Ice cream is one of my favorite foods. Dolly's did not disappoint. There are many camps in the Brevard area. Many of the camps have a 'special' ice cream combination named for them. Fun! Shaded! Great ice cream!

The dairy bar is located just outside the Pisgah National Forest. They offer a wide assortment of ice cream. During the summer you will have to stand in line!

It’s 2017. There’s absolutely no reason to not tell your customers if you are open or not. There’s no signs. There’s no voicemail. There’s nothing on FB. This place is closed.

Great place for ice cream - they have so many flavors - should satisfy everyone. Especially appreciate that they support the local camps with special creations. Great environment to just sit and enjoy a great ice cream
