This was a great campground. Unfortunately we only spent 1 night here, but would have loved to stay longer. We would definitely return. Yes, the road in and out is a little harrowing and the roads inside were tight. We have a 30ft with a car hauler. We didn't want to have to drop the car due to it only being 1 night. The people were very accommodating and provide a big enough campsite and escort to site. Also, we walked to get firewood and they gave us a ride back to site in golf cart due to our age and the big hill and it getting late. Nicest people and quiet and scenic campground.

This is a nice park -- I marked it as big rig access but you should know that the road to the campground is gravel. Maybe big rig access but not big rig friendly. Interior roads are narrow and there are tight turns in the campground. It would be very helpful if there was an escort for big rigs. The staff is very friendly and helpful but the desk clerk apparently was not familiar with the interior of the park. We camped at Bear Den Campground in a Motorhome.Undo

We arrived on a Friday afternoon. We were in the B section of the campground. The check in process was smooth and the employees were very friendly. The site was fairly level and large enough for our camper and a tent. The sites were fairly close together, however, we still felt that we had our privacy. The only complaint here is that nobody showed us to our campsite so we went in the wrong way due to not so great signage. Other than that we had a very pleasant stay here. We would stay again just because the staff was so nice and the grounds were so clean and well kept. We camped at Bear Den Campground in a Travel Trailer.Undo

There are quite a few pluses for this campground: the staff is extremely nice and helpful, family friendly and the kids love the amenities, and it's in a beautiful area of the blue ridge mountains. That said, there are some minuses: the power quality is low (my meter had swings from 120 - 96v), leveling at the sites can be hard, if not impossible, and the restrooms could/should have been cleaned more often. I don't know if we would stay here again. Perhaps if other options weren't available. We camped at Bear Den Campground in a Travel Trailer.Undo

We have stayed here three times and we love it! Lovely views, large campsites, and everyone is really nice. Right on the Blue Ridge Parkway too. We camped at Bear Den Campground in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

First the good. This campground location is great, has a very remote feeling with nice views. Access is off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Now for the bad. Access is marginal for big rigs, not all sites are level, bathroom facilities are very marginal and dirty, and they charge extra for Wi-Fi service. The price of $45 per night is way too high for what you get. There are better options in the area for less money. We will not return. We camped at Bear Den Campground in a Motorhome.Undo

Well, this is a strange review. I've stayed at this campground for many many years, but due to the outdated bathrooms and high cost of a night I decided to visit another campground this year. I have to say that my steering somewhere else this year, really made me realize how poorly maintained this campground is. The bathrooms are very outdated. Water and sand always on the floor. Toilets always plugged up. Many sites are unlevel. You have to pay for internet by the day. These are good people running this campground and the location is to die for, but this campground is overpriced for what they are offering. The only thing they kept up with the times on, was the pricing. We camped at Bear Den Campground in a Tent Trailer.Undo

Nice Campground, but didn't realize you have to drive approx. half a mile on a narrow winding road to get to the campground itself. On the back in sites the water hook-up is pretty far away. Nice location on the parkway, close to a lot of different attractions, have nice hiking trails also. For families with children a nice place to stay. The staff is friendly and accommodating to the customer. We camped at Bear Den Campground in a Travel Trailer.Undo

We've traveled to this campground for over 15 years. Year after year we come back because of the large wooded sites and the location on the Parkway. We also love the ease of getting to it off i-40. We were happy to see a new sand box for the kids in the C/D area. It was huge and a big hit for kids of all ages. My chief complaint here is the lack of updating of the bathrooms. Still no progress there and it seems like every three hours the toilets are plugged. While the staff did a good job of unplugging them it seemed like a neverending job. Maybe they should put a plunger in the stall. If the campground would spend some effort on updating the bathhouses, my rating would go from a 6 to a nine or ten.

We visited this campground again. Not much has changed from the previous year. No updates to the bath-houses or anything else for that matter. The owners seem to be investing in their full cabins. However, the bathhouses were the cleanest I have ever seen. Very clean and spotless. Would be nice to see them install some permanent grills at the sites and do some updating.

There were 3 RV's and we stayed there a week. The park has dusty mountainous gravel roads. They wet them on weekends but not during the week & it's really dusty. The sites are small and a bit difficult to manuver. We have a 30' RV and couldn't park our tow vehicle on our site without being in the road. Luckily we were the only ones on that particular loop so it wasn't an issue. Since we were staying a week we picked this park because it's on of the few along the parkway with full hookups. The problem with the sewer hookups is that the sites aren't level and the sewer connection is on the high side and protrudes about 4" above grade so when you add the 90º fitting you're 6 to 8" above the ground. For those of us with low profile RV's the RV sewer outlet is lower than the site inlet. Just something to be aware of if you have a low sewer outlet. All the staff was very nice except one guy, and once we talked to management about him, there were no more issues. Their site says that have a place for swimming but I wouldn't consider it.

Staff was very friendly at check in. Wi-FI access is new at this campground but only available at the front and $5 for first day or $10 for length of stay. Bathrooms and showers are dated but were clean this time around. Still think that the campground is overpriced. We camped at Bear Den Campground in a Tent Trailer.Undo

The good include, great location for exploring areas around the Blue Ridge Parkway, lots of room for hiking, biking and dog walks right out your door. Weekdays were very quiet, pleasant, and there is a fulltime security guard. The bad include, management will tell you they are big rig friendly but the access is horrible, includes rough gravel roads, steep inclines, narrow passage and hairpin turns. I did not see any larger class A's here, for good reason. The pull thru site I had put my canopy over the gravel road so made for an uncomfortable outdoor area with no privacy when cars going down the road. I also had to wet down my section of the gravel road because the dust was so bad. The beautiful looking lake in the advertising was actually a disgusting alge pit and my neighbor said his kids stank after swimming in it. We camped at Bear Den Campground in a Motorhome.Undo

Road could use some work, but isn't the camp's fault. Just a tad difficult to access, but if you had already climbed the mountain to get there what's a bit more? WiFi is extra and only works at gate. Overall a nice large facility. Gravel sites, water is quite far in some and turns can be tight. Showers/Restrooms could use some work. We camped at Bear Den Campground in a Motorhome.Undo
