We really enjoyed our stay at the creekside campsite! This was our first time camping together and we are very pleased with the ease of our experience. The hosts, Mark and Sue were very friendly and hospitable! The campsite was very easy to find and easy to access. The sounds of the babbling creek put me to sleep each night. And the small hike suggestion on our check out day was DEFINITELY worth it.

Our visit to Black Mountain Creekside, was a pleasant sojourn by the stream. Our friendly hosts, Mark and Susan, and their canine compatriot, Nikki, warmly welcomed my husband and I upon our arrival. Right from the start, they ensured we were comfortable and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay.

During our short stay at Black Mountain Creekside, we set up our tent by the edge of the stream. The camping plot was well-maintained with a fire ring, picnic table, and access to an indoor shower and toilet.

There are multiple options for pitching a hammock and a tent on this property. The sky deck, just above the creekside sites, is also offered to campers and may be reserved with, or without, a large tent that opens to a panoramic view of sky and forest.

Our favorite part of the our stay, aside from getting to know our kind hosts, was hanging out by a gorgeous waterfall on an adjacent property. The reward for leisurely five minute walk is a uniformed cascade of spectacular beauty. Don’t miss it!

If you’re looking for a quiet, peaceful Hipcamp equidistant to Black Mountain and Lake Lure, look no further. Thank you for sharing your Hipcamp with us, Mark and Susan. It was such a pleasure meeting you both. My husband and I genuinely appreciate your kindness, humor, and hospitality.

Host Mark was friendly/helpful BUT the listing is misleading. The campsite is on a piece of wooded property near the gravel main road, recently cleared 3 spots (one w/a nice deck/tent on it), the other two sites cleared/muddy by a stream with a woodchipper still sitting there, no gravel/dry area to set up w/out mud getting everywhere. No picnic tables or place to build a campfire; The community firepit/picnic area is located on a campsite that was being used as their campsite and did not have the appearance of being "community", creek water wasn't clear "to use via spigot" as advertised and the bathroom/shower was on the backside of an old singlewide trailer that was part of the residence, you had to walk through their interior storage/laundry room to access and it felt creepy. Advertised hiking on the 5 acres/nearby but I saw no trails/only private residences on the gravel road. Cell service available standing near Marks RV window, which he happily offered up. Ample roosters sounding off 4am-7am each morning/neighborhood dogs barking through the evenings. The condition of the "site" Mark had intended for us to use was unacceptable for a tent so he offered the use of the upper decked site BUT it is not easily car accessible as stated. I have a Land Rover and it slide a bit due to the rain conditions a few nights prior, you have to backdown the narrow tractor road that has no gravel on it to get in/out so night two we parked at the bottom and packed our gear out.

This was an awesome weekend! Great location and great place to camp. There is a common fire pit with two sites right on the creek. Mark and Susan are great people and welcoming to my puppy and I. Definitely on my list to visit again.

Mark and Susan were very friendly and helpful when I had terrible luck with the rain during my stay. I’m sure it would have been a really nice stay if the weather had been good.

Mark and his wife were amazing hosts! Very responsive and available. The campsite was beautiful right next to a small creek that our frenchie loved. Very quiet too, and the perfect fire pit. Only downside was it was pretty wet - so depending on weather outlook bring your own dry firewood and starters. The road was visible from the campsite so if your dogs like chasing after cars that might not be the best option (although it is across from the creek so they’d have to navigate that and the upslope). But traffic was rare. Two other dogs visit and they’re just the sweetest! We regret not having the chance to visit the waterfall next door but the whole area is beautiful! It was a great starting point for a few days of adventure around the area.
