“Houchins Ferry Campground MCNP”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2010

Over the years I have stayed at Houchins Ferry Campground, Mammoth Cave National Park, Brownsville, KY. Although Kentucky Tourist Guide says this park is not suitable for RV's I disagree. I own a 88FC35 Bluebird Wanderlodge, 35' in length and I can get my coach in all but one of the sites. This park does not have any hookups, but if you have a generator on board your RV it's doable and in a good way. Peace & quiet, beauty & charm is what this campground offers. The Green River is full of fish for the taking, so if you require a commercial setting with RV on top of RV stay away, but if you can dry camp for a few days this is the park for you. Canoe, kayak,fish the Green River, visit the main park & cave system 12 miles away. You'll enjoy your stay.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2008

We enjoyed camping here by the Houchens Ferry on the Green River. There is fresh water in a spigot. The bathrooms are port-a-pots. But they were actually OK. There are 12 sites. Some of them are little small if you like a lot of privacy. But the campground was only about 1/3 full on Saturday, so we got two good sites close together in the rear of the campground. We enjoyed hiking two little paths which originate behind our camp site. One goes up a hill a little ways. The other goes along the river. Neither of these are official trails and they do not go very far. There are many longer trails available, but you would need to take your car.

I think the fall colors were at peak. That combined with the river in the background, made the campground a really pleasant place to hang out with friends and enjoy nature.

  • Liked — Nice setting
