There are a large number of sites where trailers are parked long term. Owners have been working on sites and roads and we found both much better than last visit. Our site was level with just enough room for our tow vehicle. We have stayed here before and will stay again as it's close to family in the area. We camped at Aurora Oaks Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a pretty place, well off the road in thick trees. We were assigned a pull through that was long enough for our RV and level enough, once we jockeyed to the right position. Utilities were fine, except internet kept dropping out, in spite of a strong Wifi signal level. We had to back out using an empty site behind us, due to low tree branches and the new owner's OHV parking. The park was sold during our stay. We had a few issues with the new owner's dogs. The new owners are largely an unknown quantity. Time will tell. We camped at Aurora Oaks Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground is a former KOA located back in the woods off US 68. The campground is under new ownership (less than a week). As of now, it is cash only. The new co-owner, said they are working on getting a credit card machine soon. Please note the rate is different than what is listed on the website. They gave us our choice of the six sites for weekend campers. The rest of the campground is on a lease per year basis. There are a lot of campers here, but ironically, not too many were here this weekend in July when we came. This campground had areas where definitely TLC is needed, but in other areas, you could see recent updates. New waterspouts at each site, the bathrooms were recently updated, and look exceptional. The pool was clean. One of the owners showed me a cabin they have, and it was awesome looking inside. Then there were things that tended to take away from the natural ambience this place could have. A vineyard is up front as you pull in. However, it is a little unsightly and not well cared for. The fence around the pool, while safe, has seen better days. My wife and I spoke extensively with the new owners and they are planning a lot of improvements. We will return as we want to see what they have in store for this campground. We camped at Aurora Oaks Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Aurora is a neat area. There are numerous shops and food choices within a mile of the campground. Marshall County recently repealed the ban on the sales of alcohol is now a wet county.

Fairly level site even though the land sloped down. Mostly seasonals so some activity on the weekends. We camped at Aurora Oaks Campground in a Motorhome.

I went down to Hazel, KY to shop at the antique stores. Also went to several racetracks in the area. It is a tourist area with hiking, boating, etc.

I am grateful that this park was able to accommodate my 39 foot fifth wheel. The restrooms are being updated, and the women's rest room is actually very nice. The men's restroom, however, is incredibly in need of updating. It does has a swimming pool, and the owner was quite accommodating. We camped at Aurora Oaks Campground in a Motorhome.

One of our favorite parks. Mike, the new owner others have mentioned, is making great strides toward turning this into a fine campground. We stayed here a month and couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. It's a good quiet location well back off the road with easy access. We had no trouble maneuvering our 53' combination. Our space was long and well-packed and needed only minor leveling. Water, sewer and WiFi were all reliable. Mike's incredibly helpful in giving advice and solving problems. When we had a problem with our power service, Mike let us plug in to the next space, and he rushed to replace the faulty part as soon as the hardware store opened the next morning. There's a nice pool and rec shelter and the laundry room has clean, new-looking machines. Mike has lots of plans for the property, including a vineyard and amphitheater. There are a lot of permanent residents, nearly all having well-kept sites. We'll definitely stay here next time we're in the area. We stayed in space 44. The price listed reflects weekly rates. We camped at Aurora Oaks Campground in a Travel Trailer.

An earlier RV Park Review suggested giving Aurora Oaks a try because the campground is under new ownership and the new owners are working diligently to bring the campground back to life. We stayed at Aurora Oaks based on that review and we absolutely agree. This campground is a pleasant place to stay. We rated the facility a 7 primarily because the bathroom/bathhouse hadn’t been renovated when we were there and did need attention. The results of the new owner’s efforts to improve the facility and plans for expanding services will earn it higher ratings in the future. The campground is quiet and away from traffic. It is convenient to several attractions without being on a major highway or thoroughfare. The entry drive is on the north side of the road. The campground sign and street sign are posted yet not glaringly obvious. The sites were adequately spaced though somewhat out of level. We used our leveling blocks so leveling was not an issue. The campground is in the midst of the beautiful hills and lake country of Western Kentucky. All of the services we used worked fine and were reliable (30 amp electric, water, sewer, Wi-Fi). We used a pressure reducer for the water supply which had excellent water pressure. When electrical storms rolled through one night, the hosts turned off the Wi-Fi server to prevent damage to the system. The server was immediately brought back up after the storm. Aurora Oaks has a helpful and attentive host family. Periodic activities are held for the seasonal campers. Overnight (non seasonal) campers are welcome to join in. We will stay at Aurora Oaks again and do recommend it as an overnight stop and, even more, as a destination. We camped at Aurora Oaks Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Campground has been recently purchased by new ownership. The new owners have done an excellent job of cleaning up the park and making it family friendly. These new owners are struggling to overcome the bad reputation created by the former owners. If you have not been here in the past year (2008), give it a try, you won't be disappointed. When we moved our Travel Trailer in to this campground, the new owner went out of his way to make sure our camper was level and that the site was clean and ready for us to move in to. He went way above an beyond what you normally see owners do. Great family type atmosphere and some of the most beautiful woods you will ever see. We camped at Aurora Oaks Campground in a Travel Trailer.
