They have recently built a new bath house and it’s awesome. It has rooms that each have a toilet, sink and shower. Total privacy! Nice and clean as well. Big points for this amenity.
We had a new site, 6, totally paved and great view of the conestoga wagons and pastures. Came with a movable fire pit and nice picnic table. I think it’s the best site.
Our main issue was the dump station, horrible layout. What takes us maybe 10 minutes took over 25. Plan ahead or decide to dump elsewhere.
The area around the KOA is a bit suspect. You can see an adult store, pass a confederate store on the way into the KOA and have business that are abandoned . While the KOA cannot prevent these things it’s worth noting for travelers. The KoA is a 4 star, if I factored in the area it would be a 3.
Easy trip down to Mammoth Cave. Very close to Hidden River and Kentucky Down Under.
We love the horse park. First location is wonderful. Literally on the grounds of the gorgeous Kentucky Horse Park and less than 30 minutes to UK’s Campus.
The sites are spacious and fairly flat. Big bonus for state parks. There are lots of mature trees which are great for every season of camping.
All sites are back in only and there are no full hook ups. This wasn’t an issue as there are 2 dump stations with 2 pipes each.
We recommend this to anyone!
We went at the end of September, off peak season. Instantly notice how huge this KOA was. Whole rows of the various types of sites, lots of cabins and housing as well. Lots of kids activities as well.
We stayed at a deluxe pull thru. Very nice, good space between neighbors. Overall good KOA, no issues and we had a great trip.
Things to note: It has a very large seasonal section There are train tracks in front so you will hear the train several times a day. Very little shade (consideration for summer) Close to Cedar Point
KOA staff was very friendly, constantly keeping the park clean and welcoming guest. Very nice. It was a quiet park on Labor Day weekend. Things to know. Big hill to get up to the KOA. Almost all paths are gravel. If it were totally full it would be tight between many spaces. Overall nice campground good location could drive 30-45 for things to do.
We did struggle with what to do in the area. We don’t own ATVs or a boat. Turned out to be a good weekend but do your homework to ensure it meets your needs.
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.
Overall friendly campground. Spaces were smaller but we had room to make ours. We had spot 19 and thought it was one of the best. Has mini golf and some beautiful views from the lodge. Not much to do beyond that.
Stayed 2 weekend nights. Got lucky we had spots 148 and 149. These are shallow with no yard but offer more privacy. Not good for adding tents or really much else other than chairs. Both fire rings were unusable due to location or being filled with garbage. You also can hear road noise.
The good stuff, it’s a pretty area. We enjoyed the boat ramp area where we could sit long the river. The putt putt course was very fun and shaded. Nice to have a friendly camp grocery store. Overall not bad if you want lots to do and don’t mind sites that are close together.
