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.We are a small family owned campground currently offering 12 primitive tent camping sites. 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! Try an organic apple off our heirloom tree in season! We encourage exploration and conservation of our natural wonders, and invite our campers to explore our property and pond.  Sunsets tend to be beautiful here when viewed from any of the more open areas on our property.  Many of our campers remark on how quiet it is and how many birds and crickets they can hear!  Our restroom and shower (with hot water) are located at our main office/shop building, a short walk down the driveway from this spot. We have drinks, bagged ice, firewood, and some basic camping supplies for sale upon request. Pets are allowed if they are well-behaved, restrained, and are not left unattended.

Our Whitetail Forest Cabin (Number 8 site) is a rustic shelter - floors, roof, walls, open doorways and window, situated within a wooded area of our campground property. The site has a graveled tent pad, picnic table and fire ring, and a good stack of wood for campfires!  Easy gravel road access and within short driving distance of a general store, coffee shop, museums, waterfalls, hiking trails, and lots of awesomeness to explore!
