A lovely spot tucked back in the woods, with great hosts. We ended up coming back for a second night! Will will definitely be returning in the future.

We had a very nice stay. Lois and Jack were hospitable. The bathroom was nice and clean. The campsite was clean. The site was about 25 minutes to downtown Asheville.

Excellent hosts. Beautiful site. Brought water out to us on arrival (so nice), firewood on site, convenient with a nice remoteness. Always good to meet good people around the (spacious) communal fire pit.

This place is perfect! Only 20 minutes to downtown Asheville, and very quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Lois and her husband are very friendly and helpful. They even provided us with a cooler of water, and their bathroom for campers has a separate entrance so that it's private. Very clean as well!! We will definitely be back!

Aislyn, Thank you for the great review. We do try to reach out a little farther to help our campers enjoy their stay. Happy that you noticed. Sophie says "Arf, arf"

Lois was very accommodating for our late arrival. They offered us multiple locations to park and camp and even offered to let us stay in their Airbnb (since it was raining).

We didn't get to see their scenic campsite views because of where we parked, but we plan on coming back!

Response from Lois, the Host, on October 12th, 2021

Daniel, thanks for the kind words. We have had several late arrivals and, in our traveling years, have been late arrivals ourselves. So we know that a late arrival has probably had a hectic day. We were happy to assist in making your setup easy and to afford you a safe quiet place to unwind. Sophie is our "camp ground greeter". She thrills in meeting new people. We worry that she will be a pest but her cuteness seems to win the hearts of even grumpy travelers. We're glad you were able to enjoy her enthusiasm. You're both welcome back anytime Jack and Lois

This campsite was lovely! Lois and Jack were friendly and hospitable hosts. The site was large and had picnic tables and a big communal fire pit. Good spacing between sites for privacy. Access to the bathroom is easy and convenient. Easy 20 minute drive to downtown Asheville. The property is gorgeous with lots of wildlife. We would stay here again!

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!
