I don't have much good to say about this campground. I chose it as they accepted Passport America and we wanted to stay in this area for about 3 days to sightsee. First off, the road to the campground is a narrow twisting road, no shoulder to speak of and also some low hanging branches. Secondly, this is an old... More

When we arrived to check-in the price we were quoted over the phone was different than the price she tried to charge us. We get to the cabin there is no lock for the door and no linens. Deb's daughter returned with those items later. Then Jerry arrived and smartly told us we could not park our car at the... More

We went during the off-season, and perhaps that is why we had such a poor experience. We called ahead of time and made reservations with Debbie (Lil Deb), asking specifically if everything was in working order as far as bathhouses, etc. We were told that they were. Upon reaching the campground we found no one at the office. After waiting... More

Oh my gosh! Where do I start!! It was WONDERFUL! We stayed in one of the cabins at the top of the mountain and the view of Mt. Mitchell was unobstructed and awsome! The little cabin had everything we needed on a sort of miniature scale. Just precious!! My grandchildren loved it. The haunted trail ride was an event to... More

This little family owned campground is perfect for those with kids and want something laid back and quiet. We stayed in of the couples cabins and had an awesome view of Mt. Mitchell!! The staff is very accommodating, providing nice little activities to keep the kids busy. There is a field that has millions of fireflies and they kids had... More

We stayed at Sky Island Retreat for the month of April 2013 in the Sportsman cabin and will have 'forever memories' to rave about. We're a family of 5, with hubby and I and our three children, ages 10, 9 and 7. The cabin adjacent to ours had a couple of young guys (early twenties?) staying and all was okay... More

The worker who checked us in was very courteous, and the view from our cabin was quite pretty. I'm sorry to say, the positives end there. Price: We paid $150 to stay in a small cabin for a single night in early November. Being off-season, we were very surprised to pay so much. Access: Getting up top to the cabin,... More
