Patrick's Point Campground consists of 212 acres of beautiful mountain and Cumberland River front property. The Back County Primitive campground is secluded wooden river front property with a private gate. This campground is only a few miles by car to Cumberland Falls State Park, Big Southfork National Park, and thousands of acres of the Daniel Boone National Forest.  Patrick's Point is within the Daniel Boone National Forest, London Ranger District quarter. Patrick's Point is a fantastic location yet very protected and private for a base camp to access the many activities in this area. The Primitive campground is ideal for car or tent camping right on a World Class fishing river. The Primitive campsite has no restrooms or water. The property has many different areas for tent camping.  You can drive to your primitive camp site on a dirt road weather permitting. Many private woods walking tails along the river and mountain slopes with an abundance of mountain laurel, ferns, native holly's, large hardwoods, pines, and wildlife. The property and your camping experience includes easy access to the Cumberland River and has a canoe/kayak launch. You and your family will enjoy swimming/wading/fishing or just relaxing in cool rushing water. Remember to bring your running shoes and bicycle. Your a short drive to Cumberland Falls State Park and many hiking trails in the National Forest. You can experience world class mountain bike trails, rock climbing, hiking, kayak, river tube, canoe, swimming or just relax in a hammock.  Patrick's Point is only 14 mile upstream by river from Cumberland Falls State Park . You will be camping in the Appalachian Mountains on the river. Less than 20 minutes away are art galleries, many restaurants, brew pubs, shopping and the University of the Cumberland's. We have a large parking area for horse trailers with miles of trails to enjoy in the National Forest. Pitch your tent in the back of our 212 acre farm and stay completely secluded from people.  You will drive almost a half mile down a dirt road past where the public road ends.  Stay as connected or as disconnected as you want.

Patrick and Angelica were wonderful hosts. Excellent communication and very welcoming and helpful once we arrived. We stayed at the primitive camping site and loved it. Very private and directly on the river. We brought our canoes and took a trip up Jellico Creek - it was beautiful! We went on several hikes - lots of great options within 25 minutes. The campsite was excellent for star gazing.

Thank you so much for your kind words, Jeanna. We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us—and we agree, Jellico Creek is truly a gem! We count ourselves lucky for customers like you. We look forward to you returning again in the future! I'm glad you had a good camping experience.

Patrick's point exceeded our expectations. We met Patrick when we arrived, he took us on a short tour of the property, showed us good fishing locations and suggested what kind of tackle to use. He was very knowledgeable on the area and about the river.

The campsite was just as described, very primate and right next to the water. We utilized Patrick to shuttle us and our vehicles to the take out point. We will be back!
