“Great Price, Excellent Location”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We come down to Harlen twice a year to ride in Black Mountain area. You can't beat this campground for its location or the price. We have been starting here for the last five years, and each year the campground gets better and better!

Purchased Living Social Deal for 2 night tent camping and kayak rental. Received great service before even purchasing the deal, e-mailed back and forth with Steve to answer some questions before purchasing. Excited from the moment we pulled in to the beautiful campground, and received a warm welcome from Steve, who was nice, helpful, knowledgeable about things to do in the area. We'd planned to stay on a site with electric but didn't love how close the sites were to the highway, so we went to explore the primitive sites. Be sure to pay attention to directions or else you might accidentally take your sedan off-roading like we did. But seriously, the road to the primitive sites is pretty steep and gravely, but we made it in a Chevy Cruze with little problems. Once we found our spot at Camp Site 3 next to an breathtaking overlook, we were in heaven. The bath house feels brand new and was immaculate - cleaner than my bathroom at home, no joke! Too far to visit for all potty trips from the primitive sites (so bring TP!) but great to use as we went in and out of the grounds, and to shower. Kayaking was fun, though the river was low that day. Overall a perfect camping trip!

Room Tip: Primitive tent sites= pros: amazing view, more "typical" camping experience; cons: gravel...

My husband purchased a two night deal on Living Social as we have always wanted to stay in a cabin in the mountains. Harlan County is a beautiful area. The employees at the cabins were very friendly. The cabins are very rustic built from items salvaged from an old mining building. We stayed in cabin 1 which was the first cabin they built. It had two bunk beds which was not ideal for a romantic weekend away. They did inform us the cabin with a queen bed was already occupied. They have larger cabins which would house larger groups. Cabins do not provide normal items you would expect when staying overnight such as soap, shampoo, daily maid service such as fresh towels and removing of trash. The cabin beds only had sheets and a pillow. They did have a mini refrigerator and porch rocking chair that I liked however the cabin was on gravel. They should consider flowers and a little grass in front of cabins. They should also consider removing old RV and cleaing up mini mart area. At one point our tv stopped working and we asked for them to look at it. They forgot and after asking again they fixed it. They need to realize they are in the service business and little details like this will make or break them. Other things I would suggest is to have directions and or maps premade for guests so we dont have to wait for you to draw it out. Plus it would save you time. We enjoyed the kayaking service they provided. We spent a day on the Cumberland River and it was a lot of fun. This place is more suited for groups of guys or people wanting to go four wheeling as there is a large atv spot behind property.

Room Tip: Suggest purchasing one of the larger newer cabins which offer hot tub etc.
