Nestled deep in the rugged folds of southern Appalachia lie valleys shrouded in fog and mystery. Within these valleys, you will find ruins of boomtime towns, soaring waterfalls, and roaring whitewater

Follow your sense of adventure into these valleys, and hidden amongst the tangled rhododendrons and laurels, you will discover the storied valley of Stackhouse and Wilson's Holler 

Surrounded by thousands of acres of forest service wilderness, the 32 acres of mountain ridgelines and hollers that comprise Wilson's Holler are your gateway to exploration. Five primitive, hike-in campsites and one primitive, hike-in lean-to allow you to fully immerse yourself in whatever form of natural connection you seek

 And boyo, does nature provide; the Southern Appalachian Mountains will provide you with a laundry list of activities to connect you with the world, all just within a short drive or hike. Experience the restorative waters of Hot Springs; hike to Lover's Leap and stand where a Cherokee woman stood up for love; raft by the old Runion Ruins: once the largest employer in Madison County, an entire area built up around an industry, now nothing more than a ghost town being reclaimed by nature; horseback riding, pontooning, trout fishing (don't ask where though). Heck, if you come at the right time of the year, you can hit the slopes for some snowboarding. You'll never run out of things to do, all while staying grounded and connected with the natural world 

But for the record, if you do just want to kick back and relax, we're here for that too. Come dip your feet in the creek, throw up a hammock and take a nap. Listen to the bounty of the forest 

Whatever your fancy, Wilson's Holler will help you get there. Of course, your animal buddies are welcome; they'll love it here too!

                             ------- For the nitty-gritty ------- 

Approximate distances: 30 miles from Asheville; 30 miles from Greeneville, TN; 20 miles from Weaverville; 8 miles from Hot Springs 

5 primitive campsites; hike-in (short hike, .15 miles or so from the parking); Max 4 people per campsite, 2 tents per campsite; no electricity, water is a .25 mile hike uphill (we would suggest bringing some jugs); composting toilet is available right by the campsites, in the bathroom/information building (please use a scoop of sawdust/coco coir after each use)

 1 primitive lean-to; hike-in (short hike, .1 miles or less from the parking); it is covered, so you can bring tents if you want but don't necessarily need them; Max 4 people, 2 tents; no electricity, water is a .15 mile hike uphill (we would suggest bringing jugs); composting toilet is a .25 mile hike to the bathroom/information building at the campsites (please use a scoop of sawdust/coco coir after each use) 

There is no cell service or wifi available on the property; the nearest place to get cell service is 1.5 miles down Stackhouse Road by the French Broad River. To get there: exit here, turn left onto Stackhouse; go all the way down until the road turns to gravel; keep going; you'll cross the railroad tracks and you'll see the river

There is a communal picnic table, as well as a propane and a charcoal grill. Fires are allowed in the fire pit, also communal. Please bring your own propane and charcoal. We may have split wood depending on the season. If you'd like to know if we have firewood, just send me a message 

Last but not least, your GPS may not get you all the way here. Sometimes it doesn't quite take you as far as you need to go. There are directions included with your booking; we'd recommend taking a picture of them so you have the directions once you lose service

       ------- Welcome! These woods look forward to meeting you! -------
