FBRF22 and you on the banks of the French Broad River
The land is flat on the west bank of the French Broad River where the Hot Springs Campground is located, mature trees throughout with the exception of a few grassy, open areas.  It's a special place and when you're there, you can feel it.  The mountains rise dramatically on the other side of the river and there are prominent rock outcroppings including "Lovers Leap", where legend has it that a lovesick Cherokee maiden leapt from the rock 500' above.  Native Americans discovered the warm mineral waters nearby, from whence the town got its name, and held spiritual ceremonies here.  In the 1800's the Buncombe Turnpike passed here, undoubtably formed from trails the Native Americans had blazed for decades.  In 1837 a 350 room hotel was built, then the railroad came in 1882 and in 1887 a larger hotel to make this place one of the most elegant resorts in the country in it's heyday.  Now there are no large hotels just a beautiful campground and a quiet town nearby.  In early May it's breathtaking, rain or shine, and simply the best place you can be at that time, in that moment, at this festival.  Float the river or relax on its banks, hike the Appalachian Trail up to Lover's Leap, soak in the mineral spring baths, listen to great music with friends.  Feel the history and significance of this place.  It's an experience you won't regret.
