If you love Spacious Skies Bear Den, you’ll love Spacious Skies Hidden Creek! Come visit our newly-renovated sister campground down the road in Marion, NC for your next adventure!
For the short term, we are redirecting our ATV-riding guests to the park-and-ride 5 minutes down the road. We are working with the town leadership and the local Abbot Explorers ATV club to reopen direct access.
Camp (and Ride!) On!
What We Offer
Ways To Stay
RV & TRAVEL TRAILER CAMPING
Our campground offers a variety of full hook-up sites (water, electric and sewer). We can accommodate 30-amp and 50-amp needs. We have pull-thru and back-in sites, all beautifully wooded. Each site includes a fire pit and picnic table.
We have a large selection of deluxe and rustic cabins that provide different bed configurations and amenities to suit your individual needs and camping comfort level.
For your short-term adventures, we offer spots to pitch your tent that are either standard rustic or with basic hook ups. Some sites are large enough to accommodate two groups.
Spacious Skies Bear Den
Set right off the Blue Ridge Parkway at Milepost 324.8, among the breathtaking Blue Ridge and Black Mountains and nestled in the Pisgah National Forest, Spacious Skies Bear Den is your mountain adventure destination!
While most of our sites are full hook-up, we have water/electric spots for a more rustic camping experience or for our tent campers. We also offer cabins in an array of sizes and with varied amenities, ensuring we have the perfect spot that meets each family or group’s needs.
When you arrive at your site or cabin, breathe in the serene beauty of the Pisgah National Forest, of which Spacious Skies Bear Den is a part. Leave your stress behind as you explore 13 miles of wooded hiking trails, some leading to waterfalls on the park grounds. Playgrounds, a rec hall, arcade, basketball, volleyball, and a swimming lake with a separate fishing area will keep campers of all ages occupied. A camp store stocked with necessities and treats alike, bathhouses, laundry on-site and WiFi all bring the comforts of home to your campsite.
“Bear Den is a family friendly place. The spaces are large and you feel quite a bit of privacy. Facilities are clean and there are a lot of things to do. The trails are really nice. It is secluded, but close to many attractions. We would not hesitate to stay there again. Prices are very reasonable. Staff was very polite. I highly recommend Bear Den.”Johnny Mabry@googlereviews

“Really beautiful campground, clean, well kept, good gift shop. Friendly staff. Appreciated washer/dryer available at each bathhouse. Close to Grandfather Mountain, Linville Falls, The Orchard at Altapass. Would love to stay here again!”Lori Cope@googlereviews
“Clean, friendly, and safe campground. Stayed in a cozy cabin and it was perfect for a place to lay our heads and not have to set up a tent. Far enough to not have very good cell reception but close enough to run to town if needed. We will definitely be returning.”Nathaniel Moore@googlereviews
