Small, wooded site

Very small campground and narrow roads. Many sites were not level and some sites were very short so make sure you review the site description.

Also some had sewer hook ups and others did not.

You did feel like you were in the woods so that was a plus.

Walmart and McDonalds were half a mile away.

Small but beautiful

Great location when in borboun country.

Small but comfortable

If you are a golfer, this is the one because site 7,8 and 9 back up the clubhouse. Beautiful course with rolling hills. If you are not a golfer there nearby activities. You are in Bourbon Heaven, so pick a tour with free tastings.

Need a quiet day, stroll on the many acres of Bernheim Forest. Amazing views and easy walking paths.

There only a handful of sites with sewer but all have water and electricity.

The only bad thing is that they mow very early in the morning.

Beautiful, Wooded and Quiet

Smaller campground that has huge beautiful trees. sites are spaced out which has been really nice. Feels more like camping. Very shaded. Sites are a bit uneven and water and electric is about 40 feet away. Make sure to have levelers to handle 7+ inches. Site 28 seems to be the best. site 30 is also very nice. No activities within campground which we are enjoying this weekend but could be tough if you have kids. The Golf Course is right next door and beautiful. Located near Makers Mark and Jim Beam distilleries. So lots to do around the area and come back to a peaceful, picturesque setting.

Our MiFi has a good signal, like most cell service is a bit lacking.

Great proximity to bourbon trail

Mix of tent and RV pull-thru sites. No privacy between sites. No air movement in September, so prepare for stagnation. Right on the Bourbon Trail just outside Bardstown, KY.

Ideal and convenient

This was a very, very nice campground. I had the ‘primitive’ site for a tent without any utilities. The tent area is an open field where you can just select you own site. There are picnic tables and fire pits scattered around. Even though this site is in town, it seems very tranquil and serene. I felt extremely safe and secure in this location. The town of Bardstown is also all-American hometown at its best. The site was very reasonable, and I intend to return there again when I am passing through. I will make a detour to stay there, in fact.

Great if you like golf

There is a huge golf course that sits within the entire area. Three separate entrances. One for the amphitheater, one for the welcome center and one for camping. Would be better if the golf course wasn’t there but that’s my opinion.

Cute Little Campground

Small but well kept campground. Bathhouse is older but clean. Some sites have views of the golf course. Very friendly staff that works hard to maintain the grounds. Campground is right in the middle of town, but you will still have to drive anywhere you want to go. We toured the My Old KY Home historic house and gardens with our kids (13 & 5) and everyone enjoyed it. We stayed two nights in site 18 and it was tight backing in, even in our 23 foot Airstream, not very private but it is close to the bathhouse. The best site, in my opinion, is site 26. It is more private, has a wide pad and a little "yard" to the side. Site 20 is one to avoid. It's at the corner of the loop, across from a dumpster, right next to the bathroom AND the dump station is practically in the site. It even sits at a lower elevation than the dump station so imagine how nasty it could be on a rainy day. There are a few of pull through sites that would be good options if you are just using it as a stop over.

Works in a pinch

Has tent and RV camping. I tent camped this trip and stopped by for one night as I was passing through. Cost was about $16ish. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Tent sites are at the front of the property with the RVs to the back. Tent campsites are not defined - just an open area for all to share with picnic tables and grills scattered around. Kids playground next to it. Couldn't find the potable water for the tent area. The RVs had electric & water hookups. Showers and bathrooms available. Right next to a side road with a bit of traffic the night I stayed.

An amazing and welcoming State Park

From the time you pull onto the entrance, shared with the golf entrance, you feel right at home. Campsites are a great size, plenty of shade, beautiful trees. Visitor center and gift shop available. Massive golf course for those avid golfers. Beautiful mansion to tour. Amphitheater open during the summer. A great family-friendly place to visit.
