    Camping in Western NC?

    My girlfriend and I are plannning a road trip vacation this summer from Milwaukee, WI to NC. Just wondering if anybody can recommend a couple of campgrounds in Western NC....perhaps in the Great Smoky Mountain National park or Pisgah areas? We would like to take in all the area has to offer...mountain biking, hiking, rafting. I saw in an earlier post that Davidson River is good....I'll check that out. We're going to be in the area for roughly a week during the week after the 4th of July, so we're looking for at least two campgrounds to check out. Any suggestions?
    Thanks for the help!!!

    There is no mountain biking allowed on any of the trails in the Smokies, so I would skip that. The Blue Ridge is just as beautiful. Try Tsali and and Davidson River in Pisgah. The Nantahala Outdoor Center is very near Tsali and you could do some rafting there.

    Also, check out some of the threads below, they abound with good info. Davidson is great, but reserve a site or plan on some primative roadside camping (if you're lucky)
