Such an amazing park! We brought an inner-tube (but it's easy and cheap to rent one) and had a blast tubing down the Davidson River! Then we somehow managed to top that fun by sliding down the sliding rock for hours on end. We got there before 6:00PM on a Friday and the weather was perfect and the crowds were... More

The forest, mountains, and trail are beautiful. In regards to the Mount Pisgah Campground: Great campground on the Blue Ridge! Be sure to pick a site away from the bathrooms/showers/water pump station. Some of the access paths to the bathrooms/showers go through camp sites. The campground itself is very beautiful and close to several trails, such as the Mount Pisgah... More

So much to do in this area; Coon Tree Picnic Area, Looking Glass Falls, The Cradle of Forestry, and Sliding Rock. There are lovely picnic tables beside a stream, along the road to break for lunch. It is a beautiful drive. Love this area!

Beautiful - but really crowded. The teens loved it anyway - even with the water being freezing! Suggest good water shoes for those who want to avoid slippery rocks. No eating in this area allowed.

Visited Triple Falls and Hooker Falls, beautiful natural areas where parts of the Hunger Games were filmed. Nice hike to Triple Falls, steep incline but not too far.

This is a beautiful park, well maintained and with lifeguards at the Sliding Rock. If you need directions to locations within the park, be sure that you do not rely on your phone or GPS, as there is no internet access at all within the park. The signage is great, but you might need a paper map or already have... More

Sliding Rock is totally worth the shock you'll get when the water hits you! We went early one morning - around 9:30 - before the lifeguards are on duty. There were maybe 7 other people there and it was a blast. Our kids (ages 10 and 12) thought it was awesome. A totally unique experience to tell their friends about.... More

Rather you like hiking, rock climbing, swimming, biking or just sightseeing there is something here for you. You can even learn about the history and the different services of the forest service. My family and I make many trips out to Pisgah throughout the year.
