Kentucky Campgrounds

If you're looking for some summer relaxation that the entire family will enjoy, consider staying at one of the many campgrounds in Kentucky that promise a variety of fun recreational activities and a chance to take in the beautiful scenery that characterizes the bluegrass state.

Kentucky state parks are popular places to go camping. They offer some of the cleanest campgrounds in Kentucky and are generally very affordable. The Lake Cumberland State Resort Campground in Jamestown is best known for the array of activities that it offers its campers. Fishing swimming, canoeing, and miniature golf are just some of the activities that campers can look forward to. Camping at this park is most popular in July and August and closes from November to March.

If your idea of a good campground includes amenities that you are used to at home, consider renting an RV and heading to the Lake Cumberland RV Park. The park features an indoor heated pool, wireless internet service, and many of the campgrounds are equipped with TV outlets. In addition to the many golf courses in the Lake Cumberland area, the campground also offers a driving range that allows campers a chance to practice their golf swing before heading out to the golf course.

If you're looking to do some cave crawls on your next trip to Kentucky camping trip, consider pitching a tent at the Carter Caves State Park Campground in Olive Hill. Carter Caves is chalk full of fun activities, such as cave walking tours and canoe trips on the lakes and rivers in the area. Within walking distance to the campground is a 9 hole golf course and a restaurant. Visiting the campground during Halloween weekend is fun for a weekend of spooky weekend Halloween festivities and ghost stories. Unlike other Kentucky campgrounds, much of your time will be spent underground exploring over 20 caverns. A 30-foot underground waterfall called Cascade Cave is a breathtaking natural wonder, as is the X Cave where visitors can learn how the earth has shaped the cave for the millions of years.

Kentucky camping near lakes and rivers provides excellent opportunities for fishing and boating. At the Big Bear Resort on Lake Kentucky, campers can look forward to fishing, boating, and swimming in a family friendly atmosphere. There are campsites located right on the beach or inland campsites. If tent camping isn't your favorite style of accommodation, condos and cottages are available to rent. There is also a place in the campground for RVs, complete with full electricity hookups. The campground is considered one of the least rustic of all campgrounds in Kentucky. Long are the days of going without a hot shower on a camping trip. At Big Bear Resort campground, campers can look forward to hot showers and other modern facilities.
