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!
Now open for the season!
Standard/Interagency & Senior
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!
Full reopening on April 15!
