Flintlock Campground

Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains and only minutes away from downtown Boone, North Carolina, Flintlock Campground has all of the camping amenities for a wonderful family stay.  Whether you’re looking for tent camping near Boone, NC or plan on taking your RV, this place can accommodate you.  A refreshing mountainside stream runs through the park and we had a wonderfully relaxing weekend sitting by the stream listening to the rushing water!  The kids enjoyed getting in and wading in it and every so often a mischievous chipmunk would pop out seeing what we were up to!  The park also has a volleyball net and playground!

Cell Service:  Great

Public Rest Rooms:  Clean

The Good:  Everything was perfect.  We had a hard time pulling ourselves away from this campground to explore all of the fun things to do in the area including Grandfather Mountain, Tweetsie Railroad, Linville Caverns, Blowing Rock, and Boone.  We ventured a little farther away and rode the Virginia Creeper Trail, too!

The Bad:  Nothing.  This campground made our list of places to return to next year.

 

Things to Do near Flintlock Campground

Flintlock in only minutes from all of the action in Boone, NC.  It has gem mining within walking distance and is just a short drive to many mountain attractions including Grandfather Mountain, Tweetsie Railroad, Linville Caverns, and Blowing Rock.  If you’d like to take a day trip I’d suggest riding the Virginia Creeper Trial in Virginia!
