Peaceful, dispersed campground

This was a great campground. Very secluded and peaceful. Alot to see and do nearby without the crowds you see elsewhere. Helpful staff was very attentive and always nearby. Bathrooms were very clean, and showers were clean and in individual rooms for great privacy. I just wish they had water hook-ups. Also know that if you plan on using a debit/credit card, you have to pay at the visitor center off site. This campground is first come, first serve. No reservations. However, if you go in the off season or on short notice, that can be a benefit. Only 2 rows of this campground are for RVs (paved parking and electric). The rest are for tents.

Beautiful, but busy with traffic noise

Extremely large campground, primitive and electric sites available. $14 for primitive and $20 for electric. Group sites also available for $35, require a reservation. Sites are fairly close together, so there isn't much privacy if you're looking for that. Full shower houses in B and C loop, water pressure leaves those with long and/or thick hair wanting more. Hosts on site, sometimes two sets of hosts. Rangers also patrol frequently throughout the day. Traffic noise can be heard from the nearby hughway. Lots of trails, Pinnacle Overlook is gorgeous. There's also cave tours for an extra fee, flip flop type shoes are not allowed, no children under five, and I believe no dogs either.

Beautiful awesome great campground

This is a gem one of the most beautiful quiet and peaceful place to camp and spend time in the campground is so clean and well maintained and the campground host are just great

Cumberland Gap campground

Well kept clean campground.

An incredible wilderness campground

The beauty of this place is surreal. They do a great job here of spacing the campsites out so that you really feel like you’re in the woods and not on top of everyone else camping there. Rangers sell firewood and maintain a small camp store. Be sure to check out the visitors center and check out the amazing trails! This is a great place to explore, I will definitely be back.


One of the best camping trips ive been on. Camping and walking trails. Good for photography also.


Fun place to take up a big group to hangout together

Favorite local campground!

Very clean, always stocked restrooms. Convenient hiking trails for all levels. Family friendly.

Great place!!

We enjoyed the vast amount of trails and hiking all over the tori-state area!

Cumberland Gap

This is near the borders of KY, VA, and TN in Cumberland Gap park. Convenient to the park, the AT, and the nearby town for supplies, restaurants, and grocery. Its name is misleading: the campground is quite large and not far from civilization or the highway, but it’s still a great place to enjoy nature. The campground is among the trees so is very shady and semi-privacy. This is the only campground in this part of the park. Nothing to do on site besides picnic and relax, there’s endless hiking and backpacking nearby.
