Welcome to Back Yard Campground !
We offer a unique, peaceful, safe and secure environment for your tent camping experience.   Come and enjoy the Blue Ridge Mountains with us in "the Land of Waterfalls"!  We are located off Crab Creek Rd., 4 miles from Dupont State Forest, with miles of hiking and mountain biking trails, 9 miles from Brevard NC and Pisgah National Forest, and 14 miles from Historic Downtown Hendersonville, NC.  Relax and enjoy the beauty and fun from our
" Back Yard Campground"!

Enjoy our on-site amenities, including fire rings (firewood for sale on-site) and picnic tables.  Be assured the shower room and sheltered Porta Jon are kept clean and sanitary.  Pitch some Horseshoes by the garden!

Our gardens are always a work in progress, and indeed a labor of love.  If you grow weary of "Things to do" or "Places to see", just relax.  Our aim is to allow you to enjoy the beauty and peace we've found in our "Back Yard".
Sorry, we no longer have "Hot Diggity Dogs!" on-site food cart.

It was a great run!

Make Some Memories!
Some of my great memories from childhood, and then with my own children, are of camping.  Putting up a tent in the rain, looking up at the stars, warming up to the campfire; all these things and a hundred more go into Back Yard Campground.  And sure! I camped in my own back yard growing up.  Good stuff.  Come, bring the family, and make some memories.
We are not isolated in the wilderness, but our sites are peaceful and private, and we respect that as long as you respect the camp rules.  This is the Blue Ridge, and nature is never far off here.  As a matter of fact, it's only as far as your own back yard.  Close your eyes, hear the creek, feel the cool breeze.  We're not for everybody, but we could be just for you.
