This campground is where you stay if you can’t get in at Cumberland Falls State Park. It’s a decent base for local attractions and it is easily accessible. There is a golf course but aside from that the park is nothing to enjoy. Level sites are few and far between. Sites are decent size but the pads are pretty narrow. Most sites seem to be close to utilities. Did not use the bath houses but there was laundry available. While the park itself is ok, we would never stay here again due to a strange local vibe. There was a yard sale in the actual campground when we stayed. Not the park, the campground. Locals had reserved sites to sell their stuff. Friday and Saturday morning the campground was being “shopped” by local residents just cruising through the grounds. It did not seem to be a Kentucky State Park sanctioned event which made it even weirder. There is a ranger in a police car that patrols regularly. I don’t know if that means the area is safe or unsafe, just an observation. Also, there must be a racetrack close because the noise was unbearable Saturday night. Not the fault of the park but dragsters racing until after midnight close by and it was LOUD! Maybe on a different weekend my opinion would be different but overall a pretty negative experience.

Easy access. Most sites are good. Few are small and no shade. Not a lot of scenery. Overall good tho.
