The campsites that are close to the lake are pretty unlevel (we were told they will be fixed this upcoming winter). Some sites have decks which is pretty cool. You can see the lake, but have to drive to a nearby ramp to put your boat in the water. The campground was clean. The bath house is older, but fairly clean.
I’m 45, and I loved this campground when I was a girl. They have a small, but good playground for the kids, and excellent activities either at the campground or the resort, about a mile away. The spots are great too. There are some that the person next door is right on top of you.
The real problem, is the bath house. It’s very small and old. It was better when the women’s side was on the opposite end, but there were complaints about only 2 showers, so they switched them. Now the showers are so small (and nasty) I don’t like being in them.
Very friendly staff, and it is very peaceful when you go after or before the holidays. The sites with the decks have amazing views of Kentucky Lake, and there is a trail just south east of the camping area that leads down to the water for easy access for canoes or kayaks. The campgrounds are mowed very well too!
Located near a small touristy town, Kenlake State Park is a Resort state park, affording all the luxury of full hookups as well as more primitive campsites. Offering a boat dock, activity areas,plenty of shaded areas, hiking trails, along with all the amenities expected at a resort, Kenlake really sports more of a Glamping attitude than a camping attitude.
More for the uppity crowd, not into roughing it while camping :) Nice well kept resort type area. Hot August Blues is one of the festivals held here that usually draws a crowd. Water sports galore and plenty else to do in the area. Staff friendly and knowledgable, facilities nice.
Golf course, marina, and sports facilities make this a resort more than a park. Personal preference is for a site with more nature explore, but this is a very nice and well-kept park that does what it aims to do very well. The park across the river, Land Between the Lakes, is exceptional for hiking trails and nature.
