Just a few miles off the Blue Ridge Parkway on sneaky-snaky Hwy 276 W., Henry and Dee Harstfield have created the perfect weekend escape for two wheels. 828-235-8350

Nestled next to the Pigeon River, this two-wheeled vehicles only resort is picturesque, clean and well maintained.  There is a restaurant on site, a camp store (with ice and toothpaste), two shower per gender bath house, laundry, what more could you need?

Camping is delightful on flat land carpeted with perfectly manicured grass.  Picnic tables abound but no fires other than the central campfire next to the restaurant.  If sleeping in a tent isn't your preference, there are plenty of cabins available with bed linens and towels included (10 new ones added in 1998).

To the right of the road into the camp ground, before crossing the bridge, there is a fairly new parking area with a ramp for loading/unloading bikes.  This picture displays the bridge and the sign for the parking area which is to the right (not shown).  So if you must trailer or bring a support vehicle...

Arrive at Blue Ridge Camp and you won't need to leave except to explore the wonderful curvy roads.    One of our favorite loops from the campground is 276 W. to 215 S., cross the Parkway to 64 N., through Brevard to meet up with 276 W. again.   Another fun ride is to follow Hwy 209 out of Canton to Hot Springs.  Have lunch and return.  Of course Deals Gap is close by...
