Cummins Ferry Resort Camp

This RV park welcomes both RV and tent campers, maintaining separate campgrounds on either side of its Kentucky River boat ramp and marina area. There are almost 90 RV sites with electrical hookups. Although the view is scenic and made up of heavily wooded hills and the cliffs of the Kentucky River Pallisades, the RV park itself consists of blacktop lanes and RV sites spaced out with grassy islands. There are no trees separating RV sites and therefore little shade. In addition to the boating facilities, Cummins Ferry has a camp store, outdoor swimming pool, shower house, playground and dump station. Cummins Ferry is about 15 miles from Danville.
