Welcome to Bear Creek Mountain Camping, where nature's beauty meets outdoor adventure! Nestled on the mountainside, our campground offers the perfect retreat for those seeking both serenity and excitement amidst the breathtaking beauty of the wilderness. At Bear Creek, we pride ourselves on offering an authentic mountain camping experience. Bring your own tent and supplies, and rent a designated site, or for a deeper immersion in nature, choose a spot in the woods. Whichever option you prefer, we are committed to ensuring you have a memorable camping experience from start to finish. Embark on invigorating hikes through lush forest trails, where the air is crisp and the scenery breathtaking. For those seeking aquatic excitement, tubing down the nearby Toe River promises an unforgettable experience, while fishing enthusiasts can cast their lines into pristine waters teeming with trout. As the day transitions to night, gather around the fire pit to roast marshmallows and share stories under the twinkling stars. The tranquil mountain backdrop sets the stage for moments of connection and relaxation with loved ones. But the adventure doesn't end there. Venture into the surrounding area and discover a wealth of activities, from gem finding expeditions to browsing charming art and antique shops showcasing local talent. Saddle up for a scenic horseback ride at a local ranch, or simply relax and take in the breathtaking scenery. Skiing slopes are about a 45–60-minute drive in the winter. Plus, don't miss out on the Penland School of Craft, a national craft education center dedicated to the creative life, located just 2.8 miles away—a mere 8 minutes from our doorstep! Our property boasts its own spring-fed water source, providing crisp, refreshing hydration throughout your stay. And for the ultimate connection with nature, our outdoor shower offers a revitalizing experience from May to November.

Nice host, just not primitive
Michelle was very hospitable. Unfortunately, the sites were not private as we had hoped based on pictures. We chose Primitive Site #1. We only stayed 1 night (out of 3) as she told us it would be full the next day. She is working hard on her campground, and some people may not mind the openness, it just isn’t what we have in mind when camping.

Great views - even better host!
Everyone of Michelle's site has a pretty view. She did a really great job of making sure every site is spacious and in its own area. The cabins are also so freakin cute. She built all of them by herself and I will forever be in awe of that. I honestly think Michelle herself might have been my favorite part of Bear Creek. I can't wait to bring friends back to stay in the cabins. (:

It was a lovely experience. I especially enjoyed the variability of the site, which allows you to "rough it" to whatever extent you want. It's a great location for kids.
