Question Kentucky Campgrounds

Looking to do some camping in Kentucky this summer anyone know of some good camping spots.My wife and I are not real active since we are in our seventies but we do love to fish and take short walks to view the scenery. Planing on any thing from four days up to a week at a time. Any help would be appreciated.

I would also like to know. We are planning a trip to Mammoth Cave in June and would like to know if anyone has any insight on the area for a TT.

How about waiting until fall so you can appreciate the glorious colors? Don't know about campgrounds, but Murray (Land Between the Lakes Nat. Rec. area) and Lexington are both beautiful locations and if you are looking for uniqueness, my favorite place is Berea ~ I'm so impressed that the students 'self-fund' their education by contributing back to the community their skills and services "Berea College charges no tuition, and the sale of the student-made crafts featured here provides scholarships for Berea students. But long before a product is sold, the student craftsman delves into Appalachian artistic heritage, learns about materials and design, experiences the joy of creativity, and identifies the dignity of work well done.". If you like instruments - check Berea out for a Mountain Dulcimer! [just one example of an instrument 'invented' in the US Appalachian dulcimer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Berea, KY Woodworker: Warren A. May Mountain Dulcimers & Furniture]

Kentucky Horse Park Campground in Lexington is very nice. If you like horses, it's just up the road from the park. There is a lot to do in the area. If you like bourbon, there are plenty of distilleries to tour. If you like bluegrass music, the Rosine area has the home and gravesite of Bill Monroe.

As far as the Mammoth cave area, I'd stay away from camping at Beech Bend unless you are going to the park or races there. We stayed there in Oct and we were not impressed. They have a few shaded spots but most are like camping in a parking lot. I've never been to the KOA in Bowling Green but I've heard it's nice.

Dale Hollow Lake SP has a great campground, marina, lots of hiking trails, and if you like fishing / boating you can bring your own or rent a pontoon at the marina. KY has a great system of state parks.

We went to MC last year and stayed at the Yogi Bear campground which is just outside the National Park, I would stay there again. Plenty to do for sure!

Not sure if there is a campground there, but Natural Bridge state park has views like I have never seen before. A short walk through the woods or a quick ride up a ski type lift, and you are standing on the natural bridge. Its just south and east of Lexington. Have stopped there a couple times during our annual mission trip at KMBC

I can highly recommend Elizabeth Town Crossroads Campground, I stay there when I go down to KY for work. They have a great location well suited for any number of day trips and have a nice little catch and release pond.

Kentucky Campgrounds

Land between the Lakes (Land Between the lakes national recreation area) is a great place to camp. Lots to see and do there. Lots of paved bike/walking trails. Be sure to eat at Patti's (Pattis1880s.com) while you're there.
As mentioned above, the KY horse park is another good one.
