YUMMY!!!!!

All the ice creams are named for the camps in the area. The ice cream is fresh and very tasty so which ever flavor you try you just can't go wrong. They do have the standard soft serve, icies, and milk shakes. The line is usually long and worth the wait.

We stopped here for ice cream on a recommendation and wow, it was good. The variety of flavours of ice cream, sodas and other things was unbelievable and the rocking chairs there to sit on and enjoy your purchases were great.

Dolly's is one of the best places to get ice cream, especially in/near Brevard and Pisgah! Try the camp flavors and relive your days at summer camp! Sit in a rocker and watch the lightning bugs (don't mind the pisgah traffic....) Do avoid going when any big camp bus is there-- they are usually good with the lines (coming from... More

This is one of the few remaining old time ice cream shops. The flavor combinations are all delicious. One scoop is plenty for most people. We always stop if we are in the area. I am working my way through the menu!

This is a bucket list stop for anyone going to Brevard / Pisgah National Forest. Hardly any summer camper for the last 30 years doesn't remember the day when their camp van pulled up and they first enjoyed a double cone of [insert favorite camp name flavor] ice cream. In fact, many young adults who're dropping their own kids off... More

Every summer I got to Rockbrook Camp in Brevard, and we often take trips to Dolly's. I also go on the way back from camp. It's a great environment and the ice cream is super tasty. The Camp flavors are creative and delicious. My favorite ice cream is the Kadeleah Avalanche. Really recommend going when you have the chance.

Mid afternoon after a rain shower found the parking lot packed. They move fast at Dolly's and offer a large variety and unique ice cream flavors. If ordering for kids opt for the kiddie cup instead of the single scoop as the single is more like a double as far as volume is concerned.

Dolly's is without question the best-run dairy bar establishment I've ever enjoyed, and their ice cream is excellent. I could not believe how efficiently they worked through a very long line of campers and little league baseball players. By the time we had placed our order and paid at the first window, our items were being handed out of the... More

Cute little place with great ice cream and choices. Several places to sit, all outside though. It was a perfect day when we went to enjoy both nature and ice cream

A friend recommended this place to me, and I'm really glad. I had one of the shakes, which was actually Sierra Mist mixed with sorbet - it was amazing! The guy serving even gave me the rest of the can to drink :) Big range of ice-creams to choose from too!
