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.

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
