Overview

Mount Pisgah Campground is perched in the rolling mountains of western North Carolina along the famous Blue Ridge Parkway.

Natural Features:

Mount Pisgah is part of the Appalachian Mountain Range, an area of the country with scenery that never disappoints, whether blanketed in wildflowers in the spring or a bursting with orange, yellow and red hues in the fall.

The Blue Ridge Parkway is a scenic byway that follows the high crests of the central and southern Appalachians for 469 miles from Shenandoah National Park in Virginia to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina.

At an elevation of 4,980 feet, Mount Pisgah offers moderate to cool temperatures during camping seasons.

Recreation:

Several popular hiking trails, ranging from moderate to difficult, are easily accessible from the campground. A trail leading to the summit of Mount Pisgah starts at the campground and climbs for nearly two miles to an observation deck, where visitors can look out over the expanse of wilderness below.

Also nearby is the Buck Spring Trailhead, which leads visitors through the thick hardwood forest and along rocky terrain, offering a bit more difficult trek for more experienced hikers.

Facilities:

Both RV and tent-sites are available at this roomy campground. Modern amenities like flush toilets, drinking water and a country store create a comfortable camping experience. Standard sites come with picnic tables and fire rings, perfect for barbecues and marshmallow roasting.

Nearby Attractions:

The beautiful Pisgah Inn is located adjacent to the campground and offers a restaurant, country store and laundromat.

Additionally, historic Asheville, North Carolina is about 20 miles away, offering grocery stores, fuel and medical facilities.
