Roan Mountain Rhododendron Festival and Hike

Join us for trip a to the Roan Mountain Rhododendron Festival and a moderate     ~ 5 mile hike to visit Rhododendron Gardens atop Roan Mountain!

On Saturday we will drive from Charlotte and check out the festival. The festival is held in Roan Mountain State Park, located at the foot of Roan Mountain and features handmade crafts, food, and a variety of traditional music, plus an array of old-time folkway demonstrations.

We will plan to stay the night camping a top Roan Mt.  This will be dependent on Weather and Space, an alternate locate will also be in the plans.

On Sunday we will be hiking the Rhododendron Gardens and returning home.

*Note - The days may get flip flopped depending on the crowd and the weather.

    I've camped there before and loved it, but be warned, the campground fills up fast early in the week of the festival and it's unlikely to find a number of spaces there for the weekend. You can do primitive camping up on the mtn.

      nm....I reread your post and it looks like you are planning on the primitive camping rather than the campground. So, no problems.

      Yeah I was thinking it was much easier to just camp on the mountain and come back to the car in the morning for breakfest before hiking.
