Most of the units in the park are semipermanent. They are well maintained and we felt secure in the park. The interior roads are wide enough for easy ingress/egress. The water and power worked great. There is no cable or working wifi. We stay in parks due to location (very convenient to Hendersonville downtown square) and security. Owner lives in SFR on property and is very helpful and available. Would stay there again. - Mullie09

Spaces are a bit too close together, but neighbors are nice and so is the staff. - HoosierRV

Nearly all filled with seasonals. Spaces very close together. No 50 amp. Wi-Fi works well at our site right next to the bath house. Location is on a moderately busy two-lane road. Fair off-air TV. Lots of trees so satellite could be a problem. Plenty of grass for the dogs. Would look for another campground if in the area again. - johns3

Stayed 4 nights. The manager, was so helpful! The park is mostly seasonals and sites are small. Ask for site 95-99. They are pull-throughs and down a hill from most of the others. The park and restroom/showers are older, but very clean. Very close to everything. Loved our stay at Apple Valley. - Mehalw

This park is mostly residents with a few transient spots. We stayed here the sat night before the 4th of July as we were driving through to Myrtle Beach. The boys loved the pool table and we were fortunate enough to be staying the night of their 4th of July potluck. I really enjoyed this. We got there a bit late to cook anything, but brought chips per the advice at the desk. The lady I spoke with could not have been more friendly. She called me a week or so before we were coming to confirm our reservation, then called the day of to see what time we would be there since they were having the potluck. For us, it was a perfect stop since it was close to the interstate. - Kadavis08

This is an older park with a lot of permanent residences, but very quiet. Probably not good for larger rigs, ours is 34' and took up the entire spot. Lots of trees for shade with gravel spots and paved roads. The people are very helpful and nice. Laundry on site. Also an area for walking your dog. - esta34950

This is our second stay. We stayed for a week in June and a week in October. It is small, but very well maintained. It is also in a shaded, quiet area. The hosts have been very helpful and accommodating. We will definitely be back. - Gary Sheila

Half the sites are nice, fresh gravel and level. The other half (6) are old and far from level. Two in our group of 5 had thier front wheels off the ground. To put it mildly, the campground hosts are horrible. Do it my way or leave. 3 in our group arrived at 2:30 and had to wait until 3 even though thier sites were empty and the hosts were there. Get the picture. - sesicsailr

Check in is a little odd in that you have to go into the private 5th wheel RV of the on site host (I assume that's what she was). While checking in you have to block the only road in and out of the park so nobody can enter or leave until you are finished. On the other hand you can't leave if someone else is checking in. We had to wait almost 30 minutes on our departure. Check in process took way more time than it should. Hosts/owners act like you're just getting in the way. Low hanging branches will scrape your roof. Interior roads are very rutted. Most sites appear to be long term residents. Our site (7) was about 2-3 feet off level from the back to the front. Utilities were good and properly located. Be sure to follow the directions they send and don't rely on GPS. Bring lots of blocks to go under your jacks. Our front tires were 10" off the ground to get level front to back. There are much better parks in the area and I would never return to this park. - travler27

Small rv park amid 40 acres of permanent residents. As a rule, that is all I would need to hear before looking elsewhere. However, this is a very clean, neat park. About a dozen asphalt pull-thru sites for transients with many permanently parked rvs and manufactured homes surrounding. Hosts are friendly and helpful. Connections are unusual in that two rigs occupy the same site back to back but sites are long enough that we were at opposite ends withour neighbors w/o interfering with each other. Will be back. - Bojangles

This is a retirement village with 12 pull through spots for short term RV use. The park is very clean, quiet and well maintained. It has some scenic views of the surrounding countryside and a large grassy dog walking area. The entry exit road is somewhat tight due to a median, but very doable. The overall impression of the park probably depends on the size of your rig, length of stay and how busy the RV section is during your stay.
We were in a 40 foot 5th wheel and were parked next to another unit of equal size. Two units share one pad and are placed side-by-side in opposite directions. There was essentially zero walking clearance between our unit and the unit to our left, as the utility pedestal blocked the way. There was no more than a couple of feet between our units with slides out. Our unit opened to a grass strip with approx. 12 feet between us and the other unit, but the doors of each unit face each other, greatly reducing privacy. There are small concrete patios for sites that face the grass.
If you stay a day or two, the lack of space would probably not be an issue. Had the spaces been designed differently, the spaces could be more private. Also, smaller rigs will probably find the spaces less confining. If the spaces were not so tight we could have gone with a five star rating. - William1977

The entrance looks a little small at first but we had plenty of room to get in and out between the two stone pillars. Our pull through site was narrow but very long giving us amply room for our 40 foot motorhome, and Ford F-150 pick-up truck AND our Harley Trike with room left over. The power, water pressure and sewer worked great. We would stay here again if in the area. Park is very well maintained. We didn't spend a lot of time in the park since we were there to ride our Trike on the Blue Ridge Parkway. - D&K

The owners live on-site and are very friendly & helpful. This is a very small park (25 sites, all-back-ins) with mostly 30 amp service and mature trees on each lot. There are a few sites with 50 amp. Each lot has a nice patio. The interior road of the campground dead ends at the end of the street. There is no where to turn around. We have a 40' fifth-wheel. We were assured they could fit us onto a site without a problem. The site they put us on had two large trees (one had to be trimmed) at the front of the lot. The only way to get on our lot was by pulling into the lot in front of us (thankfully, it was empty) and jockeying it back in. The lot in front of us also had two large trees at the front of it's lot. It took us 40 minutes to get into our spot. We've parked in many tight places before, so we know how to do it. This park is not a place for kids; there's no playground or anything for them to do. Dogs need to be walked in the front of the campground, along the main road. There is no laundry on-site, bathrooms are small, wi-fi is intermittent. This is a hard one for me to rate; the owners were so kind and helpful to us. For us it was poor. However, if you have a smaller rig, no dogs or kids it would be a average place to stay. Our neighbors did not have a problem getting their 35' rig on their lot. This park is not big-rig friendly. It's a quiet and pretty park. It just did not fit our needs. If we were to return, we would utilize a 30-amp site. They seem to have more maneuvering room. - oldbluejay

Stayed one night on the way to Florida in late March. The restrooms were still winterized, so I can't comment on them. They said they usually don't open them until mid-April due to threat of frost. The park is very small, and most of the sites seemed to be occupied by seasonal patrons. Only way to turn the rig around was by using the site itself. Very friendly and helpful owners that live on site. We had to reserve our site by mailing a check for payment in full, so that seemed a little old fashioned. It fit our needs perfectly, since we had family that lived only a mile from the park, and the full hookups allowed us to un-winterize the rig on the way south. Close to the interstate, but far enough away where traffic noise was non-existent. - HabaneroMike

Stayed in a cabin and it was clean, very nice and the owners were very helpful in events occurring in the surrounding areas. Easy check-in and very good location and price. - Lazyhill

Called the number and recording stated there was plenty of room, so come to park and find your site. Went as directed after finding no entry sign, we soon determined that it wasn't a place we could stay as after inspecting four electric posts and finding no 30amp receptacle that wasn't broken and no water spigot without moss. Sites are somewhat graveled and are pull thrus but utilities were not good, which was frustrating. - RJourney

Very quiet and easy to get to from interstate.Most sites are pull thru and water,electricity and sewer at each site. Gravel sites and interior roadways. No cable but plenty good OTA channels. They offer an Escapees discount but I didn't know that at the time. Wifi is available but we did not use it.
Great stop over on I-26. We will definitely stay here again. - jeffs

An honor system park. We needed a place for overnight. Close to I-26. Only about 1/4 filled. Looks like mostly long termers. Very quiet and clean. They have a large room for groups. Somewhat level if you are shorter rv. In a 40' mh we didn't even try to level. Good tv antenna reception. We would stay here again for overnight. Don't know it they offer any discounts as we never say anyone. - burtonsbuggy

Possibly the cleanest, most well maintained commercial park we've stayed at. Rate based on monthly rate not including electric. Great staff, friendly residents. Back-in site fairly easy to maneuver. Decent wifi, satellite reception improved after the beautiful leaves fell. Sites close together and became quite muddy during the rain. Great dog walking paths, pet area was a mud pit during most of our stay. Several long term residents, mobiles, and tiny homes. Very clean park not far from hwy and charming Historic Hendersonville. Would stay again. - lovinretirement

We stayed at this park last year and paid $45 with our Good Sam discount. To our surprise this year's rate was increased to $66 and with our labeled 10% Good Sam discount we paid $60. The folks here are no doubt mathematically challenged since a correct discount would have reduced the rate to $59.40. The site we stayed in is labeled a 'Premium Site', which consists of a gravel site, cement pad, picnic table, WiFi, cable, and overhanging trees that would not accommodate our satellite dish. These amenities are offered at most parks as 'Standard'. The cable was functional but the channel selections are of questionable interest to most campers. The cable package must be the lowest fee available since there was no HGTV, HLN, CNN or FOX News and the quality was poor. If you like the shopping channels, there are four listed. If you like religious feeds, you've come to the right place. If you enjoy watching the cable electronic transmission data there are three channels that you can become fixated on. The prices for an overnight stay in this facility are totally out of line for what's offered. The good news is that the park is clean and quiet.Don't camp here in the rain. Our patio flooded with three inches of standing water, which made getting in and out of the RV challenging to stay dry. The lower part of the park where we stayed is in a 100 year flood plain so I'm happy we only had a half inch of rain to contend with. The staff is friendly but they need to get in an RV and tour the country to see what other parks are offering as an equivalent at a substantially lower rate. - Don & Jean G.

Older park appears to have many permanent residents. The best thing I can say is that the staff is very friendly. We called ahead to confirm they could handle a 45 ft with toad and were assured it would be no problem. The site could handle it but their roads are not big rig friendly. Would not bring in anything longer than 40 ft and recommend dropping your toad. - David and Debbie

We were told we didn't need reservations to stay. That should have told me something along with no campground reviews. It looks like a run down trailer park, very old and run down. The spot we were taken to had a tree half way out in the drive so I would have to jackknife trailer into the space. The web site only shows pictures of pool and game room. There is a reason for this. We were glad we didn't leave a deposit so we did a drive through and left. We would not recommend to anyone. Woodall rated 3/2 I think that was generous. WE DID NOT STAY. - jman
May 2009 - $30.00
We stayed here for a few months while our house was being finished. It is a low-end trailer park with mostly permanent residents and about ten pull-throughs near the road for overnighters. The website uses the word "pristine" but maintenance is sorely lacking. The only good thing I can say is the restrooms were nice. The laundry room was definitely not. The advertised Wi-Fi was no longer being maintained when we left and was not available. The trees in the park are poorly positioned, not kept trimmed back and are difficult for big rigs to clear. Pets are allowed but, in general residents do not pick up after their animals. As a quick stop with easy on-and-off the interstate it may be passable but if you're looking for a nice place to base for a vacation, go to the nearby Lakewood RV Resort instead. - Horizons28

We had a very good stay here. On our arrival, our escort took my husband on the golf cart to view our site so they could discuss the best way for him to get our motorhome parked. She did this because she said the spot could be kind of tricky to get into. We felt that the staff escort went above and beyond her job to make us feel comfortable getting parked. My husband really appreciated her efforts. The only negative thing I can say is that I had an envelope I needed mailed, and they would not take it, so I had to make a special trip to the post office. We have been full timing for 12 years, and this is the first time I have had this happen. - LeeAnn Magel

We stayed at Rutledge Lake RV Park in Fletcher NC during the 3rd week of October as part of a rally group. We purchased a premium site (5 nights) on the lake that was supposed to have full hook-ups including cable and wifi. When arriving, it was obvious that there were cable issues in the park. The site next to us had several splitters mounted on the post. We like to watch TV in the evening after returning from day hiking on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The cable at our site was un-watchable. The manager did not seem to care. She said "you have a premium site because you are on the lake and not because of the cable or wifi". She had a very poor attitude and was not customer friendly. The park did not have a knowledgeable maintenance person to try and address this issue. Everyone working at the park had only been there for a few weeks, so there has been a major turnover. Also, the park looks like it has not been maintained/updated for quite a long time. We would not stay here again mainly because of the less then friendly attitude of the management. - Bruce and Linda R

After check in we were guided to the site. Sites have a good layer of gravel with a concrete patio. Sites are level with a table and fire pit. FHUs and satellite friendly. Cell service is excellent, the tower is within sight at the top of the hill. Sites are very close, parking is tight. Laundry is clean and machines in very good condition. Campground is near most of the sights in Asheville. - Nautilus

This is a shabby RV/ Cabin park in a beautiful location. It is between Hickory Nut Gorge / Fairview and Chimney Rock/ Lake Lure. Nothing was truly wrong, but nothing was outstanding. The washers/ driers were only $1 each, but there was only Two sets for a large park. The bathhouse has muddy floors by afternoon and was conveniently located up a steep hill. The creek was lovely, but only the people with creekside sites could access it. - WNC Traveler
Jul 2016 - $38.00
We chose this location because it was close to friends in Fletcher. The campground is small and there are cabins for rent as well. It is older, but the sites were nice - we were right along the stream and enjoyed listening to the water rushing at night.
The camp store was convenient and none of the items were marked up like most camp stores. We bought firewood and some items that we forgot to store in the camper. The staff was friendly.
The campground could get noisy during the day, especially Saturday and Sunday, because it is located right off of Hwy 74A, which is a favorite ride for many motorcycle enthusiasts. We were gone most of the day, so it didn't bother us, and it goes away at dusk.
The kids enjoyed the creek and the campground pool. This place is nothing fancy, but it's a great jumping off point to get to Chimney Rock or Asheville. We would recommend the park, but only if you get the creekside sites. The picnic tables were ok. The benches were very narrow, so we made the kids sit there...the table was good for a food table, but not for adults to eat at.
The road into the campground, Hwy 74A, can be a bit tricky to navigate, but if you are a seasoned camper and adept at pulling a trailer, it shouldn't be too bad. - bqpratt

Please be aware that the pictures for this campground on the internet are completely different that what you will see. The campground is very small and there are mostly cabins and very old ratty permanent campers here. There are very few sites for rvs. The stream is about 2 inches deep and fishing is not going to happen. The sewer hook ups for all the sites are at the front door of the next camper, so you will smell sewer gas the whole visit. There are also campsites in front of others on the creek, so this could lead to people getting blocked in. The campsites are just poorly laid out with very little room. There are just better options. We will not stay here again. For the price, there are just better options. The owners are very nice and they have taken over this campground for about a year. There is just too much work that still needs to be done. The sewer system is unacceptable. You've been warned. - 30-30man
