Beautiful campground! Right by the river, which makes for wonderful sleeping at night. There is a swimming hole and a fishing hole, both well-maintained. Campground hosts were very nice. Lots of trees for some cool coverage from the sun. About a 30 minute drive from Mount Mitchell, and it's a beautiful drive on the parkway. Knocked a star because the campground hosts got a little too excited cleaning out campsites and scooped up all of our firewood and cleaned out the fire pit, even when we had already paid for our spot for Sunday night and had our tent up. It's tough to get a spot as first come first serve on the weekends, so be aware. Bathrooms and showers are kinda gross, but it is what it is and that wasn't a huge deal for us. If you like looking for wildflowers, soooo many pretty ones blooming in early May. Check the photos for all the ones we found on the campground!
