Enjoy the beauty of nature in one of the 31 tent and RV campgrounds in Kentucky State Parks. Whatever your interests, our campgrounds have the facilities to meet your needs and offer some of the best camping in Kentucky. From primitive camping to full service RV camping; the Kentucky State Parks welcome you, your family, and friends to experience the natural beauty that Kentucky has to offer.

In addition to traditional tent and RV campgrounds in Kentucky, our state parks also offer five equestrian campgrounds for horse enthusiasts. Also, for our guests who would like to experience camping for the first time, we offer camper cabins at Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park and fully equipped camping units at Columbus-Belmont State Park for some of the best camping in Kentucky. Those who want to stay indoors should take a look at other options such as Kentucky cabin rentals or state park lodges.
