Mount Pisgah’s spectacular views, hiking trails, camping and the Mount Pisgah Inn make this area a popular destination for visitors along the Blue Ridge Parkway.
The mountain and thousands of surrounding acres were originally purchased by industrialist George Washington Vanderbilt in the late 1800s while building the Biltmore Estate in Asheville. Vanderbilt used the property as a private hunting retreat for family and friends.
For generations, Pisgah has been a popular mountain retreat for travelers. The campground, located in Flat Laurel Gap, (milepost 408) is the highest, coolest, and most secluded on the Parkway. 70 tent and 70 RV sites and shower facilities are available.
The Pisgah Inn is conveniently right down the road with lodging, dining, and a campstore. The dining room serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. All of it’s facilities usually open in late March and operate through October. Visit pisgahinn.com or blueridgeparkway.org for more info, or call the Parkway at 828.298.0398.
