The campground is surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains…so beautiful! Quiet campground with hiking trails, small fishing lake, playgrounds, an arcade room, and camp store. One of the hiking trails leads to a waterfall. Close to an apple orchid, which is so cool to visit (they’re dog friendly) and not too far of a drive from the Linville Falls. Will definitely come back!
Super nice owners, we had a tent camp party of 10 and really enjoyed the time there. Ice and firewood are available onsite, as well as some general store goods like sunscreen, t-shirts, etc. The bathroom/shower facilities were excellent. The sites are clean and clear.
Super close to the gorge as well, easy drive access. Also highly recommend the only diner there "down the street" (a stone building, iirc) at the crossroads - excellent burger and fries for takeout if you're in the mood.
One note - this is indeed a "family" campground, so taking our college-aged group there with a 10pm curfew was a bit rocky but it worked out fine.
We have visited twice. Great park, my favorite in the state. Love hiking on the bald peaks. We stayed in March 2019 and was caught in a surprise snow storm. We had the most fun on this trip. The State had the roads plowed by noon so we were never stranded. Great facilities, clean and warm.
We go back here multiple times each season. Very family friendly. Sites are relatively clean, easy to park at, bath house is clean& easily accessible. They even have a"coffee shop". The staff here are amazing! The campground is tucked away outside of Boone, but not so far that if you really need something you cant get it. The staff does a great job making sure the quiet hours are really quiet and no craziness happens. After looking around at other campgrounds, we really love this one. Most of the sites are shaded so in the heat of the summer it is really pleasant to hang out at the campsites(usually with a nice breeze). The location is also not far from the Blue Ridge Parkway and lots of great hiking.
This campground is a great place for the whole family! Two leg and four leg 🙂. No matter how you camp. Weather in a tent, camper, RV, pull behind or one of their cabins.
Views of the Chimney Rock and Hickory Nut Falls with a beautiful, rocky river in front of the campgrounds. Just down the road approximately 1/2 mile from town. Amenities also include WiFi, water, and bathhouses. A general Store on site. The cabins are furnished completely with bathrooms included. A playground is also included for the kidos.
Great little campground for a hop off night stay on the way to Myrtle Beach. Check in was quick and easy…. Manger called us about an hour before closing and said if the office was locked when we got there then check-in info would be outside the office. Only complaint is noise from the highway but we were so tired, it didn’t matter.
My husband and I started our camping life with Bear Den in 2004 and we decided to come back in our own camper this time. The roads in are very narrow and winding. There were some pretty hairy parts coming in. Thankfully we made it without too many issues. Our site had some great views but mostly because the other sites were empty. The sites are very close together but if the foliage was filled in it would likely not seem as close.
The weather was extremely cold and we ended up losing our heat so had to cut the trip short but we had a nice time otherwise. We will definitely be back if we have more time. The hassle of getting in and out of the campground and each space isn’t something we want to do for a weekend trip.
