Help with Car Camping Spots in Pisgah Outside Brevard on 07/25/2011 07:36:15 MDT Print View


In early September (weekend after Labor Day) I'm going to be doing some car-camping/day hiking with a friend. I know that the area right outside Brevard in the Pisgah is a very popular location with all the falls (Looking Glass, etc.) but I'm wondering if anyone has any specific suggestions for good car-camping spots in that area. The caveat is that we won't be able to get there until well after dark (thinking like 11pm or so). So, can anyone help me identify a place I could go to find a car-camp for the night? If you can provide specifics (service road names/crossings) that would be awesome. Just looking for a place that we can set up base camp and explore the surrounding area and waterfalls from. I know that Davidson River Campground is right there but I'd like to avoid a 'campground' experience if possible. Any info. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading.
