Outdoor shower at our campsite in Poplar Loop.

Located right on the Davidson River at the entrance of Pisgah National Forest Ranger District in Brevard. Situated in Transylvania County (known as the “Land of the Water Falls”), this campground is a 15 minute drive from Brevard, 45 minutes from Asheville or 30 minutes from Hendersonville. Weather permitting you can ride your bike on the Greenway to and from downtown Brevard. The Greenway passes Oscar Blues Brewery and Taproom, where you’ll also find a food truck. In Brevard, you’ll also find Ecusta Brewing Co, Brevard Brewing and Upcountry Brewing.

This area is a mountain biking hub. If you don’t have a bike, rent one from Sycamore Cycles, a five-minute drive from the campground (Sycamore also features a very good coffee shop). The area is also popular for fly fishing, hiking and climbing. Access to the southern terminus of the 30-mile-plus Art Loeb trail (hike all the way to Cold Mountain) and many other great hikes. 

Open year round. Hot showers, electric hook ups and a dump station. 

 Use of generators is prohibited in Poplar Loop. So it will be quieter if you don’t need to run the generator.

Cell reception at the gate house entrance.
