The park is now under new ownership and in the few short months that it has been open this year, the new owner has done a lot to upgrade the park. I truly believe that the new owners will be able to turn this camp around and make it what it use to be. A beautiful resort. New people are people friendly and willing to make your stay fun and worth the trip. They now have activities, the bathrooms and pool are clean. If you need help, they are there to assist you. It's great. I definitely recommend staying here.
This park is a disaster. The owner is never around and they have a young adult caring for camp and with him there are no rules. Garbage goes days before being picked up and garbage dispensers overflowing in park and across road. Numerous broken sewer pipes and at times running down camp roads. Roads washed out and just left never repaired. Bathrooms and showers filthy. If you have a problem and wish to speak to owner he gets nasty with you and says dont make your problem my problem. So if its his camp and you can't speak with the owner not a good sign. Park has alot of potential but right now a waste of a vacation. No activities. Don't waste your time.
We have camped at Black Bear numerous times and yes there use to be old junkie campers and old bathrooms but I wish to say that they have new people caring for the camp and it is very clean and organized. New bathrooms and showers and very well maintained, the grounds are in great shape, well groomed. Pool area very clean. Roads in good shape. Management very helpful. And they do have tours to NYC. The only thing they lack here is activities. All in all it is a good clean park.
