    Welcome to Nolin Lake State Park Campground, nestled near Mammoth Cave, KY. This spot is a gem for anyone looking to enjoy the great outdoors with a touch of comfort. The campground operates from April 1 to October 31, offering a range of accommodations including tent sites, RV spots, glamping options, and even yurts.

    One of the standout features here is the proximity to Mammoth Cave National Park, just a short 20-minute drive via the Green River Ferry. This makes it a perfect base camp for exploring the caves and hiking trails in the area. Visitors have praised the well-maintained facilities, including clean bathrooms and hot showers. There's even a washer and dryer on-site for those longer stays.

    For families, the campground boasts a playground that keeps the little ones entertained. Pets are welcome too, so feel free to bring your furry friends along. The sites are generally spacious, with some offering beautiful lake views. If you're into fishing, you'll love the easy access to the lake where you can try your luck at catching dinner.

    Electric and water hookups are available, making it convenient for RV campers. There's also a sanitary dump station at the entrance. Firewood and other essentials can be purchased at the campground store, though be prepared to carry your firewood to some of the more secluded tent sites.

    The campground is big rig friendly, and alcohol is allowed, so you can enjoy a cold one by the fire. Just be mindful of the occasional burn ban due to the pine trees in the area. Whether you're here for a quick overnight stay or a longer vacation, Nolin Lake State Park Campground offers a relaxing and enjoyable experience for all.
