This was our last camping hoorah before winterizing our camper. The campground was not very crowded at all. The roads in the campground are tight. So if you have a bigger camper lookout. We were in site 57. We had to pull up the site poles and back in carefully. Most of the state parks have smaller roads & campsites, because when they were built the parks the campers were not as big as they are today. Natural bridge is another tight camping park comes to mind.
The amenities @ campground are basic, especially in November as they will close for the season shortly. The equine loop is the newest part and is very nice. Wide site with full hookups. Going to try those next.
We did a cave tour (xcave). Very informative. My family are cave freaks so we have been in several. This tour & cascades are the only tours operating to the public due to the white nose syndrome in bats getting closer to there. They do have a big population of bats they are trying to preserve. You cannot bring bags, purse, camera bag into caves for that reason. You do have to disinfect your shoes after exiting the cave. Cave has been giving tours since the 1900's. Price was very reasonable @ 7 each. Very nice gift shop with snacks & restrooms. Check it out. There is a Mickey d,subway, dairy queen and our favorite Tyler.s pizza in nearby olive hill. 5 miles away.
