    Fairdale, Kentucky

    Jefferson Memorial Forest features a campground for tent camping and can accommodate both families and groups. Although the Forest is only minutes from Metro Louisville, camping here seems like a much more remote camping experience. Located within the Horine Reservation, the campground is in the uplands of the Forest and has good separation between individual campsites. Seven family campsites and four group campsites are available. Latrines and water are near to all the sites.

    Listed on Rachael Ray Magazine's "8 of America's Coolest Campgrounds"

    This listing is for tent, car, or small RV camping- We currently do not rent the tree house since it is my home. I may rent it out in the future and I will have a cabin available later in the year

    We are on a solar powered, off the grid 60 acre homestead that has 54 acres of wooded land and 6 acres of groomed land. Come explore our land and relax in the"Tree Web", see the 2 story tree house that I live in, have fun on the tire swing, or just sit and enjoy all that nature has to offer. You can explore our interesting topography that has close to 100 foot of elevation changes, our(mostly) dry creek system that starts with 2 springs that drain into 3 sinkholes or walk 3 miles of trails (if you follow each trail from end to end). Camping can be in the Black Walnut Grove, in an open field or a shady grove. We like to interact with people or you can keep to yourself and have a quiet getaway in the woods. We love groups- Host your event here or have a group gathering with all your friends and family. We have spaces large enough to host hundreds of people.

    - 3.5 miles to Marengo Cave

    - 7 miles to the Blue River(canoes, rafting and swimming)

    - 30 minutes to Pataka Lake- 37 miles west of Louisville

    Deam Lake State Rec Area

    Borden, Indiana

    Deam Lake State Recreation Area is a solid spot for camping, especially if you're into a mix of activities and don't mind a bit of rustic charm. The campground offers a variety of amenities like electric hookups, drinking water, and showers, making it a comfortable place to set up camp. Pets are welcome, so feel free to bring your furry friends along.

    The lake itself is a highlight, perfect for fishing, kayaking, and swimming. Just be prepared for some crowds on the weekends. The trails around here are pretty decent too, with the Knobstone Trail starting right at the park. It's a 60-mile backpacking trail, but there are shorter, more rugged trails if you're not up for a long haul. The Lake Vista Trail, for instance, is a challenging 1.6-mile hike with some steep inclines.

    The campground is near Borden, Indiana, so if you need to stock up on supplies or grab a bite, Sellersburg is just a short drive away with restaurants and grocery stores. The sites are generally well-kept, though some can be a bit uneven or have a steep incline. If you're particular about your spot, it's a good idea to call the park office directly.

    One thing to note is that the bathrooms and showers are hit or miss. Some visitors have found them clean enough, while others think they could use a bit more attention. But hey, it's all part of the camping experience, right? Overall, Deam Lake offers a good mix of nature and convenience, making it a worthwhile destination for a weekend getaway.
