Few words describe how friendly Stephen and Kelly are as host. They repeatedly went out of their way to ensure that our friends made it to the camping areas. Gave advice on trails, accommodated early arrivals and late departures, additional guest and cancellations. It's hard to believe, but all of this occurred over the duration of our stay and BackRhodesRanch handle it with ease. The camping site is really nice. The river percolates gentle behind you and the degree of privacy cannot be matched. Plenty of space to accommodate your group. Just ask Stephen or Kelly and see what southern hospitality looks like in the modern world.

Beautiful spot! Came by truck. Might be a difficult spot for a small sedan but worth it! Conveniently located, but feels like your own little world by the river. Stephen is super helpful!

A great secluded spot right on the French Broad River. You could set up a large group of tents in the grove of trees and have plenty of room, or just have it all to yourself. The hosts are incredibly nice, friendly and accommodating. Dogs are allowed and can be off leash (as long as they don’t chase the horses) without worry. Maybe 10 mins to DuPont and 20 to Pisgah.

Good land with lots of site options. it’ll take you a minute to drive down to the sites after entering the property, but worth it. There were lots of mosquitos so bring the bug spray.
