We loved the park. Rates are cheap. Park is scenic with the remains of railroad tracks, depot (can't go in it), remains of coal mining operation next door, green grass. If you like a quiet place with ruins & history to explore, this park & whole area has plenty of that. We couldn't get the cable TV to work. We mentioned this to the museum where you register, & they told us to check with City Hall, which we didn't do. There are trees planted in the park, but not big enough to give shade. Also there is no sign out on the road showing the location of the campground! The roads are narrow in that area & there isn't any place to make a turn in a big rig, so we were lucky to find it. There is no bathhouse or office, only the Kentucky Coal Museum where you register. I was also disappointed that the mine tour wasn't open & one of the volunteers said it hadn't been open for a year and a half, & it didn't sound like it was going to be open anytime soon. We camped at Portal 31 RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a small park that is located next to the railroad station, on the grounds of what was once Kentucky's largest coal mining operation. The operation ceased in the 1960's and the the area is being preserved in an attempt to allow people to see what an early twentieth century, company owned, mining town was like. They are shortly going to open a section of the mine for tours. The town of Benham, which ajoins Lynch, has a museum that depicts life in a coal mining town. The park is not fancy. The parking pads are gravel with grassy living areas. There are no public restrooms or showers, so tents or pop ups would not be practical. There is no office. There are no entertainment facilities. You register at the coal mining museum in Benham and drive up to Lynch (about a mile). It is simply a place to park while you explore the history of Lynch/Behham coal mining. It is in close proximity to Kingdom Come State park. This park has hiking trails, a fishing lake with paddle boats, and picnic areas with slides and swings for the kids. We camped at Portal 31 RV Park in a Motorhome.
