I have stayed at Honey Bear many times. We stumbled upon it accidentally when the park campground we planned to stay in wasn't open. Since then it has been my go-to place to stay when visiting Boone. I have had nothing but positive experiences at the campground. The folks in the office are always very friendly and accomodating. The bath house is always clean and much nicer than any I have come across at State/National park campgrounds. Each tent site has a picnic table and fire ring. Some sites are a little smaller than others, but the office staff have always been great about getting me set up with a site that will accomodate our gear and vehicle when I call to reserve by phone. They also provide pictures of each site on their website.
The campground is very close to downtown (maybe 5-7 minutes away). There are lots of good options for hiking and mountain biking nearby as well.
