You'll have to go way up into the Appalachian Mountain Range if you're looking to find Mount Pisgah. This cool and often foggy area of the state provides beautiful forests, waterfalls, and, on clear days, spectacular views. Those that visit in the fall months will also get to experience the changing of the seasons, which is exceptionally breathtaking from this mountain.
The facilities here are made up of 125 campsites for $20 per night, over half of which are first-come, first-served. Campsites have their own picnic table, and fire ring and accessible drinking water can be found scattered throughout the grounds. No hookups of any kind are offered here, but wifi is available at the property. Black bears do frequent the area, so bear boxes are provided at every lot where you can store food, toiletries, and anything else that might attract one of these large predators.
Once here, most people spend their days exploring the mountain. Many hiking trails catering to all different skill levels can be reached from this campground, so grab your pooch and head out into the woods! The park often has guided walks or other interpretive programs for campers to learn about the nature that surrounds them. Come night time, stargazing is a big draw here as the higher elevation makes it that much easier to enjoy the celestial display above.
Your doggo is welcome to stay with you here and, though the leash rules are unclear, we recommend that you bring one along just in case -- and that you keep your woofer at your side at all times! Not only is this respectful to the other campers, but it will protect your canine from having an altercation with the other creatures that roam these woods. Remember to clean up after your furry friend throughout your visit to help ensure that dogs stay welcome here for many seasons to come.
For those looking to get away to North Carolina's mountain range, Mount Pisgah Campground definitely won't disappoint!
