Secluded mountain getaway in the Highlands

Wonderful little campground that is well suited for tent camping, or if you have a small trailer like us - a Casita.  Large campers and RVs will not fit.  No hook ups, but we filled our water tank and used our solar panels for power.   Camp hosts were fantastic, campsite was perfect with just a short walk to a creek.  Bathrooms and showers were clean.  It was quiet and perfect to unwind and relax.  Just 4 miles from downtown Highlands if you want to grab a bite to eat our shop.  Plus there are so many great hikes and waterfalls in the area.  Highly recommend.

Good place to camp if you want to hike Providence Canyon

We camped here for 2 nights in early March, so that we could hike Providence Canyon.  Campground and bathhouse are clean, but not much privacy.   We were facing two of our neighbors.   There is not a lot to do in the area except for Providence Canyon, and of course, if you have a boat, the lake at Florence Marina.  Poor cell service, but they do have full hook-ups.   Campground was quiet.

Nice place to getaway from it all

We really enjoyed camping at Cloudland Canyon.  We took our first trip in our new Casita camper there in August.  But, prior to that we had scouted out the campground back in March.  Book on the west rim, as there is more privacy and space between campsites.  Clean facilities and well kept state park overall.  Lots to seek in the park if you like hiking; beautiful views of the canyon and waterfalls.  Lulu Land Trust is a short drive from the campground, which  has a breathtaking waterfall (reservation needed).   We will be returning.

Fabulous! We already rebooked for next year!

We stayed at Bear Den at the end  of October 2020 to enjoy the autumn colors in Western NC.   I loved being able to camp in our little Casita in Pisgah National Forest right off the Blue Ridge Parkway.  We were able to take advantage of hiking at Linville Falls/Gorge, Grandfather Mountain and Hawksbill Mountain.  Plenty of other activities around if hiking is not your thing.   Some of the sites are a bit close due to it being a private campground.  However, we scouted out the best sites for us and are rebooked in a much more private site for 2021.   Wi-fi is only available up near the visitors center.  Well maintained campground with clean facilities.  Water, electric and sewer hook up available.

Oasis in the middle of frenetic Destin

We camped at Henderson Beach State Park the last week of 2020.  It was absolutely beautiful with well kept grounds and clean facilities.  The beach was amazing and our site was so private.  We were on D loop, and I would recommend loop A or B as first choice.   However, all sites are very private and level.   Only 2 bars on cell service and wi-fi is only available at visitor center and bathhouse.  Would definitely stay here again.
