Thecosmilia Trichitoma

I have heard that brachiopods, corals and crinoids can be found along Crocus Creek.

Hi Stuart and welcome to the Fossil Forum . I have a lot of family in Kentucky and when I go to visit them I try to take advantage of the excellent fossil hunting there- all of it in roadcuts.  I've never been to Campbellsville, but the closest I've collected is a roadcut on Route 88 just south of Nolin Lake- plenty of Mississippian Age blastoids, crinoids, brachiopods, and bryozoans- mostly weathered out in the dirt embankments. There are other sites along Route 31E north of Bardstown- Ordovician brachiopods and corals. Any roadcut in the area where you are staying may be worth checking out also. Good luck.

many of the road cuts in the Campbellsville area have Mississippian fossils
