This campground is excellent! Large sites, sites on the outer edge of the loops had good privacy. Sites on the inside of the loops not so much privacy. Bathhouse is very clean, as well as the laundry room. We stayed for three nights and visited Mammoth Cave N.P., ziplined and toured the towns in the area of Mammoth Cave. This is probably the nicest campground we stayed in during this trip. Highly recommend the campground. We camped at Nolin Lake State Park in a Tent Trailer.

We've camped at this park for 10 years & up until this last time we camped, we've had no complaints. The grass hadnt been cut on the entire side of the campground we were in. We got there on a Thurs & stayed until Mon & the bathhouse had not been cleaned until Sun evening & only because we complained to the attendant about it. Even then, it was not cleaned well. The floor was mopped but hadn't been swept so the dirt was just moved around basically. They weren't just dirty, they were unsanitary. The attendant tried to say they'd been cleaned everyday but there were things on the floor & the commodes that were there every single day & wouldn't have been had they been cleaned. It was obvious they hadn't been cleaned and in days. It looked like there was mold in the shower stall walls also. Until this last vist, the park was always very well kept & maintained, we were very disappointed especially when we complained & instead of making it right, we were just told a bold faced lie. We camped at Nolin Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Off the beaten path. Nice and quiet, right off the lake. No internet service & no stores close by so bring what you need. Has 2 small restaurants fairly close by that are pretty decent. The sites are a good size & the lake & bathhouse arent too far from any of the sites. Has a designated handicapped section but only a few sites available there. Sites are level & flat like the rest of the park. Has a nice playground for the kids and a basketball goal plus a volleyball net.

The park was beautiful, well kept, and quiet. Could have used a better view of the lake, but we got the impression that they were trying to keep a buffer zone around the lake, so that's OK. Our site was very large and level! It's a long way to the store, but that's a plus if you plan ahead. We camped at Nolin Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A smaller CG fairly close to Mammoth Cave NP. The grounds are well kept as are the camp sites. Bathroom lacked hot water which is the only negative. We camped at Nolin Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Camp site #2 is our favorite. No lake view but we feel we're really camping alone out in the woods. It's nestled nicely among the pines with great space between the site next over. Site is level, very fine gravel, almost cat litter like, but it was great for our toddler daughter to "draw" on with some sticks she found. Roads within campground are paved. Good hiking trail nearby. Campground is small, only 32 sites, and books rather quickly. Not much nearby so bring everything you need! Staff was friendly. Grounds are well kept. Firewood and ice available for sale on site. We camped at Nolin Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed 2 nights in site #25, an easy back-in site with W/E right on the water. This park is far enough off the beaten path that I would not recommend it for a one night stop if passing thru on the interstate. We were there to visit Mammoth Cave NP so it worked out for us---although please note that the entrance to the national park is all the way around on the southeast portion of the NP so plan 45 minutes to get there. Stop at the campground attendant booth to get a map with the best route to the visitor's center---do NOT go by google maps. We had no cell service but did pick up 2 OTA TV channels. The bath houses were just okay. This is a pretty park with very nice sites right on the water. We would recommend this as a relaxing getaway. We camped at Nolin Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The bank fishing looks good, but couldn't get any bites. The park ranger told me that you need a boat to get where you can catch much.

We enjoyed camping at this park immensely and even added a night. We used the park as our base to visit Mammoth cave. Be aware it is about a 45 minute drive to the Cave. The weather and our campsite were so nice we felt pulled to maximize our time there so all of the long driving on windy roads (through what is very pretty country side) made it worth it. The campsites are setup nicely - large, gravel and mostly level sites will accommodate some pretty large RVs. A nice fire pit placed away from the camper, electric and water in the right spots. The dump station is pretty good, except it was obvious we were tipped the wrong way when pulling in. It did work just fine in the end, though. Bath building nice but a fair distance from some of the sites. Three showers in each and laundry on the opposite side. The primitive sites are in a different area near the swim beach. Very nice area for tenters with a few up on a hill overlooking the lake. Some tenters did use the RV sites as well. Of the lake sites, ours did not really have a lake view (29). Some did, plus a few in the middle ring seemed to also snag a lake view because of placement. On the long stretch entering campground, site 2 is the bed for it's nice placement among the pines. The campground office is not always staffed but they are very easygoing and friendly, so proceeding to your site and getting a car tag later is just fine. Wood is $5 a bundle but we also found in on the road leading in for $3. The roads to drive in are newly surfaced but really no shoulder, winding, long and more slow going than you'd like. Which is why the not very long drive to mammoth takes 45 minutes. If you do want to deal with all the that, Cave Country Campground in Cave City would work. From our perspective, the park is not what we'd say is easily accesible. Dodging trucks loaded 2 wide with round bales over the middle line, no shoulder with a large travel trailer = white knuckles. We camped at Nolin Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

If new to area, check the roads before heading in. Site 2 shady and those around loop offer some nice shade (17-32). The actual RV sites themselves are all the same (nice) - large gravel area with table and fire pit.

We pulled into Nolin Lake state park expecting great things. Mostly, we got them. The site was only gravel, with a lot of prickers around it, making it difficult to walk around with camp shoes (Crocs or sandals). The site was nice and long though, with plenty of space for our 35ft fifth wheel, and even enough space to pull our 20ft truck in at the front, which is a rarity among most campgrounds. There was no campground Wi-Fi plus weak cell service, and, me, being very attached to my technology, was disappointed. Do not let that affect your idea on this park... that was just me. Went to campground showers for most nights in fear of our gray tank filling up (no sewer hookup) the bathhouses and bathrooms were VERY well-kept, and we enjoyed long, hot showers with flawless temperature control. AMAZING PARK WILL RETURN. We camped at Nolin Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Our third year visiting Nolin Lake SP; it has become an annual trip for us because of the draw of the serenity of the lakefront sites. This is a small park, with nicely kept grounds, in an out-of-the-way location. We like the fact that the park has restricted the boat parking to the parking lot, rather than them being scattered all along the roadways. I understand that's not as convenient for those with boats (I guess...), but it sure improves the character of the park. There is NO AT&T mobile signal at site 21; Verizon does work. OTA TV will get a few channels at night, with our new TT having a signal booster (the previous unit received nothing). Webb's Grocery is 3 miles away for necessities. Camp office sells ice and firewood (and laundry soap...of all things...they don't have any W/D... weird). There is a boat rental facility called Moutardier Marina (prunounced Moody Deer ;-) on the other side of the lake that is very affordable for pontoon rental and is about a 20/25 minute drive from the campground. There are also a handful of little country diners on that route. For the quality of the site, with waterfront view and access, with W/E hookup for under $30/night, clean facilities and nice folks, we think Nolin Lake is hard to beat. We camped at Nolin Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Travel tip: if you're coming from the north, go west on the WK Pkwy out of E'town, to Litchfield, then south on SR259. Using the suggested GPS route from the Mumfordville or Upton areas (from the east, off I65) will result in a drive with lots of hilly corners and shoulder-less county roads. Trust me on this one.

Mammoth Cave is about a 20 mile drive, many folks come to Nolin Lake SP to visit the cave.

This turned out to be a great time of year to visit. The price reflects a "By One Get One" discount. The lake was beautiful even though it was not yet at summer pool, plus the trees were not leafed out yet so we had a nice view of the water and rock formations. This must be on a flyway, we woke up to so many different bird songs every morning. The sites are spacious and our site was level. Our fire pit was full of ashes but someone came out right away to empty it for us. Also, the trail head is very close by, nice hiking. Only (minor) drawback is that we had no AT&T service, which is to be expected. You can get service about 3 miles up the road. We camped at Nolin Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here and visited Mammoth Cave and towns nearby on Hwys 65 and 31. The drive to Mammoth Cave was about 20 miles. There is not a Walmart close. The grocery stores in Brownsville will have everything needed. They will not be open very late though. Nice place to stay for a visit to the Lake or Cave. A long way from I 65 for a one night stop over. Site 5 was easy in for our MH. Could not lock on Dish 119 due to trees. We camped at Nolin Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Site 19, level, a little grass, gravel, good spacing

Bathroom and showers nice, clean (lazy slobs are the ones that ruin them)

Great spot right by the water's edge. Nice park overall. Looks like a great lake. We camped at Nolin Lake State Park in a Truck Camper.

Tips for other Campers:

We arrived late afternoon, went to Mammoth Cave the next day, which was okay, stayed the night (so 2 nights total). The lake looked like you could really have a good time, especially with a boat. We like water side (or at least views). This site had it's own little "beach" and would be perfect for little ones to play in (however you aren't suppose to get in the water except at the beach).

The park was clean and well kept. Sites are large and level. Plenty of room between the sites. There are no pull thru sites but we have plenty of room to back in. No local stations were available through Direct TV. The host was friendly but not overly helpful. We would definitely stay here again! We camped at Nolin Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Mammoth Cave, KY - Nolin Lake State Park - Great state park! Sites are very large with a good amount of spacing between them. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring and the driveway and patio are made of the fine gravel. Some sites have view/access to lake for fishing. Site are W/E only with dump station. Have bath house looked nice but did not use. Have basketball and volleyball and several places to fish. Outside the rv part of campground is a beach and primitive/picnicking area as well as a boat ramp. Verizon signal was decent better than expecting. Roads getting to park are your regular roads to a lake so no surprise and in good shape. Have a very small selection of items at registration office and sell firewood and ice.
