Honey Bear Campground Review

We just returned from a wonderful weekend of camping in the 
High Country. 
At least that is what they call it over in Boone, North Carolina.

We parked our camper in a quaint little campground called 

Honey Bear Campground
Boone, North Carolina 

I can't say that we will ever go back to this sweet campground for one very simple reason; the sites are laid out backwards. 
It looks as if the campground roads were paved at one time and over the years have just been replaced with gravel. The direction that seems to be the original lay out is now too risky for larger campers due to the steepness of the roads. They now direct you straight in, which makes the sites backwards
It was very difficult  to back our camper into the site. Also, if the site across from us had been occupied  at the time, it would have been near impossible. 

Another down fall for this campground is the lack of signage at the main road. If you did not have specific directions to this campground, you would never find it.

It is pretty primitive, but I have to admit that it is 
one of the prettiest places we have camped.
Rhododendrons are all over the grounds with a mountain stream running right through the middle. It makes you feel like you are deep in the woods....and, really you are.

Here are some photos...

Love the street signs

Our Site

 This was the view right outside the camper door..

This is the sign as you enter the campground... 
uniquely primitive.

Although I can't give this campground our "Comfy Camping" stamp of approval, it did have some things going for it...

The  TV cable was clear and had a large selection of channels;
the grounds were clean and clear from debris; and
it is close to most everything in Boone and Blowing Rock, including 
Tweetsie Railroad.

This is a sweet campground, but beware to those with larger campers; it may be a real hassle to get into your site.

This is a perfect campground for tent, pop-up campers, or small tag-a-longs.
