“review of campground”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2011

This review is of the campground only, we did not stay in the cabins or use the hot tubs. We stayed at site 543, right on the French Broad River. Would have been perfect, except for the train tracks that were in sight, & the LOUD trains that went through 3-4 times a night. This is a huge campground, & there are sites farther away from the tracks. Nice spacious site, we had two tents, a picnic table & fire ring w/grill, two cars & plenty of space. The first night there were no neighbors, so especially quiet & nice, 2nd night (Saturday) we were not so lucky. Campstore, playground, water & flush toilets were quite a walk away, but available, & there were port-o-pots a short walk from our site. (I liked that we were so far back, away from the RVs & crowds & gladly give up the convenience of indoor plumbing!) Unfortunately, because of the trains, I am not sure if I would camp here again.

Wow! I sure wish I had read some of these reviews before booking our two night camping trip to Hot Springs Resort & Spa Campground. To start with, this is the most crowded campground we have ever experienced, the prices are expensive and it is filthy!!! They try to cram in as many campers as possible which means you are bascially camping right next to your neighbors. There were probably 200 camp sites set up with only TWO bathrooms for the whole place. The bathrooms are like sheds and there was a constant line of people waiting. We went for a walk to see the river but there was no access to get to it without walking through somebody else's campsite. Trash was all over the ground. To top things off, withey decided to do a very loud fireworks display in the evening since it was Labor Day. Our dog was terrified! By the second morning of our trip, I woke up, walked to the bathroom only to find it overflowing with toilet paper and fecies! DISGUSTING. At this point, we packed up our car and left. I had enough of this place! We lost our money we had paid for the second night of the trip because there was no one at the front gate to talk too.

We live only about 2 hours away and wanted a last minute getaway. We called and reserved a cabin on the campground across the street. Since it was off peak timing, the cabin was quite inexperience and we loved it. There was a full size bed and a twin bunk downstairs and a full size loft upstairs. Perfect for a family. The view off the front porch was of a river. We did some hikes in the area and hiked to a lovely waterfall. We also reserved an hour in the hot tub at the spa. We had to wait when we got there because the folks before us would not get out of the tub we had reserved. they ended up getting back up and forcing them out. They, then, had to clean our tub so we ended up being thirty minutes behind. The manager apologized for the rude customers and the delay and even gave us a gift card for a free next visit. The tub is semi private. Meaning you are alone in your tub and there is a privacy fence around your area, but you can still hear the other customers partying and laughing etc in their tubs around you. We opted to go at night to see the stars, moon, etc, however there is a canopy over the tub so you cant really see anything. It was still pretty amazing and we had the best romantic getaway. Cant wait to do it again.

We drove over for the day to visit the Hot Springs Spa. I had heard great things about it from a friend and had heard on radio advertisements that they empty and sanitize the tubs after each use. The location is quaint. We picked a place right by the river. The water was nice and hot and very clear - at least until we turned the jets on. The jets immediately spewed out all kind of filth. We could recognize many *different* kinds of hairs and very large pieces of shedded skin. I jumped out in seconds, but it wasn't quick enough. DISGUSTING! We were gone within 10 minutes of arrival.

On August 15, 2011, you did not soak in one of our tubs since you were asked to leave because of inappropriate conduct with our reservations staff. This review is inaccurate!

This is a simple mineral spa ,natural springs are pumped into semi-private hot tubs, you are given privacy & dress code is pretty much up to you. You buy tub use by the hour. You can take your cooler or wine, relax a hour riverside or along the woodland views. The picnic area and grounds are never crowded and you can roam around, fire pits are available at night. Massage is available by appointment at the lodge & camping and cabins are at the location as well, although I have never stayed the night. This is just off of the Appalachian Trail & a great spot for hikers to take a break & and a soak. Some decent taverns a stroll away. The French Broad River is nearby for great river rafting. This is just an odd & happy find to slide into some nice adventures when you are in the area, outdoorsy and pretty basic. I repeatedly visit when I hike or raft in the area. Asheville is about a 40 minutes drive.

We had a beautiful view of the river, but no campground should ever charge $30 a night for facilities as dirty as you will find here. The bath was nice at the spa - and it was clean!
