Clean, Quiet, and Spacious

We spent 3 nights at Bear Den Family Campground at site A12. The campground is located directly off the Blue Ridge Parkway about a half a mile into the woods. Once you arrive and check in, a staff member leads you to your site and guides you in. We had a back in site, but there are plenty of pull…

Getting away from it all

I started out coming here with my grandparents in 1978 every summer spending 2 to 4 weeks during the summer up here. Back then it was was all primitive camp sites with no electricity or water hook ups. There were 3 loops with campsites A,B,& C loops each loop had a women's & a men's…

All Dirt Roads Lead to……

Mortimer Campground does not disappoint! Hiking, fishing, swimming, and waterfall splashing abound on, and around, this campground. Many of the campsites are situated along Thorps Creek, so the sound of the creek can lull you to sleep. We stayed on site #6, which was on the creek. Two…

Dispersed Camping

We drove in mid day and couldn’t find a spot, unfortunately. All dispersed spots were taken. However, there are parking spaces that you can park in overnight in front of hunting shelters. Just be mindful of how you park and don’t take up handicapped parking.

Great family campground

This was a perfect place for a weekend getaway. We stayed at a tent site and were happy with the amenities. There’s a pond for fishing and swimming, trails to hike, and playgrounds for the kids. The only downside is the sites are quite close to one another and the golf carts can be loud, although…

Fun... Enough

Just a very small campground, seems to be family friendly with just enough amenities. There's a playground, sand boxes and paved semi level RV pads. I wouldn't come back but the place is very quiet. If you're into that...

On the fly

My husband and I took a road trip and needed to find a spot to car camp last minute in the area. The narrow road to go up/down is alittle sketchy but we made it. The first two spots were taken so we drove to the end where it seperated to private drives. There was a fire pit and a trail that we…

Great Location for family and hikes!

Beautiful campground! Right by the river, which makes for wonderful sleeping at night. There is a swimming hole and a fishing hole, both well-maintained. Campground hosts were very nice. Lots of trees for some cool coverage from the sun. About a 30 minute drive from Mount Mitchell, and it's a…

Beautiful mountain campground

The staff here is friendly and attentive. They do an excellent job cleaning the bathrooms/showers and maintaining the trails and roads. Upon arrival, a staff member escorted us to our campsite and offered to help us back our tiny teardrop into the site. Sweet. The site we had was fairly level and…

Great spot

Great place by Blue Ridge Pkwy. Not very far off Pkwy, we had no problem getting there with our Artic Fox truck camper and pulling a Jeep. Stayed next to a creek at the end.

Nice park, hilly sites

Really nice facility near town. There are a lot of uneven campsites, so bring your leveling blocks. That said, great campground. The facilities were clean, the park was well kept and the train whistles were far enough away that they didn’t interrupt your sleep! No real hiking but there was boat…
