The owners of this campground are the nicest people you will ever meet. Jim personally lent me his hammer and hatchet to chop firewood with, as well as some lighter fluid and parachute cords. There are several scenic tent sites to choose from, some of which have very convenient shelters in case you want to avoid the rain. The showers... More

We spent a night tent camping here and it's a beautiful place tucked away in the mountains. Nice staff, nice campers, well kept property. Tent camping area was nearly empty so the staff allowed us to pick any site we wanted. Went for pretty site right next to the creek.

The staff here go the extra mile. We have been to other campgrounds but have never been treated this well. They are shining examples that all should follow. Beautiful location,and quiet . Not the most up to date but they keep amenities clean. Highly recommend!

We have been to Moonshine Creek Campground many times. It is a very quite campground with a creek flowing down the middle of the sites. Most of the campsites back up to the creek and are very relaxing. This is one of our favorites camp grounds in NC

This was our first visit to Moonshine Creek. I don't think it will be out last. We searched endlessly for a small, quite campground in the heart of the Smokey Mountains in North Carolina. Not only are the owners exceptionally helpful and wonderful hosts, Jim has the unique ability to tell you the history of the area and quite colorful... More

I camped here several times in my tent by the waterfall, and in a cabin. It is in a gorgeous, secluded area of the Western NC mountains with a beautiful stream running through it and a pond. I heard they are starting to do very small, intimate weddings in their chapel soon as well. The owners, Dana and Jim, as... More

This was the first time to moonshine creek for Laura and I. I picked this spot from the pics and description from the internet. I can honestly say that we are so glad that we found this little piece of heaven. We weren't looking for a pool, fancy concrete pads, modern bath houses, etc. We were looking for a beautiful,...

We have stayed at Moonshine Creek many times. We have utilized the cabins as well as tent sites. We have found that every time we have stayed, we have had wonderful service. The owners are very welcoming and even have come to our campsite to chat and ask how everything is! They come by several times a day and clean... More
