Came through here with the family. The car ride is very nice. You can make stops on the side of the road and enjoy the scenery. It is nice and peaceful out here.

Tented at Mt. Pisgah Campground for 5 nights. Found the quiet and coolness of being in the clouds a nice change from the muggy Florida weather. Each site has bear storage which was convenient.

My son and I visited Pisgah National Forest, Looking Glass Waterfalls & the Trout Hatchery this Mother's Day 2015 weekend. The waterfalls were breathtaking, the water was cold but the experience was priceless.

The forest is very green. We camped at Davidson river campground. The waterfalls and sliding rock are very close to the campground. Sliding rock is so much fun.
