Great experience. nice place
I just returned from 4 days camping at Patrick’s point. I had a great time. Patrick was very attentive to my needs. His information on the river and take out was vary helpful to me. I am an avid whitewater paddler with a lot of experience. The section of the Cumberland River from his campground down to the Falls of the Cumberland was an excellent choice. Not whitewater, but a beautiful section of the river. Mostly a Class I but it has a few Class 2’s, nothing threatening, just fun. Totally do-able to most recreational paddlers. The takeout is at the Falls but it’s totally safe, with plenty of time and space to exit the river before the Falls. Just don’t miss the takeout! I highly recommend this campground and the river run. Patrick helped me with my shuttle needs and the required parking permit, it was free just have to notify the rangers and your vehicle is safe. Patrick also made me feel sure my campsite and gear were safe. Bonus: Patrick is a very Interesting man with an impressive background. Be sure to have him share some of his stories. I also camped near some neighbors who I enjoyed very much. I will definitely be back and I will share this place with family and friends.
Great spot, and host!!!
I just returned from 4 days at Patrick’s Point. Great time! Patrick was very helpful to me. He went out of his way to ensure I had a pleasant time. His knowledge of the river and the surrounding areas was of great value to me. He helped me with my shuttle and the required free parking pass to facilitate my paddle trip. I highly recommend the stay and the paddle from camp to the Falls. I am an experienced paddler of mainly whitewater. That particular kayak run is beautiful. A easy class 1 with a few class 2 rapids(very easy and non threatening) It’s do-able to most recreational paddlers. I highly recommend that trip. The take out at Cumberland Falls is safe and very easy. Can’t miss it as you pass under the stone bridge at the park and exit on river left. Paddlers with little or no experience on class 2 will find it not only beautiful and fun, but a real confidence builder. I will return to both the campground and the river.
Beautiful riverfront camping
Patrick's point a wonderful place to stay along side the Cumberland river in Williamsburg Kentucky my wife and I stayed on lot #1 under some nice shade trees a perfect spot with a view of the river the host are great people and very friendly and will do anything for you they have bathroom's and ice so no running around looking for it so bring your tent, Rv, van or rent a little river house from them so if you like fishing, kayaking, swimming, or even hunting they will take care of everything 5 stars all the way also pet friendly
I cannot say enough about how wonderful this place was. The owners were so warm and welcoming, I got the full story and tour as soon as I arrived. Dennis was incredibly knowledgeable and willing to share information and adventures he thinks you’ll enjoy and will happily engage in conversation about all things. They have many plans for the future of the entire grounds and I would absolutely love to return in the future. I do t know how to give more than 5 stars but they certainly deserve it!
Great experience all the way around
The owner's were extremely nice and helpful! They are good downtoearth people, willing to go out of their way to make you happy. Everything was clean and nice. Was quite throughout the night. It's more of a place for couples or families, rather than teens that want to drink and stay up all night. Plenty of space to park. Good paved roads all the way to the camp. Can see the river from the campsites. Great experience all the way around. Highly recommended!!
We had a wonderful time at the campsite. It area was beautiful and our hosts were amazing. Very interesting stories from the host and so accommodating. We were able to rent a canoe for ourselves and two dogs and the host even gave us a ride to the drop in point! The area has some beautiful scenery. There is even a small Mennonite food stand close by that has amazing yeast rolls (unfortunately, the pumpkin bread was sold out). We had such a great time and I would love to visit again.
My partner and I stayed here for three nights Over Labor Day. Affordable, out of the way, and wonderful hosts (very chatty if you’re into that). We were treated very well by the friendly hosts and everything was quite easy, the hosts also took time out to check if we needed anything and gave great recommendations in terms of local hiking which was our focus. The location, being so southern and away from most major cities meant it wasn’t very crowded which was a plus, especially on Labor Day weekend. Being directly on the River is a huge plus, especially if you like to fish, canoe or kayak.
It seems the whole operation is relatively new and getting better all the time. However there are a few issues as a result of that newness and some needed spatial upgrades. The campsites are placed too near one another is a main concern but they were shady. We chose one on the end of the line of campsites along the upper riverbank to mitigate the closeness but had to sacrifice a bit of even ground to do so. The bathrooms are new which is a plus but if it was busier I could see this being a problem since there were only two bathrooms, one toilet once in one shower each so if it was busier I’m sure it would be a bit problematic for everyone passing through. The bathrooms are also located directly next to an RV site So you kind of have to walk through that site to get to the bathrooms from the campsitesso you kind of have to walk through that site to get to the bathrooms from the campsites. And those two bathrooms share a wall But the wall only goes 7 feet high so there’s a huge gap between them which seems pretty unfortunate considering you may need to shower while someone’s doing their business practically 3 feet away. but the wall only goes 7 feet high so there’s a huge gap between them which seems pretty unfortunate considering you may need to shower while someone’s doing their business practically 3 feet away. I highly recommend they close that up and just consider what ventilation is needed to mitigate that slower airflow. The bathrooms have been painted a poorly chosen color yellow but it looked like it had been left unfinished for a while which was curious. And noted by our neighbor as well.
Also, considering the very rural location and nearby options for buying firewood, the five bucks for five barely seasoned sticks we bought seemed unnecessarily steep - we felt the need to pick up firewood elsewhere after buying it on site and were pleased to get twice the amount for the same cost. I understand the idea of a captive audience but it seems more like a necessary convenience for guests as opposed to a chance to tag on extra expense.
There is a ton of potential in this place and I’m sure it will grow to be more comfortable, more spacious, and successful since the location is good and the hosts are really wonderful people. It’s essentially a rough diamond that needs to be polished here and there.
