Date of Stay: May, 2014
Late April, early May stays. Stayed here down/up on a short trip to Mammoth Cave. Very large campground with multiple sections. Stayed both times in the phase 4 section which was very open. Nice grass, no trees, full hook-up's. We choose this section after driving through the first section to the right which seemed very rough. Signs of recent excavation and very uneven grassy areas, by contrast the section we were in was nicely kept. Quite a few annuals were clustered along the the wooded side. Most seemed reasonably well kept. Easy access for our 43' rig. Re-entry into the campground is by a bar coded pass. Be cautioned the reader is extremely low for full size trucks. Staff all seemed friendly and helpful. Camp host in our section was friendly and introduced themselves soon after we set up; as well as, welcomed us back on the second visit. Camp store was currently in remodeling. Propane across the street was extremely expensive @ $39.99 for a 40# tank. Campground has limited propane hours in the am. Pool was not open. Never seen a full size stainless pool before. Facilities looked nice and assuming open later ?n the season. We use this campground as a base camp for visits to a convention in Cincinnati and visits to the Creation Museum. 45 min and 30 min drives respectively. Cell signal for Verizon and ATT were both excellent. Campground WiFi showed up at one bar on devices where we were, as well. Price reflects Thousand Trails zone pass.
Date of Stay: April, 2014
Late April stay. Approximately half full, mostly older folks, good access for longer rigs. We chose A3, which was a back-in site. The back-ins are all angled with no obstructions at the front corners. We found the sites to be extremely narrow at 15-20 feet between sites. Pull-through' also seemed rather tight on width. There are some nice full hookup sites with more privacy clustered near the laundry/bathhouse further in. Staff seemed friendly and helpful. Hours at the check-in office were randomly kept. Posted sign on door advised of "winter hours" and "choose your site, register later". Amenities were old. Mystery yellow rope surrounded playground with no signage. Chain tire swing was broken. All else seemed in working condition so we let our boys play in it. Pool was not functioning. We saw staff working on the surface paint. Assuming it was being prepped for season. Signal for AT&T was almost non-existent. One bar or none. Our Verizon based MiFi had good signal and reasonable speeds which tended to slow down in the evenings as traffic increased. Still we were able to stream video without to much problem. Access to Mammoth Cave is 13 mins or so. There is a incredibly nice bike path that runs along the road, but, alas, no bikes for Mom and Dad. Price reflects Thousand Trails Zone Pass.
