It is surrounded by the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park. The bath houses have recently been renovated, very clean and are extremely nice. They have motion sensor – heat lights, that come on when you enter. Each shower room has on demand hot water, with a tall shower head and a hand held shower sprayer. Each loop has its own bath house. Each bath house has 2 of these shower rooms, a men’s and a women’s restroom. The restroom lights also have motion sensor lights.
There are 41 electric hookups but only in loops B & C . There are no water hookups in any of the sites. Potable is available at the dump station. The dump station offers 2 lanes.
Electric hookups only available in loops B & C. Sites are on a low sloping hill, so most are unlevel. Several of the fire rings are very close to the camper parking, be sure to check this before detaching your rig.
Be sure to stop into the National Park visitor center. The town of Cumberland Gap is only about 3 miles away and has a couple of “small town” restaurants and shops. Just down the road in Virginia is The Wilderness Road State Park.
