Mt. Pisgah Camp Ground,Blue Ridge Pkwy. North Carolina. Four loops in this campground. Two loops for tents only while the other two loops offer equally spacious sites from Class A's to teardrop campers. Very clean campground and facilities. Well tended by staff. We tented for three days and three nights and were well rested by the end of our trip.... More

We loved Pisgah National Forest. We visited the Cradle of Forestry where we had a great hour long tour of the school and the grounds. Very cool and interesting. The highlight of Pisgah was Sliding Rock, which was beautiful and thrilling. Our kids loved it and went down multiple times. We went at 4:00 the last week of August, and... More

We found out that they filmed the Hunger Games movie here, so we wanted to check it out. It's worth the trip. I just love this area. The nature is some of the best in the world, as far as I am concerned.

We took our young teen grandchildren to hike and explore the area. They hiked to the top of Mt. Pisgah, had a picnic at the Pink Beds, explored the Visitors' Center, and went down Sliding Rock. A good time was had by all.

Very beautiful area. Looking Glass Falls is free, but there are a good many stairs to get down to it. You have to pay $2 per person to get into Sliding Rock. I love going to this area.

Planned a vacation near Asheville in order to hike through the forest and look for the waterfalls. This was an amazing, beautiful place to hike with so much to discover. The teens loved the waterfalls and sliding rock. Went on a weekday and it was not very crowded. We spent the entire day and with a combination of hiking and... More

You shouldnt travel through the West side of North Carolina without a visit through Pisgah National Forst. Beautiful Views, waterfalls and The Sliding Rock

I spent three days at Pisgah Forest with my teenage daughter and a couple of her friends. We stayed at the Mt. Pisgah Campgrounds. We had reserved a site since we knew we were getting in late. The only site left was a RV site on A loop. We were camping but it worked out well, Just be sure to... More
