Our stay at Greenheart Forest was one of the best camping trips I can remember. David and his wife were incredible host and the property is absolutely beautiful. The tent site was surrounded by a canopy of thick green foliage right on the edge of the Pisgah National Forest. David helped us get our gear up to the site and has permanent tents set up if you don't feel like setting your own up. There are many beautiful huge trees to hang a hammock and the sites are well stocked with firewood for the cool nights. My kids enjoyed exploring the area during the day. The Appalachian Trail is a short 15 min walk and Max Patch Bald is a 45 min hike from the site and boast 360 degree views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We will definitely be staying at Greenheart Forest again! One of the best camping experiences I've ever had!

Greenheart Forest Finally reached Little Max Patch Bald where we would watch the Solar Eclipse. The whole hike took around 20-30 min. It was a beautiful walk!Greenheart Forest The fire pit is very large and open and all the tent sites surround it.

David was a very gracious host. He and his family are very sweet and made me feel very welcomed at their property. They let my friend and I use the showers and bathroom up at their lodge. And the lodge itself is a work of art! Truly a luxurious place. The camp site is right next to Max Patch, too. The trail is accessible from the campsite and has some fantastic views of the mountains.

We had the most wonderful weekend at Greenheart Forest. David welcomed us into his home upon arrival and was very friendly and open. He gave us a tour of the grounds and invited us to come to the lodge any time- the door was always open. Though we brought our own tents, the permanent tent set up in the middle grounds was like a palace and fit all four of us comfortably with room for four more. David had even laid down a giant square of carpeting to make it more comfortable. Firewood stacks were located at each campsite for us to use, and we made fires every morning and evening to cook breakfast and dinner. There was a short steep hike between the lodge and the campsite, but we were able to drive our Xterra and park about 200 yards from the tent. One evening after dinner, we went down to the lodge to use the facilities but ended up staying for almost an hour for gluten free cake and 'nice-cream' to celebrate another guest's birthday. David and Jeanette were always incredibly friendly and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed staying in the little slice of heaven that is Greenheart Forest and definitely want to return.

So many great trees around the fire pit for hammocking at the end of a day of hiking.The palace for the weekend! The tent was large enough to fit 6-8 people, had an antechamber for our boots, and carpeting inside for even more comfort.Nothing like bacon cooked over an open fire! The fire pit and provided grill rack were perfect for cooking our meals in the cast iron.Can't beat waking up to a view like that.

Did not have 4-wheel drive, but was able to make it up the hill to our campsite the first night. Saw a set of eyes in the woods after 10pm the first night. Girlfriend and I were a little concerned for our safety, so I called David, the host (there is AT&T coverage, but no Verizon). He made the 5-minute walk up the hill with Luna, his dog, to check on us. He offered to let us stay in the cabin for the night, which really settled our nerves and made for a good night’s sleep. It rained the next two nights, so the trail up to the campsite became very slippery and I was unable to get the truck back up there to load our gear. He offered to drive up his 4x4 and bring us and the gear back down. We graciously accepted! There is a clean bathroom and shower in the host’s cabin and there is a beautiful view at the summit on the Max Patch section of the Appalachian Trail, which is about a two hour roundtrip hike from the campsite. Hot Springs, NC is about a 30-minute drive from the campsite, which has a few bars and restaurants, a grocery store, camping supplies, fishing, and whitewater rafting/kayaking. I highly recommend the campsite and the friendly host. My girlfriend and I even got engaged at the summit during our hike!

We were welcomed by David (and his dog Luna) upon our arrival, and he gave us a quick tour of the facilities before escorting us to our campsite options. We selected a private site nestled in the trees with reasonable access to the lodge. The access from our campsite to trails, the AT, and Max Patch were phenomenal. David provided a hiking map and firewood during our stay. We will definitely be back.

A lovely, friendly place! Our GPS brought us the back way on a long, winding gravel route which was quite an adventure, but tiring. Pulling up the drive to the Lodge was a pleasing relief. The Lodge area is beautiful and peaceful. There was a short, uphill hike to our campsite that was daunting with all our (overpacked) gear, but our host graciously trucked our supplies up the tract to our site. The location is accessible to the AT for hikers. We had a short hike up the Trail to Max Patch for excellent viewing of the eclipse! Our site was large with a firepit and a cask of water was provided. A compost toilet was near, or we could hike down to the lodge for toilet and shower. Our dogs had a great time and we can highly recommend staying here.

Greenheart Forest is a beautiful property with access to the lodge, which is very helpful. Inclement weather can make for a difficult experience, as the high altitude makes it super cold. Hot Springs town is 35 minutes away which is great for a day of indoor activities if needed. You don’t need 4WD to get up to the property. Hosts are warm as is Luna their dog!
