We read the prior reviews and decided this is the place for us since it is just an overnight. The price is right $11 Passport America one-half price. Just off the interstate. Must be close to airport since two planes have taken off since we arrived around 4 p.m. Since then, no air traffic. As a previous poster said, there is no camp host. There was a small area that had envelops and said to put your money in the envelope and drop in slot. I could not find a slot to drop it in. A lady next door told me that the owner had passed away and the new owners were across the street at the gas station. I filled out the pertinent information, i.e., lot number, PA discount price, name and address. I put everything in the envelope and gave it to the lady at the gas station. This place is what it is - a place to spend the night. We are very pleased with it. Great satellite and Verizon air card reception. Just perfect for what we want at a low cost. It is only 30A and no sewer. We came in with empty gray and black tanks, so we have no problems whatsoever.

One of the nicer KOA's we have visited in a long time. Still, it is tired and in need of updating especially for the price (taxes included). We have not paid this much for an RV park in ages. We are no longer members of the KOA; therefore, do not receive the discount. However, we rarely stay at a KOA unless necessary. The employees were very friendly and informative. I believe this is true of all KOAs and this is probably their biggest plus. We specifically asked for a site that we could get satellite TV (but as the last one we stayed at in Little Rock, AR) we had to revert to local stations as the cable did not work and satellite did not either. All the sites are overgrown as with this one, and the trees would not allow us to receive satellite signal.

The $42.00/nightly rate includes taxes, and we are not KOA members. This KOA is OK for an overnight stay or if you come here for a purpose - as we did. The Clinton Presidential Library was our cause for a two night stay. The KOA is like most of the rest; tired looking, overgrown, lots of full-time residents, and very little maintenance. It is actually over-priced for what you get, but we knew this beforehand. The staff are very nice and helpful.

Price is $12.50/night for Escapee's members. Electric additional. Great for O/N. Always some type of activity on-gong. Spaghetti supper last night. All you could eat for $6. Cannot beat that price. Spacious spaces accommodate any size RV.

We stay here twice a year and have always had a good experience. PA discount is $10 total. Hard to beat for FHU/50A/Sewer/Water. We plan our trips to stay here while crossing West Texas. The sky is so clear and a perfect place to view stars without city lights (if you are into star gazing). This is a "no frills" overnight place. Nice little restaurant/gas station next to it, and that is where the check-in and office is. Good long pull-throughs close to I-10. We feel this is the ultimate O/N place for a good night's rest and safe place to stay. We have stayed here at least twice a year since 2004.

The best thing we can say about this park is the people are friendly. The rest, forget it. OK for many, just not our place of choice. Our lot was one street across from the golf course. We had four golf balls hit our MH. One of them broke out a light. The repair was at our expense. This was not reasonable to us. All our rental agent said was that we were responsible - not the people we rented from or "Happy Trails" either. Actually, we came to call it "Happy Hell" as that more accurately describes it to us. We paid $890/mo including electric for a space that was not even a covered lot. When we arrived, we had no "Welcome Package" as the rental agent said would be there plus no "greeter" as we were told would meet us. We had to ask the guard for a map and our check out date on the gate pass was incorrect. It took a week just to straighten out this mess. Will not stay here again and will not recommend it to any of our fellow travelers. The agent we had was not very knowledgeable or friendly. Bad experience all around. Many folks are very content here and we applaud them.

Rate reflects "Good Sam" rate. This park is a real gem in the rough. Just what we have been hoping for in the Central KY area. We come to KY once or twice a year to visit relatives. The other parks are history to us since we found this one through Internet search and "Campground Reviews Website". We were coming from the North and our GPS said to take Exit 136 from I-75. Wrong move. Use their website and take Exit 129. Otherwise, you will be driving on U.S. 25 South for six miles on a crooked two-lane road with overhanging tree limbs. Take Exit 129 (as their website states). You double back under I-75 for approx two miles. You go under the I-75 overpass. It is not marked by height. The overpass is probably 15'+ so you do not have to worry about the height. Campground is very nice and quiet. Did not use laundry or bath but checked them out. Both were impeccable. Laundry has no windows since it doubles as a tornado shelter. Upper streets are buckled - not due to poor construction - but because county made owners put them in prior to the dry spell so they could open the park. Talked to the owners and that is why I know this. We are only here for a week visiting relatives and have no affiliation with park at all. Just great to find a park close to both of our families. We plan to stay here every time we come to KY. One of the biggest pluses is that we have 50 amp, water, and sewer. Priceless. Yes, it needs more work done on it but owners are doing their best to make the park 1st class.

Pretty much a residential, locals park. Rate reflect Passport America (PA) Book, Rate of $17 for 30A. $20 for 50A. Follow directions in the PA Book. Our Garmin told us to take one exit and PA was better route. Did not double-check GPS vs. PA Book. The campground office is in a rather odd place in the back part of the park rather than up front. Was not sure if we could get around, so stopped and walked to the office. You can get around there, but not being familiar with area, chose to walk to office. After reading a previous post about this campground, I asked for a pull-through where I would be the first one to pull-out since we usually get up early. The pull throughs are very nice and long and we had no problem leveling. It is rather odd that the pull throughs can handle two RV's - but, if you are the one on the backside, you would have to wait until your neighbor pulled out before you do. This was a nice quiet place for O/N and the manager was very nice. Biggest drawback for us - low-hanging tree limbs. Seems like these parks cannot keep them trimmed back enough for a big rig.

Very nice RV park for sight-seeing in this vicinity. GPS and Escapee's Book have bad directions. If you come here, ask manager best way to come. Escapees price was $26.70/night. Clean and very quiet park. Every now and then you can hear a train horn in the distance, but it is not very loud - just background noise. You have to drive through some fairly narrow streets from interstate but it is doable. Would definitely stay here again.

$27 night is available for AAA only. No other discounts. We are not AAA members so do not know the discount rate. Previous comments said park was full of transient workers. This comment was made in 2010. There were about a total of ten RV's in park. No kids. No transients or permanents. We were pleasantly surprised. Good place to walk a dog and lots of nice grassy areas. Dust was not a problem. Roads were gravel. Only drawback was that I asked for a site with no trees so that we could obtain satellite service. Had a spot where we could not receive satellite signal due to tree in the way. Hooked up to cable so all was well. Would have given it a 10 but host should have known which sites could obtain cable and sites that could not.

We do not have AAA and that is the only discount available. From the other reviews, we were a bit concerned about this park. We did not have reservations and just drove by to see what it look liked since the Eisenhower Presidential Library is only three blocks away. We were pleasantly surprised. No kids. No transient workers. Only about a total of ten nice RV's in the park. Sites were very level. Great places to walk our dog and MIFI signal is great. The swimming pool appeared to be very well maintained. The only draw-back was that we asked for a site with no trees so that we could get a satellite signal. We could not get a signal due to a tree right next to us. Could have moved, but we were already set up and leveled. My husband even cut some tree branches, but it did not help. They do have cable TV for free. He connected to the cable so that we could watch TV. Recommend that if you stay here, scout it out and make sure you have satellite signal before you rent a spot - if that is on your "must have" list. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Suppose all the transient workers have moved on since it was very quiet.

Read other reviews about this place and thought it would be ok for the price listed ($18/night) just for a place to stay. The review said there were sixteen spaces available. We only saw about eight, and they were permanent occupants. Looked like they had been there for a long, long time. We did not have reservations. One of the permanents came out and told us to go to another campground as there were no more spaces here. Did not look like a bad place for overnight, but was mis-lead by other posts. I would suggest calling this place in advance before you attempt to stay there. Due to the economy and in our travels, it appears that more and more campgrounds are becoming "permanent spaces".

Very nice campground owner. She has sold the park and said a nice young man bought it effective 1 Aug 2011. He has plans to improve it. GPS directions are wrong. You can turn directly into RV park at mm 298 on left side of highway 50w. We stayed here two nights. Do not expect much. You get what you pay for. Walmart close by.

The rate reflected was Good Sam rate plus if you stay 6 nights, you get the 7th night free. We have a nice concrete patio and picnic table here. They used to charge more for the lots with concrete patios but they did away with the extra charge for them. Nice level gravel sites and inside roads are gravel. Great walking trail (3/4 mile) around perimeter of park. The wind does blow at this park, but they give you a handout when you check-in telling you in bold type, "do not leave your awnings out as they get a lot of wind here". Aesthetically pleasing with all the nice Russian Sage, flowers, and trees around. Some sites are already getting some shade from trees that were planted when they opened the park. This is our third time staying at this campground and we would not consider staying anywhere else in the Sante Fe area.

$26.25 (including tax) rate was AAA or AARP. We enjoyed staying at this park. We had absolutely no problem with noise or neighbors. Nice place and manager was very nice. Great, but costly restaurant on premise. Our site (and looks like most) were very level.
