A peaceful stay by a private lake

This was an absolutely beautiful spot. We were the only campers there and essentially had the small lake to ourselves. The hosts' directions were clear -- they live on site, but check in is contactless and we didn't see them at all so it felt very private. The toilet is a porta potty but utterly immaculate and equipped with a cute little sink with soap and towel supplied. We were only there a short time as this was just a stop through town to visit with a friend in Raleigh while we are on a two-month road trip. We opted to host our friend and her kids at the lake because it was so beautiful with plenty of seating around a fire pit. If you need electric/water, it is available but not right next to the place where you'd likely want to set up so a longer extension cord/hose is helpful.

Joanne's property is so pretty! Even though the RV site is closest to the house, you'd never know it during your stay. It felt completely private, and is so quiet. This was our third time staying, and we enjoy it every time!

Great spot for group camping! We had a group of 6 adults with three tents and had room to spread out, set up a cooking area, and the firepit. The lake is beautiful! And the grounds are well tended. The neighborhood roosters are very early risers, but otherwise it was quiet. We brought kayaks and rented the paddle boat to be out on the lake, which was really nice. Even caught a few small fish! So glad we stayed at Bell Lakes.

We enjoyed our stay at Bell Lakes. The host Joanne met us at the site as soon as we arrived and was very welcoming! We had the clear side of the pond to ourselves and it was relaxing and peaceful. It was also nice to be allowed to bring our kayaks which we enjoyed. We definitely want to come back again sometime! On the way out I was headed to the sunroom to sign us out but the host’s dad told us not to worry about it so hope I’m not in trouble for that lol.
