Get ready to summit (by car) the highest peak in the US East of the Mississippi with Pack 108’s April campout. We have secured 7 campsites at Black Mountain Campground to accommodate 14 families. Due to the popularity of this area, campsites were limited so this campout will be closed when we reach capacity. If you want to join us, please don’t wait- signup Now! We are at campsites: 32, 33, 31, 20, 21, 22, 23. Campsites will be shared by 2 families so if you want to be paired with a veteran camper or a specific family, please let me know on the form below.
Our campsite, Black Mountain Campground sits in the shadow of Mt. Mitchell, the highest peak in the eastern U.S. and borders the South Toe River. Black Mountain is a mecca for the outdoor enthusiast. The campsites are equipped with picnic tables, tent pads, lantern posts and campfire rings with grills. The facility provides hot showers and restrooms with flush toilets. Campers can purchase firewood, ice, tee shirts and souvenirs.
The campground sits at an elevation of 3,040 feet. The 6,684-foot Mt. Mitchell towers over the area, with several other high peaks of the Black Mountains nearby. This lush Appalachian Forest is rich with wildlife, plants and scenery. With the South Toe River located adjacent to the campground, visitors will have no shortage of things to do, including picnicking, day hiking, scenic driving and trout fishing. Hikers will be pleased with a variety of trails from which to choose, including a leisurely half-mile walk through the forest or a challenging 5.6-mile hike to Mt. Mitchell. There is a restaurant at Mount Mitchell State Park (30 min drive), but families should plan to cook all meals at the campsites.
