13 RV Parks near Bowling Green, Kentucky

Many reviews seem to show two experiences at this KOA. One is open and sunny, but near the interstate with lots of road noise. The other is shaded and quiet. My experience was the second. The reason for this discrepancy is because the KOA is built right next to the interstate and appears to have added on in later years. That addition doesn't have the trees the older part does and it is closer to the interstate. So, if you end up back in the newer part, it will be louder and less shaded. The older part of the park is quite relaxing and considerably more quiet. With all of that said, I would still plan on coming back to this park, even if we end up on the new side. The campground itself is clean and well maintained and the city of Bowling Green has a lot to offer. Also, it's positioned very close to all the shopping, grocery stores, and activities. It's right in the middle of it all. The biggest downfalls I found were that our site did not have a grill and the fire pit didn't have a grate. So, for outdoor cooking, we went to another campsite. However, the concrete patio easily made up for this shortfall. - Andrasek

We have family and have stayed here multiple times. The staff is always friendly. We did notice this time that they have really improved the grounds maintenance. - RMahaney

The first night was a premium spot because we called to come in a day early. The next week was still a pretty awesome site, and it was next to friends. Staff was nice, even gave us a bag of cucumbers and squash from their garden. It rained a lot the week before we got there so everything was muddy/soggy, including the dog park. Nothing against the park at all. We stayed here last year in the A loop and that was much tighter. We enjoyed this year's visit much more. - DaBlairs

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 just stayed here one night on our way to our final destination. However, I would go back again. I have never seen a campground that had an amusement/water park on its property! There is also a race track. The Good Guys had a show there that weekend and it was fun to see all the cars. The track did close down at quiet time and we had no problems with any kind of noise. We only had one issue and maybe this was because it was off season but no one showed us to a site. It appears to be first come first served and the lots are not well numbered or at least not easily seen. We wanted 50 amps and those are sprinkled thru out the park and again with little or no signage. However, there is lots to do at the campground and the Corvette Museum is close by. - Let'sGo!

A beautiful COE park! We had a site right on the river with plenty of room. A volunteer camp host came by and gave us information about the area. We stayed here while visiting Mammoth Cave. It is also close to Bowling Green for groceries. - geode

Very well kept CG with outstanding attendants and host. Most sites shaded and many on the river. We really enjoyed and will return often. - Jackson Dial

Ok for an overnight stop. I called and made reservation, seemed to be a little confusion on arrival, left hand didn't talk to the right. But owners were very friendly. Spaces are tighter than what we like, fairly level sloped forward some. Very tight turn to exit from my site row, but I think I could have gone to next road and been better. Did hear a dog bark for hours late in the evening at one of the seasonal/permanent sites. Fairly clean campground, didn't use the restrooms. Probably wouldn't stop here again. - FTatcret2013

Restroom/shower rooms were immaculate with chairs. Very clean. Staff was friendly. No wifi or cable and internet has a fee. Spacious pull thru sites. They do music on Saturday night. - MamaBird

Great convenient location relatively close to Mammoth Caves with outstanding and very friendly and service oriented owners. Would strongly recommend this RV park that offers a family like atmosphere. - DiscoveryOne

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 5 days in C area. Very nice well maintained Park. Security took me by available sites in a golf cart and we discussed available amenities then chose a site. Will definitely stay here again. - Hobbes

This was just an overnight stop while traveling on I-65 so we did not get to see all the caves and etc that the area has to offer. The setting is very nice and the campground is in a hilly area. This place is 'big rig friendly" - sort of. The roadways are tight and the lot spacing and driveways are close. Do not attempt to drive thru here with the towed vehicle still attached. Seemed pricey given that there is no OTA TV available, no cable and only spotty WiFi. - rv time

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

This NPS Park is really beautiful! It's dry camping at its best. Shade everywhere, quiet, clean, and friendly. Our 28' Allegro had enough room to maneuver the loops, but be forewarned, tree limbs are everywhere. Light scratching to your rig may occur. A $5 bundle of firewood bought at the camp store will last about an hour or so. No outside wood should be brought in due to the emerald ash borer bug. Didn't need the showers, but the price is now $3 for 10 minutes. Dump station and potable water are available at the entrance at no cost. 2 sites at the entrance are full hookup, but $50 per night. Lots are really large, all are paved. Quiet time 10pm to 6am was respected. - mjngerti

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

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. - Kristin78

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. - texasAUtiger

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. - MNJessieJ
