Grounds were in great shape and obviously well maintained. We tent camped on Memorial weekend and had a great time. Of all the campgrounds that we have visited across NC, Flintlock is now No. 1. The only reason that I couldn't rate it a 5 is solely due to the bathhouse. While it was stocked and kept clean, it is also very old and the water smells when showering. I hope that the owners are seriously considering demolition and replacement of the bathhouse in the near future. If you are tent camping or staying in one of the cabins, your going to have a considerable walk to get to the bathhouse. A small bathroom in the tent/cabin area would have prevented all the folks from going to pee in the woods behind our site.
The owners and staff were very helpful and checked on you to make sure you didn't need anything. Kids will love the river and rock climbing that it provides.
Perfect setting with the river & mountains and only a short drive to Boone.
See you there!!
