New River Camping
Blue Bear Mountain Campground is one of several RV Campgrounds in NC that also offers tent camping and primitive, remote locations near the Blue Ridge Parkway and The New River NC. You can enjoy New River Camping right near the ancient river, while still enjoying a comfortable lodging location that is nearby to other area attractions and places of interest in Boone. Our location offers some of the best camping in Boone NC, just a few miles outside of the heart of the city and Appalachian State University.
Lots of our visitors like to enjoy activities on the river such as New River rafting and fishing New River. In the warm months, the river provides a cool place to dip your feet and cool off while you are exploring the miles and miles of trails at our RV campgrounds in NC. The Western NC New River area near our camping in Boone NC has calm, slow moving waters that are perfect for lazy river tubing with friends. Canoeing is also very popular here and many visitors rent a canoe from one of the local rafting shops in the area. If you are trying to enjoy rafting on New River, all you really need is an old fashioned inner tube; many people head to local tire stores to get a small, inexpensive rubber flotation device.
The New River is just as popular for trout and fly fishing as it is for New River Rafting Trips. Our New River camping location has access to trout steams and natural, fresh spring water. The New River is very close by and there you will find endless opportunities to cast your line and enjoy fishing New River. You never know, you just might catch a trophy trout, or a beautiful, wild rainbow trout while fishing New River North Carolina. Take your catch back to the campgrounds in NC and enjoy your catch with the rest of your group at an old fashioned fish fry.
In addition to the fun outdoor pursuits that you can enjoy in this area of the New River Western NC, the New River area where our Boone NC Camping and RV sites are located is also known for a great biking route, Railroad Grade Road, and there are numerous stables and guide shops just a short drive away that offer horseback riding in NC Mountains. Come and stay with us and enjoy New River Camping.
