We set out on a new path, leaving behind a fast paced, jangled rhythm of being. Searching for something different we followed the distant beat of a slow drum...coming from the Earth~~older than the land itself.   A new rhythm emerged-slow, deliberate and magical. We invite you to follow that slow beating drum and discover you own magic at Barren River Magic!  Barren River Magic is situated right on the Little Barren River so launching your kayak, paddling, fishing or just floating in a tube is just a few steps away. There are many different areas around Barren River Magic to pitch a tent. Camping under the stars will not have a structure that you will be sleeping in but you will have the best view of the lights above.  Local fun activities include: Mammoth Cave, Cave City, Horse Cave, Diamond Caverns, Nolin Lake, Barren River, KY Down Under, and Green River Lake. Come and find your own magic at Barren River Magic.

Cool property, great host
This was such a beautiful and interesting property. The host let our friends set up their tent next to the camper and brought us the big fire pit so we could all hang out together. Other than our visit to mmmoth cave we spent the whole time here just hanging out and letting the kids run free!

Barren River Magic Cliffside
This was our second stay on 2d’s property. We came down just for a girls’ weekend away to enjoy Barren River Magic. As it was last time, everything was as described and we had a lovely stay. 2d checked in on us daily and made sure we had plenty of wood. We had a mishap with our van and 2d was happy to bring us tools to borrow and even willing to set up someone to help with repairs if we needed it. Next time we will have to invite him to the nightly fire to learn more about him and the property. We can’t say enough about the laid back peaceful atmosphere.

Creative, artistic camping!
This place is truly amazing. The creative design that has been put into this place is incredible! The fire pits are beautiful. Everything is so well thought out. We really enjoyed walking around & looking at all the creative structures. The owner, “2D” could not have been nicer. They provide water, showers, pit toilets, & plenty of wood. We will be back!

Perfect Outdoor Stay!
I loved my stay at the totem site! It was the perfect taste of the outdoors that I need and had a perfect fishing spot! Waking up to the sound of the creek running was amazing.

Barren River Magic Tent Camping
Peace and quiet, beautifully done…
What to say about this magnificent place, it’s novel in its approach. How you might ask? It was once a junkyard for cares that the owner has taken and created a wonderful escape if only for a weekend. We were greeted and taken care of by the hosts staff, if we needed anything they were right there to fulfill our requests. Please visit there are many different mediums for your staying pleasure from teepees to open air lodging, too primitive tent camping. 2d and staff have created an oasis away from the mundane and ordinary. I will leave you explore as we did the buildings and land that I must say was completely enthralling.

Unique Outdoor Experience
2D has an absolutely magical place. We stayed in the Dream Catcher and it was even better than I remembered (this was our second time staying there). There is so much to see and explore, the river is beautiful and refreshing. Make sure to bring hotdogs and s’mores to roast the fire pit is super cool and 2D always has a large stack of wood ready to go.

Homestead at Barren River Magic
Always a magical stay
Always a magical stay. Homestead was the perfect location for our yoga fest weekend. Perfect shelter for brief rain showers and accommodated our group perfectly.

This place is the absolute best! Waking up to the sounds of a creek and the sun streaming through the trees is the only way to do it. Plenty of FREE fire wood. Access to the river where we saw mating toads, an otter, and fields of trilliums. There's not another place like it!

Beautiful place to celebrate
Incredible weather and beautiful skies only added to the beauty of this giant property. The host and others there couldn’t have been nicer, and they provided us with gigantic amounts of fire wood for both nights. My wife and I want to renew our vows here one day. Can’t recommend more highly.

The host has an excellent set up. The sites are clean and unique. However, portable toilets need more frequent cleaning, grill was out of propane, and the shower needs to be improved. But, that said, I would stay there again.

Peaceful place to escape to
Our time at Barren River Magic was short but wonderful! We really enjoyed the Totem site, and the sounds of the running stream right behind the site was so peaceful to fall asleep and wake up to. We enjoyed a campfire and watched tons of lightning bugs. 2d stopped by just after we arrived to greet us and make sure we were all set. If we are ever in the area, we will definitely be back!

10/10 highly recommend!
We loved staying here! Will definitely return. Host was incredible, welcoming us to tour and visit everywhere on the property and bringing extra firewood over for our 2nd night. The land is 50+ acres with many unique and interesting buildings. All of the sites (we stayed at cliffside) are completely private. The cabin was incredibly comfortable especially for our usual non-glamping standards. It rained pretty hard overnight and we stayed completely dry, even with the open air design. River is easy to access but during the day we went to mammoth caves and were only at the campsite in the mornings and evenings. Loved it!

Beyond Words Amazing
Absolutely incredible. I don’t know if I will ever have the proper words to describe our stay at Dream Catcher, because the stay and all it encompassed was beyond words. So much so, that I have booked it again for next year and I am currently looking through my schedule to book two of the other stays there at the Magic of Barren River ! If you are on the fence or looking for just the perfect stay….I highly recommend booking now !

Gorgeous rustic open air cabin was just the right place to unwind and listen to the river, have a beautiful fall fire in the custom made fire bowl, sleep in nature with the songs of the night. A perfect getaway! 10/10 will be back again!

Great place for city get away
We had a great holiday weekend stay in our pop up camper! Our hound dog ran for hours and no crowded campground feel. Look at some of 2D’s other stay options - they’re adorable. We had electric hookup at slot and showers and no flush toilets close by.

Carriage House I
Tootie’s amazing property!
Tootie and his helper, Emily, we’re the coolest hosts ever. The property is beautiful and was so relaxing. In summer, I’d recommend to ask for something in the shade as the carriage house was like a greenhouse. It was so cute though and comfy! Lake access isn’t easy to find unless you’re shown and shower same thing. Just ask and they’ll take you around on an ATV :) Overall this was a great experience and there are festivals on the property too! Go here!! You won’t be disappointed!
