About Elkhorn Campground

Since 1987, Elkhorn Campground has been family owned and operated. We are located in the capital city of Frankfort, Kentucky on the banks of the Elkhorn Creek. The park is open from April 1st thru October 31st each year. Limited camping sites are available during the winter months. There are 125 sites in the park of which 109 are paved. Sixty-one sites have full hookup, including cable TV. Extra long pull thru sites are available for big rigs and campers that are towing.

We are a family oriented campground with amenities to meet each family member's needs. Everyone can cool off at the pool, or perhaps enjoy a quick game of putt-putt. The campground also has horseshoes, volleyball, and basketball courts available for the young and old. Children can enjoy the large playground including swings, slides and other equipment located near the general store. Hand-dipped ice cream is always a treat after a day of fun in the sun. Dinner can be a quick "catch" from the Elkhorn Creek with a relaxing game of shuffleboard as the sun sets.

A pavillion is available that seats 200 people for camping clubs. A huge fireplace and portable walls help keep the chill off on cool evenings in the fall. A mini-arcade is also available in the pavillion.

Sites can be rented on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. There are limited monthly sites available in the park. Call ahead for reservations for your next family get away.

Very Nice Campsite

We only stayed one night but would definitely return. We got a pretty leveled site right on the river. Very helpful and friendly staff.

One of the nicest places

Managers are awesome , pool clean, laundry and store on site. Minutes from town - this place is taken care of and owners take pride.

Get get away!

From the kayaking , to the fishing , great place!

Best family oriented campground

I absolutely love this campground. There is a great deal of things to do with the kids(water wars and different events for them to participate in) the scenery is great and the owners are fantastic.

Great RV Campground

Pros: If you have an RV, kids and/dogs, this place is for you! It has a pool, mini golf, a playground for the kiddos and other such amenities. Lots of RVs here as well so the campground is very open. It seemed like everyone had a dog as well. The bathrooms and showers are clean and heated. There are also many sites on the creek which is nice.

Cons: Not really the best place for tent camping. It did ok since we were only there for 1 night. It does have campsite water and electric. Tent spots are not available on the creek which was a bummer. The bathrooms it seemed are right by the dump station and they smelled so bad of sewer we decided not to shower. It was that potent. There is only one bathroom and it's farthest from the tent sites.

Overall: if you have an RV or camper, this is a great place. Pass if you are tent camping.

Private Campground

Gravel and grass FHU sites mostly level. Great pool and bathhouse with full bath suites in beautiful tile. Very clean.

highly recommended, close to Lexington and the Ark encounter.


This is a great place.

Nice Quiet spot, 10 minutes off interstate.

We pulled in for 1 night in our 40' DP. nice campground, clean, friendly staff and very nice showerhouse with modern colors and tile. on a peaceful river. The pool & mini golf amd games in the large pavillion were extra touches.
