7 Parks near Berea, Kentucky
Jul 2016 - $26.00
Pros: Easy on/off from I-75, and only $26/night.
The woman at check in was on the phone and helping me, but she put me close to the one bathhouse, and a little shade, which was an upgrade without changing the price.
Cons: Showers only had a short bench for your stuff. Had to try 3 showers to be able to control the temperature. Shower head is 8 feet up so no adjusting it.
Didn't seem to be a lot of vacationers staying; mostly full timers. - kidphd

Older campground at Exit 78. Has a small store and hardware store next door. Laundry, two swimming pools, large tent area and RV storage. No WiFi while we were here. Easy access to I-75 or historical area. Spaces close together, old-tree shade covers half the park. Workers occupy the side of the park opposite the pull-thrus. Local car wash next door. Fairly quiet even though it is off a busy highway. It rained hard while we were here but the water drained off quickly. We spent 3 nights there. - Ginger C Brown

Very small spaces, the adjacent site's sewer hose was right next to the picnic table. Their "rules" state pets must be on leashes and never left unattended. But several cats were running loose, and two dogs in an outdoor pen(also against the rules) and another two small dogs came running after us as I walked my dogs. Maybe long term guests don't have to follow the rules. Would not recommend this park to anyone with pets. - Ljbtn

We spent 3 nights here exploring the great town of Berea. Not the best park but it was quiet. No sewer & dump station does not have water. No wifi. Worker met us and directed us to our spot. Pull thru sites. Only water & electric. Full hooks with sewer were all full with what appears to be full time residents. Same rate with or without sewer. Not sure we'd stay here again. Looks rough all around. Needs a good grooming. We stayed in a motorhome. - Lazyp123

Not a bad park by any means, we've stayed in far worse. But pros and cons about balance out.
- Close to interstate and Walmart and lots of fast food restaurants
- Friendly and helpful managers
- Neatly mown and clean grounds
- Good price, $25 for water/electric or full-hookup sites. Unfortunately all full-hookup sites taken by long-term RV's.
- All sites easy to get in and out, mostly pull-thrus.
- No full-hookup sites available, all taken up by long-term RVs
- They have a dump station but there is no water available to rinse hoses
- All buildings rather (to very) run down.
- All bath/shower(?) rooms stay locked, cannot access.
- All ground very flat so if rainy weather there is some standing water
Overall not a bad park for overnight or short stays. - rdkeith

We arrived in rainstorm and paid cash to owner who greeted us in her truck. It appears she may have been on her way out when we arrived. Handed over cash with no paperwork and took pull-thru for the one night we stayed. Hard to judge the campground since everything was muddy and full of puddles due to the rain. Wi-fi was iffy. - Da Keeffes

We had a nice big site with nobody else close. Utilities worked well. Wifi poor. Unfortunately, this KOA is like too many that are showing their age - many sites too small and not level. Steep climb to get in, but fortunately it was one-way. Nice playground for kids. - padre

The park was pretty nice, and even though the pool was fairly small, it was clean and nice. There was a Christmas in July event with Mr. And Mrs. Santa and make your own sundaes for $1. The road into the campground is a little steep, but not too bad. Our site was uneven, but still okay. We would stay there again. - Ginny H

I was apprehensive about choosing this park after reading some of the reviews. However, I was very pleasantly surprised. We did not hear any highway noise either inside or outside the coach. While the entry and exit roads are a bit steep, I had no problem entering or leaving the campground. Our rig is a 41-foot motor home, and we unhooked the toad after entering our pull-thru site. The site was level so that my automatic leveling system worked fine. I do not agree that big rigs should avoid this campground.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The manager stood by and watched my dish antenna search for satellites. He said that we could move if I could not receive a signal. However, there was no problem, and our site was indeed satellite friendly as I had requested. He also delivered our forwarded mail to our site. I had forgotten that I had mail forwarded here, and may have left without it if he had not brought it to me.
I am giving the campground an overall rating of 8. My rating would be 9 if I had been able to use the Wi-Fi. Although, I believer that the campground was more than ½ empty, I had to use my Verizon Wi-Fi the entire time. We stayed here for 3 days, and would definitely stay again if we were in the area. - CarlW

The campground is very easy access from I-75 as it is right off the highway with good roads. Internal roads and sites are gravel and were a bit dusty as it had been quite dry when we were there and campground and sites were easy to navigate. We drive a 45ft MH with a tow and were able to navigate the park and site without difficulty. As previously noted, the campground is across the road from the ticket office where one registers. There is a section of the campground for seasonal rentals and another section for overnight stays. There are three different lengths of sites in this section with several being 100 ft. Utilities and sewer hook-up were good and site was level. No amenities to speak of but an easy overnight stop. Wifi worked fine for email and internet surfing. We would stay here again. - LvR

It was a bit confusing on where to check-in. The campground is on your right as you are coming down the road from I-75, we drove through, and there was no place to check-in, we pulled out and noticed another sign on the right, telling you that check-in was on the left side of the road at the ticket office. Once we checked-in, (and they do not carry change, if you use cash!) we drove back out to the campground. A small park, with long pull through gravel sites and roads. Site was level, good hook ups, and all worked as expected. Some sites are shorter than others, but we fitted without having to unhook the toad. Interior roads are a bit narrow, but easy to navigate. WiFi worked great. This is a beautiful area and will be back to explore another time! - Vicki K

Although this is just an open field type park, the spaces are wide and gravel. The Internet, water, power, and sewer work fine and it is easy to get in and out of. There are lots of shows and museums in the area. - Jimjul

We have stayed here twice and have always had a wonderful time here. They have a ton of activities to keep the kids busy, access to the Kentucky River, and the pool is wonderful. Most of the sites are going to require some sort of leveling, as most of them are slightly off level. All sites are paved as well as the road. AT&T cell service is good. Sites 1-26 are full hookups. Some sites will not have access to satellites due to the foliage. - jmcmanama

Nice site, pads are on the short side but sufficient. Can see Kentucky River from our site thru the trees. 50a power, shared water hookups with high pressure- recommend not fully opening if you don't have pressure regulator on your rig. Nice facilities, bathrooms are typical for a state park- clean but older. Several dumping stations available. Would come again, good value. - CandKand2Dogs

This is a beautiful state park. We used their junior Olympic pool several times and it felt great! We rode around the park, but didn't visit the Fort...then found out that the pool and the Fort would be closed the next day so we moved on. This is very pretty and full amenities except for sewer in our pull through. - Ginny H

Looks like at one time it was a nice park, sadly run down and mostly 'permanent' residents now. Very nice staff, looks like they are doing what they can. - Kbtx

We were here over the Fourth of July weekend so we tried to take that into consideration, but there were some things we couldn't overlook. First of all, the staff was wonderful and couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. They stopped by our site several times. Unfortunately the actual campground itself was in need of some desperate repairs. Across from our site was an old shower house (?) with a port-a-potty in front. The shower house was inoperable so the port-a-potty was the only bathroom for the 30+ people on our end of the camp site. In order to use a sink you had to walk all the way to the entrance. Our first night we were awoken at 11:00 by a chainsaw one of the other campers was using to cut their firewood and our next door neighbors were setting off mortar fireworks that were raining down on our RV. There were cars parked EVERYWHERE and the tent site below us kept driving their truck through our site and parking it next to our chairs. The second night wasn't quite as eventful. The woman next door was walking around without her pants on and they also had visitors so there were at least a dozen people crammed on one site. If you need a place to stay near Nicholasville then this is pretty much the only option, but I would try to stay somewhere else if possible. - coldwaterconch

I hate to be totally negative so, the 50 amp service was good. Wi-Fi was okay, but charged for each day. Hookups on wrong side of RV. Park Very run down. Lots were part grass part large rocks. Lots of old, I mean, Old trailers. We had reserved 5 days, when checking in changed that to 2. After 1 night, we left, they did refund the 2nd day lot rental. Staff was friendly. Would not camp here again - dj4pres
