Spacious Skies Campgrounds has acquired the Bear Den Mountain Resort in Spruce Pine, N.C., bringing the fast-growing company’s collection of campgrounds to 14 and further strengthening the company’s presence in the South. The company has renamed the campground Spacious Skies Bear Den, according to a press release.
Located adjacent to the Blue Ridge Parkway in the Pisgah National Forest, 50 miles northeast of Asheville, the campground features 82 RV sites, 25 onsite cabins and 23 tent sites as well as an array of on-site amenities including sports courts, a recreation building with a game room, playground, camp store and 13 miles of trails, golf cart rentals and an on-site lake with a beach. A highlight of the property is a 50-foot waterfall. The charming cabins on-site — including four that are pet friendly — range from the cozy Honey Bear Cabin, which sleeps two people, to the Mountain Creek Cabin, which sleeps up to eight people.
Nearby attractions include the Blue Ridge Parkway, Linville Falls Winery, Julian Price Lake, Linville Gorge, Mount Mitchell, Grandfather Mountain, Elk Mountain Riding Company, Loafers Glory Rafting and Tubing, Altapass Orchard, Gem Mountain and North Carolina Outdoor Adventures.
“With its location near so many natural attractions like the Blue Ridge Parkway and Pisgah National Forest, nature-loving RVers will find much to be excited about here,” said Ali Rasmussen, co-founder of Spacious Skies Campgrounds. “The campground truly is a base camp for a Western North Carolina mountain adventure.”
The campground joins two other North Carolina locations in the Spacious Skies collection. Located just 45 minutes from Spacious Skies Bear Den is Spacious Skies Hidden Creek in Marion, N.C. The company also operates Spacious Skies Sandy Run near Fayetteville. Other Southern locations include Spacious Skies Belle Ridge in Monterey, Tenn. and Spacious Skies Peach Haven in Gaffney, S.C.
