My wife and I have camped at Moonshine Creek several times in the last few years and we have never had a bad time. On this visit we where with our camping club Tearjerkers which is a teardrop camper enthusiast club. Our visit was in May 2013 we had roughly 15 teardrops and with a large group like this it can sometimes be difficult dealing with campgrounds but the owners and staff were so accommodating. They gave us use of their meeting place/pavilion for holding our meals and other activities we had planned for the weekend. They had cleaned it up very nice for us also there our tables and chairs a kitchen couple of refrigerators a sink and two gas grills that had propane in them for cooking. As on our other visits the bath house is always clean and has plenty of hot water. This campground is situated in a great location you're very close to the town of Silva, Waynesville and not too far from Bryson city or Asheville. There are some seasonal campsites with I'm assuming retirees but they were very friendly to us as always. The majority of the campsites are somewhat close together but most of our teardrops are rather small so we had plenty of room in our sites plus we are a club and enjoy being together. In some of the other reviews about moonshine Creek it was mentioned that the electricity would go out from time to time, that has never happened to us when we have been there. It was also mentioned in a few reviews about a train nearby yes there is a train it does come by, from what I recall it was only one or two times it's a rather small train with just a couple of cars and is traveling very slowly, it was kind a need to see it but it is up on the hill side and does not run through the campground it is on the perimeter of the campground. Our group enjoyed the trip so much last year that we will once again be holding our Spring fling in May 2014 at Moonshine Creek Campground!
