We stayed at Moonshine Creek Campground in May 2013. We were looking for something scenic and close to both the Smokies and Asheville and this certainly fit the bill. A little difficult to find but once we got there….WOW….Moonshine Creek Campground is just absolutely breathtaking! The rushing creek runs through the campground and you can hear it day and night....

My family has been coming here for years and will continue to do so for years to come. The hardworking owners have made so many upgrades that it's now like staying in a 5 star resort. The restrooms have been beautifully upgraded and are officially nicer than the showers in our own home. The sites are clean and spacious. If... More

This is the only place we stay now when we come to the mountains! Have been coming for several years and every year it gets better and better. Jim the owner is always improving things and you can tell the owners take a lot of pride in making the campground a beautiful place. It is so relaxing and peaceful and... More

Camping at this campground was a lifetime experience. It was in the mountain and our campsite was 2 feet away from a roaring creak which was awesome. The free wifi was horrible signal even when you were only a few feet away. The bathrooms and showers need a complete remodeling and not just an update. The staff was wonderful. It... More

Thank you for your review of Moonshine Creek Campground. We agreed that the Bathhouse needed updating and we are happy to report that the complete renovation of the bathhouse as well as all the tenters bathrooms will be ready for the 2015 season!

I had heard about Moon Shine Creek from friends and anticipated a great camping experience and was not disappointed. From being taken to my site and having Jim the owner? give spot on instructions putting me in the space, or "docking" my 40ft Phaeton, to having friendly and courteous people make me feel welcome, I was very impressed. They even... More

I stayed at the Moonshine Creek Campground with my now fiancé (he proposed while we were there) and would 100% recommend staying here. You can choose whether to bring your own camper, or stay in one of their cabins. We stayed in a small cabin next to the creek, and had the most relaxing time. The people managing the campground...

Great campground tucked away in the mountains. We had 50 amp service for our 40 foot motor home. Was a little tight getting in there but it was worth it. Our site was on the creek which the sound was very relaxing. Fire ring and picnic table on each site. Owners, Jim and Dana, are very nice people! Met 2... More

We stayed at this campground for a week and it was beyond wonderful. The fast moving creek runs through the entire campground and the sound is so relaxing it is ridiculous. We had a campsite that was right in front of the creek which gave us that wonderful sound as well as a great setting for our evening fire. We... More
