Murphy, North Carolina Campgrounds and RV Parks

You would be hard-pressed to find a better location for experiencing the southern Appalachian Mountains than from one of the RV parks in Murphy, North Carolina. There are dozens to choose from, with several within the city limits and countless others spread around the neighboring natural attractions. This is where Tennessee, Georgia, and North Carolina Meet, and the town of Murphy is within an easy day’s drive from treasures like Chattahoochee National Forest, Nantahala National Forest, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park further north, near the town of Cherokee. Some of the best RV parks in North Carolina are in this corner of the state, and they’re located at the center of some of the most popular metro areas in the south. Beginning clockwise at noon for dead north, Murphy is a day from Knoxville, Asheville, Greenville, Atlanta, and Chattanooga. With such as the case, it’s nearly impossible to be bored here.

The city of Murphy has plenty to offer those who want to stay around town. The Hiwassee River is dammed near Murphy, creating Hiwassee Lake and in turn creating some of the best boating, fishing, and paddling waters in the entire south. Winding country roads meander around the hills, yielding numerous spots to drop a line, with trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. Just across the border in Georgia is Nottely Lake, and to the east of town is the Chatuge Lake.

Closer to town, check out Harrah’s Cherokee Valley River Casino, stroll along the Murphy River Walk, or hike the trail up to Fire Creek Falls. For a better understanding of the area’s history and culture, find your way to the Cherokee County Museum and Murphy Visitor Center. The town is also home to a winery, and the Salty Dog Gem Mine allows visitors to hunt for their own precious stones that emerge from the muddy banks of the area’s many creek beds.
