Campsite with trails to max patch
You can hike to Max Patch from the site. It was 4 miles round trip per our Garmin watch and we did it with an 8 and 4 year old (who were pretty exhausted but did it!) It was the most beautiful mainland hike I have ever done and I have been to many beautiful places. It can be easy to get lost so make sure to ask for specifics before you go from the host. The site itself was nice and is the only site you can park your vehicle at. Considering our gear, this is a must for us! The lodge is a small hike from the site but an interesting one and the lodge is equipped with a very nice clean bathroom and shower. I will say this is not a spot to camp if you are afraid or annoyed by dogs. We were greeted by a giant dog that jumped into the truck as my husband was opening the door and he went straight to the back seat to lick my kids faces. We happen to love dogs but were startled enough to jump out of the truck so fast and my kids were freaked out. This is apparently routine for the dog and he happened on our campsite often and stole a hotdog quite literally from my kids mouth. Otherwise, it was very relaxing and quite nice.
Dog friendly, great location
Beautiful campsite in a great location! Super close to Max Patch. David was very nice and helpful and the facilities on site were great. Our dog Margot especially loved the visits from David's dog Sunny, a verrry friendly 120 lb Black Lab. He did try to eat our campsite information packet and our paper towels, so maybe keep paper products away from him.
Camping in the pisgah nat. forest
We loved camping on David's property. The fire pit was great, and the stars were beautiful at night. We enjoyed a beautiful hike from our campsite where we met some AT through hikers. We will definitely return!
Great campsite and great hosts
The campground was very cool. The property is awesome and the hosts are super friendly. The location is awesome and access to the AT is really easy to get to. I would definitely stay here again
