This trail has the most outstanding view of Cave Run Lake hands down!!

This is an amazing place to camp. Sites are spaced well with great privacy. Some sites are close to the lake (Cave Run Lake). Modern restrooms with showers on each loop. Usually a camp host on each loop as well. There is a boat ramp, beach, and a little camp store that has firewood and some basic food items. It is a way from town (Salt Lick) so double check everything before you leave home. There is a trail that takes you to an old fire tower. You can't climb up it anymore though. It fell victim to fire and is unsafe. If you like car camping, fishing, hiking, and privacy, Zilpo is the place to experience it.
