Terrible campground with cracked pavement, undeveloped sites at such a steep slope it scraped the back of our trailer and bike rack. NO WiFi contrary to their printed brochure. Staff was not helpful no very friendly. Skip this place. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I saw in Good Sam book this was rated a high 9 or 10. Definitely not. It is one of a couple in the area so maybe that is the attraction? Walked into the bathrooms under the office - really not impressed. Totally inadequate trash. Had 2 small bins. AT 3:PM they were mostly full by morning trash is stacked up along side of it. 2 small bins trash and 2 bins recycle. The big issue was trailer space and parking. We were on the main row past the office. It was tight but doable when parking my rig. However in order to stay there everyone needs to park in front of the rig. So that means on each side of the street everyone is parking out front. So it is difficult to pull your rig out. My neighbor got up at 6:00AM to move his vehicle so I could get out. Then he could get out. Sandwiched between two major freeways. Kids running around at night at night with no lights nearly hitting trucks parked on the road. Would never stay here again. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park has multiple hazards! We damage our MH before we got parked. The pull through sites are way too narrow. You cannot pull a Class A 34 foot MH without pulling onto the site next to yours and working you way into your site. The boulders they have out by the electrical will damage your unit. The boulder in 6A did a thousand dollars of damage to our new MH. No excuse for any park to have hazards like these. After reading these reviews I see we aren't the only ones who damage their unit. I will never stay there again. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed for 3 nights. We were greeted nonchalantly. First thing we noticed was the pool was empty and appeared to have been for some time, their response was "sorry". No one gave an explanation though the website says the have a working pool. Most sites you can not use your awning as there are trees in the middle of the pad. Small sites and are tricky getting in and out if there is already campers set up. Watched many people have to ask other campers for cars to be moved to get in a site. View from left side of road is Gorgeous, right side is a hill backing up to highway with wiring netting to hold in place. The deck on club house had not been touched. Covered in piles of leaves, needed power washed and tables were filthy. Our trip was not very enjoyable in the park though the area was wonderful.

I would not recommend this campground for more than an overnight stay. We are in a pull through site and the main highway is only a few feet from us with no barrier between. Also the pull through sites are not in the same area as the rest of the campground. We had to drive up a narrow hill so I did see the campground and campers are very close to one another. On a high note, we are very close to the interstate and are on our way to SC for the rest of the week. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Our site was level but backing into some of these sites can be a problem because of the sharp incline from the road to the site, I saw a couple of motorhomes drag their backend on the incline while backing in, this could be a problem with some longer wheel based mh, this park is for the most part big rig friendly...our services worked great and our site was long enough for the toad also....cell service ATT was good but their WIFI was ok until the park got full then it was non existent, their cable was good with lots of channels...the restrooms and showers were clean with lots of hot water, did not use laundry but it was clean and all machines appeared to be in working order....no ground fires are allowed, City ordinance, but you can use your fire pit if u have one like us.....the other main problem with this park is there is no where to hook up your toad when leaving, there is a short strip while leaving the park but you could be blocking outgoing campers and it's on a down hill slope which sometimes can be a problem....this park is close to everything including the Biltmore which is about 5 miles from the park, easy access from interstate....staff was friendly, but with all the choices to camp at in Asheville I would look somewhere else the next time, but I would return here if I had too....there can be a lot of traffic noise from the interstate that can/could be a problem for some of us...

Our site was difficult to get into without scraping our motor home on the asphalt. The site was all mud, no grass. Sites are extremely tight with our slide 6 feet from the RV next to us. Our outdoor chairs felt like they were in the neighbors living room. The picnic table was broken and filthy with sap. The office does not send email confirmations nor give receipts for payments. There are no hook up lanes thus often there are lines of RV's waiting to hook up on the narrow one way road out, tying up traffic for a long time. Even cars cannot get by. There is a lot of traffic noise from I-40. Don't waste your time or money at this campground. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

I called and emailed to make a reservation, with no response to either. Finally, when it was time to park the RV, we decided just to see if there were any available spots. Office was empty, prior to 6:00pm, but there was an after hours board, so I went ahead and completed the form (and was honest about an extra person, so paid an extra $3 for the night). The spot was a pull through, but very tight, very close. Only one picnic table for every two spots (and ours was damaged). RIGHT on a busy road, headlights and traffic all night. In the morning, we left as early as we could since a car broke down during the night and was parked in front of us and our neighbor. At least we could back out of our pull through spot. Not sure what the neighbor did, as theirs was a back in spot. Pool was not clean. Didn't allow kids to swim even after walking up there. Needs attention... For the price we paid, we would have done better to stay a little further away. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Spots pretty tight, but location to local attractions more than makes up for it. Once backed in, site was more than adequate. Friendly staff. Great stay. Thank you. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Must advise all who read this, of an outstanding company we used while at the campgrounds. "It's all in the Finish" is an RV detailing company. The husband and wife team worked diligently, over a period of 2 days and did an extraordinary job washing and waxing (Teflon) our 9 year old motorhome. We couldn't have been happier with the results. Worth every penny.

It depends what you are looking for as to how you will view this campground. It is on a narrow twisty road. If you have pull thru you would register and leave the camp to drive around again to get to your site. Pull thrus back up to the highway behind your rig and the main road in front of your rig. Back ins are on a narrow road up the hill once you have registered. This is not a problem if the campground is not full and everyone has not parked on the road. Most have to park cars/trucks across front of site. Some sites back in going up small hill. You can see marks in pavement where vehicles/trailers have bottomed out at the hitch. Did not use bathrooms, showers, or laundry. The location is great. Close to Biltmore, Bent Creek for mountain bikers, and close to Brevard, about 20 minute drive. May not be the best RV park but would return due to location. Once you get situated it is all good! Some sites have BIG holes in asphalt in where levelers have sunk in due to asphalt being so soft during summer months. Appears they have not tried to fill the holes. Over time this will be very problematic. As a result you have to be careful where you place your rig on the site. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We arrived after 5 pm so office was closed. Park was very crowded and sites were carved out of every available flat area, as well as private residences and apartments. Our pull-through site was only a few feet from a busy road. Site was narrow and difficult to park due to tree and utility post. Decided that we could not put out slides so took an empty 30 amp spot that was wide enough for our slides. Restrooms were smallest that I have seen outside of a B motorhome: needed to keep elbow in when using stall or sink. Just not a comfortable situation. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

We hadn't stopped here in several years, and it looks like no upgrades have taken place. After maneuvering winding road, you must turn into the campground on a sharp curve, then up a hill in front of office. Sites are all back-in up on the hill with uneven pads to get up on. All hookups are at the back. You must back up as far as you can, anyway, to get your tow off the narrow road. Clubhouse looks ancient, with old chairs in need of replacement or paint. Very little maintenance anywhere. No place to walk the dog, but we found a dog park two miles away. WiFi is good and location of park is good.

A park that is hard to get to, older and not being maintained, and has enough of a waiting list that the office help is downright nasty. Showers/bath are clean, but watch out for the light timer; it's set for maybe 7 minutes and there's no warning; lights out as you have shampoo in your eyes! Two pull-through sites are impossible for motor homes with toads, but they'll put you in them despite asking for better sites. The concrete is cracked; deep ruts where coaches have had to go off the pavement just to get onto the pad. The worst part is Stink Bugs!! They infest the trees and get into your coach and it takes a year for them to all finally die. Bear Creek doesn't seem to do anything about them, because they started 2 years ago and got worse. If you want to go to Biltmore, then put up with their poor management, but use Google for Hendersonville or Flat Rock if you want level, clean sites with nice office staff. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Very close to your neighbors. Concrete pads. Barely room to park your vehicle. There's a picnic table but didn't use it because I felt I was eating next to my neighbors bedroom. We backed up to a beautiful view. Close to town. There's deluxe sites that are wider cost more. Office staff OK. We camped at Asheville's Bear Creek RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
