Carolina Hemlocks Campground
For generations, people have come to Carolina Hemlocks Recreation Area to soar off the rock platform and plunge into the cool South Toe River. Carolina Hemlocks Campground has 2 different loops with a total of 36 sites for tents and RVs (no hookups available for RVs). Each site includes a table, fire ring with cooking grill, and lantern post. There’s also a picnic area with a group pavilion that holds up to 30 people.
The campground is located at 8512 Hwy 80 South in southern Yancey County at an elevation of 2,900 feet. There’s a small camp store onsite that rents tubes, and there are 2 other community stores nearby that sell snacks and camp supplies. Coin-operated showers. Open April thru October.
