We had the best time at Buck Hill Campground! I got the idea to go camping near Linville for Memorial Day weekend and most places with online reservations were already booked up (oops). SO HAPPY I called this place! The owner Chris and his family were so kind and helpful, and the campground was super peaceful and lovely. Grassy shady spots by the lake to pick out a place to pitch a tent with fire rings, water spigots and picnic tables spread down the treeline. Chris and the kids would ride by on golf carts and you can purchase firewood from them and have it delivered to the campsite.
We have young inexperienced campers, and this place was perfect. They could run around in the field, go play at the playground, watch the baby geese, and visit the arcade while I got dinner ready, so that was awesome. Plus there are rivers and trails there too, although we took the short drive to Linville Falls to go hiking. Close to Linville Falls & Caverns. There was no cell service for us (AT&T) but the campground had free wifi. Bathrooms nearby were clean and big. Very quiet at night, all the other campers were super nice. People were fishing in the lake and river, and the guys next to us went out fishing somewhere all day every day. GORGEOUS weather, beautiful views of the mountains, nice and cool throughout the day and not too cold at night (end of May).
We look forward to going back!
