It did not looked bad, until we got inside, It had a really bad humidity smell. Thats only complain i had. Staff was nice , the smell was the only reason we did not spend the night. I guess cabin 6,7 are the ones with humidity problems.

I'm sorry you did not like the cabin. If you had said something while you were here, I may have been able to put you in a different cabin. If one was available. If you're in the area again, give us a call and we can place you in a different cabin, on us. More

This was by far the best possible,place we could have stayed to go to Mammoth Cave National Park! The location is less than a 5 min drive down the road to the park and five minutes down the road the opposite way to other attractions. We camped in our rv and Ralph was an amazing host. He had his telescope... More

I took a group of 26 people to Rock Cabin Camping this past weekend. We rented the entire place and it turned out perfect! The owner is Ralph. You could not ask for a better host. He took care of everything that we needed and I was able to purchase a huge load of firewood from him at a great... More

I am in love with these little cabins. So so cute on the outside. They need some love on the inside but they are almost 100 years old. Personally I would decorate them a little different, BUT I did only pay $50 a night. Totally worth the stay!! We would stay again.

We camped here in a camper. Everything worked great. Place could use some touch up paint, but the grounds were nice and the gentlemen that ran the place was very friendly and went out of his way to make us feel welcome. Even invited my boys to look through his fancy telescope. I didn't see inside the cabins, but I... More

This place was amazing in so many ways. It's the best possible combination of the amenities of a budget hotel (we had 2 bedroom plus bath cabin that compared with most motel chains) with the ambience of a park lodge. It's literally on the doorstep of Mammoth Cave NP (less than 2 miles), and is set in the midst of... More

Great little place to stay. Cabins were clean and private. There were grills and fire pits outside to use. Ralph the owner and his dog Harvey were awesome. He brought out his large telescope for everyone and the kids to see the moon, venus, and saturn that night. Will certainly stay here again and recommended it to friends and family.

We stayed for a few days and truly enjoyed ourselves. The cabin was clean and comfortable but we also got the sense that we were camping. Each night we had a fire and roasted marshmallows. The other guests were friendly and helped us get our fire started the first night, then stayed to chat for a while. Ralph, the owner,... More

What can I say about this place. It was just wonderful, I didn't want run of the mill chain motel, so I chose Rock Cabin. I was not disappointed. Clean, neat, friendly. Fellow campers were nice. Owner went above and beyond to make you feel welcome and at home.

Rock Cabins are camping with luxuries. The cabins are very clean and have hot showers and fridge and microwaves. We have been lucky enough to have a huge family/friends gathering for 2 years now. We always have at least 3 cabins and all the camping you can have for 35-50 people. Ralph and his family are the most nicest ,... More
