Let me just say, it is nice to find a campground that not only welcomes tent campers but seems to be designed for them exclusively. This campground is primarily a tent site. There are a handful of RV sites, but over 3/4 of the camp is set up for tents only which makes for a better overall outdoor feel without the humming of generators, the height of large RVs blocking your tree views and the overall feeling the you are squished in next to someone.
The closest campground to the Visitor Center, this campground has narrow roads through camp, flushing toilets and hot showers. Preparing for tent campers, the amenities are vast enough to not feel like you are stuck waiting for a shower because they have not properly accommodated you. It is a great feeling to have.
Seasonally there is a small camp store which offers ice and firewood along with some basic items. I even picked up an ice cream here on a hot evening.
My site was $20 and was well shaded, almost nestled into the trees.I was in site 46 which was on the bend and seemed a bit closer to other campers, yet I still had plenty of space for my activities as a solo camper. Had I have been in a larger group or even not camping as a single I might have opted for a site a bit further around the loop.
If you are a senior and have an access pass you can present this when booking and get 1/2 off your site.
Look at the campground map in advance, you wlll be happy to have done so when looking for larger sites or sites which offer pull through options.
Close to the store, visitor center, and tours. Great location, clean sites, everything we needed. Bathrooms were exceptional!! Best ones we've stayed in!! Would have been nice to have a utility sink to wash dishes, I hated dumping my wash water down those sparkling toilets!! lol
Plenty of trees for hammock camping. No swimming options close by. Close to attractions. Clean campground over all.
Nice, clean campground with nice restrooms and general store. The location allows you to see the caves or go on trails near by.
Can't speak for RV camping, but this is a great campground for tent campers. Sites aren't to close together, they've got all the basic amenities, and the park has tons to keep you busy. It does look like the prices have been going up….we camped here years ago & the cave tours ranged from $8-$15, which seems to be about half of what they run these days. A little sad to see that, but the caves are of course completely worth it.
This is a great family campground. there is no electricity or water at the sites, but they are spacious and close to other activities at Mammoth cave and the surrounding park.
The Green River Ferry, kayaking on the green river, hiking biking and caving are a few of the many fun activities at the park and ziplining and horseback riding are not far away. The bathhouses and General Store are nice. You do have to pay at the store to use the showers.
We stayed one night and arrived late without reservations. We found a spot in the C Loop where there were many other tent campers and several unoccupied sites. The wildlife we saw and heard was enjoyable. The boys also did their running on trails in the area. Close to the Visitor's Center for cave tours and a really nice setting for camping.
Great place to camp. the area was clean. Visitor Center was conveniently located for a nice walk to visit for information, pics & souvenirs. We had a great time & took advantage of our time there. We walked, hiked, biked, camped, cooked, zip-lined, and of course, went thru the cave!!
Beautiful spot very close to the visitor center and cave tours. Access to the old railroad trail in right in the campground.
Loved the scenery here, and all facilities were clean! Lots to do! Hiking trails were well-maintained! Kids loved seeing all the extras!
