Near the base of Mt. Pisgah, this quiet campground is the highest elevation campground in Pisgah National Forest at 4,980 feet.
RV and tent sites available but no electrical, sewer or water hookups. Fifty-two sites can be reserved in advance, with 74 available on a walk-in basis. Because of the distance from Brevard and Asheville and limited amenities, campsites are almost always available.
Wake up in the clouds, bathe in the sunsets and drink in the intense beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains from the numerous nearby trails, including a moderately strenuous 1.5 mile hike to the top of Mt. Pisgah.
While some may consider the limited cell service “roughing it,” campers can walk (not hike) a short distance across the Parkway to eat at the Pisgah Inn, named the Best National Park Lodge in the country in 2015 by readers of USA Today, in large part because of its excellent food. Tip: Make a reservation during peak season from mid-May to late October.
Because of the elevation, expect changeable weather any time of year. Cool to moderate temperatures and breezes are typical in summer, but strong winds and rain are common, along with occasional hail. And yes, black bears.
