Mountain River Family Campground/Grandfather Mountain (2023)


We had a great time in the NC Mountains as we celebrated Katina's Birthday. We camped at Mountain River Family Campground, Newland, NC and loved it. We visited Grandfather Mountain and explored the well known Swinging Bridge at over 5200 ft.
Our Purpose: We love to camp and want to inspire others to get out and explore God's green earth. Use whatever you have and have fun! We always meet awesome people along the way and we would love to camp with you in the future.

Any of that for me, of course, I'm not even gonna.

Give you a hard time, because it's your birthday, okay, all right guys so katina's birthday is today and she wants me to sing happy birthday.

I can't sing so here's the best rendition happy birthday to you.

That is that was the rendition of what that is.

A happy birthday, happy birthday, happy birthday to you, okay, so I get to make a wish make your wish, make it good, yeah, great job.

You want to check out that game room.

I already have a playground for the kids, oh, but don't don't be tripping now I mean you know you can get it even though it's your birthday, but we all know how to connect four game went down last week.

We need to make talking, that's different, okay, oh nobody! Look! You stand up on a rock up there, now you're pushing it.

We had to prove it.

Did you gather something after this later appreciate it katina faced the fear of heights with grandfather, mountain, she did the swinging bridge and she took a picture on the rocks.

She still, I think you did good.

Thank you.

He finally gives me my props every video.

He runs me down.

Every video I give you your props, thank you.

You even went over the bridge.

The funny story is katina has a fear of heights and I don't like the mountains, so we're both have to deal with heights.

I don't like driving through the mountains, but she has me up in the mountains at grandfather, mountain and we're gonna look at some of the animals.

They have up here, they're.

Looking pretty good, you want one again, scared of it.

No, but I just like look at that thumb.

They're beautiful this.

Yes, so down there is where that bear is mildred the bear and the other big bear the male bear.

How about we go down and check them out? How about you go so that when you get mauled to death, I can tell them where you went and what you did.

How about that? I think we should just go ahead and just look at just go down there, real quick.

Can you see what the sign is saying? Look at science says: authorized personnel take a good photo.

No okay! You are authorized we're not authorized.

I'm authorized to walk back to the call on.

He was crazy.

I cannot believe you got me in these mountains.

It was so beautiful.

You may be glad it's your birthday because otherwise I don't think I don't think I'll be up here.

We have 62 full hookup sites and uh we have a bath house um.

We also have a little laundry room.

We have a lake in the middle of our campground that has fish for catch and release.

It's a lot of fun and we are located on the north toe river in avery, county and north tow river is full of trout.

Okay, we are a perfect location for trout fishing.

All right.

We open uh in april the first weekend in april each year with trout, season, okay and then we close at the end of october each year.

Okay, so do some people live here all the time where everybody leaves? No, everybody leaves it okay, the end of october, all right! Well, we have loved it.
