I am giving this facility a star for the creek and a star for the beautifully remodeled combination bathroom/laundry facilities. In my opinion, that's about all there is to recommend it. Campsites are so close together that it is like camping in a parking lot. The sites are crammed side by side along the creek There is an open field... More

My wife and I stayed here and we loved it! We stayed at one of the covered tent sites and we couldn't have been happier with all the amenities available. There was a nice fire pit, water, 120v outlet, and a picnic table there for us, and the creek made for a wonderful background listening experience. We went to take... More

Great as usual but even better than before as they continue to upgrade the property. Jim and Dana again went out of their way to make our stay memorable. We stayed in a 30' class c and will be back... We also had some friends come along (tent campers) who loved it also...

We were there in June for 2 nights and had a great time. We tent camped in a creek overlook campsite. We originally booked a creekside tent site for 1 night, but they gave us the option to look around and choose which one we wanted as they are not booked. The boys, 4 & 6 liked the overlook site...

Cable TV was very fuzzy. No wi if unless you went to the office and asked. Then you could use if for 15 minutes. Owner was extremely rude. We complained about the smell of sewage-as did other campers. Only 2 washing machines for a large campground. We changed campgrounds and will never return.

Dana C, Owner at Moonshine Creek Campground, responded to this review

Moonshine Creek is not a resort campground but instead is a little off the beaten path set up in the mountains on a beautiful rushing creek. Some of the sites are smaller due to the many trees that we have in the campground, and for campers that are coming off the road without reservations the only sites that may be... More

My friends and I went backpacking and our camping plan were halted by heavy bear encounters. We couldn't find anything in Asheville (all booked) and we found this AMAZING campground southwest. I know campgrounds are not ideal when it comes to "deep woods backpacking," but we got the experience here. First, all the guests were amazing. Second, those friends that... More

My husband and I stayed a week in mid July and thought the campground was perfect in every way. It is not a big campground and we did see some campers struggle to get in and out of some sites but the camp hosts are great and will assist you in every way. The grounds are beautiful. The bath house... More

We stayed 3 nights in a sheltered tent site. Our family has the tent condo as my husband calls it, so we weren't able to put our tent underneath the shelter but that made a nice eating and cooking area for us. Other campers had no problem fitting theirs. It is was peaceful, you could hear the creek running it... More
