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. We camped at Louisville Metro KOA in a Motorhome.

Avoid Louisville rush hour! Cone Zones & poor signage here are stressful even under the best of circumstances. Coming in from 64 headed east, we had to take the 264 loop around to 65 & then go south to the park.

We stayed here 2 nights. Convenience to local Louisville sights is the only thing this campground has going for it. It is a blacktop parking lot surrounded by noise. We have a small fifthwheel and our neighbor's slide amost touched us...if we had a third slide, it would have touched. With highway construction it was very difficult to get to. We camped at Louisville Metro KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

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! We camped at Louisville Metro KOA in a Tent Trailer.

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. We camped at Louisville Metro KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Some very rude workers who think they know everything, but are new to living in a camper.

Very small site, basically a parking lot, normally have to park across the road and walk to your camper as sites aren't big enough for vehicles. We camped at Louisville Metro KOA in a Travel Trailer.

From the moment we made our reservations, to getting rerouted (because of road construction) to being led to our campsite, everyone was great.

The grounds are kept up wonderful, there is an attached gas station for convenience and they have good supply of necessary items in the store.

The owners run a tight ship.

The manager was excellent from our check-in, with advise for what to see and do, to her customer service our entire stay.

The only downside is the spaces are a little tighter together, but this is city camping and should be expected. You cannot get any closer than this to Louisville, (1 1/2 miles across the bridge and you are in downtown).

We came here in a 36 ft. motorhome (2 slides) towing our car. There was still space between our neighbor with his slide out. Easy in and out of the spaces.

We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Louisville Metro KOA in a Motorhome.

This CG is right off 65 in Indiana, but only a few short miles from downtown Louisville. The construction in this area, however, is a nightmare. Our GPS could not keep up with all the detours, rerouting and poorly marked exits. The CG itself is very compact. Sites are VERY close together. No grass, just gravel. We used the laundry facilities which were good and cheap. The camp store is very well stocked and clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The CG could use some sprucing up, but for the purpose of just a 1 or 2 night stay it's good. We only got 3 channels on the cable, but our satellite worked fine. We camped at Louisville Metro KOA in a Motorhome.

VERY narrow sites. Slides were over neighbors picnic table. No grass to speak of. Would qualify this as a parking lot with hook-ups instead of a campground. We camped at Louisville Metro KOA in a Motorhome.

This is not a campground! It is a small area of total asphalt and gravel with no grass whatsoever. The sites are so close together that the picnic table of the site next to us was up against our coach. I was unable to open our awning because it protruded into the street and would have been struck by passing RV's. I am not even sure I will be able to pull out without asking our neighbors to back up. The active railroad is 40 feet from the campground and homeless people tent camp on the other side of the railroad tracks. The only positive was that the staff was friendly.

Only acceptable for an overnight quick stop. We camped at Louisville Metro KOA in a Motorhome.

Relatively small park with small spaces between spots. To their advantage, they do get some privacy because the roads are slightly offset allowing one vehicle to be slightly ahead of he one in the next spot. Office is pretty well stocked and help is plentiful. WiFi worked well. Cable has a lot of channels. Convenient to Louisville but construction on I-65 makes it tough to get to (use Exit 1, then stay left). Sites are blacktop. Biggest complaint is the excessive lighting at night. To the good, many trees for partial shade. If returning, I'd stay here again just because of the limited CG's in the area. We camped at Louisville Metro KOA in a Motorhome.

Access to overnight spots is easy but they are very narrow and only about 55' long. You will probably have to unhook your towed. You can not fully extend your awning without contacting your neighbor's slideout! 50 amp power was stable around 120 VAC. Water pressure is 75#. (They sell high flow regulators in the store.) Rail line along back perimeter but not many trains on Sunday night. This park is convenient to downtown Louisville. Very friendly staff that make the best of the cards they have been dealt. We camped at Louisville Metro KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Beware of GPS directions to the 900 address. There is a 10' rail crossing and road construction in the area that can make access difficult from the south. Make sure you approach the park from the west if coming from Louisville. Use the GPS coordinates that are provided on the web page.

Very tight sites for pull thrus! Upon arriving, we were greeted by a gentleman that parked us in our site behind the store. We were there for only one night and used as a stop over but wouldn't want to spend additional time in the park. There is a train that runs by about 30 yards away behind campground. Sites are gravel topped and asphalt drives around park so our site didn't have any mud. Appears to be a lot of long term guests in park. I gave it a 4 based on value / amenities of the park. Not a lot of options close to downtown. Felt it was on the pricey side for what it was. We camped at Louisville Metro KOA in a Motorhome.

If you looking for a place to park and hook up and you never leave your motorhome, then this place is perfect. But if you want to see some grass you won't. It's really a huge parking lot. The dog walk area is a patch of grass 4 feet wide by 50 ft. But there is a park across the street to walk the dogs. There is also a train track right next to the property, it's a busy track but as the trains are crossing the bridge over the Ohio river they are traveling slow, but they still make a lot of noise. There is also a RV dealer right next door, so if you need parts or service they will come to your site. If your visiting Louisville, you can be downtown in less then 10 minutes as it's located right by busy I-65.

They recommend a water pressure regulator as the pressure is 75 psi at the faucet. We camped at Louisville Metro KOA in a Travel Trailer.

A couple of miles north of campground is great shopping and restaurants, movies and even a mall and Bass Pro Shop. The Louisville area offers more of the same and a Cabela's and much more shopping.

Park is close to downtown area and the staff was friendly are the only plus. I measured the distance between units and there is only 41" between my unit and the unit next to me with slideouts extended. Do not know why they even bothered putting picnic tables at the site as you couldn't use it if you wanted to. TV cable, on got a few channels, even though they list over 30. WAY over priced for bare bones campground. Other comments about airport and trains are accurate. Will not stop here again. We camped at Louisville Metro KOA in a Motorhome.
