We were blown away by the hospitality of our hosts and the incredible property that we got to stay on. The property is hundreds of acres of beautiful woods including a small lake, pond, hiking trails through the forest, and a hobby farm with sheep, goats, and guineas. There is also a pony and a donkey that roam part of the property. There are two beautiful Great Pyrenees dogs that watch over the property and they are very friendly and keep bears and other critters away. Kelly and Mike live on the property with their children and run a Christian camp for kids there. There were no campers present when we were there, but they let us use the bath house and all of the amenities that they have available for the kids. We set up our tent in a grassy area surrounded by trees and Mike provided us with a fire ring and firewood.
It was very private and extremely quiet during the night. Mike is truly one of the kindest and most helpful people I have ever encountered and was there to help every step of the way. I would recommend this experience for anyone staying in the area, it will definitely exceed your expectations!

What a place! Camping at Possum Trot blew our minds. My girlfriend and I practically had all 230 acres to ourselves, only sharing it with a few sheep and a couple of great pyrenees pups.
Both Mike and Kelly were very welcoming and were great hosts. After showing us to our site, Mike even gathered firewood and brought us to their private fishing pond where we later caught catfish, bass and sunfish. There are even bathrooms and showers, which were described as "cute" by my girlfriend. Lastly, with almost no light pollution, we were treated to a vivid night sky and even a few falling stars right from our camp site.
We live over 6 hours away, but if we ever find ourselves back in Kentucky, Possum Trot is where we'll stay.
Thanks again Mike and Kelly!
