Date of Stay: June, 2013
We arrived at the campground on Wednesday June 5th at around 4pm for the CMA Music Festival weekend. I booked this site back in December and I knew the campground would probably be fully booked. I booked a back in site with full hook-ups including cable tv (30 amps). Upon arrival, I was greeted by a very friendly guest representative. Upon giving my name, I was told that my site would not be available due to construction in the campground. The clerk informed me she would try to find me another site. I was told all that was available was a site with no cable and that my tow vehicle may not fit due to it being a shorter site than I had reserved. I was also told, "There also was a water main break sir, so that water is not working and we dont know when it will come back on." I was then asked "would that be ok?" Knowing nothing else in the entire area would be available, I had no choice. I asked if I was going to receive anything for this inconvenience and I was told I would get a 25% discount. Upon arrival to the site, I was able to fit my 34 foot camper and extended cab truck on the site with approximately 1 foot of space to play with. The water came on approximately 1 hour after my arrival and worked fine the rest of the weekend. The power tripped on my pedestal 7 times during my 5 day stay. One time the whole section I was staying in was out of power. I called the office and they had the problem fixed in approximately 15 minutes. I would assume this was occurring due to the fact that many rvs including the rv that was hooked into the pedestal as mine, were 50 amp plugs using an adapter because they weren't placed on the sites that they had reserved either. They were having to use 30 amp plug ins. The area we were in wasn't made to be using that much power. This campground had a great location. It was easy to get on and off the highway. It has many great restaurants close by. There were two other campgrounds right next store they may have been better options. We were able to still have a very enjoyable vacation but for as much as these campsites cost, they should provide everything that is stated when reserving. I also felt if my site was under construction, I should have received a phone call to advise me of such so that I could have made other arrangements.

Price reflects a "premium" (up close to the lake) back in site price for full hookups. Campground has great access to highway 370 and close to highway 70. There are plenty of restaurants and malls and things to do if you are not there just to camp. Check in station is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with a small "store" selling items. Beer, soda water and ice were also sold on site. You can rent bikes, canoes,and paddle boats. Fishing is allowed all day and night if camping and there is a boat ramp on the opposite side of the lake. There were also about 4 miles of paved bike trails to bike or walk on. Sites were level made of a broken up pavement material. There were a few paved sites, but I think they were for handicapped only. Security officers, along with Park Rangers, were around all the time and would answer any questions or needs that you may have. Park is in the beginning stages but really shows a lot of potential to be a top notch park in the area.

Owners were very nice and personable! Very close to the town of Bowling Green. We stayed on a pull-through site which had plenty of room. The water, sewer, and electric worked great. The cable TV selections were a bit limited. It is right off the highway which is good and bad. Very easy access to and from but there is a lot of highway noise. Also, it was a very nice weekend and would have loved to have the windows open but there is a neighbor to the campground that has a rooster and turkeys that do not stop making noise. It may have been the time of year or something, but they were over the top. There is a group fire pit with wood provided, but each site does not have a fire pit. So hopefully you like your neighbors if you want to have a fire.
