This is a quiet campground, with lots of space and site options, run independently by a family. Most sites are simple with just a picnic table and fire pit. There are lots of trees in between many of the sites for great privacy. There is only one bath house and it can be a short hike depending on the location of your site, but it was clean, had several stalls, showers, sinks and electricity.

The campground charges per person which was different from what I'm used to, but it was very reasonable and comparable to other campgrounds in the area.

The family is working regularly to add to this campground and make it better. There are visible works in progress all over. The owner stopped us on the way out and asked for feedback. He is eager to make improvements.

Dog-friendly

Has a Frisbee/Disc Golf Course.

Close to rivers, climbing and hiking activities.

Cell reception was great all throughout this area. That's not a camping necessity for us, but we all noticed that everyone's phone had great reception with a variety of network providers. We do a lot of remote camping and expect our phones not to have reception. This made it easy to research new activities and things to see while we were there.

My apologies for not having photos of our site. My phone malfunctioned on this trip and had to be replaced. The photos did not transfer sadly.

Red River Gorge

Great introduction to camping for my husband. The weather was very pleasant. Dog friendly campsite and both camp hosts were friendly and knowledgeable. The bathhouse was near our site and in decent shape for a camping bathroom. Showers, electricity and potable water is available at the bathhouse. The water is heavily chlorinated. We brought our own drinking water, but used the campgrounds for cleaning ourselves and dishes. We also had a water pump near our site. Best times to visit are early summer before the heat kicks in and fall. Beautiful park. The photos don't do it justice.
