Bear Den

In case you missed it, we love to camp... We love any kind of camping... We love packing up backpacks and hitting the trail but also enjoy car camping from time to time as well, especially when we have the girls. We have several friends with smaller children too and if we want to camp as a group car camping works best!

One of our favorite places to car camp is Bear Den.

Bear Den is located off the Blue Ridge Parkway close to Spruce Pine, NC.

We reserve tent sites but they also have cute little cabins you can opt to stay in. It is a little more expensive per site then many other camp grounds near by but we have found it to be worth it!

It is a very quaint campground with lots to do. They have fishing, swimming nature trails, ping pong, shuffle board, playgrounds, basketball, volleyball, horse-shoes, bad mitten, a game room/arcade, etc. It is a great camping location for families with children!

We love the location, this campground is close to Asheville, Blowing Rock, Mount Mitchell, Linville, Grandfather Mountain, Little Switzerland, with so many more great area attractions! 

The camp sites are very nice and well maintained and generally will accommodate two tents each. All tent sites have a fire ring and a picnic table as well as level spots to set up your tent. Be sure to pack a jacket, even in the summer, the mountain evenings do get cooler and you will appreciate the warmth your jacket provides. Also don't forget the S'mores!!

Bear Den is one of our favorites! We hope you will head over for a visit and we are certain you will enjoy it as much as we do!

  1. Have you been on that hike from the campground to the waterfall that is on the property? If so how was it? Any pictures? The ran set in and we were not able to do that hike before we had to leave.
