Happy Campers!

    Clearwater Campground is located in Marion, NC.  We're located off Hwy 226A onto Armstrong Creek Road.  We offer beautiful, peaceful, secluded, and spacious campsites. Our park is nestled in the valley adjacent to Pisgah.

Clearwater is family owned.   Since 2005, the owners have spent countless hours developing this beautiful park for friends, families, and happy campers alike to enjoy.

We designed our RV park to blend in with nature.  We preserved the nature stone on the land to design the fire pits, flower beds, and stepping stones throughout the campground.

Happy Campers can relax and enjoy the great outdoors.  We offer trout fishing and tubing.  Adults and children alike enjoy the c
ool mountain water.  It's pure tranquility.  At night, adults and children enjoy relaxing by an open campfire, story telling, and roasting snacks.

All kinds of natural moss covers the trails and rocks. Several kinds of ferns and plants can be found along the creek banks.  We built several decks for our guest to admire the scenic views.
A small waterfall can be viewed behind site 2.  It's a wonderful place to read a book and escape from it all.  
The Blue Ridge Parkway is just a short drive away.  There are several beautiful areas to pull over and take a family photo.  Highway 226A is a scenic route that leads to Little Switzerland.  

Clearwater is just minutes away from
