“Great campground!”

Reviewed Oct 31, 2018

Overall Rating

Like most, we were here to visit Mammoth Cave National Park. We stayed on the Maple Springs side of the Green River to be closer to the mountain bike trails and are glad we did. The trails were great for both of us and we could ride straight from the campground. If you are in a RV note that you can't go across the ferry with your rig!!! You have to go around the park to access this campground. We are so glad we read the other review on here ahead of time and didn't have to back track. The campground was quiet and we had it completely to ourselves one night. The campground had pit toilets but no shower. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we almost stayed an additional night! If you plan to visit the cave, be sure to book your tour ahead of time. The tours were all sold out when we got there!

“Peaceful Secluded Group Camping in the heart of Mammoth Cave”

DO NOT GO TO NORMAL MAMMOTH CAMPGROUND TO GET HERE! Read below for more info as to why...

This campsite is a group and equestrian site and is amazing. We were the only campers there except one tent for the entire 5 days. The first night there were fireflies over the field, and owls sat in the tree near our porch hoo-ing and watching us the entire night. We saw deer, turkey, and a snake. It really feels like your in your own forest. There was water and electric hookups with a really nice bathroom nearby. Also trash is just around the corner. The dump station is back at the main campground, so I suggest going to a Love's or other dump site off the campground area. There were several trails right off the camping area. If you do want to go into the main part of Mammoth Cave (maybe for a tour of the caves themselves), there is a water ferry that transports every few minutes over the river (with your car).

It's NOT located in the main area of Mammoth Cave. We didn't realize it was a totally different camping area, so we drove to the main Mammoth Cave Campground. After we arrived, they told us we had to go back out and around the National Park which took over an hour to get to Maple Springs. You cannot take your RV on the ferry which is why you have to go around.

If we had known not to go there first, then access would have been super easy. It really is a gorgeous spot! There is nothing around Mammoth Cave except small towns (I mean small...) so prepare accordingly and have enough food etc. that you would need for your stay. It's also a dry county, so if you drink you may want to stock up on your beverage of choice before arriving.

Mammoth Cave National Park – Maple Springs Campground – Bounding Around

I don’t think I even realized there was a national park in Kentucky (or Ohio) until we started planning routes, but when we found out about Mammoth Cave we decided to check it out. Leigh decided to...

We of course had to do a tour in Mammoth Cave, the largest cave system in the United States. That is after all, why we were there. We opted for the “Domes and Dripstones” Tour which is roughly 3...
