FAQ’s










May I bring my own snacks and adult beverages?

Yes, but they’ll need to be stored in your car, not your cabin. Bears and other furry animals are not welcomed in the cabins and food attracts them. Ice is available in Eden Hall.










How close will parking be to my Cabin?

It depends on which cabin you’re assigned. In general, you will be directed to park at the lower soccer field (Cabins 1-22) or Lacrosse field (Cabins 23-44)










What do we need to bring with us?

Each family should bring their own linens and towels. Mountain nights are cool so make sure you have a blanket or sleeping bag. Pack enough clothes to last the duration of your stay. Feel free to bring your own fishing rod, tennis racket, discs, bikes, etc. Please bring your own Nalgene/water bottle so you can stay hydrated during the day. See Packing List.










Do the cabins have bathrooms?

In general, no. Most share a shower house with bathrooms, which are divided into male/female sections. Shower and toilet stalls are private. A portable camp toilet may be a good option for those staying in cabins.










Is there WIFI?

In many locations, yes! We have guest hot spots around camp for your convenience. Verizon has the best (and sometimes only) coverage here. 










Are restaurants and shops open in Asheville and Black Mountain?

Yes!










Can we bring our pets?

No, cabins and camp housing make hosting any and all pets difficult. Enjoy the time free of walks and feeding times!
