Peaceful and relaxing

I've been camping at this state park since the early 2000's and am pleased to say not much has changed.The campground has 7 sites each with it's own picnic table, fire ring, and pole for stashing your food away from bears. If you like fishing there is a small lake which is regularly stocked with…

Comfy and great for fishing and boating

I stayed here for two night and enjoyed my time. RV spots are a little close to your neighbor but it was quiet and peaceful. This is a great spot if you don't mind not having a network connection or Wi-Fi. Spot comes with an electrical hook-up, water, fire pit, and a picnic table. There are also…

Quiet, peaceful, but no water hookup

Very peaceful, not at all crowded, small campground. There's only 18 sites and they're spread out. There is electric hookups but not water. There is a dump station too.

Simple Stay

We pulled in around midnight and we’re thankful that the gate was still open. Even after calling and making sure we would be able to access the site sometimes it’s still nerve wrecking. The signs were easy to follow. Hooking up to our water and amp was super simple and easy. The dump station was…

Warriors’ Path

A nice campground, although not the place to go if you’re looking for a “middle of nowhere” site. Quiet during our stay in the middle of the week, although a lot of coming ans going. Several amenities available, and close to Walmart, gas stations, etc. Bathrooms were relatively clean, hot showers…

Great small campground

Good size sites, especially the outer part of the loop. The beach is nice but a lot of steps to get down to it. Overall the campground is clean and staff is extremely helpful. The bathhouses are a bit run down and updated or something. We had a path to the lake which was great and we kayaked from…

Not too shabby

This is a decent campground that definitely caters to the SxS and off road crowd. Sites are relatively level and there is a decent amount of space between them. Backing in is quite easy as there is plenty of room to maneuver. The campground is very quiet but I can imagine it is really hopping over…

Hidden gem in Harlan county.

Great spot in an interesting area, we were here to go to the high point, Black Mountain. Portal 31 is closer, but this is a significantly more natural experience.

6 sites that are tent-centric but doable with a small trailer, there are two additional sites that can be accessed if you ask the…

Quiet, beautiful views

This campground in the Kingdom Come State Park has about 6 or 7 sites, and they are primitive with no running water, but good pads, picnic tables, food hangers, shade from trees, and fire rings. There are men's and women's bathrooms, with running water in the sinks, but no water faucets as in other…
