little is left beyond an old cemetery and a sites identified on an 
interpretive walk located near the campground.

The second section on the north side of the river is RV-friendly with more open and sunny campsites and only fair privacy. The campground is in a heavily wooded stand of mixed hardwoods providing excellent fall foliage. Although the view is better from the north side, both sections overlook the river. A popular resort area in the late 1800s, there is little evidence remaining. The Old Sublimity Bridge, construct by the Civilian Conversation Corps (CCC) in 1942, provides access via this walking bridge to each of the campground's section.

A lantern pole is provided at each site along with table and fire ring. There is an old iron furnace (circa 1839) at the adjacent picnic area.

Deer loop is a small and compact single loop, with sites tucked in among hemlock, short leaf pine and oak which provide ample shade to all sites.

With a horseshoe shape, Raccoon Loop hugs the banks of Rock Creek and is also a trailhead for Sheltowee Trace. Surrounded by a dense forest of mixed hardwoods, Raccoon Loop is only lightly forested making it sunny. Separation rather than vegetation between sites makes privacy fair. The campground offers a wilderness camping experience without the need to hike a great distance. This is bear country; practice safe food storage techniques. A "Food Storage Order" is in place at this campground. This means all food must be properly stored in a bear-resistant container and suspended; stored in a closed, motor vehicle with a solid top; or, stored in a closed, hard-body RV.

CAMPGROUND NAME: Zilpo VISIT DATE: 10/08/1996 UPDATE DATE: 2/13/2017 STATE: Kentucky REGION: Southern RANGER DISTRICT: Cumberland NEAREST CITY/TOWN: Salt Lick RESERVATIONS: 1-877-444-6777 or make on-line reservation DIRECTIONS: In Salt Lick, KY, at the intersection of State Rt. 211 and US Rt. 60, take Rt. 211 south for 3.6 miles to Forest Recreation sign. Turn left at sign onto Clear Creek Rd. and go 3.9 miles to Zilpo campground sign. Turn left at sign onto Forest Rt. 918 and go 8.7 miles to campground. GENERAL COMMENTS: The elevation is 800 ft. The campground is scenic and located on a peninsula in the middle portion of Cave Run Lake. It has eight sections - Arrow, Bat, Cardinal, Deer, Eagle, Fox, Goose, and Heron. These sections are loops except for Deer which is two spurs forming a "Y". The turn around for each spur should be ample for most rigs. Electric hookups are scattered throughout the campground. Goose and Heron sections, located at the end of the peninsula and furthest from campground entrance, are in the denser stand of mixed hardwoods. Some sites in each section overlook the lake. Overall, privacy between campsites is fair to good. There is an excellent view from Tater Knob fire tower located not far from campground and just off Forest Rt. 918. Three miles of shoreline offer bank fishing. One "Camper's Cabin" is available; contact the ranger district office for information. There is a camp store with limited groceries, camping supplies, firewood and ice. Interpretive programs are held on the weekends. Camper's cabins available through recreation.gov. This is bear country; practice safe food storage techniques. No alcoholic beverages are allowed in the campground.
