Honey Bear is a beautiful place but unfortunately once you book a site you cannot count on getting that site when you arrive. For more years than we can count we have stayed at Honey Bear but never again. We made reservations back in January for our annual family camping trip and the morning we were leaving in August 1...

Honey Bear Campground *is* what a campground would be if a campground were run by creative liberal arts college students instead of fellow campers, business professionals, or landscapers. That can be good and bad. Traversing the roads to get there can be complicated depending on the size of your rig. We recommend going through NC 105 instead of the Blue... More

Never told about no cable tv. When arrived site pass taped to door (3pm) first night no cable thought I would get cable box next day. Next am was told they no longer have cable TV, just use your tablet. Well WiFi sucks big time. It kicks you off every few minutes because other people need to use it is... More

Thank you for your feedback on our campground and the items you found to be unsatisfactory with your stay. The Honey Bear staff strives to offer good customer service and yet we do realize some things may not have any sort of resolution you would be satisfied with. HBC management has decided to discontinue cable service throughout the campground and... More

The website makes the place look much better than it is. It is not as easily accessible to Boone as stated on the web, and you have to drive on a long and rather winding road to get there. We found the campground to be lacking in general maintenance. The electric pedestal at our site (A11) was falling apart and... More

Very convenient to lots of hiking on the Blue Ridge Parkway including Grandfather Mountain, Price Lake & Mones Cone Manor. We aren't big fans of "car camping" as we prefer to be in the woods, but the convenient location made up for it. Many tent sites were tiny and offered no privacy. However, most people seemed to disappear into their... More

First the good: The campground is conveniently close to Boone. There's a short distance of switchback driving required to reach the campground. The staff was friendly and helpful. One even opened the office after it had closed to make change for me for the laundry facilities. The restrooms and showers were generally clean, and the showers spacious. My main complaint... More

It pains me a little to write this review, as my family and I have been going to Honey Bear at least once a year for about 5 years, but I believe our most recent trip there will have been our last. My main issue is not with the campground itself as much as it is with staff and the... More

I wish when I had booked the trip to this campground, they had mentioned that they did not have cable. I saw a previous review and assumed that since they advertise Cable TV, that they would have it by the time I arrived. I like to watch the morning news with my coffee and mellow down right before bed time... More
