I was very disappointed by how poorly this campground is kept up. Thank goodness we had full hookups and didn't need to use the bath-house- I would have pulled out and moved to a different campground. Game-room was never open, office was rarely manned and many individuals 'living' at the campground long-term-although they were very friendly. The road is extremely... More

We spent four nights at the campground, friendly owners and a beautiful setting. Where else can you camp on a beautiful river in a wooded setting so close to a great town. For those folks expecting more maybe a hotel would suite your needs better.

We camped here in a pinch on a recent trip to Asheville and were sorely disappointed. I probably should have done a little more research before staying here, but it was getting late and rain was headed our way, so we had to make a decision on where to camp. The location is pretty, it's right on the river so... More

Love this place! Have been coming here at least once every summer for the last 10 years and it never fails to disappoint. They skimp a bit on the firewood though and there is a guy down the street that will fill up the trunk of your car for the same price! Tent sites are always what we take and... More

Pros: Location (both on the river and proximity to Asheville) Cons: train across river, small sites, locked bathrooms, no amenities I'm usually pretty good when it comes to finding the "good" in places, but I don't have much to say. I guess one good thing is my GPS found it no problem. We arrived during the evening. We found the... More

We love French Broad River Campground for many reasons, the main one being the river. It is wide and not as swift as most mountain rivers. You can back your camper right up to the river and listen to the soothing, relaxing sounds 24/7. You can walk up and tube down the river or you can tie to a limb... More

The owners of this campground are very friendly, and is run by the same family for the past 20+ years. I've been coming here for almost as many summers! There aren't very many RV sites, so a reservation is always needed for those. The tents have their own section, away from the RVs, which is nice. There are portajohns in... More

It is a cool little spot, but they need NEW picnic tables, it was sit at your own risk. Good location Walmart and Ingles are close for supplies. Camp site about $32.00 with water and elect. The cabins are small and about $75.00 a night for 1 bed.

We read reviews after reviews..and decided to ignore the negative and stay positive..after all it is a campground..right?...WRONG! We will not complain about the trains running every 4 to 5 hours...i actually love the sound of trains. The river that flows by the property is what gives this place it's only splendor...it is i suppose why this place is still... More

I have stayed here 2 times. The first time was in 2010 and then again this November. It is a small campground on a narrow strip of land. There are a few cabins, some tent sites, and places for RVs. The view of the river is amazing. The cabins are small, but clean and cozy. This is not a resort... More
