Decided to stay at this campground after reading the other reviews and it did not disappoint. We stayed in site 50 in the Lakeside Loop - it had more privacy than a lot of the other sites, and was right next to a trail leading down to the Homestead trail that goes around the lake. The facilities included single person bathrooms and showers and were very clean! We only briefly spoke with the people working the entrance station, but they were friendly and helpful. They do take credit cards for firewood purchases, which was super helpful.
Even though the campground seemed mostly full while we were there, we only ever heard the people at the campsites closest to us, and even then only occasionally.
We used this campground as a base camp for checking out the trails within walking distance of our campsite, as well as few others on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Very close to Asheville if you need to go into town for anything, but felt very secluded and away from the city. We did not have any Verizon cell service while at the campground.
