Beartree offers a relaxing, family-friendly atmosphere and a variety of recreational activities. Located in the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area, the campground boasts a sprawling layout with both group and individual campsites. A small creek flows through the campground, offering a refreshing spot to wade and fish.

Beartree Lake is also located within the recreation area, providing an ideal spot for swimming and fishing.

Recreation

The campground offers two fishing piers, and smallmouth bass, sunfish, rainbow and brown trout are all possible catches.

The Beartree Lake Trail, which circles the lake, is excellent for hiking. Half of the trail is paved for an easier walk.

The 14-acre lake hosts an annual fishing derby for kids in October. 

Facilities

Tent and RV campers are welcome. Drinking water and a water fill-up station are provided. A dump station is located on the left side of the road before the contact station as you enter the campground. Each site has a grill and picnic table, and most are secluded from other sites. The group picnic shelter accommodates 50 guests and most group sites fit 24 guests.
