I was working on a project in nearby Linville Ridge and stumbled upon this wonderful place while searching for a campground near my work. The grounds are beautifully maintained, sites are level with concrete pad patios and they have a nice area for dogs. The staff was extremely nice and accommodating. There is an Italian restaurant, Mexican restaurant and a BBQ place within a couple of minutes of the entrance. It's a nice place to stay if you want access to the BRP without fighting a lot of traffic. We will definitely go back!

Very nice clean quiet park. All the pads were level and cement, included a picnic table. Laundry and bath facilities were clean and in good shape. Owners lived on site, very friendly and helpful. I would have rated higher except they charged by the foot. Our 34' motorhome was $42 per night. I thought this was rather high.
