“Great stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

Great stay at this weekend! Everyone was so nice and friendly. Our stay even included a ride to the parts store when our car died and we needed a new battery. We'll definitely be back and hopefully for longer next time. Very family friendly, onsite coffee shop, clean bathhouse, gameroom, volleyball, cornhole. Fall festival, pumpkin patch, haunted trail. great fun for everyone!

Room Tip: "the field" otherwise known as overflow was nice and grassy. Nice area, would be great fo...

We spent two nights in Honey Bear. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The campground is at about 3500 ft elevation, so is nice and cool. Our campsite was completely surrounded by a rhododendron thicket and was really pretty. Our camper is only 18ft, so we had plenty of room, and it was very easy to back in. There were lots of children (Friday night) but there are so many thick bushes, is still was reasonably private. There's only one bath house and is was a bit of a trek. It's kept very clean, but is pretty basic, and I'd guess will be updated soon. It's easy to miss the turnoff of Rt 105 so watch for it, and the mile and a half is indeed twisty 'till you get to the campground road. There were enough big rigs there that I know it's not really a problem, but you do have to take your time. I'd certainly stay there again.

This is the worst campground I ever stayed in. We went there as a group and were scattered all over the campground. The sites were reserved in March and this should not have happened. The read getting into the campground is NOT RV friendly hairpin curves in a small two lane road. The Campground sign is not along the road but sets back to the right and can easily be missed and little or no room to turn around on this type of road. My site was not level and never could get the RV level. Needless to say we will never stay there again.

Room Tip: I do not recommend this campgrounds

My fiance and I stayed at Honey Bear Campground for a 2013 Labor Day weekend getaway. We arrived late and after a very easy check-in we set up our campsite to the sound of live music (the singer was very talented- I wished we had gotten there earlier). We were on site B15, on a beautiful creek and near the bridge that crosses over to the restrooms. My only complaints with Honey Bear was that B15 is the "cut through" site to get to the bridge, which is understandable. But, it would be better if there was a clearly marked path for people from other sites to use to get to the bridge. Also, we discovered when we returned Sunday from hiking, after a tremendous downpour of rain, that the excessive water runoff flows right through the middle of site B15. We'd bought new outdoor carpet to put outside our camper and it had a mud mark through the middle where the water flowed. There may be opportunity for improving drainage around this site, but again, we've had a summer of record rainfall, so this may have been an unusual circumstance. Next visit we will pick sites B14 or B16. The restrooms were large and clean. The activities available for kids were great- all kinds of games available, arts & crafts, a fishing pond, a cool tree swing, and outdoor movies at night. Although, we didn't have our kids with us on this trip, we will surely bring them next visit! Saturday morning I realized I'd forgotten to pack coffee. Not a problem at Honey Bear- they have a coffee cafe on site! Even better- you can "text to order" coffee, ice, firewood, longer cable wire to hook up the TV so we could watch the football game, anything you need and they will deliver it to your campsite! They also came around several times a day to pick up trash- just put your trash bag at the road and they carry it off! The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We'd like to give Luke a special thanks for his hiking suggestions- Hebron Falls was beautiful, despite the rain. We had a wonderful weekend. The service and hospitality at Honey Bear was fabulous, we will definitely stay again on our next visit to Boone, NC!

My husband and I camped at honeybear for 10 days in July 2013. I found the new owners (Barb, Carl, Kim and Sky) to be friendly and welcoming to guests. There were plenty of daily and evening activities to keep everyone busy. Young college age staff were adorable, helpful and friendly. Rest rooms and grounds were very clean. The Sunday night cookouts ( open to everyone in the campground) were special times to relax and get to know the staff. Have already booked another trip for next summer.

Room Tip: Camping sites on the creek are my favorite.

We spent 4 nights camping at Honey Bear Campground in our truck camper this August. The camp office is very nice and there is a little coffee cafe attached with a beautiful lounge area and big screen TV to use. The staff was always very friendly and helpful with any questions we had. The sites are all nestled deep in the woods and surrounded by mountain laurel. The sites are so shaded that it seems dark all the time! There is a large bath house with spacious showers, and there is also a small laundry room in the bath house. It seems to be a very family oriented campground in that there are lots of games for kids to play at the office. The office also has a DVD sign out with lots of movies to choose from. Overall our stay was very nice and we would definitely stay here again!

Honey Bear had very friendly staff and offered daily activities for the kids. The tent sites were roomy but some of the RV sites were very close together. Most of the sites were shaded. Would stay there again.
