Camp Green Cove

IF YOU USE GPS, MAKE SURE IT GOES TO THIS LOCATION.

Also make sure you have enough time to get there.

Our outing will be at Camp Green Cove, about 35 minutes south of downtown Asheville; see directions and Googlemap below. Keep in mind that once you leave the interstate, you may not have cell phone signal or GPS reception. 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!
