I would not recommend this camp for tent campers. The tent sites are as far from the one bathroom as possible. The tiny electric sites had 50 amp outlets for some reason nd were on a steep angle. The pool was very cloudy and the internet did not work though I was there three nights. RV sites seemed much better but if you are tenting it, go somewhere else. The staff was great though.

nice campground

The staff was exceptional, campgrounds are a bit small and our water didn't work. The proximity to I65 was a bit noisy and took away some of the nature aspect, but still a worthwhile stay. Enjoyed the amenities very much!

The site in which I stayed in with elevated yet there was no grass covering Kama that night there were tremendous storms running through Kentucky and the site instantly turned into mud thick mud. Also there was a trench that had run through this elevated campsite from running water. Finally the Wi-Fi signal is so weak in the campground that I had trouble pulling up basic web pages

The price was right and the staff were extremely helpful. Considering that the Mammoth Cave area is rife with tourist traps other than the caves we wanted to see, we appreciated the value for money and the privacy of the tent camping area.

Everything was good. No complaints.

Great facilities, especially if you have little ones. Only downside was that we wanted a tent site with electric and when we reserved online it said their were none but no one ever checked into those sites.

Well maintained, friendly staff.

Few things around the campground need to be addressed. The sign on the bill board needs to be redone. Logo sign needs to be replaced. Mini golf area needs to either be torn done or fixed up. Advertising in the directories is false and misleading. Also, bank where you fix needs to be repaired. There is a hole that people can fall into and get hurt. I almost did. Other than that, nice area.

We stayed on site T20, which was big and nice, and shady. It easily for our 9 person tent. The firewood delivery service was awesome! (Could you do ice too?) There was no close-by water access which was an issue in 90-degree heat. The bathhouse was clean-ish, but ran out of supplies more than once during our 2 night stay. The pool was dirty - jumped in to cool off, but didn't stay.

Very noisy alone a highway. Pool was dirty. Dangerous open fan to blow up the jumping pillow. Just 2 toilets and no urinal. It can be a nice place but needs an overhaul. O and speed limit is 4.5 mph!!! while the local grew flies low with the golf carts!!!

Staff was super friendly! Lots to do that's fun for kids. Down sides: The water pressure and temperature control in the showers was terrible. Located off an exit with Very run down buildings and adult store down the street. Located right next to the expressway & you hear the traffic & horns honking. It wasn't horrible, but I will drive further to stay somewhere else next time.

Had my Scout troop here for a weekend. Nice tent sites, plenty of shade. Very nice and clean rest rooms and showers. Helpful, friendly staff. Right next to the freeway but after a while you pretty much tune out the noise. Thanks!

Very clean facility and close to the interstate. Stay there Memorial weekend when they were very busy the place was clean and beautiful. I did have to take cold showers but that's what I expect when the place is full with people. If you don't like cold showers when a campsite is full please stay in a hotel. I would give it 5 stars but it's really not that big of a camp site which is okay with me.

Stayed 3 nights in a tent on tent site. Flood light pointed right at tent site. Campground too close to freeway hard to sleep at night due to freeway noise maybe better in camper. No warm water for showers. I won't even use the word hot just was hoping for warm. The grounds themselves were in good shape and staff was courteous. I think if you were in a camper it would be better.

It was Memorial Day weekend and was busy but the showers were freezing and there was no hot water on Saturday-Monday morning! But it was an awesome campsite with great campsites and great stuff like the pool and easy access to Mammoth Cave! Very likely to stay again!


I am so sorry for no hot water. I have placed my order for bigger hot water tanks. So if you come back you will have hot water.

the place was clean, but very loud. there were cars driving to the back house all night long, every 30 minutes to hour. Very loud next to the highway.

Excellent campground

It was quiet and the statf was friendly. The bathrooms were very clean. The mini golf course could use some up keep. Other than that it was a great stay.

Very nice
Aug 30, 2015
Very close to the freeway, kinda noisy at night. Tent sites are very small and unlevel. Great for rv's or campers tho. Very clean & not many bugs- probably for the chickens roaming around. The chickens are awesome! Would stay there again, even in a tent !

Nice place. Good facilities. Only tent camped 1 night and did not use the pool so have limited input.
Aug 16, 2015
Great place for a family to camp.

The first site that we were assigned to was way too small, and butted up to a hill. We ended up at a better site w/out electric, wasn't a big deal. The pool was clean, laundry was nice, bathrooms were clean & cool. The surrounding area didn't seem the best, a lot of police activity. We left a night early due to storm.

The office was closed at 8 pm. I thought this was an early hour at which to close the office. There were no urinals in the men's restroom. I thought this was odd.

The campground is mostly on gravel and we had to try many sites before we could get our tent pegs into the ground. And it's right next to the freeway so we heard the semi trucks all night. Pool was very nice.
Aug 05, 2015
Like the stay. Was not crazy about the site we were given the streetlight shined in our tent all night. Was a little shocked to find chicken in our site every morning, kind of hard to cook around. Other than that everything was fine.

Excellent visit! Yes the road noise was a bit loud at times, but not enough to disrupt our trip. The facility was very clean and folks were friendly. My only complaint is that the electric/water TENT sites are very small. But we still had a great time and will definitely go back!
Jul 27, 2015
We had a great time will stay here again and it's right off the highway

We had a great time there and felt the whole camp was very family friendly! There was a lot for the kids to do that made it extra special.

Tent sites are difficult for big tents. Looks like they are working on upgrading camp site. They still have more work that needs to be done
Jul 14, 2015
The stay was great when it didn't rain but had a great time.
Jul 13, 2015
Overall, not too bad. Tent sites with hookups were small and not very level. Campground was clean and maintained. It's close to the interstate so you get to listen to road noise all night. They also have farm animals that make noise (rooster and donkey). Probably not the best for tent camping but looked nice for trailers and RV's.

For the most part, this was a great experience for our family. The pool, however, was extremely cloudy. We couldn't see our legs. We tried it out for a little while, hoping it wasn't too bad. (We did smell chlorine.) Walking around in the pool, we felt leaves and sticks on the floor. For the most part however, our stay was enjoyable.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. The tent lots are hilly and extremely rocky, make sure you remember to bring a tarp to sent your tent on! My kids enjoyed playing with the animals and the playground area. The pool is nice. There weren't any activities of any kind though, which I generally enjoy. There is only 1 set of bathrooms at the entrance, so I highly recommend bringing a bike!

Staff were very helpful and accommodating. Facility was clean. I would recommend this to my family and friends.

Poorly table or fire bit there when we arrived. The grass wasn't cut so had weeds up to mid calf. Bathroom poorly designed. Flooded whole bathroom when we took one shower.
May 30, 2015
The tent area was in the furthest part of the camp and away from bathrooms. Only 2 stalls and one of the showers leaked so bad a person could take a shower without turning it on. Half of the electricity was not working.
May 27, 2015
everyone was very kind and it's also cozy camping site but the bathroom was small and always occupied with the crowd people. I couldn't take a shower during my stay so came back earlier.
