River Clean-Up
2015 Thompson RV Park River Cleanup, April 21 starting at 3 PM

This cleanup is a partnership between Union College Outdoors, Spiritual Life and Barbourville Tourism. We will remove trash from the Cumberland River and its surrounding banks at the Thompson RV Park. This is an opening act of kindness the day before Earth Day in which we hope everyone will get out and do their small part to clean up the area we call home. If you would like to be part of this river cleanup please contact Andy Messer at or Sean Trinque at

What should I bring to the clean up?

  1. A pair of shoes you don’t mind getting wet and dirty.
  2. A pair of work gloves if mud, muck and trash are not your favorite things to hold.
  3. A positive attitude and a feeling of Barbourville pride.
