We stayed there through the Fourth of July and the campground was completely full. The camp hosts were all very friendly and worked very hard to make sure all the bathrooms and showers were clean for everyone. There were lots of room for our children to ride their bikes and the creek nearby for fishing. Also, Several trail heads in the area for hiking, and one to a beautiful waterfall.

Took a nice trip with the men in the family and really enjoyed this campground. It was clean and the sites were pretty well spaced so you weren't on top of your neighbors. Bathrooms and showers were clean. The staff was very friendly and were on patrol to make sure we had everything we needed. There was a bear sighting while we were there and the staff did a good job letting everyone know to be on the lookout and put the food and trash up. The river was clean and a nice spot to cool off. We never made it to the swimming hole. The only negative we had is our site had a tall fire ring. Never could figure out why but it was a pain. Someone stuck it to the government good when they sold that idea. It was double walled so u had to get on top of it if you wanted heat. Actually we had to put a lot of wood on it before it was hot to touch, must be some safety feature because it's definitely not for heat. Other than that it was a great time and we will definitely consider going back.

Outstanding place for all of the following 1. Car Camping, 2. Jumping off point for the Mt. Mitchell trail, 3. Trail terminus location for a descent from Mt. Mitchell's summit. I agree with everything that everyone else has said about this magical place. Some tips...there ARE killer showers here (individual rooms that are kept spotlessly clean by the Camp Hosts). Treat the Camp Hosts with the high level of respect they deserve - they work miracles in this place keeping it friendly, inviting and most of all - CLEAN! Flush toilets. A river right beside it. Tall majestic trees. All of the following are available during normal daylight business hours at the camp office - kindling (2.50), bundled firewood (5.00), fire starters (1.00), Pepsi/Diet Pepsi/Mt Dew (12oz cans - 1.00), various ice cream treats including Klondike bars (1.00). There are no bad campsites, but if you wish to 'feel' the camp, get one on the river. Oh, hoping to catch up with he kids or listen in on that conference call while you are at BMC? Forget about it! There is no cell service on T-Mobile or Verizon inside the camp (small victory for nature). BUT, let's say you have a Verizon phone, and you really really need to talk to someone - well, here's the hint of the day. Walk down the main access road toward the junction with your phone on. Pass up all three of the private residences on the right, and you'll finally come to a stand of three trees growing together *ta-dah*...I don't know how, but you get two bars of Verizon in this exact spot. Like everywhere in Pisgah, when it rains, it pours, so bring a tarp if you can. Great swimming holes in the river too and if you fish, bring your fly rod - dozens of deep pools to cast into up and down the river.

Amazing sites right next to the creek. Super relaxing and secluded up in the mountains. This is a hidden gem. Its a perfect campground to be able to access the Mt Mitchell hike/summit and many other fun trails. I would highly recommend! We will definitely be back!

Brought a group of rookie campers here in April and we had a blast. The camp sites are nice and the bathroom facilities are the best. The showers actually have heat lamps inside you can turn on! lots of nice hiking trails close by and a field that you can play catch or volleyball in. The park is also dog freindly which is great for those with animals. There are bears however so make sure you plan accordningly.
