If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Bell Lake Estate was such a beautiful and private location for us to set up camp with the family. The kids were able to fish, have a campfire, and sleep under the stars. Located close to the Raleigh area so Bell Lake Estate is perfect for quick camping trip. We will definitely be back when time permits. Thank you!
Secluded family fun
A fun, secluded get away that is close to town. The Campsites are large and spaced out, so you feel like you have the entire place to yourself. There are kayaks, pedal boats and fishing boats available on site. Each of the kids were able to catch fish, see turtles and run around the farm. They were also able to ride their bikes around the farm without worrying about cars. This is a much better option to state parks especially for social distancing. You can also get fishing and recreational passes for those who don’t want to camp, but still enjoy the outdoors. I can not say enough about the host Mrs. Flo. She went above an beyond to make sure we had a great stay. This was a wonderful family experience and we were able to create some great Memories. Can’t wait to come back.
Private and nice
Great private place for the family to camp. Nice and close to the house for quick camping trips. Our host was amazing. Friendly and accommodating. We absolutely will be back.
Peace and hospitality
My husband, sons and I had a wonderful time. The host and hostess took great care of us; the ponds were beautiful and full of color and life; and we loved listening to the roosters in the distance. We spent our time kayaking and fishing. My son even caught two fish.
