North Carolina Blue Ridge Parkway

On an extended trip we're planning for this summer we intend to go to Asheville NC among other stops along with Boone and Blowing Rock.
It's been probably 35 years since I was on the Parkway and my memory is fuzzy.
Can we go on I t with the rig and are there any clearance issues ?

Also wondering if anyone has any good suggestions for Rv parks I the western NC and eastern TN region.

Unfortunately you will have problems trying to take the rig on the blue ridge. Many bridges are only 11-12ft in height with low tree clearances......... and most sections carry a weight limit well under what you have of your complete rig. Not to mention narrow roads.....it was bad enough just will the dually. I k ow there are some sections that allow trucks for delivery of services for the rest areas but I believe they are very limited. There is a website that provides info on the road at Blue Ridge Parkway - Home that you may find helpful in your research. Travel through Asheville yearly on our migratory route....have stopped to enjoy the scenery absolutely gorgeous! Consider a trip to Gatlinville, TN along Great Smokies..worth the side trip and not too much out of the way. Good luck and enjoy!

If your going to the Ashville area let me suggest a camp ground to you. It is near Waynesville n.c. which is just a few miles from Ashville. Creekwood Farms rv park, you will never find a more friendly or cleaner park. It is close to all expressways and many attractions around the area. Just a few moments from the Parkway and many great day trips.

You can run the parkway, but will have to get off and on in many areas to get around low clearances and weights. We did it once and the next time just found a good campsite and did trips up and down. Another good campsite is Mama Gerties. If you like hiking and waterfalls, there are so many along that range that you can spend weeks checking them all out.
