Curtis Creek Campground


Also make sure you have enough time to get there.

Our outing will be at Curtis Creek Campground, about 45 minutes east of downtown Asheville; see directions and Googlemap below. Do not rely on your GPS until you make sure it matches these directions or you will very likely get lost.  Also keep in mind that once you leave the interstate, you will probably NOT have cell phone signal. You may not have GPS reception either. So make sure you print or save these directions beforehand and follow them precisely.

These directions are from central Asheville, specifically, from Greenlife Grocery (our local Whole Foods). We recommend buying snacks or even a picnic lunch for after the tour, as well as “using the facilities” while you’re there.

Finally, remember that if you’re planning to bring some of our “catch of the day” to one of our partner restaurants, you MUST make a special reservation (see here). See you in the woods!



Head south on Merrimon Avenue towards downtown then turn left to merge onto I-240E/70E. Continue to follow 240E for 3.7 miles, then take the exit on the left for I-40E towards Statesville.

In about 19 miles take exit 72 for US 70 toward Old Fort. Continue onto US 70E/W Main Street. In 2.6 miles turn left onto Curtis Creek Road. The campground is in about five miles. Drive through it to the day use parking on the left. Your guide will meet you there.

You can’t learn to forage from a website.
Always learn from an expert, preferably your parents.
