At just $8 per person per evening for tent camping, we are right where climbers and hikers want to be. Indoor camping (provide your own bedroll) is $10 per person per evening. Indoor camping must be reserved online. This includes free Wifi (password changes inquire at office), games, and the hottest showers in the Red River Gorge.
The campground is the hub of David Terrill's business here in the Red River Gorge. Climbers affectionately call our main building that houses restrooms, showers, wifi signal, games, a small general store the "Hangar." You will see why when you arrive. It kinda looks like an airplane hangar. It is quite large.
For your convenience, we sell ice and firewood here on the premises.
We also have a convenient self check in process. There is a kiosk on the front of the building with envelopes that have tent tags. Place your money in the envelope, make sure to retrieve your tent tag first (which is a tyvek wrist band inside the envelope). Place the tent tag on your tent in a visible location. Staff will come around to check your tent tags. This allows you to arrive at any time.

David Terrill wanted to create a place where climbers and hikers could feel at home. He was actually raised in Wolfe County, just a stone's throw away from the Campground and grew up with a cliffline literally right out of his back door.
David loves his guests and strives to give them a unique experience. He is proud of the internationally diverse crowd that the campground draws. He literally welcomes climbers from all over the world.
