North Carolina Mountain Camping Near Bryson City and Cherokee
Are you looking for the perfect, quiet and secluded Smoky Mountain camping experience? A beautiful wooded setting beside a rushing mountain stream, and a stocked pond where you can catch trout to cook for dinner? Then, Kirkland Creek Campground is for you.
At a cool, 2,300-foot elevation, our campground is nestled in a grove of tall pine trees beside the sparkling Kirkland Creek. We’re off the beaten path, yet just minutes from all the great activities surrounding Bryson City and Cherokee, including the Nantahala Gorge, Deep Creek and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
We’re one of the few Bryson City campgrounds that give you plenty of activities right on the grounds, including a swimming pool, trout pond, playground and community campfire.
You’ll enjoy Kirkland Creek’s family friendly environment. Year after year, campers come back to catch up with old friends and meet new ones. Try us once, and we’ll become your favorite Bryson City campground, too.
Planning a family reunion? We have all the different kinds of campsites you may need — tent sites, RV and pop-up hookups — even cabins. A Smoky Mountain camping experience to suit everyone.
