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.

We have over 45 level, clean primitive campsites with fire rings, picnic tables and gravel driveways. All of our RV sites are equipped with 30 amp and 50 amp electric hookups. We strive to offer you a safe, clean and beautiful place to camp, fish and swim during your stay. Plus, you can fill your bellies at our country store and restaurant, and catch entertainment at our concert stage. We look forward to seeing you and your family at Callie’s Lake and Campground very soon!

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 ...
