Nice, woodsy campground. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The area is beautiful. There is a lot of topography at this campground; your kids may find riding bikes is a lot of work :) The bathhouses are older, both sinks clogged in the men's room by our site and the water was barely hot enough to shower, but man were they clean. The swimming hole was very nice and there are trails all around the campground. We really enjoyed ourselves and will return. I would definitely recommend to trailer and tent campers. I would be hesitant to drive an RV in and out of there daily though to visit attractions; once in and once out is fine but that entrance road is curvy and steep.

Our family of 6 (children ages 16-6) camped at Bear Den Campground from September 12, 2013 - September 19, 2013. The campground is very well maintained, the staff is friendly and helpful. The location is beautiful and rugged. I do not recommend staying at Bear Den for inexperienced trailer campers. The entrance to the campground is rugged, steep and curvy, but is driveable if you take it slowly and have a good tow vehicle and anti-sway device. We camped in our 25' JayFeather Hybrid and had very few problems getting in and out of our site. Our site (C3) was very nice, private and well maintained. We appreciated the trails and the playground area for our smaller children. We would highly recommend Bear Den Campground. # NOTE- DO NOT rely on Google Maps to get you there, the directions are completely wrong and will take you on an inappropriate route. #

It's hard to choose a campground from a Web search. But we hit the jackpot with Bear Den! Our experience there was wonderful! We were in the tent/pop-up area, and our site was well-shaded by tall trees (it looked like all sites were). The bathhouse was clean, well-maintainted and the shower was hot! The lake has a area for swimming, as well as picnic tables for a picnic; and, of course, you can fish. There's a nice office/store with necessities, games, souvenirs, t-shirts and more. You can get a wi-fi connection for a small fee and check your email in at a spot near the office, or in the rec room. Bring quarters! The rec room has fussball, air hockey, two pool tables and games. They have a church service on Sunday mornings. There's an area for volleyball, another are for basketball. When I saw these amenities listed on the website, I was afraid it would be too 'commercialized' and busy. However, the sites are far enough from the lake, from the game area and the office and the RV and cabin areas that it was like being far back in the woods - but with the convenience of having the amenities close by. Bear Den is right on on the Blue Ridge Parkway and there are many things to see and do in the area. We will definitely go back, and highly recommend this place and its friendly and hard-working staff!

Bear Den Campground is a wonderful place where I feel completely connected to nature without losing the basic amenities I love, like hot showers and cell phone service! The people are very friendly and the children loved the gameroom and swimming pond!! I loved sitting by a fire and eating smores! This place is wonderful and I highly recommend it!!!

Been visiting this site for over 20 years. Nothings been changed except the addition of the cabins. Same ole' bathrooms with toilets that work half the time. However rates have over doubled in 20 years. Now they added a $2 a night pet fee for a campsite and went to a rate to charge more on weekends. Guess they think it's Disneyland..
