Very nice park, site was wooded, level, paved and close to restrooms. Indiana state charges for everything. $7 entrance fee, in addition to camp fees. Plus $5 each person per day for entrance to pool. Caves are closed, but others nearby. Mountain bikes trails are for experienced riders. - Edna jones

We have stayed here three times in the past. All three times were enjoyable. In the past we were able to attend the Wyandotte Cave guided tours, but the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has closed nearly all the caves in the state in order to protect bats from a disease that is killing them off. However, the tour through Indiana Caves was well worth the price of admission. The sites vary from very level to very unlevel, but most people did not seem to have extreme problems getting them level. The sites in the "A" portion seemed to be the most level. The restrooms were dated, but clean. Trails were poorly marked so that could use improvement. The water park was very nice especially with two grandkids in tow. We were there during the 1850's haypress demonstration and pioneer village reenactment which was interesting, but can't take the place of the cave tours. - Dewey Smith

The park was very scenic. We stayed at Site 35. When reserving it, we were told that the site was level and that slide-outs were allowed. Upon arriving at our site to set-up, we quickly realized that those statements were not accurate. Our site was not level by any means. In order to level out our 30' travel trailer, we had to lift the camper almost 6 inches just on the door side of the camper to make it level from side to side. Since we have a slide out, due to the trees, we were not able to back all the way into the back of our site. As a result, the steps of RV were not the asphalt pad. There was at least 20" between the ground and our bottom step. This made it VERY DIFFICULT to get in and out of our travel trailer, especially with our 90 pound German Shepard, who had to be lifted up and down the steps each time. It was also dangerous for our 5 year-old. I do NOT recommend this particular site to anyone with a slide-out or a larger RV. It may be okay for pop-ups and for primitive camping. On a positive note, the campground was very nice and the staff was very polite and friendly. The State Park itself has an extremely nice pool with waterslides, kiddie pool, splash area and a nice-sized regular pool. The admission for the pool is only $2/person, which was more than worth it. - Penny C

The women's restroom was locked, so I used the men's. It was out of toilet tissue. It was mostly a place for long-term stays and many of the RVs were old and unsightly. There was free Wi-Fi, but no cable hook-ups. - Kean

We have camped here before. Not much has changed a little cleaner maybe. Very good power. It was an overnight stay this time. Easy on and off I-64, about 2 miles away. - ragsland

The campground is mainly occupied by long term stays. We were there for 3 days and no one ever checked on us. We were the only ones in our area; we did ask to move due to the space we were originally asked to go in was not big enough for our rig. The place is run down, not well kept, trash laying around, old run down campers sitting with weeds grown up all around them, grass is long and a lot of weeds. We counted 6 copperhead snakes, however, the campground does sit on Indian Creek. There was a sign in the not so clean bath house, which consisted of a toilet, sink and shower, that stated to clean it up or lose privileges to it. We did not use the bath house. It looks like at one time it may have been a nice place; It's a shame. The Good Sam discount was only $1/day. Most of the shops in the town were closed by 4:30 on Saturday and not open at all on Sunday. Did I expect more for $50/day? Yes, I guess I did because I have received better for the same price and less. There is obviously no pride in the ownership/management of this campground :( We will not go back and not recommend it. - Snoopzq

Very nice little place right on the bank of the Ohio River. Quiet and peaceful. They had a little laundry room, but we didn't use it.
The road coming in was narrow and a little bumpy, but manageable.
There are 2 rows, the Inner and Outer. The inner is on the river bank and cost 10$ more. There were very few shaded sites in either row, but it seemed the outer had a little more shade. All the sites are back in.
The Camp Store was closed the whole time we were there, (and looked like they had been for a while)so be sure to get your supplies before you get there, it is 20 miles to the closest real grocery store.
There was almost no phone signal (Verizon)...I could get a text out sometimes. The WIFI was pretty good, except on weekends. Also we couldn't pick up any tv channels, even with our booster.
There were 2 restaurants close by.
All in all it was a good value. - GranNan06

A hidden gem located in Leavenworth Indiana, right on the banks of the Ohio River. A little hard to get to. The entrance road is one lane and twisted. But the locals go to allow for incoming Rv's. We even had a local driver show us the way to the park. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Full hookup sites with gravel base. There was a large flat area for games and family events even the play area for kids with swings and slides. Totally peaceful and serene. Enjoyed watching the barges go up and down the Ohio River. - oldguyinrv

Great little campground on the river. Vary nice people running the place. The only thing I did not like the road into the campground it is a little tight at times. Mostly Shady, dirt sites, Picnic Table, and fire ring. - This Old Man

Park looks very nice. There is a 24 hour lit public walking trail around the pond in the park as well as Disc golf course and outdoor exercise equipment. Lots of ducks, geese and flying bugs. Small petting zoo on premises as well as paddle boats for rent. Rentals not offered when we visited. Did not use the restroom or shower facilities. Wood for sale was 4x4 blocks, which I've never seen firewood sold like that, but I'm sure it keeps the fires smaller. Electric and Water only. Dump on-site. As with most State parks, beware the park entrance fee - $6, non-resident. - Unknown_Normal

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 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

Derby Park Expo Five is a unique RV Park and Campground located only 7 blocks from Churchill Downs, The home of the Kentucky Derby. - MagicDonnie
May 2017 - $1.00
This is not a campground. It at best is an unattended parking lot. The location is in a very shady part of town. You have to pull a large RV through the hood to get to this place. The place is unattended and messages left on their phone were not returned. IMHO, this place should not be listed as a campground. We left because we did not feel safe in this area of town. Maybe it is different on weekends when the flea market is operating but then all you migh have is electricity. I did not see any other facilities. - Ras2

A most unusual experience. I knew from researching Louisville, that there weren't a lot of top notch locations in which to stay. We picked this Derby Park, site of a large flea market on the weekends, and we made the mistake of arriving during the flea market. The supervisor came in his car and guided us into a large grass and dirt parking lot with electrical boxes on the fences. It is used mainly as a camping spot for RVs during the Kentucky Derby. We plugged in along the fence but then noticed that this was also the parking area for the Haunted House attraction that night. The manager, who really went out of his way to help us in every area, and is to be commended, suggested that we move our rig down to the other side after the flea market closed and we would be away from the Haunted House. We did that, but were surprised in the morning to have our RV surrounded by cars, and a farmer selling chickens and live roosters to a multitude of people. This park is located in a very seedy area, but amazingly we experienced no problems. As nice as the manager was, we will never be back. There were no other RVs that even tried to stay here. Electric only. I heard there was a dump station but with so many cars there, we left. - elduque

The campground is nice, but there were a lot of nice sites that were closed and no longer available (the nicer wooded end). :( The entrance has roomier sights for larger RV's but very few and no bathhouse near. The center section has VERY tight spots, too tight to maneuver our TH into. I was told several sights would accommodate us but, there was less that I was told. The buddy sight (for 3) is great & roomy if you can get it - Great idea!!! There is no sewer, but there is a dump station...however, being a large RV & staying close to the entrance, it is still difficult to maneuver through the campground to get to there and back out to the exit. SO MUCH POTENTIAL. Its a nicely wooded campground with activities to do. Hiking, fishing, disc golf, caves, planetarium, & a very nice, creek to swim, or fish in & you can go down to the Ohio River. The entrance gate looks tight, looked too tight to get through, but you can make it.I do wish they would widen this, as there is room to do so and I feel it desperately needs it!! There is a really nice cedar lined lane before you get to the campground too; as long as they keep it trimmed up, you can barely make it. I know that for 4 years this park was closed due to budget cuts and is now re-opened, maybe they will work on the park soon. SO MUCH POTENTIAL. Its a nice campground, but being old, larger 5th wheel/toy haulers were not thought of....You will fit into limited spots... as for smaller TT and tents...its a nice campground!!! - HeatherV

Reserved 2 sites two months in advance, for Halloween weekend. When we arrived on Fri, paid for another night as we were staying two nights. Could not get a camper in one of the sites, it was to steep and short. Had to leave and go find another campground. Please go and look at your sites if you are not familiar with them. Stayed last year had a blast. Only took a lot of pine sap and straw home with us. - Joel Atteberry

Great place to relax. VERY quiet, no planes, trains, or highways. Wooded sites with lots of shade, lots of pine needles on your rig too. Trees can make maneuvering a little tricky. The fishing in Otter Creek is great. Lots of trout! Excellent swimming hole too! Shower and toilets were very old with lots of bugs and spiders. Would rate higher, but no site sewer hookups. Had to move rig to dump site every few days. Electric was solid till weather turned bad, then started having brown-outs. Staff were very friendly. Golf carts are allowed. Gravel sites are fairly level, but roads need repaving. This campground was built long before the big Class A motorhomes. Still, my wife, kids, and I can't wait to go back! Great value for your dollar. - mjngerti

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

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. - cherylbrv

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. - AKgypsies

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. - Camaraderie
