Indigo Eagle Sanctuary is an incredible place to experience the abundance of nature in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our Sanctuary features two main areas: Mountain Tops, or Creekside sites. Immerse yourself in beauty and adventure, with waterfalls, a rushing creek, fishing, and camping. Our creek properties include the Creekside Cabin, and Waterfall Haven (multiple camping site options, with their own areas by the creek). Guests have room to explore the mossy wonderland along Hornbuckle Creek, take a dip in a swimming hole, take an adventure and follow a rough trail (at your own risk) to another waterfall, accessed across the creek, or just kick back and relax. (Note to guests: Trail has not been maintained since last year. Go at your own risk.) Our mountaintop options include Eagle’s Nest and Songbird Campsites. These two sites provide breathtaking, long-range mountain views and epic sunsets. They are great for quick get-aways, with ease of access to main roads/highways. Indigo Eagle Sanctuary Sites are located within a few miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway, Cherokee Reservation (museum, shops, dining) and Maggie Valley, a quaint mountain town with more shops, food, and entertainment. Nearest grocery stores are Ingles in Waynesville, or Food Lion in Cherokee. The popular Asheville is about a 50minute drive from our Sanctuary. Plenty to explore here, while being able to unplug and unwind.

Eagles Nest Top Mountain View #2
Amazing view and easy to find. I will say that a 4x4 is definitely required. First, signs posted along the road say so. Second, the driveway on the way to the camp site is a little steep but it isn't that bad, yet will be much easier with 4x4. We'll worth the trip, especially for the views of the mountains and would love to go back one day!

Eagles Nest Top Mountain View #2
Great view. Table, fire pit outhouse fine. There is some old junk around like cabinetry, broken pots and pans, etc. that could be cleaned up. But the owner and his dog were both very nice and the view was absolutely spectacular. I really don’t think there’s a better view anywhere in the Smoky Mountains.

Frozen waterfall and sledding
This is my third time at IES and my second time at site 12. It was perfect in the winter, I recommend awd and snow chains if you do that lol. I had a blast and am grateful for a safe place to get away to as always
