This is a great family friendly campground. There was so much to do within walking distance. Lots of activities run by the campground (clogging was our favorite), a pool, Fort Boonesborough, a beach along the river, and geocaching. Even though every site was taken when we were there it was very quiet and well controlled. Most of the staff were very friendly, especially the ones working in the store. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We normally stay at another park on our way north but thought we'd try something new this trip. We weren't disappointed. However, the site we had was a little smaller than it should have been for our 33' motorhome (it stated a larger coach should fit). We backed as far as we could and yet have our jacks resting on the asphalt. That left not much room for our tow car. The electric was close but the water spigot, shared by two sites, was quite far away. No problem-we used our tank water. There was quite a lot of space between sites and the grounds were very well maintained. We visited the Fort while here-next to the campground. It would be a mistake not to! This reconstructed fort (in the 1970's) consisted of many rustic cabins arranged in a square. Many of the cabins were "occupied" by "1800s residents" displaying period clothing. They demonstrated yarn spinning, candle making, deed preparations, blacksmithing, woodworking, etc., all done as it was during Dan's period. The docents were very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. We highly recommend visiting here. There are many other historical places to visit close by but we were limited by time. We WILL visit here again. Thanks Kentucky, for a great state park! We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful state park, make no mistake about that. The forest is dense, in fact so dense that we could not get DirecTV from our spot. Our crank up antenna, however, was able to capture enough local channels to satisfy us. Our Verizon cell phone and broadband Internet connection was great. The park is pretty much dated with mostly asphalt pads that are short and narrow for larger RVs, and your tow vehicle has to be parked on the adjacent grass. Our spot #4 was level enough to make leveling our motorhome a breeze. Our space was on the road that leads to the park entrance and traffic past our motorhome was speedy and noisy at times. Speaking of noise, the traffic on the nearby highway is noisy, and the close-by park sewage treatment plant is very noisy; it runs all of the time. The electric and sewage hookups are adequate, but the water hookup is far enough away to require our 50 ft water hose. As I walked around the park, I noticed that a couple of RVs had to use at least 100 ft of hose to reach their water hookup. There are lots of activities in the park and lots to see and do in the area. I am not sure we would return to this park again with the high price of staying here not reflected in the park quality. We camped here in a Motorhome.
