Make sure to follow directions on the website to Exit 1 and Stansifer Road. Do not use GPS as that will take you to a 10' underpass.

I agree with what others have said. This is a very difficult park to maneuver around with the really tight spaces, narrow roads and culverts. The roads are so narrow, in fact, that they have orange posts up so you don't hit another camper while trying to turn. There's no landscaping, so it looks like a big parking lot. It's actually right behind a gas station (appears that the gas station is part of the park) so this must have been the parking lot for the gas station at some point before it was a campground. Most people only stay overnight or just a few days, (sadly, we're here for work from June until Oct. as there was nowhere else in the area near Louisville we could stay), and most of those rigs are nice. But around the perimeter are long term or permanent residents whose campers are old, filthy and falling apart. Real eyesore. Trains do sound like thunder and run constantly. I used to live near train tracks, so I know how to block out the sound. Power, water and sewer were good. We camped at Louisville North Campground (formerly Louisville Metro KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

The spaces are so tight you can't even get past the old, splintered picnic tables. It is nothing but a parking lot next to train tracks, and the last one comes thru at 11:30 pm. There are horrible, deep culverts you have to rock and roll thru to get out of there.

We won't be returning. It is not a KOA, but their prices think it is. The lady in the office was very nice. We camped at Louisville North Campground (formerly Louisville Metro KOA) in a Motorhome.

The sites nearly touch each other and it is really a parking lot with hookups. The railroad freight cars hooking up 50 yards away are like thunder claps. The PROMISED cable was non functional...I was told it was my cable...I bought one at their store...got 4 more channels...not one was a major network or even a secondary one. I missed the show and channel I had called ahead on to be sure of availability. There was NO other site available. My old cable works perfectly tonight pulling in 96 channels in the current park. The bathrooms are not filthy, but they lack attention and the cigarette butt on the floor and the 3 built in ashtrays don't appeal. The good...the sites were flat, electric & water worked, wifi was decent. You don't get much for your $40 bucks & KOA should remove their affiliation.

We would not stay here again. We camped at Louisville North Campground (formerly Louisville Metro KOA) in a Motorhome.

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 North Campground (formerly 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.

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 North Campground (formerly 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 North Campground (formerly 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 North Campground (formerly 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 North Campground (formerly 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.

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 North Campground (formerly 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 North Campground (formerly 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.

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.

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.
