Great family campground

Some of the campsites are a bit crowded, but almost all are in the shade.  We were disappointed that we had to drive several miles to get to the swim beach, but overall it is a very nice campground.

Beautiful views, quiet, and clean

It doesn't have all the amenities like a camp store and, when we were there, there appeared to be no staff- but this could have been due to Covid.

Most campsites have a view of the water. And it was very quiet except for large boats going to and from the lake- which also made canoeing challenging…

Road trip stop

Stayed 3 nights in sites 12 and 13 on our way across the country. Super clean and very well maintained. Just a short Lyft ride into the city.

Great for an Overnight

I only stayed here for a night while I was driving through. I arrived at the campground after the office closed, but they called ahead of time to let me know all the information I needed to find my site and I was able to find it with ease. The bathrooms were well maintained and it was a nice,…

Cute Campground

We camped here because of the easy access to the lake! Very friendly staff and the campground was easy to get around, especially on the golf cart. It was a little tight and traffic can get backed up within the campground when more than a few people are trying to park, but other than that it was…

Best for Mammoth Cave

The campground is cute and less than 15 mins to the Mammoth Cave National Park visitor Center. Nothing fancy, older bathhouse, small pond and large field for kids to explore. Some spots are snug. Owner is great and very helpful!

Peaceful stay on the water

Very nice campground on Cordell Hull Lake. Kayaking, boating, fishing and swimming are possible. Waterside camping available. Cell service is spotty and minimal WiFi is available to check in with family or check the weather. Very peaceful. Had a nice, stress free 3 day weekend.

Keep Moving

I do not recommend this place unless you’re either coming for a one night stay or you work in the area and don’t plan to spend a lot of time there but to sleep. There’s nothing to do there. No picnic tables, no fire pits and not much room between campers. The playground was not something I’d let my…

Clean

Bathrooms were clean and convenient. Sites were a bit dirty from previous campers, and there wasn’t much room to park a car- the host told us to just park in another camp site because you could t park at your site without blocking the road.

Best koa yet!

This KOA is the best I’ve stayed at yet! Easy access from highway, but far enough in that there is no highway noise. Full hook ups and cabins. Bathrooms and laundry are impeccable! Pool is great size and beautiful lawn chairs and pool toys to use. Gravel sites well maintained. Lots of trees.…

Love the views

Baileys Point Campground didn’t disappoint! The sites are spacious with paved or gravel sites available, picnic tables, fire rings and clean restrooms. There are lake view sites and lake front sites. There are inlets where you can tie off your boats. The cell signals are good, we have Verizon! …

Needs some love

The camp ground itself isn't bad. I don't think it's quite up to the usual KOA standards. Bathrooms were centrally located which was fine unless you're tent camping on the outer edge. The shower curtains were moldy and the bathrooms seemed a little run down, but everything functioned well.

Great place

We spent a few days at Wax while heading home. It was quiet, even with all the boat traffic and kids. Lots are gravel and decent size. The area surrounds Lake Nolan, which is an added bonus. The water was warm and calm. It is off the beaten path and you are about 30 min from a grocery store, so…

Beautiful on the water

Don’t expect anyone to greet you at the ranger station. It is unmanned. Sites have your parking pass clipped to the post. Gravel, mostly flat, pads with lots of shade trees. Very quiet. Sits on Lake Nolan, which is huge. Loved paddle boarding in the early morning before the boat traffic got going.…
