  • It was a very nice experience of camping and hanging out with friends. I very much enjoyed my time here definitely one of the best camping trips I’ve ever been on, other than the neighbors keeping us up but other than that Bear Creek is pretty fun and they have a gift shop and lots of campgrounds great for walks also! Surely deserves a 5 star I very much recommend it to people that like the outdoors.
  • The campground and lake are great. Only big draw back is their swimming policy. I understand it is for safety but if they hear thunder everyone has to get out and wait 30 minutes before going back in. If they hear more it starts over. Also would be nice if there was a platform further out to jump off of like twin lakes has.
