Kentucky is a great place to head when you want to do some serious camping. Your trouble will be less about finding a good place but more about narrowing down some really great options. To help you consider where you’ll take your next great RV vacation, let our crew at Greenwood RV Rentals & Sales share with you a few of our top picks.
All these Kentucky destinations are within a couple hours drive of our Louisville-area location. You can easily pick up your motorhome rental and be on your way to a fantastic summer getaway.
1. Cumberland Falls State Park
Located about 2.5 hours from Louisville, Cumberland Falls State Park has about everything you need for a fantastic RV vacation. You can choose from a number of outdoor recreation activities (hiking, swimming, birding, and so on) and just enjoy the beauty of the surroundings. The falls themselves are breathtaking and definitely worth the trip.
2. Mammoth Cave National Park
You can’t visit Kentucky without spending some time at this national landmark. You’ll never forget your first visit to Mammoth Cave. Because the cave system is so extended and because you can find so many other activities to do in the area, we recommend that you plan to spend several days at Mammoth Cave National Park. The park is located almost directly an hour and a half south of Louisville.
3. Lake Cumberland State Park
Not to be confused with Cumberland Falls, this southern state resort park is a family favorite. If your main interest outside of camping in your motorhome rental is water recreation, then Lake Cumberland is where you want to be. This huge lake system is just over two hours south of Louisville and has everything you need for water fun. You can go boating, fishing, swimming, water skiing, kayaking, and more.
