“Close to Visitors Center and cave tours”

Reviewed Jul 18, 2019

Overall Rating

Thinking that the campground would be crowed, we made reservation for site 22. There is no way to see the site and we took one of the few left. When we arrived we found site 22 unusable by an RV as it is on a steep upward slope (18 inch drop in 20 feet). The attendant was off duty so we picked an available site in the first come/first ... more

“Quiet and well maintained campground.”

Reviewed Apr 04, 2019

Overall Rating

There are many other accurate descriptions here so I'll just mention that there is also a USPS office inside the camp store building which is open with limited hours. We were fortunate to stay on one of the two full hookup sites during the off season for half price ($25) with our Lifetime Senior Pass discount. The campground was ... more

We stayed at Mammoth Cave Camground for 5 nights in late October of 2018. The campground is first come first served during the fall and winter, and we had no problems finding an open spot. I’d guess the campground was only about 20% full during the time we were there. All campsites are dry, no water or electricity, except for two... more

“One of the best cave experiences ever”

Reviewed Aug 14, 2018

Overall Rating

Campground is average, nothing special to remark. Wouldn’t camp here in anything bigger than 35 ft. We are 34 ft and barely fit. Most pull through loops are on the wrong side. Rest of facilities are dated and a little disappointing compared to other National Parks we have visited. The visitors center has an awesome interpretive s... more

“Perfect camping to see the caves”

Reviewed Apr 23, 2018

Overall Rating

If you're here to see the caves, you can't get closer, unless you stay in the hotel connected to the visitor center. The visitor center from which all the cave tours leave is an easy 5 minute walk from the campground. Be sure to reserve your tour in advance as they sell out, especially over the weekends. The campground, on the other ha... more

“The ideal NP campground ”

Reviewed Apr 03, 2018

We wound up stopping by in early April. Even though it was in the middle of spring break season and all Cave tour tickets were sold out for the week, getting a site was not an issue at all. The campground is nice a spacious with paved pads, many which are pull through. No hook ups, all though they did offer one full hook up site for $5... more

Overall this is a very nice campground, especially for NPS. No hook-ups but there is water in the park and a dump station at the front. In the mornings and evenings, deer would walk though the campground. Rangers came by every day to clean up an open sites. It's a short bike ride or walk to the visitors center. There is also a ... more

“Wooded sites”

Reviewed Apr 10, 2017

Overall Rating

This open wooded campground was upgraded at some point to accomodate larger rvs and trailers, since a quarter or more of the sites are paved pull through. The spacing is good between campsites, but there is little understory, so you see to other sites. There are no hookups, but there is water available, dump station and bathrooms wit... more
