That's Mabry Mill, about 1.5 hours from me, on the motorcycles. Nice restaurant to eat in also.

I live maybe 15 minutes from the BRP here in Jackson County, NC. There are two choices stay in private campgrounds off the BRP like Mile High near Balsam or Bear Den near Spruce Pine for example or stay in National Park campgrounds along the way. I have ridden my bicycle on many sections of the BRP and driven the entire thing. It is a cool road for sure and the places off of it are nice to explore as well. I actually make a custom chocolate bar sold in their NPS visitor center gift shops. I prefer the NPS camping experience but have been both to Mile High and Bear Den. I have stayed at Grand Father Mountain RV park near Valle Crusis for a bike event called Blood Sweat and Gears and have stayed at Stone Mountain State Park east of the BRP near the Virginia border for another cycling event called Hurt Pain and Agony. I would reccomend both but liked the state park much better.
