While this is a pretty park with grass sites, paved roads and conveniently located just 6 miles from I-75, the staff we encountered needs improvement. On checking-in, the young gal at the gate was too engrossed in a personal phone call to provide us with all of the materials we were supposed to receive. Another stopped by our site and to give us a message and, instead of knocking on our door, pounded on it. Also, their "people skills" need a vast improvement! Further, we had reserved a site with sewer facilities but there was none on site 161. Traveling through the campground can be an adventure as too many people, with and without campers in tow, drive way too fast while kids on bikes and skateboards (not one was wearing a helmet) and others on foot seem oblivious to vehicle traffic. Further, it is annoying to have kids wandering and biking through our site. All of these issues are resolvable with better management oversight. If staying in sites 1-9 or 160 or 161, a generator for the dump station can be noisy at night. We camped here in a Motorhome.

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.
