A weekend of simple tent camping went great. Campsite was spacious enough for our 6-person tent, a couple bikes and our minivan (which was on a paved driveway spur). The firepit was cleaned out before our arrival. The poured concrete picnic table was in good condition. The campground is heavily forested. A wonderful setting, calming yet inspiring. Every family really... More

First of all, there is no electricity - so either stay temperate times of the year if you don't have a generator, or else, prepare to run the a/c from generator 6 am to 10 pm. Or run the heat in winter - Kentucky can get cold, even though it is "down south". There is no water to the site,... More

Campground is beautiful and well kept however we paid $3 for the dirtiest most disgusting shower I have ever seen at any campground let alone a National Park! Bathrooms in campground are extremely well maintained and air conditioned. Must be maintained by different companies!

Loop C and D were 1st come 1st serve. $20 per night for tent camping. It rained the both nights we camped. We had site 109 and stayed high and dry. Other sites weren't as fortunate. 109 was 50 yards away from the bathrooms. The bathrooms were newer and clean. There is a pay shower at the camp store. You... More

Nice standard national park campground. We never saw a single ranger, it was all self registration. Great tent pads and people respected quiet hours. Nice to be able to gather your own wood for campfires...We only found that out because the store that sold wood closed way earlier than we thought...

We have camped here as a family on five seperate occasions and we're always very satisfied. The lots are very large and it is quiet, peaceful and clean. Hiking trails come right up to the campground. There are also miles of bike paths and bicycles are available for rent at the camp store. Rangers also do campfire talks some evenings... More

We stayed here in late September 2014 on our way out west. We stayed here a couple days and did the mammoth cave tour, which was really kind of busy. The campground itself is very nice and private, with a clean bathroom! None of the sites had electric hook ups, so you will need your boon docking battery power! We... More

The campground is very well kept and clean. The Rangers are very friendly and helpful! We visited over spring break, so the campground was not very full, which made for a very relaxing and peaceful trip!

Beautiful campground, but only two sites have electricity and you will have to cough up fifty bucks to enjoy that privilege. However there is no fee to enter the park. The biking and hiking trails are great. It's rare not to see a few does grazing by the parkway. PLEASE DON'T FEED THEM!
