John James Audubon State Park (Closed for 2018), Henderson, Kentucky

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Audubon Park is a great hometown camp ground. It's small, close to home, clean and mostly well maintained. Some sites are unlevel but due to the abundance of trees. Summer activities for kids are many, fishing available at 20+ acre lake (catfish, bass, bluegill) with state license required. Water and electric available at each site with sewer dump station available. Park is usually full on holidays (already has a waiting list for Labor Day). Wish they would limit the number of vehicles during holidays. Bath house is kept clean and well maintained. Avoid site #35 due to dusk-to-dawn light. Play ground for kids is located in center of park and visible from most sites. They were sold out of fire wood but Thornton's is close by with a cord of wood running about $22. Road noise can be bothersome but not a deal breaker. Great place for kids to bring bikes. Pet friendly but bring your clean up supplies. Washer/dryer available at bath house. Major shopping and dining available nearby. Good value for the money and location. We camped at John James Audubon State Park (Closed for 2018) in a Travel Trailer.

Rough River State Resort Park, Falls of Rough, Kentucky

Date of Stay: May, 2010 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

This is a sad review to write. This park is declining so quickly it is unrecognizable from the days we first camped there in 1972. Sites are nearly unusable, gravel pads are not maintained, weeded over and boarder 4x4s are rotted away or gone. Weeds are abundant, hills and inclines are falling into sites, gravel roads are not maintained and ditches are overflowing with debris. Not a campground I would feel safe in due to condition of facilities and lack of "presence" of park ranger or park representative. They have obviously poured plenty of money into the care of the spillway for fishing but campground has long been forgotten. I cannot recommend this location to anyone other than men camping at fishing tournaments. This just breaks my heart but they should plow this under and start over. We camped at Rough River State Resort Park in a Travel Trailer.
