There aren’t very many trees and sites are crowded together. I don’t recommend going when campground is full. It’s more enjoyable when not so crowded. The employees are also not the friendliest people to deal with if you have a problem.
Wonderful camp site . Friendly staff !
I stayed at Fort Boonesborough last weekend and really enjoyed myself. The sites were clean, lawn well takin care of, staff very friendly, the store had a lot to offer. They always seem to have something going on during the weekends for all ages. Lots of kids enjoying themselves. The sites are close to each other but not right on top of each other like some places I’ve been.
Only downside is they don’t really want you using the beach so it’s not takin care of. You can use it but it’s not near as nice as it used to be years ago.
Is a nice, quiet campground. It books up fast during holiday seasons.
This campground has a newly updated bath house and 20 sewer sites, along with plenty of other sites near the woods or out in the open to choose from. There's always a list of planned activities from tie dying shirts to early morning putt putt competitions, so that's nice if you need to occupy any children. And the playground and grocery store were nice offerings as well. Also, there's a nearby fort from the 1800's to explore if you have a couple free hours.
This is like no other state park we’ve been to: it’s a full living history museum plus a resort campground. There’s so much history to explore in the museum and fort, plus special events like battle reenactments, frontiersmen skill demos, art shows, charming 1700s Christmas, etc. Pros: museum & fort, pool, boat launch, birding, modern campground facilities, great spot not far from highways 64 & 75 (Lexington). Cons: no hiking or other truly outdoorsy activities (but the living history aspect makes up for it), no sites along the river (a few close to it), campsites are too open and close together (but it’s not awful), there’s some kind of quarry north of the site (so stay as far south as you can). FYI: check the living history museum schedule before you make reservations.
This campground is on the banks of the Kentucky River and, like so many other waterways, the levels are really down due to the drought. It's a nicely wooded campground but the drawback is that it's near an asphalt plant that starts early in the morning and runs until dinner time. The smell and noise are yuck!
We usually visit this park year round. In the summer, the pool is the best in the area. The beach makes great fishing, and there's a nice playground for the little ones. The fort itself is a great learning experience for kids and adults!
RV park had plenty of room, and is well taken care of as well.
