Alum Ford Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Camp on the Big South Fork near Kentucky’s highest waterfall. Located near a boat landing on the Big South Fork, the campground is strung along a dead-end gravel road on the edge of the river gorge. What made it even better were all the recreational opportunities nearby—hiking, boating, fishing, and swimming."

Great campground if you like primitive tent camping. We were there on a Monday night and only 2 sites were full. There are toilets but no water, so bring your own. The campground overlooks the Big South Fork and it was a 3 minute walk to swim in the river. The Sheltowee Trace runs right through the campground and we hiked from there to Yahoo Falls. Beautiful and peaceful campground.
