We LOVE Campfire Lodgings and the wonderful folks who run it so smoothly and extremely well. We are campers and find the sites there are very well situated, and not cramped together. We get a true feel of being away from it all, and yet we are actually VERY close to all the wonderful activities, art and culture of lovely Asheville. For me the nearby supermarkets and especially Trader Joe's (my FAVORITE place) make the location extra attractive. We also so appreciate the lovely clean private bathrooms, as well as the electric and water spigots at each site. It kind of makes camping rather luxurious!
My husband and I upgraded from a tent site to a yurt during our stay last Tuesday through Thursday. I just wanted to let you know that we loved everything about our time there. Neither of us have ever stayed in a yurt. That was really something! The fireplace made it so nice and cozy after having a wet, chilly night in a tent before we arrived in Asheville. Your bathhouse was phenomenal, I almost felt like I was in the comfort of my own home. The views from the property were breathtaking! Everyone was so friendly. We just wanted to express our gratitude, and let you know that we are spreading the word to family in the area that they should definitely come stay with you too.
GREAT park---Beautiful scenery and each site is perfectly placed with nature.
Talking of attractive, the view from the ridge is just STUPENDOUS, and the people in the RV's always seem to be so friendly and happy to share the viewing area with we tent types! Finally, Ande, Stormy, Jason and Marissa keep everything running like clockwork and always neat, clean and quiet. We so look forward to enjoying future camp-outs at Campfire Lodgings. Thank you All.
We enjoyed four wonderful nights at the campground. Our site was great. The workers that we met especially Jason were awesome. We loved every minute and will definitely be back. Also, even though our camper has a bathroom I decided to try out the public bathroom for a shower and they were great you have your own private bathroom toilet, shower and vanity! We will recommend it to everyone!
Any camper owes it to themselves to visit this campground. Wonderful staff,well maintained, and amazing views. The climb to the top[ is worth every foot of the trip. We went in November with a 37 foot Motorhome. No doubt we will be there again. Warm, Warm bathrooms. Well Done.
Just a note to say, we thoroughly enjoyed our camping trip at your facility! The sites were perfectly carved out and very accommodating. Also, the bathhouse was super clean and well equipped with all the necessities. We'll definitely be back, hopefully soon.
Thank you for being so helpful and welcoming.
Loved this small site. The views were spectacular and made driving up the gravel road (up and up the road) worthwhile. Seeing the sun rise and clouds lift over the valley below was stunning.
WIFI was lightening fast, camp staff very friendly and helpful. As advertised this is perhaps not the best site for young kids but for adults that just like peace and quiet. Good trails to walk the dogs.
Had a great experience at your campground. Everyone on the staff was very friendly but a special shout out to Jason. He was the one I had the most interaction with. He went above and beyond to ensure we had a wonderful stay.

Almost Heaven, extremely pleasant. Quiet and wonderful friendly staff. The Mountains views and overlooking the French Broad River are spectacular.
This is a beautiful Campground with view's to die for. The staff is very friendly and the campground is very clean. Lots of trails to hike. We watched the sun set from the overlook. So beautiful. We will be back soon and often. This is our favorite new campground. Thank you Campfire Lodging's for a wonderful time.
Excellent. Best view ever. Hidden gem.
We love it here. Grounds are kept pristine. Friendly and accommodating. The views are off the charts beautiful. Thanks to Andy for fitting us in.
We were there December 27th thru 31st. We loved it and made plans to come back September 21 thru 25. We had a wonderful time, our dog Jax loved the walks we took and the views were spectacular.
This was our second trip here. This time we brought lots of friends who camped and stayed in yurts. We already made our reservations for next year. Beautiful views great location. Awesome workers! We have rec this to other friends.
We loved our stay at Campfire Lodgings, so much so I wish we had booked more nights. The property is well maintained and the vistas are beautiful. Bath house is kept tidy. The communal seating area is a great place to sit with other vacationers to watch sunset. We met some great people! It is only about a 10 min drive into downtown Asheville and there is a well appointed supermarket just down the hill. We will return and plan for a longer stay next time.
Where do I start?! My husband and I just can't say enough about Campfire Lodgings! Our stay here was phenomenal. We stayed in tent site #4 from March 11th-19th, 2017. We cannot express in words how much we enjoyed our stay here! The staff are caring and accommodating. Jason, the maintenance guy, was beyond friendly and was a pleasure to talk to. The lady in the office (not sure what her name was) was also very sweet and kind. Truly terrific people. The campground itself is a gem! As the other reviews explain, the views are amazing! The bathhouse is heated - which we appreciated since the high while we were tent camping that week never got above 45 degrees! (2 of those days the high was 18 degrees!) The trails are quiet and offer great hiking experiences. There are a lot of negative reviews about the road you must take to get to the stop of the mountain where the campground is located. BUT, they are over-exaggerating it immensely. The road is not very narrow, there's plenty of room to pull off to the side if you need to. The road isn't even as long as others have explained. It's absolutely not an issue, even for someone hauling a camper or driving a big Class A. We are from Florida, so we are not used to the steep, winding mountain roads and we still weren't even the slightest bit nervous about the road leading up. Our campsite itself (tent site #4) was so much fun to hang at and it was, in our opinion, the best tent site there! We were very happy with the accommodations available. There were 2 days where we did not have running water at the site, but that was not the campground's fault...that was simply because the weather dropped below freezing. The seclusion was so relaxing. We enjoyed our stay here so much we added an extra day to our trip! We didn't want to leave, and neither will you! Campfire Lodgings will not disappoint. We highly recommend it and we are already planning another visit, but this time with our 4 kids. Thank you Campfire Lodgings for an unforgettable experience!
This place has the most AWESOME views! Cant wait to get back there on April 28th. Look forward to seeing you again Ande!
