Thank you for considering Clayton Geneva memorial campground for your camping trip. Please read the entire description including our rules and regulations. Also be sure to view the site map. The gravel driveway to the sites is passable with any vehicle. We offer camping ranging from primitive tent sites, to an actual cabin. We have some construction going on currently on at the main cabin on the property. Construction takes place 9am-5pm daily. A deck & siding is being added. 10/1-11/15 Hikers, Horses and riders welcome, located a couple miles from Daniel Boone National Forrest, seemingly endless trails through some of the most beautiful country. Bring your canoe and kayaks. Located 16 miles from Cumberland Falls State Park. Located 11 miles from Sheltowee Trade Adventure Park. Located 11 miles from Kentucky Splash Water Park. Clayton Geneva Camp Ground began as a retreat for our family since the 70's. My grandparents, Donald Clayton Russell & Jewel Geneva (Davis) Russell, purchased this little piece of heaven to get away from the hustle and bustle of Cincinnati life. Judy was born in a little cabin just down the road. Judy & Don along with many family members have made cherished memories here over the years. We want to share its beauty with you and your family. Guests love staying here "We stayed in Birdsong cabin for the Halloween campout weekend. The cabin was ready for us upon arrival and very clean. We enjoyed the privacy of our covered porch and fire ring. The bird feeders hanging all around the cabin are wonderful to watch all the birds during the day. The community fire ring is close enough to enjoy with other campers, but not to close that we could hear anyone in our cabin. Amber and Michael checked on our needs many times during our stay. They hosted a chili cook-off that we greatly enjoyed and passed out candy to all the kids. Overall a great time and experience. We will stay here again."

Riverbank Overlook with Electric ⚡️
I was lucky to have the riverbank sites to myself because I was there New Year's Eve. These sites are right on the riverbank and it was so peaceful. All you hear are the birds and the sound of the river flowing. I wen up to use the bath house which is brand new and has a nice shower, toilet, and sink. They even had a heater installed to make it nice and comfortable. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. I had ordered firewood and he brought it as soon as I got there. Amber helped me with directions and getting set up once I got there. My site also had wifi and electric set up. If you are looking for a nice quiet place to get away from it all I would suggest this location. Thumbs up!!

Camping in the cold
Gorgeous views while driving out! We happened to visit in the bitter cold, but we have this on our list to go back to in the future!! The host was very friendly & welcoming. Walked down to the river with our dog & it seemed like a really cool spot, wish we could've stayed longer.

just book it!! great campsite
We very much enjoyed staying at this super affordable family owned campground! Because of the season change, we were able to view the glistening river by our RV site, which was such a treat. Not too far from Corbin, Williamsburg and most importantly, Cumberland falls! This was the perfect place to stay, ran by a super nice, friendly family! As a couple who is traveling the country in just their camper, it’s a shot in the dark booking at places you’ve never been to with your life residing on their property- we would totally come here again and recommend it to family/friends ever visiting the area. Even better/felt more safe than the last KOA we went to. Thank you for having us!

River Views
The host were very welcoming and inviting. The sites along the river are beautiful. They offer great views of the Cumberland River. Sites are primative but wi-fi is available. The camp offers showers amd vending machines. You might need a vehicle with high ground clearance or a 4x4 to drive down to the primitive sites. Firewood is available. Cumberland Falls is a short drive. Cumberland Falls is one of the only places to see the Moonbow. So stop here and camp. The area has plenty to offer. Also in the summertime you have the option to kayak/tube or float directly back to your camp. This is one of our favorite sites. We cannot wait to come back.

Will be coming back
I absolutely loved Amber and the camping area. She is so lovely and welcoming. The place is serene, with the river being heard in the background of rustling leaves. Our site was long and had an easy access to the river, also easy to drive up to. I don’t recommend using a car that’s low to get to the camp sites. The beginning of the road down is rocky and steep, low cars would not handle it well. My car (Mazda3) was fine but if I had a SUV or Truck, I’d prefer to take that. I took my two large dogs and a small dog. They have a blast running around. Very dog friendly. Amber also directed us to a near by waterfall. It was nestled in one of the most beautiful scenery I've seen. I will definitely be coming back here. You are close to Cumberland without having to deal with all the tourist that go there. Excellent camping experience.

We loved tent camping on Michael’s land. The river is beautiful and it was a great place for our family to relax and play. The host was very helpful and hospitable.

Sycamore Cove
Sycamore cove is a beautiful spot. Getting to the water is a little challenging but the Cumberland river is great for a little dip. I’d recommend bringing some tubes as most of the river is very shallow and a tube makes swimming around a lot easier. Our hostess, Amber was very welcoming and provided us a lighter as we forgot to bring one to start our campfire.

I loved that the fact of the privacy, I had my own access to the river plus a nice sire ring made of beautiful river rocks. It was peaceful and a must see to believe spot on the river.

This was an amazing place to camp. The views of the river were spectacular. It is hard to find such good views while still having electric. Our campervan made it down and up without a problem and they allowed dogs. Would definately recommend this place to anyone.

The place was beautiful. We had the whole place to ourselves and loved being able to lounge around the rivers edge with nothing but the sounds of nature around you. The hosts were kind, helpful and went out of the way to make the trip special for the whole family. You absolutely must ask about the waterfall down the road and plan to spend a couple hours there. I don't think I've ever seen such a beautiful place. 10 out of 10 would suggest to anyone.

This was our first hip camp and it was great, very secluded and rustic location. Full hook-ups and lots of peace and quiet. We did the pony experience for our daughters and it was a huge hit! Amber is so friendly and helpful. Thanks for a great stay!

Such kind, hospitable folks that want to make sure you have the best experience possible! Prior to our stay, Kentucky had extreme floods, including the river the site is on. They made sure we were moved to somewhere more inland and checked in on us, also providing firewood and fresh veggies from their garden. Beautiful spot — highly recommend!

Birdsong Cabin @ Clayton Geneva
Lovely Cabin
I loved Bird Song Camp. It was beautiful as was the area around it. Amber was so nice, gave me ideas on places to deems and offered to help me if I needed anything. The sun on was 43 steps from the portable restroom. There will soon be a shower with a regular toilet hooked up by the cabin. The regular shower and toilet were only about 100 steps away. The cabin had everything I needed -fridge, microwave, AC, internet, tv, cable and most importantly a really comfortable bed. There were tons of birds and butterflies. The river was just a short walk away. I would gladly stay there again if I was in the area. Thank you for a wonderful 4 day stay.

Glamping
This cabin was a blast for the holiday weekend! First, the cabin was super clean, the bed was incredibly comfortable, and it had all the amenities a young family would need. The campground itself was such a fun community of people. There were nightly movies, potlucks, organized activities and the property couldn’t have been ran by a nicer couple. Highly recommended!
