Enjoyed this campground as a quick one night stop during the winter. I think it could seem crowded in the peak season when it is full.
Decent WIFI which was a big plus and, while we stayed in a full hook up site, the dump station was well positioned and easy to navigate.
The playground, mini golf, bath houses, and the multipurpose room in one of the buildings all looked well maintained and very nice.
Glad we stopped
I camp here annually with my cousin. It’s a great campground if you don’t mind being in a more crowded setting. Aka less remote! Opt for the campgrounds towards the back for a little more privacy and immediate access to the nearby creek. Granted walking to the restroom is a little further. Fills up relatively quickly so would recommend booking in advance during peak seasons. Also be sure to bring your own wood or purchase from local homeowners. No picking up allowed.
Hanson’s point at the red river gorge is often called the best view of the Gorge. To get to Hanson’s point you’ll have to earn it by hiking for about 2.5 miles, but trust me when I say it’s worth it. The campsites at Hanson’s Point are primitive campsites, so make sure you bring EVERYTHING you need for your stay. Here are the coordinates to the parking lot. Type in the coordinates into your GPS and it will take you right to it!
To easily stay on the trial, I recommend downloading the AllTrails apps. Enjoy!
The Tarr Ridge parking area is located on highway 77 on Tarr ridge rd in the red river gorge. Here are the coordinates for the parking lot. 37.85293, -83.64191 Just type it in your gps system and it will take you straight there! From the parking lot I suggest using the ALL TRAILS app to stay on the right trail. Here are the coordinates for the lookout at Tarr Ridge 37.83655, -83.63935.
The hike in is around 2 miles and pretty flat for the most part. It’s totally worth it once you see the view!
Don’t forget to stop at the Shell gas station in Slade Ky to get your parking permit. Enjoy!
Star Gap Arch at the Red River Gorge has two designated campsites on the trail, to the arch. We camped in the closest spot to the arch which is about 250 ft away.
This is a dispersed camping area. So bring EVERYTHING you need!
From the parking lot of the Auxier Ridge Trailhead, Star Gap is a 1.25 mi easy hike with some small obstacles along the way.
Bring your camera with, you’re going to want to take some family pics. Enjoy the view!! ✌🏻
I should start out by saying we found this camp site while kayaking on a creek branched from the Red River at the Gorge.
The coordinates are
I’m sure you can get there by trail, but we took a different route 🤙🏻🚣🏼♂️
The campsite is primitive style camping. So make sure you bring EVERYTHING you need to eat, drink, to be comfortable and to have a good time! Also be prepared to do your paperwork in the wild 💩🤣
*The jumping rock is less than a half mile upstream from camp. If the water levels are high enough, I highly recommend a cannonball competition! 🌊
Have fun, stay safe and pick up your trash ,Wayne Hawk
