Large shaded campsites

I love this campground! The sites are spaced out, large and completely shaded. There are several bathhouses and some include large sinks to wash supplies. There is a boat ramp and parking space for trailers. We will definitely be back here!

Great Backcountry Camping

A short hike to several backcountry sites. Our original spot was Panther Gap Rockhouse. Unfortunately this site was wet! Everything was wet! There was a fire ring and tables available at this site. But we moved to Tub Springs which was amazing! Very windy but dry! Fireplace, fire pit, bear safe storage container and several tables were available. We will definitely we back to the Tub Springs site again! Note there was no water source available at either locations.

Easy Hike to Backcountry Camping site

Great spot for a night of camping. Spot is a few miles in from Jake’s Creek Trail head. There is a fire pit and a pulley system to hoist your items away from the wildlife. The only source of water is a few miles away. So you will have to pack your water supply for your stay.

Backcountry waterfront camping

The hike to #28 is not for the faint of heart! This spot was a gem compared to the other sites we passed. Tucked off the main trail are two camping spots with fire pits split by a stream. After hiking for several miles, the stream was a wonderful way to replenish our water supply and a nice added background noise to lull you to sleep. Site is equipped with a pulley system to hoist your items in the trees away from the wildlife.

Secluded in the Mountains

Paved spots with lots of shade. Bathrooms are clean. Bathhouse has an outside sink and a water bottle fountain to refill your bottles. Lots of hiking in the surrounding area. Each site has a food storage box.

Great location!

Beautifully located on Lake Jocassee! Camp sites paved, wooded and nicely spaced. Bathhouses are clean. The lake is gorgeous. Boat ramp and trailer parking. Kayak rentals available.

Lots of hiking trails

I was not a fan of this campsite. Bathrooms need a lot of TLC and the sites were too close together. However, there is a park near by and several hiking trails.

Not for the faint of heart!

To get to this campground you have to go up a steep narrow windy mountain road. The camp sites are distanced well and the entire campground is in the shade. There are a lot of hiking trails. The bathrooms could use some TLC.

True Relaxation!

If you want to escape it all, this campground is for you! There is no cell phone service. The campsite is wooded and the spaces are distanced well. The bathhouse could use some upgrading but it served its purpose.

Lake retreat!

Located on a peninsula, you have access to the lake from almost all campsites. Some sites are on a hill so the walk to the water can be challenging. Camp sites were wooded and well spaced out. Boat ramp and trailer parking onsite.

Great Riverfront Spot!

Beautiful spots along Little Wilbur Lake! The campsite has firewood to purchase and canoes to rent. The bathhouse is very clean and well maintained.

Spacious Riverside Camping

I just love this campground! It’s small, quaint and the owners are super nice. The riverfront spaces are amazing and just inches away from the Nolichucky River. If you love to fish or kayak this is a great location.

The bathhouses are super clean. Do check the output of the river because this campground will flood. That’s the only reason I give it a 4 star instead of 5.
