If you can get to Davy Crockett by Thursday night you can come over to Jonesboro for the international storytelling festival which starts on Friday runs through the weekend. I checked yesterday and there were still nine sites available at Davy Crockett .Jonesboro to Asheville is as pretty a piece of interstate as you'll find in the eastern United States (okay I said interstate.)
Just south of Asheville you can pick up the Blue Ridge Pkwy. and run about 40 some odd miles right into the Smoky Mountains national Park.
We frequent the Davidson River national Forest campsite just outside of Brevard North Carolina. From there it's just a twisty few miles up to the Blue Ridge and west toward the Smokies. The campsite is mostly dry camping except for one loop with electricity but it is situated in tall trees and gives you a feeling of quiet solitude as each loop is small and self-contained. Hot showers and a trout stream runs through it. Lots of mountain biking, nice college town very close AND nearly 300 waterfalls in Transylvania County alone....
