Peaceful Cove Campground

Andy and Mary are the hosts of this tranquil spot along the Cullasaja River just outside of Franklin, NC. This property has been in the McGavic family since 1978 when Andy’s mom and dad found this place and fell in love with it. They used it as a refuge from their busy lives in Florida and “home base” when traveling all over the country on their motorcycle. A few years ago, Andy and Mary took over the lovely property and decided it was too nice not to share. They enjoy exploring the many mountain roads in their Jeep, cooking with friends around the campfire and tubing down the river.
