You choose your site but be careful as interior roads on the B loop are very tight and some sites are difficult to get into. We found a nice pull-through site in Loop A but had to use the blocks to level out the rig. We chose not to use their showers because they were old and disgusting. We left after 4 days (had a 7 day stay planned) as the rain was horrible and the ground was already saturated. We would not stay here again. It is tough to get to and the hiking trails were in disrepair (I'm a trail maintenance guy from western NC), rocky, wet, and dangerous. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the one campground I really wanted to get to this year in my travels. I had heard about this canyon and wanted to see it for myself. I read that the overnight fee was low: I do not believe camping should be expensive seeing you bring everything to do it with you. So off I went to find the place. What a drive! The canyon and rock formations therein are pretty. The campground was awful. It was horribly crowded for a weekday. The bathroom was dirty. It was loud till about 2 in the morning. The people I checked in with, had bad attitudes. I almost jumped up and down and yelled: "Get happy people! This is a vacation spot!" However I figured it would be lost on them. I won't return, but I got some nice pictures of the canyon. We camped here in a Truck Camper.

This CG is owned jointly by VA and KY and both states should be ashamed. The park doesn't take reservations although many were "rented" when we arrived and were not available even though no one was occupying them. On Memorial Day the staff seemed to cram as many campers into sites as possible. The single site across from us had three campers on it and this was true of many of the sites. There was a class A parked outside the restroom with an extension cord running into the bathroom the entire weekend. There were no locks on the doors in the womens toilet stalls. We were told that there was no full hook-up site available when we called but, when we arrived, the ranger had one that she was "holding back" but we could have it. The laundry room was locked and we had to drive to the visitor center to have someone open it even though it was two hours past opening hours. The staff were hard to find but friendly when you did find someone. The hiking within the park was excellent with well-marked trails. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
