Very nice, somewhat rustic CG. Open main area with 10 RV sites, and several tent sites. 20, 30, and 50 amp service at RV sites. No water or sewer at RV sites. Fill up your camper's freshwater tank at the bath house on arrival (they supply blue hose), and there is a dump station for when you leave. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Firewood is $10 per large bundle, as you can't bring your own. He brings it to your site. There are numerous hiking trail. Elevation is 3,800 ft., so this would be a nice summer CG. - Ken H.

What a gem! One of those places you kinda' don't WANT to review, because you'd rather keep it quiet!
It's a treacherous drive up the last mile or so to get to the campground. It's basically a one lane steep, windy, gravel and dirt road with very few opportunities to move out of the way of another vehicle. But.... if you're willing to do that, the payoff is so worth it! Just DON'T miss the left turn into the campground and go too far.... it'll be tough to get back there!
The one ONLY other downside is that there are no water hookups at the sites.... but the staff will help you fill up on the way in and then if you run out, they will assist with helping to run hoses to you for refilling. Obviously there's also no sewer hookups.... but they will arrange pump out service.... it's $40.... so choose wisely!
The campground is VERY tenter heavy and GREAT for hiking. The weekends are FULL.... but it's so spacious etc that the only real downside was that the shower house had pretty long lines with all those tenters on the weekend days. The bath house is immaculate as is the rest of the property!
It's like sleeping in the clouds.....literally on SOME days! It was just spectacular though! Mountains all around.... warm summer breezes and cool nights! AMAZING escape from the heat and humidity of Florida! And we saw lightning bugs, chipmunks and even a hummingbird! Very cool! - doggpurr

When we arrived I found out that due to my negligence I did not notice when booking that the campsites did not have water a each site. Only electricity. Our camper has never had the fresh water tanks filled so we were not going to take a chance on contamination or it having leaks. The owners were very nice and understood my decision to cancel the reservation. They still charged me the cancellation fee but that was to be expected and I did not argue as it was my fault. On another note!! Please be advised that this campground name has mountain in it. That being said we were pulling a 32 ft trailer with our F250 and it was a struggle to get it up to the campground. Once you get off the highway from Boone the road is gravel up to Blue Bear CG. One other word of caution. Do not miss the turn as there is no sign that tells you the turn off goes to your campground. You have to know the road name and be watching for it diligently. The second we realized we missed the turn it was too late and drove 3 miles looking for a place to turn around on this narrow two lane road. I finally gave up and stopped in the middle of the road and backed up on to a side road to turn around. They could use a sign just before the turn if it was permissible. I'm sure it would have been a pleasant stay if you did not need the convenience of water on your site. - Bill from Texas

Site I used was very unlevel and not maintained well. Far from what I have grown to expect at a KOA. The staff were uniformly friendly and helpful. The wifi is good. TV is nonexistent as there is no cable and antenna TV barely works. - Tina and Pete Collins

The staff was so helpful moving things around so we could stay a few extra days while waiting for a rim for our trailer. They worked very hard to make sure we didn't have to move spaces which would have been difficult. We also were fortunate that a group of Blue Grass musicians had a meet-up there so almost every night we had the pleasure of listening to them. Wifi worked great; no cable and over the air was non-existent until the last day! Our luck! The roads are narrow and hilly - we needed to level out a bit but nothing difficult. It's a bit out of town which made sure it was nice and quiet. They have some donkeys, goats and chickens....fun to feed. People were friendly and there's so much to do in the area. We loved our unintentionally extended stay and would definitely recommend. - Catsinatrailer

You most likely will not fit your RV into the assigned spot. There are some problems that just can't be fixed...not at a reasonable price, and this campground was set up just too danged tight! I have a 25 foot 5'er. That's small. I pulled in and realized that I'd have to leave my truck blocking the road if I had the camper where it should be. So I backed up until I was almost into the lane behind me. That's where I set up. Unfortunately, even then, I couldn't leave my truck in front once unhooked. I'm just lucky they weren't full, so I parked in the spot across from me. I honestly have no idea how people cope when they're full. As it is, my camper was left by necessity in a very uneven spot, with one slider projecting over the sewer line (no way to run the pipe downhill all the way to it) and the stairs on top of some tree roots. The picnic slab was all the way at the front. I'm only giving 5 stars because the WiFi is great and the bathrooms are clean. Yes, the folks checking you in are friendly, but there's really nothing they can do about spots that are at least 4-5 feet too short and 2-3 feet too narrow. My guess is this place is really old and set up when rigs were a lot smaller. They just never kept up with the times (other than the Internet). And BTW, the pool inexplicably closes when the office does, so no chance of a quick dip after dinner. One last note-the road coming to this place is narrow. I was lucky I didn't meet anyone with an RV coming from the other direction. Yes, once set up, the park is nice if it's as empty as when I was here, what with the trees and animal farm/petting zoo and all-but obviously, I won't be back. I just don't need the hassle. - lesstraveledroad

This is a nice park and convenient. Not many open sites since most sites are being used by permanent campers. Utilities were very good. Our site was not level but we were able to lever using our jacks and no boards. :Park is clean and kept up well. Wifi worked well except at night when many people were on it. TV reception is poor with only a ferw channels available and we could not find any national channels except PBS. We would stay here again. - RayN

The sites are so unlevel that we couldn't get even close to level with our leveling jacks. Be sure to bring leveling blocks. We stayed two nights. The sites are long enough for our big rig and toad. The utilities are well placed and work well. There is no cable TV, and we could only get a few wothless channels on our antenna. The wifi is very good except in the evening when everyone is using it. Most of the sites are occupied by seasonal tenants who have trees. The short term sites are lined up in the center of the campground with no trees or landscaping. While the campground is located in a beautiful area, the campground itself is not very pretty. I doubt that I would stay here again mainly because of the unlevel sites. - FSUWizard

This Park is beautiful, the grounds are very well maintained, and so clean. There are beautiful walking trails. Native wildflowers are allowed to flourish in the green fields which in turn attracts hundreds of butterflies and the nightly show of firefly lights is spectacular. My husband and I visited for 10 days and loved the Park and the West Jefferson/New River area so much we opted for a seasonal site. The fee reflects the monthly rate which is actually lower. The seasonal sites are metered and we pay our own electric which is fine with me. Power is excellent 122 volts/60 hz. Since we are planning on being here seasonally, we had the sewer hard-piped by a very nice local plumber, and it is a blessing. The Park is situated on the slopes of Mount Jefferson which is so beautiful. The mountain views from our coach are incredible. The seasonal Park residents are friendly, everyone waves and stops for a chat. My family has been in the RV Park business for decades and from my own experience I will say that this is the best Campground/RV Park we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. The owners and managers are friendly and every detail is attended to. There are also planned activities to enjoy. By the way, this is my first RV Park review and we could not be happier. - Amy Griffith

Close to Boone. Small, older campground. Independent operator. They don’t take credit cards so bring cash or check. Extra $3/day for any person more than two. Owner was friendly and helpful, lives onsite. We were here during a snowstorm and had no problems. Will check it out again next time we are in the area. - TimO

Small, quiet park in Vilas, NC and 7 mi outside of Boone. No cable but wi-fi is the best we have ever had in a park and it allowed us to stream TV easily. My husband used the laundry room and said it was clean and well maintained. This is a no frills park but it is a great price for FHU 50 amp and great wi-fi. Sprint cell service was good in this area. Open Year around. Our site was a bit of a challenge to level but we got it. Owner is very helpful and accommodating. Monthly guests pay for their electricity separately at the end of the month. We stayed in a back in site with our 39ft 5th wheel toy hauler long term guest. There are a number of guests who are full time and work nearby. Office is cluttered and smells of fertilizer or something but you don't have to go in often. We did not buy anything in the camp store. - Joulesanne

We got all setup and after discussing the situation, we went looking for another campground. The campground is run by a very nice elderly woman who is in way over her head. The office is one of the worst messes I have ever seen. I was uncomfortable even being there. The utilities were awful. The sewer connection was several inches below ground level. The water connection was covered by a barrel, and when I removed the barrel to hook up I found a hideous mess of insulation apparently protecting the pipe. There were nasty looking RVs on each side of us that appeared to be permanent residents. We found another place to stay. I do not recommend this place. - FSUWizard

Truly a wonderful place to hook up for the weekend and enjoy some peace and quiet. Great facilities and close to blowing rock and downtown boone. Extremely nice staff with a great inside family room with some coffee options. Definitely will be back - andrew peterson

Really good value. Staff was so friendly and helpful, and the bath house and laundry room was kept clean. Water pressure was good. Tent sites were relatively private compared with other area campgrounds, although could have been more separation between them. Campers were mostly families and 99% were good neighbors. There were no radios playing or anything like that which was nice. It was very quiet except for one irresponsible dog owner who let his dog bark all night long, but that was the exception - the rest were very well behaved. You have to buy their firewood - they don't allow you to bring in your own . They have a mini-zoo with alpaca and goats, etc, pond, great for kids. I highly recommend and would stay there again. - Mel7

This was our second time staying at Honeybear. We really enjoy this park and have not had a bad experience here. Our site was very spacious and private. The roads into and around the campground could use some work, but it's a minor issue for us. Honeybear has exceeded our expectations on both visits. The staff if very accommodating and the sites are well spaced. We will return to Honeybear Campground! - JandJ TN Travelers

It's a small property but tucked away next to a bubbling creek shrouded under cozy, fragrant balsams and pretty camping cabins nearby. The reasonably priced overnight RV slot (20/30, water) was very accessible to both the office and bath house that was new, clean and readily accessible. I immediately realized I'd stayed here 17 years ago; my stay was as favorable then as now. Everyone -- guests and proprietors alike -- were genuinely friendly and welcoming, a final touch rare these days. - Joooles

very friendly front desk check in. Only one way in or out and its a tight S turn and very steep all the way to the road. Sites were OK, all gravel, small concrete slab, a little close and your tow vehicle must park on the drive in front. Lots of shade, but road noise is bad! Good local, only 6 miles to town. Because the sites are close together the fire ring is close to neighbors, we were concerned enough to not use it. - Gerry9

I really did not like this place. Why? First, there is zero connectivity in most sites. No Verizon and no AT&T because most sites are down in a valley. WiFi is available at the bath houses. Unfortunately, the sites are far enough from the bath house that you get somewhere between 0 and 1 bar of Wi-Fi. Second, you are far from any town. West Jefferson is the closest town at 20 minutes away with few amenities. Boone, with more amenities, is 30 minutes away. Fourth, there isn't much to do at the campground. There is a lake and a playground, but no pool or anything else. Finally, I was yelled at by the angry lady who runs the front desk. That was the last straw for me. We were supposed to stay 7 nights but left 4 nights early and ate the cost. We have been full-time RVing for 10 months. Of the approximately 40 RV parks we have stayed at, I liked this one the least. - RVVicki

This was our first visit to Raccoon Holler in a 40ft Motorhome. Overall, the campsites seemed well kept, roads are paved, sites are gravel. This campground is at about 3000 ft elevation. We had nice breeezes in the evenings as we sat on top of the mountain. Our campsite was next to a road outside of the campground but traffic was not a problem as there is not much traffic. Each site had a picnic table. Sites are not level so definitely plan on using blocks. We called to confirm which highway to travel to the park. We traveled Hwy 16 which was basically a good 2 lane road but most of it did not have any shoulder. Definitely would return. - User1828

Stayed for 10 days in 42 ft. coach. Park is actually easy walking distance to Blueridge Parkway & an easy entrance to gate from the Parkway. Utilities are good, but wi-fi a little sketchy, as are most rv parks. They do have a weekly rate of $235 & monthly rate of $450 + electric. Stayed in newly developed section which consists of 4 pull-thrus (all packed gravel), front of pull-thru has a bit of forward slant, so if you have some blocks, you will be fine. Pull-thrus will easily accomodate a 45 footer + tow. Closest Walmart is in West Jefferson & if you want to go to Boone, we found the quickest way via Parkway. Also, no problems getting satellite tv. One last thing....entrance to park is a bit on the snug side, so take it nice & slow to avoid scratches on your coach or trailer. Mgt. should really consider cutting back some of the shrubbery. - Smooth Running

We were on our way from Bristol, TN to Boone, NC driving along H421. This is a windy road. It was getting dark and we saw the blue sign for "Camping" as we were passing through town. We pulled in and noticed they had 12 sites and only 2 were taken. The camp office is at a museum and they were closed. We took site 5 and backed in on the grass. It had water, electric (We used 30 amp so I don't know about 50 amp), cable and sewer. Some of the sites had damaged cable lines. The bathrooms were locked but we did not need them. Don't know if they had showers or not. They did have some big block fire pits so we did have a fire. We decided to stay a second night and do some geocaching in the area. The fee was $20 per night. It was a reasonably clean place to stay while passing through. - Traveller101

This is an old campground and many of the sites are too small for travel trailers. A tent camper might rate this campground higher than the 4 I awarded it. We had a pull-through site--about the largest on F loop--that was nothing more than a wide spot in the road. I was concerned about someone driving down the road and hitting my trailer, so I placed bright orange tape on the road side corners of my trailer which is only 22 feet and rather small by RV standards. The site was "spacious" in that it was not close to another site and plenty of room between sites, but the site size was too small. The bathroom was not clean and old. No dryers, no soap, and no paper towels. They were doing some painting and repairs to the bathrooms, so maybe they will be improved. The showers are new and in the tent camping portion of the campground. Most people would probably drive to the showers. They were nice, clean with individual rooms for each shower. The lack of sufficient showers would mean these would be very busy during the real camping season. There were only about 3-4 tent campers when we were there. The registration staff was very friendly and helpful. We were never in the campground during generator hours, so no comments on generator noise or lack of noise. The sites are shady. We had rain both days of our stay and didn't use the outside picnic table or have a campfire. Also, we did't see mice perhaps due to the rain. Deer were nearby in the morning as we left for daily fun. The Blue Ridge Parkway has so much to offer in the area, that we just used the campground for sleeping. There was no Verizon service here. The roads on F Loop are in abysmal condition. As we said, this is an old park. There are not a lot of alternative camping locations in this area, but we would not stay here again due to the size of the campground sites. - pavefan

A beautiful place! Rated 7 because of nature and access to Blue Ridge Parkway, not the condition of the campsite. Campsite rating 3 or 4 (poor) because of age and lack of maintenance. We stayed on loop E. We chose to stay away from the lake where it was near 100% fully occupied the week after 4th July. No sites have hookups. Dump station, water, and trash disposal are at the ranger station/office. There are a few water sources available through out the campground to fill containers, but none for direct connect to RV. No internet, no broadcast TV, spotty cell for voice/text and no hotspot. Loop A, by the lake, has a mix of tent and RV sites. Loops B, C, and D are wooded with a mix of tent and RV, not well maintained for years. Loops B, C, D roads are TERRIBLE, missing pavement, mud covered, gullies/potholes, TERRIBLE. Loop E is RV only with a few sites clear enough for solar. Loop F is RV all wooded. There is wildlife everywhere. Deer are fairly tame and will feed in view of the campers. Some animals had a party on our roof during the night so we could not sleep - flying squirrels I think. A raccoon was on our bumper looking in the window about midnight. We picked up some hitch hikers (mice and spiders) while we were there who rode home with us. We bring our canoe. Fishing is ok, but not a lot of action on the fish's part. A fishing license is required. - R V Camper

We stayed here mid-week and had our choice of several spots on the lake. We did not make a reservation. Very quiet. Lots of trees and huge shrubs. Pretty view. - June from Savann ahb
