Welcome to The Camp! The Camp, formerly known as 'Camp Mishemokwa', was a sleep-away summer camp for children that began operating in 1923. Although it is no longer a summer camp, we have beautifully renovated the facilities and the 4 homes.
This home, known as EAGLES NEST, has 5 bedrooms (1 is a bunk room w/ 3 bunk beds), 4 baths, and 2 family rooms, and a beautiful granite and stainless steel kitchen.
A new adventure awaits you every hour at The Camp. You'll be surprised at all you can do without ever leaving. You might go for a morning jog on the paved trail, take a few hits at the punching bag in the exercise room, shoot a round of hoops in the gym, and then take a dip in the heated pool. After dinner, you may find yourself engaged in a game of Scrabble in the social hall and then winding-down with a local brew as you listen to a friend play guitar by the campfire. This is the kind of camaraderie that you'll come to cherish at The Camp.
The Camp is located near several of the best attractions that the North Carolina mountains have to offer. A scenic seven mile drive brings you to Lake Lure, where Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey practiced dance moves in the moonlit water in the hit 80's movie Dirty Dancing. Just down the road from Lake Lure is Chimney Rock Park, a thousand-acre pet-friendly park, whose main attraction is breathtaking Exclamation Point which offers a stunning view of the gorge below. Nearby attractions also include gem mining, whitewater rafting, and hiking trails.
You'll find everything you ever dreamed possible right on-site at The Camp. Food delivery is available from dozens of Asheville restaurants. The Camp also provides plenty of firewood for those cozy campfires and delightful s'mores that will make you giggle like you haven't in years. Ideal for large gatherings, multi-family getaways, or an exclusive escape, The Camp is private, well appointed, and brimming with loads of fun for all ages!
