We stayed here the first of April 2014. I will give the facts first and then my "feel" of the place last. Finding the campground is a little hard when we went. There was road construction going on on Hwy 73 so it was a bit confusing with all the orange barrels but after turning off the main road it is a quick right on a winding road. Not a problem with a pop-up but would give me pause with a big trailer. Entrance to park is on the left marked with a yellow lettered sign. Easy to see in the day time, but maybe a problem at night the first time you go. Drive into park is tight if you meet someone coming out. Office/ store is on the right with a pull off area to park when you check in. Owner checked us in. She was very friendly and helpful. She called for her husband to show us to our site and help position camper. After finding out we were new campers, he was very hands- on, helping us put into place to the inch. Campground is in small valley with most sites near creek. Some sites are high up on a bank that look down into campground. The site we chose was 20c, a pie shaped lot right beside the creek. Camper faced the creek with a tall (30ft ?) bank on the other side. It had the table at the far end of the site and fire pit at the front. With camper facing creek and tall bank, site was very private and big enough for the 2 of us and 1 dog. Larger family with kids might not have enough room and site drops off about 3 ft to creek so small kids would need to be watch close. It has water and elec. no sewer. Good base of gravel and a slight slope to creek/ far end, but nothing the could not be leveled by trailer and a board. Water pressure was good and electric was correct. The park is very nice with large back-in lots for RVs and good tent sites. A stream runs down the middle with some nice photo areas. There is a trout pond that may be stocked, not sure.I think maybe 1/2 of the sites are permanent renters, but they are in good repair. There are a few cabins for rent, some are newer than others. The store has basic needs. Staff was helpful, although they were on a shorter day (10-6) when we were there. The WiFi hotspot is at the office and is small and slow, but fast enough to get emails. The bath/ laundry house was clean but dated. The inside temperature was kind of low some mornings ( see-your-breath-low) but the showers had good hot water. The laundry units were in good working order. A mixed load with towels and jeans cost about $4 from start to finish. They had a few paperbacks in a rack if you need something to read. Enough of the dry stuff- This is a nice place! It was still early season when we went and some things were in the works/ being trained, but we still loved it. It made a great base camp for day trips to surrounding towns. The owners and staff were great. Always helpful and friendly. The only reason it does not get a 10 is the bathrooms. They work and were clean but very dated looking. But the owners said they are getting ready to do a remodel on them. I think with so many trailers with there own bathrooms, it has been low on the list of things to do. But don't let that 1 ding hold you back. We hope to go again many times. Worth the 5 hr trip there for us. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

We absolutely loved this place. Our site was right on the creek and it was very relaxing to fall asleep to the sound of the running water. The campground itself was clean and well kept. Wi-Fi was very weak unless next to the office and even then if too many people got on the whole thing would reset. The only issue we had were some complaints about our dog (barking when we were out) but even then the owners were very accommodating in working with us to come up with a solution. We would definitely come here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park that is spread out on quite a bit of land: great for taking our dogs for a walk. The sites are fairly level and gravel. The bathhouse was okay, but I would have liked it better if it had been updated a bit. The laundry room is in between the men's and ladies' rooms, but both washing machines were out of order when we were here. One thing I did not like was having to pay separately for cable TV, and extra guests over two people. The owner/manager escorted us to our site and was extremely helpful in helping us back in. There is a small store at the office, but to get groceries or go to a restaurant, it was 8 miles to Sylva. The road leading to the campground is near the Blue Ridge Parkway, but is very curvy. No problems maneuvering if you just take it slow. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
