Amazing place with quaint cottages to stay in!

Highly recommend this trip and staying in the Mammoth Cave Lodge cottages! Close to the cave tours, Green River, and lots of hiking trails in the area!

Best access to big cave

The campground is standard run of fair, pretty spacious & woodsy. THE CAVE IS VERY BIG AND COOL. Reserve the all day guided tour with crawling about in small spaces for the best experience. Make sure your boots have enough tread or you won't be allowed to do the tour!

Nice Picnic area, no campground

This is a nice picnic area near the Cave Run Lake dam.

There are 2 resorbable picnic shelters and restrooms but no camping area.

Beautiful w an odd set up

We loved it here! The spots were spread out and large but the pull through sites all had your camper doors facing the road rather than the fire and your table. Odd set up! The kids loved biking and exploring the woods. It was a bummer there were not trailheads close by! We also had a trek to the garbage.

Good Experience

Nice place. Got up at the crack of dawn and took a walk, saw lots of critters.

Perfect tent amenities

The caves were great but the amenities for tent campers were perfect. Bathrooms were well lit and clean. Water access was nearby.

So much to do!!!

This is the kind of campground you can take your kids, never leave the campground, and have fun for days.  We went over a long weekend in October, with the point of the trip being to visit Mammoth Cave National Park.  The campground had activities for the kids all day Friday and Sunday.  We did arts and crafts, bingo, trick or treating, watched the golf cart parade, played on several of the different playgrounds, and putt putt golf.  

The bathhouses were very clean, campstore is well stocked.  This is a LARGE campground so renting a golf cart or bringing your bikes is recommended.  

The only downside - it is expensive. We paid almost $100/night.

Beautiful Park

The park was beautiful and a packet was ready since we arrived after 7:00pm. Our fire pit was littered with trash. I notified the office the next morning however it was not cleaned during our stay.

Best host ever. October 2020

I found this campground looking for a spot near mammoth cave National park. It’s about an hour away but just beautiful. The hosts were so nice, they called us before checking in to make sure we knew how to get there and to suggest a different site. They had a massive firewood bundle for $5.00! Our batteries to our air mattresses pump had died and they had extra. The bathrooms were clean, nice hot showers.

It what it says it is!

Cute campground. Dog friendly. Super convenient location to the cave tours. Pretty clean bathrooms. Showers closed due to covid.
