This historic park is nestled in a valley between two mountains. It is very shaded and we have the perfect temperatures (70-72) even though you are camping in August. We strive to make you feel like one of the family. There are fishing trout ponds and 20 miles in either direction we have anice little towns with gift shops, restaurants, nearby!
The park is level, which is unusual in the mountains. Lots of trees!
This is one of the most historic peaceful, relaxing camping locations in North Carolina!

Trout Creek Camp was more that satisfactory. All staff members were polite and helpful. Accommodations were more than adequate for the traffic and crowding. The facilities were well maintained, I would love to see growth in this venue. The weather was perfect - never too warm and just cool enough. The primitive camp sites run along a babbling brook which made for a pleasant and relaxing evening soundtrack. There is access to trails, waterways, and more raw land that one could access in one vacation. I encourage this camp to everyone looking to get away.
We had a fine time at Total Eclipse Total Budget Camp. The camp had only recently (like maybe in the past few days) been re-opened to handle the eclipse-caused overflow from other camps in the area. But the staff people were marvelous - friendly and helpful -- and we had a charming site right on Trout Creek.
This was a good bargin for the eclipse the next day. Otherwise I don't think I would have enjoyed it. There was some running water though not at every canp site. The only bathrooms were port-a-johns that were not super clean. Like I said, good deal for the event but overall the site needs some maintenance.
Terry and his whole crew were fantastic! Recognizing the need for more space, Terry prepared and opened up his beautiful property to all of us Solar Eclipse campers! My boyfriend and I found out he was able to get off work on Thursday, and we had fruitlessly looked for somewhere to camp. We aren't impulsive people, but we drove down Saturday with cautious optimism, and were able to make a reservation for Bear Creek/Turtle Creek that afternoon as we were on our way!
I can't say enough about how welcoming Terry, his crew, and the campgrounds are! We will absolutely be back, with friends!
The host was trying to meet our needs, but the campsite was still in setting up so the amenity advertised on the website, such as hot/cold shower or water supply at the tent site wasn't available.
It had a potential, but the tent site was full of poison ivy without privacy between each tent site.
