The cave was great, but campground was not impressive at all. I would never go back to camp. I can deal easily with no electric or water at the site, but seriously paying to take a shower? That adds up quite fast when you have a family of 5 plus the fact that the shower wasn't just a skip away either. The bathrooms were air conditioned but they couldn't provide a shower! It rained heavy for 5 minutes and our site completed flooded as well. We've camped at a National Park in TN before (Ocoee/Hiwassee River) and they had nice hot showers. I won't be back to camp here. Only a good place for a day trip in my opinion and no privacy in between sites. Didn't even have a playground either.

Pros: Large sites Lots of wildlife (saw deer walk through our campsite at night!) Nice bathrooms Decent showers Cons: You have to pay for the shower (1.50$ for 4 minutes) The bathroom light sensor wasn't working properly and kept turning off every 30 seconds We had neighbors with their generator running most of the night and no camp officials around to express our complaints to

Four of us stayed in the cabins. It was excellent!! The perfect amount of amenities while still having outdoor elements of cabins. My favorite part was the amount of windows and breeze that you could have in your cabin. I also really appreciated the consciousness of keeping things environmentally friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at site 2 in the tent only loop of the campground and quite enjoyed ourselves! When we were not hiking or caving, we were able to sit at our site and watch the local wildlife. There were little chipmunks running around, as well as deer with their fawns. The deer come quite close to the campsites, and two even bedded down in the tiny ditch by our site for a while. As for the site : The gravel area was more than sufficient to accommodate our 10x14 tent. There was a fire circle, picnic table, prep station, and room for multiple chairs and a hammock. The tent ground was near the park road, but noise wasn't really an issue. There are no electrical outlets, but we didn't miss them. The bathrooms were nice and clean --not one of those places where you have to worry about spiderwebs. Campsites are not equipped with individual spigots, but there is one near the bathroom. We just took a gallon of water with us for cleaning purposes. The showers are located close by in the same building that houses the camp store, post office, and laundry facilities. Currently, $1.50 gets you a 4.5 minute shower, with each additional quarter providing an additional 30 seconds. The showers were clean, great water pressure, tons of hot water, and I never encountered a line. I will suggest timing yourself though, so that you are not left with shampoo in your hair! All in all, we had a wonderful experience. Everything was clean and well-maintained. All of the staff we encountered were very helpful and friendly. In our three days there we did 8 miles of caves, 2-3 miles of above ground trails, and 2 nighttime presentation. We were going nonstop, but barely put a dent in all there was to do. We will most definitely be returning!

We spent four nights at the main campgrounds in Mammoth Cave NP. We camped with a 5th wheel camper. It was pretty warm and humid, although it did cool off nicely at night. The campgrounds are beautiful, heavily wooded. We were in site#36 and it was nice having the bathrooms right across the road from our campsite. Bathrooms were very clean, flush toilets, electricity, etc. There are showers and laundry available. The showers take quarters only. They're in decent shape. There are laundry facilities there too, although several of the machines are out of order. I did get frustrated while trying to do laundry because one of the machines didn't do the spin cycle so I had to squeeze everything by hand, then when using the dryer, everytime I opened the door to check on clothes, an article of clothing would get stuck between the tub and the shell of the machine. I ended up stretching some clothes out, just trying to yank them out.
