Good things first...we stayed in the honeymoon suite. It was magnificent! The view, the bed, the hot tub, the bathroom and fireplace...wow! We travel quite a bit and this place was awesome! The staff was very accommodating and pleasant. Everthing was very clean. Downfalls...the rooms are paper thin. We could hear everything in the next room and a baby crying... More

We had our daughter's wedding here. It was so perfect and beautiful for the rustic lodge wedding that we were looking for. All the staff was so helpful with all our needs in decoration and any questions to have everything we wanted for a great wedding day!

We arrived at the log lodge on July 31 and left on August 3. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Even though the resort is going through foreclosure, the management who is in charge of keeping it going and getting it back in shape is doing a terrific job. The manager, John, was helpful on any questions we had... More

Stayed here over the Fourth of July. We loved it. Only downside was no cable and couldn't pick up any analog channels but we were camping so no need for TV. Manager John was so nice. We will be back soon.

My family, friends and I stayed at the Black Bear Cove resort over the 2014 Easter weekend in the RV section of the place. There were over forty (40) people in attendance for my "officially an old guy birthday" with check-in on Friday and departure on Sunday. We had reserved 7 RV sites last year while it was under the...

After watching this beautiful campground and lodge go downhill over the past few years from neglect, we were pleasantly surprised to find that the bank now owns the property and has a management company running it. We stayed at the campground. The new manager seems to be trying to get the place back to the gem it once was. They... More

We decided to visit BBCR for our 13 year anniversary. THE BAD- The web site was a little confusing to navigate and I ended up calling for more information. The web site says that all rooms have a jacuzzi tub and while this is true what it doesn't say is that some of them are large corner tubs in the... More

No response from my email request for reservations either by email or phone even after days and weeks. We stayed here several years ago and it was great. We stopped by this weekend on our way home from another camping trip to discuss a reservation. It is now an absolute mess! Completely abandoned at the campground. Everything is neglected. The...

We camped here several years ago and the place has really went down hill. The bathroom and shower facilities were nasty and were never cleaned the whole time we camped here. The pool filter was broke, but people continued to swim. Pool quickly became nasty. Either the owners don't care or don't have the money to keep the place up.... More

After finding this place by looking at Google maps (their advertising is non-existent), we were unable to make a reservation online so left a voice mail for, presumably, the owner. The message said he'd call back and he did. The owners are very hands-off. We pulled in early Friday evening, left early Sunday morning and never saw them. If there... More
