Welcome to Grandfather Campground
We are currently open!
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. If you plan to visit us in the winter months (December to March) we highly recommend four wheel drive vehicles and keep an eye on the weather forecasts for snow and ice. We also have freezing weather procedures for water usage, details on the policies/rules on the rates page of this site.
During peak seasons we have a heavy influx of calls, so please be patient if trying to get through. If you call and we cannot answer, please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as we can. When you call for reservations, or shoot us an email, we do need specific dates or a specific site you are interested in, as our system will not allow us to check "first available." Also, we have a new rain-check policy! Check it out under the rates page in the cancellations and refunds section. If you have one, you will definitely want to check it out. :)
Please be advised as of November 1, 2019 we will no longer be offering individual cable hookups on hook up sites. We do have wifi available on the grounds. If you are a long term resident, please contact the office for other options.
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.
