Lake Powhatan Campground Professional Review and Guide
"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."
