    Jefferson Memorial Forest features a campground for tent camping and can accommodate both families and groups. Although the Forest is only minutes from Metro Louisville, camping here seems like a much more remote camping experience. Located within the Horine Reservation, the campground is in the uplands of the Forest and has good separation between individual campsites. Seven family campsites and four group campsites are available. Latrines and water are near to all the sites.

    Welcome to My Old Kentucky Home State Park Campground, nestled near the charming town of Bardstown, KY. This spot is a hidden gem, especially for those looking to explore the bourbon trail. The campground is small but cozy, making it a great place to unwind after a day of distillery tours.

    The campground offers electric and water hookups, though you might need some extra extension cords as the hookups can be a bit far from the sites. It's a good idea to bring plenty of blocks to level your RV, as the terrain isn't the flattest. Pets are welcome, so feel free to bring your furry friends along for the adventure.

    One of the standout features here is the friendly atmosphere. Visitors often mention the welcoming staff and neighbors, which adds to the overall pleasant experience. The campground is also big rig friendly, and there's a sanitary dump station available for your convenience.

    For those who enjoy a bit of history and culture, the campground is right next to the historic My Old Kentucky Home, which offers tours. Plus, there's a golf course on-site if you fancy a round or two. If you're traveling with kids, they'll love the playground nearby.

    While the sites are a bit close together, the location more than makes up for it. You're just a stone's throw away from Bardstown, where you can explore local breweries, shops, and more. Don't miss out on the local donuts at Hadorn's Bakery—it's a must-visit!

    In summary, My Old Kentucky Home State Park Campground is a great base for exploring the bourbon trail and enjoying the local culture. Just come prepared with a few extra supplies, and you'll have a fantastic stay.
