Halloween is awesome here, plan on a solid week here to see things in the area. Gem mines, waterfalls, brewery and shopping in nearby Asheville. There is plenty to do year round, make sure to buy a family pass for games etc. they really cater to family oriented fun. The tent sights high up require a 4x4 and we watched the creek flood and wash a bunch of the lower sights out. Brings warm clothes as we encountered frosty evenings and rainy days- you are in the foothills! Tent sights on bottom of hill can be raging rivers from the streams over flow. Cabins look amazing and there are always activities. Emerald village is great and there is a trout farm you can visit and catch dinner guaranteed!
