We arrived at Mt. Pisgah campground on 9/22/22 and to our great surprise and pleasure met Hokieman & Mrs. Hokieman, owners of hull 797. We own hull 997. It is always great to be at Mt. Pisgah, and even more so since we’ve made new friends.

Mt. Pisgah and the southern end of the Blue Ridge Parkway is a gorgeous area with some of the highest elevations. The Smoky Mtn Expressway is also a really pretty drive. My wife and I rode our dual sport motorcycles from the Smoky Mtn Expressway all the way to Front Royal, Va several years ago. It was a memorable week long fun adventure trip.
We live in the foothills of Western NC and have spent time at Mt Pisgah. So glad you enjoyed the beautiful vistas of the BRP…it’s a national treasure for sure. Check out Mtn Mitchell and Grandfather Mtn as well for some incredible views. 

We love living in the western NC. 🇺🇸

We know that view well, and it's simply amazing!

Like @Patriot, we feel blessed to even be part-time residents of WNC.  (Our camping property is 40 minutes away.)

If you are still there, tell Mr and Mrs H hi from us.

And have a blast. I'm sad we can't be there this week. Which way are you headed from there? Not too far down the parkway, probably 35 minutes, the visitors center near east asheville/Fairview (53a off 40, don't remember the parkway milepost number, but drops down to us A74) is beautiful and interesting,  as is the folk craft museum nearby. Great short film about the creation of the parkway, and interesting exhibits.

And, should you need anything, once you drop down onto A74/240, you're close to Walmart, home depot, Lowe's,  kohl's, aldi,  Petsmart, Highland Brewing,  etc.  You'd never know it on the peaceful and amazingly beautiful  BRP.

Thanks to all for comments & recommendations! We have been regulars at this campground for approximately 30 years, and for the many reasons you’ve listed, it never gets old! We’ll be back at Pisgah again in about a month…and will be back as soon as they open again in May 2023!

We enjoy camping at Mt Pisgah, too. Doubt if we will be camping there for the rest of this year, but will head back next May! Hopefully will meet other Ollie campers there next May!

Met another fine Ollie owner there earlier this summer!
