The Oaken End Forest Site @ Silverbell Wood =>> Pitch your tents in a private forest campsite with stunning mountain views! A lounging deck provides mountain sunset views from a 2200ft elevation. A few deck chairs and post eyelets for slinging a hammock are provided. A short nature trail with small meditation deck, composting pit toilet, kitchen shelter and fire ring with flip grill round out the camping space. The Southern Appalachians in Western North Carolina is the nature-lovers' playground with hiking, biking, waterfalls, rafting, swimming, lakes, rivers, horseback riding and much more... 

AWD or 4WD is REQUIRED to get to our campsite. 

Parking is directly next to the campsite, so this is semi-luxury car-camping!

Firewood and a fire ring with flip-top grill is provided. 

A kitchen shelter with large counter, sink and composting toilet are yours to use. Foot-pump hand-washing stations with soap are located in the kitchen and bathroom. 

2 full 5-gallon water supply buckets for hand-washing stations are provided to campers initially. If campers need more water, they must fill the buckets themselves at the spigot a short walk down the road. This means carrying a 5 gallon bucket, filled with as much water as you want (up to 40 lbs per bucket), about 100 yards.

Campers must fill their own drinking water bottles at the spigot a short walk down the road. 

A gravel parking area right next to the campsite can easily fit 2 cars. There is overflow parking for 2 more cars on the side of the road (pull-out), a short walk on a gravel road from the campsite.

A mulched, open tent area is provided around the fire-ring with room for 4 large tents. Particular tent pads are not designated. The tent area is communal (ie. each tent does not have it's own secluded, private space.)

A lounging deck with chairs, next to the parking/tent area looks out onto a southwestern view of the Nantahala Range. The lounging deck has posts with eyelets for one hammock.

A short, steep nature trail along the ridge ends at a small meditation deck.

Trash, recycling and composting station is located next to the kitchen shelter. 

A private, enclosed composting toilet with sink and foot-pump hand-washing station is a short walk from the kitchen shelter. Starter toilet paper and starter soap are provided. Campers must bring their own TP & soap, if they will need more. A few gallons of water for hand-washing are provided to start with. Campers must refill the 5 gallon water supply bucket at the spigot down the road, if they need more water.

Enjoy!

Lovely spacious, private camp site complete with a fire pit and viewing deck. Enjoyed amazing sunsets.

First, let me say that the description of the site was accurate. The site overlooks the sunset, with a nice viewing deck and a smaller deck up a trail. There is a clean bathroom, a mulched area for tents, and a fire pit. The host was easy to communicate with and fast to respond. The site is a few hundred feet from the nearest house, but private, the houses not being visible from the site. The road up was decent, you will likely want a 4WD or AWD due to one steep gravel section. The locale is quiet except for the occasional rooster on a nearby farm. The place has a good vibe, we would stay there again.
