Will definitely stay again. 4 sites with space between each site. Off the beaten trail, nice and quiet. The owner is wonderful, kind, and helps you get set up. - Robbie D

Very quiet 4-space park with ample space at your site; good, friendly service. The only reason I didn't rate 10 is a little tight for a 39'motorhome and have to unhook toad before campground about .5 mi away but a large church parking lot there. Beautiful calming creek right behind our site. Wifi excellent; full hookups and table with patio. We stayed 3 nights, cash or check only. - dirtfan1946

Only four spots which were all occupied. Very hospitable hosts. Close to Banner Elk which has lots to do. We have stayed here before and plan on staying again. - JERRY & ANN TARHEEL

We had a high site in a hilly park. A pleasant place to be. The wi fi was useless. The office person was in a hurry to get rid of us to the point of rudeness. The only really annoying thing was that the sewer connection was uphill which is always unpleasant. But overall, I would stay there again. - Russell G

We were camped backed up to a small creek. The sites were very close together. Cable TV requires a cable box so I didn't bother. The campground wasn't ideal for us, but I would stay again. - FSUWizard

Have stayed here many times both winter and summer, as we are big fans of this part of the country. Site was small for the M/H we have, but it worked out ok. Sewer hook up was quite higher then the site, so I had to support the hose for it to drain properly. Large park with lots of tents, but it was very quiet at night. Nice stream goes right through it, and there is fishing and gold panning next door. Propane just down the road and also ski rentals next door. Close to Boone, the Mast General Stores, Linville Caverns, Linville Falls and Grandfather Mountain. Try it, I think you will like it. - Joe-Sandy

Quite beautiful location and a wonderful creek runs thru the cg. Entering and leaving is dangerous. - Rcf0924

As first time campers we were fortunate enough to make this our home for a few weeks. It is a family run campground nestled in a hallow of mountains. A sweet little brook runs through the campground where if you are on that side of the camp site your fire pit sits so you can enjoy the sound of water. The laundromat is clean and has a nice big dryer that makes drying clothes an easy job. The lodge is quaint, with a huge stone fire place where they have comfortable chairs and couch for your comfort. The front porch has several rocking chairs where people gather to share chit chat and coffee. The staff is excellent, willing to help you with your camper if you need it, emptying the trash can that sits on your site, and they are super friendly. It would be nice if they had a fenced area for dogs but not sure where they would put it as most all the area has something it is used for. They have events that go on at holiday times, however we were not there for that. As others said the drive way is tough to get out of, but the way I look at, that campsite was there before long before the intense traffic. We are going back this summer....hope to see you there. - HarmonyLady

As others have said, tricky navigating on or off the highway. An added obstacle is the "speed bump" just at the entrance, which may easily re-arrange your refer and/or your clothes closet. It's a nice old park with many sites along a brook, but only a handful of the bigger rigs can get next to it. Our space (#90) the fire ring was under our camper so it was unusable and we had about 2' behind us and our nose was hanging a bit out in the roadway. It's only a 36' motorhome. We had to squeeze our toad into the space between our motorhome and the camper next to us, which fortunately was not occupied the three days we stayed there. We might stay there again. - g peter

We stayed here mid-week and had our choice of several spots on the lake. We did not make a reservation. Very quiet. Lots of trees and huge shrubs. Pretty view. - June from Savann ahb

We only live 30 minutes away, and have camped in this park at various times for many years. Our trips have been in Tents, Pop-ups, Trailers, and now a Class A Motorhome. As with many Federal Parks, there are no hookups although water and sewer dump facilities are available nearby. Our best memories, however, have been camping here watching Deer, Star-gazing, Canoeing, Hiking, and generally unwinding. The Boone Fork Trail meanders through the campground, and includes a five mile loop that includes some of the most beautiful creeks and waterfalls around. If you are into amenities, go somewhere else. If your objective is to commune with nature and regenerate, this is the place to be. - bpsprinkle

This park is just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. There are no hookups. The park has a nice lake, with limited sites that have a view of it. There are lots of trees, underbrush and bugs. The camp sites are small, many too small for large RV's. Otherwise, bath-house is okay, roads and sites are paved. We stayed here for 3 days. Due to small sites, them being overgrown and no services, I would look elsewhere next time. - NCRambler

Truly a wonderful place to hook up for the weekend and enjoy some peace and quiet. Great facilities and close to blowing rock and downtown boone. Extremely nice staff with a great inside family room with some coffee options. Definitely will be back - andrew peterson

Really good value. Staff was so friendly and helpful, and the bath house and laundry room was kept clean. Water pressure was good. Tent sites were relatively private compared with other area campgrounds, although could have been more separation between them. Campers were mostly families and 99% were good neighbors. There were no radios playing or anything like that which was nice. It was very quiet except for one irresponsible dog owner who let his dog bark all night long, but that was the exception - the rest were very well behaved. You have to buy their firewood - they don't allow you to bring in your own . They have a mini-zoo with alpaca and goats, etc, pond, great for kids. I highly recommend and would stay there again. - Mel7

This was our second time staying at Honeybear. We really enjoy this park and have not had a bad experience here. Our site was very spacious and private. The roads into and around the campground could use some work, but it's a minor issue for us. Honeybear has exceeded our expectations on both visits. The staff if very accommodating and the sites are well spaced. We will return to Honeybear Campground! - JandJ TN Travelers

We got all setup and after discussing the situation, we went looking for another campground. The campground is run by a very nice elderly woman who is in way over her head. The office is one of the worst messes I have ever seen. I was uncomfortable even being there. The utilities were awful. The sewer connection was several inches below ground level. The water connection was covered by a barrel, and when I removed the barrel to hook up I found a hideous mess of insulation apparently protecting the pipe. There were nasty looking RVs on each side of us that appeared to be permanent residents. We found another place to stay. I do not recommend this place. - FSUWizard

This is a convenient small campground for Boone and the surrounding area. Many campers seemed to be permanent. We stayed for a week. The weekly price has risen but the owner hasn't updated the website. Our spot was shady, under a big tree, and the birds were singing all the time; it was beautiful. The concrete patio was nice to have. We were satisfied with the site, however the rest of the campground needs upgrading. The bathrooms, showers and laundry room were pretty bad: dirty, smelly, no light in the women's part and no window, the office was cluttered and very smelly and there was a smell of stagnant water in general. Besides that the owner was helpful in everything she could. The highlight: excellent wifi ! - AandWK

Stayed at Vanderpool for a couple days. Owner is nice older lady but overwhelmed by the place.
Grass is nice, spaces are large with nice concrete pad, fire ring, picnic table, water, sewer, electric, both 30 and 50 amp.
The cable TV was not active and we could only get 4 channels on OTA all being PBS ones. :(
There as free Wi-Fi onsite which was decent. The system was being upgraded and had some issues but seemed good overall.
There is a nice recycle facility just a mile up, north on 421 on the right, from the RV park which is nice as we try to recycle everything.
The location is close to downtown Boone. That mean going anywhere you drive through downtown. Cute but slow.
Seemed to be more long stay, 1-3 month, guys than daily or weeklies. there were no arrivals on the weekend we stayed which was strange as the weather was GREAT.
The office was a combo retail store and hoarder decor with a bit of a smell we could not ID.
She has a big older dog that is harmless but big so let kids know this when you walk in office.
Overall a nice place to stay a day or two but most likely not return. - carl2591

What we liked: KOA discount, pool (didn't use due to weather), location of campground, easy to navigate to Boone. The check in staff was friendly, but that was our only interaction with staff. What we didn't like: Roads to campsites are gravel and somewhat rutted. The campground is built on a hillside so the sites are "terraced". When it rains, which it did while we were there, water runs downhill and creates ruts in the roads and through the campsites. Roads and sites appeared to need maintenance. The sites were not level, not exceptionally long or wide. There wasn't a lot of room to park a tow vehicle. - behindthewheel

This park is small in every way a park can be. Few sites, small sites, and congested traffic. Sites are poorly leveled and not well cleaned between campers. When we arrived, a children's day camp was ending for the day and parents were parked everywhere to pick up kids. During the day, the playground was not open to my grandchildren. The office was covered up with non-campers and there was no place to park. Is this a campground or a kindergarten? They are doing a poor job of trying to be both. The view is nice and the location is convenient to Boone and the Blue Ridge Parkway. I would go back there if I could not find anything else. The sites are small, too small for an RV and a tow vehicle. My Class C fit in the site but the Class A that pulled in later could not get around my car and it could not fit into the assigned site. They left. If you stay, be prepared to get friendly with your neighbors. They will be close. - FromSC

Nice campground nestled in the mountains near Boone NC. Our wooded site was level and plenty big for our 45' coach and tow vehicle. WiFi was spotty even though we were right in front of the office. Otherwise no complaints. We'll definitely come back and explore the area more. - rd9999

This is beautiful park! The majority of the sites are occupied by seasonal residents, but they are beautifully kept. There are flowers and lush grass everywhere. The sites are all concrete pads and I think they all have full hookups. They have a large laundry with washers and dryers both at $1.50. The cost of the site varies with the length of your rig. At 33' we got the lower rate. I'm not sure why that matters! The sites alternate on the roads, so you are not right next to your neighbor. They have lots of great space for walking dogs with lots of doggie dump receptacles. You do have to drive 5 or 10 miles to most stores, but there are a few restaurants not far away. It's the closest campground to the Grandfather Mountain entrance. The Verizon signal is fairly weak and doesn't support data, but the campground wifi is pretty good most of the time, which is unusual. They do not accept credit cards, so bring your checkbook. - mom2wildlife

The campground is next to a small river. The pads are all level concrete. There are a lot of seasonal but they are well kept. The park is quiet. Water and electric are good. There are activities at the clubhouse. - esta34950

All in all, this is a nice park. Level, clean, quiet, utility connections in the right place and utilities worked well, including WIFI with our signal amplifier. Staff and neighbors were very pleasant. On the down side, there is no actual sewer system. The park is maintained with two septic systems - one for the laundries and one for the RV sites. Consequently, customers are prohibited from using their on-board washers and are required to use the park's commercial laundry. Also, even though they charge a premium price, they do not accept credit cards. Location is a bit remote. To access most services you will need to travel to Newland, Spruce Pine, or Boone. - ramblin' vagabonds

What a gem! One of those places you kinda' don't WANT to review, because you'd rather keep it quiet!
It's a treacherous drive up the last mile or so to get to the campground. It's basically a one lane steep, windy, gravel and dirt road with very few opportunities to move out of the way of another vehicle. But.... if you're willing to do that, the payoff is so worth it! Just DON'T miss the left turn into the campground and go too far.... it'll be tough to get back there!
The one ONLY other downside is that there are no water hookups at the sites.... but the staff will help you fill up on the way in and then if you run out, they will assist with helping to run hoses to you for refilling. Obviously there's also no sewer hookups.... but they will arrange pump out service.... it's $40.... so choose wisely!
The campground is VERY tenter heavy and GREAT for hiking. The weekends are FULL.... but it's so spacious etc that the only real downside was that the shower house had pretty long lines with all those tenters on the weekend days. The bath house is immaculate as is the rest of the property!
It's like sleeping in the clouds.....literally on SOME days! It was just spectacular though! Mountains all around.... warm summer breezes and cool nights! AMAZING escape from the heat and humidity of Florida! And we saw lightning bugs, chipmunks and even a hummingbird! Very cool! - doggpurr

When we arrived I found out that due to my negligence I did not notice when booking that the campsites did not have water a each site. Only electricity. Our camper has never had the fresh water tanks filled so we were not going to take a chance on contamination or it having leaks. The owners were very nice and understood my decision to cancel the reservation. They still charged me the cancellation fee but that was to be expected and I did not argue as it was my fault. On another note!! Please be advised that this campground name has mountain in it. That being said we were pulling a 32 ft trailer with our F250 and it was a struggle to get it up to the campground. Once you get off the highway from Boone the road is gravel up to Blue Bear CG. One other word of caution. Do not miss the turn as there is no sign that tells you the turn off goes to your campground. You have to know the road name and be watching for it diligently. The second we realized we missed the turn it was too late and drove 3 miles looking for a place to turn around on this narrow two lane road. I finally gave up and stopped in the middle of the road and backed up on to a side road to turn around. They could use a sign just before the turn if it was permissible. I'm sure it would have been a pleasant stay if you did not need the convenience of water on your site. - Bill from Texas

This is a fairly new park in the Boone area. The sites are very roomy. Lots of space between them. The bathhouse was very clean and well-maintained. There was a laundry facility and outside sink for cleaning dishes. The tent sites were very isolated. The owner will assist with hauling your gear to the remote sites. Lots of trails to explore. Stocked trout pond. No water at RV sites but, this was not a big issue for us. The owner delivered our firewood to our site. Very nice guy! We are planning to stay here again when we come to this area. The road into the campground from the main road was tight in places but still manageable. Stargazers will be in heaven here. - Henwilli

Beautiful campground, well kept and clean. Good bit of the campground is occupied by seasonals who have their same sites yearly. The seasonals do a splendid job of beautifying their campsites. Check in was really easy, find your site and set up camp. The owner will stop by eventually to welcome you and provide any service you request. Sites have FHUs and plenty of room to park vehicles. Washers and dryers are clean and efficient. WiFi was spotty and not consistent. Cell service was weak. We stayed for a week. - Nautilus

Pull thru site, easy to level on grass. Appeared to be mostly seasonal campers but the ones I had contact with were friendly. We had a bear of a time finding this campground even though we were perhaps close a couple of times (you may not want to trust your GPS completely on this one). Was told they had wi-fi at the meeting room but did not try it out. - 2mainiacs

We had a pull through, full hookups for our RV. We had to level the RV on a grassy area. There was a nice concrete pad that served as a patio for the picnic table and our chairs that was very nice. The laundry room was very clean and a washer/dryer was always available when needed. There is an 'arcade' building that contains exercise equipment, pool table, foosball table, croquet equipment, and pinball machines, which we didn't use but if we had children with us, it would have been great! There are a lot of RV'ers who have reserved the riverside spaces year-round, so we had to settle for a space along the road, but we nevertheless had a great view. The staff is extremely nice and servicing, and we were very pleased with our stay. Unfortunately, the wireless is not the best since the campground is nestled among mountains, but it is acceptable. The owner of the campsite lives on the foothills of the mountain and makes himself available to resolve any issues you may encounter. We would stay here again if we are ever in the area, and we highly recommend this campground. There is no sign that tells you in advance of the campground, so make sure you are not just relying on your GPS but be on the lookout for the campground. - Ferdy
