Pisgah National Forest, North Carolina

This enchanted forest is known as the Land of the Waterfalls. It encompasses 500,000 acres of the Appalachian Mountains just outside of Asheville, North Carolina. Mile-high peaks offer majestic views and campers can enjoy rock climbing, backpacking, and fishing.

Camping is allowed anywhere on National Forest property, except within 500′ of a road or in a designated closed area. Good campsites can be found along many trails in the area, especially those in the South Mills River section, for possible backpacking loops.
