Surrounded by miles of mountain bike trails, and mere minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, Lake Powhatan Campground is every cyclist’s dream. With bike-in/bike-out access to the famous Bent Creek trail system, this place rivals North Carolina’s own mountain bike mecca: Tsali. If biking isn’t your thing, the campground is built around Lake Powhatan, which has a designated swimming area, a fishing pier, and a small man-made waterfall. If that’s not enough to entice you, the North Carolina Arboretum lies right around the bend, and the cultural offerings of downtown Asheville are just minutes away.
