Had a great time at this campground with their drive up sites. Excellent cover with good foilage separation from each site so you do have some level or privacy. Fire pits are at each site, flat gravel spots with concrete picnic tables for use plus trash bag poles. Restroom with shower is within walking distance no matter where you decide to stay for the night. Close to AT hiking, Albert Mountain, and other attractions. The price point is very good as well. There are no electrical outlets at the drive up sites so you'll need to keep that in mind. You can also purchase firewood from the check-in building I love this place and will definitely return.

My troop stayed in the B/C group sites. This was a beautiful campground. Be aware you will have to drive through a creek (well over ankle, but not to my knees deep when we visited) to access the b/c group sites. Group site A does not have to cross the creek. This same crossing is perfect to play and wade in! The group sites have vault toilets which of course are very "fragrant" in warm weather, despite being kept quite clean. Just the nature of vault toilets. There are water spigots at each group site . There are clean flush toilets and hot showers very close by, just outside of the group area. The campground itself is absolutely gorgeous, well kept, and perfect for family camping. Great place for kids to ride bikes and explore. There are several hikes nearby. There is a small

Great weekend for hiking and relaxing. We hiked an 11 mile loop up Kinsey Creek to Standing Indian (on the AT) and then back down Long Trail. We had site 71 and was disappointed to find it connected to site 70. Any other campsite on Loop 5 seemed like it would have been private. There were only 2 showers in the ladies bathhouse, but we didn't have any issue since we took our showers in the early evening. Every night a bear was in the camp, but we had our food in the SUV and were never bothered. Our neighbors left coolers on the back of the truck and still had to chase the bear off. Pay attention to the pictures on the website because some sites are in an open field, while others are in the woods. The Nantahala River runs through the campground and there are

We were at Standing Indian around April 19. Nice campground! Most of the sites backed up to the creek and the sound of rushing water was very soothing. The sites are primitive -- no hook-ups -- but that's fine with us. We were looking for quiet and beauty and this campground had both. The sites are well-spaced so even if the place had been full, we'd still have plenty of distance between us and our neighbors. As it was, our nearest neighbor was squinting distance. There were three marked trails near our camping loop that followed the creek. We took a couple of them a little ways and found them to be easy to hike -- more like strolling through the woods than hiking. We enjoyed our night at Standing Indian and will try to stay there again the next time we are in the
