Come experience private mountain meadows, on 70 acres, at the crest of the South Mountains. Camp at one of three sites, or hop around during your stay on the meadows below Bolin Knob. This entire listing is one booking, you’ll have the mountain to yourself. Views to the west of Mount Mitchell and the Blue Ridge Mountians; views to the north of Table Rock and Grandfather Mountain and to the east direct views of Silver Creek Knob. Stargaze the Milky Way at night with very little light pollution, relax by the fire, or explore the property and Bolin Knob. Hike adjacent to the property on 1,000s of acres of public land on South Mtn Game Lands. Nearby recreation: South Mtn State Park and Lake James State Park; fish/float the Catawba River in Morganton or Marion; bike the Fonta Flora trail at Lake James. Campsites we offer, pick one when you arrive: A. Spring Flat: the lowest elevation and easiest to access, has clear views to the east of the South Mtns. Listen to adjacent spring bubbling out of the mountain and wake up with a sunrise over Silver Creek Knob. This site is easy to access and best for low clearance vehicles. B. Old Homeplace: tucked into the mountain, this large, flat site has a firepit and several trees for hammocks. Clear views to the north and east. This is the best site for ground tents. C. Windy Ridge: the highest elevation site with sunrise and sunset views. The wind blows up here a lot! See the sun fall across the Catawba River valley and watch the shooting stars at night. AWD/4WD or hike to access this site. *We highly recommend AWD or 4WD vehicles, when you leave the state maintained road you'll be climbing 400 ft to the meadows. In order to access the highest elevation site 4WD is needed most of the year. The majority of the road is packed gravel but some of the campsites are accessed through bumpy fields. You're welcome to park on the gravel and hike a short distance to the campsites.

Blue Ridge Stargazing
Was here a few weeks ago on a short camping trip. This spot is amazing!! The view is absolutely spectacular! The road up isn't too ruff to get to the camping sites but do recommend and AWD or 4x4 to access the camping sites. Will definitely be booking this spot again in the future.

Absolutely gorgeous location. I can’t wait to come back. Site c is one of the best sites I’ve been to in NC. Will was very responsive and gave really good instructions for his property.

Stellar Campsite
Absolutely stellar property! The view is awesome day or night. The grounds are well kept and having the selection to all four campsites is great - though C is the definite winner! The drive up to the site was fine for my small AWD truck. Nice campfire setup, hammock stand.

Incredible Mountain Views
Our family had an absolute ball camping at Blue Ridge Stargazing. There are abundant mountaintop meadows to choose from with literal otherworldly views of the Blue Ridge and Mount Mitchell! A storm rolled in while we were there but even that didn’t deter our fun as we got to see a huge mountaintop rainbow and the most beautiful sunset. Thanks for sharing your beautiful property!

This place is amazing. The views are incredible, and it's still somewhat close to town if you need supplies. We will definitely be back
