Spook Cave & Campground

Spook Cave and Campground Logo


Natural beauty surrounds you when camping at our campground. Lovely waterfall onsite, as well as direct access to Bloody Run Trout Stream. Choose a spacious full hook-up site or perhaps a log cabin overlooking our fishing and swimming lake. All sites and cabins are the perfect places for making family memories. Families with kids enjoy camping near the playground and volleyball court; across the stream are the shower facilities and all the action of the gift shop and Spook Cave. Other highlights include towering limestone bluffs, stunning fall foliage, hiking trails, a swimming pond with sand beach, an occasional train passing through, golf cart rentals, and a propane fill station. Each site and cabin has its own picnic table and fire ring for evening relaxation. Throughout the park, you can upload and share all those pictures with our fiber optic wireless internet.
