Hickory Nut Falls Family Campground, Chimney Rock, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Access is by winding mountain roads and campground itself is very hilly. Some sites are right on the river which is delightful and perfect for a cool dip on a hot day. There is a playground for children, and the campground is close to Chimney Rock State Park and Lake Lure. The owners are so very helpful. We needed a nut for one of our bikes, and the owner drove to town to get one for us. The washers and dryers were great since we had laundry to do. The sites are shady and well-maintained. There are many permanent renters so plan in advance. The park filled while we were there, and many were turned away. We camped at Hickory Nut Falls Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Taylorsville Lake State Park Campground, Taylorsville, Kentucky

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Went to this park expecting to have lake access and use of bike trails but was disappointed in both. Lake is for boats only so bring your own or plan to drive 5 miles to rent one. The bike trails turned out to be narrow horse paths that mountain bikes might be able to negotiate but not my cruiser. Stuck to riding on the main roads and it was OK but not what we expected. The laundry and shower facilities were clean and easily accessible. Everyone there was very pleasant but most sites are not shaded so if you want shade ask for it specifically. There are some kid friendly play grounds. This is primarily for boaters and horses despite what the state web site says so beware before you plan to go here. We camped at Taylorsville Lake State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Optimist Park, Vine Grove, Kentucky

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

This lovely park is a hidden jewel convenient to Ft Knox. Sites are shaded with picnic tables available. The bathroom facilities are clean and new. The park is near a stream and is part of a public recreation complex that hosts baseball, soccer and other community events. There are active railroad tracks bordering the site and trains do roll through at night with horn but it didn't bother us. You pick your site and pay on the honor system at the city hall around the corner from the campground. The city hall has a huge parking lot. While we were here there was a family reunion and they had 40' and 35' Class A rigs that fit fine. There are walking trails and you are close to a gas station and the downtown if you need to walk to get some supplies. A WalMart is 10 minutes away. We camped at Optimist Park in a Motorhome.
