Pisgah National forest is an insanely beautiful chunk of North Carolina, that remains somewhat unknown, so you should get here while you can! The amount of trails, hikes, flowing waters, trout fishing, waterfalls, winding roads that follow meandering streams, (white squirrels?!) and all that other good timey nature stuff is unbelievable. Also has access to the Blue Ridge Parkway!

Be sure to check out the visitors center, and get a map of all the places you can go. See the wildlife education center where they do free programs and is also home to the state trout hatchery, which you can walk through and feed them. See the falls. Fish the rivers. Hike the hikes. Drive the roads.

We stayed a couple days at Davidson River Campground just inside the forest, and while it was a very nice setting, we were underwhelmed overall. You must stop at the guard shack, where they will assign you a campsite, you do not get to choose one. Sites are $22 per day ($11 with senior or access pass) plus $6 for electric, or $9 for electric and water. They advertise hot showers, which they are, for roughly 1 minute... don't let it run while you lather...
