As a full-time traveler, I have been to many different parks and have had good and bad experiences with management and facilities. This park has been such a great find! The owner, has gone above and beyond to help me settle in to my year-long work assignment in the area and I have never had to second guess if choosing this park was the right decision. As mentioned in the other reviews, you must be self-contained as there are no facilities here but the well water is amazingly clean and there is great water pressure. Most of the traffic running by the park is local or motorcyclists out for a scenic ride in the area, hardly noticeable. There are lots on both sides of the road so as mentioned DO slow down when close. The GPS was very accurate but it will take you to a house about 200 yards in front of the turn, so if you miss it; turning around in a larger rig will be tough. If coming from Candler and staying in lots 7-10, there is a long, brown fence immediately before the turn-in on the right. If in lots 1-6, you will see the trailers and the EXIT to the sites on your left BEFORE you see the ENTRANCE sign ahead. Suburban propane has been amazing and will come out to this location to install a tank if staying long enough to need it, with auto refill services available. The sites are gravel, level enough to just need a few adjustments. There are picnic tables at each site with 30amp,50 amp hook-ups. The grounds are maintained well with a few trees, more on the creekside, that offer some shade. There are several county parks in the Candler area with playgrounds and nature trails so not having these facilities at the site has not been an issue. I do not have dogs, but others in the park do and have never had issues, no unwanted visitors either. So far, it is very peaceful. The owner has been one of the nicest people I have met in my travels and I highly recommend this park, whether for a day or a year as he will go out of his way to make you feel welcomed!! We camped at Stony Fork Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Candler has a laundromat and grocery stores as well as a few banks. Easy access into Asheville (about 20-25 mins away) as well as Blue Ridge parkway.
