“Great little park”

Reviewed Oct 19, 2017

Overall Rating

My family of four stayed here for three days and two nights. It was a cute little park. We had a site on top of a hill and it was very cozy. The park itself doesn't offer much but it is a short walk to the Ohio River, or into town and to the Cave In Rock-- which is pretty spectacular!! There is a free ferry to take over the river into Kentucky which is nice. And Garden of the Gods is about 30 mins away - that is a great stop as well if you are in the area.

“Beautiful Park”

Reviewed Jun 06, 2016

Overall Rating

This review is for Cave-In-Rock State Park.

This is a beautiful, but fairly remote, campground. We were traveling with friends and chose the first two sites after the camp host (which was empty), up on the hill. It was starting to rain, so we thought it might be a dryer location. The sites have 30 amp and water and we had trouble with the electric at our site, shortly after setting up. The ranger tried some things and we finally talked him into replacing the breaker, which seemed to solve the problem, but we didn't push it. We were offered the host site, which has sewer as well, but we were already setup and it was cold and rainy, so we stayed and were careful what we had turned on. The cave is interesting and worth a visit, the restaurant on site was really good, I recommend it. The ferry across the river is fascinating to watch and we took it to Kentucky and drove to the Amish area on that side. There wasn't a lot to do in the park, but it really is pretty. One warning, if it rains the mud is super slippery. The pads are asphalt, but fairly narrow, so our steps went onto the grass/mud and we had to be cautious getting to the steps. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
