Clear Creek Campground Map

Clear Creek Campground is located on Cumberland Ranger District off Zilpo National Forest Scenic Byway near a quiet stream. Cave Run Lake is nearby. Each campsite has a tent pad, grill and lantern pole. 

Visit the nearby Clear Creek Iron Furnace, located at the Clear Creek Picnic Area.  This historic landmark dates back to the early 1800s. An interpretive sign at the furnace explains how the furnace was used in the region's early development.
