(800) 562-9015

Welcome to Appalachia! Come camp with us and enjoy the best of Blue Ridge Mountains camping! Our family-run Asheville West KOA offers great accommodations for everyone from tenters to RVers. Our tent sites are beautifully wooded, and our "Big Rig" friendly 50 and 30 amp pull-through sites are large, level, and have cable TV and FREE WI-FI! Don't have an RV, or tent camping is not for you? No problem! You can "rough it" in comfort, staying in one of our cozy cabins or lodges.

Relax with us and wake to the chirping of a variety of birds, you'll enjoy their song throughout the day. Enjoy scenic North Carolina hiking on our wonderful nature trail, easily accessed from any of our camp sites. You'll enjoy surrounding yourself in the beauty of trees, flowers and wildlife.

Children of all ages will love the pool, game room and our holiday activities. Our campground is not far from all the fun and excitement of white water rafting, gem mines, vineyards, the Biltmore House, Pisgah National Forest, Chimney Rock, and many other attractions. Plan on camping an extra day or two- there's so much to see and do!
