If you want to camp but are concerned about getting Covid-19 this is the place to camp in North Carolina. Bath house set up to protect people, masks required in public areas and campers being socially distance responsible. Clean buildings, shady campsites and quiet location. Thank you to the people operating this camp ground. We had a great week.
Beautiful little piece of land tucked into a wooded nest. There is a mile or so hiking trail with lovely lake views right off the campground. The trail is way too steep to try to get lake access from there but it is a wonderful walk through the woods. The showers and toilets are exceptionally clean and there is a strict rule system in place for Covid precautions. You can purchase ice and firewood on the grounds but the camp store does not have much merchandise because of Covid. There is Wi-Fi at the camp store area which has a nice deck where you can get some work done if necessary. (WiFi reception is spotty at the actual sites.) When we arrived, someone was actually set up on our assigned site so we moved to the next site, but that site’s 30 amp was not working properly so at long last the owner lent us a converter for a 50 amp site which was very nice of her. (We we worried we were going to have to go back home because she said the campground was booked!) Also, she mentioned this is not really an RV park because there are so few hookups and the access road is very narrow and winding, But if you can get in it’s a really great location, it’s clean, and it’s well appointed. This campground is close to Tsali biking, Deep Creek biking/tubing, Bryson City restaurants, as well as fun on Lake Fontana. The only drawback is there is not much privacy between sites, although it is very charming, and the other campers are very friendly and respectful. Also be sure to follow the rules when you are there, including prompt check in and check out time as I mistakingly thought checkout time was noon and it was actually 11. …
Turkey Creek Campground was recommended by great friends and they were right! The owners are so sweet and the campground was awesome. Close to places to visit. Bonus...clean bathrooms and showers. Thanks for a great stay!
This campground is everything for a quiet relaxing nature given experience. It’s located down into a small area with a babbling brook that runs along the back of the campground. There is a wonderful hiking path that takes you to Fontana Lake with trees, plants, wild flowers and the brook can be seen and heard. The park is kept natural and has the cleanest bathrooms, showers, and laundry facilities. We will be back without an evacuation!
We stayed there for four nights in late May. This is the first campground I've been to that had mainly tent campers. Each site has towering trees nearby or on the site, so there is plenty of shade. The bathrooms and showers were immaculate. The service was low key and spot on. The location is convenient to a multitude of activities. We'll definitely be returning.
