  • Roan Mountain is one of my favorite places to hike! We always go up on the grassy balds and the view never disappoints. Even though the trail was slick in spots, it isn't an overly strenuous hike. How...  more »
  • November hiking and camping trip was extremely cold. Wouldn't recommend it, but it was memorable. The cabins are comfortable and can sleep quite a few people, and a great place for base camp if you ne...  more »
  • Roan Mountain State Park campground is one of the best campgrounds we have stayed at! All sites are paved and level, bathhouses are clean and warm. There is no cell or TV service but the WiFi network ...  more »

  • We love to drive to Roan Mountain. Today, my husband was hoping for snow. Not today! There were some patches, but nothing on the road and very little on the ground. The Visitors Center was open, with warm, clean restrooms. Looking forward to Spring and the Rhododendron Festival in June 2018.
  • Visited the Miller farmstead. It is very peaceful here. The farmstead sits in a small valley. I don't know if it's a working farm, but the home, land and outbuildings are well maintained. You can walk around the property and one of the park's hiking trails goes through here.
  • Absolutely a gorgeous park with lots of amenities and activities for all ages. Great camping is also to be had here. The drive up to the top of the mountain is also breathtaking, and if you’re willing to hike part of the Appalachian Trail up to the bald, you will be rewarded with spectacular views into Mitchell County, NC. Also, I recommend visiting in June when the rhododendrons are in bloom at the gardens.
  • I stayed in one of the cabins here and I was very impressed with both the park and the facilities. All areas were clean, cabin was well equipped (shower and kitchen even) and spacious (the cast iron stove was more than adequate for heating as well), trails well marked, roads clear even with the snowy conditions, and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. I will be returning here and I would recommend it to both day visitors and longer stays. Beautiful countryside.
  • Cabins are great! If you want to get away from the world, recharge and take in the great outdoors, this is the place. Simple, clean and fully equipped. Priced just right for the high quality service.
