RV campers and road trippers will find spectacular views in and around Asheville.
Sitting pretty in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville’s prime location along the Blue Ridge Parkway makes it the ideal pitstop for road trippers. There’s a choice of RV parks in and around the city, so give yourself time to experience Asheville’s renowned music scene and sample its legendary craft beers before hitting the road again. The only question now is where to go first. There are two national forests and seven state parks within a 2-hour drive of Asheville, along with 95 miles of the Appalachian Trail and Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Perhaps check into a lakeside RV campground in the Nantahala National Forest, admire the fall foliage in Chimney Rock State Park, or park your rig in the Pisgah National Forest, where you can try rock climbing, rappelling, and whitewater rafting. The main season for camping is April through October, but some RV sites stay open year-round.
