    Davidson River Campground (LINK)
    June 24-28

    @BradB picked the spot, and the date. Thank you.

    A really nice spot in the mountains of North Carolina. Hammock friendly campsites, too.
    Close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Art Loeb Trail, Cradle of Forestry, and other nice spots.
    Near the town of Brevard, and Hendersonville is not far away.
    Less than an hours drive from Asheville, south, and east of the Pisgah National Forest.

    This would be a good place to add ideas or suggestions, as well as any other comments.

    Dupont State Forest has some really nice waterfalls. It is a very small park 8 to 10 miles South East of Davidson River Campground. If you go there, don't plan on being in the car long.

    Nice site @snwcmpr. Big site too. Is that their normal site size, or is it a double?

    Nice! I am packed and ready to go in the morning. We have a double site for my small trailer caravan and my daughter's popup. Staying till Wednesday.
