Friendly host!. Very convenient location to DuPont MTB trails. Intermittent wifi but that's not the reason you go there! 30a. Warm shower & 30a power are quite the welcomed plus for the trip.

Beautiful Property Close to Trails
We had a wonderful time tent camping here with our dog! It was a beautiful property and we loved being able to use the hot tub after mountain biking! They provided clean towels and firewood which was a huge help. The mountain biking/hiking trails are right down the street as well so you don’t even need to drive over to the trail head. We will definitely be back!!

Great location
Great quiet location with great trail access to DuPont state part with awesome trails. Lower camping area down by the pond are great if you are brave enough to drive down and climb out. Didn’t want to take a chance with our van. Spots by the lodge were nice but not as private. Beautiful views form the lodge deck! Would definitely recommend this place!

Close to riding. Good ATT signal on the hill. Van camping space not quite level. Bring leveling gizmos, as necessary. Thank you.

Place was the perfect little sanctuary for my daughter and I. Spot looking over the pond was serene. Only stayed one night but will be back again! Thanks for having us.

Great spot!
While it seems pricier than other hipcamps the availability of running water and flush toilets after a long time on the road was priceless.

Bike retreat camping
Great, quiet spot situated close to DuPont state forest. As the title says, close enough to easily bike/hike to the fawn lake access area of the forest. Campsites are nice and decently spread out with a central portajohn nearby. Complimentary firewood! The lodge up the hill has a kitchen and sunny porch area as well as a hot, outdoor shower with a great view. Will be returning here in the future!

Loved the amenities and location! Def worth the money! And it was amazing to camp with the dogs! :) we will def be back!! Only thing I’d note is that the hilltop sites are super close together, like you will be able to hear your neighbors very easily. It would be awesome if you had a big enough group for both sites. It was great with quiet time hours, we weren’t bothered what so ever, but not quite the privacy we had imagined.

This was a great spot right next to DuPont! We loved how private our campsite felt and the hot tub and views from the lodge were great!

The hilltop tent sites were easy to find and pretty level. It’s a wooded area and on a windy night a little worrisome. Trees were solid though! Very friendly hosts. Nice to have a camp site with a bathroom and heated outdoor showers! Definitely recommend and hope to stay there again.

Great location, super quiet!
Great location for biking DuPont! The hot tub was super clutch for post rides, and the lodge will be super nice I’m sure when it’s finished. The view is still spectacular, and the bathroom/showers are already nice enough. Would def come back if back in this area.

Great peaceful spot. My doggo had the time of his life. If you camp in this spot you might find various treats my dog saved for next time.

Great campsite for DuPont adventure
We loved tent camping at DuPont bike Resort. Great surroundings and very relaxed and full of amenities. The provided firewood and shower were excellent touches and very easy check in and check out. Ideal base camp for day adventures in the area. we stayed at the #8 pond site right on the pond. Very ticked away and beautiful site. This is at the bottom of a very steep hill while our all wheel drive car did just fine we saw a Prius having trouble going back up. Would recommend this place for pups such a beautiful and relaxing place.

Great location @ Dupont!
Campsite was nicely set up and the included firewood was clutch! So convenient - perfect Great location for jumping on Dupont trails nearby, having a craft beer at the Canteen or driving into nearby Brevard for the day. The hosts are so friendly, provide many amenities and the land is beautiful.

DuPont Bike Retreat is a great place to stay! Quiet, secluded, and close to some great views! They're currently working on improvements and I'm excited to see what more they do.

This camping site has everything you could ever ask for. I feel like the listing undersells it. The lodge is set up to accommodate guests with towels and access to the bathroom,hot tub and hot shower. It was extremely nice to be able to end the day with a soak and then rinse off before bed. The camp site themselves were well kept and remote, however we were the only ones there. We met Kathy and their dog Taxi when we first got to the site and they were both extremely friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend you staying here if you are looking for someone chill!

An awesome spot for the weekend! We all had a great time with easy access to mtb trails, hiking, Oscar blues and even went canoeing the French broad via Headwaters outfitters. Great place to stay! We will be back again soon!

Great camp site!
Great camp site! In the middle of the woods so it’s beautiful during the day, Todd has wood pre-cut and easily accessible. Everything is easy to find on the property. We will definitely be back. Pro Tip: do not try to drive to the Pond Camp sites in the dark - the roads are steep and narrow and it’s incredibly hard to see.
