Amazing property on the edge the Daniel Boone National Forest. Beautiful quiet sites on the river side. Road in was a bit rough, but it was so worth it. Ten sites available, but on the night I stayed, I had the place to myself and slept in the car with the back gate lifted, and it was a dream. So secluded and peaceful. It's a place I'd stay at again and again if I were in the area.

Views of the river from my site!Plenty of spots to hang around in a hammockpeople camperPerfect place for morning coffee.

Key Positives:
BEAUTIFUL view of the river, campsites right next to the river, small simple campsites, sanded sites were super comfortable for sleeping on, and not crowded. We plan to bring our homeschooling group here for a trip in the future!
To help others prepare/ FYI:
GPS (Google maps in our case) does not take you directly there, you have to be vigilant to find it, we have AT&T and it did NOT pick up there (so we had to drive about 15 min. To get signal and find on internet/call owner), the landowner is absentee and we don't mind that at all- but if you are high maintenance you may have issues with no reception, there is no private designated rest area and signs state that "you are being photographed" (may be a concern for those that are modest), we did have some neighbors come and ask us what we were up to (residential area but you can't see homes from the camping area) they were nice to us and said they were just making sure everything was okay, there is a rooster farm near by and they do crow in the morning.
We will definitely go back and stay this summer, and do recommend it for the low key, low maintenance camper!

Bottom camp areaThe children loved it, not many bugs at all on sanded camp sitesBeautiful viewsThis is the house that you will come to when you drive down a long gravel/dirt drive (barley viable from main)

The campground is awesome. It’s right on the Cumberland River. Very peaceful and away from everything. I will definitely be going back very soon.

Had a wonderful camping trip with the family over Labor Day. One night there were two other groups camping and the other night we had the place to ourselves.

We pulled a popup down the road. Was glad to have a bit extra ground clearance but saw a Honda Civic come down after us. He was a bit nervous heading back up after a rain though. Can’t imagine a car wouldn’t bottom out a bit on some of the rocks.

The hosts were great and it was cool to learn their plans for development of the site. They brought a load of wood and games for the guests.

Great access to go swim on the river. A peaceful beautiful place to camp. Highly recommended.

Amazing place!! Beautiful, peaceful, and the owners are awesome. We swam, hiked the Daniel Boone National Forest & fished. The sanded sites were perfect for tent camping. The tree covered campsite is absolutely perfect, cool mornings and day shade. There is even a local guy that will deliver firewood to your campsite!!! You cant go wrong with Clayton Geneva. Thanks for a wonderful stay, we will be back again and again.
