I absolutely loved my stay here! I ended up with a much later start than I anticipated, and ended up booking a room to stay in in their house to avoid waking up other neighbors setting up camp late at night. They were wonderfully accommodating, and their home and surrounding property are beautiful. My black lab Kaki was able to come along with me and she loved being able to explore and smell all the fun smells. The shower they offer for campers and guests is gorgeous. Their location is peaceful and quiet. I can't recommend this place more highly. Looking forward to returning next time I return to the area!

Lois and Jack were very friendly and accommodating. The site is located about 20 min from all of the popular breweries in Asheville. The bathroom is clean and you can take a shower for a few bucks. Would stay again.

We enjoyed our stay at Firefly Ridge. Our campsite was very peaceful and quiet. The hosts were very responsive and helpful. We left a day early due to weather and Lois immediately checked in to see that everything was ok. I would definitely recommend this spot to other campers.

Super sweet hosts, very understanding when I was running late. Site felt private and safe. I would return and suggest the place to friends. :)

Thank you for the compliments. When you called rather late you sounded in a little distress. We didn't want to pry obviously but thought it proper of us to ensure you had a safe place for the evening. We hope you enjoyed the Asheville area Jack and Lois

Such a great location, 20 minutes from the River Arts District, a beautiful drive along the French Broad River. The hosts were helpful and accommodating. Great fire pit and the camping area is private in a wooded area, near enough to the house to walk to the restroom.

This is campground was perfect. It was tucked away in the woods enough to not feel like it was backyard camping, but close enough to the house to use the bathroom and have access to running water. Lois was a great host and made sure we had everything we needed. There are also several trails/walking paths around the property that lead down to the river.
