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

The campground is on a narrow strip of land, sandwiched between a busy road and a railroad track on the opposite side of the river, that is used by freight trains. Several trains came roaring past our site the night we were there. They rumble by late into the night shaking the ground beneath you as you are trying to... More

We booked here based on their website promotion, which is far from what we saw once we arrived. The positive: the river is beautiful. The campground itself is dotted with RVs that have taken up residence, and are in various stages of their life cycle - mostly old and dirty. Renters are permitted to rent by the month, and continue... More

We're used to larger campgrounds with sites being more spaced out so it was a little tight for our liking. Due to the govt shut down and it being peak season for the fall foliage, we were limited on where we could go; so we tried this place. Owner (Bill) was very nice. Loved being on the river! We saw...

We are staying at the French Broad River Campground and they have one pull thru site, #5, it is as close to the river as you can get. We went fly fishing today with Curtis Wright Outdoors Adventure and caught rainbow and brown trout. It was a 12 minute drive from campground. The campground is maintain well and is very... More

My husband and I stayed in the Cedar cabin this past week while our friends stayed at a tent site for 3 nights. Enjoyed the cabin having a bathroom, shower, and bed to sleep on. The tent sites were nice especially with having water and electricity. For those that have complained about the train I think that's crazy. Feel like... More

Really enjoyed the stay here. Stayed at one of the tent sites and it was very clean and quiet. Bath houses were clean and not that far from the tent sites at all. Owners were very nice and friendly. I was sitting outside waiting to use the shower at the bath house and he came by and took me to... More

I am still shaking my head at some of these negative posts. We had a GREAT weekend trip. We tent camped on site T13. First impression was the tent sites were too small but once we started setting up we realized we had plenty of space. It was right on the river. VERY peaceful. The attendants of the campground would... More

I tent camped two nights at this campground this last Fri & Sat night (4/26 & 4/27). First impression was a very unattractive, disorganized front office. Price was right and the site is directly on the French Broad River about five miles outside of Asheville. But as I drove to my site I could immediately see that the campground -... More

I almost dont want to write a good review b/c I hate when I find a good place and then it gets mobbed. LOL Having said that, I do not want to steer people in the wrong direction, this is not the cookie cutter, 'starbucks' type of camp ground with resort ammenities, but this is exactly why I love it...
