Although the park does not contain a lot of trees it has a pool, playground, bike trail, and fishing pond. It is clean neat and has easy access...and great Wi-Fi! We camped at Follow the River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The campground seems brand-new but is actually 9 years old. It was obviously designed for big-rigs, and by someone who knows something about RVers needs:

1-concrete, level pads

2-paved and wide interior roads (2 lanes wide)

3-each site has a wide apron, with paved strip up to the pad

4-sites are well-spaced, better-than-average at least

5-full hookups, good utilities, with cable

6-adequate WiFi strength/speed

7-clean shower houses/bathrooms

It is not on the river itself, but across Highway 156, which is the road that runs along the Ohio river. There is a "fishing" pond in the middle, which is just a large puddle-like a retention pond. It's catch and release only, and I did see some people catching small fish. There is a playground, with a large bouncing balloon. There is an excellent ½ mile paved trail around the wooded along the west boundary - one of the better ones I've seen at any campground. A major casino is just up the road.

The only negatives (minor) are :

1-most of the sites are in an open clearing, with the parking lot feel of an open field. If you want some trees there is one row along the back where the sites back up to the woods.

2-Cable TV has limited channels. We camped at Follow the River RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Nice wide open easy in and out. Back in and pull through sites with full hookups. Close to Kentucky Motor Speedway and a river boat casino. Casino has a very nice golf course. We camped at Follow the River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed as an overnight while traveling in the off season. Very easy access to and in the park with our extra large sized 40'+ big rig RV. Quiet at night and park looks very well kept. I thought the price was high for just an electric connection and concrete pad since water at the sites was turned off (but available at the office) but, during their regular season, looks like it would be a fair value given the amenities. Great AT&T and Verizon signal. Satellite signal available at most sites. We would stay again. We camped at Follow the River RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Great park, open spaces, great for satellite reception. Not much in the area. Needs some dirt around the concrete slabs. Wifi was good when we were here but not many people were in the park. The weekends pick up quite a bit. Rate was weekly rate. We camped at Follow the River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a fairly well maintained campground, with helpful and friendly staff at check in. Interior roads are paved. Our concrete pad was a long and level pull through, and it was very spacious, plenty of room for the towed. Very quiet with a few shade trees, as yet too small to give much shade, plenty of manicured grass and a concrete pad with a picnic table. Big rig access was good, this park is very spacious, even for the biggest rig. However, the bathrooms and laundry were dirty, there was trash on the floor and they both needed a good clean and a major update. WiFi and cell were good. There is a small pool, lake with catch and release, playground and lots of walking trails to enjoy. There are wonderful restaurants and very unique shops as well as great sightseeing in some of the local small towns. We would stay here again. We camped at Follow the River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We like this park for several reasons, so we have come here a few times since purchasing our RV last fall. 1. It's close to Belterra Casino, and the shuttle will come get you and drop you off. 2. It's very close to where we live, so it's just a 45 minute drive for us to get here. 3. The place has never been real full when we have stayed there, so it's easy to find good open spaces to walk the dogs. They also have a long walking trail that goes down through the woods, and winds around by a creek that obviously has come out of its banks during heavy rains.

We were in spot #55 this time, which is one of the sides where you don't get the afternoon sun in your face. With the awning open, you can have shade through the afternoon, and you're right by the lake for some good catch and release fishing.

After arriving this past weekend, we were getting set up and had the a/c running, the TV on, and then half of our power went out. We thought it was a fluke, and reset the breaker at the pole. Later when hubby turned on the microwave, the breaker popped again. Went to the office and they gave us a 50/30 converter plug, and told us to plug into the 50-amp. We did that, had no more problems, until we went to unplug upon leaving time. We then found that our plug had black burn markets, and the plastic was melted. We had to replace the plug, and have called the owner to make sure he is aware of the problem, but he has yet to return our call.

Park is wide open, so getting a sat signal for TV is no problem. WiFi is spotty ... a lot of emails will come in overnight when less people are using it.

Baths are clean, but poor water pressure.

People still call this a new park, but it has been around long enough for them to now have problems that aren't being handled, like the breakers. They also have probably 90% of the pole lights at the sites that are out. Some money and landscaping could really bring this park up where they would be sold out all of the time. We camped at Follow the River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice campground that is located about 1 mile from the Markland Dam and the crossing into Kentucky. The nightly rate is far more than other parks in the area. We were there as a camping group and had a great experience. The park is a perfect location for the NASCAR Races at Kentucky Speedway. It is also good for a group rally. I would not stay here as an individual because of the excess cost. We camped at Follow the River RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Overpriced for the amenities that they have. The whole campground is paved, which is nice. They do have a nice stage and host live music once a month. They also have nice paved walking/riding path. The location is good, somewhat close to the expressway, and close to the KY Speedway and Bellterra Casino. Now for the things we dis-liked: The cable TV doesn't work, so don't count on that. The pool is a saltwater pool. It doesn't bother some people, but isn't real refreshing on a hot day. There is also no shade or tables around the pool. We have young kids and the playground isn't real entertaining for them. In my opinion, this campground is worth about $35 a night, which is the rate you pay Sunday-Thursday, but on Friday and Saturday they jack the rate to $48. We camped at Follow the River RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Newer campground with excellent sites and concrete pads. The rest rooms were very clean. The people are very friendly. The swimming pool was very clean. The only problem was that the cable was very poor at our site, and one other site where friends were staying. Three other sites had no problems. Also, there was no shade. Trees have been planted but have not matured. We will camp here again. We camped at Follow the River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a relatively new campground, obviously built with clientele looking for more upscale than normal places. Sites are large with level concrete pads and patios. Nice smaller pool (salt water), catch and release fishing lake, playground, and sand volleyball arena. We thought rates were a bit high, but they obviously are hoping to attract casino traffic (2 miles) and Switzerland County, IN, numerous festivals and tourist attractions. It is a bit far from major highways for an overnight. Except for the cost, we have no negatives. We camped at Follow the River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We were here over the Thanksgiving holiday. It is something to be in a campground with nearly 160 sites and BE THE ONLY TT IN THE CAMPGROUND. It was certainly quiet at night. Veevay is such a great little town - River museum, and grand old homes. Then into Madison - WOW!! It was a shipping town - big successful businessmen built big homes (mansions) and then along came the rail-roads but because of the large hill behind Madison, the railroads couldn't get into the town so passed it by. Nothing was ever torn down - there are 133 blocks on the National Registry of Historic Homes! Many of them are for sale if you have any interest in historic homes, this is the place to be. We also visited Hanover College-high above the Ohio River with all Georgian architec-ture. Beautiful campus. Much to see in the area. We had car problems and the owner of the CG came by and spent a lot of time trying to get us operational. Finally called to get a tow truck for us. Very accommodating - much more than was necessary. We left the day after Thanksgiving as the ground was covered with snow - time to put the TT away for the winter. We camped at Follow the River RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

As a first time RVer on his inaugural trip, all I have to say about Follow the River is, "WOW!" If this is "RV resort" living, I'm all for it. It has easy, high clearance access from I-71. Just follow the signs to the Belterre Casino then go the other way after you pass the lock and dam (that's a right turn), it's a mile down and to your right. This park is new, groomed and down right luxurious! There are few trees on site but the northern most sites offer excellent afternoon and evening shade from the summer sun. They have pull throughs but I had no trouble with a back-in. Guys with short hoses, like me, just need to keep close to the edge of the parking pads and you'll have no problems with the lighted ShoreMaster hook-ups. Were it not for the fact that we had destinations and deadlines, we'd have loved to stay longer! We camped at Follow the River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a relatively new RV park. The grounds were very clean. Had planned activities for the kids and a very nice, salt water pool (pack the eye drops though). Has a nice bike route, sand volleyball, decent playground, a good sized clubhouse. All the sites are extremely level with huge concrete patios. It's very quiet even though located on the main road. Only negative is the limited items in the camp store, (but a local grocery is within 5 miles). Although this is a family friendly park, for families with more than 2 kids (12 & over), there's a small fee per night charged extra. We camped at Follow the River RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Nice, new park with full hookups at every site. Generally a nice group of respectful people here that are quiet and well behaved. Would like to see more activities for kids such as mini-golf or something. Only negative is the price: we would go here more, but it's expensive.
