Like the title, great water access to Falls Lake from both the campsites and a separate boat launch. Most of the RV sites were back-in with water and power, no sewage hook-ups, just a dump station upon your exit. Fire pit and picnic table at each site. Additionally, there's a small swim area boomed off with a little beach, great to just sit and hang out by the waterfront. Lots of tall, norrow trees for hammock set-ups. Also, driving distance to Beaver biking trails.
Only drawback was pretty dingy showers, and they were alighty narrow so I felt a little claustrophobic, especially while trying not to touch any of the sides. Toilet stalls were okay. Sinks were also dirty. Other than that, I would definitely come back for the waterfront access alone.
This place is right on the water with great views. We were passing through and only stayed one night. We had a Late check in and there was no person in duty. The confirmation email stated that we would receive a campsite assignment upon arrival and expected an envelop left for us w/ our site number. However, we received no direction as we arrived after 8pm and actually had to drive by the camp host who told us we could stay at one of two sites that would fit our trailer. Aside from this slight checkin issue, the campsite was good. No washer, but shower facilities available for tokens (50cents for 2 mins). Mostly tent spots, limited RV/pull thru sites. Great views of the bay though!
Wow, this is an amazing place to be. Right next to Powhatan Lake, but most of all, a mountain biker's dream! Hikers too, but really, all trails allow for bikers-single track riding. The trail system goes into an experimental forest area (whatever that means). Ensure to print out a map before hand, I can't begin to start to explain how many small loops, links, connector trails there are.
Campground itself is just 10-15 mins away from downtown Asheville, filled with great breweries and eats. It's also about 45 mins North from Brevard and Dupont State Park, another mountain biking hit. DuPont was also unbelievably amazing for waterfalls and swimming holes. We actually hiked to 3 waterfalls in DuPont, swimming and sliding down flat rocks at Hooker Falls and High Falls. Amazing experience that everyone should have on their bucket list.
This campground is right by the water, inlet of the Cape Fear River. It's about a 5 min drive to Carolina Beach. The area is intertwined with a few short 1-2 mile trails. There's a small marina and it's very popular during the weekend for boaters. Kayaking is also available. One of the trails has a small beach access, great area to take your dog or fish. Swimming is not allowed.
There's a Food Lion grocery store nearby. Amazing place called Wake N Bake donuts. Also, if you enjoy beer, Good Hops Brewery, who also has a disc gold course in the backyard. Kure Beach also has a good size course.
Amazing views, what do you expect, it's Tahoe! Campsite is only accessible via boat or hike in from the road. Hike down wasn't bad at all, you can take a paved service road down, about 1.5 miles. Easy access to nearby hiking trails, Vikingsholm mansion, and Eagle Falls. The hike in/boat access limits the number of people, so the site isn't too crowded. Highly recommended with such beautiful views of the lake!
Wow, stayed on this place en route up the East Coast and I was amazed! The bathrooms and cabins must have been new, or at least just renovated. The bathroom was almost like showering at a spa! Stainless steel, wood paneling, very clean. The cabins included ac/heater, ceiling fan, nice bed padding, and plastic chairs/table. The site also included a picnic table and fire pit. Pet friendly as we stayed with our golden retriever with a great view of the river. This campsite is a must stay, especially for glampers and probably a good choice for those who love ac/heating!
Stayed here a couple of nights back in March, so coming out of winter much of the brush and vegetation was dead. However. Seems like it would've really nice during the fall and spring. This campground is right in the heart of a great mountain biking trail system, which we spent days riding. Also, because there were so few campers, we were able to let our dog off leash. Theres a nice open grass field in the middle of the grounds, great for a game of frisbee. Highly recommended, especially if you're a single track rider!
Good campground, we came over Memorial Day weekend and was surprised that it didn't feel too crowded or packed even though each site was reserved. Our camp site #54 was big enough for a large 8-man tent plus a pop up camper. No electrical hookups are provided at the tent sites and drinking water pipped near the bathrooms only. The groundskeeper was great, gave us advice on where to take our dogs to at Moomaw Lake. They had ice and fire wood readily available. Bathrooms were a little run down, but not bad, two toilets and one single shower. This site is also heavily populated with cicada bugs, so you might take a few home with you! They look big and sound scary, but harmless.
The campsite's proximity to Moomaw Lake, river, and dam make it an ideal spot to stay for fishing and boating, highly recommended! Also, the site has a small bike/hike trail that takes you down to the lake and links up with another trail system. It's not that well kept with old markings and high brush, I also couldn't locate a map so I didn't venture too far from the campground. Enjoy!
