This is our second stay at Moonshine Creek Campground and what keeps us coming back is the cleanliness, the beauty and the friendly staff. Moonshine Creek has a bath house that rivals a four star hotel. The beauty of the grounds ensures a peaceful and relaxing stay. And the staff from the owner to the working campers make you feel...

Campground was great. Modern updated restrooms, great location and nice sites although a bit cramped together in a small space. Poor parking for tent campers. Staff seemed stressed and was even rude on Saturday evening.

This campground is hands down, the nicest campground I have ever stayed in. This time was my 3rd stay. The bathrooms were clean and up to date before, but now the management has renovated them in a way I have never seen before at a campground. When I walked in for the first time, I swore I was at a...

We stayed the 1st week of May 2015 and cannot wait to go back! This campground is in a beautiful natural setting with the creek running throughout the whole campground. There are several elevations with campsites and tent sites scattered throughout the campground. A lot of the sites were on the creek. We stayed in 20C which was towards the... More

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

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
