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!

Simple, classic spot. Nice little fire pit, too! The host had some kindling waiting there for me.Because when there's a downed tree to cross, everybody who's anybody has the desire to play on it, right? Right?This is what happens when you haven't camped in a few months and can't remember how to set your tent up.There's a nice flat trail that skirts the ridgeline down to the campsite.
