Recreation at Hagood Mill Historic Site


Spring will soon be upon us and the weather will be perfect to play outside. Why not come to Hagood Mill Historic Site to enjoy the recreational opportunities there are for you to enjoy?

Camping is one of the popular recreational activities at Hagood Mill.  Camping at the site is primitive, but we do offer a three-bath bathhouse for campers.  Most campsites are equipped with a fire ring and picnic table.  We even have a “glamping” spot complete with a covered platform.  

Another recreational activity at Hagood Mill is an 18-hole disc golf course.  Playing disc golf is a great way to get some exercise and is a game that families can play together. Players can pick up a map of the course at the kiosk near the first tee.  The course is open during daylight hours.

For those who like to stroll or hike through nature, Hagood Mill Historic Site has a few different trails for you to discover.  “Our Native Roots: Interpretive Trail”is a self-guided trail.  Maps are available in the Mercantile and will guide visitors on a walking path that is thought to be a segment of the Buncombe Trail, an ancient Indian path that led into the French Broad River valley near Asheville, NC. 

There is also an approximate one-mile trail that goes around the perimeter of the property located across the street from the historic side of the site.  This trail takes walkers past views of Hagood Creek and passes by the Sacred Fire Circle, the Medicine Wheel Garden, and the labyrinth.

There are lots of things to see and do just on the grounds of the Hagood Mill Historic Site.  We hope that the next time you visit, you will take advantage of these.
