WELCOME TO SPACIOUS SKIES BEAR DEN!
(FORMERLY BEAR DEN MOUNTAIN RESORT)
Hi there! If you were expecting to see the Bear Den Camping Mountain Resort website, you have landed in the right place! We are the proud new owners and we are so excited to welcome you all to this amazing place. All existing reservations made with the previous owner will be honored. We look forward to hosting your camping 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

Take your indoors outdoors
at Spacious Skies Bear Den
The Western North Carolina section of the Blue Ridge Parkway’s hidden gem, Spacious Skies Bear Den connects you to forests, mountains, streams, and waterfalls for the most peaceful retreat this side of the state. Whether you are day-hiking the region, exploring Asheville or a nearby mountain town, fishing our lake, or listening to the crackling of your campfire, you are sure to make happy memories that will last a lifetime.
In the possible event of snow and/or ice, you will need a Four-Wheel Drive vehicle (tire chains are also recommended). All other vehicles must be prepared with a set of tire chains in their vehicle in the possible event of snow and/or ice.
PLEASE DO NOT USE PEPPER’s CREEK RD (Rt. 1566) even if your Online Map tries to take you that way! It is a dangerous road. For RV’s, please use Hwy 221 to the Blue Ridge Parkway (at Linville), then go south on the BRP to Bear Den Mountain Road (at milepost 324.8, approximately 6 miles.) Then take Bear Den Mtn. Road to the East (left) about 1/2 mile to our Office. For cars, Hwy 221 or 226 are both acceptable to reach the Blue Ridge Parkway.
