Camping Fever

Faced with a yard full of snow and sub zero windchill, the DW and I have started planning this year's trips. Booked the first campground yesterday. Thinking going to Mammoth cave in July. Any recommendations for campgrounds in the area. Would prefer full hook up but not necessary.

Drinks and credit cards... fun but not necessarily the best combo.

Well, we didn't book anything. Ended up going out to dinner and discussing all options. Still excited as ever.

Nolin Lake state park is very nice. Just make sure you enter from the west. So I highly recommend using the western Kentucky parkway if your using rt 65

I didnt on the way in...adventure of a lifetime that I will never forget. Hauling a 38 footer thru the back hills of ky. Dang bitchen betty on the dash(gps) and google maps made it a trip to remember.

Because we're Thousand Trails members, we stayed at Diamond Caverns RV Resort & Golf. Not a bad place and the price was right ("free" with our yearly fees). A little run down/past its prime, but I would definitely go back.

There is a national park campground right inside of Mammoth Cave, but I am not sure how crazy I'd be about taking a 30' camper there. It seemed to be more geared towards pop-ups.

One thing to note- it's a dry county and a good distance to the next county to get re-supplies.

We do have kids going (11 & 13) and I was looking at the Jellystone. There is also Singing Hills campground down the road. They both look highly rated.

Thanks for the tip on the dry county.
