“Off-Season option for Mammoth Caves”

Reviewed Feb 19, 2016

Overall Rating

So we stumbled on to Mammoth Caves National Park while driving from Lexington, KY to Nashville (don't also miss a stop in Bardstown at the distilleries) and, after a cool cave tour, were told that Houchins Ferry was the only NPS CG open at that time of year (early Feb). Only then did we read the description which warned that it "could not accommodate larger RV's or trailers."

Well, in fact, the only discouraging elements were a limited number of sites (maybe 12?) and a very steep descent road into the CG. Not crazy, just seriously steep. At the bottom is a tight little loop with 6-8 sites right on the Green River (all available except one at that time of year), but several that would fit our 25' AS plus tow rig (hitched we're 46').

At other times of the year, the other CG's might be closer but consider this a good option!
