Come build a fire & get some rest after a long day of exploring! This is a basic campsite that is located on the land of an old family house in a residential area, but tucked away just enough to provide the privacy you need. Location is everything with our site! You are a short drive from DuPont Forest, Sliding Rock, Bridal Veil Falls, as well as the Blue Ridge Parkway. This area is called the land of waterfalls! There is tons of hiking, biking, and more all around this campsite! We have added a small toilet chair to the land to meet Hipcamp guidelines.

Camp Sonny is a great central location if you want access to downtown Brevard and DuPont Forest.

We did not expect it to be next to a trailer park so we were up most of the nights with noise/animals from that. Additionally, there was shattered glass all over the campsite from the guest before us so I would not recommend bringing a pet or walking barefoot. That being said, we were looking for the basics to camp (fire pit, table, woods) and that’s what we got.

Courtney had fantastic communication and was always available.

Pros: Site is very convenient to Pisgah National Forest. Cons: site is only about 1/2 acre of overgrown lawn next to an abandoned, crumbling house in residential area. So while it's a great place to pitch a tent for the night, I wouldn't want to do anything other than sleep there. Note that you need to pull well into the driveway before you see the sign for Camp Sonny.

Sorry about your experience, Kevin! It seems the grass grows faster in the summer than we can keep up with sometimes. Thanks for the reminder to start mowing once a week in the summer months instead of biweekly.

It was a wonderful, private camping site! Although it’s beside a neighborhood there’s not that much noise that you can notice. A few cars sporadically. The picnic table and fire pit are very useful.

Camp Sonny met all of our needs. We wanted a base camp for two nights to explore the Pisgah National Forest. Camp Sonny provided us a private spot to set up our tent and allow our dogs without worry. We had the whole property to ourselves. The space includes a firepit, picnic bench, toilet chair, trash can, and a small grill. The site has a gentle slope throughout which made tent selection a small consideration. The camp host, Courtney, was very easy to work with, friendly, and communicative. The only downside is the site is adjacent to a street that started getting noisy with frequent cars around 6am.

Location-wise, the property is < 5 minutes drive to the National Forest entrance. It is also 6 minute drive to Oskar Blues Brewery, 10 minutes to downtown Brevard, and Walmart & gas stations are right around the corner.

And a reminder to all Hipcampers.. please clean-up after yourselves OR rather better; please leave the site cleaner than when you arrived. Have fun out there!

Courtney was very helpful and responded to every question immediately. Loved that!!! They had wood on the premises she offered. Idk if it’s for more than a night- yet... looks like it’s in the works This is secluded yard and you are by the road (not too busy) but it’s perfect for a night to crash. Has a fire pit and table. No bathrooms- pet friendly

Lots of birds singing. Private wild flower garden filled with buttercups (May). Great for morning tea. Look for the groundhog that pops up every now and then to see what’s going on. My cats loved his show. This location is close to a lot of stores including a Walmart and the Ford Dealership that I had an appointment with. I am traveling alone and felt safe.

Camp Sonny is in a prime location. Though it’s in a residential area, the space is surrounded by foliage, creating privacy. We couldn’t find it at first, so we messaged Courtney and she responded almost immediately clarifying for us. There’s a picnic table and a trash can in the space as well. Highly recommend as base camp for exploring Pisgah and beyond.

Great location next to the trails in Pisgah. It is in a kind of populated area, so not so quiet, but still a convenient spot. The picnic table and little grill were a nice touch!
