I really liked our stay here. Now, having said that, this campground is not for everyone. It has no pool (which we don't use), no activities for kids (we are empty nesters), the owner can be a bit abrasive and, in general, there isn't anything to do at the campground except enjoy the quiet. The owners make no bones about not wanting children in the campground. It is tailored to childless and/or retired campers who value quiet, cleanliness and nice surroundings. If you want "action" or commotion it is just a few miles up the road at the Dells. One trip through the park there made us realize what a fortuitous campground choice we made while visiting the area. My advice; don't camp here if you have children with you but if you don't, you will really like this place. I wish we could have stayed longer. We found things to do within a 50 mile radius that kept us busy and glad we decided to see what this area of the country was like. As for the Dells itself, well, it is a kids paradise and big time tourist trap. We experienced it just once, briefly, during our 5 day stay. Lots to do and see in and around the Dells without riding a go cart, traveling down a water slide or being hawked by a T-shirt salesperson.

KOA expensive! Nice campground with pond and pool. The kids in the campground seemed to really enjoy this campground. Sites were close together and gravel. Small patio areas. Paved roads. Owner is onsite and works hard to improve the campground. Staff is friendly. It is what it is. It is a nice campground, especially for kids but $58 for a campsite? Personally, that is a bit much for me. I'd stay here again in heartbeat for $35, but not what we, and the rest of the campers, paid. If you have kids (which we no longer do) and you can stomach the cost, I am sure they will have a blast.

Expensive. But then again, you expect that from KOA. Nice campground just 20-25 from Louisville and Bardstown. Paved roads gravel sites. Full hookups. Pool was nice and bathhouse/shower areas were very nice and clean. Last three years this campground has won a Presidential KOA award. Nice and helpful staff. We had a pull through site. It was a bit short but it was shaded!!! Here is the deal. This cost is too much for my liking but the wife loves the facilities and look of the campground. Guess who makes decisions in our family?

Date of Stay:

Had a campsite right on the Ohio River which was kind of cool. We watched the barges go by. That is the good. Fair amount of seasonals that pretty much keep to themselves. This place floods about every Spring and this year was worse than normal. They were still recovering. Very sandy sites. Bathhouse was so far away most campers either didn't use it (us) or drove up to it. Not close to anything. Paducah is 30 minutes away and a cool place to be on a Sat. night. Probably wouldn't stay here again but if want to just hang around a campsite and watch the barges or maybe do some fishing, this would be just fine. Quiet.

Date of Stay:

Pretty bare bones campground with super nice and helpful owners who live onsite. Gravel and grass. Bathhouse is somewhat on the "rustic" side but it was usually clean. Close to Mammouth Caves. Other than the caves, not much to do in the area unless your into go carts and zip line. Again, very nice owners and a very fair price (full hookup pullthrough site). It is what it is.

Small, older campground that is well kept and clean. Lots of shade and the lots are wide. Gravel roads and grass sites. Bathrooms were clean. Owner lives on site and is very friendly and helpful. Very quiet park. Not much to do in and around the campground, but if you are looking for peace and quiet, this is a great place.
