Bear Creek/Asheville

If you're trying to find the closest campground to The Biltmore Estate, then Bear Creek is where you need to be. It's 5.4 miles from the Biltmore and right off the highway. For anyone who is concerned about highway noise, then please know this campground was a little noisy. I didn't find it extremely noisy throughout the night, but there were a few truckers in the early hours that blew their horn.

Our rv at the time was 38 feet long, so we opted for a pull through site. The office doesn't allow for sites to be reserved, but we arrived early enough to snag site 4B which was perfect. Our site was paved, included a picnic table, but didn't include a campfire ring.In my opinion, all of the sites on the upper side (sites 1-10) were large enough for long rigs, or rigs with slides on both sides. Here's a site map that includes a list of their amenities and info.

Here's our set up. There was ample space all around us. The campgrounds are clean, they offer full hookups and wifi/cable.

Asheville is a favorite of ours, it's super pet friendly and there is a lot to see and do. We camped with friends on this visit and had a great time exploring breweries (Wicked Weed and Hi-Wire were a couple of our favorites). I also recommend trying Duck Tacos because who doesn't love a good taco?!

There's plenty of walking in Asheville and the downtown scene is trendy. There are a lot of shops (we had to pick up a magnet for our rv fridge), candy shops, clothing boutiques, more breweries and lots of great eateries. This is such a dog friendly town, many of the shops had water bowls placed outside so pets can have a drink. We didn't visit the Biltmore on this trip.

Challenges if you're pulling an rv is the amount of traffic on roads leading to the Biltmore. There's a lot of stop lights and if you have a long rig, it can be a bit of a challenge navigating around. I recommend heading to the campground first using I40, 74 or I26 then once you're set up (assuming you're not driving a motorhome) head to downtown Asheville or areas around the Biltmore.

Our next trip will include the Biltmore. We've been in the past, but we want to go again soon.
