Clean, Level, Quiet and Wooded!

Some RV sites have Elec and water, some do not. If it’s first come first serve there seems to be plenty of sites and you can pay at the Ranger station.

Nice clean campground

A group of 6 campers on our way to the East Coast stayed over in Grove Campground, part of the Daniel Boone National Forrest. We stayed 2 nights in our site B12 and enjoyed the stay. Although COVID had bathroom closed, we brought our own. We had a great time exploring the area including Cumberland Falls. We would go back if ever in that neck of the woods again!

Pleasant Atmosphere

Near Corbin, Ky Grove Campground is in Daniel Boone National Park with Cumberland Falls SP nearby. Grove is another of the many smaller campgrounds that are spread throughout Daniel Boone NP. Tent or RV camp, well maintained older area with facilities and privacy. So much to do nearby and just another AWESOME area.

Great spot!

I thought this campground was very nice! The camp hosts were very friendly and the spots were nice and secluded. The campground had bathrooms and showers. Close to laurel lake and close to the marina. Corbin is nearby also, where the original KFC is by the way! Also check out Cumberland falls in the area!!

The grove is a small friendly wooded campground with primative and rv spots

This campground is a favorite in my hometown. Very friendly camp hosts every year. Quaint camping areas private and semi private areas. Primitive camping if you like to really rough it with nice trails to each spot. The camp hosts comes by nightly to see if you need wood or ice. Very convenient if you dont want to leave your camping area. The marina is just a short distance from the campground if you bring your boat to enjoy Laurel lake. You can walk to the lake from the campground but its quite the hike downhill all the way so of course the hike back is a bit harder. You are close enough to hear the boats on the lake at the lower camp areas in the campground. Enjoy our trips every time we go.

Daniel Boon can't get enough

Absolutely love daniel boon national forrest. This camp ground is wonderful. We found ourselves completely alone mid week and stayed for several days. There are sites suitable for tents and electric hook ups for RVs. The showers were great hot...thats always a plus. We stayed here and did a bunch of day hikes.

There is hiking, biking, fishing, climbing and all kinds of other activities in the surrounding areas. On your out make sure to stop at Miguels for some awesome people and pizza and ale 8. This is a world renown climbing hub. Really cool campground, hostel co-op here that sometimes has live music..You won't regret the pizza.

Cheers!
