Awful

We stayed at Duck Creek while visiting family in the area. It sits along a very busy road. There are a lot of sketchy, long-term residents here. We were placed on an end site crammed up next to a long-term resident. The last night of our stay there was a rainstorm and we woke up to ankle-deep water…

Quiet and remote

Stayed here in March 2020. My favorite part about this campground was that there were only 8 campsites so it was very quiet and remote. I arrived at 7pm on Friday and snagged the last site. The fire pit had a grate large enough to cook on and I didn’t need to use my extra grate that I keep in my…

Hiker passing through

This place has been on our bucket list for a few years. We didn't get to camp there, but hiked a couple of the trails. It's definitely worth the visit!

The Garden of the Gods Observation Trail was a short, easy hike with some amazing scenic views.

The wilderness has several other hikes, but we…

Great primitive camping area

If you are looking for an out-of-the-main-drag area to go camping, try this place. We have been camping there for years. The District Scouting units use this area for camping. There is two portions to the area. The south portion has a covered pavilion. 

There is no water, so bring plenty. There is…

Great Lake getaway

With all the parking lot style RV parks popping up these days, it’s nice to find these older parks around from days when people liked trees and breathing room. Stayed in the full hookup sites of Dogwood Loop. Some sites are hard to back into and require much work to get level, but they are well…

Overnight stay

Was fortunate to get a short notice reservation for an overnight at this KOA. The hosts were very friendly and helpful, the pool was a hit with the kids, and there's quick food options just down the road. The campground itself is somewhat hilly with plenty of tree cover, but the lots are gravel and…

Tits

Awesome spot. We were trying to hit garden of the gods. Drove through that campsite and it was packed on a Friday afternoon. We refilled our 7 gal water jug there in the weirdest spin crank pump ive encountered yet. It tasted a bit bleachy, but it's there. Checked out the local camp country tourist…

Plenty of water access!

The lake is just down the road from our campsite and there is a trailhead bathroom right at the boat ramp!

The campsite itself is pretty enclosed, but there is no fire pit or electrical access. It’s pretty simple and honestly it’s a really good set up! The campsite was small and perfect for just…

Great spot!

Super easy to walk in. Ten dollar fee to camp. The place was empty on the Thursday afternoon we came in. Saw lots of deer right on Kentucky Lake, as well as a family of trash pandas. The sites were very dirty when we arrived (baby diapers and wipes scattered everywhere - eww), but we cleaned it up…

Nice quite primitive camping

Mostly flat near the water and lots of sites to camp. We really enjoyed our spot in the shade on a hot summer weekend.

Peaceful Place

I stayed Thursday-Sunday. Very peaceful and clean. Very well maintained. Even the pit toliets are nicely stocked with toliet paper. Love the tall trees and that it's down the road from Garden of the Gods trails/ observation trail. Great for tents and Hammocks.

Simple Shaded Hideaway

A first come first serve spot. Need to have your camper in the actual spot before paying(different). Had to hook our 38ft 5er up to a 30amp first night even barley using anything the breaker kept tripping. We moved to 50amp the next day and all is lovely. The two sites we chose were large enough to…
