Site accommodates both horse, drive in and walk-in camping. There’s a privy and water on site. Campsites have fire rings and picnic tables. There is a trail that loops back to the site for easy hiking access.
For a free campsite this was very well maintained. There’s a privy near the campsites and a creek the runs nearby. All sites have fire rings and lamp post along with picnic tables. Tent pads are also located at each site with room for a vehicle or small camper. Be aware that one of the entrances is blocked off due to a mud slide so make sure to check ahead for directions and updates on road closures.
This is a well maintained campground. Showers and bathrooms onsite. Water is available throughout the camp ground. While camping here there’s a creek that runs along the campground and many trails to explore. From here you can climb 4000ft to the summit of Mt Mitchell. It’s a great, challenging hike with many rewards along the way.
