You could celebrate your fine acquisition at Moe's Original BBQ. We remember Asheville with great fondness.

Hi Baj!

We visited Asheville last summer--loved it! We were staying at Four Paws Kingdom in Rutherfordton. WONDERFUL camp for adults and their pets!!!! I think there is a fiberglass rally there every year (Aug. or Sept.)

Welcome!

Hi, guys!!!

We're just down the Mt. from you in NW SC.

Have you ever been to the Nantahala area? It's beautiful. Forest Service campgrounds abound, but most do not have onsite water and electric.

Lake Powhatan is really almost in town, but from what we've seen you have to make your rez MONTHS in advance. Mills River and Davidson are nice if you don't mind the lack of on campsite electric & water. We've been used to tent and pop-up camping so it's notta big deal.

Anyway....see ya on the road...and welcome to the group.

J of J & C

Hi neighbors

No we have not camped in the Nantahala area but definitely want to. Do you have any favorite spots in that area? Hookups are nice, but we are fine without aswell. We are planning on trying Mile High campground at the end of the month for our first outing and it does not have hookups either.

Yes hope to see yas on the road!

Been thru Asheville a number of times. Nice place. Used to have the Honda Hoot there - it was nice. The little Vanderbilt place there is nice too! When it gets too hot, just go up to Mount Piscah campground. Very nice. 1/2 price ($7 or so) with National Park card.
Actually my brother is still living in Asheville and hope to get back there before long.

I think N.Carolina is the perfect state. You have mountains on one side, the ocean on the other side and Nascar in the middle, what more could you want?

OK...so here's our list of Nantahala campgrounds all are National Forest service and have no on-campsite water or electric. All have community water spouts and most have nice single unit (as in all to yourself) hot showers. We've only stayed at 2, but have previewed all of these campgrounds cuz that's what we do on "go home day".

Where we've stayed:
Van Hook Glade....small but very pretty...watch out for the 2 or 3 that are right at the entrace as they get the road noise and Hwy 64 can be pretty busy even at night during season. Sites #13 & 14 are very nice.

Jack Rabbit Mt....very nice....many site right on the lake, nice views from right across the road from the lake. Don't reserve #56 it is REALLY small and even though it is lake side has absolutely no view because of the bush/tree over growth. "B" loop (#'s 80-100) has a number of sites that you park above and camp below...if you don't mind the walk up and down it's OK...but, we mind.

Where we want to stay:
Standing Indian....there are a few sites right on the river in the first loop...they go fast...it has 3 loops with the middle one being open and newly re-built bath/shower houses.

Hanging Dog...small park, small lake, several very nice sights, community water, bathrooms but no shower. Howsumever, with your camp pass you can get into Jack Rabbit which is not that far away and has a very nice shower houses.

If you're into biking and boating Tsali on Lake Fontana, also in the Nantahala National Forest, is very nice, again with community water and shower house.

Now....Below Mt. Mitchell are 2 campgrounds that are very nice and have some riverfront sites. They are also Forest Service so they have community water and shower houses. We've not stayed yet, but they're on our list.

In the Pisgah National Forest, Carolina Hemlocks (outside of Burnsville) and Black Mt. Campground on the other end of the road and closer to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Coming off the Parkway you turn left for one and right for the other, but I forget which is which.

That should be a pretty good list to start with and get your taste buds started on exploring the region.

Happy Trailering.
