    Website Updates

    Dear Customers,

    We have received numerous suggestions and inquiries about our new website and we are happy to announce some of the updates that will be coming soon.  Brookside Campground & Rafting, established in 1975, has been providing the best customer service on the Nantahala River for over thirty years.  Central to keeping customers happy (and returning) is, of course, listening to their suggestions.  With that said, the following updates will be unveiled this fall:


    • Many more photos detailing the journey down the Nantahala River and of campground sites.
    • FAQ section.
    • Customer stories.
    • Video.
    • Local attraction links.
    • Ability to make reservations from the website.


    We hope you're as excited as we are about these improvements coming soon.  If you have a suggestion, please contact the webmaster by clicking here.  



    We now have a new portion of the website featuring customer photos.  If you're wondering what Brookside really looks like or you have been before, check out the photo page and feel free to add your own.


    No better time to camp or raft!

    This summer, we invite you to raft or camp with us.  The weather is perfect and there is no better time to visit the Great Smoky Mountains of western North Carolina.

    Also, make sure to reserve a spot for Labor Day.  As the summer ends, a camping and rafting trip with the family is the perfect way to start the school year.
