Spot was so slanted it was hard to get in and out of camper and right across from us was this wooden box that smelt like raw sewage which made it impossible to be outside! I left a message and no one ever responded!

The campsite wasn’t the greatest for pitching a tent. The ground was mostly rock and shale. Sites were pretty close to each other/small for it being “primitive”. Also they are very disorganized when it comes to kayaking/canoeing/letting you know what you’re supposed to do or where to go. Probably won’t return. It’s was a bit of a fiasco.

The "primitive" camp sites are just what I was looking for. Nice setup.

The camp site was so rocky-I’m talking boulders sticking out of the ground. Our 10 person tent barely fit. The “road” was horribly thin and rocky-I don’t have an off-road vehicle and shouldn’t need one to get to the site. You had to sign up to use the pool and all the times were taken. Quarter operated showers-this is a camp ground not a truck stop. Lesson learned, back to Jellystone we go!

Great time with my 3 boys. This is our end of summer "guys" trip and while the campground was mostly empty, all the amenities were open and available including the camp store. Good time was had.

This place is sooooooo much fun! A very short walk or drive to Lake Arthur. The campground is beautiful and the staff is friendly and helpful at all times. We come here on a regular basis. My only complaint about the kayak rental was trying to get a tandem kayak off the storage tree with only the help on my 11 year old son. It would have been better if the rental units were just there for me to drag to the water. Would buy this groupon again though!!

About Bear Run Campground

Dawn has settled its warm glow upon the trees dappling 60-acres of rolling farmland, beckoning sleepy campers forth from their tents to admire the golden morning unfolding around them. This serene scene at Bear Run Campground rings in a day filled with leisure and excitement, the calm of relaxed breakfasts followed by the splashes of outdoor enthusiasts embarking upon aquatic adventures in rental kayaks. Since its founding in 1975 by the Wehr family, Bear Run has accommodated all types of campers with a variety of lodgings, ranging from cabins and rental units outfitted with all the comforts of home to primitive tenting sites equipped with nothing but a clear space for a tent and a post to tie up pet pterodactyls. Amenities include a heated swimming pool, a game room, and a softball field, and staff also organize camp-wide activities.
