    Default Rich Mountain Lookout Tower near Hot Springs, NC

    Looking for any info on the campsite(s) at the Rich Mountain Lookout Tower in NC at mile 283.2 heading NOBO from Hot Springs, NC.

    Water? How many sites? Can you cowboy camp in the tower? Established fire rings? Bear activity? Bear cables?

    Thanks for any info. I plan to do a weekend overnight in the coming weeks.

    There is a campsite just below trail at the Firetower side trail.
    Cowboy yes.
    Water can be scarce at the campsite. But its rained quite a bit in western NC. And cooling down.

    I was there Oct 15 - didnít camp there but went up to the tower. If you are going northbound on the AT, there is a side trail up to Rich Mountain. Just a bit further on at AT from that junction there was flowing water.
