Fall Foliage Gathering (Newland, NC) @ Linville Falls Trailer Lodge And Campground | Newland | North Carolina | United States

A perfect time to enjoy the Fall Leaf Season in the mountains. Cool mornings and warm afternoons are a welcome kick off to Fall.  We are lucky enough to have secured the entire campground in this prime location, which is nearly impossible during leaf season.  


Linville Falls Trailer Lodge & Campground opened it’s doors in 1966 and retains the vintage features of the era. There is no wifi or cable tv but you won’t miss it!  The campground is tucked away just off the Blue Ridge Parkway at junction US 221, and is just minutes from Western North Carolina’s most spectacular attractions, including Linville Falls & Linville Gorge, Grandfather Mountain, Linville Caverns and Gem Mountain.

The campground offers both full hookup sites (water, sewer and electric) or just water and electric.  There are cabins and tent sites available as well.   In 2017 they will add a new bath house!

 We will have the entire campground held for us but it’s a small private campground so sites are limited. That means book early! If sites are gone, get on the wait list as we always have cancellations closer to the event!


Reservations can be made directly with the campground by calling Marla (828)765-2681  Please tell them you are with the Southern Vintage Trailer group to insure a spot.  Website for more info is www.linvillefalls.com

Festival of Lights Gathering

 


We proudly announce our 5th year attending the opening weekend of the Festival of Lights at James Island County Park.

As you know, the Festival of Lights Gathering is one of our most popular gatherings and sells out almost immediately.  In the past few years it’s become increasingly difficult to work with James Island Campground.  They are essentially not set up for groups of our size.  If you participated in the fiasco that booking became last year you will understand the issue.  Due to the situation last year and the feedback that was given from members of the group, SVTF will not be booking and holding a block of sites this year.  As with most gatherings, each individual will book their own sites directly with the campground.

 

Booking Details


Contact James Island County Park  during business hours 843-795-4386 to book your site ( Mon-Sun, 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.).
