Steels Creek & Burnthouse Branch Waterfalls

... for a little while and got some pictures. We hoped for a bit of cloud cover to improve the lighting, but it never came, and soon we headed back up. At the stream crossing on the way back, we decided to just get wet, rather than trying to rock-hop back across, and then take a dip in the nice swimming hole. The water was a little cold, but refreshing on a hot and humid day. After drying off, we returned to the ...

Independence Weekend Trip to Gragg Prong

... parking area right as we pulled up. We got all our stuff and backpacked in about a half-mile along Lost Cove Trail (#262) following Gragg Prong downstream. The campsite was just off the trail and was a really beautiful little spot, just above the creek with a small cascade nearby. After getting our tent set up, we donned our daypacks and continued along the trail about a mile to the Upper Waterfall on Gragg Prong. Although we ...

Burnthouse Branch Falls Attempt

... earlier, we decided to finish up and start heading home. Once we got to cell reception area, I checked on a picture of Waterfall on Burnthouse Branch and sure enough, we had gotten the wrong waterfall. All that effort and we didn’t even get it. Well, I guess that means we’ll just have to come back. In Morganton, we had a late lunch/early dinner at Las Salsas, my favorite Mexican restaurant, and then headed home after a great holiday ...

More Waterfalls in Wilson Creek

... rhododendron blooming along the creek. We rock-hopped across the creek and headed down to the base on the trail. The water level was fairly high and the rocks were wet, so we couldn’t get too far out in the creek, but still managed to get some good photos from the base as well as a couple other points heading back up. We then rock-hopped back across and returned to the car, making our way back to the campground for the night.

    This campground is close to everything in Boone and runs along a beautiful stream that you can hear babbling as you sleep.

    There are 2 washing machines and 1 commercial dryer in the laundry room. The bath house (there's only 1) is clean and convenient. There is a store at the registration desk that sells ice, drinks, and candy. That's about it....no camping gear, extra supplies, etc.

    There is internet that is pretty good, but seems a little weak in the evening when everyone wants on.

    Each site has a metal trashcan with a lid which they come by and empty each morning (and also replace the liner then). That was a nice feature... not having to worry about trash.

    There are pull throughs for the big rigs (and there are many here) and those have concrete pads. The ones on the stream have crushed gravel to back on, but this wasn't a problem for us.

    The scenery is beautiful and the staff is friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

    nice, small, quiet campground. It's right off a busy highway but we were by a creek which drowned out the noise of the highway so you didn't even feel like the highway was there. Bathrooms clean but nothing to write home about. Our cabin was very nice.

    What a nice and relaxing place to stay. Hearing the creek babbling away when you wake is music to my ears. Good value and good people.
