In the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, experience a big variety of glamping options near waterfalls, hiking, whitewater rafting, ziplining, biking, fishing and swimming in Pisgah and Nantahala National Forests. You’ll also be a short drive away from Asheville, Biltmore, Blue Ridge Parkway and our western NC small towns.
Most glamping sites include the basics: weatherproof shelter, chairs, fire ring and picnic table. Stay in tents on platforms, yurts and more. Inside, find comfortable beds - often with sheets and towels. Not all glampsites are created equal, so amenities vary greatly. While some glamping communities offer resort-like packages, others keep it simple.
Blue Ridge Mountain Glamping Tips
Here are some tips to help you plan:
- Confirm the amenities offered at your glampsite including water, electric and bathroom facilities. Are linens included?
- Ask for a list of suggested things to bring (like flashlights, firewood & matches, cooler, cooking supplies, etc)
- Ask your host about nearby grocery stores, restaurants and things to do.
- Make reservations well in advance, especially on summer weekends and the fall.
- Some glamping sites have room for an extra tent or sleeping bags for additional guests or family members.
