This is a matter of opinion. It was easy for me because I was there in a 24′ camper van. But if you read online reviews for this park, by far the biggest complaint is how difficult it is to maneuver and park. Several reviews mentioned RVs scraping while trying to get into their spot. The other odd thing is that you drive up a hill to check-in at the office, then depending on what site you get, you may then have to exit the park and re-enter.

Comments

The location of this RV park is very convenient to downtown Asheville and touring the Biltmore Estate. For me, this is the only reason for staying here — but it is a good reason. To me, it felt more like a parking lot rather than a campground. I was there during a holiday weekend and had one of the worst spots they had (12-C, right at the entrance) because I hadn’t made a reservation ahead of time. Had I been in the “upper” area where all the Airstreams are, it might have felt more “nature-y.” But it is right next to the interstate, and if you are sensitive to road noise (I’m not), this might not be the place for you.

This park has full-hookups, plus wifi and cable. So that was nice! But there isn’t much to do in the actual park itself, and in my opinion, it is not a beautiful setting. BUT, it is so very close to the Biltmore (check out the pics below — that’s a view of the Biltmore from Bear Creek) and downtown. So it comes down to what matters most to you.
