“Great Campground”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

This is by far the best campground we have ever stayed at. Wow, the views are incredible. We would recommend to anyone to visit this campground. The helpful & wonderful staff also made this stay so wonderful. Ande was very helpful with places to visit and directions & Jason was also very helpful he went out of his way quite a few times to help us.They just help make the stay better. This is the best campground anywhere. If you have a chance to go I highly recommend it.The views from the premium sites are the best, you can see the beautiful mountains from these. We are already planning our next stay.

Room Tip: The premium sites have the wonderful views.

We camped here in our motorhome. This campground is now in the top 5 we've ever visited. The view from our site was amazing. The premium sites are arranged so that you really have privacy even though they are not over large. Paved, with concrete pad for the table and room for lounge chairs. It was quiet, peaceful, relaxing and very well maintained. Customer service was excellent. Just one hint - if you are towing a vehicle behind your motorhome, disconnect before going up the mountain! We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Choose one of the premium sites. They are definitely worth it.

We only stayed one night but we wish we could have stayed longer. The views were fantastic. The entire place was immaculate and each camp site had a private outside area. There's a nice walking trail too. Would certainly recommend it. We stayed in our RV but this site requires you answer all questions.

We pulled into Campfire Lodgings at 7pm on an August summer night to find the office closed. We had not called ahead to make reservations because we were driving about 8hrs from the Outer Banks and weren't sure we were going to make it to Asheville as planned. Because we were tent camping and all of the tent sites were empty, we decided to set up camp, leave a phone message at the office indicating which site we were on, and just pay in the morning. I have to say that they seemed upset in the morning that we had done this. Personally I was a bit surprised that the office was closed by 7 in high season.
Aside from that, the views are everything that is promised - especially at 6am when the kids got up! The best spots are reserved for RVs which was disappointing for us, but understandable since this RVs represent most of the clientele. We got to stay in a lovely wooded sight with the bears (We luckily didn't spot any but one was seen just before our arrival on the site).

Beautiful campground but the rudest manager (she may be the owner?) we have ever met. We were going up the steep little road to the entrance when we were stopped by a woman in a Dodge Ram truck. She looked at me and said in a disgusted voice, "May I Help You?". Not knowing who in the heck this woman was, I told her I was just headed to the campground. She rolled her eyes and said, "THIS IS THE CAMPGROUND! - DO YOU HAVE RESERVATIONS?". I said no and she replied "WELL WE'RE FULL". There was a moment of silence as my wife and I sat there stunned and I said OK, we'll turn around. She said nothing and just drove off. We went on up to the campground entrance,turned around and left. We were so shocked by the rudeness, we both sat in silence except for the occasional "WHAT A WITCH!" we would each exclaim from time to time. I've been camping for many years and never ran across anyone that rude. WE WILL NEVER GO BACK.

This campsite D9 was very comfortable, beautiful and quiet. We did not have a bad experience with management and found the campsite host and hostess were friendly and helpful. We arrived after hours to a well organized packet explaining rules and regs and a map to the site. Thank you for a great camping experience and we will be back the next time we visit the Asheville area!
