I should have trusted the negative reviews I read before booking with the Broad River Campground. Some things are not in the control of the Campground owners (such as the close proximity to the sewage treatment plant, the Craggy Medium Security Correctional Prison, and the lot full of junk cars on the way there), however there is a lot that...

This is a great campground to visit. My family and I have been many times and I highly recommend it. We always get a campsite right on the river. Pet friendly. Awesome owners and very helpful. Very quiet and peaceful.

a little hidden rustic gem right on the French Broad River with great proximity to Asheville. it was recommended to me by a friend on a F/B RV page and I'm so glad we took it. the campground sets right ON the French Broad river. it's a little tough getting in and out, narrow driveway but manageable for our 31'...

Private campground right on the French Broad. Prices a little steep, but all levels of hookup available. Through road is right behind campsites, so road noise is near constant. Saving grace is the constant river noise! They don't want you bring in visitors from outside. Great spot for kids to get in the water or for kayaking or tubing.

We spent 3 nights at the campground. All of the RV and tent sites are right on the river and it's a beautiful view. The lots are very close together. Luckily, we had wonderful neighbors. The owners are very nice and keep a close eye on what's going on. They drive up and down the road multiple times a day...

We've been camping here for several years. I love that it's not row after row of campers in a field. The river is a few feet from our camper. I love the sound of the train. The bath house always seemed to be clean and I always had hot water. Even though it's in an out of the way place,...

I stayed for 2 months (June and July) 2015. Basic campground; owners on site; helpful when needed but not intrusive. Bathhouse was cleaned several times daily. Very accommodating. This is an older facility and due to newer rules/ regulations from varied government entities, there isn't much owners can do in terms of upgrades, more full hookups, etc. but wi-fi and...

This is a fairly small campground with sites directly on the French Broad River. Some of the reviews were not favorable, but we found our visit to be very nice. Our site backed right up to the river, which was wonderful. It was a nice flat concrete pad and we had full hookups. Great views of the river as we...

“Only camp here if you're in a camper because they "camp sites" are extremely close together and if you're in a tent you can hear everything. Also there are train tracks across from the river so if you're a light sleeper you may not like this place.”
