Mammoth Cave National Park-- no hookups, nice shady campground, great cave, great canoeing on the Green River, great historic ferrys across same, great back country hiking!!
Red River Gorge National Geological area, in the Daniel Boone national forest, Koomer Ridge campground- no hookups, shady campground, great hiking, great scenery, great big rock cliffs!
Big South Fork National River and Recreation area-- Blue Heron campground, water and
electric, no sewers but pretty good free bath house, great hiking, great overlooks, great old mining camp, wonderful old rail road bridge across the gorge that's now a walking bridge!
Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area-- too many campgrounds to count,
but we especially liked the Canal campground run by the Corps of Engineers, water, electric at all and sewers at some, great hiking, great fishing, great antiquing and eating
in Grand Rivers, great bicycle riding on the paved paths from the North welcome center!
Oh, yeah- two of the best crappie, blue gill, bass lakes anywhere.
Like the energizer bunny I could keep going and going...... we especially like National
Parks and Forest and Corps of Engineers CGs because they tend to be more spread
out with room between the sites. Private CGs - often call themselves "resorts" and
they tend to be crammed together and more expensive.
Kentucky has GREAT parks!!!!!!! We hope to visit every state park in
the state eventually, we've been at it for years and still have a long way
