Bear Run offers pull through sites for larger RV's. The pool is smaller but still enjoyable. Tons of activities always planned on the weekend. Family Friendly Friendly!
Nice campground but too hilly for kids to ride bikes. Very close to Lake Arthur for fishing and kayaking.
We stayed at this camp ground for our first experience camping! Quiet and friendly place!
Bear Run Campground is not a state-run campground, so it doesn't come attached to a large parcel of woodlands with trails to explore. Even the nearby Moraine State Park isn't exactly an outdoors-man's paradise. Depending on what you want from a camping trip, this could be the place for you. I tend to think of camping as an escape from suburban life. I go to be in the forest, surrounded by trees, and streams, and silence. If that sounds like you, then Bear Run is not your spot. It's where people who love action go to camp. It's got everything: a large store with gifts and supplies, a swimming pool, horseback riding, games, a laundromat, even the occasional class or two. And it's all squeezed in very tightly together. The campsites are all side-by-side. There's a lot of car traffic and kids on bicycles, too. To me, this place sort of feels like a Pittsburgh neighborhood with trailers instead of row houses. If you're an extroverted camper who loves to meet his or her neighbors and play horseshoes and corn hole all day, you'll probably like this place. It's just not me. Having said all of that, the place is well-run, and the management is friendly and helpful.
This is a great campground for families. I always camp near the horses as i like a bit more privacy. The front of the campground is a bit too packed for my liking. They also have a primative area that is quite nice. Moraine State Park is close by for canoeing and fishing.
We always have an amazing time at Bear Run! Very family friendly place and pets are welcome too! My son loves the horse rides on Sundays
