Saxapahaw Campground was conceived to provide a unique camping experience for visitors to the village of Saxapahaw and surrounding area with its many attractions and activities. The campground encompasses 10 acres of beautiful wooded land and is located right on the Haw River just below the Saxapahaw dam. It is an easy 10-12 minute walk from the campground to the village of Saxapahaw.
Fresh drinking water is available in several locations on the campground. Food and supplies can be found in the village of Saxapahaw. For easy access to the village, the Haw River Hiking Trail runs along the river’s edge and provides a path to the bridge to cross the river. It's an easy 10-12 minute walk to the village. There is a central gathering place under the 22×40 foot pavilion which is located in the middle of the campground. Another popular area is around the campground main fire pit, which is close to the river's bank. There are two nice hot outdoor showers for bathing and our clean and frequently serviced toilet house provide real flush toilets. Strategically placed trash receptacles are provided to help you keep the campground clean.

Guest can choose between bringing their own tent or renting our tree pod or one of the two cabins we have. We also have tree tents that are located about 4 feet above ground level that campers can rent.
Designated tent spots are available or you can choose a spot in one of our "camp areas" close to the river or even close to the dam. Multiple tent locations have their own picnic table, fire ring, and grill. Some camp areas can accommodate a small pop-up or teardrop camper and we do allow van or truck slide in campers (no power/sewer hook-ups). Camp spots are $30/night for 1 tent and $10 extra per person per night for more than 2 people in the same tent. Our Tree Pod is $85/night and Cabins are $75/night. The cabins have a queen bed with a cot option for a third person. The Tree Pod can accommodate up to 4 people with a queen loft sleeping area and additional room for 2 cots. The double tree tent can accommodate two people (400lb max) and cost $50/night. The single tree tent can hold 250 lb max and cost $40/night. Our max stay on the campground is two weeks. We are not set up for RV's or large travel trailers and do not allow them. Please call, text, or email for reservations.
We do not allow campers to bring pets.
The campground pavilion is a great gathering place and is perfect for things like family reunions, cook outs, and birthday parties! The pavilion can be reserved separately.
We love our customers, so feel free to call and set up a facility tour during normal business hours.
