The office building and campground entrance is at the middle of the campground. There are a number of nice amenities available.
We don’t usually see an exercise room at campgrounds. Cave Country has several exercise machines available.
The room also has a nice TV viewing area and a pool table.
The camp store has a limited selection of RV accessories, laundry products, and a few other items.
A clean laundry facility has two washers and two dryers. During our visit, the washer cost $1.50 per load.
Just outside the laundry, you’ll find a small pool. Unfortunately, during our April visit, the pool wasn’t open yet.
WiFi is available. We tested it by streaming TV on a FireStick. It worked well and we were able to watch TV with no buffering. Cave Country also has cable TV with almost 50 channels available.
While Cave Country doesn’t have many amenities for younger visitors like a playground or bouncy pillow, it does have the best dog park we have found so far. The dog park is a large, grassy area. It is separated from the campground by a row of tall trees. There is even a shaded place to site.
Rita isn’t usually interested in the dog parks at most campgrounds. They are often small and have dirt with no grass. However, she really enjoyed playing frisbee and chasing a tennis ball at Cave Country.
A bathroom and showers are also available at Cave Country. They were updated and clean.
Cave Country seemed to be very accessible. Things were pretty level and there were no stairs to enter buildings.
Cave Country is near the interstate and near a rail line. You will likely hear some noise from these during your visit.
