Great location near the caves, kayaking, ziplining, horseback riding, etc. Cabins were nice with everything you need, including a nice fire pit with plenty of room. Beats any hotel in that area. Ralph and Lena were great and so was their dog Harvey. My wife and I stayed an extra night because of the cabins and surrounding area. It was... More

We were a little shocked when we first got there, but then we remembered we were camping. It is by no means a 5 star hotel, but that is not what it's supposed to be. The place will grow on you as you stay there. Owner is refurbishing the cabins over the past few years and they are starting to... More

This is very near to Mammoth caves. The cabin is small - just enough room for a bed, fridge, microwave, and bathroom. There is a tv with cable as well. WiFi is available at the main house but not in the cabins. For the price, it is a good deal if you are just looking for a place to sleep.

It was a last minute decision to visit Mammoth cave NP during the Christmas vacation and staying here was an additional fun. Though online it was showing the cabins are closed for winter, but Ralph was very helpful when we contacted personally. He made us the arrangement at Cabin 5 and we were the only couple staying during Christmas. It's... More

This little place was the perfect escape for the Thanksgiving week. Comfortable, clean, and with lots of space for the kids to run around outside. Plus it was very close to Mammoth Cave National Park and a lot of the other caves in the area. Nice little town nearby, and super-friendly owners. And thanks for the Thanksgiving snow!! :)

I've stayed here many times over the years and enjoyed staying most recently on Thanksgiving. It was a last minute decision as weather had turned bad for camping with our dog. It's a great spot to stay close to mammoth cave. It's small yet has everything you need (microwave, fridge, bathroom.) A bit dated, but everything is clean and the... More

Stayed here at the end of October 2014. I chose Rock Cabin Camping because I love out of the way, non commercial campgrounds. We cannot say enough good things about this experience. Of course we were there to take in the Mammoth Cave experience. It was wonderful. We are traveling in a 29' travel trailer for the next 5 months.... More

We had a great 1-nt stay in a cabin. Ralph even gave us a complimentary upgrade as he was shuffling some rooms around. We came in late and he met us right away, showed us around, and gave us some tips for the area. We had dogs and we loved walking them around the grounds. The cabin was cozy and... More

Stayed here in August 2014 with my family. We had one of the larger cabins for ourselves plus a small one for the kids. Bigger one was fully equipped, small one just for sleeping. The place was very clean and has a nice 'old school' atmosphere. The owner, Ralph, helped us in any way he could and is a wonderful... More
