Older CG that could use some maintenance. Attached to an amusement park and race track of some sort. Our electric had one standard outlet and one female extension cord end to supply 2 sites. Pull thru sites separated by about an 8' strip of grass. Not a place I would choose to spend several days but OK for any port in a storm. Wi-fi on $5/day paid basis. - ebaldy

Electrical in sites is VERY poor. Day time volts were 100 to 108, night was 110 to 118. Right away my AC tripped due to low volts and I had to run on my generator. (this is a known issue). We only spent Monday and Tuesday there then camped the rest of the week at the ATTACHED drag strip. I was told it would cost $10, after she checked the price, to dump waste water Sunday after the event. When I showed up to dump on Sunday I was told since it wasn't an event of Dallas's it was $30. Sundays attendant informed me the person who checked and said $10 on Monday was wrong. It cost $35 to say during the week but $30 to dump? Two years ago they let us dump free after since they are connected. At least 90% of the 500+ campers that week showed up for the drag strip but they say the event wasn't connected to the campground. I will be looking for alternate lodging next Hot Rod Reunion. - Greg Iowa

Checked in and were told to park anywhere. Map was of no help. No visible site numbers. Sites had to share water hookup. Electric service was not useable. Voltage was low never above 90 volts. Had to run our own generator to run air conditioner. Don't waste your money here. Expensive boondocking!!! - Rkserv

We've stayed at this KOA a few times because it's very convenient for us when traveling. The staff is always very pleasant. This time we were in a pull thru site and it was pretty level. The utilities all worked well. The site itself was gravel with a very small area for the trailer to sit. The rest of the site was grass. After getting set up we noticed on the campground map it said not to park on the grass at the pull thru sites. It was impossible not to park on the grass on our site since it consisted mostly of grass. Therefore, we parked on the grass. Nothing was said to us. I'm sure we'll stay here again because we travel I-65 often. - The Other John Doe

Nice quiet park. Fairly easy to get to. Pretty setting with ponds available to fish in. Great commemorative air plane park across the street. Decent restaurants not to far. Plenty of room for our toad. - travlingtrio

We stayed at Bowling Green KOA because of trouble with out Travel Trailer. Dunlap RV was awesome in helping us get back on the road. We got a premium full hook up site that came complete with a concrete patio with a fire pit, bench and table with 4 chairs. This was a very nice touch. As far as cell service we had 4 bars for both ATT & Verizon. Restrooms and showers were clean. They were older facilities but were upgraded with new tile floors and tile on the walls. Laundry was good with 3 working washers and 5 working dryers. It was $2.50 for a 30 min wash and $1.00 for 30 min dryer. Our loads needed about 45 mins to dry completely so I had to add 2 more quarters to get the extra drying time. We will definitely come back when we can spend more time exploring the area and not fixing our Travel Trailer. - On the Road Again with Dave and Christie

Entrance almost not possible in a big rig with tow. The only pull through had trees hanging down dragging on the coach. The site was not level - couldn't get coach leveled. This park is attractive, but it's not for big rigs. - Jim and Lynda

I should not say anything can't say much good about the place. I saw every rule broken more than once. My two biggest issues were the speed limit with children playing in the road it should have been enforced Second is the free run of dogs, not on lease and uncontrollable Not little dogs but big dogs that make you worry. Seems attendant and host could improve this place but they were not active in the cg - Jackson Dial

Interagency 50% discount rate for two nights. Site was a level, soft gravel, back-in site with on-site water and 50 amp service. Needed 50' hose to reach the water connection. A dump station is available in the park. We had good satellite reception, but very weak Verizon cell and data reception. GPS routed us from I-65 to highway 101. It was a 16 mile drive on a very narrow road with no shoulders. Next time we will use Cumberland Parkway to US31E to highway 252. We would stay here again. - Dave51

As others have mentioned, a decent enough spot for a quick overnight stay, but that's all. Convenient to the highway and a fuel stop. It looked like most of the spots were filled with long term residents. Roads and sites were gravel and sites were extremely close together. One of our slides overhung the neighbor's picnic table. Neighbor found a large spike in his spot. - Jerry and Betsy

Easy on and off of I-65. Located behind a Pilot. Very convenient for one night. There is some road noise but not bad. This is an old KOA so the lots are very close to each other. We had a long pull thru and did not need to unhook. Good utilties but use a regulator on water as pressure is very high. Would stay again if passing through. - sammy32

Stayed at this park with a group of friends. These are equestrian/group sites and about a 1/2 acre each. There were several groups and several single families spread out over the generous sites. The large sites are very private and we had no trouble with a travel trailer, two tents and 4 cars on a single site. The loop is paved and there are generous parking areas for horse trailers and trucks. There are several adjacent hiking and biking trails as well as a charming dirt road down to an old Baptist Church in the woods. There was minimal evidence of horses but abundant wildlife. This is 20 min and a ferry ride away from the Mammoth Cave visitor's center and cave but it feels like its 100 away. RVs cannot cross the ferry so must come in across other roads. The toilets are well maintained pit toilets and there are no showers. I assume they would let us dump in the main campground but its over an hour drive to get there without using the ferry. Everyone was impressed with this little gem and we plan to be back. - Dennchristen

All of the COE campgrounds we have visited have been excellent, and Bailey's Point is no exception. Check-in was quick and pleasant. Our campsite in the "A" loop was long and level, with a large patio area. Roads in the campground are paved, while the sites themselves are gravel. Restrooms and showers are older but clean and well maintained. Some sites have unobstructed lake views, while other sites are well shaded with the lake peeking through the leaves. Sites had water & electric hookups, a picnic table, a fire ring, and a lantern stand. There is no cable TV, but there are a multitude of OTA channels. Verizon cell service is adequate, but there is no WiFi. There were two dump stations. While the road to the campground is narrow, it is entirely adequate for travel at a reasonable speed. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. - tnyankee

This park is in a remote area, but is beautiful. Roads are in good condition, but very hilly. Inside the campground roads are narrow and have steep drop offs on the edge. We stayed in site B5 which is not level. It has a four inch drop from one side to the other and has a very steep declining driveway. I had to use chocks on our tow vehicle when parking. This was a very busy and noisy park because lake access roads are so steep vehicles have to really strain to get back up hill. Rangers do patrol during all times of the day. We had to call about a barking dog and they responded within a few minutes. Good mifi, but no OTA channels. Satellite was being used, but you have to have a long cable. Water faucets are in a common area and I had to use two 60 foot lengths to reach it. They have two dump stations, but there was still a line on Sunday. - JC69

Some sites are a little short. We were on A3 and had to park crossways to get the truck out of the road. Also, some of the roads in the A loop are crowded by trees, so be careful if you have a long camper. The sites on the C and D loop are typically shorter sites. Some of the bathrooms need a little maintenance. Some of the sites right next to the water on the B loop are very exposed if you have high winds. Also no trees on these sites. There are typically a fire ring, picnic table, small table next to the fire ring/grill, but there are no stand-up grills on the sites. Otherwise this is another good COE campround. Good value. - Bama Camper

We stayed in site B-8 which had a concrete pad and I would not have needed to disconnect but we did to travel. The site has a nice concrete pad and all three connections were very convenient to the back of the trailer. We were close to the neighbors but they were very nice. Our awnings missed by about three feet so we had room. The pool was nice and warm and clean. We went to the game room/club house and relaxed for a bit and it is a bit out dated but comfortable and very clean. The park staff were all great and gave me a ride to the garbage dump area and to the laundry. As has been stated earlier it is not obvious you need to check in at the office which is on the opposite side of the main road before you enter the park. The office is directly across the from the park driveway. They used the golf cart and took me over to get paid for out trip. It is very convenient to Mammoth Cave and several others. - Wally Shreves

This is the second Thousand Trails to stay at since we purchased our membership. It's just okay but we would likely not come back. They initial site they suggested for us would have been a nightmare. Zero shade, front door opens to neighbor's sewer, and probably would not have been able to open our awnings. We chose a shorter site in the trees. It wasn't bad and all the utilities worked well. ATT service is basically non-existent so we purchased the premium WiFi for $5.99 per 24 session. That was a waste of $. Dropped connections and slow speeds. Some of the buildings were in need of some TLC. Playground and pool were okay. The tent area looked a lot nicer than the RV area. It is relatively close to the national park visitors center. - OpenRoadJedi

We belong to RPI which includes Encore, which is 1000Trails. This is typical 1000Trails. This being Encore which is the top of their line, it would be like a resort CG..NOT! This is not a resort by any means. But only cost us $10per/nt +$1 per/nt resort fee. Would NEVER pay their reg. rate. Front desk & rangers are the nicest people...but they don't own the CG. This CG is severely out dated, over rated & needs a severe facelift. The pool is nice and clean, decent size and busy. Our RV faces over grown weeds and forest trees. Neighbor on one side is like the rest in our row, permanents with lots of stuff all over. We are in 310. If you come here pending on the amps you need (we need 50), ask to be up front or in the center. That spaces are tighter but they are level. We are at the back by the back set of bathroom/showers/laundry building. Space 310, it is probably one of the most spacious and pretty level. So is 309 but it was taken. They will take you in a golf cart and show you what is available in the amps you need and you can pick your poison. Most are NOT suitable for Roof Mounted Sat Dishes. So on top of the $1 day resort fee (for not a resort) there isn't even a store here. They charge for wifi. We used our mifi w/ ATT as best we could. CG not ATT friendly. 1 bar, occasionally 2. Mini putt putt course is made with PVC pipes. Very sad looking, no players. The entire course is about 15x15ft. There are like 6 pull thru sites. They are not even close to being level. They are downhill & uphill, not level side to side. Would take 2 days to build up one side so that it would be level front/back & side/side. Some MH have to have one wheel off the ground so they can get the other side of their unit level. Picnic tables need serious work. Firepits are nice/big but inconvenient. At back corner of site. Can't sit around, would be sitting on side of hill below fire pit in neighbors space. Add pics later when gone from here in 2 days where we have ATT service.Roads are gravel and narrow. Disconnect towed before traveling through. Allowed to park towed beside RV on the Grass/weed area. - Victoria Grace

A lot of sites will probably fit Class C RV's but look tight if you have a Class A. There are a couple of sites that have electric but it is dry camping for the most part. Campstore is close with pay showers. Bathrooms are in every loop and cleaned regularly. The bathrooms are also air conditioned which is a nice bonus. Mammoth Cave Visitor Center is maybe 1/2 mile away and there is also access to the trails around the forest from the campground. Lots to explore and see. We had a pull through site which fit our 24' RV fine. If we had a tow vehicle that probably would have fit as well. - Bogie71

Great stop for cave tours. Dry camp only, but plenty of water faucets and restrooms nearby. Lots of trees, no satellite service. Spotty cell service. Lots of firewood stacked throughout the campground, free for the taking. It takes an effort to find a level friendly site. - rvrrat520

Great spot for staying while exploring Mammoth Cave. Campground is a short walk from visitor center where all guided tours of the cave start.
If you are into birding there are many different species you can watch from your campsite. There are also miles hiking trails but make sure you take an underground cave tour. We've taken two. and hope to to back and take another.
There are no hookups so if you need AC or water at your site then check the other campgrounds in the area. Just remember it's a few miles onto the park so you will need to drive in from other campgrounds.
During the season you will need to book your stay through reserveamerica.com. Off season (check with them for dates) you can usually just drive in and pick a site.
Sites are among the trees so there is plenty of shade on most sites.
Sites are packed stone and you will need to do some minor leveling on most sites if RVing it.
IMPORTANT!!! There is poison ivy growing on the trees at almost every site!!! Be especially aware if you have small children that may go near it.
This is a National Park so they wont do anything about it.
Campground has water, dump station, and a small general store.
I gave it a rating of 8 since there aren't hook-ups on the sites (although water and dump station are available) and there's poison ivy all over the place. - Old Radios

Sites on loop A are pretty large but are quite close to one another. Loop B sites are also close together and some are not very big. B also has more sites that would be a challenge to level. All site pads are gravel and have a very nice picnic table/fire ring area. All sites are E/W, but bring extra hose if you plan to use the water, since the water station for each site is shared with neighboring site(s) and could be pretty far from your intake location. Over the air TV signal good (at least in loop A which is higher elevation). Verizon very slow. When I was there, the grass was very long. Small swimming beach downhill from Loop A. Large marina and boat ramp easy walk from campground. - aowcarol

Nice and quiet state park. Kind of off the beaten path, but but was easy to get to. Paved interior roads and gravel campsites. Most had nice views of the lake, I would not mind staying here again. - Doxie Mom

Rate reflects senior pass. This is a very nice COE campground, sites and campgrounds were very clean, as well as the restrooms and showers and laundry room. I loaded the washing machine and put money in and the machine did not work. I reported this to the gate attendant and was told they weren't responsible for the machines and was told the lady that owned the machines would be by to see me. I suggested they put a note on the machine stating it was out of order and again was told it was not their responsibility. I never saw the lady that owns the machines and on our last day, there still was not a sign in the laundry room. It wasn't about the money, but rather the fact the machine did not work and they could have posted a note that it did not work so other campers would be aware. We did like the campground so we would stay here again if in the area. - stella fouche
