Stayed here for 5 nights while attending an equestrian event at the Kentucky Horse Park. The staff at the park are really helpful & friendly. We had a little mishap with our RV (our fault, not theirs), and the staff was nice to try to help us sort it out. The sites are gravel and most are not level, but not too bad. There is all manner of leveling going on! There seem to be some full-time residents. The ones next to us were friendly.
The park is well-maintained. The grass is mowed regularly and everything looks neat and tidy.
The park has A LOT of capacity. The spaces are very close together. There is not much space for parking your tow vehicle.
A nice park to spend the night after longs days touring around the area.
We stayed at this campground in late July 2017. The sites are first come first serve. We got lucky and snagged a great site for our 41' 5th wheel just as someone was getting ready to leave. The campground was totally full. There is water and electric only. But, there is a pump truck you can contract with to pump your tanks as needed. We have only planned to stay for 2 days, but because the setting was so nice, we stayed for 7 nights! Definitely one of our favorite camping experiences. Lake Superior feels like an ocean.
We will definitely try to make it back one day!
I just visited the park for the first time since the renovations have been completed. The park was closed for three months, re-opening in December 2018. Many people consider Caddo State Park to be the nicest park in the system.
It's really nice. There a some sites directly on the water. There are also really nice full hookup sites for RV's that are pull-through.
Local news story on the renovations:
We have spent six weeks at this park for the last 6 years. We attend a horse show circuit near by. It is the creme de la creme of RV parks. The sites are individually owned (and leased out) and many of the owners have made their lots very nice. The park is limited to Class A, Fifth Wheels and Class C only. This park is dominated by big, very nice class A's.
We have a 5th wheel and have appreciated the amenities very much. Great wifi, curbside garbage pickup, trails, dog park, and many others. You are limited to 2 dogs, and they are very strict about leashes and picking up poop. But, that keeps the place looking nice.
We enjoy it very much and it is so close to the horse show, it cannot be beat. Because they are such a popular place to stay during the show (July - mid August), they sites book up a year in advance.
We stayed at Petit Jean State Park for the first time over Easter weekend. Even though the park was booked to capacity, it is so well laid out that it was really nice to be there.. The first night we were in loop we were in loop D. Unfortunately, the space was too small for our fifth wheel. So when I spoke to the visitor Center in the morning, they were able to put us in the highly desirable loop A. We ended up in site #30. It had a beautiful view of the lake. It's was also a plus to have full hookups including 50 amp service and sewer. So unusual for a state park.
The during the days before we arrived, the area was hit by torrential rains. The weather cleared and I hiked down to the Cedar Falls trail to see the falls. The video is of the roaring falls. There is not typically so much flow. We were lucky!
We spent most of our days hiking the many trails the park is known for. It was at peak Dogwood season, so the understory of the Forest was beautiful!
We will definitely camp there again!
