We had visited this park last winter but could not get in to see the campgrounds. We booked this park as we were going to a nearby town and thought we would take a chance. We were very pleasantly surprised. We had a site with a water view that would have been better had some of the brush been cut back. Our site had ample room, a picnic table and a fire pit. We had an electric site in the F loop. The bathroom and shower house were quite nice but the building could use more ventilation as the temperature was in the 90's and the air was extremely heavy in there. A great stay and we will be back again. - jrhude

We arrived mid-week and the campground was nearly empty - only 4 other sites were filled. Our site F-26 was a pull-through at the end of the campground peninsula. Only electric hookups but water spigot was next to our site. We were on the water with easy access to the lake to launch our kayak. Our site was not level - we had to put blocks under the tires to get level. The staff are questionable - they didn't seem to know the answers to any questions we asked. The campground was about 75% full over the weekend - mainly tents. The folks who came into F27 next to us pitched their tent very close to our fire ring but that was the closest level spot to their angled driveway. Ruined our view of the lake. There was a guy fishing near us wearing a holster and gun - kinda scary. I quess it is legal in IN. We stayed 5 nights and would stay here again. - DKL1219

Beautiful, treed sites. There are a few 50 amp sites, and a few sites barely suitable for big rigs. Most of the sites are short and not level enough for a motorhome. The campground loop is a dead end and we had to unhook the toad to go back. You'll do well keeping your interaction with "management" to a minimum. We called 3 hrs ahead and were told sites are first come first served. Not true. On arrival we were charged $7 to find a site, but I waited 10 min in the rain while the ranger marked a map with a black pen to show sites that had been reserved that day and told me that these were reserved. That map was the only one in existence and she suggested I take a photo with my cell phone so I would not take a reserved site. I did so, but the sites are poorly marked. BTW, they could not spare a map for me to take. Anyway, that process did not work for me and we opted for Walmart. At the exit, the ranger had to call a supervisor in order to get permission to refund the $7 I had paid to enter. Do not enter the park when it is raining, you have to stand outside, under the dripping roof eave while waiting for the ranger to mark up the map that shows reserved sites. She had no clue as to which sites were pull-throughs and which were long enough in order to take a 38' motorhome. - rebane

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 a very well kept, pleasant no-frills place. We're here for a long-term work assignment so it fits our needs, but it may not be the place for someone with a family looking for a resort type place, as there is no place to ride a bike, no playground and no amenities other than a laundry room (which is nice). Some spaces are spacious, others are very close - depends on where in the campground you are. - cherylbrv

Stayed here overnight on our way to Iowa. Clean campground. Appears to be a fair amount of permanent residents there, but the park was quiet. Appreciated the escort to our site. Our site was long enough to accommodate our 35 ft motorhome with tow dolly & car attached, so we didn't have to unhook for the night. Followed the directions on the campground website and it was easy to find. - gegllwy

Stayed for a one nighter. Cramped spaces. I couldn't even open my awning with out hitting my neighbors awning. They have cleaned up the bath house but I have a bathroom and shower so didn't use. Laundry, if needed, was closely priced for a laundry mat. No swimming pool or area to swim but they have a lake. No swimming is allowed. Rules are enforced. But they have one that I broke. I had to see if my dish was messed up because I wasn't getting reception. So I climbed up on my camper. Sewer perfect spot for me, 3 inch screw on and must be screwed on, the one that was for my site was broken. Had to use a unoccupied site's sewer. Fresh water was clean and a lot of pressure. Use a regulator. I used my inline filter also. But I always do. Electric 50amp was good. EMS says it was okay. It's in the middle of the site on a post. Interior roads gravel sites dirt/gravel. Unlevel 3 inches under wheels and 2 inches difference under my front landing gear. - Tommy3guns

Nastiest manager you'll ever meet. Trash everywhere. Dangerously exposed wires and sharp rusty pipes coming out of the ground in play areas that said manager refuses to remove. Floods every time it rains. Mud and dead grass everywhere. All concrete pads are crumbling. It is a stone's throw from 2 interstates which are VERY LOUD. Water is off more than it is on sometimes. The office is closed more than it is open and did I say the nastiest manager you'll ever meet? Go somewhere else. - HoosierRV

This is a mobile home park that is converting some spaces to RV. The site conversions are not exactly RV friendly. Narrow concrete strips for the wheels, the jacks are on soft ground and the sewer is located under the RV. The streets have many speed bumps, many of the remaining mobiles homes should be removed and it is very noisy. There is constant noise from I-65, train horns several times a day and night, and the occasional plane traffic; not a peaceful location. We stayed here for 3 months while working for Amazon; the cost of the site was paid for by Amazon. This may develop into an acceptable RV park in a few years but it will always be noisy. The park is on the northern outskirts of Clarksville so shopping and other services are a few miles away.
The sites are level with broken concrete patios and grass areas. No tables or fire rings. 50 amp electrical.
The water is good quality city service but use a filter. The pressure fluctuates, especially in the morning.
There is no park provided cable or wifi. Service may be obtained from Time Warner. Typical OTA channels.
There is no laundry, pool, showers, park activities, etc. The staff is helpful, when asked, but otherwise they are rarely seen.
A mailbox can be purchased from USPS. UPS and FedEx deliver here, but have difficulties locating Lakeview Dr.
We will probably not be stay again as we have no desire to work for Jeffersonville Amazon (SDF8) again. - Wiyndog

This is a nice stopping point for a night or two. Easy in and out and 1.1 miles from I-65 in Southern Indiana. They have 4 spots, but 2 are occupied by other campers that don't seem to be moving. Very nice neighborhood around the Lodge. They are open everyday at 11:00 and serve food all day. You must be a Moose member to camp here and enter the Lodge. The lodge is a non-smoking lodge. There is one water spigot for all 4 spots. We camped in the second spot and our hose was long enough to reach the water spigot. Each site has 50 amp service. There is no dump. The site is fairly level. - Cliff-fa-fa

Be aware that you BETTER know how to drive your RV before committing to stay here. Very tight fit. If you have short-term business in the Louisville area or just passing through, you can get away with staying here. They are open 7am-10pm, so late arrivals & early check-outs are ok. Very close to the Louisville area. Otherwise, get ready for a heavy dose of planes, trains, and trucks. EVERY night, there was a noisy train. When the train wasn't running or tooting it's horn, there was a steady diet of planes flying overhead. Spaces are incredibly tight, so if you're here for a long time and your neighbor ties their barking dogs outside their RV at 7am or decides to run their diesel truck for 30 minutes in the morning, there's nothing you can do. At one point, a neighbor's awning was touching my RV. If you have dogs, there's nowhere for you to walk them-contrary to the pictures on their website. While most staff was INCREDIBLY nice & helpful, their kindness was negated by one rude individual whom I believe was the manager. For example, one night my power meter for my electric went out, and one of their nice staff members quickly swapped out the box. However, not only did the box lack a cover over the connection to protect it from rain, but this rude staff member knocked on my RV the following afternoon and told me to immediately shut off my power so the electric box could be worked on. When I said that I couldn't do it right now because I was billing a client on my computer, this individual YELLED at me saying that it was an inconvenience to come back in an hour on my schedule. Looking back, there were some good things about the park. Clean bathrooms, a small convenience store that was open long hours, plenty of propane, lots of friendly staff members, cheap laundry, & water connections that are well set-up for winter. Unfortunately, the few bad things FAR-outweighed the good things. Don't stay here for long periods. - RLT1

It's a tight, packed park. But....very close to downtown Louisville. Looks like lots of full time residents here. I had help getting in. They have picnic tables but there really isn't a lot of room for them. It's level and paved. Only down side are the many trains that pass by,especially very early in the morning. Good, well stocked store that's a convenience store in the neighborhood. - LEB2

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

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

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

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

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
