Dog Creek CG (Nolin River Lake COE), Cub Run, KY

Date of Stay:  Sunday June 9 - Thursday June 13, 2013 (4 nights)

Rate:  $11/night (Access Pass discount)

Website:  Dog Creek CG
   890 Dog Creek Road
   Cub Run, KY 42729

Description:  Campground is about 20 miles from I-65 down some curvy, hilly roads.  No nearby grocery and no Verizon signal for phone or internet.  Paved roads and gravel sites.  Some tent sites without water or electric while some other sites have water and electric (some 30A and some 50A).  We were in waterfront site B22 which is ADA so we had a concrete pad and porch with 50A and water.  The lake is more like a river.

Activities:  There are many caves in this area but we spent a day at Mammoth Cave National Park and did the Mammoth Passage Tour.  It’s a dry cave so there aren’t very many formations but there are almost 400 miles of known passages.  We drove the back way to the Park which meant riding a small ferry over the Green River.  It only holds 3 cars.  Beautiful rolling hills in this countryside.  Tree limbs draped across the road in the National Park.  We would not be able to fit into the cg there.

Trash and Recycle:  Garbage bin near the exit (not a dumpster).  No recycle.
