Sitting in the shadow of Mt. Mitchell, Black Mountain and Briar Bottom are a mecca for anyone who enjoys the solitude and peace of the great outdoors!
Time spent at Black Mountain and Briar Bottom campgrounds is time well spent! Located on the South Toe River, campers have a perfect place for swimming, tubing and fly fishing. Take in the incredible scenery of the Southern Appalachians by hiking the Hemlock Nature trail, or take a 5.7 mile hike to the top of Mount Mitchell State Park, the highest peak in North Carolina at 6,684 feet. We’re only an hour from Asheville, NC and only a few hours from Charlotte and Atlanta, GA. Camping in NC can make the perfect weekend getaway or family vacation! Check out Carolina Hemlocks Campground right down the road for more camping options with FIND Outdoors!
While getting “out there” and getting your hands dirty, make sure to do your part to recreate responsibly. Take a minute to visit our FIND forest friends and learn how!
Breathe in that mountain air!
