More Info On Campground

Here is the site layout of the campground. As you can see it looks like two campgrounds side by side. The Horse Park is 4 miles north of Lexington,Ky on I-75 exit 120. This campground usually is full but,there is always primitive camping. Each area have their own shower houses.

We are leaving Cumberland Gap National Park today,heading north.
We have enjoyed these 2 weeks. We have hiked 3 trails and have walked approximately 50 miles. We thought that was pretty good for 2 old folks.
