Description

Latticed by crisscrossing creeks that sit 5,000 feet above sea level, Standing Indian Campground is an alluring, well-equipped campground. Welcoming everyone from the RV savvy to the minimalistic, no-frills backpacker, this area’s infrastructured by both hook-up sites and more primitive, secluded campsites. And, inundated by the carving waters of Nantahala River, Standing Indian Campground is a prime angling outlet for those of us who admire a decent wrist-bearing endeavour.

Great spot. Wooded sites for tents. Good hiking is accessible from the campground.

This is my all time favorite campground. My family has been visiting this campground since my grandfather was a Forest Ranger in the area in the 1960's. The icy headwaters of the Nantahala River run through the campground, this is a popular summer tubing spot for campers.
