Get away—far away—at Houchin Ferry Campground. Accessible almost exclusively through the Green River Ferry (6 miles from the Mammoth Cave Visitor Center), the campground has picnic tables and fire rings as well as most of the camping basics, including fresh water. The campground’s secluded vibes make for great alone time with your fishing pole or boat, and first dibs on the River’s fresh muskellunge, bluegill, catfish, bass, perch, and crappie, Before you head out for paradise, check the weather forecast—on the floodplains, sudden rainstorms can cause rapid flooding.

This is group camping and you must register at the visitors center before crossing on the ferry. It's a long way back if you forget anything and the ferry operates from 6am-9pm, I think.
