This site is beside Marrowbone Creek and next to the trees. A large site. 120’ x 77’ with natural privacy barriers. Located on Rt. 90. Part of John Muir’s trek across America. A small swimming hole. Greatly appreciated on hot days. Centrally located between Dale Hallow Lake, Green River Lake and Lake Cumberland. Not far from the Cumberland River. (A fisherman’s paradise) Within 45 minutes of Mammoth Cave & the Corvette Museum. 1/8 mile from the 1983 acre Marrowbone State Forest & Wildlife Management Area. It is a great location for wildlife watching, photography, hunting or just a great place to escape the world. Stop by our gift and jewelry shop, Wood Metal and More, and say hi to Chris. She would love to meet you.

I thoroughly enjoyed this campsite, so much so we booked an extra night. The space was very well maintained and provided a beautiful piece of paradise for us. We also enjoyed the starry nights, creek, and wildlife. I highly recommend Jeff's campsite! Thank you for a wonderful vacation!!!

Nice area to camp. The creek was very pretty. We enjoyed the view from our hammocks. A great place for families to hang out, slow down and enjoy each other’s company

The campsite was spacious, clean and private. The creek was so pretty and clear. Easy to walk and even sit a chair in, read and enjoy. I really appreciated the availability of fire wood!

Jeffrey’s place is very nice with the stream that runs at the back of the property. Like a few of the tent campers we set up our tent along the stream which is not a designated camp site as the hosts point out but we had their permission to set up camp there. The ground near the stream is very soft and it was challenging to find a flat spot to set up our four person tent. We also noticed some broken glass that we had to move aside where we wanted to set up our tent. I do feel like we made a mistake not setting up camp in the designated camp site as we were not prepared to camp primitively. We should have taken use of the table and designated fire pit. One of the other reviewers mentioned there were some logs that could be used to build a fire, these were very damp so I would bring your own wood. As other reviewers mentioned the outhouse which is a composting toilet is quite a walk away from the camp sites, but it is very neat and clean and was an enjoyable experience for my first time using a composting toilet. There were a lot of gnats, ants and quite large spiders down by the creek, so again I would use the designated camp sites. That being said I have major issues with the fact that we booked this site because it was advertised as only being one site. When we got there we noticed there are three sites in total. They are screened from each other but definitely not a secluded camp site if that’s what you’re thinking. And as other campers mentioned there was a considerable amount of road noise. The scenery was beautiful especially having breakfast by the creek and Chris was very helpful in directing us to our campsite. I can not say if I would stay here again or not.
