Camping in Kentucky

Greeting fellow Kentuckians:
I wish to visit eastern Kentucky and am looking for a state or national park with water and 30 amp service, preferably wooded sites. Any fellow campers have any suggestions?
Thanks,
Jim DiFazio

My wife and I have gone to the state park at Cumberland Falls a couple of times. Not necessarily eastern Kentucky but a really nice wooded small campground.

Spent a couple nights at Carter Caves SP in Olive Hill last fall. Nice SP and sounds like it would fit your bill.

You may want to check out Littcar Campground. It is a Corps of Engineers campground on Carr Fork lake. There are several sites with full hookups and several with water and electric. Location is between Hazard and Whitesburg. Sites are not wooded but most have shade. A nice campground.

Living in KY, we have stayed in a lot of them so far. Twin Knobs on Cave Run Lake is nice. With the exception of one or two, just about any SP in Kentucky is nice for RVs. My favorite is Cumberland Falls though. Not real crazy about Kincaid Lake.

As already stated, all of the state parks here are really nice - that is to say that I've not yet been to one here that I didn't like. Many are older, so smaller campers do better than larger, but overall you should be in good shape at a state park in Kentucky.

What types of activities are you interested in while you are there? Hiking is common in most of the parks here, as is fishing at any park near water, but there are a lot of history related parks as well.

Kentucky Horse Park is one of our favorite place to camp. Great lots and friendly people. The Horse Farm has tours you can do and is close to lots of shopping and restaurants.

What CG in Tennessee would be recommended with activities for 5yr and under?

You can hit the link here in my signature for the MoosePod Adventures map. We list all the campgrounds in Kentucky that we visit regularly, our favorite sites at them, etc.

If that helps any. I know from others in our group that the Twin Knobs and ones around there are very nice.

Littcar sounds like a good choice for me. I have an A Frame and I require water, 30 amp service and be close to the men's room/shower house. (I'm handicapped and can't walk very far.) My main interest is in nature photography, a nice shady spot and peace and quiet. One not too difficult to get into.

Do you have any suggestions on campsite numbers I can use to make a reservation?

Thanks for your input. I sincerely appreciate it.

Jim
