Nice find!

This was our first time at this campground. It’s a beautiful find. Small with only 15 sites but they are all concrete level pads. Easy access to the River. Absolutely beautiful mornings with the fog over the water to look at while you sip your coffee. The sites are spaced well apart. No bad…

Good amenities, could use better maintainence

We enjoyed the amenities that came with our stay. There was a late night check in mishap (no one answered, and we were left wandering around to look for space) they did offer us 1/2 off the first night. The lagoon was fun, and we enjoyed it, could use a lil underside cleaning and inflation…

Quiet, comfortable site

We stayed for 2 nights and had a very quiet, comfortable stay. You can see the lake through the trees, and there's a trail down to the shore off the back of the site - looked like a great spot to launch a small canoe of you don't mind hauling it back up the hill afterward. We tent camp and the site…

Great Lake getaway

With all the parking lot style RV parks popping up these days, it’s nice to find these older parks around from days when people liked trees and breathing room. Stayed in the full hookup sites of Dogwood Loop. Some sites are hard to back into and require much work to get level, but they are well…

Wouldn’t stay here again

Was disappointed in this campground. Put us in a site next to cabins and apartments and full time campers. Also things look a little worn.

Plenty of water access!

The lake is just down the road from our campsite and there is a trailhead bathroom right at the boat ramp!

The campsite itself is pretty enclosed, but there is no fire pit or electrical access. It’s pretty simple and honestly it’s a really good set up! The campsite was small and perfect for just…

Great spot!

Super easy to walk in. Ten dollar fee to camp. The place was empty on the Thursday afternoon we came in. Saw lots of deer right on Kentucky Lake, as well as a family of trash pandas. The sites were very dirty when we arrived (baby diapers and wipes scattered everywhere - eww), but we cleaned it up…

Nice quite primitive camping

Mostly flat near the water and lots of sites to camp. We really enjoyed our spot in the shade on a hot summer weekend.

Simple Shaded Hideaway

A first come first serve spot. Need to have your camper in the actual spot before paying(different). Had to hook our 38ft 5er up to a 30amp first night even barley using anything the breaker kept tripping. We moved to 50amp the next day and all is lovely. The two sites we chose were large enough to…

Just ok

The Pennyrile state park campground is in need of a makeover. I didn’t see any sites suitable for a tent. I was car camping and slept in my SUV so no tent but I’m glad I didn’t have to rely on the sites being level. There were roots and rocks on all the sites. It is quite and relaxing. Electric and…

We love this campground

We visit this campground every year. There are about 45 sites. Camper sites have electric and water. There are tent sites also. There are about 15 waterfront sites, a playground, beach, boat ramp, and small bath house. They can accommodate all sizes of campers. All sites have picnic tables and fire…

Crowded

Hillman ferry is a little crowded for my liking and the sites are anything but level. Although the trees were pretty, this site doesn’t provide much to the eyes. We did enjoy a night on Grand River and had a great dinner at the tavern. I’m sure if we spent some more time at this campground we would…
