    nice campground not much different than any other ... redneck riviera you can take a boat or swim out on. Asheville is close if they want to get out and do something

    It's very nice. Bathrooms, hot showers, etc... All the sites are wooded with a dense canopy of trees. You can swim at the lake or ride the trails directly from your campsite. I live about 20 mins from there and camp there at least once a year.

    This is an often repeated interest here. Lack of responses are probably do to people being involved in other things over the weekend. Using the forum "search" feature provides a lot of info.

    I live here, so I don't camp there - but would say it's one of the better run facilities around.

    As far as close (3-5 mile) options for the family:

    Arboretum: http://www.ncarboretum.org/
    Discount Shoes
    Carolina Fatz Cycle shop
    Biltmore Square Mall
    K-Mart
    J. Crew Clearance store
    Petco
    Apollo Flame Restaurant
    Pappas & Beer Restaurant
    Celebrity Hot Dogs (owned by a local car racing family)
    (My secret Kid-Weapon) Asheville Die Cast: http://asheville-diecast.com/
    Farmer's Market

    Shall I go on? Have a great vacation!!

    Now you're cast of steel and cast aside. Broken dreams maybe, but you haven't died
