NC Mountain Campgrounds

This is one of the few sites that I would trust open opinions such as good destination campgrounds. I subscribe and contribute to RV Parks dot Com so I am familiar with the opinions posted there.

Iím looking for a park in North Carolina for a long summer stay such as May Ė October. Full hook ups only including 50 amp. Thinking of Hendersonville, Ashville, Waynesville, areas or others in the western part in the mountains. Anyone have any experience in these areas and could recommend a park.

If you are set on the 50 amp you will be narrowed down quite a bit. All KOA's have 50 amp. Some select campgrounds have 50 amp. Most all have 30 amp

I spent a month at Four Paws Kingdom near Rutherfordton in 2010 and loved it... but it is primarily a dog lovers location. Very secluded and quiet but certainly not an RV resort. No pool or spa but the owners are some of the nicest folks you'll ever meet.

Check out the Outdoor Resort in
Lake Toxaway. It's only for class A's but it is in the mountains. If you are wanting a more routine campground look at Raccoon Hollar in Glendale Springs just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Hope this helps.

Outdoor Resorts in Lake Toxaway is a beautiful location, also on the same scale are parks in the towns of Highlands and Cashiers which is a short drive from Lake Toxaway. Use caution when climbing the road up see the review of Outdoor Resorts on this web site.

In Waynesville, NC there are a few:

Pride RV resort
Creekwood Farm RV Park
Moonsihine Creek Campground (Good SAM)

Asheville-West KOA in Chandler
Happy Holiday RV Village- Cherokee
There's even a Yogi in the Smokies in Cherokee

All say they have both 30 & 50 amp available

I have been staying in Great Outdoors RV Park for the last 9 days. Just north of Franklin on 23/441. New, clean, friendly, reasonable rates. Some road noise on SE side, lacks shade trees. Best park I've ever stayed in...but then I haven't stayed in that many.

Great Outdoors is wonderful and the people are great! I am planning on going back during peak season in Oct. . The sites are to die for from the mountain tops. If you walk to the end of the resort to the waterfall you can see the mountains. Lots of local waterfalls to see. Enjoy!

Check out Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in Asheville. If I look out right now it is a great view.

Thanks all for the replies. I would have responded sooner, but TS Issac had me moving the rv around. I'll check some of these out, I'm going up that way by car for a family Thanksgiving and will make some side trips for a first hand look at a few of the recommended sites.

My husband has been looking around the Franklin NC area for a place for us to spend next summer. He came across one he was interested in. I may be spelling it wrong but the name is Cartoogie Creek CG. The summer heat here in the Nashville TN area is getting more than we can endure. It's always cooler in the mountains.
