Lake Powhatan is the finest in Asheville camping and is close to all the action of downtown! Located only 10 minutes from Asheville, North Carolina, this is the perfect spot to base your vacation. The campground borders the 6,000-acre Bent Creek Experimental Forest, a haven for mountain bikers, and is close to the French Broad River. The swimming lake and beach will give you a way to cool off in the heat of the summer, and for those who like to be out-and-about, the NC Arboretum and Blue Ridge Parkway are only a few miles from the entrance to the campground. Looking for camping in Asheville, NC? Nearby campgrounds in the area include North Mills River and Davidson River.
