Default campsite

i live in the Upstate and i'm looking for a place to camp that requires a bit of a trek to get to the site (at least 1 mile) and thus pretty secluded.

also near a river would be nice, but it's hard to find secluded spots around bodies of water.

any help would be appreciated. thanks, friends.

They have quite a few campsites- you can 'reserve' one that is 1+ miles in. I know there's a waterfall along the trail, so there's definitely water around.

Default Re: campsite

worth the drive, but Shining Rock Wilderness is the shit! 1.5 hrs from Greenville, many choices of spots for to put up a tent once you get there:

Black Balsam - scenic but a bit too open if youre looking for secluded
Sam Knob - about a 2 mile hike, very scenic and secluded
Shining Rock - about 10 miles round trip
Cold Mtn. - 15ish round trip depending on where you hike from

all are accessible from the 420 (that's right ;D) mile marker off the Blue Ridge Pkwy - I absolutely LOVE that area and have camped many times around there, feel free to PM me if you want anymore details, I envy you, have been for a camp in several years

This is a nice trip, we would canoe across the lake once a year with scouts and camp. Then we would canoe around to the water falls.

Been here before on a weekend backpacking trip. Lot of fun, we went to the top of the gap and back down. Lot of climbing wooden ladders going down cliffs.

Linville Gorge in Pisgah, no doubt.

The hike down into the gorge is fairly challenging and plenty of primitive camping along the river.

Great area, easily one of my favorites. Hiking from Graveyard fields to Shining Rock is a nice trip as well. Easy to make a big loop. Same from CDB.
