Overview

Overview

Located in a dense pine canopy, within hiking distance of Linville Gorge and along the famous Blue Ridge Parkway, Linville Falls Campground is an ideal location for your next family camping excursion.

Natural Features:

Linville Gorge is a vast designated Wilderness area that sits on 11,786 acres of rolling hills and thick forest. The gorge surrounds the Linville River, which is located some 1,400 feet below the ridge, creating a stunning canyon that has earned the nickname, "The Grand Canyon of North Carolina."

The Blue Ridge Parkway is a scenic byway with plenty of natural attractions and recreational opportunities for visitors. Aside from natural features, the parkway is also a cross-section of Appalachian mountain history. Stretching almost 500 miles along the crest of the Blue Ridge mountains through North Carolina and Virginia, it encompasses some of the oldest historical sites of both pre-historic and early European settlements.

The surrounding forest offers hemlock, white pine, oaks, hickory and birch trees, along with a colorful assortment of wildflowers in the spring and an epic array of orange and red shades of leaves in the autumn.

Recreation:

The Linville Falls area is a hiker's paradise, and the campground provides easy access to several trails that allow visitors to experience the stunning scenery and abundant wildlife.

Once at the gorge, visitors can hike more challenging trails down to the river, where fishing for trout is a popular pastime.

Linville Falls is another must-see, carrying water from the river over several layers of falls, ending in a spectacular 45-foot waterfall pouring into the sparkling riverbed below.

Campers are also likely to spot wildlife like bears, grouse, turkeys, owls or hawks during their stay.

Facilities:

The campground offers comfortable tent or RV camping, with the convenience of flush toilets and drinking water. Grills and picnic areas at each site create a perfect environment for family barbecues or late-night marshmallow roasting.

Nearby Attractions:

Linville Caverns, a privately maintained cave just south of Linville Falls, offers guided tours year-round.
