Welcome to Grandfather Campground
Attention spring campers!
At this time, we are open for our full time/long term residents only. March 26th our county, Watauga, issued a mandate that states all short term rentals (less than 30 days) in Hotels, Motels, Campgrounds, Bed and Breakfasts, Inns, Air b/b's etc. are prohibited during our county's state of emergency. At this time, we do not have an end date for this mandate. Avery county, next door, has the same ordinance with a potential, but subject to change, end date of April 18. Our recommendation for now is to stay home, stay safe, and try us again in a few weeks. Thank you for your understanding and patience in these times.
Welcome to another season of camping at Grandfather Campground! We are open here all year, so come and visit during the summer and the ski season. We have 30 and 50 amp full hookup sites, tent sites, and several types of cabin rentals. We are located close to Grandfather Mountain, Blowing Rock, Boone, and Banner Elk. For a complete calendar of events, check out our Tourist Development website at https://highcountryhost.com/home
Please be advised as of November 1, 2019 we will no longer be offering individual cable hookups on hook up sites. We will be expanding the broadband and wifi for increased streaming services. We are unsure at this time if it will have any effect on campers that have their own services through Spectrum/Charter. More info will be available by the end of August 2019 for our longer-term campers.
We know the weather can be unpredictable in the mountains, but our local forecaster is the best around. check out http://booneweather.com/Forecast/Foscoe for an accurate weather forecast!
We have lots of wildlife in our area! You may encounter some while you are out fishing or hiking, so it's best to know about the area and what to do if you encounter native animals. https://www.ncwildlife.org/ has lots of useful info about our beautiful area and its creatures, including fishing info.
We are open 7 days a week in the office. Our summer season hours (May through October) are Monday - Thursday 9am - 7:00pm, except on Wednesdays, when we close at 5:30. Friday - Saturday 9:00am - 10:00pm, Sunday 9:00am - 3:00pm. Our winter season hours (November through April) are Monday - Thursday 10:00am - 5:00pm, Friday 9:00am - 8:00pm, Saturday 10:00am - 5:00pm and Sunday 9:00am - 2:00pm. We will be having shortened office hours for Thanksgiving and Christmas, so if you are coming during those times, make sure you call to see what the hours will be. Winter is coming, so be sure to book your ski vacation in advance! We have cabins and RV sites open now, as well as the tent sites for any of you brave winter campers, so be sure to call us at 1-800-788-2582 ASAP for reservations!
We'll see you soon, and we hope you enjoy your stay in our beautiful mountains!
