Excellent location, views, & amenities for tent campers

We stayed at Tent Site #3 in late May and early June. We have stayed at the campground twice before. We love coming back here because of the great amenities, location, and access to activities. 

  1. The amenities are great for the kind of tent camping we like to do: electric & water at each site, central bath house with individual bath suites that are cleaned regularly, and a dish washing station. 

  2. The location is excellent - you can get to downtown Asheville in 10 minutes! 

  3. The views are amazing - so many mountains and the French Broad River!

Our pup loved the trails at the campground. I would recommend you not picking tent site #3 (the picnic table was not level) or #4 because they are right across from each other and there isn't a lot of privacy between the two. I would definitely pick tent site #2 if you want to be closer to the bath house or #5 if you want to be farthest away from the other sites.

  • Sitting on the picnic table & cooking dinner at the fire ring
  • You pull your car right up to the site (except for site #2). Water and electricity available here too.
  • Making breakfast on picnic table. Tent site #4's picnic table was not level, but all of the other tent sites seemed to have the picnic table level on the ground.
  • The tent pad was small gravel/sand and framed by wood planks. It was a little bit higher than the "living area" picnic table and fire ring. Our dog really enjoyed being on raised ground.
  • A photo of spacious tent pad (we have a two person tent)
  • Another photo of "living area". We put our radio on the stump and it was the perfect spot.
  • A picture of the common area near the bath house. Too bad we didn't get any photos of the amazing views we are looking at here (to the left). There are lots of chairs, picnic tables, and rocks to sit on while you gaze at the mountains and the French Broad River.
