One of the greatest benefits of the new trailer is not needing to check the weather before booking a campground. Previously, the summer months had been off-limits unless unseasonably cool weather blew in. We can power through the heat and humidity while on the trail, but sleeping in 70 degree mugginess is nearly impossible. But now, 110V to power the AC and we can go anywhere!
It’s been a while since we visited Red River Gorge – our favorite weekend spot. We love Koomer Ridge campground, but that is all first-come-first-served and there are only a handful of spots I would consider appropriate for a trailer. Nearby Natural Bridge State Park has two campgrounds – Middle Fork with 86 sites and Whittleton Creek with 94. They sit on opposite sides of Route 11 for easy access to the town of Slade. Both have sites with electricity and decent bathhouses. The tent sites at Middle Fork are dispersed along a road that parallels the creek. This is great for privacy, but makes a long walk to the developed bathhouse should you decide to forego the port-a-potties. The trailer sites are larger, but crowded. Our biggest complaint about Middle Fork campground is its proximity to the road. Be prepared for traffic noise all night long.
