We loved Dolly's. The line was super long but they moved people through incredibly fast. The camp flavors are very creative and so amazing. Prices are great. Staff are efficient but not very friendly. We would return for their great ice cream for sure.

After a hike in Pisgah Forest or anywhere in the vicinity, I always stop at Dolly's for ice cream. They have lots of flavors and a bunch of made-up concoctions. I'm working my way through the concoction list. Savor the flavor while relaxing in one...More

Positioned at the entrance of the Pisgah Forest, this is the kid's favorite ice cream shop in town. I have a to-die-for blackberry shake like nothing I'ver ever tasted. Lots of outside seating. I think you can even rent inner tubes right next door. Keep...More

When exploring Pisgah Forest and the Blue Ridge Parkway, you must stop at Dolly's for ice cream. The flavors are excellent and so are the milkshakes!

We stop here every time we are nearby and nightly when we are camping at Davidson River. Super fast service and really unique flavors. They'll also dip any flavor in chocolate, even if you order it in a cup.

Fantastic ice cream. Unique flavors, with names which match many of the Pisgah Forest attractions. Expect a crowd in the summer, but service is fast and there's a lot of places to sit.

Have been going to Dolly's fold 18 years. Ice cream is so delicious... (Try the Oreo cookie collider). It is the most popular place after a day of hiking and tubing. Watch out for Saturday nights when bus loads of campers show up around 5pm!

Took at group of hungry Boy Scouts for Pizza and walked over to Dolly's. They served us very quickly from the walk up window. Prices were reasonable and ice cream had great mixtures! Everyone was pleased with the expansive choices and flavors.

Ice cream is one of my favorite foods. Dolly's did not disappoint. There are many camps in the Brevard area. Many of the camps have a 'special' ice cream combination named for them. Fun! Shaded! Great ice cream!
