Middle fork was nice but did need some improvements on the campground itself, the spaces were small making some people park in the grass or road, Whittleton campground was awfull we drove by there and its for tents only some people looked like they had been living there a couple of months
Hemlock Lodge is a delightful accomodation, nestled on a moutainside. The 35 rooms each feature a private balcony overlooking the pool complex and Hoedown Island Lake. There are also meeting rooms, a gift shop, and an excellent restaurant. The lodge is open year round.
We have stayed in Lodges at many of the Kentucky State Resort Parks and consider them an unuaually good bargain. Rates for a double room are as low as $42.95 per night in the low season, and still only $91.95 during peak times.
There are two campgrounds in Natural Bridge State Resort Park: Whittleton and Middle Fork. a 3/4 mile trail leads from the Whittleton Campground to Henderson's Cave Arch. The Middlefork Campground is on the banks of the Middle Fork of the Red River and has the more secluded campsites in it's primitive (no hook ups) camping section. This is our preference.
A basic site without electricity costs $12.00 per night. A site with hookups will cost you $22.00. Modern restrooms are in each campground. Campsite reservations are not available, so they are offered only on a first come, first served basis. This can present a problem, especially on weekends and in summer because the park is very popular. Private campgrounds and those operated by the Daniel Boone National Forest are also available in the area.
