We stayed at Bear Den at the end of October 2020 to enjoy the autumn colors in Western NC. I loved being able to camp in our little Casita in Pisgah National Forest right off the Blue Ridge Parkway. We were able to take advantage of hiking at Linville Falls/Gorge, Grandfather Mountain and Hawksbill Mountain. Plenty of other activities around if hiking is not your thing. Some of the sites are a bit close due to it being a private campground. However, we scouted out the best sites for us and are rebooked in a much more private site for 2021. Wi-fi is only available up near the visitors center. Well maintained campground with clean facilities. Water, electric and sewer hook up available.
Very friendly and helpful staff they know the surrounding hikes very well Lots of activities during daylight hours with a playground for the kids Quiets down at sunset
Being right on the Parkway was awesome and provided some great driving and hiking close by. The staff were very helpful. We camped at C13 which was right across from the large playground in November. No noise issues, but it was dark by 6:30pm. May be different in the Summer. My daughter had a blast and we could keep an eye on her while we worked/played at the site.
