About The Wilds


Known as the “Land of Waterfalls,” Transylvania County, North Carolina (home to The Wilds) features more waterfalls than any other locale in the United States. Many people are surprised to learn that The Wilds has many of our own waterfalls. After Toxaway Creek makes its way through the campsite, it continues on over four significant drops in elevation, creating our four more prominent waterfalls plus our 30’ Shoals. Downstream from the Shoals is the 25′ 1st Falls, followed by the 35′ 2nd Falls. The 45′ 3rd Falls is a short distance further downstream, followed by the crown jewel, the 125′ 4th Falls. Junior Campers have the choice to visit either the Shoals or 1st Falls, while the Teen Campers have the option of visiting either 2nd Falls or 4th Falls during their visit.

*Please note that hiking on The Wilds property is for our paying campers only. Please call our camp office if you have further questions.
