Bear Den Family Campground and cabin guests love our lake for swimming, fishing and canoeing. We have a sandy beach and playground, so the whole family can have a fun get-away in the NC Mountains. Bring your fishing poles because North Carolina fishing license is not needed at our lake. And for the hikers, we have plenty of trails for you to explore so don't forget your hiking sticks.
