Camping and Lodging

Plenty of reasonably priced places to stay if you aren't camping. Things tend to get pricier the closer you get to Boone or Blowing Rock.

Food and Drink

If you get near Blowing Rock and want some really good eats and a great atmosphere, try "Eating in the Rough" at Woodlands BBQ. Best eats around at a great price. There are plenty of more expensive places but it has great eating and lots of ordinary folks.

If you want a decent steak or Ribs instead, then Outback is next door.
