Do not attempt to move an incapacitated person unless s/he is in immediate physical danger. There is always a radio at First Aid. If no one is immediately available, use the FRS radio on Wisteria Channel 3 to contact patrolling Wisteria Security/First Aid staff.

Located next to Caffeina’s
There’s no need to rough it when it comes to food. With our multi-generational love affair of working with food we delight in feeding the people. We make all our food home-style and try to add as many local/organic ingredients as we can. Dinners include a generous helping of sides as well as the entree. Compare our moderately priced meals, for healthy food, to the high cost of fast food. You will appreciate our home-style alternatives, served with a smile, in the beautiful fields of Wisteria. Many guests eat with us to save the time and cost of preparing and storing food at their encampment. Alternatively, you may want to eat some meals at your campsite, and some with friends at Caffeina’s, or just grab it on your way to your favorite workshop. The choice is yours, we’ll have the food hot and ready.
The playground is available for the enjoyment of the children. Children must be accompanied by an adult while in the playground area.
10:00am – 6:00pm (weather permitting)
Our natural swimming pond is open from 10:00am to 6:00 pm daily, weather permitting. Do NOT enter the pond area after it is closed. No lifeguard is on duty; swim at your own risk and obey all posted rules and regulations.
There are blue portable toilets located throughout the campground for your convenience. A disability-accessible portable toilet is available next to First-Aid. Please close the lid completely when finished to allow the convective process to function properly and keep the interior stink-free. If the toilet paper runs out please let a staff member know, and we will restock them promptly. Portable toilets are pumped every morning.
We are a pack in, pack out campground. Please plan to pack out any trash that you bring in. Trash services may be offered during events like Appalachian Summer Solstice 2021.
Enjoy a walk on the campground loop trails. Maps are available at the Wisteria office. The Yellow Trail has identification signs for Appalachian trees, plants and woodland herbs. Please respect the creatures that live here year round.
There are potable water spigots located throughout the campground. Please do not do your dishes there, we do not allow soap to run on the ground. Please use the green spigot handles, not the large blue hydrant handles, to obtain water; the large blue hydrant handles will be taped or locked closed during events. You may attach a hose only temporarily, and only through a tee and vacuum breaker. RV / Camper hookups are not permitted.
