Remote, quiet campground on the stream - options for the whole family!

Black Bear Resort was about an hour from Boone NC. We had come to camp and do some section hiking of the Appalachian Trail. This campground was nice in many ways - there was a variety of camping available, from different homes/cabins to rent, to a bunkhouse, RV sites in the very back of the facility and tent sites down by the stream.

We were camping in early June, it was very quiet - in fact, we were the only tent campers! We camped down by the stream in tents and hammocks - close enough to be able to hear the trickle of the water all night long!

When we first pulled in, we were greeted by a gentleman on a golf cart. He offered to help us shuttle our supplies to the creek. We were car camping, but able to carry our supplies easily on the stone walkways. We walked past the one room cabins (most had 2 sets of bunk beds inside) and down to the creek edge where we set up camp.

We loved this campsite, due to the close nature to the water, easy accessibility for swimming, flush toilets and hot showers, the lack of poison ivy (at least that we ran into) and remote feeling provided.

This campground is good for the entire family. My extended family that RV camps could have stayed here with us, as well as other friends and family who prefer warm beds in cabins and houses. We'll surely be back!

  • Many trees scattered throughout to hang hammocks easily!
  • Lots of good rocks for exploring!
  • Enjoying the sounds of the water from inside our tent!
  • Sitting on our mulch tent pad!
  • Jake enjoyed playing in the creek with the rest of us!
  • Lots of fun in cool mountain water!
