Camping in Brevard NC

Several of us have rented a house in the Brevard area for a week (September 29- Oct 6) this fall. Some people had expressed an interest in camping for all or part of the same week in the same area. That way they could hike with the group on some days and have their own schedule when they wish. This Meetup is to give those interested in camping a communications forum to discuss any common plans they might have. The Davidson River Campground is a couple of miles from the rental house. The Mt. Pisgah Campground is on the Blue Ridge Parkway about 15 miles away. Each of them is a large campground with all the usual amenities (showers, power on some sites, others primitive).

    I'm able to be there from Sunday thru Wednesday. If you could give me the address of the House you are renting so I can meet you there and follow you to the hikes, I would appreciate it, and also the best time to be there. Thank you, Fran

    Yeah I hiked up from black mountain campgrounds parking lot. I think it's park of the pisqah park? If I did go I figured I might say hi to the group then head out for the hike.

    I will see if my hiking/climbing buddy wants to drive up to do Mt. Mitchell up there. Beautiful area and would love to go back soon.

      Hey Sig, I think Mt. Mitchell is out of range for this meetup.... but do I sense another crazy hiker who did the Black Mountain Crest Trail? I might want to do this again..... I recall the thornless blackberries over my head and very tough trail down to Bowlens Creek.....

    Basic equipment would include tent, groundcover, stove, light, clothing. Visit local outdoor store for more detailed info for your specific needs.

    In response to some of the comments. Day vs overnight is up to the camper. Most of house people will be day hikers. Lenny is correct regarding Mt. Pisgah. It will be cold and these are mountain roads. Contact campgrounds(find them on the web) for cost.

    Will there be day hikes or overnite hikes. I have photographed some of the area and some multiday hikes would be cool.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
