The place is pretty, and easy to get to in Fletcher, just south of Asheville. The hookups work well, with good cable and WiFi. However, DO NOT make reservations on their website. It is a 3rd party vendor, and it overcharges, and does not offer any discounts. Call them on the phone, instead, and verify what you will be charged. When asked for a correction, they do not want to fix it. We are still disputing our charges.
Made reservations on phone for three nights. I asked about pull-thoughs for our 36ft MH and was told there was a real nice wooded site (not a pull through) in the back so I said i would take it. I believe it was site 83 or 84. When we arrived, they handed us a card for site 84 and then took it back and said they needed it for a LARGER MH. The person then handed us a new site. The site they gave us was a DUMP. We were clearly between two permanent residents who were utility workers appearing to be temporarily in the area. Our MH wheels are about a foot in the air since being leveled. I need a step ladder to climb in. We are next to a permanent looking trailer with a bunch of crap stuck under it to hold it up somewhat level. BY THE WAY IT IS 8PM AND THERE IS NO ONE IN THE LOVELY WOODED SITE WE WERE TALKED INTO TAKING WHEN I RESERVED. WAY TO TO GO TO RUIN OUR LONG WEEKEND IN ASHEVILLE.
We've stayed here 3 times and the park has gone way down hill. The roads are in disrepair, there were gravel piles around that caused loose gravel to be a hazard to pedestrians and bikers, street lights were out, washers and dryers were either out of order or didn't work well, etc. very overpriced for what you get. Many people there had larger, aggressive dogs that they didn't clean up after. Really disappointing because it used to be a nice park.
The park is not close, but convenient via interstate to Biltmore, NC Arboretum, Farmers' Market and downtown Asheville. Sites are close to each other, but road ways are wide. No trouble to back in; some pull thru sites. All roads and site pads are gravel. Some permanent residents. Calling this a resort is a stretch, but it was quiet and the staff was nice and helpful.
I have stayed at Rutledge Lake Park many times and always feel welcome. The facility is very clean, accommodating to families with children and/or pets and is central to so many Asheville area attractions. I have been there twice already this year and plan to go again in the fall.
This place is CRAMPED. You cannot back in a trailer much over 20 feet long and you are piled on top of each other like cord wood. Don't let the pictures fool you, these are of the 3 or 4 best sites they have and not an indication of all the sites,
The sites are not separated as shown on the park map but basically pull thru sites you share with another camper, so enjoy sitting out and looking at the back of another camper. Oh, and the heated pool not, nor or the cable ready sites. Do not be be fooled, those negative reviews are there for a reason.
Quaint, rustic park. Good for relaxing. Don't go for the ammenites. Store is small and only sold nick-nacks. Feels like you are in the country, but is actually only 2 miles from everything. Best thing about this park is the location.
I would not recommend this campground. It is not so much a campground as it is a trailer park. There are too many run down dirty campers here. They claim to have WiFi, but it is so poor it's more trouble than it's worth. The sites are too small & close together. There is dog feces EVERYWHERE. They also claim to sell propane, but again, don't expect there to always be someone available. You may have to wait a day or two. I paid way too much for what I got.
We also read some online reviews that were pretty negative, but we liked this park. We had a back-in site by the lake/pond. My wife and I are full timers with a 33' fifth wheel and spend a minimum of two days at an RV Park, but because this park was 20 minutes from Asheville, NC we booked 8 nights here. Friendly staff (and handled our package from USPS), level gravel sites, spacious sites, nice office/store, lovely lake/pond, excellent games room (pool table was a bit rough, but it was free). Our only complaint is that two of the washers were out of order, and based on online reviews, this has been a frequent issue.
Great place, quiet, secure, friendly staff. Great facilities. I had read some other reviews online that were not favorable, but they were wrong. Another camper recommended this place to me, I gave it a try and was glad I did.
