My parents bought the 120 acre property in the 1960s. I started clearing and building the campsite in 2019. Watch the sun rise on one side of Troublesome Gap and watch it set on the other side.  There is a circle drive for 2 teardrop / squaredrop or pop up campers and plenty of spots to pitch tents.   There are also great spots to hang your hammock.   Camp where my family camps.  My parents bought the property in the 1960s and we have camped up here, hiked, hunted, and cut firewood many weekends.  We decided to share the property so you can enjoy camping up here too! The property is in a remote location where you can enjoy the wildlife and the cooler temps in the summer.  You'll have 3 acres all to yourself.  You wont have to share the spot with anyone else unless you bring them.  The closest grocery store is an hour away but the Trust General Store with a restaurant and gas approximately is 7 miles away.  There is also a burger joint (Dave's 209) on the way to the Trust General Store.   This camping site is in a remote area and the nearest neighbor about 1/2 mile away.  Max Patch is about 25 minutes away and features beautiful hiking. The quaint town of Marshall is about 30 minutes away.  Asheville is about an hour away. The campsite is easily accessible from Baltimore Branch Road.  However Baltimore Brand Road (public road) is steep in places and we don't recommend an RV bigger than a popup camper.   If you are pulling a trailer you'll really want to consider having 4wd. If you aren't used to driving on steep dirt mountain roads, you may want to bring your 4wd vehicle. If you have a 2wd vehicle, then you'll want to come to the site via Big Pine Road. This route will take you through Walnut, NC We also provide a porta-a-john for your convenience. Once the reservation is made, I'll send out an info sheet with important info like the gate combination.  Please let me know if you haven't received the info sheet within a week of making the reservation. The inclusion policy below is from HipCamp corporate. Our policy is much simpler. Be respectful to others and the property and have a good time. This is a campsite where have the whole 3.5 acre property to yourself. You are surrounded by properties that vary from 40 acres to over a hundred acres. You are with the people in your campsite and pretty much no one else. We just want you to have a great time and bring home great stories. It seems like every visitor to Troublesome Gap has a great story. Come camp with us and build your own story. Important Note: Water is only available on the site from May through September. If you camp on the site Oct through April, you'll need to bring your own water.Watch the sun rise on one side of Troublesome Gap and watch it set on the other side!

Second visit to Troublesome Gap
Camping at Troublesome Gap for the second time. The set up of the camping spot is great with the circular drive, power, and water. Montie is always very responsive, we appreciate him sharing this great spot!

Highly recommend!
We loved this campsite! We came with a big group of friends for my birthday. The site is easy to get to even in a 2wd car. There was enough space for four tents. The amenities like the porta potty, bench around the fire pit, water spigot and electric made camping easy and enjoyable. Highly recommend!

Great remote site with amenities
Really fun spot at the top of a mountain. Fairly far from most things so plan appropriately. The water/power/toilet make it pretty luxurious as remote sites go. Despite the trees the sunrise/sunset were pretty amazing. We had trouble with getting dry wood so may consider bringing your own as I suspect it rains pretty often up there. We had 24 hours of amazing sunny weather and then 12 hours of some pretty heavy rain/storms - we were prepared and so enjoyed it all!

Beautiful campsite
What a great spot to get close to nature! The extra amenities were a big plus too. The host, Monte, went above and beyond to help us after we discovered our car would not start upon our departure. He called a neighbor who helped us get on our way. The drive to the site is beautiful so we recommend to take your time getting there. We’ll be a repeat customer.
