Blue Bear Mountain offers a variety of campsites, all of which are tailored to provide you with the best camping experience possible. There are a wide array of campsites for you to choose from, from car-accessible camping to remote sites deep in the woods.

We offer transportation for you, your group, and your equipment to our remote campsites for a small fee using our Rhino, Landrover, or Pinzgauer. If you would rather hike to your campsite but have us deliver your equipment so it will be there waiting for you, we can do that too. This gives you the opportunity to bring coolers, chairs, and other camping supplies for a camping experience tailored to your wants and needs. The return trip is just a phone call away.

We can accommodate groups of any size, including couples, families, youth groups, scout organizations, family reunions and more. Our largest sites encompass 25 acres, allowing plenty of room for you or your group to explore the beautiful mountains of western N.C. in their natural state. Please call us at 828-406-4226 to make special arrangements for your large group event.

Everything you need to facilitate a rugged camping experience is located on each site. Every site is fitted with the basic amenities. We work hard to maintain sites that allow your stay to be comfortable and convenient, giving you more time to explore Blue Bear Mountain.

All tent sites are fitted with a rock fire ring, park grill, picnic table and log benches, which were made with timber harvested from Blue Bear Mountain. All sites have level areas for your tent.
