No Noise, Friendly Host, Love The Setting. The Cable TV about drove us nuts, worked or did not work. you never knew from one minute to the next if you would have a picture. NOTE: They are doing a lot of upgrading in the campground. We will be happy to camp there the next time we are in Boone. We camped at Honey Bear Campground in a Travel Trailer.

In spite of torrential rains, our site (C-4) never flooded. The WiFi was spotty. it was steady when it worked, but it was too weak to connect to two of the six days we were there. The roads were rutted from the rain, and the sites a little less level than I'd like. I was able to level the motorhome using leveling blocks and the jacks, and all four wheels still touched ground. Gravel sites. The sites aren't big, but certainly adequate and not shoved together. There is no store and the office and coffee shop had odd and sparse hours. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, from check-in through the entire stay. We wil probably stay here again. We camped at Honey Bear Campground in a Motorhome.

Awful bath house with dribbling shower. But very good wi-fi. We camped at Honey Bear Campground in a Motorhome.

We have been RVing in North Carolina for the last four years and our trips always include stays at Honey Bear Campground. The length of our stay has grown increasingly longer, from one week up to four months, so it is clear that we really enjoy Honey Bear! The setting is beautiful with lots of trees and a pretty mountain stream. It is very quiet and you really feel like you are away from all the hustle and bustle, though it is a short drive to all the conveniences the area has to offer. There are many great things to do in the area from driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway to hiking the trails to visiting the nearby wineries. The staff at Honey Bear is always very pleasant and they go out of their way to be helpful. The facilities are always sparkling clean. The coffee shop is great. Internet access is provided at the campsites. There is plenty of space for kids to run, while still allowing for quiet areas at the campsites. There are lots of weekend activities to keep the quests entertained. We love Honey Bear and can’t wait for our annual return. We camped at Honey Bear Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very quiet campground. We stayed here while visiting local attractions like Tweetsie Railroad and Blowing Rock. Campground was clean and well kept. They had video games and movies on Friday/Saturday. They were also giving out free root beer floats and vanilla lattes. The only issues we had was that our site was not exactly level and narrower than expected. They had a ton of magnolia trees providing lots of shade. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Honey Bear Campground in a Motorhome.

Our group of seven camped here for a week, our second time at this campground. We LOVE this place. Sites can be small and unlevel, but the staff was great. They assisted us in backing in for a couple of tight spots. It rained a lot, and some sites could really use some more gravel to help with drainage. Cable worked great, Wi-Fi was not great, but better than last time. Had an issue with a dryer not working well, they refunded our money. The stream and shade here are just amazing. We used the coffee bar behind the office as our group hangout spot during the rain, worked out great. We camped at Honey Bear Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We enjoy the cool mountain air with lots of mature trees - 15 degrees cooler than July at home in the DC area! WiFi better than most, maybe because an antenna is mounted on a tree across the drive. But, they must have good band width because throughput is good all times of day. This is a hilly park accessed via a narrow road with switch-backs from the main Hwy (105). Few pull-throughs (some are parallel to driveways): think twice if you have a very big rig. Many fifth-wheels and motor homes have made it in. Convenient to downtown Boone and nearby, mountain attractions. The camp has a funky name and the city is named after pioneer Daniel Boone, but it has a lot of cosmopolitan amenities as well as country / bluegrass music. My neighbor is here for a 2 month stay and his advance reservation was not honored for his choice of site, but staff delivered some gravel to fix a muddy area next to his RV. We got a 10% military discount; no other discounts. On-line reservation system not well designed, especially for low band-width access: better to call. We would come here again.

Very nice setting. We were there early in the season and it was private. Pretty fishing pond that was catch and release. Grounds were nicely landscaped. Many sites were carved out of the hillsides and there was still work to do. The owner was very nice and welcomed us and provided a lot of local information. Bathrooms/showers were very nice and clean, too. The cons were roads in the park were in bad shape-rutted and steep in areas. Hook ups located in rear of site, not fifth wheel friendly. This was the rule not the exception. Water pressure was really bad at the site, fine at the bath house. Dog area there, but you could not get into it. Luckily, there were manor places to walk and we were well equipped with doggie bags. Not the worst place that we encountered. We will return. We camped at Honey Bear Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Loved this campground but had a couple of gripes. The bad: we were a day late arriving because we had RV problems and they would not credit us for the lost deposit - this was just ridiculous. So we paid for 3 days instead of the 2 we were there. Also, they are in the process of upgrading some of their facilities. Ffor example, the laundry has 2 ancient washers and one was broken. BUT here are the good things: the park has a lot of charm. There are lots of bushes and trees and the multilevel layout gives each site a private feeling. The nice stream has several hand-made wooden bridges crossing it lined with LED lights. There is a fishing pond. Good areas for dog walking or for kids to run around. Hook-ups are so-so. Water pressure was really poor. This area has a lot to offer and there are many hikes and activities close by. I would stay here again. We camped at Honey Bear Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for 3 different weekends in July. Looked at all the choices in Boone area for campgrounds and this was by far the best choice. The road from Hwy 105 to campground can be a little tricky - but easily done. They have a main lodge area, game room, nice pond, and plenty of room to let our dogs run - open field near front! The new owners are fantastic. Changes being made already and they are doing it right. Excellent customer service. Our electric box had weak breaker when we hooked up 9 PM, and they sent someone right out to replace it. Across the street, they forgot the cable hookup and they brought them one right away. Ice and firewood delivered to your campsite. Saturday night movies on big screen in the main field and campfire for families - had 75 plus at the movie this weekend. Some sites are tricky to get into and some are uneven, but again they are making the investment to keep this our favorite spot in the Boone area! We camped at Honey Bear Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This place is in a nice location and is clean, but needs a lot of help in several areas. The hook ups in some sites are in bad locations. Some sites are very unlevel. The washer dryers are terrible. The office needs to get organized. There is also a older woman which needs some customer service lessons. Because the hookups are in bad locations, you will have to borrow sewer hose and electric extension cords. I gave them a 10 dollar deposit on a electric cord. When I returned it they said I never gave them any deposit. The old woman got huffy and said I did not have time for this and then slapped 10 dollars on the counter. I will explore other options in the area if I return. We camped at Honey Bear Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is our 2nd time at this campground and we asked(back in March) for a 50 amp site. We reserved a week and so this gave us the weekly rate, but no other discounts. The grounds are clean and quiet. Neighbors we've had are nice. I gave this an 8 because we don't use the bathrooms or the laundry--we have our own--and we use our own Wi-Fi. There are brand new owners and if they continue the traditions of old, they'll do OK. Just off 105 and if you've had mountain experience you'll have no trouble getting here. Our total length is about 53(36 for the rv; then the truck). Our site is back-in. It is very close to attractions, grocery, and we will stay here again. The dumpster is on one's way out of the campground. The office is helpful about attractions and even has tickets for some venues. We camped at Honey Bear Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

There is nice management. The baths are clean. The last mile of road to access is not the best, very curvy, but doable. It is a great location near Boone and Parkway. We camped at Honey Bear Campground in a Motorhome.

The location of this campground was great. Most of the campsites are located in the woods with lots of tree cover. Our site had a small stream directly behind the site which the kids played in. The site was a bit small (10x30) but that was explained in the site description. It was a bit close for my liking to the neighboring camper. The sites were not perfectly level but close enough with some leveling boards. It was a stretch for my sewer hose to reach the connection so I had to use an extension. Not all sites are this way but ours was. The main reason for the somewhat low score was the power. With nothing hooked up we had around 114 volts. With my AC on it dropped quite a bit and once the water heater came on it dropped to around 103-105 volts. I had to turn off the water heater. I asked the office about it and they told me their service does not support electric water heaters. For a full service site this should not have been an issue. There was a small bridge next to my site that had lights on it during the night. These lights, while nice to look at, were plugged into my outlet which drew about 4 volts when they were on. The roads can be a bit tricky to navigate. Some are very steep inside the campground. Overall the campground was nice and I will probably return. The kids (plus me and my wife) loved the huge tree swing near the entrance. There is a small fishing pond on site as well. You would never know you were within 3 miles of downtown Boone.

This campground was a real gem. We were here only 2 nights but the sights are well graveled and the staff friendly. Very close to Boone off Hwy 105--about a mile in to the campground and 7 miles from Blowing Rock. Be careful of your GPS as ours took us downtown Blowing Rock and then off Schull's Mills Road and by Hounds Ears Golf Club and Resort--this is an extremely harrowing road for a 35 foot 5th wheel and big truck. You'd be better off calling for directions or going by a map. It made the mile in off 105 to the campground a real breeze to traverse by comparison. The only drawback is this park only has 4 50 amp hookups--granted, it was cool and we ate outside most of the time and probably only needed 30 but talking with people we met, it had been muggy and hot before we arrived. We'd definitely stay here again--and for much longer. We camped at Honey Bear Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
