Great for climbers

Good bathrooms great cleaning area camp sites are not designated you just put a tent where you want and sleep over all good time

Don’t count on Dave’s word

My group of eight would have liked to stay there but didn’t because the owner , Dave, couldn’t get it together. First I had a reservation booked directly with him but he wrote down the wrong dates. Okay, so ppl make mistakes. But then he promised to call back about making it right and he never did. If you don’t care much about your plans then give it a go. If you do then I suggest finding someone who doesn’t use technology to make excuses for his ineptitude.

No Frills Climbers Mecca Campground

Land of the Arches is popular among climbers and boy scout troups. The hanger is an excellent place for hanging out and meeting new people. Ping pong and pickleball courts keep everyone entertained. Good wifi is provided within the hangar.

LOTA is close to a lot of hiking trails and climbing. We did an 8-mile kayak down the Red River. Tons to do outdoors in this area of the Red River Gorge.

Buy groceries before getting to this campground. The nearest grocery store is a SAVE-A-LOT, 20 minutes away.

Hookup was 30 amp. No water hookup but water is available onsite for your freshwater tank. Dump site also provided.

Bathrooms are in the hanger and clean and well lit at night.


Miguel's (For pizza and for the people watching)

Red River Rockhouse (awesome locally sourced food)

Daniel Boone Coffee House

KRAG (has food and beer inside. Killer quesadilla)

Great car camping

This is in the heart of the Red River Gorge and super close to Muir Valley. Great climbing campground that is fairly affordable ($8 per person per night). The only thing is they don't allow dogs, except at the annual Rocktoberfest festival.
