Our campsites are just steps from the Tuckasegee River and campers have three easy access areas to the river.

Two “walkdown” river access areas are perfect for fishing, wading, kayaks, canoes and tubing. You can also enjoy the river from a large deck cantilevered over the water. It’s great for fishing or just watching the Tuckasegee flow by.

• Some covered tent sites

• Primitive tent camping NOT available
