If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This was my first trip to camp in Southern KY, and after my trip this time I will definitely return. Ji. & Laura gave us out of the world hospitality. My car broke down and I needed a tow. Jim even offered to bring me to town! Offered us coffee while we waited for the tow truck. Camp sites are what you make them, which I love, rather then pre-built camp sites. That being said the property is very well maintained with plenty of acres to camp on! AirBnB for cabins, hipcamp.com for tent sites.
Backwoods camping at its finest!!
We absolutely loved it here!! It was very private and the campsite was very nice. I highly enjoyed backwoods camping by the creek here. We felt so very comfortable staying here and will be back!!
If you are looking for pure, clean countryside that has been preserved for the true nature goers, Summer Shoals is the place to go. Jim and Lora are such humble people and they just make you feel so welcome. Jim took time out of his day to take us around the property. Beautiful!
I love the way that Lora decorated the trails to primitive camping, the bath house, and the cabins. She is very talented. Wading in the waters of the Cumberland River was rejuvenating. We saw the Bald Eagle, went fishing, took hikes, and explored the river banks. We didn't want to leave. If reconnecting with your family without electronics is your goal then you need to visit this small slice of heaven.
Jim..Lora..Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and can't wait to see you again.
