2011 Camper Comments

To date the best place we have camped on the coast is Hilton Head Harbor. To date the best place we have camped in the mountains is “Mountain Stream”. We will be back. We enjoyed the Thanksgiving lunch with the other campers and neighbors. “Mountain Stream” is highly recommended by us. Thanks. (26′ 5th Wheel 11/24 – 11/27)
Dwayne & Hilda Reese Lincolnton, GA Site 10 11/27/2011
What a wonderful experience this was for our family! This was a perfect weekend getaway and was very relaxing to sit by the stream and listen to the water. We usually go to the beach, but I think we may head to the mountains more often. I would love to visit in the summertime. We will be back! Thanks for the hospitality! (38′ Motorhome 11/11 – 11/13)
Bengy, Lisa & Seth Sigmon Concord, NC Site 16 11/13/2011
Lovely site – small, clean & tidy with very welcoming host. Lovely restrooms. Can imagine it will look more beautiful in summer with flowers & trees (now Nov 2011). Would recommend. (19′ Class C 11/07 – 11/08)

Boy & Gorda & Morrison Morste, Netherlands Site 09 11/02/2011
We have been camping here for 4 years. We were extremely pleased on the first visit, but upgrades have continued to be made that just keep making our stays more enjoyable. There is not a bad site here. The combination of the stream around this small, extremely well laid out campground and its location along the NC mountains makes it the perfect home base. It truly is “The Prettiest Little Park This side of Heaven.” (30′ Travel Trailer 10/17 – 10/24)
Charles & Carolyn & Morrison Littleton, NC Site 08 10/24/2011
When we leave from home, there is no doubt that this is our second home! We love your backyard & appreciate you both so much. May you both continue to do well. Until next time :). God Bless! (32′ Travel Trailer 10/20 – 10/23)
Scott & Tracy Efird & “Katie” Locust, NC Site 06 10/23/2011
Challenging ride up narrow mtn road – but, at the end one of the prettiest parks ever. I love rivers and streams and theirs babbles all day and nite. Well arranged and spotless. Ron was very helpful. Unfortunately, they struggle to provide reliable wifi because of location but are upfront about that. TV (all 16 channels) was very clear. Would definitely come again. I travel in a 24 ft motor home. (24′ Class C 10/18 – 10/20)
Darla Anderson Lacoochee, FL Site 13 10/20/2011
Excellent! A very enjoyable stay. Ron & Becky are obviously committed to ensuring this is a great campground. We plan to return to the area & will hope to stay here again. Should be Campground of the Year! (24′ Travel Trailer 10/13 – 10/20)
Charles & Terry Andrews Prince Frederick, MD Site 17 10/20/2011
Another great time at Mountain Stream looking at the fall colors & with friends. Grandkids loved playing in the stream with friends Macon & Madeline Kluttz and we all enjoyed the chili cook off with Becky Kluttz now known as the Chili Bean Queen. (34′ 5th Wheel 10/14 – 10/16)
Derby & Linda Holshouser Salisbury, NC Site 09 10/16/2011

We have been here many times & always enjoy our visit. This is a beautiful RV park, well maintained & very friendly. Management always there to help.

From the moment we pulled in we knew! Courteous! They helped us park! Beautiful campground! Every spot is meticulous from the level parking to the grass in the yards!

Dean Amaden Plant City, FL Site 10 09/27/2011
Best park we’ve ever been to for just relaxing. The place is immaculate. It was amazing how you trained those 5 wild turkeys to walk through and rake leaves. Dog walk area a plus. VERY QUIET. We’ll be back . . . often. (33′ Travel Trailer 09/19 – 09/24)
Andy & Bonnie Osborne Mazeppa, NC Site 16 09/24/2011
Mountain Stream RV Park truly lives up to its web site. We were able to spend hours on our deck reading and relaxing to the sound of the stream. Saturday night pot luck dinners & good music were the perfect way to end the week. We’re looking forward to coming back. (31′ Class C 08/22 – 09/21)
Peter & Grace Zyla Dunn, NC Site 15 09/20/2011
Another great time at Mountain Stream. The weenie roast and singing Saturday night was wonderful. The weather was cool, so we had a campfire day & night. I loved sitting outside and reading by the campfire. What a GREAT PLACE to come and just relax. Will be back soon. Thanks for a GREAT TIME. (30′ 5th Wheel 09/16 – 09/19)
Jim & Becky Allen Mocksville, NC Site 01 09/19/2011

Derby & Linda Holshouser Salisbury, NC Site 09 09/11/2011
Fairly new to the RV scene & the second time camping in the mountains. You folks definitely have a great campground, well maintained & very pretty. The stream sound is nice while relaxing over a good book or in the morning with a hot cup of coffee. It appears our week was rainy due to tropical storm Lee, but we still had a great time. We will plan to be back next year as we are booked for other areas the remainder of 2011. on & Becky, keep up the good work & may the Lord richly bless you. (30′ Motorhome 09/05 – 09/11)

Tom & Mary Miller Clover, SC Site 26 09/05/2011
This was our 3rd visit & we were again thoroughly pleased. The park is already nice, but the owners have made many improvements & upgrades, the nicest one for us being the pet park , especially with its inviting bench to sit on while my dog explored. The bathhouse is immaculate as is the entire park. Such a relaxing place to be! We’ll be back soon! (Pop-Up 08/28 – 08/30)
Mike & Paula Bostic Terrell, NC Site 24 08/30/2011
Your RV resort is one of the best that we have ever stayed. In the short time we stayed, we met very friendly and helpful people. We loved the Saturday night “covered dish” dinner and the entertainment. It is very evident that you both love and care for Mountain Stream RV Park from deep within your hearts. Hook-up and parking was achieved with great ease. The showers were phenomenal . . . great power and plenty of hot water. Thank you for a wonderful 2 days. WE’LL BE BACK!!! (35′ Motorhome 08/26 – 08/28)
Michael & Gail Teti North Easton, MA Site 02 08/28/2011
Wow, what a great campground! A true gem in the NC mountains. Having a perfectly level, clean & dry site with a private deck right on a stream is like heaven. Everything is so well maintained, with great attention to detail. Got in too late to catch the covered dish dinner, but the evening’s entertainment (Meaggan Cochran) was great. Would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone. Thanks for all you do! P.S. Sept with the door unlocked for the 1st time ever. Felt totally safe. (24′ Class C 08/20 – 08/21)
David & Diane Chapman Tallahassee, FL Site 19 08/21/2011
Love the pet walk area. Ron & Becky listen to the suggestions of the campers. When they take action, they do it first class. This is the best pet walk area we have ever seen. (40′ Motorhome 08/16 – 08/21)
Ron & Elaine Funderburk Mooresville, NC Site 13/20 08/21/2011
We truly did enjoy our stay at this beautiful campground. We enjoyed the joys of nature. We loved the music you provided for us during our stay. We enjoy the Sunday morning fellowship. It is still great to know that there are still God loving people. Again, thanks for your hospitality., We would recommend your campground to our family and friends. (35′ 5th Wheel 08/19 – 08/21)
Billy & Naomi Cummings Conway, SC Site 28 08/21/2011

Angel & Nancy Borrero Blacksburg, SC Site 16 08/14/2011
We’ve had a great weekend at Mt. Stream and hope to come here again. We were impressed by how well-kept everything is. The campsites are so well maintained & landscaped. The enclosed pet area is a very nice amenity too. Even though we had two nights of rain, the roads or sites never got muddy or soggy thanks to a deep layer of gravel. (30′ Motorhome 08/11 – 08/14)
Bill & Lavonne Pickens Greensboro, NC Site 25 08/14/2011
We fell in love with this place. We couldn’t get over how each site was so beautifully landscaped and yet different from each other. We had a chance to meet people walking around and at the ice cream social while also having privacy at our own terrace overlooking the stream. What a way to unwind and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation. (25′ Travel Trailer 08/12 – 08/14)
Joel & Renee Willard Spartanburg, SC Site 26 08/14/2011
First time camping & first time @ Mountain Stream. Very clean and pleasantly laid back place. Fellow campers friendly as well as the owners. We will definitely be back to Mountain Stream RV park and will recommend the park to family and friends. (28′ Travel Trailer 08/12 – 08/14)

Paul & Evelyn Andrews Concord, NC Site 02 08/13/2011
Site 13 is luscious, spacious, & #1 site! It was really great as we stayed 7 days. The entire park is maintained in pristine condition. The only suggestion: laundry room facilities would be a bonus! We will definitely be back! Resort like without the “fees”! Bonnie Blue loves the dog park! (26′ Travel Trailer 08/06 – 08/13)
Jesse & Cindi Greene Clover, SC Site 13 08/13/2011

David & Rhonda Huddle Napoleon, OH Site 10 08/08/2011
Just wanted to thank you for sharing your “yard” with us! Jerel and I were told of this beautiful RV park with every rock in place and they were true to their word! We are going to adopt a Hemlock on our next trip up. We love those trees! Will call for a site very soon. The worship service was truly a blessing and so glad we could attend. Have a great week! Life is good and God is great! (34′ 5th Wheel 08/04 – 08/07)

Jimmy & Deborah Summey Efland, NC Site 06 08/07/2011
We found this wonderful campground through it’s awesome website. Loved being able to click on each site for photos. When we arrived we were even more impressed. Beautiful campground with a wonderful family feel. The sounds of the creek were so restful! We will DEFINITELY be back. P.S. Covered dish supper and gospel music on Saturday night – what a treat! Friendly people and beautiful place! (30′ Travel Trailer 08/04 – 08/07)
Mark Holcomb & Sandra Brown Cleveland, NC Site 17 08/07/2011
Lovely campground and well taken care of. We love it here! We stayed on beautiful lot #30. The only problem with this lot was the sewer [connection] ran up the hill. (31′ Travel Trailer 08/05 – 08/07)
Russell & Suzanne Efird Locust, NC Site 30 08/07/2011
Lovely campground. Prettiest camping in this area. Gracious hosts. Ron and Becky are very nice and helpful. Quiet and very clean grounds. Wonderful facilities. Will be back , hopefully soon!!! Would and will recommend to everyone. P.S. don’t be dumb like me. Bring your fly rod. Ron stocks the creek. (25′ Travel Trailer 08/05 – 08/07)
Danny Jenkins Charlotte, NC Site 34 08/07/2011
This is our first time camping on the Blue Ridge Parkway and we could not have been more pleased with Mountain Stream RV Park. Each campsite was spotless and the landscaping was top notch. Our 5 year old son thoroughly enjoyed playing in the creek only feet from the campsite. We plan to highly recommend this park to our friends and can’t wait to return. Roll Tide! (32′ Travel Trailer 08/02 – 08/06)
Jon & Jen Paepcke Helena, AL Site 14 08/06/2011

Randy & Catherine Perrenoud Inman, SC Site 30 08/04/2011
We were really impressed with the cleanliness and layout of the entire park. We only spent one night as we were travelling, but we shall return for a longer stay. (37′ Motorhome 07/31 – 08/01)
Clement & Linda Richardson Jamestown, NC Site 11 08/01/2011
The park is lovely and we so appreciate the cable especially – wi-fi is great also! Lew says he wished you could add ESPN to your cable line up as we both missed the NASCAR Sprint race on Sunday but to have it added for other sports as well. We love the quiet beauty and intimacy of this RV park. We hope to come back in the fall. It’s our favorite place to RV! Thank you for all that you do. May God take care of you both! (31′ Travel Trailer 07/25 – 08/01)

Albert & Margie Burnett Summerville, SC Site 17 08/01/2011
Very nice park. Everything is neat 7 clean. Creek in back is very refreshing. Dog park is very handy. Please consider a few more lights in the dog park. Maybe some in the tree in the middle. Also consider getting the History channel. Thanks for a great park. We will come back. (40′ Motorhome 07/25 – 08/01)
Duane & Bonnie Kahle Wilmington, NC Site 25 08/01/2011
Best vacation in a long time. Peaceful & relaxing. Enjoyed our stay so much that we added an extra day…thanks Ron & Becky. Coming back in October for a long weekend…can’t wait. Prettiest park we have ever stayed in. Thank you Ron & Becky for sharing your home with us. (31′ 5th Wheel 07/23 – 07/31)

Brian & Margaret Moore Concord, NC Site 15 07/29/2011
We really enjoyed our time here. It was everything we were looking for; peaceful, relaxing and a beautiful place to escape from the world. Thank you. (31′ Class C 07/23 – 07/26)
Grayson & Reba Yoder Oak Island, NC Site 01 07/26/2011
Karen and I left camp early this morning and enjoyed our stay very much. Your campground is the cleanest that we have ever stayed in! The restrooms and showers are spotless. The camping spots are a little close together for my tastes, but were very comfortable. The picnic tables are very nice.

I doubt that we will return, however. The absence of cellular service is not good for either of us. I had an emergency this weekend involving the death of a lawman back home and had to ride to town in order to get cell service. That, and the slow internet service is a turnoff. I understand your concern about bandwidth use but I really think that locking out Facebook is overkill. All in all we had a very nice time. Your location is excellent for the rides we want to take. (21′ Travel Trailer 07/20 – 07/23)

Frank & Karen Huggins Cumming, GA Site 04 07/23/2011
Owner’s Comment: Cell phone service (or rather the lack of it) and restraints on Wi-Fi usage are the two main concerns we hear about from campers. This is important to some folks, so I’ll address them one more time.

First, we are in the mountains in the middle of the Pisgah National Forest. There is no cell phone service here and likely never will be. Not much we can do about it. The nearest place to get cell phone reception is at the bottom of the mountain (about 5 miles away). There is a phone in the park for campers to use (long distance calls require a phone card) and the park office phone is always available for emergency incoming or outgoing calls.

Second, the free Wi-Fi access that we provide comes in by satellite. There are usage limits with the satellite link, but this is the only means of internet access up here – DSL, cable or T1 lines are simply not available. We have the most generous bandwidth plan that Hughesnet offers to business customers. This is sufficient to provide internet connections for 30 – 50 users at average usage levels. Even on weekends when we are full, we don’t have more than 20 – 25 Wi-Fi users, so there is plenty of capacity. Even so, we still experience occasional system shutdowns (this is what happens when we exceed our usage limit). When this happens, no one (including the office) has internet access for 24 hours. This year these shutdowns were occurring more and more frequently. We were able to determine that most of the excessive usage was caused by people using Facebook. We had no choice but to block access to Facebook – and since we blocked it, there have been no more shutdowns.

We work very hard to provide folks with a clean, quiet, attractive place to come and relax. But we also try to provide whatever amenities we can like 50 amp service, Wi-Fi, and cable TV (we actually had to become a small cable company to do this). But there are some things we just have no control over. Those folks who just can’t live without cell service or Facebook for a few days probably should look for a campground that’s not in the mountains.

We’ve found Paradise! – Don’t tell anybody. We thoroughly enjoyed camping at Mt. Stream R. V. P. Such an immaculate, beautifully groomed park without any commercialism, just a very available office & basics store. We slept with our van back door open, lulled to sleep by the rushing shallow stream 15′ away from us. Rules are strictly enforced for the well being of all with appreciation for compliance. Dog park has a fake fire plug and owner bench in shade. We enjoyed playing in the creek and an attempt a fly fishing. What a way to escape the “triangle” heat wave! (21′ Class B 07/18 – 07/22)
Erich & Sonie Duhn Hillsborough, NC Site 10 07/22/2011
Absolutely beautiful gardens and grounds. What a pleasant surprise for an RV park. Not crowded or a “parking lot”. The stream is beautiful & sounds so pretty. What a lot of work you put into the grounds and everything is so clean. It was a pleasure to shower etc. Nice, nice place!! (Pop-Up 07/17 – 07/18)
Laurie Payne Bloomington, MN Site 38 07/18/2011
This is our second visit and just as nice as the first time. Ron was very helpful assisting us backing into our site. Sorry we missed the ice cream and covered dish dinner. The Gospel group was really very good and we enjoyed their singing. There are very few parks that still support a Christian environment. Thanks to Ron and Becky for supporting this and having a nice park. (40′ 5th Wheel 07/08 – 07/11)
Oliver & Mitchel Keadle Salley, SC Site 02 07/11/2011

Alan & Ellen Pauly Gaffney, SC Site 08 07/07/2011
Mountain Stream RV Park is #1 on my list of RV parks. I have been camping/RVing for over 30 years and this is one of the cleanest, most restful parks that I have ever stayed in. Ron & Becky are excellent hosts. Thanks, Jim. (38′ Motorhome 07/02 – 07/06)
Jim & Shirley Giffin Sumter, SC Site 08 07/06/2011
We came the 4th of July week to the best RV park around. Ron & Becky are the best. Love the Sat. night singing & Sunday morning worship. Can’t wait to come back. Also love the stream. Campground is always quiet. (26′ Travel Trailer & Pop-Up 07/02 – 07/06)
Harold & Donna Brantley Bailey, NC Site 09 07/06/2011
Charles & Patty Joyner Bailey, NC Site 10 07/06/2011
We have never stayed at a campground that is so clean. The bath house was immaculate! The grounds are gorgeous and so well kept – absolutely beautiful. Thank you for the ice cream social and the great Gospel music. Well worth the drive from Raleigh. Ron & Becky are the best! (26′ Travel Trailer 07/01 – 07/04)
Robert & Donna Jennings Holly Springs, NC Site 12 07/04/2011
This was our third consecutive 4th of July at Mountain Stream, each of which has been an enjoyable and memorable experience for our family. Each time the park is more beautiful, with new landscaping and other enhancements. The new dog walk was a great addition this year. While most campgrounds do well to just maintain, this one gets better each season. We appreciate the friendly and safe family atmosphere. We will definitely return. (Pop-Up 07/01 – 07/04)
Todd & Maureen Brooks Raleigh, NC Site 17 07/04/2011
We were very lucky to get to stay here in more than 1 way. We decided to take a last minute trip & called & it just so happened we got the very best site available (only because there was a cancellation). We had never been here & didn’t know what to expect. But we loved it!! Our kids had a blast playing in the creek & everyone was so welcoming. This campground is perfect for families that want some quiet family time. We felt safe letting our children play around the campground & that means a lot to us. Even our Great Dane Kassi had a great time! Thank you for letting us stay with you in your beautiful Little Campground. (31′ Travel Trailer 07/02 – 07/04)
Chris & Kristy Minton Wilkesboro, NC Site 38 07/04/2011
We love to come here. We tell everyone this is our favorite place to camp. We do not get to come as often as we would like. The part we like best is Saturday evening at the shelter with the food and Gospel music. We also enjoy the breakfast and church service. This way we don’t miss going to church when we go camping. (24′ Travel Trailer 07/01 – 07/03)
J.C. & Judy Johnson Lexington, NC Site 20 07/03/2011
Thanks for a peaceful and relaxing vacation. This is one of the best maintained and cleanest park we have ever stayed at. We can’t wait for our next trip. (Pop-Up 06/28 – 07/01)
Kirk & Karen Davidson Smithfield, NC Site 20 07/01/2011
You have a very neat & clean RV park. We really enjoyed our stay here. Saturday night was very nice with the pot luck supper and the gospel singing. Also the pet area was very nice. (34′ 5th Wheel 06/24 – 06/27)
Mack & Ann Dyer Hickory, NC Site 09 06/27/2011
Awesome sums up Mt. Stream in one word. The flowing stream along the beautiful, well kept and very clean campground makes you feel closer to heaven. Our stay of 8 days and 8 nights was fantastic. Ron and Becky are such fun, loving and caring people. They made our stay more enjoyable. Since it is a small campground we got to know our camping neighbors on first name basis. We hope to come back again soon. (36′ 5th Wheel 06/17 – 06/25)

Mountain Stream RV Park is a real gem hidden between the Parkway and Marion. The park is spotlessly clean and extremely well laid out. The sites are spacious, level, and very well manicured. Many creek-front sites have comfortable decks that provide a private viewing of Buck Creek. For RV’ers who want to visit some of the premier attractions on the Parkway like Mt. Mitchell, there is no better place to spend some time. Mountain Stream is one of the most pleasant places we’ve ever stayed. (23′ Travel Trailer 06/14 – 06/16)
Sam & Chris Ausband Lincolnton, NC Site 20 06/16/2011
Ron & Becky, you’ve never let us down with your great accommodations at this campsite. This is by far our favorite campground in all the southeast. It’s always clean and bathrooms super clean. Your prices are good too. We love the sound of the creek at night. We especially look forward to Saturday nights with the good Gospel singing. We try to recommend you to all camper friends. Thanks again & may God Bless you two always. (36′ 5th Wheel 06/11 – 06/15)

Our stay was wonderful. We really appreciate the beauty of the camp and it’s “family” feel. his is one of the best kept parks we have ever been in. We certainly plan on coming back. (32′ Motorhome 06/10 – 06/12)

We had a wonderful time at Mountain Stream. The RV Park is so clean and well kept. The owners were very courteous and invited us to a wonderful covered dish supper and a gospel band played afterwards. We will definitely be back. We also have 2 Chihuahuas and they enjoyed this park as much as we did. We have added this to our frequent parks to visit list. Thanks Ron & Becky. (24′ Class B 06/03 – 06/06)

Michael & Kathy Rey Murphy, NC Site 07 05/30/2011
Everything is very nice and well kept. Enjoyed our stay very much. Wished we could have used wi-fi more because have a pregnant daughter at home and a son-in-law in Afghanistan and worried and had to leave twice to go to town and check my messages. Other than that a perfect stay. (30′ Travel Trailer 05/27 – 05/30)
Bud & Melanie Roberts Mooresboro, NC Site 12 05/30/2011
Owner’s Comment: These folks had a couple of mobile devices that could connect to wireless networks. Apparently one of them had an application installed that tried to download a large amount of data whenever it connected to a wireless network. Whether this was a legitimate application or a virus is unknown, but the users said that they hadn’t tried to download anything. In any case, legitimate or not, a big hunk of bandwidth was sucked up within the first hour that they were here. I spoke to them about it and they turned their devices off and there were no more issues the rest of the evening. However, the next day they used 241 Mb in a short period of time and we had to disable their access to the system.

This weekend the park was full and we had 32 users on the Wi-Fi system. Average use for 31 of these users over the 3-day weekend was 24 – 28 Mb per user per day. This represents about 70% of our allowed usage. When the 32nd user uses another 20% of our allowance in a very short period of time, we must take appropriate action.

We truly regret any inconvenience this caused them, but Hughesnet limits the amount of bandwidth we can use and if that limit is exceeded, they shut us down for 24 hours. We simply can’t allow a situation where one user causes everyone to lose their internet access.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Everything was clean and neat. We felt we have privacy. The noise level was really low. We felt safe. I left my purse on the chair outside 1 day while we were away and nothing was bothered. Thank you for sharing your space with us. (32′ Travel Trailer 05/27 – 05/30)
Alton & Grace Reed Granite Falls, NC Site 28 05/30/2011
It’s hard to say enough good things about Mountain Stream RV Park. The owners, Ron & Becky, have worked hard & smart in working all the details out to make this a true park, not just a place to park your RV. The first thing you notice is the beautiful landscaping; both the plantings & grassy areas surrounded by the natural beauty. The park itself is in a narrow mountain valley with trees everywhere. Beautiful Buck Creek flows swiftly by two sides of the park. A very nice pavilion has a small stage for entertainment on Saturday evenings with a covered dish dinner before the show. It’s all low key & very pleasant. We are new to RVing & this park makes us feel good about RVing. We plan on returning many times. Thanks for such an exceptional place.

Once again, we had a GREAT time at Mt. Stream. The grounds are immaculate and the sites are spacious. We tell all of our camping friends about this “Little Piece of Heaven” in the North Carolina Mountains. Can’t wait to get back up here. Until then, God Bless. (30′ 5th Wheel 05/20 – 05/23)

Daniel & Adrienne Estrada West Union, SC Site 03 05/22/2011
It is the “Most Beautiful Campground this side of Heaven”! This is our 2nd time here and we are making plans to come back next month. It is very clean and the pictures on the website show how beautiful this retreat is. Love it! (Pop-Up 05/20 – 05/22)
Richard & Joy Mauney Mooresville, NC Site 07 05/22/2011
This is our fifth time at Mountain Stream so I’d say it is safe to say we love this place!! This is such a beautiful setting and having such friendly hosts as Ron & Becky makes it all the better. Could you move your RV park west about 2 or 3 states so we could get here more often – and keep the same beautiful setting (grin)? This year’s trip to Mountain Stream is extra special because this is our 50th wedding anniversary. (A-Liner 05/18 – 05/23)
Norm & Rose Robeson El Paso, IL Site 13 05/21/2011
We have not been able to come back to Mt. Stream for a while until this weekend & wow; the park always looks good but the improvements are amazing. All the site tables have been redone, railings with rope lighting – it is a picture. Thanks for a beautiful place to relax. We enjoyed the gospel group on Saturday evening & the good fellowship. Can’t wait for the next trip. (30′ 5th Wheel 05/14 – 05/16)
Marvin & Gail Walker Chesnee, SC Site 09 05/16/2011
We so enjoyed our stay here @ Mountain Stream. Everything is SPOTLESS. Your bath house has to be the top #1 in our camping experiences. In our travels we know for “sure” this is where we will return, should we find ourselves in Marion, NC again. Thanks for the friendliness, your help with the computer and all the other little things you’ve done. (25′ Class C 05/05 – 05/07)
Mike & Donna Matz Twin Mountain, NH Site 02 05/07/2011
One of the nicest RV parks we’ve stayed in during our 30-day trip. It was quiet and clean with well manicured sites right next to a beautiful stream that made for peaceful sleep. We camped here in a converted van with a pop-up top so the sound of the stream and the lack of road noise were big pluses. Beautiful park!! (Van Conversion 05/06 – 05/07)

I just wanted to let you know that Teresa and I had a wonderful time last weekend. The park is beautiful and I was extremely pleased that it is owned by Christians. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute. It was difficult to leave Sunday knowing I had to return to work on Monday. (30′ Travel Trailer 04/28 – 05/01)

Small campground which is very well cared for. It is simply beautiful! The sound of the creek is extremely soothing. There is a beauty which is seen in the flowers and the many butterflies which encircle the area. It can’t get any better than this!! (36′ 5th Wheel 04/14 – 04/18)
Bob & Sheila Rudisill Troutman, NC Site 07 04/18/2011
Beautiful campground. Our site beside the creek was very relaxing. Quiet time of the year to be camping! Worth the 3 hour drive. Love to come again in the fall. (Pop-Up 04/14 – 04/17)
Francis & Lorna Perry Mebane, NC Site 11 04/16/2011
The campground is very beautiful & well-kept. But we were very disappointed in your “no grassy area” pet rule. We think it’s absurd & excessive. It is a campground, after all not a hospital. Usually, if pets are allowed, common sense and personal responsibility by pet owners are fine. I would suggest you create a designated grassy pet area. (25′ Travel Trailer 04/07 – 04/11)
Richard & Carolyn Palmer Grove City, PA Site 07 04/11/2011
Owner’s Comment: Our “please don’t let your dogs pee or poop in the grass” policy came about as a result of a number of camper complaints about dog poop on their sites and kids getting dog poop on their clothes while playing in the center area. Contrary to the camper’s comments above, common sense and personal responsibility are not traits all pet owners possess! Even now, we still have to go around the park regularly cleaning up dog poop that “responsible” pet owners have left behind. But at least now most of it is in gravel areas instead of the grass. Even when pet owners do clean up after their pets, there is still some left behind in the grass (especially when it’s soft or runny) and it does get on shoes or clothes when children play! I don’t believe the people who think it’s necessary that their dogs be able do their business where ever they want to would feel that way if it was their child or grandchild who came back to the camper smeared with dog poop.

A secondary reason for the policy is the fact that dog urine (especially from females) kills the grass. It leaves a dead spot that does not come back and must be reseeded. The same goes for male dogs that pee on the plants and shrubbery. Before we instituted this policy, the grassy areas on the sites had more dead spots than grass and the grassy area in the center was very unsightly. We spend a lot of time and money reseeding and fertilizing each year. A number of times, the gassy area on a site would be entirely destroyed in a single weekend when campers allowed their dogs (usually tied up with nowhere else to go) to pee in the grass. This did not lead to many comments about how beautiful and well-kept the campground was.

Now, having said that, we are making arrangements for a fenced, off-leash area for dogs. This will be at the west end of the center grassy area. We expect to have everything completed by mid-June.

The comment on the ad “Prettiest Little Park This Side of Heaven” is exactly right. The park is beautifully maintained. The bathhouses could not be any cleaner. It is the best place to go to rest and relax. The sound of the stream gives you the best night’s sleep. We love to camp and this park is our favorite. The only downside is – we didn’t want to go home. The hosts, Ron & Becky, are more than helpful. They are wonderful people. If you go once, we promise you will go BACK! We absolutely love – Mountain Stream. (30′ Travel Trailer 04/01 – 04/03)

While we’ve always enjoyed staying here, we are thrilled that since we were last here, you now have Wi-Fi and TV service. It was great to be able to watch the NCAA Tournament as well as having access to news and weather. We also appreciated that we can check e-mail and surf the web. We also commend you for the immaculate campground that is well maintained as well as clean. Lord willing, we will be back! Oh, and the new picnic tables are the best we’ve ever seen in any campground. You’ve done a great job! (36′ 5th Wheel 03/17 – 03/20)
