Our family wanted a central location to meet for a long weekend family reunion. My husband called Ralph and was pleased to speak with him several times while planning for our stay. We had a great time! Ralph was able to accommodate some of us in cabins, others in RV's and still more in tents. He and his wife were... More

My wife and I visited Mammouth cave in May and we stayed in a cabin for 3 days. We prefer cabins over motel rooms because of the privacy, but in this case we had our dog. The owners Ralph and Lina were very friendly and helpful. Any questions, they were right there. The cabins need a lot of work but... More

Now, don't come here expecting luxury. This is a historic hotel and it's charms lie in the friendliness of it's owners, the location close to the caves, and the novelty of staying in a rock cabin. The shower went cold after two minutes, the fridge took 12 hours to cool a bottle of water, and the window was stained glass... More

Location in countryside between Mammoth Cave and Cave City make Rock Cabin Camping appropriate for a rustic, outdoor activity oriented weekend. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. He supplied a large coffee pot and extra towels upon request, and he was very helpful about suggesting ideas for navigating the area. You just need to know what you are paying... More

We stayed in cabin 3, 2 adults and 1 dog (60lbs). It was exactly as advertised and exactly what we wanted. Cabin was clean and tidy. No unnecessary extras. Great place to get away from it all. It's very close to Mammoth Cave. Owners are very friendly and helpful.
