We came in on a Sunday afternoon. No attendant at station, but a note to check in with host. We stopped by host campsite, but no luck. Our campsite was easy to find and to back in to. Plenty of space for the camper and vehicle to park at in our campsite. Host showed up short while later with our check-in paperwork and was expecting us. She was a very friendly and helpful host to us.

Sites were decently apart from one another and plenty of space in each area. The restrooms were older, but clean and well maintained. Sites were level with concrete or gravel and the water/electrical were within easy reach. There is 1 dump station.

Campground was quiet and plenty of woods around us. Plenty of trails around the campground to explore and wildlife was active here. Overall, I will stay here again. My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. We camped at Grove Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

It is easy to reach with google maps, close to lake and marina, various trails to hike, and within easy distance to town if needed. Great country setting for a nice weekend away.

This is a beautiful campground. I note that some people complained "there is nothing to do." Well, if you're like us, then that's what you're looking for! National Forest campgrounds are NOT highly developed campgrounds w/lots of activities. Sites are large and wooded. However, there were a couple of issues: Several people let their dogs go unrestrained and the campground hosts even stopped to chat with the campers and never did or said anything about it. We have 2 dogs - we love dogs, but we keep ours safe & restrained. Second, there were two groups of multi-site campers above & below us, and they got pretty loud. I think that's just something to keep in mind for this campground, where lots of locals come for boating. But again, the hosts seemed oblivious to the noise. Would like to give everything 5 stars, but couldn't do that, mainly because of the dog problem. Finally, we would prefer a site that is not multi-tiered and if we were to return would make sure we pay attention to that feature. Watch out for ticks! We camped at Grove Campground in a Motorhome.

Wonderful USFS campground. Nice, roomy sites with 30 amp power. Lantern poles near tables and tent pads. Camped here while visiting Cumberland Gap area, though discovered other campgrounds closer. Hosts were positive and helpful. We camped at Grove Campground in a Motorhome.

Beautiful paved sites with large patios, surrounded by gorgeous forest. Good water and power. Our site (B2) was level and easy to get into with our small RV. Most of park is for tents, with only a limited number for RVs. Toilets were located conveniently but didn't seem to be serviced regularly. Some were dirty and out of toilet paper. There is only one shower building for the entire park and the showers were dirty and some needed repair -- missing benches, spider webs, dead bugs. Camp host was pleasant and helpful. The roads are rather narrow and twisty, so I would hesitate to try to get in with a big rig. Cost reflects senior discount. We camped at Grove Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground has the nicest, largest and most private campsites of any campgrounds we have ever visited. We stayed in B08 and absolutely loved the site. The campground was very clean and well maintained. The campground hosts were very friendly and helpful. The only reasons why I can't give this campground a "10" are because there are no sewer hook-ups and there is no pool or playground area. If it had these amenities, it would be an easy 10. Also, although there is probably nothing that the campground itself can help, be warned that ticks and gnats were pretty bad the days we were there. Regardless of the these few things, we would definitely stay at this campground again when visiting this area. We camped at Grove Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very nicely maintained, friendly hosts, level campsites. We had site B2, a reservable site, it was perfect for our 45' MH and toad. 25W is narrow with no shoulder. Turn into CG was tight with toad but we made it okay. B loop had no shower facility, just toilets. No Satellite reception on B2. AT&T service decent. Only received 3 TV channels with antenna. We camped at Grove Campground in a Motorhome.

This is probably one of the best campgrounds we have been to. We stayed in B-7 which was fantastic. We absolutely love the two tiered sites where the fire is away from the camper. Even though its only 35 feet or so. The picnic tables are heavy duty wood and extremely nice. The lake access is maybe a three minute drive where Grove marina is. We rented a pontoon boat for the day and they were extremely friendly. Not sure what the reviewer below was expecting from a park in a national forest but camping in the woods is a benefit of this park. The sites are huge. Our 36' TT fit just fine. It gorgeous and we will return every chance we get. The only negative I can possibly post is that the reserved sites are not available after labor day which makes no sense. We camped at Grove Campground in a Motorhome.

Wonderful USDA park operated by American Land Management. Park hosts very pleasant, attentive, and readily available. Beware of reservation fee as even though this is USDA Federal Facility, commercial contractor has 'bite.' With senior golden age pass, we got $16 discount rate. 30amp service with water. Back-in site in Loop A was wonderful. Most sites have multi-tiered level (MH on one level, picnic/fire pit, etc on lower level). Great privacy and wonderful forest. Sadly, there was not any HOT water; minimal WARM water as attested to by the yelling of little kids trying to take showers. Facilities were clean; but, we did not use them as we prefer our hot water. Unique feature of this CG is 'double sites' for fun with friends. Great CG - definitely return as we stayed 2 days. We camped at Grove Campground in a Motorhome.

Really enjoyed this campground. One of the nicest sites we've stayed in, although without a sewer hook up. There was a beach for swimming, a marina, and hiking trails. The campground hosts were very nice. Also, the site we stayed in was one of the easier back-ins we've done, as it was positioned at an angle to the road. Also, the site had a very unique tiered structure. There was our parking pad and then there was a set of steps leading down to our picnic area in the woods: really nice. Would stay here again! We camped at Grove Campground in a Motorhome.

We read all reviews and checked all we could find on this park, sounded good. Paid for 8 days in advance site unseen. WE got here and immediately tried to find a better site, no luck. Said it was on lake, it's not even near, only if you look though some of the trees, can you see water. The only trail goes nowhere, cannot get to lake! Only way to get to the lake was at the commercial boat dock (very unfriendly). Our site is in the reserve area. The pad is right at the road in untrimmed weeds with no view of anything. The table was 40 feet away on big rock with a 20 foot drop-off at the edge into trees. Nothing to do here, would have been better in my driveway. We gave up our money spent after 2 days and moved out. Checked out Holly Cove a few miles away: much better. We camped at Grove Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The park itself is still as nice as it was since my last review however personnel issues have made the camping experience very bad. American Land Leisure are the operators of this campground for the federal government. The campground manager has proven to be a very rude and enforces the rules of the campground beyond what is called for. My last experience was very miserable and I won't be back until American Land and Leisure has fixed this problem. We camped at Grove Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a federal campground and has 40 sites in 2 sections that are first come first serve and another section that has 12 sites that is reserve only thru an 800 number. All site have large blacktop pads and numerous trees due to it being in a national forest. All sites have a rock area with picnic table and fire ring. There is a bathroom in each section however there is only one shower house with 3 showers per side and the are handicapped accessable. We camped at Grove Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
