We started our day by going to the lodge for the Sunday buffet and we were not disappointed! We love the lodge atmosphere. The service is so nice (we didn't even need to ask for refills) and the food ... more »

My family had a great time tent camping here Memorial Day weekend. Tons of interesting and beautiful nature to see and explore. Campground was clean and quite all staff interactions were friendly. Mini golf looked fun though we didn't play. Nice pool and good hiking trails. We plan to go back again sometime.

Beautiful trails, vary in length from less than one mile to a total of more than 25 miles, cross small streams tumbling over rock toward a small lake. Plan to take time to listen! Numerous natural arches, carved by wind and water through limestone rock, dot the area and are perfect backdrops for photos. Restaurant meals are tasty and varied and include Kentucky favorites such as catfish, Kentucky Hot Brown, burgers, chicken, salads, vegetables, and more. The breakfast includes biscuits the size of hamburger buns. The lodge is comfortable and clean.

We had a camp site right on the edge of the woods, which was very nice as there were quite a few fireflies out! The bathrooms were a walk, but they weren't too dirty. After a night we went over to go on the X cave tour and that was really fun! A did get a bit wet but it was worth it. I would really like to come back and go on the bat cave tour.

Carter Caves is so much fun. You don't even need to spend money, other than gas. Take a picnic and explore the area. Take water shoes and walk the creek. It's cold though. We enjoy ourselves every time we go.

Carter Caves is a great state park in eastern KY. There are several Caves which you can take guided tours of. The staff does a great job planning events throughout the year and especially warmer camping months. I haven't stayed at the lodge but I have ate there and it has been very good every time. The trails are well kept in the park. The ones in the Tygart State forest, which boarders the park, can be a little less maintained but still easy to navigate. Campground is nice but be cautious of night time wildlife. Make sure you pick up your trash and any food before going to bed.
