Beartree Family Campground

Mount Rogers National Recreation Area

Beartree Family Campground offers 55 single units and 29 double units. Some sites are available by reservation; many are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Each single unit has a parking spur, picnic table and fire ring. Single sites are limited to a maximum of 8 people and 2 vehicles per site. Double units have 2 parking spurs and 2 picnic tables. Double units are limited to 10 people and 4 vehicles per site.

Many sites have tent pads. Recreation vehicles up to 32 feet can be accommodated. No hookups are available. Water hydrants and trash receptacles are conveniently located throughout the campground loops. Bath-houses with flush toilets and warm water showers are provided. One bath-house is fully accessible for wheelchair use. A trailer waste disposal station is located near the recreation area exit.

The beach and associated bath-house facilities are available to anyone camping within Beartree Recreation Area. A beach 300 feet long is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. There is no lifeguard on duty. Two bath-houses near the beach (a “his” and “hers”) provide flush toilets and sinks. Visitors may also enjoy one of 13 picnic sites. Much of the area is accessible to wheelchairs, including the 0.8 mile Beartree Lake Trail.

The campground is typically open from about mid-April through the first weekend in December (subject to change). The use is low to moderate during weekdays, and moderate to high during weekends. The use typically decreases during the month of August. During holiday weekends (Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day), the campground fills to capacity and reservations are recommended.
