Nice, clean, campground

I don't live far from this place. It's a nice quick weekend getaway. The bathrooms are the cleanest I've ever seen, you're close to town, and have a beautiful river that runs right by the campground. There's a great walking trail that runs right by.

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…

Perfection

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Very quiet and allowed us to enjoy nature. We loved pool as well!

Rustic Forest Campground

Our site was level, but it was hard to tell the sites if the campground staff hadn’t led us to our site. The area around our site was all gravel. Made it a little tricky to see what was a road and what was a site. The bathrooms were clean but a little rustic.

Laurel County side with 9 sites is still open

The sites all sit on the side of the road opposite the river bank. Each site has a small parking area and a well done, leveled gravel path/stairs leading to the picnic and fire ring area as well as the level area for a tent. I was most surprised at how much traffic was on the road, especially…

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…

Very nice State Park camping

This is our second stay here and we really enjoy this state park. The sites are concrete and level for the most part. Sewer connection is in a wonky location on quite a few sites. Water connection is further from the sites than normal on several spots. Nice lake with paddle boat and kayak rentals…

Beautiful eyes and quiet

We were hear on Labor Day weekend and really enjoyed it. It is quiet and our site was relatively private. Cool stuff to do nearby, hiking, overlooks and old mining community. We stayed at site 13 it is near a small pond and was quiet. Sites 20,21 &22 looked even more secluded. Will be…

Litter Ruins Great Spot

We needed a spot for Labor Day weekend and discovered Barren Fork Horse Camp in Daniel Boone National Forest near Whitley, KY. There are lots of great hikes and natural bridges in the area to check out. We had no problem finding a site. The biggest negative is the amount of trash that was left in…

Sad campground for such a beautiful area

We stayed two nights in the Ridgeline Campground, site R22. This is a beautiful area, but there is nothing beautiful about the campground. Seemed run down and the spots are right next to each other. Make sure to watch the “max vehicle length” - we have a 21’ van and we barely fit into our site…

Great Campground, No Complaints

We stayed at the east campsite, on one of the primitive sites. The site was level, and the picnic bench and fire ring were useful. There is plenty of room for your tent and parking. The restrooms were not the greatest, but they were nice to have (only a short walk from the site).

Clean and quiet

Bathrooms were clean, people were friendly and quiet. Reasonably sized sites that were first come, first serve, but we had no problem finding a site on a Friday afternoon. Lots of ranger patrols.
