Camping in Red River Gorge

Welcome to Callie’s Lake and Campground in Red River Gorge Kentucky! Our beautiful fifty acre campground is located within the Daniel Boone National Forest in Eastern Kentucky, and we are very pleased to offer RV and primitive camping next to our fully stocked four acre fishing and swimming lake.

Little Savannah worked with Callie on a busy Saturday night. She insisted to work in the store instead of playing on her last night with us. She learned how to run the cash register and stock up the pop cooler. Such a hard little worker and all she wanted for payment was an ice cream!! 🍦 #workforalmostfree #futureemployee #minicallie ...
