Take Exit 33 off the Mountain Parkway and turn into the rest area. L & E Railroad Place is left and go about 1000 feet and turn right across the bridge and enter Natural Bridge Campground. Natural Bridge Campground is set less than a 1/2 mile from the Mountain Parkway in Slade, KY and is surrounded by mountains, cliffs and gorges. It is a small peaceful campground with sites ranging from primitive to 30amp/50amp and water hook.
In addition, a large grassy field provides ample room for overflow camping for tent and car campers, with a large shelter and electricity. Many sites are shaded and located next to the Bolin Branch of the Red River. There is a bathhouse with flush toilets and shower house for hot showers.
The campground also features a catch and release fishing pond, free wireless internet access and a dump station.
Firewood, ice and snacks are available at the shelter. We are pet friendly and our area has much to offer like Hiking, Zip Line and Rock Climbing. The campground is centrally located to Natural Bridge, the Cliffty Wilderness Area and the Red River Gorge. It is located one mile from Natural Bridge State Resort and 3-1/2 miles from the entrance to the Red River Gorge. The Kentucky Reptile Zoo is located next door.
The campground is the perfect home-base for all your adventures! Spend the day exploring and come back and sit around the campfire, fish at the stocked pond, play a game of basketball, or check out the games available! It’s a great place to relax and getaway!
Natural Bridge Campground is open seasonally from early April to late October/early November.

The staff was pleasant and friendly. We stayed in a cabin and it was clean and neat. We caught a few fish in the pond. It was quiet and peaceful at night! There is a nice creek for kids to play in. It was close to all the sites in the area.

Love this camp. Staff is helpful and friendly, and .ost of the sites are in the shade for a good portion of the day due to the surrounding hills.

Camped out there for our wedding in Red River Gorge. Very laid back campground. We had a great time there. Close to Miguel's and walking distance to the reptile museum. Can't wait to go back.

I would suggest this Campground to everyone planning a visit there, it's right off exit 33 and easy to reach. The Campground is clean with well maintained bathrooms. Very friendly and helpful staff. We had an amazing two days there. It's close to the gas station and subway and just a few minutes from all the trails.

Stay there last night with our family, we were greeted warmly. Delivered firewood to our campsite. Between the hospitality and location of the camp ground we had one of the best camping experiences at a campground!
