Bear Den Campground’s Trading Post has all the groceries, ice, drinks, firewood, souvenirs and just about every camping supply you could need. We also have LP Gas, modem hookups and sanitary disposal stations.

Bear Den Campground and cabin guests love our lake for swimming, fishing and canoeing. We have a sandy beach and playground, so the whole family can have a fun get-away in the NC Mountains. Bring your pole - no North Carolina fishing license needed.

Paddle boats and canoes are available for rent plus Bear Den offers basketball, badminton, volleyball, shuffleboard and horse shoe courts, playground and a game room with pool and arcade games.

*Bear Den's campground and rental cabins are open from the first week in March through November 30 - weather permitting. Early spring and late fall in the NC high mountains are tricky to predict. Select Cabins are available for rental year-round.

Awesome get away!!! Campground is very well maintained and spectacular views of the mountain with awesome hiking trails, fishing, and swimming. The best thing about this place is the staff. Very hospitable and willing to help with anything you may need. My wife dropped her cell phone in the fishing lake and they came and helped me with a net find it and even gave us a bag with rice to put it in. Definitely our favorite campground yet!!!

This was a very nice campground. The staff couldn't have been nicer, and the facilities were great. The campsites are a bit close together, but there are a lot of trees which add to the feeling of privacy. The bath houses are very nice and super clean. There's plenty to do both at the campground and in the surrounding area. We brought my daughter and her friends for her 13th birthday and they had a blast!

We camped here for 4 days and we loved every second of it. The camp sites were very spacious and clean and the bathrooms had nice hot water. Also, they have very wonderful, friendly staff that were very helpful. We will definitely be coming back.

Great campground, nicely laid out, plenty of activities for the family. Really enjoyed our time there. It is a great 'base camp' for many of the awesome things to see & do in the area. Staff was nice, welcoming and professional. Bathrooms were clean.

We enjoyed our stay. It is a clean quiet campground with several options for activities. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. The general store was also very reasonably priced on last minute needed items.
