Health Benefits of Campgrounds
1. From The New Air
You take in more oxygen when you spend time next to a lot of trees. It’s not just in your mind the feeling of pleasure you get when you take the first breath of air at the campground — well, it’s theoretically, but it’s a release of serotonin from the extra oxygen. When there is plenty of oxygen, the body can operate with less pressure. That’s not the only advantage that fresh air has. Research shows that some time outside will raise your blood pressure, enhance digestion, and provide an additional boost to your immune system. You get some extreme health benefits from the extra oxygen and low levels of toxins when you spend a few days outdoors.
It is a lot of fun to camp alone, but if you bring a friend or family member along on your red river camping adventure, you will share a special experience together that will help you sustain a safe, happier friendship. According to studies published in the American Journal of Public Health, socializing will prolong your life and delay memory issues and, aside from the medical advantages, a few close relationships make life more enjoyable. Invite a pair of friends out for your next outing.
3. Moods Improved
Daily campers will also chat about how they feel better the first couple of days back from a vacation. This is not without merit; spending more time in the sunshine outdoors can even outweigh the melatonin levels in your brain. Melatonin is the hormone that makes you feel sleepy and can cause feelings of sadness, so before and after your trip you can experience improved overall moods by red river camping.
4. Less Stress
The Red River Gorge weather & camping helps you to deal with depression as well. In just about every way possible, stress will adversely impact your health, and by allowing yourself some stress-free time at the campsite, you place far less pressure on your mental and physical faculties. Lack of stress is associated with an increase in oxygen levels, higher serotonin levels, and the regulated melatonin levels described above. There’s also an emotional aspect at work here because when you do something that you love, it’s harder to be frustrated or upset.
Let’s not ignore the most evident value of camping: you waste a lot of time doing outdoor exercises. You eat more calories than you will eat hanging in an office, even though you take a fishing trip, and if you hike or bike, you do aerobic fitness that will help keep your heart and lungs safe. Your rate of exercise can vary, but hikers burn 120-300 calories per hour, everywhere.

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.
