Camp at Miguel's Pizza

Miguel's Pizza - Search Nearby - Added by Shalee Blackmer

Miguel's Pizza offers cheap and unique camping with some of the best rock climbing in the Eastern U.S. In your downtime, enjoy good food, a basketball court, and other fun games.

The Red River Gorge is known for the best rock climbing in the east. A man named Miguel opened a pizzeria in the gorge, and soon began letting climbers camp behind the restaurant for a mere $2/night. Today, the tradition has continued, and dozens of climbers call Miguel's Pizza their climbing home.

Campers have the choice between sleeping in their car, a tent, or a hammock behind the restaurant. Some stay a night, and others have been there for months. The love for climbing remains the same throughout camp, and you'll often spend all day on the walls, and all night playing cards and laughing with fellow adventurers.

Camping remains $2/night per person, and showers cost $1.00 for four minutes. The restaurant offers breakfast, coffee, salads, pasta, and pizza. At night, all the climbers rush in with empty stomachs, and they go to bed eager to do it again tomorrow.

Awesome Community

Miguel's serves some amazing pizza and great gear! It's a laid back community of climbers. Although it can be busy in the peak season, it is a great place to relax after being in the gorge.
