    Welcome to My Old Kentucky Home State Park Campground, nestled near the charming town of Bardstown, KY. This spot is a hidden gem, especially for those looking to explore the bourbon trail. The campground is small but cozy, making it a great place to unwind after a day of distillery tours.

    The campground offers electric and water hookups, though you might need some extra extension cords as the hookups can be a bit far from the sites. It's a good idea to bring plenty of blocks to level your RV, as the terrain isn't the flattest. Pets are welcome, so feel free to bring your furry friends along for the adventure.

    One of the standout features here is the friendly atmosphere. Visitors often mention the welcoming staff and neighbors, which adds to the overall pleasant experience. The campground is also big rig friendly, and there's a sanitary dump station available for your convenience.

    For those who enjoy a bit of history and culture, the campground is right next to the historic My Old Kentucky Home, which offers tours. Plus, there's a golf course on-site if you fancy a round or two. If you're traveling with kids, they'll love the playground nearby.

    While the sites are a bit close together, the location more than makes up for it. You're just a stone's throw away from Bardstown, where you can explore local breweries, shops, and more. Don't miss out on the local donuts at Hadorn's Bakery—it's a must-visit!

    In summary, My Old Kentucky Home State Park Campground is a great base for exploring the bourbon trail and enjoying the local culture. Just come prepared with a few extra supplies, and you'll have a fantastic stay.

    Jefferson Memorial Forest features a campground for tent camping and can accommodate both families and groups.

      Deam Lake State Recreation Area is a solid spot for camping, especially if you're into a mix of activities and don't mind a bit of rustic charm. The campground offers a variety of amenities like electric hookups, drinking water, and showers, making it a comfortable place to set up camp. Pets are welcome, so feel free to bring your furry friends along.

      The lake itself is a highlight, perfect for fishing, kayaking, and swimming. Just be prepared for some crowds on the weekends. The trails around here are pretty decent too, with the Knobstone Trail starting right at the park. It's a 60-mile backpacking trail, but there are shorter, more rugged trails if you're not up for a long haul. The Lake Vista Trail, for instance, is a challenging 1.6-mile hike with some steep inclines.

      The campground is near Borden, Indiana, so if you need to stock up on supplies or grab a bite, Sellersburg is just a short drive away with restaurants and grocery stores. The sites are generally well-kept, though some can be a bit uneven or have a steep incline. If you're particular about your spot, it's a good idea to call the park office directly.

      One thing to note is that the bathrooms and showers are hit or miss. Some visitors have found them clean enough, while others think they could use a bit more attention. But hey, it's all part of the camping experience, right? Overall, Deam Lake offers a good mix of nature and convenience, making it a worthwhile destination for a weekend getaway.
