Koomer Ridge Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Koomer Ridge Campground is perched on the edge of the Red River Gorge Geological Area. Among other things, this area has more natural arches within it than anywhere else in the East. The work of 70 million years of wind and water has resulted in more than 100
arches and countless rock formations of other kinds. Many of these arches can be accessed via 60 miles of foot trails or by short walks from scenic roads that penetrate the geological area. And to top it off, Koomer Ridge is an ideal tent campground. But there is one little drawback--you can hear the autos driving the nearby Bert Combs Mountain Parkway from the campground. If you find this bothersome, read no further. I am no fan of car noise, but I found that the positives of Koomer Ridge easily overwhelm the one negative.

Now to the good parts. Pass the campground host, and veer right into this ridgetop camp. Pass shady, well-separated sites nestled off the road, and swing right on a small loop. The sites are on the inside of the loop, which often spells crummy camps, but not here at Koomer. The sites here are in good shape and offer more-than-adequate privacy and spaciousness. At the end of the loop is a fully equipped bathhouse that is in mint condition and kept that way by campground hosts."
