  • "We had a great experience. Met some really cool people, got to fish, went horseback riding, there was also a heated pool. Office and staff were very helpful and kind. We can't wait to stay again!"

  • "We have been camping at Bear Run for almost 10 years. Stumbled across it trying to find a closer place from home to camp and became seasonal that day. Bear Run offers activities for people of all ages every weekend... the owners and employees truly go above and beyond to make sure each person has a memorable stay."

    — Melanie W, Facebook

  • "Bear Run offers just about every type of campsite from rustic tent to paved with full hookups. Staff was extremely accommodating when we were unable to level our camper because of heavy rains giving us an easier site to deal with. Camp store has just about anything you need. Nice playground and pool!"

  • "Since I was a little kid my family brought me and my little sister to Bear Run every weekend in the summer. It’s absolutely beautiful out here, feels more like camping than other campgrounds I’ve visited. About 2 years ago my fiancé brought me back for the first time as an adult and I fell back in love with it. All the people are kind and friendly. It’s such a nice beautiful getaway, I’d recommend Bear Run to anyone!"

    — Brittany H, Facebook

  • "This campground has officially become our favorite place to camp. We have found the perfect camping spot and are always greeted and treated with utmost respect by the staff! I would recommend this campground to all because there is truly something that would appeal to everyone! Thank you Bear Run!"

    — Amaritha V, Google

  • "Bear Run is a place where we go on the weekends to unwind and relax! They have so many activities for the kiddos and it’s a safe place for the kids to explore on their own. We enjoy activities on the property, swimming in the swimming pool, ice cream at the store and nightly family time by the fire. The staff is very friendly as well! Thanks Bear Run for providing our family with endless weekend fun!"
