This was a short stay (for us) but quite pleasant. We chose the park because of its proximity to Mammoth Cave National Park (our primary goal) and good reviews. Singing Hills did not disappoint!
For a “no frills” park, the interior roads were surprisingly big rig friendly. We were assigned site 37 at the very end of the campground, which turned out to be a giant pull through / turn around site. We were able to pull right in without even unhooking our toad, which is quite unusual for us. The drive was sloped but the RV gravel pad was solid and nicely level. We were almost out by ourselves, surrounded by a very large grassy area. Other sites were much closer together and some were obviously sloped, so I guess we just got lucky! It was very peaceful and quiet at night, only the sounds of birds and the occasional frog intruded.
The full hook-ups worked great (50 amp electric). Since we were a bit of a walk from the bath house, I used my own shower facilities, but theirs looked fine – not fancy, but clean. Our AT&T cell/data coverage was adequate and Direct TV locked on with no trouble. We had a LOT of rain during our stay, but the site was well drained and we had no issues with standing water. Since we were there to tour the cave, the rain didn’t affect our plans.
I made my reservation here over the phone (they don’t have an automated web-based system) and was surprised that they did not require any deposit. They just asked that we call if our plans changed. I called again the day before check in just to verify we were on the books, and yes, we were! So their system isn’t fancy, but it seems to work efficiently.
The lady who checked us in was super-friendly and gave us information on the area as well as the campground. The normal rate for our site is around $45/night, but with Passport America discounts we were charged only $88 for our 3 night stay. The office has a lending book library and fairly extensive DVD library, which we didn’t take advantage of.
All in all, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the site and campground. It was easy in and easy out, we had a huge level site, and perfectly functional hookups. It’s all I really want in a campground, at a reasonable price. Mammoth Cave National Park is just a few miles down the road, which makes this RV park a perfect home base for exploration. Two thumbs up!
Bottom Line: Affordable and pleasant home base for exploring Mammoth Cave.
