The park is very well maintained and clean. KOAs are always a little pricey, but the programming this weekend was Hawaiian weekend and my boys got to learn to hula dance and there were appetizers and free water/capri suns. It was really cute and the staff was very friendly. Back-in spaces seemed to have more room. Our pull-through was very convenient and easy to park/level but was narrow. Our boys rented the banana bikes and had a great time. There was a lot of room to ride them on the paved roads in the campground. The jumping pillow was great but the boys got pretty dirty. It had been raining a lot so that's probably why. I ran both mornings...the campground is pretty big so the outer loop, including the tent lane, is 1.5 miles. There are also nature trails, but it had been raining so I didn't chance it. Pool is open 9am to 9pm and was very clean and warm. Overall, we had a really great weekend.

I love this campground! The sites are level, it's right by the lake and it's absolutely beautiful! Not to mention full hookups at a state park! The closest site to the water is 18, second closest is 20.

This is a really beautiful place. We stayed on site 15 which was very nice, but beware, we had to buy an additional 20 ft long sewer hose to reach the sewer hookup as it was at the front of the site by the road. As the site slanted a bit downhill from the hookup, I am sure you can imagine the rest. It was tough. I didn't see this issue on any of the other sites. The back-in sites are very well shaded. Great big loops for walking in the evenings. Each site has a trashcan mounted on a pole with a bag which is changed out each morning by the campground staff. The downside of Pipestem Resort is that as a camper, you pay for everything. Pool is $3, mini golf is $4 each, disc golf is $3 each. The remote control tracks (one paved, one dirt with jumps!) is free. Overall we had a great time. The pool is pretty cold, so get ready :) The sewer issue is why I am giving it a 9. Otherwise, a 10.

We love this park and come back every year over our boys' spring break. They love the campground more than Mammoth Cave. :) Lots of activities! Very clean! Nice sites!
