Sublimity Bridge at Bee Rock Campground 39604

Bee Rock Campground, located on London Ranger District, has developed campsites on both sides of the Rockcastle River. The Laurel County side is open all year. The Pulaski County side is open from mid-April through mid-October.

An overlook along Bee Rock Trail provides a scenic view of the rocks and cliffs along Rockcastle River.  

The campground features Old Sublimity Bridge, a historic structure built by the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) in the late 1930s. The stone used in the abutments was quarried from the adjacent sandstone cliffs. The bridge has been restored for foot travel only.
