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.

The Eagles Nest Top Mountain View
Incredible Views
The views were breathtaking. One of the best campsites I have ever been to and I definitely plan to go back. It really is hard to describe how awesome the views were. With that being said, there are additional campsites nearby and when they are playing music loudly, it does take away from the calm and serene surroundings. Not sure if there was a quiet time that campers were supposed to abide by, but the campsites quieted down by 11pm. Another note, GPS does not get you exactly to the pin that the host provides once the reservation is confirmed. I would advise sending a message to the hose after booking for more detailed directions to the site.

The Eagles Nest Top Mountain View
Gorgeous View/ No on bathroom
If your looking for a spectacular view I highly recommend. We had stayed at site #2 on the very top of the hill and backed the truck up to the edge making a little truck bed sleeping area. The stars were so amazing then to wake up to the view of mountains in the morning was even better. NOW BE AWARE, make sure you pack toilet paper, and a portable bathroom. DO NOT USE THE PORTA POTTIE. YOU WONT MAKE IT ONE SECOND IN IT. THIS IS NO EXAGGERATION. The porta pottie on site hasn’t been maintained at all, there’s mold growing in it and the poop/pee has been in there for a hot minute. The smell is absolutely terrible, like no other. If you don’t believe me then that’s on you if you wanna find out lol Now the wooden one at the site ontop of the hill isn’t terrible, it’s just a bucket with a toilet lid but atleast it’s somewhat clean and don’t smell like something I never wanna smell again lol

The Eagles Nest Top Mountain View
Fantastic view.
We had a great time camping at the Eagle's Nest. The view was phenomenal. The site had an toilet and a swing which were great bonuses. Would definitely stay there again.

Waterfall Haven Campsite 12
Great secluded site with plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the scenery. The road down is treacherous but otherwise a perfect space.
