Mount Jefferson State Park
Blue Bear Mountain camp grounds in Boone NC are the perfect camping spot in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our location is very convenient to multiple state parks and recreation areas and we offer Blue Ridge Parkway RV Camping as well at our Blue Ridge Parkway campground. We are a short driving distance from Grandfather Mountain State Park and Mount Jefferson State Park respectively, approximately 15 minutes from Rocky Knob Mountain Bike Park, a few minutes from The New River NC, and Elk Knob State Park is practically in our backyard. When you stay at our Boone NC camping area you will be right near everything, yet far enough out in the wilderness to give you a feeling of being surrounded by nature.
Mount Jefferson State Park is a state natural area in Ashe County. Named for Thomas Jefferson, Mount Jefferson State Park was created after a feverish effort was made by a handful of a few proud locals back in the 1950's. It is known for being rather small, but it has some outstanding views that are well worth a trip.
Mount Jefferson State Park includes a road that leads to the summit of Mount Jefferson which offers amazing views of Ashe County and the cities of Jefferson and West Jefferson. There are two overlook spots at Mount Jefferson State Park; both of these areas have some nice trails that lead to various areas of the park. There is also a picnic shelter at the summit of Mount Jefferson which soars some 1,600 feet above the cities below.
