My 4 night stay at Rockcastle was perfect!! Quiet and very clean, I loved being just steps from the river. Dogs can run freely which was great as my pup absolutely enjoyed himself.

This campground was the perfect home base for our kayaking tour of the Rockcastle River and bicycling tour of Highway 490 at Livingston. John, the owner, is the perfect host and goes out of his way to make sure all campers enjoy their stay.

Beautiful location! It’s easy to miss so keep an eye out for their sign; our GPS told us we had another 2.5 miles left to go when we arrived. The river is beautiful, the hosts are friendly, and our dog got so much energy our running around and playing with another camper’s dog she slept the rest of the day! Would definitely stay again.
