The Camp is located near several of the best attractions that the North Carolina mountains have to offer. A scenic seven mile drive brings you to Lake Lure, where Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey practiced dance moves in the moonlit water in the hit 80's movie Dirty Dancing. Just down the road from Lake Lure is Chimney Rock Park, a thousand-acre pet-friendly park, whose main attraction is breathtaking Exclamation Point which offers a stunning view of the gorge below. Nearby attractions also include gem mining, whitewater rafting, and hiking trails.
You'll find everything you ever dreamed possible right on-site at The Camp. Food delivery is available from dozens of Asheville restaurants. The Camp also provides plenty of firewood for those cozy campfires and delightful s'mores that will make you giggle like you haven't in years. Ideal for large gatherings, multi-family getaways. The Camp well appointed, and brimming with loads of fun for all ages!
For nearly eight decades prior to its renovation, The Camp operated as Camp Mishemokwa where hundreds of children spent summers having all the classic first-time-at-camp experiences. In 2005, The Blum Family purchased the 150-acre property, spending countless dollars and tireless hours rebuilding, renovating, and giving The Camp a new lease on life as an exclusive vacation rental property.
Darren Blum purchased this house in 2005
There is nothing else like it! The Camp artfully combines luxurious, comfortable accommodations with a 150-acre fun park (complete with heated pool, a 150ft water slide and a huge Social Hall/Arcade/Game Room!) set in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. The 4 homes on the estate can be rented individually or together.
When you rent a home at The Camp, you not only get a gorgeous accommodation with all the comforts of home, but you also have FREE use of the fantastic amenities available on-site. There is truly something to do for every age group!
This is a great place for families, guy groups, or any active group. With all of the sports available it was perfect for a 20th college reunion group. There is as much luxury as you want in the houses, and the dining hall makes a great gathering spot. If you have kids, there is a ton to keep them busy as well. We hope to come back soon.
This was one of the best places my group has stayed. We were very impressed with the facilities, and there was always something to do. We enjoyed having our banquet in the social hall, and then enjoying a game of ping pong. The girls loved laying out by the pool, and the guys played a great game of basketball. Oh, The Water Slide. Amazing!!!
I don't believe pictures or words can sufficiently describe what this property has to offer. There truly is something for everyone at The Camp. My first of many visits to The Camp was on a guys trip filled with unbelievable memories. After that trip, I realized I needed to experience The Camp with my family. Although our children range in age from 16, 11, 2 and my wife and I were amazed at how much we were all able to do both on the property, and within in close proximity to Bat Cave. Being very fortunate to have returned to The Camp several times and in each of the four seasons, I could not imagine staying anywhere else in the Carolinas. This is the most economic way of having a home away from home. I must say that no matter what time of year you are looking to travel, there are a lifetime of memories waiting for you at the The Camp NC!
I am lucky enough to know the owner of the camp and am fortunate to have visited the camp at least 10 times ... so i am a little biased. Darren has created a piece of heaven in the hills - the camp has provided endless hours of enjoyment for our children, parents, siblings, etc. Plenty of activities, awesome grounds, amazing memories and more starts than you will see in a planetarium. You will never stay just once at the camp - i think about it while i work and want to go back again and again. You will not be diappointed.
The camp is a perfect venue for any get away!!! We have been there with and without children many times and always had a great time. The amenities are wonderful: cozy living spaces, outdoor waterslide, pool, gym, trails, close to chimney rock and Lake Lure, and so much more!!! The owners are very responsive to your needs and always available to answer questions and provide great advice on day trips and sights to see in NC. They make sure your "camp experience" is truly wonderful and relaxing. Your family will want to go back year after year - mine do!!
The camp is absolutely gorgeous. I must have went down the water slide 100 times. I couldn't believe it when I walked into a full-size basketball court/gym. I worked up a real good sweat and then did a few laps in the refreshing pool. The house itself is very luxurious and is decorated beautifully.
The listing on this site was extremely accurate and the pictures were right-on. I couldn't get over how big the property was. We had a campfire and made smores which brought me back to my childhood.
The kids can also play pool, ping pong, pinball and other games in the game room. Yes, I said a game room. Unlimited play....nice!
I would recommend this vacation home to anyone who wants to give their family a real cozy vacation in the mountains with unlimited things to enjoy. Talk about lifestyles of the rich and famous, this was awesome.
