Kevin does a great job making everyone welcome. The only reason the camp is a 4 is because of the distance between camping and stalls. I gave the trails a 4 because of the need to clear some trees that were difficult to ge around.

Attended the Bubba Thanksgiving trail ride at Mammoth Cave Horse Camp. We had a great time. The trails and camp was in great shape. There was a camp pot luck dinner on Saturday that was awesome, more food then you could imagine. We will be back to this ride next year. As always the Kevin and his staff are great host.

We attended the Halloween ride at Mammoth Cave. Once again the campground was in perfect condition and the trails were in great shape. The park service was out during the week working on the Raymer Hollow to make it better. The Halloween party at Mammoth Cave was the best ever. If you have never been to Mammoth Cave Horse Camp for the Halloween weekend ride you should put it on your list to do.

Howdy Trail riders! You've probably never heard of me, but I am Brett Donner, founder of the Kentucky Trail Riders Association. I probably should not be posting a review. It may be showing that I am bias. Which very well may be true. However, I have been going to Mammoth Cave Horse Camp since it opened. To say it has come a long way is accurate. The campground has always been fantastic and the folks that run the place are second to none. How it operates and how people are treated there is rarely found in the United States. From the moment you arrive, you are called by your first name and treated like you are the only person they are serving. I have attended every KYAQHA ride since Sarah Hayes started holding them at Mammoth Cave Horse Camp. How to show thank you and praise to Sarah and her group for putting on such an incredible ride is beyond me. First night dinner, RIBEYE STEAK off of the grill!, baked potato! Green beans and all the fixins and salad and desserts. AMAZING! I know I started out talking about the campground and the trails. In the early years, the trails were a little rough, poorly marked, narrow, footing was rough for a billy goat, but the forest was beautiful and it made it well worth the difficult trails to ride in such a beautiful area. Well no more! The trails are wide! The footing is incredible! Rained most of the day Saturday and Sunday morning the trails were perfect! Not a single puddle or mud hole. The base drains like nothing I have every seen. The grade is PERFECT to keep the trails from getting mud holes. The trail master needs more than an AT-A-BOY! for this project. All I can say is "SPOILED!" The hosts at Mammoth Cave Horse Camp spoil the trail riders, the trails, spoil the trail riders, and the forest remains as beautiful as ever. This place has it all, gentle easy riding for us old folks, more challenging areas for those looking for an exciting ride and miles and miles of trails for the endurance rider. If there ever was a perfect place to camp and ride, Mammoth Cave Horse Camp has provided all of us that place. We travel a little over 2 hours to get to Mammoth Cave Horse Camp. There where folks from as far away as Connecticut, lots of folks from Northern Indiana and Southern Tennessee. Mammoth Cave Horse Camp remains the number 1 five star rated horse camp in the world for all the reasons I listed above and more. Hope to see you all on the trail! Mammoth Cave Horse Camp isn't the only place to ride and camp, it's the BEST! place to ride and camp!

We spent the Memorial Day Weekend at Mammoth Cave Horse Camp. The atmosphere at Mammoth Cave Horse Camp is second to none. The hospitality is what you would expect at a fine resort. Meals were provided on this particular ride and the food was out of this world. We love coming here for the trails, but the part that keeps us coming back is how we are treated by the owners and the staff. It's a little over 2 hour drive for us. I wouldn't hesitate to drive 8 or 10 hours to camp and ride there. Visit Mammoth Cave Horse Camp, you will have a great stay.

We appreciate all the hard work and will return again soon. This is the 5th year we celebrated my wife's birthday there and we couldn't be happier how the staff helped her enjoy it!

We enjoyed a great Derby weekend at Mammoth Cave Horse Camp. Kevin and his staff always make us feel at home and welcome. We met some great new friends from Tennessee and Alabama. The Derby party was awesome. The trails were a little muddy from all the rain and there was a couple of large trees down. We reported the down trees to Kevin and within a couple of days the Mammoth Cave Back Country Horsemen had cleared the trees. Great work!

Spending a weekend at Mammoth Cave Horse Camp leaves you with a lifetime of memories. Gather your friends, set up a ride, be sure to request the meal option if available and bring your dancing boots. Kevin has assembled a staff and volunteers that make you feel welcome, keep you well fed and wonderfully entertained. MCHC goes above and beyond. Brandon welded my trailer, JD & Mary made us all feel part of the group and Bubba and Kevin played their musical hearts out for us. My cheeks still hurt from laughing and smiling. You'll find yourself wanting to stay. I've stayed at many horse camps and MCHC tops the list. I travel nine hours to get there and the trip is worth every minute. This was my second visit this year but certainly not my last.

Awesome trails and camping facilities. From the minute we pulled in, we felt like family. Kevin was an excellent host. He went above and beyond to make us feel welcome, and made sure we had everything we needed. The stalls were very clean with fresh shavings when we arrived, and for a small fee they had them cleaned when we returned from riding. Very nice feature!! The campground is very clean, with water and electric at each campsite. This campground should be at the top of your list for riding destinations!!

You absolutely can not ask for better horse camp owners than Kevin and Janet Davis. They take phenomenal care of their customers. All campsites have electricity and water. The barns are clean with bedding upon arrival with shavings provided...for a small fee your stalls are cleaned, daily. The trails are safe with creeks, rocks, woods, small waterfalls, caves, etc... You can go on any length ride from the trailhead. The trails are marked and are NOT dangerous - mostly safe and relaxing, in my opinion. Book very early if you want to attend scheduled event rides - they fill up extremely early.

My wife and I have been to Mammoth Cave Horse Camp many times. The folks at Mammoth Cave Horse Camp are wonderful. The trails are well maintained by the Nationl Park Service and the MCHC staff. The area you ride through is beautiful. Up hill and down hill through deciduous forests full of oak, maple beech, hickory, sweet gum and tulip poplar - it is just beautiful. The campground is very clean and well kept with a camp store and large covered pavilion where they have dances on special events. The horse stalls are roomy, clean and safe. It is a truly wonderful place with wonderful people.

Love love love this campground easy to get in and out of easy to park trailers the barns are fantastic they supply your sawdust and go out of their way to accommodate you in every way! The staff is wonderful (Miss Linda) is the greatest just love her!!! The food is good and if you need something and they don't have it they will go out of their way to get it if possible!! We go there at 2-3 ones a year. Trails are all easy to ride and well marked and the last time we were there they were working on the trails to better the areas that the weather has taken a toll on. Just an all around great place to go and ride and have fun!!!

Couldn't feel more welcome, great horse barns, outdoor riding arena and good food and great entertainment. The trails are good but HATE the yellow jackets in the fall. The most beautiful pavilion makes for a homey, welcome atmosphere!

Me and wife and three kids went to Mammoth Cave Horse Camp because my friends had gone and spoke very highly of it. This was definitely worth the trip!! Kevin was extremely welcoming and everyone treated us like family. There was so much to do for the kids (including visiting mammoth cave itself) and the trails were amazing. Ending the nights with some music by the campfire was definitely my favorite part. On top of the friendly nature, the campground was clean and beautiful. I cannot wait to go back in the fall (I know they have event weekends and after speaking with some people who have been I definitely want to check it out!)

A lot of thought and planning from trails to having a wonderful place for the horses to stay with fresh water and a place to give the horses a bath to a clean bath house for humans too and wonderful entertainment every evening. The electric and water hook ups for the trailers were easy along with a big enough area to park your rig. Looking forward to going back.

First time at this camp and were very pleased with the entire experience. We came for their fall organized ride. The food was delicious, the staff very helpful and gracious, entertainment every night that varied from bands to wonderful group campfires, and the hall was a great gathering place to meet new friends. The campground was clean and sites were easy to enter/exit. The stalls were good size and water, shavings, etc. was easily accessed. Although I choose to keep my tack in our trailer, there are saddle racks to store your equipment in the barn. I did store feed and hay there. The shower rooms and restrooms were the cleanest I have found at any camp. My husband does not ride so he enjoyed having access to WiFi in the main hall. The trails out of camp offered a variety of riding, most are easy forest trails, but a couple offer more difficult and scenic terrain. There are miles of trails/combinations so you can ride as long as you like. A great deal of thought went into this camp and it is a great place to stay. The staff is outstanding.

Kevin and his staff are very considerate and helpful. Someone asked everyday if we needed anything. the activities in the evening were well planned and very nice.

If you are looking for a great camping/riding experience where you are well taken care of during your stay, then Mammoth Cave Horse Camp is the place to be. I had the pleasure of staying this past weekend with a bunch of wonderful ladies for our fall Cowgirl ride and Kevin as well as his friendly staff, went out of their way to be sure we had everything we needed. The food provided for our breakfasts and dinners were delicious. The restroom and shower facilities were clean. The barn area and stalls are clean, dry and roomy just like my stalls at home. The campsites are all wonderful with water and electric on each spot and are also not too close to your neighbor so you don’t feel crowded. The spots are easy to get into and can fit any sized rig. All of the trails are beautiful and diverse. There are trails for any level of experience for the horse or rider. I am also a big fan of the trails being marked well. The best part about my stay was that I felt completely welcomed and at home like I was an old friend and this was only my second time of camping here. It truly makes a difference when you know the person who’s running their business absolutely loves what they do.

Had a wonderful time this past weekend for our Fall Cowgirl Weekend. Kevin and staff made our weekend the best ever. From the sign in to sign out they were there for us. Had fantastic meals provided for us, firewood for our campfires in the cool evenings and even offered stall cleaning if wanted for a fee. I just love this camp. The stalls are very roomy and I feel it is safe for my horses. The sites are for the most part shady. There are some that aren't but most are. Trail head is pretty close. I think the park needs to do some work on the trails. When I was there is was pretty muddy and a lot of rocky area. All in all a really good time was had. Check this camp out. Well worth your time.

Kevin made a point of returning telephone calls in advance of our visit, posted instructions for late arrivals, delivered hay to our stalls and much, much more. It is clear that Kevin welcomes and enjoys having guests. Camp sites are clean, spacious and user friendly. The bath houses are second to none. As to trails, they are good trails with options for beginning riders to those with expertise. The scenery is beautiful.

Mammoth Cave Horse Camp is a really nice, first class facility and we plan to return. The stalls are large (10X10), airy, and well bedded. For a small extra charge they will even clean your stalls for you - you can't beat that! We stayed at the bunkhouse, which was clean, dry, and cozy (there was a nice little "faux fireplace" heater and also an air conditioning unit). The bunk house had sturdy double bed sized bunk beds - so you can sleep up to four. The camp sites were also very nice - well placed on the top of a hill. Shower facilities were very clean with plenty of hot water. Kevin and Brandon were super nice and very helpful and accomodating. There are more trails to explore here than any other place we have ridden and we were very pleased with them, but some of the trails are in need of drainage work in places, which is why I only rated the trails with four stars. The Wet Prong Trail is beautiful, but crosses a number of mountain spring/seep areas which are very wet and the horse traffic is really tearing up the terrain in those places. We did not venture onto the First Creek Trail, but we were told by other riders that this trail was even wetter. The state appears to be in the process of reinforcing those areas with gravel...hopefully this work continues. With gravel and drainage pipe placed in a few strategic areas, the trails will be much more enjoyable for both horses and riders. We also rode the Sal Hollow Trail, Blair Springs Trail and a few others which were dry and a very pleasant ride. All the trails are very well marked and the maps are accurate and easy to read. There are also numerous places to stop for a picnic lunch, with posts to cross tie your horse too.

this was our first ever organized ride everything was first class from the food, barns bathhouse. Kevin met everyone at the office by the end of first day he knew all 105 campers names. the guided trail rides were well organized for the style of ride you did. if you have never done an organized ride before this is well worth the money! We booked the spring ride 4/20/16-4/24/16 and the fall ride 10/9/16-10/16/16.

My husband and I attended the annual week long organized ride with friends. What an absolute treat! Kevin was extremely accommodating with arranging our party of four rigs to camp together. The facilities and campground are very clean. The owners, staff, and volunteers were very helpful and friendly. The food and entertainment was outstanding. I would highly recommend Mammoth Cave Campground. We plan on returning in the future. The owners are the perfect example of "southern hospitality."

Again, Kevin and his staff have outdone themselves with the great food and entertainment at Mammoth Cave Horse Camp. The campground, stalls and other facilities were in great shape with lots of space to store saddles, hay and other horse gear. There were nice wash stalls as well as easy access to the riding trails. Everything was so well organized but they go out of their way to accommodate special requests. I have made reservations for next year already.

Grass was cut. Clean. Trash receptacle handy. Dump station handy. Staff stopped by our camp asking if we needed anything. Clean bathrooms, pavilion, store. Helped us find a restaurant late Thurs. Friendly. I think it'd be helpful if maps explained how trail markers work. We couldn't figure out what the numbers meant. Were we going toward camp? Toward another landmark? How far were we from camp? From a specific landmark?

The campground is awesome. Intimate, clean and friendly. The trails are wonderful. You get a wide variety of riding. You can ride all day or part of the day and not be bored. Beautiful scenery! Kevin is Grrreat! Very accommodating. I usually stay away from event weekends because I do not like crowds, but the size of the campground combined with the trail system make this a moot point at this campground. And the people who come here are really thoughtful. The food provided was exceptional as well. Even though I don't eat beef or pork they made sure I didn't go hungry, there was plenty to eat and they even made chicken just for me! Very accommodating. This was my third trip to Mammoth, my first on an event weekend. Definitely need to go back!

We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed staying at a very clean and well maintained campground and the bath house was also clean and nice. We are avid riders and absolutely enjoyed the trails. They're not straight up or down but rugged and natural enough not to be boring. I think one of the most beautiful forests I've ever seen yet!!

In the summer, great air conditioning and the winter great electric fireplace heat. The pavilion has great music, many tables where we all can pot luck with other campers. Schedule rides and weekends when they do the meals, always wonderful. This is my friends and I favorite place to go. They are 10 minutes from Nolin Lake state park, and on hot days, I can float on a raft. MY friends who have the RV's sites are well shaded and plenty of room. We just love it there.

this place is the BEST!!! the people that run it are awesome and try all they can to make your stay a great one. The campsites are wonderful and private and shaded. We've got a pretty big rig and there are plenty of sites that are easy to get into. The stalls (I'm one of those that likes a safe place for my horse) are clean and SAFE for any horse - no worries that your horse will be hurt and the hay mangers are an extra bonus. I only wish that there were more cut-offs so that the only alternative wasn't a 5-houre ride or nothing. Trails are nice unless they're muddy - but that's the woods for ya! All in all - hard to find a better place than this one for a peaceful wonderful vacation - you'll have to look hard and long to find a better place - it's top notch!!!

The campground had all the bells and whistles. Very friendly and accommodating. Trails are marked well. Only thing about the trails is that you have to back track because they are so long. We did a trail on Saturday which was about 23 miles and since we wanted to see everything and not back track it took us about 8 hours of course we are on stock horses too and not gaited horses. Beautiful scenery!!! I would go back in a heart beat.

Absolutely tremendous campground and trails! Kevin, Linda and Brandon are excellent owner and staff. With so many horse camps shutting down or thinking to make ends meet,they can fill their facility by bumping the price up, its wonderful to see reasonable pricing and not gouging. Beautiful campsites, even offered campfire wood and to start our fires! We travel back and forth from Michigan and Louisiana yearly and will definitely make our stay a priority to revisit in our travels. We were able to camp about halfway between bathhouse and overlooking our horses. We have camped at many horse camps and this is the most safest, up-to-date, horse and camper friendly facility we`ve been at so far. Kudos to Mammoth Cave Horse Camp!! Only suggestion we could make was possibly installing 4 fixed benches on the outside of each side of horse stall building to accommodate leisure time near your horses, rest from your walks as well as conversation area with other riders.

The campground and common area is so nice that even during some bad weather you can go inside the common area with the big fireplace going to stay warm and hang out with friends. Once again Kevin Davis and his staff put on a great event with good food and a great Halloween party complete with costume contest and a band. The trails were in pretty good shape considering the rain we had. You need to put this place on your list of places to ride. The organized events are always great!

Campground was very clean, stalls were great, sawdust available, camp sites were spacious and clean with fire ring w/ grill top and very nice picnic tables for each sit. The campground is well set up and easy to get in and out of. I have a pretty big rig and had no problems. Hospitality was top notch. One of the best campgrounds I have been to with or with out my horse. On my list of places to go back to. The riding arena is plenty big with a very good surface to work your horse on. There is a 60' round pen also inside the riding arena. There are also obstacles to work your acquaint your horse with for those doing competitive trail riding. I would have given the trails a 5 star, however First Creek trail was pretty bad and the edge of the trail gave way, one of the horses went down (not mine). This Trail starts out pretty easy but turns into very difficult and hard to maneuver. I would consider this trail expert level for that reason. The rest of the trails were awesome and enjoyable to ride with places to even hitch up your horses and sit a spell for lunch. There even a trash bin for you to throw away your trash. So there is absolutely no reason to see trash on trail. Have to say it was one of the best places I have stayed at and will be back! My hats off to the staff. Your awesome!

We went on vacation with our mules at Mammoth Cave Horse Camp and had a wonderful week. The leaves were turning, so every trail was beautiful. All trails were well maintained and well marked. Good maps are available at the camp, which came in handy even though we always ride out with a GPS. They offer a service to trailer out to various trail heads, so we got to ride on most every trail in the park. The stalls were roomy and clean, with saddle storage area, hydrants, and wash racks. There is a large sand arena available. The highlight of camping here, though, was the attention to customer service by the owner and all of the staff. We have been to many states and a lot of different camp grounds, but this was the best we have ever experienced, no doubt. The camp sites are clean, spacious and level, and are easy to get into. The bathhouse is terrific, with a great hot shower. Very clean! There is a camp store with some basics, and also a fabulous dining hall which has large sliding doors all around to adjust for the weather and temperature. The nights were cool in October, so there was always a roaring fire in the big stone fireplace. We did an event ride, so there was a meal package of 3 meals a day that was better than my cooking, which didn't hurt my feelings at all - so glad husband was happy and well fed! The cost was a good value. Entertainment every night of some sort, camp fires, plus the nicest folks were there. We already reserved for next year and look forward to making this one of our regular riding destinations.

I recently returned from the Second Fall Ride at Mammoth Cave Horse Camp. I also attended the first fall ride and had a great time also although the park was closed down by the government. This year we had full access to the Park and a beautiful ride on private land. We rode to the largest sand cave in the region and it was beautiful. This was on private land which Kevin had arranged for us to ride. There were several days that trailers were provided for those that did not want a very long day. They trailered us to various trail heads and we rode back. This allows us to ride areas of the Park which were prohibitive because of the distance. The trails in the park are mostly wooded trails with lots of water crossing. There is one trail with some "technical" spots, but doable with a good horse and well worth the effort. The food was wonderful. The facilities are very nice. The stalls were spacious. The stalls appear to be very well drained when it rained. No horse standing in water in the stall. The barns have a place in the middle to keep your hay, feed and tack (contains some permanent saddle racks). If you prefer, you can pay a small fee and have your stall cleaned every day. The sites were also spacious and fairly level. There are some trees in the campground to provide shade. For a small fee, they will empty your black and gray tanks twice during the week. The bathhouse facilities were nice and clean all through the week. Kevin does a wonderful job in making you feel welcome and addresses not only concerns but requests. He went way out of his way to accomodate special requests. Although the week was well planned, room was made for revisions of the schedule depending on weather and riders' requests. Kevin also has a friendly accomodating and competent staff. The nightly entertainment was excellent and varied. From a blue grass band to a pickin session around the campfire. Kevin, along with other campers brought their musical instruments and played for the rest of us around the common campfire. Kevin runs a quiet, clean and friendly campground. I have also camped here on non-organized rides. Everytime I have been there, Kevin and his staff are the same as during the organized rides. This has become my favorite organized ride. I made my reservation for next year (as did many others).

Just attended the fall ride for our first time visit at Mammoth Cave. It won't be our last! Kevin and Janet have mastered the art of hosting horse people. The campground is clean, and well maintained. While I don't typically like to have my horse away from my camp, the stalls are extremely well built and safe. I felt more than comfortable with the accommodations for our horses. The food was outstanding! My husband is a very picky eater, and usually complains about the food when we camp, unless I cook. We were both surprised and pleased that even he enjoyed every meal. The entertainment provided was above average as well, and perfectly suited to this events crowd. Overall, I must agree that this is a 5 star campground, and we look forward to our next journey there.

Staff and owners are the most accommodating of any place I have ever stayed. They will do what ever it takes to make your stay there GREAT. The stalls are roomy and very safe for your horse. Nice wash bays and easy access to water at the barn and campsites. I attended the fall organized ride and can say the food was out of this world. Easy access to the park and trails but staff will be glad to trailer you to a different trail head in the park if you want to ride somewhere else.

Excellent campground and very friendly and helpful camp workers. Very clean and well maintained campground & stalls. The trails we rode were very mixed, good/easy then patches of significant mud or rocks. I also do not understand why Ferry road (gravel) is closed to horses. We did not utilize the trailers that are provided to transport horses to other trailheads. The trailers are a "nice touch". Very nice place with a lot of trails some of which are in need of work but are still acceptable

A first class campground! We were warmly greeted when we arrived and were very pleasantly surprised at the horses stalls. Very clean and spacious. We were invited to use the arena for turn-out for our horses, and they had a marvelous time bucking and running. It was the first turn-out they'd had in two weeks. The trails were just so much fun! Some rocks, some challenging, and some you could really move out on. The views were wonderful and the entire experience was incredibly relaxing. We took one day to visit the caves and used the ferry to get from one side of the park to the other. That was fun! This is one of those "gotta go back" places. Thanks Kevin and crew for a most outstanding week!

Howdy Trail Riders; Those of you that know me, know I have sat on a horse a time or two and driven a team to a wagon a time or two and I have camped and trailered all over this country and even Canada. I want to share my version of a review. First, I don't write reviews very often if at all. But I felt moved to do so. Ruth and I attended two AQHA rides this month, one in Indiana and one in Kentucky. Sarah Hays needs to be put on a pedestal and paraded around as our Crown Jewel. And Mammoth Cave Horse Camp went above and beyond to make everyone feel welcome. I have to be right up front. I have spent the better part of the past 20+ years making Norman Indiana my normal destination ride. We love the facility, the trails and the drive is only about 2 hours from our home. When I was younger, we visited Norman Indiana 2 or 3 times a year. Now with a few years and miles behind me, we visit once a year, twice if there is an event we want to attend. But I have to say, my days of going off camping and riding will be spent at Mammoth Cave Horse Camp. I hadn't been there but once or twice and it had been about 5 years since I was at Mammoth Cave Horse Camp. I walked through the door and I was met with a "Hello Brett! A smile and a hand shake. The owner Kevin got up out of his chair to greet me. I see why Sarah Hays chose this site for the KY-AQHA ride. You were greeted with a smile, made to feel welcome from the first second you step out of your truck. Next, the trails have been improved ten fold since our last visit. Our last visit, there were downed trees across the trails and areas washed out, mud and Skid Loaders and other equipment parked through out the forest making improvements or a mess. It was a mess at that time. But I couldn't ask for better trails, Wet Prong was clear, maybe a little rocky in places, but it kept it interesting and on your toes. When we rode Collie Ridge we met rider after rider, they all had smiles on their faces and were having a great ride. The forest was beautiful, the weather was also. The other guests and riders at the camp were all friendly. Saturday we had a longer ride than we had planned, but we made it back safe and sound. The shower house, FANTASTIC! New stainless steel shower fixtures and private individual shower and changing rooms. They were clean and the water was warm. Not once did I ever have to wait on a shower or the bath room and the camp ground was PACKED! Folks were double and triple parked on sites. I was told it was the largest AQHA ride in the world for 2014! I can't say enough about Mammoth Cave Horse Camp and their hospitality. While cleaning my stalls, a beautiful young lady and it appeared to be her daughter and grandson were driving around in a golf cart. Stopped and spoke, we had a nice chat and I found out later it was the owners wife and she was out greeting everyone and seeing if everyone was having a good time. The customer service and social aspect of our stay was that of a 5 star resort. I don't know if it's like that every time you come, but I am going to find out! Enough about how great Mammoth Cave Horse Camp is. Sarah Hays! Met her a few years ago briefly and than again at the Indiana AQHA ride this past month. She knows how to put together an agenda! Everything was first class. If I start about the food it will take two pages! The easiest way to say anything about the food, I needed nap after every meal! Man! the food was outstanding! The auction was good, I hope they raised a lot of money, because I want next years ride to be at Mammoth Cave Horse Camp. I'm not saying the Indiana AQHA ride was bad, it was not. It was two totally different environments. One venue was run like a business and the other was run like an outstanding resort with excellent customer service and hospitality second to none. And there was no institutional food served at Mammoth Cave Horse Camp, NO SIR! It was food you would be proud to serve guests at your home. I'm sure there are a lot of places across this land that could benefit from by visiting Mammoth Cave. I apologize if this sounded like commercial, it isn't. Sarah Hays did the most outstanding job and all of her little cronies too. Sarah couldn't have done all of that without you. I only know a couple of them Marie and Kimberly, and Julie Beam you all deserve "AT-A-BOYS!" and a huge thank you. I have it on a good authority that Sarah is an excellent wedding planner too! All hale Lady Sarah. Thank you all for a memorable weekend, I don't get away very often and I thank you for making this past weekend great!

The trails are varied from easy to quite challenging for any level of rider to be able to enjoy. Lots of beautiful country to ride through in the park.

You can tell he has ridden and camped him self by how well the campground and facilities were planned, we loved the wash racks for the horses. On a 1 to 10 I would give it an 11. We stayed in the smaller bunk house, it was clean and the ac worked great, the beds were comfortable and the bathrooms close by. The trails we took were really pretty, Sundays trail was muddy but from what I've been told Kevin has nothing to do with how the trails are maintained. Will definetly go back!

We really lucked out with fall like temperatures, but the shaded trails keep you out of the sun. Our group really enjoyed the rides. You need to pack a lunch and be ready to stay in the saddle for the day in order to see new views. But, even my horse enjoyed the terrain as it can vary from one trail to another. Some areas of trails Not for beginners. The staff was absolutely the most welcoming, trying to please people wanting you to enjoy your vacation. Showers and restrooms very clean, and my horse was very happy in his large stall. Kudos!! Will definitely go back.

Let me start by saying that this was our first horse camping experience, and I did not know what to expect. I found the one trail we took (Wet Prong) WAY beyond my skill level, and our friend who met us there described the other trails as that challenging and then some (she loved them!). Had I known upfront how rough the trails were, I might not have stayed at that camp… But I would have missed a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. We stayed in the new single bunkhouse, which was fabulous. The bed was comfortable, the space was quiet, and it was air-conditioned. The horses were nearby, and they had five-star accommodations as well. Linda was in charge for our stay, and she was amazing. When I told her of my difficulties on the trail, she recommended a different trailhead inside the Park, with access 10 minutes away. The recommendation was perfect – we rode from the other trailhead the next two days, and had an excellent time. When we go back to Mammoth Cave, we will stay at MCHC, and haul the short distance to the easier trailheads. (We have a small trailer with two easy-loading horses, so it was no trouble at all.) Overall, the campground amenities and Linda's care of us added up to an amazing first experience.

This was our first camping trip with the horses and we jumped in with both feet. A week long and 3 states away! Kevin Davis was there for us and answered every question I had in the months before the ride. The facility's were great, nice stalls and camping sites. The bath house and restrooms were clean at all times and the food and entertainment were amazing! Everyone there was very nice and helpful. We had great rides, some mud to get through but our FL horses did good! We are already signed up for next year! We are now spoiled for any other camp as this was such a great experience. We have invited friends for next year.

We attended Mammoth Cave horse camp Halloween party weekend. We had a great time. Kevin and Janet are always great host. They go out of their way to make sure you have a great time and wonderful camping experience. The food and entertainment was outstanding. We always enjoy our time at Mammoth Cave Horse Camp. Trails were a little muddy in spots due to recent rain but was not a big issue.

Just returned from the week long trail ride at the camp. We had a awesome time. The facilities are modern, clean, safe, and user friendly. Even though the park was "closed", Kevin had arranged rides on private land that offered caves and views not to be found in the park. We did ride the park trails, they were hilly but not mountainous, they were very rugged in spots, but even with my limited experience on these types of trails we had safe and fun rides. I would love to go back!!!!

What an amazing experience at the week long organized ride! The food was beyond all expectations as was the entertainment . Kevin Davis did everything possible to make sure we all had a fantastic time regardless of the government shutdown and resulting national park closure. Even though some people cancelled their reservations because of that situation, Kevin still continued with the full program. Made my reservation for next year ! The campground was beautiful and well maintained with great barns. The trails were a little muddy in spots due to a huge rain the first night. Overall, the riding was great and I can't say enough about MCHC.

Kevin and his staff made every attempt to accomodate every guest staying with a smile and a can do attitude! Park was closed due to gov't shutdown and arrangements were made to do riding on beautiful private land nearby. Great place, trails are fun and challenging. Highly recommend to all avid horsecampers!

We visited during an organized ride. Every experience was top-notch! The food was great, the campgrounds were wonderful, and the stalls were excellent as well. We were there during the government shutdown but were still able to ride the Mammoth Cave trails but on a limited basis. Trails were great, well marked and easy to follow. We did not get to ride all of them but what we were on, was not what we would consider challenging. We look forwared to getting back and riding more advanced trails. McCoy Hallow I think may be better suited for the type of riding we like. We will go back!

Mammoth Cave was the greatest trail camp I have ever been to. The staff and Kevin greated us on raining late afternoon with a fire in the fireplace, and eager to accomadate any of out needs. The trails close,even though the government closed the park, Kevin made sure there was trails on private land for us to ride.. lunch on the trail a couple of days. The camp and stalls were very well maintained. Meal were wonderful and so was the entertainment,enjoyed dancing to the music, and the camp fire night of singing. Would love to go back.

Kevin made me feel very welcome, a big shout out to our "chef" Janice...her (and my special friend, Denny Mize) the campground was beautiful and loved the spot that Kevin let me choose! I loved the nightly entertainment, featuring Clay Underwood and the New Town Band, bluegrass group...loved having the silent auction. I did find the trails, rocky and for me, a little difficult...but Denny saved the week for me by generously offering his mule, Francis and she took very good care of me at the 1st Creek trail head. It was muddy, I believe that Louisville had the nation's highest rain fall on 10-6-13 (the day I arrived) and what with the park shutdown...we were all able to ride guided on private land or take out our aggravation with the Washington folks and trespass!

First, let me say that I am not the rider in the family (my husband Lary is). We have traveled to a good number of horse camps and this is BY FAR the best we have been to. We found this camp through Best of America by Horseback. Kevin is a great PEOPLE person and makes everyone feel at home. His staff is also very anxious to please and make your stay memorable. The food for the Labor Day Weekend was wonderful and everything is spotless. The camp site itself is large with picnic table and fire ring along with up to 50amp elec. and water at every site. There is also a dump station in a good location away from camp. My husband (the rider) says that the trails are REALLY rocky, but this is not under Kevin's control since the trails belong to the Park Service. We hope to go back to MCHC again soon to stay longer.

Great campground. This is a really nice place. Wonderful stalls, nice sites. Terrific restrooms/showers. Some folks complain about the barn being a bit far from the sites, but heck, most of us need a little exercise. I don't see it as a problem at all. Trails are well-marked, but McCoy Hollow has a couple of very difficult spots on it. You do get weary of riding Wet Prong each time to get to other trails, but at least it's an interesting trail. The only camp problem we saw was the gaited riders coming into and out of camp at warp speed.

I saw this campground highlighted on RFD-TV. Two weeks later we trailered down to check it out in the beginning of December. Kevin was very accommodating and you could tell he loved his business. The campground is beautiful with 100 safe built stalls. Campsites were easy access and level. We had the whole campground to ourselves which was great. This is a good time to camp in Kentucky as the temps were 60's and 70's. The only thing we did not care for at the campground is the main country road was close behind the sites. If the campground was busy it would not be as noticeable. The trails were very well maintained. The trails we were on were not challenging. Some were rocky but not for long stretches. Our horses are senior experienced horses and they handled the trials just fine. Our dogs were welcome to go on the trails which is something we always look for in a trip. We would totally recommend Kevin's place. The bathrooms and showers are top knotch. The campground looks like there is a lot of fun in the summer months. We would definitely visit this campground again! And thanks Kevin for advice on the scenic trails. Had a great visit!

Great ride Halloween weekend. Thanks to all the staff, cooks, band and all others who added to the fun. Always enjoy a weekend at the Mammoth Cave Horse Camp. Met some special new friends and rode in perfect fall weather, beautiful cave country/scenery and gorgeous fall color! Great folks gather at Mammoth Cave Horse Camp. Always special to meet new people and see new faces that join the ranks with the 'Ole (NOT OLD) friends that gather there as well. We took a new rider with us for MCHC's Halloween weekend, the longest she had EVER ridden was almost 2 hours, and had only rode a few times. Put her on our "babysitter"; She had the time of her life, we rode for about 4-4.5 hours, she LOVED the trails, scenery, wildlife (saw a 6 point buck), fall colors and has asked when WE are going back. SO, needless to say, because of her "great experience" at Mammoth Cave Horse Camp she will continue to grow as a equine (future) owner, better rider, nature lover and confident woman! HIGHLY RECOMMEND Mammoth Cave Horse Camp to EVERYONE!!!

Stayed a week there, during the Sheltowee Ride, with the Appaloosa Club, and it was the most awesome horse camping vacation ever! Stalls are great, but the barn is somewhat inconvenient to the sites; however, when we had a rainy day, and didn't ride, we took in the local sites, so it was comforting to know our horses were safe and sound! I would highly recommend Mammoth Cave Horse Camp!!

This was a very lovely place to ride. They have it all, great trails that are easy, or challenging. I was told this place was hard to ride, but found that not to be true. I'm sure you can find whatever you are looking for here. The accommodations are great, clean, and the staff are very welcoming. This place is easy to get big rigs in and out of too. I stayed in the bunkhouse and really liked it. You can hear the horses all night but I like that. It was a long walk to the showers, but you do have bathroom across the drive at the office available 24/7. The stalls are clean, and large. You might want to take a clip for the chain on the stall doors, just to make sure your Houdini doesn't escape. They also have wash racks for your horse if necessary. They have an obstacle course, round pen, and sand outdoor arena. I will be back to ride here again and I will bring some friends.

The bath house is clean with large shower stalls. Plenty of hot water is always available. Camping spaces are very easy to park in, with lots of trees for shade. Electric & water are available, with a picnic table & fire pit @ each one. Fire wood is available to purchase for a very reasonable price. Horses may be tethered @ the site or in very roomy stalls @ the barns. The one downfall is the location of the barns from the camping spaces. However; space is available to store tack @ the barns. This is very convenient for those of us who choose to stall our horses. Sawdust is provided when it comes time to clean your stall. The staff always have a smile on their faces & do whatever is needed to make your stay a good one. Kevin, the owner is especially good @ remembering faces & names. You feel like a long time friend. When people ask me about my favorite places to camp, MCHC is the first one I mention. Don't miss out on going there. You won't be disappointed.

Their operation is well run - the campground and facilities immaculate. Horse stable was very clean and well maintained - horses were very safe. Super place to stay, beautiful trails and scenery, really nice people - a campground not to miss!

I've camped at MCHC twice this year, and both trips have been excellent. The campground is easy to access, the stalls clean, with tack racks provided at the barn. Many of the trails are long, but beautiful, and offer a variety of terrain from easy to challenging. And the staff is great, attesting to another posters comment that Kevin, the camp owner, will remember your name... that's a sure bet! We brought a big group with us on Labor Day and Kevin made accommodations to provide a birthday cake for one member of our group. The 3 day events are wonderful. The music was great, the atmosphere relaxed and the facilty top notch. And as Arnold says...."I'll be back!"

We LOVE Mammoth Cave Horse Camp. The facilities are by far my favorite in Kentucky and the trails are great. The stalls are nice sized, the bathrooms are clean with plenty of facilities. The camp sites are large and the fire grates are fantastic. The only thing I don't love is the distance from the campsites to the barn - but honestly it is managable and hasn't created any problems.

I have stayed at Mammoth Cave Horse Camp several times beginning shortly after they opened. I have always enjoyed my stay there. The campground keeps getting better. It is very well maintained. The stalls are roomy and clean upon arrival with access to water at the barn. The bathhouse has always been clean. The entrance to the camp is very easy to get into no matter how large your rig and is right off a paved road. One of the best things about this camp is its trail access. The trailhead is just out the back of the camp. The trails are varied in length and difficulty. I always enjoy seeing Kevin there. Kevin and his staff are friendly and helpful. Don't be surprised if Kevin remembers your name not only during your visit but also on your second visit. He makes an effort to get to know the campers and is also very helpful with trail advise.

This is by far the nicest campground that I have ever been to. The staff is super friendly and so willing to help you. On the organized rides, the food is terrific and the bands are great. Any other weekend you'll be entertained by some great campfire pickin. Kevin plays a bango and usually has several great musicians join him. Everyone is always made to feel welcome to join right in. The sites are great and the stalls are very nice and safe. Mammoth cave offers alot of variety for everyone in the way of trails. Like long rides - then you will love it. There is one short loop that is beautiful. The terrain has something for everyone. There's interesting things to do other than ride in the area too and the staff will help you find them.

This was the 4th year that Kevin and MCHC have hosted our Women On The Edge ride and as always we were not disappointed!!! MCHC is one of the nicest campgrounds we have ever stayed at and the trails are equaly breathtaking. Just the natural beauty of Mammoth Cave National Forest alone is a trail riders dream come true but combined with the "y'all c'mon in!" atmosphere of the campground it's definatly a 5 star experience! I have camped there since the first year they opened and every time we come they're making improvments, this year was another new barn and 4 brand new bunk houses! After we pulled out this year one of our members horse had an accident and hung himself up in the front of her trailer...we couldn't get him down! We called Kevin and he and some of the guys at the campground were there in moments and rescued the horse and us!!! now that's service!!!...heck that's what neighbors do!!! If you've never been you'll love it!

I love the campground other than the fact that you have to stable your horse unless no stalls are available and they still charge you to picket. I think you should have the option to picket and then maybe a minimal fee. I also don't like that the barns are too far from the sites-makes it too easy for someone to steal your horse. The Davis' are great and really make you feel welcome! Love the single shower rooms too!!

The campground is nice overall, but the staff continued to move our horses from stall to stall. They were never in the same place when we went down to te barn. They were staining stalls and got stain all over our water buckets. Overall the staff was very strange. There are no good places to eat unless you travel to Bowling Green KY or to Cave City KY. People in the area overall are not friendly. If traveling in the immediate area, you use ferrys to cross the water. The riding is extremely rough and there is little to see, but woods. We normally go to Big South Fork and camp, so we are used to the riding varying in difficulty and being rough in some spots. There is no comparison. This riding is extremely rough and dangerous in some spots. I would not recommend visiting the area with horses. It is well worth going to visit the Mammoth Cave and taking the tour. That was the only worthwhile part of the trip. We cut our trip short due to bad experience.

The campground was clean & nice - owner was very accomodating. BUT...we were not impressed with the trails at all. While there were some very nice trail areas, you had to ride through some very rough spots to get there. Trails were well marked, but I would not recommend them to beginners. I am an advanced beginner and my horse is a seasoned trail horse. My friends and their horses are experienced trail riders. We hit some very rough and potentially dangerous spots on the trails that were in desperate need of maintenance. Fallen trees, rocks, and very deep muddy/rocky spots really took away from the enjoyment of the ride and made us all nervous for the safety of our horses. Although it may be contributed to a rough winter, there were no warnings of potential difficulties on the trails. Even though this park is close to us, we won't be coming back...no comparison to Land Between the Lakes.

If I could give the camp more than 5 stars, I would! Great place, great owner(Kevin), great horse accomodations. Roomy, level sites. Large & clean restrooms and showers. Safe, 10 x 12 stalls in an excellent barn. If I had to change one thing about the place, I'd move the barn closer to the sites, but I can see why the barn is located where it is. Trails are well-marked; if you get lost here, it's because you TRIED to get lost. There are no excuses. Few bees on the trails, common for this time of year everywhere. Quite a bit of rocky sections on the trails. One short section of McCoy Hollow is VERY challenging. The only reason I gave the trails four stars is because you must ride the same two trails out from camp, and there are no short loops. But the trails are maintained and fun. Don't miss this place, and if you go, ride to the little restaurant down the road for lunch..great home cooking! (You don't have to ride the road to get there; you go via trails).

We loved the mule days weekend. Very nice campground and horse stalls. Clean restrooms and showers. The trails are some of the best we have ever ridden. Highly recommend this campground.

We stayed at this campground for 5 nights in July and I have to say it is one of the nicest campgrounds that we have ever visited. The horse barn has very large stalls and is kept very clean. The restrooms and showers are hands down the nicest and CLEANEST of any campground we have stayed at. The trails are very well marked and very scenic. We have traveled and stayed at horsecamps all over the eastern US for the last 15 years and there is no other place that I would rather return to. Put this one down as a place that you must visit!

We traveled for six weeks covering sixteen states staying in horsecamp and riding trails in national and state forests. This was the BIGGEST disappointment of the entire trip. They didn't begin to live up to their advertising. The place looks like a bombed out forest...dead trees everywhere including two tall ones on our campsite. The sites are level but VERY close to one another. The restrooms were never cleaned during our five day stay. The horses were stalled a quarter mile away...no secure place for tack so it had to be hauled back and forth to the barn...no overnight security...we kept locks on our horse stalls. The trails were okay...but not good...maps were of little use. This was not a place to which we would ever return and do not recommend it.

When we got to Mammoth Cave everything was locked up when we got their, but they had our campsite number and stall number posted on the door...good deal. Made camp and wanted to go riding but realized we had NO idea on where the trail head was and went back to the office and they didn't have any trail-maps posted anywhere, OK went back piddled around ate supper and waited, directly somebody showed up and gave us a trail-map and opened the restrooms up..THANK GOD....... we finally got to saddle up and ride after a 5 hr wait. The campground is new and clean and somewhat shaded depending where they stick ya, we were stuck as far from the horses that you could get around 1/4 mi. so be prepared for that. After riding and the next day we discovered that we had an equine EMERGENCY.. a horses legs swelled up. I had already paid for the full stay but I had to pull up and leave early to try to get back and see a vet, and after waiting a few hours for someone to finally show up I was informed that they don't give $$$$$ back they just CREDIT your account for when ya come back. The trails what little we got ride were not that impressive to me, surely not worth the 4 hour pull to get there. I finally settled on a bunch of t-shirts and hats to try to zero out my account balance because I don't plan on returning. The campgrounds are really nice but just be prepared to be seperated from your horses for awhile, they offer a place for you to put you tack for the next day but anybody that wanted to drive up during the nite could remove you of your tack or horses because NOBODY was there after dark. ----- many a good ride been missed waiting on the rain

Very nice campground and the people there are great. We rode the Memorial Day weekend and the food was very good. The stalls are very nice. The good thing about the trails was most of them are in the woods so it keeps the heat to a mimimum. The campground is nice and the bathrooms and showers are clean and very nice. We had a great time and will go back.

I just wanted to comment on the review from "Sassy". Sassy did not stay at our campground this past weekend and when she showed up Sunday night to attend our live entertainment event she was told that we are not open to the public that our events are for our campers only. She got mad and placed her post on this site as a result. Hopefully everyone can see from the rest of the reviews of our campground that we run a clean and friendly campground. I feel that if I open our events to the public it could diminish the enjoyment of our campers which is my first priority. I hope everyone can understand and appreciate the need for this policy.

The Mammoth Cave Horse Camp is a beautiful and well-run facility! The office and pavilion area looked clean and well cared-for. Riding clubs/groups could probably make good use of the pavilion area - the building also had two restrooms so you wouldn't have to walk all the way back to your trailer or the main bathroom/shower house. The barn is maintained well, with good lighting and easy access to water and the wheelbarrows. All stalls had a hay rack and two hooks for feed/water buckets, with sturdy gates and hooks outside for your horse's halter. The manure pit is also easy to get to, and emptied frequently. Depending on where your campsite is located, you may need to drive over to the barn to feed/check on your horses or tack up (especially if you choose to keep your tack at your trailer). There are saddle racks provided at the barn, and many people also stored their hay in the center and end overhanging areas. Most of the people (myself included) kept their saddles at the campsites overnight. Campsites were well-graveled, with water and electric, a picnic table and fire ring. The section closest to the pavilion/office was sort of situated on a hill, which could be a problem if there is a lot of rain and your site happens to be located near the bottom of the hill. The large loop, which is a little closer to the bathrooms/showers, seemed to have nicer sites with better shade and seemed a bit more private. A few of those sites were pull-through. The showers were clean and well-kept, with plenty of warm water and the bathrooms were also in good shape. As for the trails, they were well-maintained and marked, easy to access and easy to follow. Some were more typical narrow dirt trails, others (like Collie Ridge) were wide with gravel footing. There were plenty of places along the way to stop and tie-up the horses for a break. Plenty of creek crossings to water the horses, but we were there during a rainy week so I'm not sure how quickly those creeks would dry up. It was a nice place to ride, and very pretty, but no really breathtaking views or scenery. Still, I would definitely consider another visit to this horse camp!

Just returned from a trip to Mammoth Cave Horse Camp. We traveled to the camp from Eastern MD. It was worth the incredibly long truck ride! We couldn't have felt more welcomed and the amenities are outstanding. The riding was fabulous with extremely well marked and groomed trails. It was rocky and muddy in some spots, and there were some trees down due to the flooding and bad weather this area has seen. But there are ways to get through the rough spots. It just depends on what the rider is used. Hats off to Kevin (owner) and Linda who is a wonderful ambassador for this facility!

Trails narrow and rocky. We have reservations for a group for several weeks in advance, upon arrival we were told there was a mix up and we would have to seperate and take what was left many sites were open however they were not available to us even though we were there first. No apology was made - very bad business!!!

This was our first visit to Mammoth Cave Horse Camp for the KQHA ride. We were greated by Kevin Davis, who was very friendly and accomodating. After checking in, we were directed to our stalls that were already bedded. We were provided campground maps and trail maps. The campsite was a gravel pad with electric, water, table and fire ring/grill. Our stay was very pleasant, facilities were very good, clean and neat. Trails are a short ride across the road to the trail head. Rode over 60 miles in 3 days on 3 different trails in Mammoth Cave National Park and could have ridden more if time permitted.

I visited this Horse camp this past weekend. I have been riding Mammoth Cave all of my life and live only a short distance away. I have been traveling to TN. IL. Ga. and other states over the years to find decent horse camps and riding. The Camp was one of the very best that I have seen anywhere. Everything was GREAT. The trails were very beautiful as always. This Horse camp is a winner. It is a must see and visit. The owners are very nice and accomodating.
