With 125 RV sites and six tent sites, Creekwood Farm RV Park offers plenty of room for you and your dog to set up camp for a few nights. Located in a tranquil, leafy setting about 40 minutes west of Asheville, North Carolina, this pretty park offers a beautiful creek-front setting as well as its own off-leash dog area.
The clear waters of Jonathan Creek flow steadily through the park, and as you'd expect, the 30-odd sites overlooking the creek are the pick of the bunch. Though you'll pay extra for one of these sites, it's worth it if you want easy creek access or just love being near the water.
Pull-through and off-creek sites are also provided, but those in the center of the park aren't quite as private as those around the fringes. All RV sites offer full hookups (including 30- or 50-amp service), cable TV, and Wi-Fi.
Sites are well-spaced and there's plenty of shade around, and most visitors are quick to comment on just how clean the campground is. Happily, this praise extends to the restrooms, which are similarly well-maintained.
But the best part of all is that pets are welcome in Creekwood Farm RV Park. They'll need to be kept on a leash of five feet or less when outside your RV, but there's a decent-sized fenced area where you can take your pooch for some off-leash fun and games. Dogs are also allowed to take a dip in the creek — just cross the foot bridge located near site 46 to find the pet-friendly swimming area.
As always, you'll need to clean up after your pet and ensure that they don't make excessive noise. Plus, you should be aware that there's a three-pet limit per site. Two fully-equipped cabins are also available for rent in the park but do not permit dogs, and dogs are also not allowed in the rec hall, office, bathhouse, laundry, or picnic area.
Winter rates (November through March) are $25 for a tent site, $38 for off-creek and pull-through sites, $44 for a creek site and $50 for a premium creek site. From April 1 until September 30, nightly rates are $30 for a tent site, $47 for off-creek and pull-through sites, $56 for a creek site and $87 for a premium creek site.
There's plenty of fun to be had swimming and fishing in the creek, but if you want to explore further afield, you're within easy reach of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Nearby Waynesville offers shopping and a number of restaurants, so you shouldn't have any trouble finding things to see and do.
Creekwood Farm RV Park is a lovely spot for dog owners and their furry friends, so check it out if you ever get the chance. But if you're visiting during peak times and you want a creekside site, book ahead.
