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

Reviewed Sep 03, 2017

Overall Rating

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.

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...
