We arrived mid-week and the campground was nearly empty - only 4 other sites were filled. Our site F-26 was a pull-through at the end of the campground peninsula. Only electric hookups but water spigot was next to our site. We were on the water with easy access to the lake to launch our kayak. Our site was not level - we had to put blocks under the tires to get level. The staff are questionable - they didn't seem to know the answers to any questions we asked. The campground was about 75% full over the weekend - mainly tents. The folks who came into F27 next to us pitched their tent very close to our fire ring but that was the closest level spot to their angled driveway. Ruined our view of the lake. There was a guy fishing near us wearing a holster and gun - kinda scary. I quess it is legal in IN. We stayed 5 nights and would stay here again. - DKL1219

Beautiful, treed sites. There are a few 50 amp sites, and a few sites barely suitable for big rigs. Most of the sites are short and not level enough for a motorhome. The campground loop is a dead end and we had to unhook the toad to go back. You'll do well keeping your interaction with "management" to a minimum. We called 3 hrs ahead and were told sites are first come first served. Not true. On arrival we were charged $7 to find a site, but I waited 10 min in the rain while the ranger marked a map with a black pen to show sites that had been reserved that day and told me that these were reserved. That map was the only one in existence and she suggested I take a photo with my cell phone so I would not take a reserved site. I did so, but the sites are poorly marked. BTW, they could not spare a map for me to take. Anyway, that process did not work for me and we opted for Walmart. At the exit, the ranger had to call a supervisor in order to get permission to refund the $7 I had paid to enter. Do not enter the park when it is raining, you have to stand outside, under the dripping roof eave while waiting for the ranger to mark up the map that shows reserved sites. She had no clue as to which sites were pull-throughs and which were long enough in order to take a 38' motorhome. - rebane

Very nice park near Fuzzy Zoeller's Covered Bridge GC. We reserved a 50 amp site. There are only a few. We were there mid-week and there were plenty of 30 amp sites to choose from too. There are a few pull thrus also. Shower rooms were very good. Pleasant shaded back in sites are in separate sections for horse campers and regular folks. Good looking beach in the park. I think they get lots of day traffic there. We'll stay again. - exceltraveler

The park is not a resort. They do not claim it to be and is essentially an unpaved section of land that has trees and parking spots somewhat close together, but not as bad as some parks that are on less property. Access to our parking spot was good (space #6, pull through), and was a great stop for an overnight stay and a visit to Louisville. Power and water were fine. Plenty of shopping (as in huge) nearby with a Walmart just about in the park backyard on the south side. The office staff was great/accomodating and even provided a discount that wasn't asked for. I believe the age of the motorhome/trailer is a guideline, as it appears they just don't want deteriorated property that would cause problems. My bus conversion is 40+ years old, but it doesn't have a deteriorated appearance. I would return to the park. - wolffden

The park hosts were very nice. Old park too close to other campers. Could not park next to my trailer. Stepping out my door requires going over another site's dump and water connections as they were under my awning. Muddy roads, Internet was a joke if it worked, bathrooms were clean but falling apart. The best thing was the close shopping and restaurants and that I do not have to return. I would rather park in the woods at a NPS or state park and provide my own amenities. - Claybuster

We have stayed at this campground many times over the last 10 years. We knew we were staying in a parking lot surrounded by a little grass and some trees, but it was close to friends and family. Now we are no longer allowed to stay here because our MH is over 10 years old. This is not an RV resort - it is a parking lot for RV's. Lot spacing is very close with some shade. Site surfaces are gravel. - Peri

This is a mobile home park that is converting some spaces to RV. The site conversions are not exactly RV friendly. Narrow concrete strips for the wheels, the jacks are on soft ground and the sewer is located under the RV. The streets have many speed bumps, many of the remaining mobiles homes should be removed and it is very noisy. There is constant noise from I-65, train horns several times a day and night, and the occasional plane traffic; not a peaceful location. We stayed here for 3 months while working for Amazon; the cost of the site was paid for by Amazon. This may develop into an acceptable RV park in a few years but it will always be noisy. The park is on the northern outskirts of Clarksville so shopping and other services are a few miles away.
The sites are level with broken concrete patios and grass areas. No tables or fire rings. 50 amp electrical.
The water is good quality city service but use a filter. The pressure fluctuates, especially in the morning.
There is no park provided cable or wifi. Service may be obtained from Time Warner. Typical OTA channels.
There is no laundry, pool, showers, park activities, etc. The staff is helpful, when asked, but otherwise they are rarely seen.
A mailbox can be purchased from USPS. UPS and FedEx deliver here, but have difficulties locating Lakeview Dr.
We will probably not be stay again as we have no desire to work for Jeffersonville Amazon (SDF8) again. - Wiyndog

We stayed here in October 2015. It is a lovely park with roughly 75 campsites. Most have water and electric; about 14 are primitive and are in a separate section. The sites are of varying lengths; the web site will tell you the size of each site. Eleven sites are over 60 feet, some of them are pull through. We had 50 amp service at our site; I can not say for all sites. It is about 25 minutes or less north of Corydon, Indiana, and near the Indiana Caves and French Lick. The lake has boats for rent, a paved walking, and plenty of squirrels, ducks, and geese to watch while relaxing. The sites were paved, but a little pitched. Bring a couple of leveling boards and you will be fine. We payed $25 for Sunday and $15 for the week days. We enjoyed this campground very much. - jwc47031

Very nice park with lots of shade in the campground. There is a nice fishing lake with a beach for swimmers. There is a nice walking/biking path around the lake which we enjoyed. Our site was a little unlevel (#53), but we rode around the campground and found a few others we would pick when we return. - Donna Jo

This is a great little county park/campground. Most of the sites are will shaded and seemed to be fairly level. Small lake with a beach and paved walking/jogging path. Very nice 18 hole disc golf course. The campground seemed to be very well maintained. The electric and water hookups were modern and in excellent condition. The check-in staff were friendly and helpful. - Daryn

This is a beautiful park! We stayed here for two nights as part of a long road trip, and used it as a base to explore Louisville, ~30 minutes away. The campsites are large, with a paved area for your rig, and nice grassy area with picnic table and fire ring.
There were very few other campers here during our stay, and the park staff seems to space everyone out throughout the park. We had no immediate neighbors.
The bathrooms were immaculate, and hot showers were free.
The state park is mostly geared toward hiking and boating. There are about 7 trails, one of which is accessible from the campground, and a boat launch to the Ohio River. Lots of wildlife in the park...we saw low of rabbits, plus deer and turkey. - beccaf1970

Really nice for a state park. Full hook ups. Like most state parks, they use that stupid reservation system that makes all sites seem equal, when they are not. We were in 157, which I highly recommend for 45 ft. Motorhome. This site did not have alot of shade, but we picked it for that reason. We needed our satellite to work well! Not alot in the immediate area, but Walmart not too far away. Another reviewer suggested site 159, but it was really short. Even though it is July, there was hardly anyone here! - Tbillingsley

Spacious, well maintained sites with level pads and conveniently located hookups. Well off the main road so things are nice and quiet. No issues with getting a DirecTV signal from our site. Wireless wasn't offered by the park but our Verizon signal was strong and steady for both voice and data.
The rules state one vehicle per site and, boy, they aren't kidding about it. I witnessed the security patrols ask two different families to move their extra vehicles, which was appreciated.
One thing to note if you happen to be coming in later in the evening: Be mindful of the signs directing you to the campground area as the site map is just that - a site map only. We came in at dusk, not knowing that and drove right past the campground area as the signs are tastefully small. Once you get past the turn for the campground the road gets narrower and uncomfortably winding so pay attention!
If you're coming in from Louisville, it might be better to head up past the I-265 exit and get off at Exit 9 on I-65. There are newly installed roundabouts at the Port of Indiana exit on I-265 headed towards the campground that were somewhat interesting in a 35' rig with toad. - PirateMonkey

Wow, is this place tight! With my arms outstretched I could easily touch our rig and our neighbor's slide-out. There's not much room for towed vehicles, so most stick out into the road. So, with obstacles like trees, RVs, toads, and really tight turns, negotiating this place is a white-knuckle adventure in a big rig with a toad. But we did it without kissing anything, my husband yelling yahoo with each successful turn with inches to spare & me with breath held gripping the arm rests. So be forewarned--take your time & a deep breath & you'll (probably) be fine!
Yep, as others have said, this is a parking lot with amenities, and you'll pay well for the privilege of having them. Even with our KOA discount, it's about 25% higher than the average RV park rate we've seen throughout the Midwest.
Fortunately, the trains that rumble through next to the park (close enough to feel the rig shake) were quiet after about 8pm, and the construction noise on the roads above didn't start until about 8am (Sunday morning). Speaking of construction, Louisville is a cone-zone nightmare with confusing signage. Avoid rush hour!!!
On the positive side, the park is clean & seems well-managed. Staff was friendly, the store well-stocked. We filled up with propane for less than $3 per gallon. The wifi was good. We didn't use the cable, but had at least a dozen stations OTA. Water pressure was very strong, so use a regulator. - RockyMountainMama

The sites are ridiculously close to each other. Really, there should be 2 sites per RV or camper. You couldn't put your awning out. I would not stay here again. The staff though was very pleasant and they did have a gas station there. - Dkkirkland

This is not a trailer park! This is a rest stop with hook-ups! We were so close together that I thought we were going to have to ask others move so we could back in. All pavement, very small space, not even enough room for our tow vehicle. Won't stay here again. The bathrooms are locked to keep the homeless out and we had to pay a $2.00 deposit to get a key! That made it hard for all of us to take showers at the same time. Did I mention the trains? Right up the embankment a few feet away from our heads while we slept! No no Metro! - LittleChilds

We stopped at this park as an overnight stop. We were pleased with the park. Staff was very friendly and helpful, restrooms and pool were clean, grounds were well maintained, and sites were pretty level. Very relaxed atmosphere in the park. Also, if you are playing Pokemon Go, there is a Pokestop on site. - D20Nomads

Nice quiet park on the Sunday night we stayed. Narrow, short, pull through sites for travelers. Well stocked store and very helpful staff. Several ponds on site, with fishing allowed. About 5 miles west of I-65. - Teacher's Pet

Clean park with lots of semi perm campers, it was Saturday and as such the campground was crowded. Sites are a bit close, SWE all worked fine. Bathrooms are clean and in good repair. We have used this campground in the past as good stopping off point when heading South. - ANDYO1

Derby Park is a HUGE flea market with a lot of space for the KENTUCKY DERBY visitors that are parking RV's or Tent camping for DERBY WEEK. We had a great time in 2010 the park has a Flea Market and Entertainment Venue that has 2 bars inside and local and national bands play throughout the year. - MagicDonnie

This is just a parking lot of a somewhat shabby fleamarket. We camped here as it was close to Churchill Downs and the Louisville Slugger Museum and there are few options nearby. There were electric hookups, no water. Bathrooms were old and not very clean. Area is dicey- they do have locked gates and security staff drove through every hour. We had no problems. An OK place to stay for the night if you want to be close to things in Louisville- just not really a campground. - johnsonj

Convenient parking to Louisville and Churchill Downs. You are in the parking lot of a large flea market that based in old warehouses. Neighborhood is a little dicey with many strip joints along the road. People working there are very friendly and helpful. Rate was for a 30 amp hookup in the off season. No water available at our site due to freezing temps. Rate for derby week is $650 for the week. They were completing wiring for 50 amp while we were there. - glenthompson

Park is right across the street from Church Hill Downs. Kind of tight for a 40' 5'er but fit-had to back in from the street though. Not a bad neighborhood. We stayed there almost 2 weeks for the fair. Owner is very friendly and helpful. Was quiet at night. Would stay there again. - reviewer3

We didn't actually stay here, but we pulled in and looked around. Posting this review since I've seen others ask about it. Trackside is directly behind Churchill Downs, and the lady we spoke to on the phone was quite friendly. Those are the good things. On the other hand, it was basically someone's backyard with some older hookups, in what appeared to be a somewhat sketchy area. It was fenced in, though. The handle on our water hookup was broken, and the sewer hookup was under a broken piece of cinderblock. We decided to leave, but it might be okay for a couple days if you're looking for the closest possible park to Churchill Downs. It was tough backing our 31' in from the street, and around the back of the garage. - NH Camper
