This place is truly a gem. I loved everything about it. My boyfriend and I are not new to camping, but we've never stayed anywhere quite like this. The stars at night, if you can find a clearing with no trees overhead are fan-freaking-tastic. We stared and stared at them for hours. Never having been anywhere with zero light pollution,... More

We wanted to stay at mile high because it was on top of a mountain and on the way to asheville.. We're not huge campers but have enjoyed the less primitive camps and hikes. The views from this campsite were beyond belief in the morning.. we arrived at dusk and a cloud came in so fog and darkness was everywhere...... More

The caretakers are wonderfully nice. The campsites are large and clean. Huge elk wander all through the campground. Most sites either have a beautiful sunrise or sunset view. Campground is on a ridge.

The campground was nice with good views. We went in August and our campsite in the primitive area was like a wind tunnel. It was hard to even start our fire with the wind. Bring lots of layers. View from site was amazing though. I think they need to spend some money and update or build a new bathroom/shower house.... More

Been there three times this summer. June/July and last weekend (August). Great experience, been lucky on the rain and have seen ELK everytime! They even will bring the firewood you purchase to your site....which is convenient at the least! Attented 2 of the Thursday night potluck's with my 2 boys and they couldn't have been more nice! My dog was... More

This is by far the best campground we've ever stayed at. I reviewed this campground a few years ago after our first stay and knocked them for the bathrooms and cabins. I will still say that the cabins need to be torn down (they are in HORRIBLE condition and full of mice) but the bathrooms have undergone a renovation. There... More

The views are great! For the 15 hours we could bear the cabin, I even saw elk!! On arrival, not too bad, we sprayed the cabin down with some bug spray and noticed some mice droppings here and there, but figured we where here to ruff it. Well... night falls and asleep on plywood we go (no cushions here, just... More

Stayed in late June 2013 for 3 nights. WE LOVED IT !!!!!! Nice, quiet, secluded. Amazing view from most campsites. Perfect for tent camping. Amazing hosts. Hot showers. Up in the mountains, so gets chilly at night.

Mile High Campground is a fabulous primitive campground. I love this place for tent camping, as you do not feel to be surrounded by RV's. Although, they do have some spacious RV sites available. It is such a tranquil place with abundant wildlife. The bathhouse, although rustic, was always clean and hot water available every time we showered. Most of... More

First let me say that the view cannot be beat! If you are tent or RV camping be sure to get one of the many views overlooking Cherokee. The sunset, the valley, the mountains........beautiful. The atmosphere was very peaceful and friendly people were everywhere. Now for the bad part: We are normally tent campers, but for a mere $10 you... More
