Blue Ridge Parkway Weekend Trip Mile High Camp Ground 828-269-2945 Camping site

Destination: Weekend Trip Blue Ridge Parkway
Camping in Maggie Valley at the Mile High Campground
July 24TH-26TH, 
Campground web site http://www.campmilehigh.com
Very secluded yet has bathhouses with hot showers. (bring flip flops to wear in the shower, additional tips on items to bring will follow)
Being up on a ridge at 5,280 feet, you have great views. Sometimes you are looking down at clouds and up at blue sky.
Due to the high elevation, there is no ponds (standing water) and therefore no mosquitoes.  Campers gather for awesome sunsets.

We will ride at speeds within 5-10 mph of all posted speed limits.  Rest stops will be according to the comfort of all riders and passengers. We will probably take short 5-10 minutes rest stops for every 60-90 minutes of riding. But again this all depends on everyone’s comfort.

Riding and activity schedule: We already have three campsites that will hold 3-5 tents each the cost is $10 a night per person



10:00 am KSU – We will travel approximately 177 miles on our first day of riding.

Friday afternoon activity, after we set up camp, is open to voting,   Do we go for a quick afternoon ride, all weekend long at the campground the dutch oven club will be cooking.I also will be making a pot of something seen that I won in a raffle a brand new dutch oven from them this weekend so I am sort of committed to it and will enjoy doing it as well


How about a pot luck breakfast? I have several propane stoves that I can bring.

SAT.

10:30 am KSU – We will travel approximately 100 miles on the twisty Blue Ridge Parkway before we loop back to Maggie Valley. Again, depending on votes, we can spend most of the evening in Maggie Valley or head back to the camp to see another sunset and enjoy a camp fire.

    • Mark U.

      The ride up is just over 3 hours, if you are focused on making time. It's not really that far.

  • wayne

    Hey Ya'll, thought I was going to have to work Saturday but now I found out that I don't. I would like to join you all if anyone doesn't mind me sharing their campsite. Will be happy to share the cost as well. I am guessing that they allow up to two tents per site?

    July 21

    • dave r.

      wayne they will let 5 tent per site if will fit

      July 22

    • March

      Wayne what time are you leaving Saturday?

      July 22

  • Said

    Anyone who need some gear hauled up there, please have it at Daves shop tomorrow (Wednesday) so I can take it up with me Thursday.

    Note: I’ll be sleeping in the van so some items may end up in the open trailer. Therefore please double bag items in heavy duty bags. Even if I place your bedding items in the driver and passenger area, the bags will keep your items clean. Thanks.

    • March
