Welcome to the NRES Extended Field Experience at Robinson Forest!

Here you will hopefully find some answers to your general questions about the camp. Robinson Forest is a research forest owned and operated by the University of Kentucky located in Breathitt County, KY.

During your stay in the forest you will stay in a cabin with your fellow classmates. Your meals will be both cooked and served in the onsite cafeteria or you will bring a packed lunch if the day is spent working in the field. You will also have access to a classroom with computers to complete the homework assignments.

What are the sleeping arrangements like?
The students are divided into two separate cabins. Inside the cabins the students will have access to a fridge and microwave if they wish to bring their own drinks or snacks. As this is university property there is no alcohol allowed on the property.

Students will share bunkbeds with their fellow classmates and will need to bring their own pillows, bedding and/or sleeping bags. There are also couches inside the cabin and furniture on the front porch for students to relax during down time.

What are the bathrooms like?
There is a bathhouse located on the camp only a few feet from the cabins which features full plumbing and showers with hot water.

What is the food like?
Most meals will be cooked and eaten in the mess hall located on the camp. While the food is tasty students may want to bring snacks as dinner is served early to allow time for evening activities. All dietary restrictions can be accommodated.
