2 Parks near Bowling Green, Kentucky
Aug 2014 - $40.00
This is an older park. I should have been warned when we phoned to find out if there were RV sites available and the lady replied "Yes, there are only about 20 RV down there." 20 RVs in a park with 300+ sites during the summer. We paid $40 because we wanted 50 amps. There are very few 50 amp sites. The first one we tried did not work. Some of the sites are not level. The roads are narrow and one way. The sites are narrow. The road layout and the map were difficult to follow. With the one way roads and maze of roads we had to drive around 15 minutes before we found a suitable site. - WEW

Ugh: if we're ever in the area again we'll be camping somewhere else. Precious few sites available with shade and those that exist will be occupied by long-term campers. The rest of it is a glorified parking lot. Very confusing layout that does not match the campground map. Paved sites are narrow and utility hookups are old and/or in need of repair/replacement. The sewer hookup was simply a hole in the ground being held open by a rusty pipe. The best thing I can say about this CG is the bathrooms/shower facilities were relatively new, housed in a pole building. It was clean but evidence of low-budget fixtures and construction was everywhere. Office staff was very polite and helpful when I called and when we checked in, but I should have known better when they said we didn't need reservations. - RamWagon

I would not camp here again. I camped here due to the Amusement Park being on the grounds. That was a joke, one roller coaster and a few twist and pukes. The waterpark was fun until the rain stated and ended our day. The campsites were packed in like sardines but there were not many people here. Each site was pull through but on the grass with dips and holes in most spots. There are no fire rings and no place to really put a fire. When it rained (and it was heavy rain) many of the spots were soaked as there was no drainage. The restrooms were clean but there was no mirror in the ladies room. This was just not what my impression of it was ahead of time. It would be good for smaller kids wanting to go to the amusement part, and a one night stay. - foe3643

We rented a cabin for our anniversary. This was our first time ever to stay in a cabin. The layout of the cabin was fine. We noticed some hair on the sheets that were on the bed. At our request, the office brought new sheets and left them in the cabin for us. The pool was ok, had a lot of bugs and a foul odor. Also noticed mouse droppings in the drawer in the kitchen. - The Frizzell Family

We were traveling through Bowling Green, KY and decided to stop and stay for a few days to check out the town and do a few things. So I got on my iPad to see if any RV parks were around and it brought up KOA so we have stayed at some KOA's before so we thought we'd go check it out. Big mistake!!! First, we go to see if any spaces were available and the lady behind the counter was not accommodating at all. She was acting like we were inconveniencing her by staying there. She was not friendly at all. At first I just chalked it up as thinking sometimes people just have a bad day. As the conversation went on I realized she was just not the type of person who should be working with the public especially at a RV park. My husband and I just looked at each other and shook our heads, but we were tired and ready to just relax so we just paid for our site and went to park. Well we had to drive around the park twice because some of the roads are not properly marked. When we finally found our site it was a terrible site. The site was uneven and where she put us was not what she told us. No shade at all and that's the first thing we told her we want, shade. It looked like they just took an extra part of the park and through some gravel down and called it a site. The roads are narrow making it a bit difficult to maneuver our rig. Bottom line we drove right back to the office and got a refund. We have been full timing for 6 yrs and have seen a lot of RV parks but I have to say this KOA is horrible. I would not stay here if traveling or recommend this KOA. - pepstre

This was our first KOA experience. It is a decent campground, but it is horribly overpriced. When we first arrived, they gave us a different site which happened to be cheaper than what we paid for. After talking to them, they moved us to the one we booked online and said if we had wanted to stay they would have refunded the extra money paid. It is just weird, because judging by another couple we talked to and the reviews here it is something that they continue to do so keep an eye out for a switch.
There are tons of things in the park like a little pond with paddle boats, a miniature golf course, outdoor chess set, a pool and probably some other things I didn't notice. Every inch of land is filled with something. I did like the dog park, it was nice to let my girl run around after traveling on the road.
The spots are close together and SUPER close if you are parked next to a big rig. I could touch the slide-outs of our neighbors from the patio if I had wanted to.
The dumpsters were spilling out onto the road because they were so full. I don't know when the pick-up date is, but it definitely needs to be more often.
I would look around for a better value if I were you. It is doubtful I will go back to a KOA unless I have to. Bowling Green itself is lovely though. This campground is super close to everything. - toocoolfortulle
