Pleasant Atmosphere

Near Corbin, Ky Grove Campground is in Daniel Boone National Park with Cumberland Falls SP nearby. Grove is another of the many smaller campgrounds that are spread throughout Daniel Boone NP. Tent or RV camp, well maintained older area with facilities and privacy. So much to do nearby and just another AWESOME area.

Sister Shenanigans

Stayed at Corbin/ Laurel Lake KOA near Cumberland Falls State Park while at a group event. We were in the nicely shaded loop and had more then enough room to set up and visit with each other. We were in the area for the Moonbow but unfortunately it was overcast and we missed seeing it. We enjoyed hiking in the area and had an excellent time at the KOA. The campground was well maintained and I tent trailer camped. My site was big and level.

No dogs on trail

Daniel Boone National Park is split into several areas, Natural Bridge State Park is in the Red River Gorge section and SUCH a cool area with so much to do. Natural Bridge has two campgrounds that accommodate RV campers as well as tent campers. Both campgrounds are well maintained and can get very busy. Unless you are an avid hiker you will need to drive to all the different areas and attractions, neither park us very close to anything. That being said, the trails are awesome! No dogs allowed on the trails in Natural Bridge SP but there are plenty of trails in the out lying areas to take the pups on. Nada Tunnel is nearby and a must see! And there are several trails along the scenic roadway that’s travels through Nada and the gorge area. Bring your camera and swim trunks!

Excellent Base Camp

Lago Linda near Beattyville, Ky is in the Red River Gorge Area of Daniel Boone National Forest. Lago Linda’s staff is AWESOME, they will go out of their way to accommodate your camping needs. I’ve stayed in the cabins and campground and enjoyed both. The full electric hookups are limited so when you make your reservation make sure you have the site you need for your toys, etc. If your going full dispersed there are lots of sites to pick from. There is a new addition going up in the back with a brand new shower and camping area. On my last visit I discovered the trails within the camp and they are pretty sweet. Excellent for group get togethers check them out!

Long Walk

Natural Bridge State Park is within Daniel Boone National Forest and Middle Fork is the campground in the State Park. Unless you are a distance hiker you will have to drive to most of the attractions from the campground because they aren’t close. So that’s a pro and a con. The campground is not in the traffic flow but it’s not conveniently located either. My favorite sites are in the back row, shaded and more private. Otherwise it’s a mid size campground that can get a little busy when it’s full. Well maintained. Check out Hoedown Island on Saturday’s , Miguel’s for food and no dogs allowed on the Natural Bridge trails.

Bee Rock Campground Daniel Boone National Forest

Daniel Boone NF stretches from north to south in southeast Kentucky, Bee Rock CG is one of many unique campgrounds in the forest. Several of the campgrounds are small and not for campers so check the layouts. I’ve tent camped, trailer camped and camper camped. Bee Rock CG has steps of varying number up to the sites. SO you may want to organize before you head up so there aren’t fifty trips up and down, unless you want the exercise. Can be VERY quiet! And DARK ;) A fire ring and picnic table are present on the camping “platforms” Old Sublimitly Bridge is in the camping area and the river is accessible by trails. This is a good base camp for the area with limited campsites.

Highly recommend

We were here for a couple weeks during Covid. Nice sites, cafe that delivers, a pond and a lake, wooded lots. Very nice management! Will return. Works well for small rv like ours or big rigs. FHU. GS

This place is huge

As of March 18, 2020 Large sites spread out with fire rings.

Princess Arch

Princess Arch is at the Red River George in, KY. This is a primitive camping area. Princess Arch offers 105ft of elevation and is a quick 0.6 mi hike from the parking loop. There are bathrooms and trash bins at the parking loop.

Pick up your parking pass at the Shell gas station at 12187 Campton rd, Stanton, KY. A three days pass is $5.

Great climbing, better pizza

It's hard to pass up a site like this with all the amenities it provides at a reasonable price. Showers, laundromat, and gear storage. The climbing community is great, and the pizza is wonderful
