Camping

There are 31 campgrounds in the Kentucky State Park system, spread out across the state so you’re not too far from being able to enjoy the outdoors. The campgrounds offer some of the best camping in Kentucky, and include sites for RVs, campers and tents. Five parks – Dale Hollow Lake, Pennyrile Forest, Taylorsville Lake, Carter Caves and Greenbo Lake – also offer equestrian-friendly sites. Several parks have special events for campers such as Camper Appreciation Weekend in April or special Halloween events in October. Set up a base camp and go hike a trail, cycle around the park or head out on one of Kentucky’s many lakes and rivers.

Each public campsite facility offers amenities such as restrooms, trail access, RV electric and water hookups, a fire ring, table and more — all in a beautiful setting with affordable rates. We suggest campers make reservations online or by phone for their selected dates so that they can pick their favorite site.

Reserve your KY State Park campsite today and enjoy the adventure of living outdoors for a few days.
