Setting up base at Cave Country RV Campground puts you in the front row seat to discover Mammoth Cave National Park, housing the longest cave network on the planet and only 4 miles from the campground.
RVs are gifted with pull-through sites on gravel pads and manicured grass either side. Some sites are sloping and may need leveling blocks. Full hook-ups include electricity (30/50 amp), with water, sewer, and access to cable TV and the internet.
The roads are also gravel and wide enough for the bigger rigs to maneuver around the camp. All sites feature a picnic table and fire ring. Daily rates are from $41 to $47. Peak times at the camp are holidays and summer break. If you’re traveling by car and want comfortable accommodation with all the trimmings of home, the park rental is fully furnished and comes with a functioning kitchen, TV, and linen.
Restrooms, showers, and a laundry are supremely clean with the campground staff always helpful. The games room and mini-gym keep you fit and entertained while a clubhouse and pavilion could be the venue for your next family get-together. The camp store has a variety of supplies with a fully fenced dog park so your pup can exercise off-leash. The dog area is huge with lush, green grass and seats for owners to supervise. Around the camp, your pooch must be on a leash and their waste disposed of. It pays to bring your own doggy bags as not all camps provide them.
There may not be a ton of kid-friendly stuff to do, but nearby is Dinosaur World, a Jurassic themed park where junior paleontologists will be wide-eyed at the sight of Goliath dinosaur replicas. The Jesse James Riding Stables is a great way to introduce children to the joys of horseback riding, while zip lining and entering the mysterious underground world of Mammoth Caves are adventures they'll never forget.
