Find the Perfect Campsite

Camping is a favorite pastime in North Carolina. With the Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountains to the west and the coastal plains of the Piedmont region to the east, the great outdoors are just as much a part of the culture as the laid back cities like Asheville. Whether you're interested in resort camping or you'd prefer to get back to nature alone with a backwoods camping trip, the woods of Western North Carolina have something for everyone.

Try a Campground Membership

Resort camping is especially favored for families with young or adolescent children as amenities and security tend to be higher; while more experienced campers might like to explore on their own. If you're interested in resort camping, one way to explore the many campsites of this favored area is to obtain a campground membership. These memberships often give owners access to a broad range of campground resorts that often offer unlimited access throughout the year. Visit our Resorts Directory or our Campgrounds Directory to begin.

Find the Perfect Resort for You

There are dozens of Campgrounds and RV Parks and Resorts in Western North Carolina. You'll spend time with your family hiking, biking and fishing through the area's many forests. These resorts will range in size, amenities and facilities from the most rustic campsites to a more involved management geared toward families on RV trips; some even go so far as to offer fully equipped Rental Cabin in the heart of the forests.

Buy Resale

You can find campground memberships for sale on the timeshare resale market. Because they work much like timeshares, in affording owners private access to resorts of their choice, they're often treated as such and sold where the more traditional vacation properties are marketed as well. Visit our Asheville Timeshares article to learn more.

Backwoods Camping for the Experienced Outdoorsman

Of course, resort camping isn't for everyone. The more experienced camper might want to find their own campsite, and revel in the deep solitude that mountains and woods of Western North Carolina offer. Though it's not recommended for inexperienced outdoorsmen, backcountry camping is a great way to get back to nature on your own terms. Visit our Hiking, Backpacking and Camping section to being your next camping adventure.

Some Reminders

If you're interested in trying your hand with backcountry camping in this area, there are a few things you'll want to consider. First, you'll want to ensure that you're in an appropriately location. You'll need to set up camp at least 500 feet from trafficed roads. Roadside camping is not allowed. Secondly, you'll want to be sure that you haven't set up camp in a specifically managed wildlife area. These areas are not open for camping. Finally, in areas that do allow camping, please do not destroy the natural vegetation in the area and be mindful of what you bring with you. These areas will only stay beautiful if everyone does their part to maintain their natural integrity. And one last reminder: Have Fun!
