Red River Gorge kayak/camp trip

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
37Β°49'22.1"N 83Β°37'34.7"W

I’m sure you can get there by trail, but we took a different route πŸ€™πŸ»πŸš£πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ

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 πŸ’©πŸ€£

*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

Broke campers dream

This drive in campground is awesome for those who like to camp for free. Right off the highway! Located on Cave Run Lake. No fire pits, no restrooms, no water or electricity hookups. Most spots have boat in access! Will definitely be going back! Located in Morehead, KY.

Twin Knobs

This drive in camp site is a pay only and it’s best to call a couple weeks before your trip to reserve you spot! You can tent camp, pop up, or set up your pull behind. Twin Knobs is very clean and spacious campsites and most are on the water! This campground has basketball courts, a beach area, restrooms and more. Pet friendly but must stay on a leash.
