For a true “ghost stories by the campfire” experience, you really can’t top Mammoth Cave Campground. Home of the largest cave system in the world, the Mammoth Cave Park transports its visitors to Middle Earth (hobbits not included, sadly) for ranger-led tours. When you’re feeling a bit Vitamin D-deficient, the rest of the park offers nearly 84 miles of trails—many of which are bike- and horse-friendly—and more than 30 miles of the Green and Nolin Rivers, favorites of boaters and fishers/lovers of muskellunge, bluegill, catfish, bass, perch, and crappie.

Drop some Mammoth Cave Campground knowledge on us.
Hipcamper William

My girlfriend and I drove across the country, and this was one of our favorite spots we camped.

We were there on a particularly quiet night and we wish our schedule would have let us stay a few more nights!

You definitely must take a tour (or two) of the caves!

Hipcamper Kelsie

Fun place to explore and an easy location to check out the largest cave network in North America. Bring a jacket for the caves though.

Hipcamper Ryan

Fills up fast during events at the park, online booking is best to be safe.
