Set back almost a mile from the main road on its own private drive, Lago Linda Hideaway provides security and privacy for its campers in a gorgeous setting. The 35 Piney Woods and Lazy Oaks campsites (which can be reserved in advance) lie on ridge tops among groves of oak trees, allowing campers to spread out and enjoy as much privacy as they wish. All of these campsites are graveled and have electrical hookups.
Each site has its own city water, picnic table, and fire ring. In addition, a large, grassy meadow provides ample overflow camping for tent and car campers, including a big, covered, cooking pavilion with electricity along with another covered area that provides additional shelter for a number of tents.
Lago Linda Hideaway has a bathhouse with hot showers and flush toilets, as well as Broadband Internet access. Well-behaved children and dogs are welcome to this accommodating environment.
Many rock climbers visiting the Red River Gorge have chosen to make Lago Linda Hideaway their home away from home due to the peaceful surroundings and its close proximity to some of the Red’s finest crags, including the world-renowned Motherlode (a scant 4 miles away). Climbers can be found sharing beta and making climbing plans around the campfire or in the Country Café on cold mornings or evenings, or simply gathering together to watch a movie or eat one of the weekend breakfasts that Linda announces on a chalkboard outside the café. “Sunday Breakfast: Breakfast Burrito, $4” calls the masses into the comfortable café to sample Linda’s renowned cooking skills.
