Camping beside a river!

I loved camping at the edge of the river but know that it is loud and is a constant sound! The sites are right along the river and are a bit tight. Each site has a firepit, table, electric and water.

There are a lot of "permanent" resident RV's here but didn't see many people.

Proximity to Chimney Rock, Bat Cave and Lake Lure was great! Be sure to check out the Garden Bridge!!

Fishing was fun too!

Great Location! Ready to hike!

Our sites were clean and perfect for tents! The bathrooms seemed overwhelmed with use😩 but the rangers did a good job of keeping up with them!

Sites are kinda close but we felt very comfy with our two sites. Might have been able to get 2 tents on one site but 2 cars might have been tight.

Camp store had wood and supplies and welcome center has great wifi!!!

So beautiful...and right on the lake!!!

My campsite was perfect! I loved that the sites are nicely spaced so you are not right on top of each other! Bathrooms were close and very clean.

Welcome center sells wood and general supplies.

Peaceful and amazing place to cast a line and chill while the sun sets!!!

Sites on the Lake, clean and easy access

I rented my site online and was pleased by the low price for a campsite on a lake. The road in is a little rough but not too crazy. There is not an office or anything once you arrive (so no last minute supplies) but there is a paystation if you show up and want to camp. The camp host puts out signs of when the sites are rented so that you can find an empty site for a night.

Bathrooms were clean and well lite. There is a trail that takes you around the lake edge, easy walking. Not a lots if fishing right from the edge by the campsites due to tall grasses but there is a great fishing area with docks in a short drive or 20 min walk.

Was on site 18…we had 2 tents and 2 cars and plenty of room.
