Quiet and well maintained. We loved this campground. Nice tent pads and wooded sites.

Love Red River Gorge

We had a Great time here. We've some spent time now in Kentucky and Red River Gorge area is one of favorites in this state. The campground is good pretty simple. Apparently there are showers which are a huge plus or us but we didnt use them we are staying with friends in a couple days. This camp was super close to some great hiking and a guy working in the park recommended some hikes. The trail heads were close to the campground which was perfect and dog friendly. Probably because the state park is sooooo big. We loved it.


Koomer ridge is a great campground if you don't want to hike to camp, it's kid and dog friendly!

Koomer Ridge

This is one of my favorites, most of the time in the fall you have to get there early to get a spot. We tried going last weekend and it was full, but it is a great campground!!

Great place to stay

I am a regular at Koomer Ridge. The campsites are spaced out nicely and wooded with plenty of shade.

Koomer Ridge campground

great place to go camping, direct access to hiking trails. and the sites are kept clean with gravel for even ground under the tent and picnic table for each spot to included a close water spout, and shower facilities on the camp site. very inexpensive as well.

Mountain biking Camp out!

Koomer Ridge campground has a great location for mountain biking (what we went for), hiking, fishing - anything really! The Daniel Boone Nat Forest is, I think, at its most beautiful in late spring. Nice campground and some of the nicest people you'll want to meet while camping too! Lots of friendlies!

Friendly hosts and clean sites!

Sites are pretty well secluded. You have pretty good access to areas of The Red as well.

Meditation place

Calming, quiet, relaxing, the place to get away from it all. Well maintained campground, clean bath house…except for the bugs :) but you are in the woods

Great campground

We love to camp here when we don't want to do primitive camping. The bath house is very nice and so are the trails. And it's right off the road so it's not hard to find at all
