A pet- and family-friendly campground in Kentucky's Cave Country, Singing Hills RV Park & Campground offers a tranquil and relaxing place to stay all year round.
Named for the birdsong you're likely to hear at the start and end of each day you stay here, this park sits just outside Mammoth Cave National Park and can be easily accessed from I-65. It offers several pull-through sites with full hookups, as well as primitive tent sites and a group camping area.
One of the first things you'll likely notice about Singing Hills is just how clean it is. The grassy park and its gravel sites are well-maintained, while the cleanliness of the restrooms regularly draws glowing reviews from visitors.
There's a decent amount of space between most sites so you won't feel like you're right on top of your neighbors, and free Wi-Fi is available throughout the park. However, not all sites are completely level, so you may need to take a little time to get your RV just right.
Rates are as follows: $27 a night for a primitive tent site, $36 a night for a 30-amp site, and $40 a night for a 50-amp site. Dogs are welcome in the park but must be kept on a leash. They're also not allowed in the bathroom or office, and must be cleaned up after at all times.
While perhaps not as kid-friendly as some RV parks, Singing Hills still offers a number of recreational activities to encourage some outdoor fun. There's a pretty fishing pond where you can wet a line -- no fishing license required -- but there is a catch-and-release policy. Loaner bamboo fishing poles are available, and the park also boasts a horseshoe pit, volleyball, basketball hoop, and fire pits with grates.
If you want to explore the local area, the Mammoth Cave Visitor Center is less than 15 minutes' drive away. Mammoth Cave is one of the country's oldest and most spectacular attractions, and there are several other caves nearby. Unfortunately, while leashed pets are allowed in the national park, they're not permitted in any cave, so keep this in mind if you're planning a day trip.
The owners at Singing Hills RV Park & Campground are also more than happy to offer advice on the best attractions nearby -- there are myriad online reviews from previous guests praising the owners for their hospitality -- so why not take some time to explore the local area with your canine pal?
