All Calmwater trips from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend, will leave from our Hot Springs Outpost

We do not recommend using ride-sharing services (Uber, Lyft, etc) to get to our main outpost. While Marshall is only 30 minutes outside of Asheville it’s much more quiet and rural, which means return rides can be difficult to secure. Please plan on driving or having a dedicated ride to your adventure. If you have questions, please call us.

Our Location

First, follow the directions to the FBA Hot Springs Outpost.

Once you have passed our Marshall Outpost, follow the rest of the directions here.

  • Continue on Hwy 25-70 toward Hot Springs for approximately another 6 miles.
  • Turn left, following signs for 25-70 towards Hot Springs.
  • Continue approximately another 5.5 miles into the town of Hot Springs.
  • Once you cross a small bridge over the French Broad River you will see the Hot Springs Spa Suites on the right and the Hot Springs Campground on the left.
  • Our Hot Springs outpost is just past the campground on the left. You will see a brown fence and a small tan building with tents and picnic tables in front.
  • If you go over the railroad tracks you have gone too far.
