Overview

Overview

Beartree offers a relaxing, family-friendly atmosphere and a variety of recreational activities. Located in the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area, the campground boasts a sprawling layout with both group and individual campsites. A small creek flows through the campground, offering a refreshing spot to wade and fish.

Beartree Lake is also located within the recreation area, providing an ideal spot for swimming and fishing.

Natural Features:

The campground is located in diverse vegetation, and Beartree Lake is surrounded by dense trees that meet the shoreline.

The Mount Rogers Scenic Byway passes near the campground, highlighting the impressive valleys, mountains, forests and rural countrysides of western Virginia.

Recreation:

The campground offers two fishing piers, and smallmouth bass, sunfish, rainbow and brown trout are all possible catches. Canoe rentals are also available, and a sandy lakeside beach is perfect for swimming.

The Beartree Lake Trail, which circles the lake, is excellent for hiking. Half of the trail is paved for an easier walk.

The 14-acre lake hosts an annual fishing derby for kids in May.

Facilities:

Tent and RV campers are welcome. Drinking water and a water fill-up station are provided. Each site has a grill and picnic table, and most are secluded from other sites. The group picnic shelter accommodates 50 guests and most group sites fit 24 guests.

Nearby Attractions:

The Appalachian Trail, which extends more than 2,175 miles throughout the Appalachian Mountains and across 14 states, is accessible nearby.
