We stayed here for labor day weekend and loved it! Facilities and grounds were clean. Kids had fun playing basketball, swimming in the pool, and the hayrides! When visiting the area again, we will definitely be staying here again!

We have been camping here every couple of years since 2007 (this most recent visit was our fifth, I think), and have never been disappointed. The camp is clean, and there is a lake where one may fish without a license (the Swannanoa River flows through the property as well, but fishing from the river requires a license). The camp... More

We rented a deluxe cabin with its own bathroom and kitchen. It can house six people - basically it's a small house. They have utensils and Cook wear. Same price as a hotel but you can cook your own meals and have a campfire. (We also recently rented a two-room cabin which was half the price and still nice, though... More

Very nice campground with a small river and two lakes. Quiet, scenic, lots of ducks and good fishing. The mountains in the backdrop provide for an outstanding view. The lots are a little tight but overall a great place to stay.

We go to Asheville every year and have recently started staying at campgrounds in our small camper. This was the perfect place for us, very peaceful, relaxing, and a pretty view. We were able to camp on one of the lakes and enjoyed fishing, walking our dogs around the lake, nightly campfires, and lots of peaceful time to read. Its... More

We stayed there in September 2016. The campground was nice and the people friendly. The cabin we stayed in was very nice. One thing I did not like was having to being my own linens. They advertise that, but, its still a pain. The campground is good but does not have a lot of amenities. I like the layout and... More

We were a little hesitant to stay here b/c of all the negative reviews about the staff and the train, but we had a fabulous time. We were to ourselves in a pull thru site and it was peaceful. Bathroom were very clean, but I didn't use any of the showers. Campground was very clean as well. All the staff... More

This was a great fun safe place for the family and friends. The kids were thrilled with the fishing, paddle boads, river and hiking. This is a great campground and a fun place to stay while visiting near by mountain hikes.

We stayed here over the weekend. KOA's generally have the same amenities across the board so there were no surprises here. What makes them different is the staff and the scenery. This is a very peaceful campground. You are surrounded by mountains and the only noise besides a camper pulling in is the train on the other side of the... More

this is a really nice KOA. So pretty, with beautiful ducks on the beautiful water and tall trees Friendly staff, clean bathrooms with good showers and a well stocked store. Close enough to the city, I would go back. Crappy internet is my one complaint.
