Amazing old growth forest, just 15 min from downtown Asheville. Rough camp and primitive on a 7 acre oasis. 30 years ago this farmland fed the Leicester area. Directly across from the Leicester Community center. Our region is beautiful with many close tourist attractions.

This place has a lot of heart and a lot of potential. There's a quarter mile hike along a little ridge to the site I chose. Simple, classic Appalachian foothills forest. A rudimentary campsite at this point with a simple fire pit, but after speaking with the hosts, I know that they have plans to further develop this spot into a really special place to escape. A little bit of traffic noise from the highway in the daytime, but since it's in a rural area (even though it's right outside of Asheville), the noise tapers off in the evening. Especially with the wind that comes with camping on a ridge. Still feels a lot like a back country campsite, without having to go too far into the back country. Really cool spot for sure!
Surprise! we’re at your home!
When we arrived at the site, our host’s partner was alarmed to see us at her door, but recovered graciously and directed us to the campable area. When we made a trip back up to the car, the host himself introduced himself & apologized, saying that he had not been expecting us, as he had not seen the notification (from earlier that day) and had “not logged into HipCamp for about a year”. He said a photographer had been out at that time & that was the last communication that had occurred. He said, shrugging, that as long as we were okay with the camp, so was he. Due to disuse, the property was overgrown & we had to clear a small space on which to set up camp. We provided our own firewood, and did not see a place to dispose of waste.
**This was after another booking, for the same weekend, which we were allowed to make (and funds withdrawn), only to then be told by the host that they were actually unable to host that weekend. (My partner’s account, not mine.) There seems to be a breakdown in communication between HipCamp and hosts that is disadvantageous to the camper. We could have arrived and been turned away (or greeted less graciously), finding ourselves out of town without a place to stay, not to mention the financial setback of the first booking.
