I would like to visit Mt. Mitchell, the highest point in North Carolina. Can anyone recommend a camp ground? There are lots in the Asheville area, but it would be great to have someone with experience recommend a place.

Any other comment about Mt. Mitchell will be welcomed.

Absolutely without a doubt you must stay at Mountain Stream RV Park that is between Marion NC and Mount Mitchel. You will only be a short distance from Mt Mitchell. If you can not get into Mountain stream, then Tom Johnson Camping Center has a very large Campground/Rally Park that is only about 5 miles from Mountain Stream. Read the reviews on Mountain Stream and you will understand why this is a must stay campground. The campground is not large but has a stream and is the prettiest little campground.

I second jayco's recomendation for Mountain Stream. We camped there a couple years ago, having the stream to listen to when you go to sleep at night sure was nice.

Take warm blankets & jackets. It's getting cool here at night and we aren't all that high (Franklin, NC).

Thanks for the comments. I have read the reviews on Mountain Stream and will try to stay there. If not I'll try Tom Jophnson CG.

I'm told some CG's close for the winter on Nov. 1st. Is that pretty much a common practice in the area?

I searched: Google/Local/Campgrounds/Asheville, NC and received a list of 8 CGs. Very interesting discovery. This will be helpful in making future plans.

Thanks for improving my retirement.

Warm blankets & jackets; Cool nights; doesn't that sound great! Add a fire, a hot drink, a comfortable camp chair and it may not get any better. (Thank heavens for the gas heater and electric mattresses.) I'm more than ready for the cooler months.

It's a shame there are so many pressing matters between now and the New Year! Sometimes, it isn't easy getting away. Maybe that's what makes camping all the more enjoyable when things do workout.
