We live very close to Bent Creek, but we tent camp with kids at Bent Creek almost every year, just because it's so convenient. The camp sites are well maintained and quiet, and the bath houses are clean and have showers. Lake Powhatan is small but nice. There are miles of trails through the forest for hikers and mountain bikers--just be aware of bikers if you are on foot. You can walk (or bike) from the campground, down a trail and through a gate directly into the NC Arboretum, which is also a wonderful place to spend time.
