We were completely excited about this trip, and everything we imagined about the park was on target!  Check-in was easy and friendly, and we were encouraged to drive around and pick out the camp spot that would work best for us… the only problem?... they were ALL GREAT!!!  It was tough choosing which one!!  All had wonderful tree coverage for...

Stayed 3 days in the campground. The tours that we took were very nice! Some tour guides better than others. The campground was nice and quite. Very clean around the sites. There are bathrooms in the campground that were as clean as clean can be for a bunch of campers. No full hook ups. Showers were a different story. You... More

We stayed at site 64 in the main campground close to the visitor center. It was close to the bathroom and had a rock my sin had fun playing on. We drove around the site and picked out the camp site we liked best. Restrooms were clean and the camp sites were all very nice. The sites were wooded so... More

Go check out a site before you book it. Some RV sites are on impossible grades. The washroom offers soap hot water and blow dryer. The showers require a $2.00 token and are next the camp store. Buy your groceries before you arrive! Parking spaces are paved and have concrete picnic table and fire pit. Located in a mature hardwood... More

I only stayed one night with a tent but I really enjoyed it. The ground was a little soft but there is a lot of space. There is a parking spot for the car, a picnic table, fire place and enough room for the tent.

There is everything you need and would expect at a National Park campground. The sites were decently spaced, and shaded well by the trees. The only downside for tent campers are those people who insist on running generators on their campers. The only way to avoid this is to be in the tent only area, but we thought this area... More

Though convenient to the national park cave tours, visitor's center, and camp store, I might try another campground next time - especially if staying on a Friday or Saturday night. The noise (from generators and partiers) was significant throughout the night. I do not believe this campground recognizes 'quiet hours'. Facilities were adequate, showers were hot, and you can't beat... More

These campgrounds are very convenient to the mammoth cave tours and are within walking distance. The sites were cleaned before we arrived, there are plenty of tall trees for shade but not for privacy. The sites are somewhat close together but not horrible. The road was really close by and I could see and hear every car that went in... More

Good campsites with lots of tall trees and shade. Good variety. I think the non-reservation sites were a little nice in a way, but you take a chance then. Bathrooms were nice. There is a small camp store with laundry and showers. You do need tokens for the showers and are $3 in the store. Shower facilities were ok but... More

We camped in June, 2014. This was a nice, family oriented camp site. The showers were a bit funky, but the bathrooms were nicely maintained. The camp store has most everything you may have forgotten. My major complaint is the firewood that the camp store sold us. It was green, wet, large pieces of oak. This wood spent 3 days... More
