Quiet little spot

Loved this place so much we stayed a few nights on our trek cross country. We stayed in spot 17 which had its own access to a smaller creek. You can take a short walk up the small creek to get to Clear creek. Spots deep enough for swimming. Our dogs loved this place. Would recommend if you’re looking for a cheap night with few amenities 😊

I always loved Daniel Boone

After several weeks of exploring the daniel boon national forrest, natural bridge, and the red river gorge we ended up at our final stop at clear creek campground. We couldn't have asked for a better place to end this portion of our kentucky adventures This camp ground is pretty basic and lovely. It has vault toilets which were very clean..sometimes those things can be nasty. There was also drinking water here which was great because we weren't feeling like treating our water.

There is hiking, biking, kayaking canoeing, swimming, and climbing in the area. There was some historical landmark that we checked out which was an old furnace of some kind apparently used the 1800's cool to check out. We also went for a dip at the the nearby cave run lake. We were able to use our blow up paddle board and cruise around. It was the first time using it so that made our experience here even more wonderful. Do a little exploring you never know what you'll find in the area.
