I decided to take a chance on this place after reading mostly positive reviews and I'm so happy i did! My girlfriend and I rented out the "tent with no name" for 3 nights and we both really enjoyed our stay. Lani & Jay were welcoming and very friendly from the moment we pulled into there drive way. The tent... More

We stayed at Lani & Jay's campsite for 3 nights. If you are hesitant at all about staying at this campsite, don't be! Lani & Jay have a beautiful yard (including a bamboo forest!) in a great location, minutes from downtown. They provide everything that you need (towels, hot shower, bathrooms, coffee, a place to cook, etc.) and also, if... More

We only stayed the one night but it was perfect. We had such a good time with Jay and Lani, they are wonderful host. We met another couple from Church Hill which is like 30 mins from Kingsport. We will definitely go back. Hopefully we can stay more than one night. It was worth the money. Clean and comfortable, we... More

This place is wonderful, esp. if you like camping but don't like all the work. The camp is quaint yet spacious. Yes, it is on abt an acre of land, but Jay & Lani have put so much work into it that you would not feel like you're only 10 min's from downtown. Lucille is 1 of the cleanest "campground"... More

My wife and I just recently spent 4 nights at Tipi Camp and had a wonderful experience. It is not a backwoods experience and is not meant to be. It is very much like an outdoor hotel. The owners, Lani and Jay were excellent hosts and you can tell that they care a great deal about the people that stay... More

Tipi Camp was a wonderful experience! I took my wife there for our anniversary/her birthday and the experience was like no other. Lani and Jay were very friendly hosts and made sure we had everything we needed. They even surprised my wife with some birthday decorations and balloons! She was thrilled! The lovely hosts even set up a fire pit... More

I loved every minute at the tipi camp. The owners are very friendly and made sure to attend to our every need. We were given fresh milk and sugar for our morning coffee, towels for our showers, and they even took the time to set up a fire for us to light after our day. The owners made sure that... More

Don't let the website pictures fool you like they did us and the other pair that stayed at Tipi Camp just recently. First of all, it is approximately an acre of land, with two black moldy tipis that are about one foot inside of the woods. This is not an exageration. We are very experienced campers who have traveled all... More

Wow. We feel really badly about this and quite surprised. Yes, we have a small camp and we try to be helpful with directions and suggestions of places to go in the area. It was a very rainy weekend so we know that may have affected their stay. (although they were dry in the tipi and in Lucille and the... More

We had a great time at Tipi Camp Asheville! Lani and Jay are great hosts, and "Lucille" (vintage Airstream travel trailer converted to bathhouse) was really cool and uber clean! Nice to have a cooler with ice and a.m. coffee provided. Enjoyed playing the "old-time" giant checkers. Also Jay is a great tour guide and led us on a couple... More

We really enjoyed the tipi camp in Asheville, NC. Very hospitable and welcoming, they really treated us like old friends. Lani and Jay are down to earth folks. The awesome night time campfire and coffee in the morning were great!! Hope to visit again, soon! Victor and LeAnn
