There are 10 loops, many have no electricity at all. We stayed in H, with electricity. Water is between sites, although a few sites throughout the park have water and electric on site. Be prepared with water jugs, or lengthy hose to fill your water tank. The water available is shown on the park map, scattered throughout the park. We are in a pop up camper and were fine walking to the water faucet to fill our 8 gal water jug. The staff was very friendly, and worked hard at keeping the sites in order and restrooms clean. We camped at Daniel Boone National Forest (Twin Knobs Recreation Area) in a Tent Trailer.

The lake is fantastic for boating/fishing/kayaking. There are a few trails as well. We will definitely go back for another visit. Nearby Morehead has restaurant options if you are inclined.

Great campground in a beautiful area. Hope to return when we can stay longer than overnight. Our site has been used for a CG Host. Extra parking spots conveniently located to site. We camped at Daniel Boone National Forest (Twin Knobs Recreation Area) in a Motorhome.

This campsite is incredible - the very best of our recent 5-week trip. Lots of staff and volunteers keep the place clean and well-maintained. The sites are large, level and easily accessible. We stayed in an electric site, but would be happy in some of the sites with no hookups. The area is incredibly beautiful, and there is lots to do within the National Forest. We decided to spring for a double site, which meant we also didn't get the normal senior discount. We plan to come back!

Loved this clean, quiet, and well run park. Sites are spacious and well spaced. The showers are free and very clean and roomy. I was most impressed by the cleanliness. We were there for 10 days and without fail within 30 minutes or less someone was there cleaning out all vacated sites so they were ready for the next person very quickly. Good roads for biking, plenty of hiking trails and public marinas for boaters. They also have double sites for camping with friends or if you need space for your boat. Just a great place all around.

Site F-19 has partial lake view. $6.00 extra for that for a total of 30.00 per night. No power or water. High for what it is, but nice.

Lady at gate was nice and tried to make the very hinky process of picking a site a little easier. We camped at Daniel Boone National Forest (Twin Knobs Recreation Area) in a Tent.

One of, if not the nicest campground I have ever stayed at. Friendly staff that goes beyond your expectations to make sure your stay is the best. Facilities that are clean, well kept and outstanding. General Store, beach, and very large camping sites. This is a very large campground situated in the mountains and on the Cave Run Lake Shoreline. Very wooded and private. Great boating, fishing and hiking. In all of the USA this is my favorite campground. I can not say enough positives about Twin Knobs.

This is a remote campground but within reasonable distance to a small city. Its a very large park with hundreds of sites for tents, campers and motorcoaches. Sits on a very large Lake (Cave Run Lake) situated in the mountains of the Daniel Boone National Forest. Sites are large and spread out. Fishing , boating , hiking and a nice beach. If you like stunning scenery this is a place for you. ON a scale of 5 stars I would give this 10 Stars

We stayed here for 2 nights as a walk in and loved it. The sites were spacious and were very quiet, especially since one was a Friday night. We got a site with a view of the lake and was very pleased. The only thing I didn't like was you had to fill your fresh water tank to use instead of direct hookup. No big deal, but I didn't do my homework before coming. They had water spigots all over for you to fill up at so a easy fix. We will stay here again.

Campground roads are tight for a 40 ft motorhome but can be done with care. Due to location of marker posts, getting into our site (B8) was difficult and took some maneuvering. No full hookup sites except for hosts. Electric only with water spigots throughout loops. Neither potable water or flush hose at dump station threaded so we could not fill our tank nor rinse black tank. As others have said, sites are well separated: lots of privacy. We will camp here again. I want to have time to explore the area: lots of trails to walk, etc. We camped at Daniel Boone National Forest (Twin Knobs Recreation Area) in a Motorhome.

Very nice as others have reported. Well spaced sites affording some privacy. Level, paved pads, gravel sites. Antenna TV reception did not include any network channels. Our Verizon phone and broadband worked well. Quiet. Trees. Some sites have an excellent view of the lake, ours J17 did not. Rate is with Golden Geezer card, or whatever it is called.

This is a very nice National Forest Campground. We had a site with full hookups. Although the road on the loops are narrow, we had no problem getting our 40' motor home around them and no problem backing into the campsite. We leveled with no problem, and much to our surprise managed to get satellite TV reception in spite of the trees. Campsite is paved, and RV is on concrete pad. Campsites are nicely spaced. We camped at Daniel Boone National Forest (Twin Knobs Recreation Area) in a Motorhome.

The sites are very spacious and mostly wooded. A glitch was that the drinking water hose at the dump area was NOT threaded for filling our tank. Each loop has several threaded spigots; however, you are blocking the road while filling. Verizon cell and data worked well. The staff was very helpful in finding a "first come" site to handle our 40 ft. MH. We thought we would be closer to the attractions in Lexington; however, most of them are on the west side of Lexington, and we are 40 miles+ to the east side. Just means some extra driving. The beach is closed here right now because it is underwater due to the high water level. The boat ramp is open and we plan to kayak.

We arrived without a reservation but had no problem getting a nice site. We were in #A37 which was very large and private and right across from a water faucet, which was handy for filling our water tank. This is a beautiful campground that is nicely maintained. The hosts stay busy cleaning up every site as it is vacated and leaving each one pristine for the next camper. Most sites are nicely separated from others by large spaces filled with trees and bushes, providing privacy for almost every site. Firewood and ice is available at the check in office. The people working there were very friendly and nice! We enjoyed riding our bicycles and walking all through this campground and would love to return to this area some time! It's a beautiful campground! If the store and laundry had been open, I would have given it a 10! We camped at Daniel Boone National Forest (Twin Knobs Recreation Area) in a Travel Trailer.
