| Great wooded area

Natural area that is next door to NC arboretum. Due to this, there are miles of trails. They have campground hosts on every loop. Bath houses are very clean. Downtown Asheville is 15 minutes away. Access to the Blue Ridge Parkway is very close. Nice small lake with nice small beach and dock to fish off of away from the beach. Very quiet and dark at night.

| Beautiful- Quiet in the National forest/mountains of NC

Dog and people friendly. Super relaxing. Shaded spots for variety of campers. Well kept bathrooms. Walking and riding trails. Weekend programs available but we were too relaxed to try them.

I love this place. Sites are well spaced out. People are friendly . The hiking trails are awesome.
