    I've had a couple of trips kayak camping on the Green River in Mammoth Cave National Park. I loved it!
    Hanging and paddling = peas & carrots. It just goes together perfectly.

    I haven't backpacked up there in over a yr. Good place to go but some of the designated campsites aren't that great for hammocking

    Not the best backpacking, most of the trails are hores trails as well and get really rutted. I do love to canoe camp along the green river though, as long as the flood plain is open you can pretty much paddle and camp where ever you want. I am down there alomst every weekend in the summer and fall. The green river is calm enough you can paddle up or down without a issue. Never had a issue with finding plenty of trees to hang from, always a good time on the river.
