My husband & I stayed at Campfire Lodging in September for a week. We were not able to get a Premium campsite as they book up quickly. The Premium campsites are small but have amazing views. The downside is that they offer no shade. However, in the D sites, you are in a shaded area and surrounded by woods. For those who are not able to secure a Premium spot or even for those to wish to partake of it, there is a very short walk to a small outdoors area with an amazing view of the mountains and water. There is limited seating but you can bring a few folding chairs to sit and take in the sunset. The RV's and pop up spots are separate from the tent camping and Yurts which are like a little bungalow surrounded by woodsy views. They are large sites with decks. There is a trail leading to a stocked catch and release pond. The gift shop offers camping amenities, ice, propane gas refills and firewood for sale. There are 4 bathrooms (single use - unisex), one of which is handicapped. There is also a laundry area with a coin operated washer and dryer. The best times for showering is right after they are cleaned which is around 12:30 everyday. Jason who works there will deliver a bucket of firewood to your site for around 6/7$. Ice is $4 a bag. There is a place for bike riding and jogging as the road is well maintained. Ande who works at the reservations and office management is great! There is a grocery store (Ingles) and a Citgo nearby. The Biltmore is only a 15 minute drive from the campsite. In Weaverville (nearby city), there are a number of restaurants as well. The mosquito's are not bad here at all. I would recommend this campsite. It offers a relaxing environment good for families or singles. Quiet time starts at 10pm. We felt like we did not compromise what we wanted to do at all. A great place to stay! We'll definitely be back!
