We went here for the first time Sunday of Labor Day Weekend. There were a couple of hundred cars parked along the gravel road and almost as many looking for a parking spot. It's a beautiful place but suffers from overuse during weekends. I went again the Tuesday after Labor Day and it was idyllic. Arriving at 8:30 I was... More

You have to love great scenery in out of the way places where last part of trip is dirt road. You will be rewarded with swimming, sunning on big rocks, views unreal.

No doubt it is a beautiful area. We stopped to investigate all the whooping and playful happy sounds in the Gorge.

Wilson Creek means different things to different folks. It's a great place to go camping. It's a great place to go fishing, tubing, and kyacking. It is stocked with rainbow and brown trout.

Bring the family or go along to soak up nature and all her glory! A bit hidden but GPS will take you to it. In the area of Colletsville, NC, you can see wildlife at it's finest. Great for stock and native trout fishing.

Great place to swim, picnic, or just enjoy the view. It had no rained in a while and the road was very dusty. Parking spaces are limited as well.

What a beautiful place to visit. The water is crystal clear and the rocks are amazing. We had fun skipping rocks on the river and hiking to a waterfall :-)
