Trailside camping at its best! As you sit peacefully by the campfire, the crystal-clear water of the Middle Saluda River rushes by, and the constant sound of the rapids serenades you throughout the night. All 20 campsites require a short hike from a few hundred feet to over 0.5 mile to reach, but the riverside location is worth the effort. Since you must hike in to reach the campsites, the park asks that you check in at least 2 hours before dark, so you can get settled in your campsite before nightfall.
