I rate this place well because it is a convenient location. You are a few minutes from downtown and a few minutes from Biltmore Village. I had preconceived opinions based on other peoples reviews, so felt the need to share my thoughts. We used it as a base to visit Asheville. We knew we weren’t going to spend a lot of time in our camper while we were there. It is close to highways and you can hear it when you are outside, but we kept our fans running at night and it never bothered us at all. There is a steady stream of walkers, runners, bikers, etc, but I was never uncomfortable. You are connected to parks and a large trail system, so that’s actually kinda nice for most campers since we tend to be active too. There is an off leash dog park about a mile away so we were able to let our dogs off leash to play everyday. Follow the instructions that they send you to go down the road and turn around so that the sharp curve is not a problem at all. I didn’t even look at the bath house since I used our own facilities in our camper. We had no interaction with the camp hosts at all. I saw them ride around and pick up trash, but that was it. We would stay here again.…
Great location down by the riverside. Rustic, basic facilities with friendly service. Special thanks to Nicci and Kurt. Lots to see and do around the area. Try to get a shady spot right next to the river. Great footpaths along the French Broad River. Pet friendly!😻
We booked & paid in full our reservation online on August 18, 2021 for 3 night stay at 59$ plus taxes for October 25, 26, & 27 th. We were given confirmation & actual site #. Upon checking in during early afternoon, we were assigned backing in to 10’ bushes to the highway & ramp. What angered us the most was the attitude. When I informed he management that we had reserved the site & confirmed our space over 12 weeks prior; what has to happen tosecure a space we were told e “ hadn’t locked in”. We could find NO SUCH INSTRUCTIONS ON THE WEB SITE. MADE UP? Who knows. Left after one night. Oh, if you complaign, they call the cops. You can do better.
We thought it was a good location & reasonable rate for the site and liked that it was right at the riverfront. We noticed a few bug at first, then more, then when we left we realized our RV was infested with what is called "Brown marmorated stink bugs"! Everyday we had at least 3 - 4 bugs pop up on our ceiling and now that we are home from our 39 day trip across country we are having to have the RV exterminated to rid of them. So disappointed. We enjoyed touring the Biltmore Estate, however the next day when going into downtown we were very sad to see the park in the center of town had been taken over by homeless individuals so it took away from the attractiveness of the city.
Management here has been awful during this stay! Ended up leaving during the stay and finding another location because of how we were treated. We were moved locations a total of 3 times in the first day!! Awful awful! The place is clean but if you can find somewhere else to stay must do!
Location is clean, accessible, & lovely. Campground host was very helpful and the whole experience was great. Nice large and level sites. Some interstate noise, but definitely not intrusive. I highly recommend and will return!
Pros & Cons. Pros: Very close to most tourist attractions in Asheville. Right next to French Broad River. Close to walking/biking trails, laundry, restaurants, breweries, public parks. Nice concrete & grass sites. Well maintained. Cons: Could be a really nice campground....... if not for the horrible 24/7 engine braking noise of semis on, and exiting, the freeway next to campground. No real check-in, greeting, info. Had to go to camp host later when found bathroom needed an access code. Greenway runs through middle of park: joggers, bicyclists, dog walkers etc. ABSOLUTELY NO SECURITY. Anyone can come through the park at any time. Very narrow bathroom aisle between toilets and showers - doors bang each other. $300/wk. You decide.
Stayed at Wilson’s RV park in Asheville, NC for a few days. We are in a big rig (45 ft towing). Right on the river, quite little park with spacious back in sites. They had been flooded (1st time ever we were told) the week before we arrived due to hurricane Fred and NO maintenance had been done to clean it up but it was mostly dry. Then it started raining while we were there which resulted in MUD EVERYWHERE and to top it off the grass hadn’t been mowed and was taller than our toy poodle. Also, there is no office, a guy staying in one of the sites checked us in. Won’t be back!!!
We recently spent the weekend at the RV Park. The location is great. We were able to tube the river right from the campground using Sky Tubing. We also had access to great restaurants nearby. The campground could have used a recent mowing of the grass around the sites. The men's bathroom was out of toilet paper the entire weekend. Despite this, we will definitely return the next time we want to tube the French Broad.
The website makes this campground look a great place to stop for 1 night. However , if we had to stay there longer than 1 night upon arrival, I would not have been a happy camper. The pictures you see online are deceiving. First, the directions say if you have a camper bigger than 25 feet to go to the end and turn around at Citgo there is absolutely no way a camper of any size can make the hair pin turn to get into the campground. Once we get to our site, we are next to what appears to be an abandonedii rundown permanent camper; the grass was long and unkept; we were on the side of the highway which is loud and unnerving when you hear semis hitting the guard rail. There is also a walk/bike path that runs literally right through the middle of the campground, so if you're looking to sit outside and relax or feel safe about leaving your stuff here, think again. Next, the hose valve leaked incessantly and the water pressure is terrible. Water was definitely not clear. The area in general is less than desirable, the citgo down the street had no gas. We traveled into a downtown area of Asheville that looked like a rundown hippie town where we also went to 2 different gas stations that had bags on all the pumps. (This isnt the campgrounds fault but just gives you an idea of whats around you) $45 a night is WAY too much for this campground. The reason why we chose this spot is because it was an easy off and on the highway to finish our trip to SC but if I had to do it again, I would travel a little further off the highway. I recommend cleaning the place up and lowering the night rate.…
