WORST PLACE EVER

This place is a tiny little dump that is not at all maintained by management. Dead trees all over the property, grass not cut or cared for properly, management rude and unfriendly, and bath house is a nightmare!! No wifi for guests like they claim as it doesn't work and didn't work our entire stay!…

Wonderfully beautiful, peaceful, and friendly

This campground is located at the mouth of the Elkhorn Creek and Kentucky River. It is extremely popular among locals who want to sit in an tube float and float down the creek to the Kentucky River, a trip that takes approximately 3 to 4 hours. Note you have to bring your own tube. Nearly all of…

Can’t beat the location for a bourbon experience

Although we agree with the other reviews, this park needs some updating, we enjoyed our time here. The location can’t be beat for exploring this part of the bourbon trail. Our site, #22, worked for us. We did see that some sites had funky and inconvenient water and electric hookups. But the website…

Hiking and History

We stayed during the week following Labor Day. We had no problem getting reservations and the check in process was easy. There is a pool, laundry room, and putt putt golf course. Our site, #39, was fairly level. We needed our entire length of water hose, 100 ft., to connect to the water spigot. The…

Great biking

The horse park has good sites. The inner loops keep you close to the pool, basketball,…. The outer loops have nice backyards. Nice bike riding. You can take a trail all the way to Lexington. They won’t allow you to go the the horse stables while COVID is still around, but there are still plenty…

Basically a gravel parking lot

Great camp hosts but it is more of a stop on your way to a campground.

Fun stay, maybe a one and done

We spent a weekend here with a group. Our campsites backed up to each other so that was great to have extra room for the kids to run around. Sites are spacious, but quite a bit unlevel where we stayed. Some super nice campers helped us. Bring an extra long hose as the water hookups are very far…

Nice campground with awesome hiking

 This place is a neat little campground. The campground is right near a river and there are a bunch of little waterfalls in the area that you can hike to. We stayed in a tent but there’s a bunch of electric sites for RVs as well. Bathrooms weren’t bad and had showers. Sites were large and flat, but…

The perfect weekend get away

This was perfect being only 20 minutes from our home. It was quiet and the bathrooms were super clean. The sites were flat and generous.

Clean and convenient

Clean bathrooms and sites, within easy walking distance to the Kentucky Horse Park. Pay attention to which site you pick- if you’re in c loop, it’s a long walk to the bathroom!

Lots of permanent residents

We stayed here 2 nights as a shake down trip. Bring cash, no credit cards taken. We didn't have enough with us, but the Manager let us set up and Hubby went back home and got some cash. We live less then 15 mins from the park. It was very quiet. Even the local kids were nice and respectful.  We did…

Lake Shelby

Very quiet and pretty little campground. Site can house large RVs and tents. Bathrooms and shower is available. Water and electric as well but can also have dispersed. Site are close together but all seem to be on waterfront.
