Been going there for the last ten years to work shows at the fairgrounds. The facilities are always filthy with little or no maintenance. This year was the worst. There was no, repeat no, water anywhere in the RV park at the Kentucky Exposition Center?'s RV park with which to re-fill our fresh water tank in the RV. Not only that, but the shower/restrooms at the RV park were such filthy swill holes that just stepping into them made me think I needed to burn the shoes I was wearing before stepping foot back into our RV. No way would I use the facilities. Therefore we were unable to shower for four days. Only able to wipe down with a damp paper towel to freshen up. We got a tad ripe in those four days. To add insult to injury RV parking at the Expo Center costs $50.00 a night!! To further cause aggravation for RV owners trying to stay there when the Expo Center's crews cleared the RV parking lot of snow they pushed the cold, white stuff into mountains over most all of the RV parking spots. I would add that the pork producers, the fish frying folks and the chicken frying folks, all of whom work in the sheds located in the RV lot, had no water either. This meant that they had no way to wash up after using the filthy restrooms and no way to wash pots and pans or grills they were using. I'd be surprised if none of the food patrons at the Expo Center didn't get deathly ill after eating there this last weekend.

Top notch Corps of Engineers park. Paved sites with electric and water. Dump station on the way out is easy to use. The park is really beautiful with miles of trails, a swimming beach, nearby marinas, wonderful wildlife, and friendly folks who run it. Really a super place to stay.

Friendly folks run this place. All the amenities are new and well kept. The fishing lake is well stocked and the ducks are really fun to watch, and they are friendly. The park is close to I-75 and even though it is close it is quiet and restful. Very nice park to stay at.

It is a well laid out, pretty park with a lot of potential. We've stayed here three times in the last six years, every time there has been some serious issues. TV cable that doesn't work, water hookups that are plugged with filth, trash all over the site, piled-up trash in the fire pit, septic drains backed up flooding the sites with sewage. In general the park needs basic maintenance. The folks that run it are friendly and willing to help if you ask, but the trash needs to be picked up and repairs made to broken amenities. Unusual for a KOA to have so many issues.

Simply a beautiful, well maintained state park with miles and miles of hiking/biking trails. Beautiful lake, fall colors are spectacular and in the spring the trees bust out with flowers and more color. Friendly staff goes out of their way to take care of guests. One of my favorite parks to stay at. Over the years I've grown very fond of this park and look forward to every future visit.

Perfectly level concrete pads which is important in Houston where the ground is gumbo clay and it rains a lot. All amenities are kept up well and work perfectly. The park is conveniently located close to downtown and the medical center. Security fencing and an electric gate keep trouble out. The park is immaculately maintained and beautifully landscaped. Real nice BBQ pits are located around the park for guests to use to throw a party. This really is a nice park run by friendly folks who take good care of the guests.

The park looks well kept and neat, but I have no idea how nice it is since the woman who runs the place is so incredibly rude that we haven't stayed there despite trying twice. I'm surprised the place is still in business because I don't see how anyone could put up with this lady's extremely rude attitude.

Beautiful park with miles and miles of trails to hike and bike. Water & electric at the sites. Dump station is easily accessed upon leaving. The pull through sites are tight fits and rigs longer than 30 feet will find them a bit of a squeeze. The park is well maintained and there is a lot to see. Close to Murfreesboro it is easy to head out for a day trip to visit Stones River National Battlefield Park. Don't leave any of your water hoses out at your site though. We did and all our hoses and water filters had walked off while we were gone. We got the stuff back after some detective work.

Incredible park. One of the most amazing places I've ever had the pleasure of staying. Miles and miles of hiking trails, truly incredible history, great museum, thoroughly amazing old graveyard, more stuff to do and see at this park than my wife and I could do in three days. The Mississippi River is a short walk from the park. I look forward to going back for another stay.

A beautiful park with a huge dog pen. Miles of trails to hike, but some of the wooden walkways along the trails need work. Electric and water at the sites, which are fairly level. The dump station is easy to use and accessible on the way out. The park is close to town but quiet.

Superlatives fail me for this park. It has everything going for it. Great people run the place, really friendly and helpful. The location is incredible. Something like 1,000 acres on the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains with miles and miles of hiking trails, amazing wildlife, and sunrises are incredible. The May Museum at the office is one of the world's best. This is one of my very favorite places on earth to visit. The scenery, people, wildlife, and campsites are just wonderful.

This is one of my favorite RV parks to visit. It is far enough away from Hwy. 50 that road noise isn't much of an issue. The sites are clean and well kept. There are plenty of trails to hike inside the park and there some spectacular views of the Royal Gorge from some of the sites. The park itself is quiet, the owner friendly and hard working. My wife and I have stayed here for several days two years in a row and I have been impressed each time by how hard the owner works to make the park a great place to visit. I enjoy the park not just for the trails and the peace and quiet, but for the wildlife. In addition to an occasional elk that wanders through there are a number of species of beautiful birds that enjoy the park's trees and bushes and sing all day long. If you're looking for a quiet, well kept park where you can relax and watch the rock walls of the Royal Gorge change colors as the sun sets, this is your kind of park.

Located in the arid, high desert East of the Rocky Mountains Lake Pueblo is a blue jewel among the dun-colered mesas. The park itself is large, with multiple campgrounds. Some of the sites are close enough to easily walk to the lake for some fishing from the bank without. There are nice, shaded picnic tables at just about every campsite and there are two buildings with washers/dryers at one of the campgrounds. Finding park staff to help with an issue is almost impossible. For campers who drive in without a reservation it is an honor system check-in because there are no rangers to help you out. At the entrance to each of the campgrounds there is a building where campers are to stop and fill out info cards, stuff money in an envelope and then drop said envelope into a designated slot. You put $20.00 in one envelope for camping and $7.00 in another for a day use fee. You are expected to hike or drive up to the empty ranger station each day of your stay to repeat this ritual because they don't allow for more than one day stay on their envelopes. There is only electric at the sites, to dump or get water you have to pack up your RV and drive to the dump/water station. You will have electric only so long as a prairie dog (numerous in the area) doesn't decide to gnaw through one of the buried power cables as happened while we were there. Great place to stay if you love fishing. The campground fills up and gets noisy on weekends and the trails to hike are barren and hot, no shade.

This campground is a treasure. With miles of hiking trails, stunning views of the plains to the East and the Rocky Mountains to the North and West it has a lot going for it. There is a small lake they keep stocked with several species of trout. Fishing from a granite rock on the shore of the lake will provide some memorable moments for any family that loves to fish together. The campground is spacious with a lot of sites to choose from. Campfires are permitted and firewood is available at the office. Wildlife abounds in the RV park. Turkeys run through, rabbits, deer and more can be seen as well. The May Museum of Natural History is at the bottom of the hill where the RV office is located. This museum houses one of the world's most comprehensive insect collections. It has to be seen to be believed. The insects are from all over the world and include specimens of some of the world's most stunningly beautiful butterflies. Between the miles of hiking trails, the peace and quiet, the incredible natural history museum and the park's close proximity to Colorado Springs/Pike's peak and more there is much to like. My wife and I will be back for sure.
