We used Passport America to find a campground near Mammoth Caves in Cave City, Ky. Singing Hills Campground http://www.singinghillsrvpark.com/ was fairly nice campground very near the many touristy attractions in the area. We were surprised at how many there were. However, we were there for the caves!
Singing Hills is run by a very nice couple. The wife, Beth Brown, we discovered was a retired teacher. We ended up chatting with her for quite some time as we cooled off from our excursions. She told me about a children’s book series, “Mrs. Piggle Wiggle” perfect for my first graders and introduced herself as the author of her own book, “Parenting is Rocket Science.” Listening to her stories about meeting Mr. Brown and raising their family were definitely uplifting. https://www.amazon.com/Parenting-Is-Rocket-Science/dp/0929540093
The campground sites are clean, but too close for Captain Jim and my comfort and very little shade. Shade was much needed as it was hot as Hades or the according to Jim, “the 4th level of Dante’s inferno!” We spent very little time outside; it just wasn’t possible.
We stayed 3 nights, but only because it was cheap (with the Passport America discount) and we would be going to the caves. It would have been too much trouble to find another campground.
Kaelin was happy with that decision because he could ride his bike and he even met a little boy he played with for short while. He also enjoyed that Mrs. Beth allowed him to take a couple of books with him. He’s now a fan of the “Warriors” book series.
I give Singing Hills a 3.5 rating. They really need some shade and cutting the grass would have been helpful. Also sites too close. I hate to give it such a low rating as the Brown’s are lovely people. Perhaps the cooler months?
Captain Jim would only give it a 3. He was not happy with not being able to hang out in the great outdoors. Of course, the heat was not the campground’s fault, but shade would have really helped that issue.
