Big Bone Lick State Park, Union, Kentucky

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

we enjoyed our stay at big bone lick , with about 60 sites it is a quiet out-of-the-way camphround, but still minutes away from the Florence Kentucky area with shops, a mall, restaurants galore. It appeared that the majority of the sites are a bit unlevel but not so much that it could not be corrected. Electric and water were an easy reach . Campground does have a pool and two large playgrounds, The bison herd was interesting but the park museum is small. We enjoyed our stay . We camped at Big Bone Lick State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Fort Boonesborough State Park, Richmond, Kentucky

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed at Boonesboro State Park for five days during the week. Overall I enjoyed staying at the park. Sites in the park itself were very clean campground store was very adequate with everything you would need. Both Winchester Kentucky and Richmond Kentucky are within a 10-15 minute drive. Sites are level, Water and electric were in the easy reach but on some sites an extra hose would be needed. I was told by the campground host that the park is very crowded on the weekends. One unsightly part about the park is that around the full hook up sites there is a large sewage processing building that looks in bad shape. Very close to a major roadway but the road noise was not a problem for me. We camped at Fort Boonesborough State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed one night at the campground. Very new campground that is owned by the Indigo Sky Casino. Hook ups and water looked new. Would stay here again. We camped at Whispering Woods RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Joplin KOA, Joplin, Missouri

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

I stayed at the Joplin KOA for 2 nights. I would consider this park to be a decent but expensive stop over point, but I would not want to stay at this campground for a long period of time. The campground buildings are showing their age, very close to a truck stop and around 200 yard from the interstate. Not an ideal set up for camping but it did work out for the short time I needed to stay.

(Lot spacing was nearby with sunny/open exposure. Site surface was gravel featuring a picnic table.) We camped at Joplin KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Carter Caves State Resort Park, Olive Hill, Kentucky

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our second time at Carter Caves State Park. I can say that we had a great time. There is a multitude of things to do they have a large number of hiking trails, two cave tours and canoeing. They do have full hook up sites available but because they back up next to one of the campground roads we did not stay at one, our site did have water and electric. Pad was large. As with most state parks it is showing it's age. The site next to ours the electric did not work. Carter caves in in a remote area do not expect for there to be a lot of stores or shops in the county. We camped at Carter Caves State Resort Park in a Travel Trailer.

Natural Bridge State Resort Park - Middle Fork Campground, Slade, Kentucky

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

I would highly recommend this campground. The state of Kentucky has always impressed me with there facilities and this is no exception. This park is clean and small, we have a 20foot RV so we have no problems. If you have a big rig, just make sure you get a pull through spot. There is plenty outdoor activities around the area. We had a quiet peaceful week at this campground. We camped at Natural Bridge State Resort Park - Middle Fork Campground in a Motorhome.

Kentucky Horse Park Campground, Lexington, Kentucky

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a difficult park to rate and the wife and I wanted to like to park for one it is close to our home, has a lot of attractions, and is very close to Lexington, Ky. If you are looking for the “camping” experience this is not the place to go but to give it the benefit of the doubt I will start with the positives, The park is clean and well maintained, staff was friendly, location to events/attractions are nice. OK now for how we feel as campers. This is a very large park with over 250 sites and they really pack you in. The sites are very close together, lucky we did stay on the outer loop; at least no one was behind us. If you do stay on the inner loop you will have campers on all sides. Most State parks In Kentucky are quiet and peaceful but you won’t find that here due to the number of sites. For some reason most of the campers here bring golf carts, dirt bikes, mopeds, and they drive around the loop nonstop. We are talking both drinking adults as well as small children all hours of the day and night. At times it got a bit dangerous. If you’re ready to gas up your golf cart and be close to 200 campers this is the place for you. As for my family, we are planning on going someplace a bit quieter and laid back. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Pike Lake State Park, Bainbridge, Ohio

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground has a lot of potential. It is in a very quiet area of Pike Lake Sate Park. Sites are clean and level. Pike lake is usually beautiful with swimming and fishing but during 2014 the lake had been drained. The state had heavy equipment sitting near the campground with most of the ground torn up. Before you go, call ahead to see if they have completed the work on the lake. We camped at Pike Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Blue Licks State Park, Carlisle, Kentucky

Date of Stay: May, 2014 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

The wife and I really enjoy Bluelicks Campground. It’s a quiet low key campground. Staff is very nice and friendly. Campground has always been clean. Check before you go as some sites are not as level as others. Not much to do in the area for shopping or sightseeing but the park does have a museum, pool, Put-Put golf and trails. We camped at Blue Licks State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A. J. Jolly Park and Campground, Alexandria, Kentucky

Date of Stay: May, 2014 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our first trip in our RV. This park is very poor. The park is not clean, They have 26 "Improved electric" sites available. The sites are very small - almost too small for a pop-up camper. They are basically small uneven pads on a hill close to the lake. Would be good for a tent but not for any type of camper. The park is gate controlled and if you have visitors they must pay for the vehicle to be on the grounds. There was a boat race on the lake the weekend that we camped. It was very loud and could be dangerous. I made reservations but was not notified of this high speed boat race. The boats started very early and went on into the evening. Park was staffed with what appeared to be high school kids that did not care. We camped at A. J. Jolly Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.
