At Carter Caves State Resort Park, you’ll find a whole smorgasbord of amenities. If you stay at the fieldstone lodge, you’ll get a private balcony or patio looking out into the forest; if you cozy up in one of the cottages, you’ll get a wood-burning fireplace, a dishwasher and microwave (Hello, conveniences!). If you want to camp out with your horse, there’s sites near the bathhouses, laundry room, and playgrounds. After a day roaming around in the caves, any of these sunny spots will do just nicely.

We have been coming to Carter Caves Camp ground for seven years with the kids and grandkids. Mike that takes great care of the campground and always takes time to say hello and welcomes us back, has an amazing team that keeps the bathrooms kept up, and the grounds are always kept up. We love the friendly staff,Katie, Ashley, many more . We look forward to the haunted trail, and all the other amenities that come with the campground glow in the dark putt putt golf, karaoke which our whole family got mike and his team to join us what a blast that was 2019,, we put the kids and grandkids up in the cottages, which was wonderful.
The walking trails are wonderful, deer, fox, all kinds of birds, squirrels,
Thanks for making us Happy Campers.
