Voted 2nd in NC!! We are a Mangalitsa farm in The Smoky Mountains of western NC. The entire property is oriented toward private farmland views, a half mile of river and surrounding mountains. It's really quite remarkable to be so accessible yet feel so remote! Come swim, fish, cook and play! Check out www.smokymtnriverranch.com for more information. PLEASE NOTE, our rate is based on the number of vehicles in your group. The first vehicle is included in the nightly rate and admits 4 campers. WE CHARGE FOR ADDITIONAL CARS. The charge will be added to your booking once you select the number of vehicles at checkout. Please note that each additional car admits four campers. For EXAMPLE, 2 cars = 8 campers total. If you only have two cars but more than eight people, YOU MUST select the "Extra Person" Extra for each night they are camping. Please select these extras at checkout. If you have questions about this PLEASE message me prior to booking. Our 95-acre farm was once owned by the Davis family who predominantly raised dairy cattle. We now raise the wooly Mangalitsa pig and sell to the best chefs and restaurants. We sell our pork at the farm too! All of our campsites are next to running water except the two hilltop sites. Two porta-potties are on the farm and private porta-potties are available for rent. Groups of eight or more are required to rent a porta potty should you not bring your own toilet system with you. We do not allow the use of our small wooded areas as toilets. Please review the Extras options as we offer river lifts, firewood and dog stays; thank you! Quiet hours are from 10pm to 9am. Checking in before 5 pm is requested. Later times may be available with prior arrangements. Our farm is very dark and navigating at night is difficult. Please contact Catherine directly so you can be checked in safely and accommodate your schedule. NO CHECK-INS AFTER DARK. We are 1 mile off of I 40, 17 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, 15 min. to Maggie Valley, 10 min to the Elk at Cataloochee, 25 min to Cataloochee ski area, 10 min to Lake Junaluska and 15 min to downtown Waynesville. Asheville is 20 miles to our East.

Site 3 Rapids
This was the best camp site. We stayed at site 3 rapids and WOW. The pictures don’t do it justice. The place is stunning. It was so peaceful and waking up to the rapids was such an experience. The hosts were very kind and everything went so smoothly. We will absolutely be back with our family. Thanks for an awesome memory!

Site 8 Hilltop
We loved it here the weather was a bit colder then we anticipated but Catherine and Rick allowed us to move to a more sheltered site not problem! The land is beautiful lots to explore! Sites are very private and well maintained. Would definitely refer to a friend and would definitely rebook!

Site 1 Rocks
We loved everything about this beautiful farm; the friendly and informative greeting, the stunning views and land, the privacy from hosts and other campers and the cute animals on property really made it the perfect place to stay. We fell asleep to the sounds of the babbling brook and woke up to birds chirping and an occasional cow moo'ing or donkey braying. We loved everything about it and will definitely be back!

Site 7 Meadow
That’ll do pig!
Absolutely beautiful property and our campsite was so nice beside the stream! The rolling hills and well maintained property were relaxing eye candy. Bathrooms, water source and fire wood were very accessible. My kids loved seeing all the animals as we went to and from our camp site. We will definitely be back!
