Rutledge Lake RV Park is owned by the Cogdill family, with Miss. G assuming the role of primary owner and Park Manager since August 2008. This is a second career for Miss. G, who is also an experienced, registered cardiac nurse.
The Cogdill family has traveled extensively in the States and different locations in South America, Belize, finally settling in Asheville since 1996. Miss G. states that “I do have to agree with many people that come to see the Blue Ridge Parkway that this is a beautiful place to live.”
Rutledge Lake is a gated community with a 24 hour on call person available to answer any of your questions. Miss G and her staff strive to make your visit an enjoyable and relaxing experience and look forward to return visits from your family.
In-park staff hours and the Recreation Hall hours are 8:00 – 9:00 unless there are activities planned. We provide activities on Holiday Weekends please see the listing posted outside of the Hall for times and details of the upcoming events.
The bathhouse, laundry facility and pool are maintained daily to insure that all are spotlessly clean. The pool is heated to 74 degrees and it is open from Memorial Day to the Labor Day Holiday.
Whether it is a hot game of pool, table tennis, watching the “big game” on our large screen TV or snuggling up in front of the fireplace with a good book, gathering in our large recreation room on rainy days or cool winter days is sure to pick up your spirits.
Our lake is stocked, and catch and release fishing is allowed for registered guests. Not into fishing? No problem! Rutledge Lake also offers paddle boat and Canoe rentals at $5.00 for four hours and we supply the life vests. Please see the office to rent one of the boats and obtain the life vests.
Need to stretch your legs? Enjoy our serenity trail as it follows our little creek at the edge of the park. Benches are provided so you can sit and enjoy our birds and White Squirrels.
There is a propane fill station on-site for your convenience. Notify the office that you are in need of propane and they will arrange for an employee to meet you at the fill station.
We strive to keep our park beautiful and clean.
Please respect our nature and wildlife.
