Wonderful campground in a great location. It is close enough to Erwin (5 minutes) for a quick trip into town for a meal or for supplies, but, deep enough in the forest to feel like a remote camp in the woods. The campsites are very clean, roomy and quiet. The swimming hole is nice, but, very cold and only good... More

Love this campground! We have camped here for over 20 years and it's still our favorite getaway. There is plenty of privacy in each spot and several nice hiking trails. In summer months the concrete pool is a great place to cool off for kids. While the campground only has electricity, there is a water hookup on each of the... More

Good hike up to rock creek falls. Another trail up to unaka mountain overlook. The swimming hole is good size but extremely cold since its right off the mountain spring. Good play areas for kids. Decent creek that runs beside the whole park. Never camped there but great for a days visit.

Hiked the Rock Creek Falls Trail on April 2, 2014. The trail was lovely, with lots of small falls before the final big falls at the top. The trail surface is good, but there are four big stream crossings. The streams were easy enough to cross with a couple of poles / long walking sticks. The stream is not deep,... More

There was a water faucet just below our site but no way to connect a hose to fill water tank. the sites are some of the best i have ever stayed in with tons of space between... More

I'm looking to move to this area. I'm standing in my sight right now eating breakfast and although it rained last night and is still sprinkling now, this easily accessible, affordable campground nestled in the side of the Appalachian mountains wonderfully captures everything so sweet and simple to this area of the country! Sturdy tables and fire rings, hot showers,... More
