Flood-Damaged Campground Reopens After Revamp

The Daniel Boone National Forest (Kentucky) is reopening a campground after it was damaged by severe flooding in 2019.

According to a report, the fully revamped Bee Rock Campground in London was opened to the public on Friday, the Forest Service said in a statement. The move came after a partial reopening late last year.

According to officials, the campground has been completely renovated in the past three years and now has new tent pads and fire rings on every campsite.

The historic sublimity bridge constructed in 1942 by the Civilian Conservation Corps to connect the Laurel and Pulaski County sides of the campground has also been fully restored.

“We know that Bee Rock Campground has been the site of so many fond memories for our visitors, and so we wanted to ensure that we weren’t just making a quick fix to this beloved campground,” London District Ranger Jason Nedlo said.

The funding for the project came from visitor-supported recreation fees and the Great American Outdoors Act.

If you’d like to stay in the Bee Rock Campground, just a few feet away from Rockcastle River, there is a $15 fee for a single person or a $20 fee for a double.
