Holly Flats Campground Professional Review and Guide
"If you place a high priority on barefoot tent camping, skip Holly Flats. True to its name, holly trees dot the cozy Holly Flats Campground, shedding their prickly leaves to decay on the woodland floor. But if you don’t mind wearing shoes while you camp, you’ll love this place. It offers a variety of sites in a remote atmosphere with plenty to do nearby. The Bald River Gorge Wilderness is just across the gravel road, and Waucheesi Mountain and Warriors Passage National Recreation Trail are close as well.Holly Flats has that old-time camp-ground ambience: the smell of wood smoke and hamburgers cooking; sun filtering through the trees; cool mornings and lazy afternoons. This timeworn feel stems from the simple fact that the campground is old. The campground is like an old pair of favorite shoes: it may be worn and have a few scuffmarks, but it sure is comfortable."
