We will have spent 3 nights in this National Forest Campground when we leave tomorrow. The campground is organized into 8 loops and most every site has just enough privacy for this type of camping. Site 145, the one in which we currently reside, is directly on the Davidson River and is currently a "walkup" only site (no reservations). I showed up Sunday without reservation and was able to book it.
Davidson is just three miles from downtown Brevard. There are grocery stores and breweries and a giant bike shop nearby, among other amenities. I see people trout fishing in the Davidson. There's nice trail that runs much of the way into town so I took the bike for a spin into town this morning.
It's a gem.
