Mount Pisgah - MP 408.6

Mount Pisgah Campground has 70 tent and 70 RV sites and shower facilities are available. The campground is the highest, coolest and most secluded on the Parkway. The campground is located in Flat Laurel Gap. A granite rock base forms a bowl in this gap, so there is little run-off and the area remains wet creating the 85-acre Flat Laurel Gap Bog.

Reservations can be made for portions of this campground online at www.RECREATION.gov or by calling 1-877-444-6777.

For generations, Pisgah has been a popular mountain retreat for travelers. The Pisgah Inn is a modern facility which includes a balcony and private porches offering an incredible mountain-view of Pisgah National Forest. The dining room serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The Pisgah Inn and all its facilities usually open in late March and operate through October. For information call (828) 235-8228.

Area hikes include: Buck Spring, Mount Pisgah, Picnic Area Loop and Frying Pan Mountain Trails.
