Great camping on the river!

Date:

October 26, 2009

The campground is broken into two distinct areas; large, RV and fifth-wheel sites up on the hill and individual tent and small pop-up sites below by the river. The river front sites all featured 20 and 30-foot covered canopies, which were great when the weather turned wet. We had heavy rains on the first night and they released water from the dam upstream, offering us a great view of the rushing river. Brown trout and carp were visible from the riverbank, but very elusive to fishing. There are small docks at each campsite that take you out over the river. All tent sites had electricity and water, some 30amp and some 120 – all had metal picnic tables and small fire rings. The bathhouses were located up by the main office and were all very clean, but only had three showers and four toilets per side - a little busy in the mornings, so we had to take traffic into account. The campground is pet-friendly with a pet exercise area, motorcycle ramp for taking your bike on and off your truck/trailer, a playground for the kiddies, arcade with video games, pool tables and access to nearby hiking trails and grocery stores. The campground shop featured ice cream, a smattering of groceries, camp fuel, propane refills, $8 wheelbarrow loads of firewood and very weak coffee. The couple running the campground was very, very friendly and offered great suggestions for food and activities. You're less than five minutes from Lake Lure and the constant drone of traffic at the other campsites - Chimney Rock is just a little bit past Lake Lure and you can buy your Chimney Rock tickets at the campground store at a discount. If you're looking for an off-the-main-drag campground next to the river, this is a recommended site for tent and small pop-up campers. The big rig RV sites looked very close together, with no buffering between the sites - all sites appeared to feature water, sewer, TV cable, 30amp. Most of the sites on the bluff, overlooking the main river, appeared to be long-term, with large 5th wheelers and trailers occupying the nicely covered, garage-like sites on the upper portion of the campground. There were also multiple log cabins at the site that rented for about $75 a night. They were actually little trailers that featured a small living room, galley and sleeping area with a porch overlooking the river and creek. Great value, great hosts, close to tourists spots but not in the middle of all the traffic - we would visit again!
