As we moved north in Kentucky, the rich forests have given way to meadows and huge grass lawns. Without those forests, Cave Country just can’t quite achieve the idyllic tranquil beauty of the last few parks we have stayed in. None the less, the caretakers here have done a fantastic job landscaping their small park and making it something of an oasis of charm in an area occupied by lots of gas stations and cheap hotels. The surroundings may be less than amazing, but the park itself feels welcoming and peaceful.
Cave Country RV is quite close to Mammoth Caves National Park and is also close to food, shopping and vehicle service earning its location a best feature accolade. Amenities are limited to what I’d call full-service standards: full hookups, bathrooms with showers, and laundry. The bathrooms were both roomy, and sparkling clean which is enough to earn them a big thumbs up from me. The whole place seems very well cared for. The lots are nice level gravel, and each includes a small lawn and fire pit.
There were only two downsides to Cave Country. The wireless signal was on the weak side and had a hard time penetrating our RV. There was also a bit of noise from a nearby train track that penetrated the trailer, as well as just a hint of road noise from the nearby highway. Neither are right next to the park, but without any big trees to soak up the sound, it makes its way into the park.
The price is what seals my recommendation for Cave Country RV. It is the fist time in a while we have been able to stay under $40 a night. It isn’t low enough to call it a great bargain, but it is very reasonable considering the quality of the park and it’s location close to a popular attraction.
