Biltmore near Asheville, NC

Has anyone been to Biltmore and able to recommend CGs in the area?

15 Uphill Rd, Swannanoa, NC 28778, is a short 15 minute drive and fairly nice with gravel sites. I prefer Creekwood Farm RV park in Waynesville, NC a little further out. The first is built on a hillside with lots of trees and the other is more level on a creek.

Never camped there, but the Biltmore is a fantastic place to tour. Plan on 2 days and you still won't cover it all.

I would recommend the Core of Engineering Park; Lake Powhatan in Asheville NC very close to the Blue ridge Parkway. We had a full-hook up site with 50Amp service. Stayed there for 5 nights and if you have a Golden Passport or a senior pass the sites are 50% of the cost. The only problem there is very spot cell reception for phones, my satellite dish did work in the campground as long as you can find a clearing.

We camped there in a 2010 318SAB Cougar 5th wheel with three slides 35FTt long.

We stay at Mama Gertie's. The campground is half way between Asheville and Black Mountain.
Here is a link to our album of our stays at the camp.

I am with StoneyG on this one I stay at Creekwood Farm which is off exit 20 on I-40 and it is less than 30 miles in to Asheville. They have pull-thru or back up to the mountain stream. Good Wi-Fi to!

I second Mama Gerties. Very hilly but the scenery is beatiful. Try to get a site on the top

Who needs a campground? Just pull that rig right up to the front door and run an extension cord to a plug on the wall! Ole George Vanderbilt won't mind!

2 suggestions:

1. Go when the Christmas decorations are out.

2. Hope this doesn't offend you folks with kids, but this is not a good place for young children because you want to take your time and look at everything and read about each room and all the history involved. With kids, they will become bored very quick. With the price of admission, you need to get your moneys worth. I agree with OC, 2 days, you still won't see it all!

Well here we are in NC and the weather is great. Stayed at Mama Gerties and the grounds are phenomenal! Yes up on the hillside but-- every site is level, didn't need to do anything but unhitch and put down the stabilizer jacks. Quiet!!! eventhough I40 is less than a mile away. The hosts are friendly, accommodating and the facilities are clean, modern, and well groomed. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
