My family has been camping at Davidson River for over 30 years. It is our favorite by far.

The camp sites are very large. Even on the smaller ones you have plenty of room. All are level.

The bath houses are small and dated, but very clean and well kept. They include flush toilets and hot showers.

The campground uses volunteers to run check-in and the gate. They also act as campground host for each loop. We have found them to be friendly and very helpful.
Quiet hours are strictly enforced.

There are electrical hook ups but they are very limited and are taken quickly. If electric hook up is required, you may want to consider another campground.

About half of the sites are first come first serve and the others can be reserved. Last time we were there only 4 sites with electric hook ups could be reserved. If you plan to arrive on a Friday from May through Oct. Iíd come only if I had a reservation. You can usually get a site if you come in Monday thru Thursday, except during holidays, especially the week of the July 4th. Also leaf season (mid Oct.) is a very busy time.

There is no pool but there is a great swimming hole in Davidson River, which runs beside the campground. It is a nice cool, some would say cold, mountain stream. The river is stocked weekly with trout. You will need NC fishing license and Trout Stamp.

There is no formal playground; there is a large field to play in, in addition to the river, woods, hiking trails etc. Kids can always find something to do. Without satellite service you canít get a TV signal. There is very poor cell phone reception and no Wi-Fi. That makes it the perfect get away from it all campground. If you just have to connect to the web there are several hot spots in Brevard, which is just few miles away.

This campground is located in the Pisgah Forest but is only a few minutes from shopping areas.
