This is a beautiful park; long, wide, level concrete sites with concrete patios and picnic tables. The only reason I rated them only satisfactory for service is because reservations must be made either on-line or during the day since the phone rings into the city building and is only answered during business hours. There is no cable and we were not able to pull in any stations by our antenna. Wi-Fi worked well once you got through the hassle of downloading their program to check for anti-virus. All utilities were conveniently located and worked well with plenty of water pressure. Our only complaint is they have a two-dog limit. We foster and rescue tiny dogs and never know for sure how many we will have with us at any particular time. I really hate these restrictions because I don't understand how three or even four small dogs could cause as much disruption or make as much mess as two 70-pounders. We will definitely stay here again any time we can meet their pet restriction. - SandyA

This gem has become our home away from home in the summer. Beautiful campground nestled right on the banks of the Kentucky River. Sites are concrete and level with concrete patios. Full hookups right where they need to be and super clean. It's a fairly new park with a LOT of pull-through sites and several back-ins. Our favorite sites are the back-ins that are overlooking the river. I've always paid in advance on their website or called the office as there's nobody on site that I've ever seen. Every now and then a City of Carrollton truck might wander through (the park is city owned) but that's about it. No hassles whatsoever. Carrollton has several good sit down restaurants, a Walmart and a Kroger, so almost anything you'd need is just a few miles away. If you're feeling adventurous, take a trip across the bridge to Madison, Indiana where you'll find more mighty fine eating establishments, antique shops, cafes, etc. - sixtires58

Nice little park right in town about 15 minutes from Kentucky Speedway. It appears this campground is brand new with generous paved sites, hook-ups in perfect condition, and a walking trail along the river. Very neat and clean. Small trees will need a few years before they provide any shade. Smooth paved roads throughout the park. Wifi was excellent since we were here in the off season, good Verizon reception, too. Couldn't reliably get any over-the-air TV stations. Large shopping area about 5 minutes away. - 4forsmores

This park is located in a closer area to all the attractions that are available to see in town. We were able to have WiFi, which made it easy to help navigate town. We paid a $5 deposit for a restroom key, which I did not mind as it kept transients out, it was refundable. We were told that showers were nothing to write home about at the start. They were acceptable for showering. We have a class A and were told we could either pull in or back in depending if we wanted the view or not. Would return to this campground as the view is worth the price. - gypsy561

1. Horrible Bathroom/Shower (that you have to leave a 5.00 deposit to get a key). The conditions of the facilities is not acceptable. I wouldn't take a shower here even if I hadn't bathed in weeks. Water dripped on my head, from the ceiling skylight, as I used the toilet. Just BAD! 2. Standing water and mud everywhere... our campsite flooded with a small shower. 3. THE CRAZY bright street lights over every site... blaring all night long!!! Really, this is not camping! 4. The spaces are so tight that you can reach out a touch the campers next to you... our neighbors started slamming car doors at 6:15am on Sunday morning. Once I was awakened, I started counting... 40+ door slams before these idiots pulled away and left. Simply unexplainably rude!!! I know this is not the campgrounds fault... but, this shows you what kind of visitors you'll find here. Pro: The camp host was nice and tried to help us with a good attitude. - Clayton Turner

While there are sites on the north side of the one campground road, the sites on the river side are by far the most popular. The Ohio River is right outside your rear window (or if you pull a motor home in nose first, it's right outside your front window). The campsites, themselves, are way too close together putting your neighbors on either side just a few steps away. If there's any redeeming point about the spacing it's that each site is at a pretty hard angle making your "front" yard also your neighbor's "back" yard. If everyone just uses their front yard there's enough room for you to use the picnic table and set out some lawn chairs to watch the river. However, if your neighbor in a motorhome happens to want to pull in nose first that scheme is messed up and you end up with the front door of their RV matching up with the front door of yours - creating a shared front yard. On the other hand, the utility hookups actually support this approach because the water/electric hookups are on every other site. If you get an even numbered site they are on the normal, driver's side of the rig (when backing in). Otherwise, you either pull in nose first or you have to pass the hose/electric under the camper. There are no sewer hookups in the campground, but there is a dump station. The campground has for-pay WiFi. We didn't use it as our Verizon signal was a strong 4G. Also satellite TV was easy to get - after all you are basically aiming it out over the river and there are no trees in play. The bathrooms are old and worn but reasonably clean and in working condition. Because of the public nature of the campground (right along a city street) you pay a $5 deposit to get a bathroom key. The number of sites is limited so, if you are coming during the busy time of the year I strongly suggest you call ahead for reservations - especially if you want a riverside spot. - nazpaz

Stayed here two nights while visiting friends in the area. Very nice family park with lots to do. nice pull throughs and back in sites. We have a 40' class A DP with 4 slides, towing Ford Flex. Many choices for sites that we could fit in. - Gurleymon

This property is a State Resort Park because it has a lodge with hotel rooms, a restaurant, golf course, and cabin rentals. Kentucky classifies its resort parks by these amenities, not by how well appointed the campground is. Knowing this distinction in advance will keep you from being disappointed.
General Butler offers a campground that is quite serviceable. Nothing too fancy, just decent place to park. We were here during Thanksgiving and family members stayed in the lodge while we were at the campground. For this type of get-away General Butler was perfect, and we spent 3 comfortable nights here. - Flying Mantis

Not sure why all the good comments on this park????... First of all if they did not list it as a resort and did not list it as big rig friendly I would not have stopped here. For a State park it is ok but do not say it is a resort. First of all it is very tight to get around in. I had a very hard time getting my 36' 5th wheel turned around at the end of the full hook up loop. The sites are also very short and many are hard to get into with a larger RV. Now once you are in the water hook up is a long way off, so make sure you have lots of hose. I have a 75' and a 50' hose and used all of it. This is the case for a lot of the sites. Also they have a sign saying if there is a yellow tag on the post the site is reserved. Almost all the sites had yellow tags??? We were there Tuesday night ....the yellow tags were for the weekend??????? Now lets discuss the copperhead problem. Evidently it is severe enough they have a sign up advising you to not go out at night with out lights to the point they will loan you a flashlight if you don't have one????????? I'm not sure if this is the reason the shower houses were closed or not. - steelpony

Very nice state park campground. Spacious sites with gravel pads. Asphalt interior roads so nice for riding bikes. Electric only sites which is pretty typical for Indiana State Parks. Stayed for 3 nights during Madison's annual Chautauqua, which is a very nice arts and crafts festival. Several nice hiking trails within the park. Our site was very level, but not so true for some of the other sites. - Daryn

We arrived on a Sunday for a two night stay and had to pay $9.00 entrance fee after we paid about $30.00 a night on reserveamerica.com. The park is beautiful but were informed that the waterfalls weren't running since they need rain. Our site was level but next to a dumpster. We were also informed that we needed to fill our tanks with water since no water is at our site. The restroom/showers were very outdated, buggy, moldy and dirty. The showers and sinks had a system were you had to continually hit the button for water to come out. Shower had no hot or cold options. We rode our bikes to pool area and sign stated $3.00 per person. This park really nickels and dimes you everywhere. We liked the wildlife and enjoyed the fire flies in the evening. - JESUSisLovefl

This is a nice and spacious campground. The spots are not too close to each other. In the middle of the electric loop it is very open and there is not a ton of privacy. The perimeter sites are very nice and private. Sites 18-25; 34-35 are shaded and nice. Site 35 might be the most private spot in the park. Site 34 (ours) is also very nice and private. Also the tree on the left side (site #34 - as you look at the site) is now gone. Most of the non-electric (tent area) is mostly very private and may sites are shaded. Some of them are really nice, but would be tight for any trailer of size. - kettlebelle

This park is about 15 miles off of I-71. It is on a winding dangerous one lane country road with many sharp twists and turns. A truly nerve racking drive after several hours on the highway. When we arrived at 6 PM there was no one around. Some sites were closed down for the winter. We had to search for one with water. Store/reception run down. The nicest thing about this campground was the signs directing to the park. Once there it was down hill fast. I would never stay here again. - murph164

Love this park. We only stayed 2 nights and wish we had more time. We picked an electric only site, and had the entire section to ourselves. Well maintained, friendly staff, a small camp store and office. Stop at the office before going to the campsite. This place is huge if you are a hiker. Lots of trails. Sites are very spacious. - fulltimerjan

This is a very nice campground in a hugh state park located near the Ohio River and about 30 to 40 minutes across the river from Louisville, KY. It is easy to find and the roads are state highways. Once inside the park is is quite a way back to the campground due to the very large size of this state park. Check in is at the park visitor center located a mile or so on the right hand side of the road well before the left hand turn into the campground loops. Don't miss either turn into the visitor center for check in or to the campground as there is a lot of road to cover if you miss. Check in is easy and the park folks are very friendly and helpful and have lots of information. The roads inside the park are all well paved roads and are quite wide so no problems getting around. Once inside the campground area pay close attention to the site signs as there are several loops and it is fairly easy to miss a turn into your site area. Our site was a back in and was easy to navigate. Our site was level but some sites may need a little levelling but nothing major. The site sizes are mostly very large but your neighbors can be seen in the distance. Sites are paved and have well kept grass around. All sites have fire-pits and picnic tables. There is no pad for the picnic table or your chairs as the paved pad is narrow. We had a full hook up site and all the hook ups worked well. We did request a site change to a site with a little more shade and the park folks easily accommodated us over the phone. Our Verizon cell phone services worked fine and we were able to receive quite a few over the air TV stations. The park is well maintained with lots of hiking and has a ramp for boating access. This is probably the nicest park to stay if you are visiting the Louisville area. There seems to be plenty of restaurants and shopping not to far away. Over all we enjoyed the park and would stay here again when in the area. - WOLFTRACKS

Nice, clean park with asphalt roads and pads. No paved patio area unless you get a handicap spot. Some spots are not as level as others. Some sites have some nice privacy, while most do not although they are all fairly large sites. Nice grass and trees around the campground and was good for dog walking.
We had strong Verizon, lots of OTA stations and our satellite worked fine. Not many people there even over the weekend, and very few on Sunday night.
The only hike we did was to Rose Island. Be aware it is a very steep paved path from the parking lot to Rose Island. Easy to go down but not so coming back up. Take the ranger station phone number with you and call if you have trouble making it back to the parking lot. They will come get you and take you to your car! We took the guided tour and they will drive you both ways if you like. We enjoyed walking down and riding up.
Easy drive to Louisville to see the sights there. We would stay again. - thekites

Stayed here as an over night stop an a recent trip. Only had electric hookup. Dump station and water available. Deep, wet grass. Area needed mowing real bad. When I made my reservations I was quoted $30, but when I arrived I found that since it was race weekend, the rate was $75. They finally accepted the $30 rate I was quoted.
The camp sites are basically electric hook ups in a cow pasture. I had to use 4wheel drive on my truck when pulling out the next morning because my tires were spinning on the wet grass. - arkansasmel
Jul 2015 - $30.00
This is basically a cow pasture turned into a campground. If you have a large RV it is not the place to stay. Also it is right across the street from the main railroad between Louisville and Cincinnati. Trains run all night and there is a crossing there so they blow the whistle 3 times. No sleep! There is only electric at each site so IMO it is overpriced. Sites are all tall grass, so pray it doesn't rain or you're stuck. Will not stay again, will boondock before staying there. - Ljbtn

Sparta Campground! Our 2nd time back! The owners are two of the loveliest people we have met in our lifetime! We stayed on Snob Knob (due to a little oversight on the owner's part). It was a quick switch to a different site & we had a wonderful couple nights with electric & water hook-ups! The train is loud and can wake you up, that is for sure (but it is dark & quiet down in that valley at night, otherwise). The property that the campground is situated on is an old tobacco farm & in MY opinion, it is simply gorgeous!! The hills that roll up around the campsites are covered with tall trees & it is the country AT its BEST!! We loved this short trip to Kentucky & our black lab had another fun time! Thanks again to the owners & their gracious southern hospitality! - patti&charlie

We stayed one night while traveling in December. There was no one at the office so we called when we arrived. Both back in and pull thru sites are available. Some sites have full hookups designed for winter use but we couldn't use them because they only had back in sites. We drove a class A with a tow vehicle and didn't want to unhook. We filled our water tank from the spigots located on either side of the office and hooked up to electric. A pool is on site for summer use. There isn't much shade and they are close together but the sites are concrete, you get a picnic table, and we didn't have to unhook our tow. Some pull thrus had a lot of water laying in front of each site. We wouldn't stay long term but it was nice for an overnight. - Tammy7

We stayed 3 nights. Paid $38/night plus 5% tax. Total was $39.80/night. Reservation process was quick and easy. We had to change our dates after making our initial reservation. The staff was very helpful and made the change for us without drama. Check-in was fast and efficient. Our site was spacious and level. All hook-ups worked perfectly. We were able to obtain Verizon cell, Verizon Mifi and DirecTV signals. We didn't have much time to explore CG amenities but did enjoy a few walks around the park. It is clean, safe, quiet, well-maintained and, quite simply, it is a very nice place to be. Fellow campers were friendly. If we returned to the area, we would definitely stay here again. - GottaGoNow

We stopped here for two nights on our way to Ohio and loved it so much we stopped on our way back. Very clean and well maintained. Laundry room was great. Spacious sites with cement slabs and roads are paved. Would definitely recommend this park for an overnight stay or a week long stay. - Coach Perry

We've stayed here numerous times, and have never had an issue. Most sites are level and easy to get in to. Plenty of hiking, fishing and boating for the family. Plus, the beach has an area for swimming in the lake.
Electric only, so make sure your water pump is working properly! - Griffin226

On a positive note the lake is beautiful and the playgrounds are nice. However camp host did not keep dog on leash and it came barking and growling at my 3 year old. We had to pack up and move campsites because the 2nd day 4 families showed up and set up 5 tents in the same campsite beside us. There was no peace. The bath houses are old and need updated badly. The girl at the front gate was very courteous and the DNR officer that gave us a trail map was great, and very helpful. Probably will not return as there are too many other state parks in Indiana that are much nicer. - patch2361

Our first stay here and will definitely return. Very large sites, most if not all of the sites are level with some shade. Lots of water faucets around the campground for fresh water. Several nice trails on the property, large lake w/ boat rentals, playgrounds and on-site naturist providing fun activities for the kids. There is also a raptor rehabilitation center on-site that is open to the public. - zenasboy
