The Blue Ridge Campground is located 3 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway on McKinney Mine Road in Little Switzerland. We are next door to North Carolina’s premier gem mining attraction, Emerald Village, and its North Carolina Mining Museum, and 3 miles from an ice cream shop, a coffee shop, a general store, etc.  We are a small family owned campground currently offering 7 primitive tent camping sites, 2 of which have rustic shelters. Our sites are private and wooded, nestled among Hemlock, Beech, Oak, and Rhododendron forests. Our property boasts an amazing variety of plant life - giant Ferns, Butterfly Weed, Milk Weed, Trillium, Mountain Laurel, Bee Balm, mosses, mushrooms, and wildflowers galore! We encourage exploration and conservation of our natural wonders, and invite our campers to explore our walking trail and pond (no fishing or swimming - but you can feed the fish!). Our restroom and shower (with hot water) are located at our main office/shop building, easily accessible for all our campers. We have drinks, bagged ice, extra firewood, and some basic camping supplies for sale upon request. Pets are allowed if they are well-behaved, restrained, and are not left unattended.

This is our newest campsite - and one of our favorite spots on the property!  It is spacious, shady, and mossy, and has a small creek running along one side.  Relax in the hammock (provided!) and listen to the soothing sounds of the bubbling stream!  There is also a little "peek-a-boo" access to our pond, complete with a small bench to rest on!  This spot has a table and 2 chairs, a fire ring, and wood to burn!  It is the closest spot to our restroom and shower - just walk out of the forest and across the driveway.
