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 campground is a US Fee Area. The Laurel County side, with 9 sites,  is open all year. The Pulaski County side, with 19 sites,  is open from mid-April through mid-October. An overlook along Bee Rock Loop 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.
