We heard gunshots several times through the night, one occurrence was very nearby. The Privy's were not well kept, we had broken glass around our site. The host was rude to us twice.

The five available sites were closer together than we would have preferred, but it would be great for a big get together. The sites are all well protected as there were 40mph gusts and our tent never wanted to blow away.

Great spot right next to the Appalachian Trail. The campground is wonderful with benches to sit on, ample fire pits, and plenty of firewood. It's always fun to talk with the hikers! The campground is close to many interesting places, including lots of great breweries and wineries.

Clean and beautiful campground with a shady canopy and great campfire pits with sturdy seating. The campground sits next to an Appalachian Trail lodge. We enjoyed chatting with the hikers when we fetched water or firewood. We also took a few short hikes alone the trail! The water and firewood are allocated at the lodge (maybe a quarter mile round trip) and you park in the lot and walk into the campground. It’s not far, but folks should plan to port their gear in. Glen was helpful and informative - especially when we found ourselves on the wrong trail 😎

Loved it! This was such a nice campsite— it was neat and tidy, and every camper gets 1 free bucket of firewood! We had the place pretty much to ourselves as we were winter camping which was a nice little peek. ;)

If you want a real camp site and also be close to DC, then this is the perfect place. Kids loved it. The ground has lots of small natural rocks, so be prepared to bring something to cushion your body on the ground.

Bears Den was just right for our needs. Very kids friendly. The campground was rocky. Parking is a short walk from the campsites. The available pre-chopped firewood was a very nice offering.

Great spot! Beautiful under the trees and the shelter saved us when it started pouring rain.

Someone took our spot but the host let us camp in a different place close to the hostel. So wants really camping.
The overlook was very close, we enjoyed a beautiful sunset.
It all worked out at the end.
