"Cave Run Lake, "Twin Knobs Campground"" Morehead by Darkeyedgirl

Morehead Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 19 photos

Glorious Sunsets!

If you are looking for a lake-side campground with some BEAUTIFUL sunsets.... this is the place.

You can also boat, fish, and do other camping-type things (sit around and drink beer and shoot the breeze), but for those of us in life who want to sit and watch the sun sink into a big beautiful lake... bring a camera and soak it all in!

Serene, mostly private...

We spent lots of time down on the rocks watching the clouds / sunsets and listening to the waves hit the shore.

The campground DOES have a sandy beach, down a ways from where the rocky beach is; but it was closed at the time of year we went (September).

This 'rocky beach' area used to actually be a wall that crumbled; so there are plenty of large, flat rocks to steady yerself on (for those of us who are vertically challenged most days, walking on rocks is not exactly a favorite pasttime UNLESS they are large and flat and 'walkonable'...)...

"Let's go to the map!"

This is an overhead map (drawn, not Googlemapped) of the full facility, so you can see how the 'loops' lay out.

The sandy beach is down on the lower left of the map; the rocky beach (and glorious sunsets!) are up on the upper left hand side.

You come into the Twin Knobs Campground from the far right (the long single road); and then enter the park - get yer badge if you've prepaid or, pay and try to find a spot. Some spots are reservable ahead of time; others are "first come first serve".

The loops are alphabetical; beginning with Loop A, ending somewhere in the middle of the alphabet... we loved loved LOVED Loop I. Loop G has the BEST view of the lake AND sunsets. Loop I however was buried more in the woods than the other loops; and our spot was 'mostly' private (more on that later)...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Close to just about anywhere in KY; clean; lovely!
  • Cons:Some campers don't abide by the leash rule...
  • In a nutshell:We go here every September. Our camping getaway, pure Heaven!
