About this activity

Fancy having a family weekend away rather than a family day out? Check out Bear Den Campground because with 400 acres of wood, mountaintop acres adjoining the Blue Ridge Parkway, it's a pretty awesome spot to take the family!

Bear Den has hundreds of camping sites for families, whether you have a tent, or an RV. They have full hook up sites, as well as simple sites if you want to just get back to nature.

They even have rustic Campin' Cabins and Mountain View Villas for you if you want a bit more luxury to your stay! 

Bear Den has been giving families camping fun for over 50 years, so you know that's a LOT of happy families!

Bear Den has all the amenities you would want in a family campground to make your stay super fun. They have water, electricity, picnic tables and fire-rings at each campsite, and the RV sites have pull thrus too if you have a super big rig.

They have modern bath houses with coin operated washers and dryers, as well as hot showers (music to our ears!), and the super handy Trading Post with firewood, drinks, groceries, and camp supplies.

If you are a keen fishing family, then check out the lake perect for fishing (no licence needed in North Carolina) and it's a great place for those swimmers too. There is a sand beach too - who knew!

If you would prefer to get out onto the water itself, there are canoes and paddle-boats available for rent.

Kids have plenty to do, with ping-pong, shuffleboard, square dancing, basketball, horse shoes, volleybal, badminton...that's not even everything!

Family fun with this family operated campground perfect for your North Carolina adventure!
