit muddy because of new construction but will be great when it warms up and the new grass comes in.
An inexpensive place to sleep within walking distance to restaurant and brewery. New very nice and clean bathhouse. But I can't see how it can handle the amount of campsites. About 25 tent sites, maybe another 22 no hookup RV sites, 24 full hook up. Mens room has 2 toilets 3 sinks and 2 showers. Not a problem on a weekday in November. Water saver in the shower, water warm enough but never had to turn on the cold. No bench or chair to dry feet and put on sox and shoes. No wifi at site. AT&T cell service. Tent sites are close together, maybe 25 feet from table to table with little to no privacy between them. Many of the sites are illuminated by the LED floods from the bathhouse. Found myself hiding my eyes in the shadow of the trees. No trash cans. Hammock campers be aware. Most sites are so small with so few trees you may have trouble finding 2 trees within your own site. So if you want to eat, drink, camp and not have to drive, this will work. Just don't plan on getting up in the middle of the night and pee in the woods because you will probably pee on your neighbor's tent.
This campground is really new but is well run. The sites are new, clean and fairly level. The power posts are shared between two campers so that took a few folks by surprise. You do have to think about which way you want to pull in in order to accommodate full hook up needs. The brewery is an easy walk and the food and brew are good. The AT is near so hiking is abundant. One of the negatives is that it is not clear where the campground is in relation to the brewery. When you do locate the entrance, it has a tall stone entry that is barely wide enough for big rigs. Most folks had to pull both mirrors in to get through. We loved it there and met some really neat folks. Very peaceful.
walking distance to devils backbone brewery. clean bathrooms. close distance to hiking trails and other breweries and cideries. close to humback rock, spy rock, crabtreefalls and many more trails to explore
They are still working out the kinks but this is going to be the go-to spot!
It’s hosted by Devils Backbone Brewing Company, beautiful views, has an on site food service and brewery. Pets welcome and camping can be made through site. Good for probably new campers or those looking to camp but have a more relaxed trip.
