What is there to do?

How do you know you are visiting a campground that is perfect for families? When they are family owned and operated...that's how!

The Foster family run Harlan County Campground in Kentucky, and as a family themselves they know what they would want out of a family getaway experience. Sounds perfect!

Bring along those RVs because there are hook-ups for you. If you want to take it back to basics, there are primitive areas for tents, as well as spots with electric should you want.

Fancy trying something new? They have cabins too! These are perfect for those families who don't have their own RVs and tents. All of the cabins have showers and bathrooms, they have heating and a/c, and those food lovers will love the kitchens, BBQ grills, as well as picnic tables and firepits.

Harlan County Campground also have on-site two shower houses, a laundry mat, and propane re-fill station for your convenience.

Love the outdoors? Great, because you will love the kayak rentals that the campground offers. They are a great way for those active kids to get out into nature. Harlan County Campground even provide a shuttle service with the rental, as well as a number of different routes to choose from.

On-site they have a trail shop which has all the essentials you would need for camping, as well as souvenirs for you to take home!

See, we told you they were family friendly!
