My boyfriend and I stayed three nights in one of the three couples cabins. We had the last cabin of the three which had a beautiful view of the mountains from the front porch or sitting on the couch in the living room. The cabin had a nice kitchen and full bathroom with everything we needed. There was air conditioning... More

We stayed here last summer for a week in one of the primitive cabins. We absolutely loved our stay and our little cabin was just perfect for us! The staff was very friendly and we were able to do a lot of sightseeing easily because of it's convenient location. This was a first camping experience for 2 of my children... More

Their website can be a little deceiving, we thought it was going to be more space between the cabins and tent sites. It ended up being a great place to stay. Everyone was friendly, clean, plenty of things to do, and close to a lot of things without the high prices. Loved that the cabins came with an outlet and... More

Accommodations are top value at any price point. Most of the vacationers I met had been back several times. I wouldn't think of staying anyplace else when I was in the Asheville area. Bill Johnson Lakeland, Fl.

Enjoyment is to take pleasure or satisfaction in something and that is beyond all doubt what you will experience at Sky Island Retreat & Camp Grounds. It is a beautiful happy place to relax and enjoy yourself with friends and family. The staff are incredibly hospitable and cordial to the guest. Sweet beyond words and extraordinary in their desire to... More

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
