Zilpo Campground

Zilpo Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Zilpo is a large recreation area that is well run and well-maintained. You are never far from the water here, as Zilpo is located on a large peninsula extending deep into Cave Run Lake. So with just the right mix of land and water, you can tent-camp and otherwise enjoy this part of the Daniel Boone National Forest and the water over which it overlooks.

The campground is divided into numerous loops that are not in alphabetical order, as sites have been added over time. Overall, the campground is well kept, and the sites are in good shape. The sites are generally large and far apart from one another. There's a real mix of reservable and nonreservable, electric and nonelectric sites."
