Points of Interest
Diamond caverns is a nice Thousand Trails park, but the only reason we came was to see Mammoth Cave National Park. When we got here, we found it confusing as we had to check in at little building at Diamond Caves which looks like a tourist trap on the right hand side of the highway, and could not see the Thousand Trails park from the road. I got lost getting there as I thought my GPS was wrong again! Once over that hurdle, we got checked in in the Diamond Caverns shop, then were instructed to drive up a little road on the opposite side of the highway to the campground. There is no guard shack or gate, but security was good in spite of that, and the host was very helpful to us in getting setup. We had a nice time here at this park, and got to know the campers around us. They recommend one use the hot tub as a tornado shelter, it did not look like a good idea to us, so when the tornado came we went to cave at Diamond Caverns museum instead, it has a cave to hang out in. Caves are not impacted by high wind. This park is close to nothing but the caves, a Walmart about 20 miles away, and of course Bowling Green is to the south about 30 miles. There is a Corvette Museum and they give tours of the Corvette plant there which if you like to see how things are built this place is better than Disney.

Rain preceding a tornado, but it missed us. Better luck next time.
