Pleasant little getaway close to the visitor center

Great campsite, quiet during the week, busy during scouting weekends. Clean flush bathrooms and plenty of water. Caver's camp store within walking distance.

Diamond Caverns

Nice resort, some full time sites but most sites are well kept. We were at site A7, back in site, 50 amp full hookup fit our 43ft camper and enough room for our truck. Gravel site backs up to trees. Some smaller sites have cement pads but 30 amp full hook up. Great location if you want to head out…

Okay Campground

Full Time travelers. 

Our stay here was October 20-27/2021 in site 22A. 

We didn't know this before arriving, but the weekend we were there, it was one of their biggest weekends of the year with Halloween festivities.  We joined in with the pumpkin carving and costume contests. They also had a…

Our Go-To

What can I say, but Bailey's is our happy little piece of paradise! I've camped here since I was in my early 20s in tents, to camping in a camper in my 40s. Most sites have electric and water. Many sites have incredible views of Barren River Lake and some are downright on the banks. Bath houses…

Tent Camping Paradise

We camped at site P27, which is in the RV section of the campground, but off to the side and pretty private. Great little spot and had our own piece of shoreline. No electricity or water here but equipped with a picnic table, fire ring, and lantern post. Had to back truck up as best we could and…

Store close by

Bathrooms are clean and close to all sites. Trails close to campground. Visitor center that cave tours start from (a lot bus you to another entrance) and historic entrance are very close to the campground. Lots of frogs and bugs making noise at night

Solid Campground!

Stayed here for four days and overall had a great experience. Not too noisy and there was enough space between sites. I loved how close it was to visitor center as it made it easy to get to tours on time.

Hidden gem on a lake

Nice large sites. Ours had lake access and we only booked it a couple days in advance. Launched our kayaks from our site. Decent bicycling in the area. One day we visited mammoth cave national park, about 30 minutes away.

For fun lovers, not nature lovers

This is a beautiful place with decent facilities and very kind campground hosts! The downside is the campsites are close together and the guests are more into partying than enjoying nature. We had one nice night, and the next night a RV pulled in almost on top of us (due to very close campsites)…

Premium camping in Central location

We rolled in with our caravan of 8 campers after dark! The campground check in was super fast, and every site is very well taken care of! Nicely packed tiny, pea sized gravel, FLAT, and easy to back into with plenty of room for camper & outdoor living space. Ice & firewood were a bit…

Weekend Stop, expensive nightly rate, close to City Amenities

Beech Bend Campground was a great place for a weekend stop. We had full hookups for $45 per night. The campground had many open spots. The campground was paved and almost every spot had a small grass patch next to it. There were several larger grass spots on the edges of the campground.

Stunning views of the Lake

The view from our site was gorgeous...! It truly didn't matter what time of day it was, the view was always beautiful!
Being able to park your boat within walking distance of your camper, load up and go when you please, we loved that!
The park was clean and the neighborhood of the campground…

Nice, Not the Beat

Mammoth Cave NP is a nice National Park, and not as crowded as some other more popular parks. We tent camped in the drive in campground. Bathrooms are few and far between, and the showers are located at the general store and are pay to use showers. They showers are probably one of my least favorite…
