Tiny House in Happy Valley

1 site · Lodging300 acres · Lenoir, Caldwell
I moved here from San Francisco, to simplify my life, and accomplish my dreams. The Tiny house was designed and built by architect, Jesse Plaster. It's a unique cozy loft style design, set back in the woods on our property. It's purposely placed next to a creek, with a nice stone fire ring to really enjoy the outdoors. In the cold months, it's heated by a wood burning stove. Also next to the house are logging roads that allow you to hike the Ripshin Mountains. The Yadkin River is near by, and so is Boone and Blowing Rock. If you like mountain biking, bring your bike to ride Kerr Scott, or Zacks Fork trails. Also, check out the workshops at Pattersonschoolfoundation.org They offer sustainable living classes such as cheese making, mushroom foraging, blacksmithing, soap making, kimchi making, etc...  Also ask about our private Yoga sessions. Last but not least, there is a wood burning private sauna that your able to reserve.Come enjoy our Happy Valley! Mi casa es su casa!

Loafers Joy Meadow

3 sites · RVs, Tents6 acres · Zionville, Watauga
Our site was once part of a much larger farm growing tobacco and raising cattle and other farm animals.  The existing tobacco barn was built in the early 1960's.  The concrete pad used for RV camping was used to store silage for the cows.  The non-potable water source is a mountain spring that has been used on the farm since the 1930's.  While many tobacco barns in the area have been torn down for their rusted tin roofing and rustic siding, we have worked to restore the barn and preserve its history.

Dark Ridge Hide Out (Adults Only)

16 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents20 acres · Elk Park, Avery
Adults only! Inquiries and booking requests received after 9: pm may not be answered until the next morning. Dark Ridge Hide Out, is a 20 acre parcel in the Blue Ridge Mountain's on the back side of the Beech Mt Ski Resort in a secluded quiet and safe community with less than a dozen homes in a one mile radius. Away from light and sound pollution. Except for an occasional passing vehicle "and often none at all from 10pm to 6am" all you will hear is the sound of the creek which runs through the lower section by the RV sites, cricket's and frogs at the nearby fish pond and only the light from the moon and star's in the clear mountain sky and fire flies. It is my home place with a tobacco barn and a big combination cattle/tobacco barn built almost entirely just by my Mom and Dad in early 1940"s. My parents and grand parents lived off of the land here and raised cash crops like cabbage, corn and tobacco, we also raised sugar cane and made molasses, we had free range chickens, as many as 50 honey bee hives and over 50 head of cattle, two or three hog's and of course a horse. There was four main fields; two for cow pasture, one meadow to grow hay "now Christmas trees" and the main one on my part where all crops were grown is where the camp sites are. I grew up helping with the crops and other farm chores, one was to go to the pasture and bring the milk cows in and do the milking every day before and after school, feed the hogs and chickens, gather the egg's, let the chickens out in the morning and close the chicken house in the evening to protect them from critters like opossums, raccoons and wildcats. This is where I grew up, my dad grew up and, near where my mother and both of my grandparents grew up. My house was built in 1905 the same year my dad was born. The campsites are on my 20 acre section section of the original 82 acres with the house and barns, the remainder went to my brother but now is out of the family. The section of Elk River with the Compression Falls "45 ft high" and Twisting Falls which is part of Pisgah National Forest is less than two miles from here, and an old logging road going around the mountain above the river for about three miles to another Falls "Elk River Falls, 65 ft high" is a great place to hike or mountain bike. You will be free to explore and hike any part of my property except the house and out building's. The pond's are full of Trout and Blue Gill fish that are like pet's they love little pieces of bread. You can feed the fish but no fishing.

Camping near Boone guide

Tucked into the Blue Ridge Mountains at an elevation of 3,333 feet, Boone is a classic North Carolina mountain town and outdoor adventure hub. Hiking and biking routes weave through nearby forests and mountain slopes, leading you to waterfalls and epic views. Peak baggers will find multiple high-elevation summits to reach. Rock climbers can access some of the best trad and bouldering in the southeast. You can tube and white water raft on local rivers. Come winter, downhill skiing, snowshoeing, and cozy cabin getaways are the activities of choice.

Where to Go

Boone Vicinity

Boone has hiking access right in town at Howards Knob County Park. The Rocky Knob Mountain Bike Park has miles of biking trails (bike rentals are available locally). Local outfitters and guides can set you up for tubing on the New River or white water rafting on the Nolichucky or Watauga Rivers. Just 20 minutes from downtown Boone, the Julian Price Campground on Price Lake has tent sites, rv sites, fire pits, and hot showers. For RV camping, Boone also has a nice selection of RV parks and RV resorts with full hookups and wifi. 

Grandfather Mountain State Park

Thirty minutes from Boone, Grandfather Mountain State Park is home to 13 miles of trails covering moderate hikes, incredible valley views, and challenging routes to its summit. Crossing the park’s Mile High Swinging Bridge is a must. The adjacent Grandmother Mountain is a popular bouldering site.

Linville Gorge Wilderness

Head to the Linville Gorge Wilderness section of the Pisgah National Forest for even more trailheads, peaks, and camping near Boone. Don’t skip Linville Falls, one of the most scenic waterfalls on the entire Blue Ridge Parkway, where the nearby Linville Falls Campground has both tent camping and RV camping options with picnic tables, grills, and restrooms.

Blue Ridge Parkway

The Blue Ridge Parkway is a scenic route that spans an extraordinary 469 miles of mountain curves and vistas in North Carolina and Virginia. You can pick up the Parkway just outside of Boone near Blowing Rock. Headed west, the route takes you through Asheville and eventually to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Winter Destinations

When snow starts to accumulate on the peaks around Boone, locals head to the slopes at Sugar Mountain Resort and Beech Mountain Resort near Banner Elk for downhill skiing and snow tubing. Cross country skiing and snowshoeing is also possible at multiple High Country sites in this area.

When to Go

Summer is the best tent camping season in Boone, but spring and fall are also good (weather permitting). The Appalachian mountains put on a spectacular fall foliage show, while spring campers are rewarded with roaring waterfalls. Cabin camping makes this area accessible year-round, though winter visitors should be prepared for snow driving and ice on the roads.

Hipcamp is created with ❤️ and hope for our future.
