Blue Bear Mountain Camp
Ranked #1 of 1 Specialty Lodging in Todd
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 7, 2013

We ended up at Blue Bear Mountain Camp during the government shutdown in mid-October. We had planned to camp in the Great Smokies and found ourselves scrambling to find somewhere else to go. We couldn't have made a better choice! The camp is an easy drive to town but is located high up on a beautiful mountainside and makes you feel like civilization is worlds away. I loved that the RV sites were well separated from the tent sites, and the tent sites are so well-spaced that it's easy to forget that there's anyone else around... and those aren't even the remote sites! Our site (T6) was spacious and clean, with a nice level pad to pitch our tent on, picnic table, fire pit and grill. The bathrooms were, by far, the cleanest camp bathrooms I've ever seen and I was thrilled to find honest to god hot showers that didn't turn to ice by the time you put shampoo in your hair. Steve, the proprietor, was fantastic - friendly and helpful - and made you feel right at home.

The property is huge, with some great hiking trails starting just behind the campsites. If you're so inclined, you can stay at one of the remote sites accessed along these trails, and Steve will drive your gear out for you. There's a pretty little pond by the remote sites as well - definitely worth the hike, which was definitely more challenging than just a stroll in the woods.

We ended up here by pure dumb luck, but it would definitely be my first choice if we're in the area again.

We stayed for a week during the last week of October 2013. What a gorgeous place! Steve is a super nice guy and goes out of his way to make sure all of his guest are taken care of. Did I say this place was gorgeous! We camped in a 40ft fifth wheel on site C10. We woke up every morning to a breath taking view. Steve has everything you need and more on site. Shower were great but it sure was cold running back to the camper! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to experience the beautiful outdoors and get away from the stack em and rack type parks!
