Linville Falls Campground on the Blue Ridge Parkway


Recommended Posts

We camped last week at Linville Falls Campground on the Blue Ridge Parkway, North Carolina. This campground has restrooms, but does not have electricity or water at the campsites and no showers. This campground has a dump station. The area offers cooler temps to get away from the lower elevations heat, plenty of places to hike, Linville Falls, Linville Caverns, Linville River, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. The regular camping rate is less than $20 per night and half of that if you have a Senior Passport (Golden Age Pass). The campground sites have paved parking and roads throughout the campground are paved with several sites that can handle RVs larger than the Ollie.


This camping trip gave us the opportunity to use the Ollie on-board systems for the first time without a water and electricity connection. Also tried out a 100W suitcase solar panel system connected to the 7 pin trailer connection. It's not the most efficient way to use this solar system, but had plenty of 12V power to run everything need after the sun went down every night. Only one way to say it, the Ollie is very pleasant to camp in! :)

Bill, great pictures. Looks like an interesting and economical place to camp! Mike


Mike and Carol, Thanks!


Linville Falls is about a 2 hour drive from home, fine area to camp and ride motorcycles.


We're heading to Mt. Pisgah on the Blue Ridge Parkway later this month or next month. It's

5,000 feet above sea level and high temps in the 70s when it's hot & humid in the lower elevations.

Same campground cost as Linville Falls.

Make sure you have breakfast at the Mt Pisgah Inn across the road from the campground. The morning layered views of the mountains are amazing. Truly. The restaurant has floor to ceiling glass, and there's a porch outside with rocking chairs to while away a few more minutes with the view.


About 11, the sun moves around and the views diminish. We've eaten dinner there, and the view was a disappointment in the evening, compared to the spectacular morning views.


Oh, and the menu is good, too, and reasonable for the view.




Edit: I saw you'd posted about camping at Pisgah before, so you probably have already seen the amazing views. I'll leave the post for others. It's just so great... we take all our Asheville visitors to see it.
