WORST PLACE EVER

This place is a tiny little dump that is not at all maintained by management. Dead trees all over the property, grass not cut or cared for properly, management rude and unfriendly, and bath house is a nightmare!! No wifi for guests like they claim as it doesn't work and didn't work our entire stay!…

A truly hidden paradise

They have many activities, but we were stopping just for the night. It was a campground I would definitely go back to.

Wonderfully beautiful, peaceful, and friendly

This campground is located at the mouth of the Elkhorn Creek and Kentucky River. It is extremely popular among locals who want to sit in an tube float and float down the creek to the Kentucky River, a trip that takes approximately 3 to 4 hours. Note you have to bring your own tube. Nearly all of…

Quiet and convenient

Stayed over the weekend and had a lovely relaxing time.

Pros: quiet, close to Brookville, lots of trails nearby, nice swimming beach Cons: hard to get a site next to the playground - it's kinda out of the way.

Loved our site - lots of trees for hanging a hammock and very roomy! Wouldn't book…

Hiking and History

We stayed during the week following Labor Day. We had no problem getting reservations and the check in process was easy. There is a pool, laundry room, and putt putt golf course. Our site, #39, was fairly level. We needed our entire length of water hose, 100 ft., to connect to the water spigot. The…

Fun stay, maybe a one and done

We spent a weekend here with a group. Our campsites backed up to each other so that was great to have extra room for the kids to run around. Sites are spacious, but quite a bit unlevel where we stayed. Some super nice campers helped us. Bring an extra long hose as the water hookups are very far…

Nice campground with awesome hiking

 This place is a neat little campground. The campground is right near a river and there are a bunch of little waterfalls in the area that you can hike to. We stayed in a tent but there’s a bunch of electric sites for RVs as well. Bathrooms weren’t bad and had showers. Sites were large and flat, but…

Camping is great!!

I remember coming here for years, in diapers even and I’m 47 now. Brought my kids and my grandkids. I have been there almost every weekend for the past 2 months. I absolutely love camping here and would recommend it to everyone. Thanks for so many good memories ❤️

Nice camping on the river

We stayed in site 107 on a Sunday night and had the section all to ourselves. I think the place is quite busy on weekends though. Our son fished and we watched random people float down river. It was perfect for overnight stay passing through. I was concerned driving in as neighborhood looked a…

The perfect weekend get away

This was perfect being only 20 minutes from our home. It was quiet and the bathrooms were super clean. The sites were flat and generous.

Great Family Atmosphere!

What a great place to have our first camping experience with our children! Each site came with a fire ring and picnic table bench. It was pitch black at night around the campground, but the bathroom facilities were well lit and very clean. There’s an absolutely wonderful playground inside the…

Great weekend getaway

We booked 5 days before and were pleasantly surprised at how good of a site we had. Pretty level, plenty of room for our 43’ fifth wheel. We didn’t swim but the beach looked nice. We did fish a little.

Cross country traveler

The facilities are clean. Most sites are uneven. Fire rings are here. Local grocery stores sell wood. Lake nearby with boat rentals and paved bike paths. Good family environment. Beware of sneaky raccoons. River access down path behind lot 129.
