Stony Fork Creek RV Park

Stony Fork Creek RV Park in Candler, North Carolina
We visited this park on October 28, 2013, and stayed for 7 day(s).

This is a small…no, very small RV park. It only has 6 sites total! All have 50amp/sewer/water connections. The sites are fairly level but the one way driveway through the park is rough…go slow. Real slow.

Each site backs up to a creek which is the border to National Forest property.

Television reception is limited to just a handful of channels but they come in clear.

Cell/data coverage is fair to weak. (US Cellular and Verizon)

Internet access is provided via the park wifi, but it is weak. The park’s owner is looking into ways to improve it because it is the common complaint he hears from guests.

There are NO Bathrooms or Showers! You must bring your own.

Hwy 151 is a lightly traveled roadway, so it is fairly quiet during the day and not much on it at night. Beyond the RV Park the highway winds its way up through the National Forest intersecting with the Blue Ridge Parkway approximately four miles away. This section of road is not suitable for RVs or cars or truck towing a TT or 5er! TOO STEEP and TOO TIGHT OF TURNS!

Hwy 151 leading from Candler to the campground is nice, with the last mile or so narrowing but still suitable for big rigs. If you are not comfortable driving narrow roads with little or no shoulder, then you may want to rethink staying at this park, but we found it acceptable since the distance of narrow road was so short.

If you miss the entrance, which is clearly marked both exit and entrance you can turn around at the next intersection (backing required) or slightly past that intersection is a pull off on the left for an old roadside rest area. Both options are tight, but these are your only options!

The park’s owner Dan informed me that he just received approval to add another four sites to the park which he plans on doing during the summer of 2014.
