This was our first trip, and as novices, we were not sure what to expect. The campground was very small and the sites were on top of each other. Our site was horrible to get into (we stayed at #15). I don’t know how anyone could ever pull into the next site #13 to us. Narrow roads, trees and a poorly situated dip in the road made it very difficult for us to maneuver into the spot. Also, our fire pit was so close to the camper pad we couldn’t open our awing. We had to haul the (heavy) picnic table back over to our site, because there were two at the next site over. Some of the other sites, which were recommended to us, were booked, but we found upon our arrival that #23, 36 and 37 looked very nice. We were near the bathhouse, which was old and dated, but found it to be clean and well-heated. I showered there, and had plenty of hot water. Showers areas were roomy enough, and again well heated. It was still very chilly on this Easter Weekend, so I was happy to go to a heated bathroom. As recommended, we bought firewood locally (at the campground) but found it to be fresh wood, which did not burn at all. We loved the campground activities. They just opened a “gold mine” area but we didn’t do that with the kids. We did go on the cave tour (highly recommended). There were many closed tours due to the unfortunate outbreak of “white-nose syndrome” (killing bats) but we had a delightful tour. The kids and I attended a haunted ghost story at the Lodge one evening. The hiking was great, and we did the moderate (few rough climbs) 3.5 mile trail around the campground (recommended). Overall, the camping sites were much less desirable than the overall camping experience. I would love to go back but will definitely avoid the sites in the middle of the grounds and find another place to buy firewood. No alcohol on the allowed property and if you want a cocktail, prepare to drive 30 minutes into Moorhead because Carter County is dry! We camped here in a Motorhome.

The rate we got was with discount added. We would have gave the campground a 10, but the sites were a little close for our liking. Other than that we loved the park. The caves were OK, but the trails were outstanding. People were friendly and it was a really family friendly campground. We will be staying here again when we get a chance. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

(These are comments for a one-night stay) The campground was an 8 or 9 for us, but the getting-there was a little more difficult. Although the roads into the campground were newly paved, it took us 18 minutes to get the 6.5 curvy miles from the Interstate to the campground. That was a little more than the map-shown 4 miles, and for a one-night stay, a little far. The host was very pleasant and helpful. We wouldn't probably do an over nighter again, but would for an extended stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
