This is a very clean, well maintained, and pretty state park. Interior roads are all paved and easy to navigate. All sites are back-in but the vast majority are quite easy to manage. Sites are paved, mostly level, with picnic table and fire ring. Choose wisely as not all sites have water or sewer. Bathrooms/showers were clean and well looked after. Plenty of room between sites. About 23 miles from downtown Louisville. We camped at Charlestown State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

$9 out-of-state per vehicle entrance fee, which totaled us $18 for the RV and our other vehicle. Electric was $30. I would not stay here again for just one night. In the past they let the vehicle entrance fee slide. Not this time. Everything else is what expected of a state park. Bathrooms clean and sites generally level. Very small playground with some tiny wooden swings; that's it. We camped at Charlestown State Park in a Motorhome.

We are new to RVing but quickly learning that state parks are the best! This one was large and incredibly beautiful with spacious sites that included a picnic table and fire ring with plenty of room between neighboring sites. There are large bath/shower buildings as well as some "ancillary" toilet facilities scattered throughout the park, especially at trailheads. The large bath/shower buildings were clean and inviting. We spent one night during what appeared to be off-season as there weren't many other RVs there. The dumpsters were quite full near our site on Mulberry Loop, however, even midweek. This park is about 20 miles from the interstate and, again, a beautiful park for a one night or more stop. We camped at Charlestown State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at their park for 5 nights, the last weekend of October was considered a holiday and the fee was 44 per night for W/S/E 50 amp, the price dropped to 33 weekdays , the site was spacious for our 43 foot RV, all sites are paved, the park was very quite and peaceful, They have approximately 5 hiking trails ranging from one to approx 2 1/2 miles, its a very nice park to walk, hike or bike, have a campfire, I believe most site are electric only, with water spickets along the road ways, dump stations on the way out of the park, we were able to get our satellite and I suspect most sites can ???but certainly not all, perhaps 60% can.

They shut off the water and close most of the park Nov 3 but they are open all year. We camped at Charlestown State Park in a Motorhome.

Charlestown is a very nice state park that has spacious, level sites including some with full hookups. All the utilities function well. The park features good hiking trails and access to the Ohio River. Its proximity to Louisville make it a great location for exploring the metropolitan area while staying in a rural setting. The staff is friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.

Caution: A beatle like bug invaded our unit during our stay; may be good to spray tires and block cords and hoses. We camped at Charlestown State Park in a Motorhome.

The sites here are nice and large, typical of most state parks we've stayed in. The park appears very clean, groomed, and maintained. It's nice to find full hookups at a state park, and for a reasonable fee. There's also a $9 park entry fee, but fortunately that was a one-time charge and not a daily charge like most other parks. Sites are paved (asphalt) and fairly level, with picnic table and fire ring, and grass lawns. Each campground loop has a nice buffer of trees around each side, but there are few trees on or between sites, so there's not much privacy. There a plenty of hiking trails in the state park, including one from the campground, and one that visits the remains of the Rose Island amusement park that was destroyed in a flood 80 years ago. There's no WiFi, but our Verizon and AT&T both worked well. Since we had full hookups we didn't check out the bath houses at all and can't report on them. We'd return here. We camped at Charlestown State Park in a Motorhome.

There is a daily vehicle fee. During our stay (not on a weekend), the guard booths were not manned and we were never asked to pay. Other reviewers do a good job of describing this absolutely wonderful state park. I will focus on a few other topics. First - We were there mid-October and, while the park was somewhat empty, nearly all full h/u sites were occupied. In fact, we had to leave on Friday morning because all full h/u sites were reserved for the weekend. Second - we didn't see any snakes or experience any "bug problems". We had lots of rain and water drained well at our site and around the park. Third - if you're coming in from I-65 via "Old Indiana 160", it's a typical two lane country road complete with curves and whoop-de-dos. The speed limit seems high relative to the road. Take your time. There isn't much traffic. Safety first. Last - we were in Site #185. It was big, had a hedge for privacy on our front door side and we were able to get a DirecTV signal. However, our windshield looked across the road directly at a utility panel maybe 6' high x 4' wide. There's enough beauty around that it doesn't make a difference but, if we go back, we'd select another site if available. Verizon cell and Sprint Mifi worked well. The CG does not offer wifi. Hook-ups worked well. Water pressure was fine. We loved our time here, wished we could have stayed longer and would certainly stay here again. We camped at Charlestown State Park in a Motorhome.

This was our first time here and we stayed here to visit Louisville and Lexington Kentucky. This is a very nice park and campground with huge sites that are fairly level. We had full hookups and everything was adequate with the utilities. The cost per night came to $40.00 with all the taxes and fees, but it was still a good deal. There are almost 200 sites and almost all were empty while we were here so it was nice not having to fight the crowds. We would stay here again. Just have to watch out for the copperhead snakes. We saw one in the road as we were taking our evening walk around the camp grounds. Apparently they have also been seen on the trails. An ounce of prevention..... We camped at Charlestown State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here with the intention of using it as a base to explore the Louisville area. Although the location is about a 30-minute drive from downtown Louisville, it was ideal for us. The campground was beautifully maintained and mowed. Roads are plenty wide and all paved. Town is a couple miles away with a grocery store and most everything you need. Our site faced northeast and if we come back we would request this site again. The patio was huge. We camped at Charlestown State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you're interested in going on the Bourbon Trail, consider a tour package. We used Mint Julep Tours and visited 4 distilleries with a small group of 12. The tour left from downtown Louisville, included lunch and got back in plenty of time for us to drive back to the campground before the sun set.

If you need a propane bottle filled, you will need to travel at least 7 miles south of town or further. The only propane we could find in Charlestown is the exchange-type bottles.

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. We camped at Charlestown State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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!

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. We camped at Charlestown State Park in a Motorhome.

Check out Jeff's bakery next to the McDonald's headed towards Jeffersonville. If pizza or beer are your thing, check out New Albanian in, well, New Albany. Great selection of both their house beers as well as a great selection of craft and pizzas you'll want to take home.

I LOVE this campground. Full hookups, many sites are quite private. Spent about 10 days here, and weekends were more popular--but there were still many empty spots. Weekdays? It was just me and a few others. Really quiet, peaceful, interesting park. Camp hosts were very friendly.

I have a 35 foot travel trailer and did happen to pick a site that was a bit tough to back into due to the electric grid across from it. However, I got into it and loved my spot for it's amazing privacy. Literally couldn't see the people next to me, if any had been there, nor the people behind at all, as they are separated from the rest by very large expanse as well as lots of foliage. If you were to pick an electric only site, you'd have even more privacy as I only saw like 3 or 4 of those used at all. I'll definitely be coming back to this campground.

I could not ignore the negative post about the camp host. We spent 5 days in July and 14 days in Sep directly across the road from the camp host. They were two of the nicest people we encountered during our 4 months of travel. Maybe if people obeyed the rules camp hosts would not have to raise their voices. Also had occasion to interact with park manager - another very helpful and competent individual.
Re the park, large beautiful sites, only drawback - no WiFi. To remote for cable but had no issue getting good satellite reception (may not be possible in many sites due to numerous trees). Would definitely recommend this park, the best we have found in the Louisville metro area - we have stayed in many and speak from experience. We camped at Charlestown State Park in a Motorhome.

Everything was fantastic at Charlestown SP. Sparkling clean & odor free restrooms, clean RV sites & fire rings, large entry roads, large secluded RV sites, and very friendly Park Hosts. We will definitely return. About the only time the SP fills up is during major holidays. We camped at Charlestown State Park in a Motorhome.

About 3 miles is a grocery store called Jay-C's 9501 State Road 403, Charlestown. Very nice grocery store. For campfire wood, just 1.5 mi south from the SP is a Feed Store & Nursery, 11106 Dean Street, Charlestown that sold VERY LARGE ROUND CONTAINERS of good quality firewood for $10. Place the bucket in back of your vehicle & load it full! If the feed store is closed, right next door is a ice cream shop - you can just pay them!
