Heartstone tent site is a stunningly beautiful, romantic, and very, very private campsite. You won't want to leave, but if you do there are many recreational opportunities in the area such as hiking, biking, rafting, fishing, and more! Stays of 4 days or more get a big discount!    

Enjoy the fresh, cooler mountain air, and the beautiful, private setting! It is perfect for 2, but an additional guest is an available option! Heartstone is located on a gently sloped, terraced slope where a divided mountain stream, the tumbling Squally Creek rejoins itself! The sun light filters down through the forest canopy providing a warm, inviting glow!! There is a 9'-6" x 10'  tent platform, a picnic table and charcoal grille, and comfort facility all within 30' of your private parking! There is also a nice fire pit area with benches overlooking the fire pit and creek ! Explore upstream on the 500' island trail, or go down stream 75' to a nice pool for dipping!

Attractive ($27) weekday rate, with a modest upcharge on Fr and Sat! Contact me for big multi day discounts!

The gravel road is uneven, and 5" of clearance is recommended.

 1 extra guest is an available option! 

There is parking for a second vehicle 50' away if needed!

It was a great site and stay at Heartstone! Awesome setup and great surroundings with 2 streams that have waterfalls you hear day and night. Definitely enjoyed the stay even through a night of rain followed by a night in the low teens!

Arrived around 6 (became little dark) Instructions to get there were clear but there was already someone camping when we arrived. After talking with them found that teservations were made with different numbers yet those numbers were not marked on the site atleast I couldn’t see them when I tried to look for it. Returned with disappointment and had to come to main road to get signal to find a hotel

Hi Sandeep. I am very sorry you were unable to stay at Heartstone. It appears you mis read the directions and passed the clearly signed "Heartstone" tentsite, (shown in the pictures) and went to another site further up the road! I do hope you will come another time. It is truly a wonderful place! Respectfully yours, Brian Pratt

This place was a beautiful, and secluded spot. The outhouse is clean and convenient. The tent platform is nice and level, and the picnic table gives a nice place to cook, and eat at in peace and quiet. Sleeping to the sound of the waterfall next to the tent was wonderful. The location really isn't difficult to find, but it is a bit of a drive to get back to it so make a checklist, and dont forget anything necessary. This is the price of seclusion. I cant recommend this place enough.

What a beautiful piece of property! Brian was a great host, giving you all the info you need to get to this great piece of land. Everything seen on the website is what you get at this property, nothing different nothing more. Beautiful clear creek running around the campsite. Fire pit, park style barbecue ,firewood ,very clean bathroom, very quiet,, What more can you ask for? If you’re thinking about it go ahead and book it, you won’t be sorry!

This area of NC is close to my heart. I've been camping and mountain biking there for close to 3 decades. I This was the first time I've taken my son to camp and ride. We loved it! Simply put we loved it. While we got turned around a few times trying to find it, it wasn't anything we didn't figure out with a little time. The camp is secluded, beautiful, well managed and maintained. The outhouse was spot on and we did our best to keep it as pristine as possible. There is a part of me that would give it one star just to keep people from finding this hidden gem, but that would be a disservice. It is a 5 star all the way! Brian was an amazing host and it was a pleasure to meet him in person. For those looking for a great small camp site in wester NC look no further. This is a gem of a spot! We will be back for sure!

My husband, our two kids (2 and 4) and 2 dogs loved staying in this little piece of Heaven! It's a dream camping site with everything we've always wanted. The natural beauty and the secluded area are just perfect. We are looking forward to making this a traditional place for our little family to visit! Highly recommend!

It’s a magical spot and has everything you need. This space is well cared for and absolutely beautiful. The sound of the creek and small waterfalls is peaceful and there is a short trail on the other side of the creek that weaves around a small island. It’s like stepping back to an undiscovered secret hideaway. It’s a perfectly designed camping site and I highly recommend it.
