Nice, level sites. Everything as you would expect at a KOA. Short nature trail with a pond. The driveway into the park was very narrow with a ditch on either side. It looked like some people had problems keeping out of the ditch. We camped at Bowling Green KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is convenient to interstate 65. It is well kept. We booked a site that was shaded and close to the pool, but when we arrived we were given a site that was out in a sunny field, hard to park our RV, and was not what we were expecting. However, the office staff was very accommodating and moved us to where we initially were supposed to be. There was an Airstream rally going on at the park which may have been the reasoning for our displacement. When we were moved, we had a nice shaded site with a concrete patio close to the pool. The fire ring was a small tire rim that we didn’t use. WiFi and cable were good along with our AT&T cell phone signal. We also had good signal strength from out satellite dish. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Bowling Green KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed here multiple times. We stayed here during the 20th Celebration of the Corvette Museum. This camp ground did not raise their prices like most local hotels did. They have cabins lodges, and one new "double" lodge. The RV site we stayed in was level, and shaded. They do have cable but due to our lack of remembering how to set it up, we couldn't get it on this trip. Staff is friendly. Antenna worked fine and you do get several channels. Site had a stamped concrete patio w/patio table & chairs, fire ring. Restrooms were clean and staff was very friendly. We had a few of our Corvette friends over for a campfire and they were very accommodating. We definitely will be back. We camped at Bowling Green KOA in a Motorhome.

This CG is close to the Corvette plant & museum. Sites are gravel and flat. Utilities are excellent and properly located. They are pet friendly and have a large dog run. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Bowling Green KOA in a Motorhome.

This campground has sites that are wooded and sites that are not and require satellite. The staff was perfect and it was a great overnight convenient stop with many restaurants close to the campsite. We camped at Bowling Green KOA in a Motorhome.

The park was OK. We stayed three nights in the back section near the interstate and it was fairly level and quiet. Very large pull-through, with fire ring, picnic table. There are a few trees but mostly open in the rear section. More trees up front, which would make the satellite hard to use there. Cable and pool were OK. My daughter loved fishing in the free lake. I would stay again. We camped at Bowling Green KOA in a Motorhome.

I called ahead for a reservation. I was given no choice in type of site. I indicated 40 ft RV with tow and 50 amp. We were placed in a premium patio site at $50/per night . I was not happy to see many less expensive long pullt hroughs sitting empty. So beware if you make phone reservations! Typical KOA that is overpriced for amenities provided. Park is quiet, roads and sites clearly marked. We tried to walk the nature trail. It was Very natural that disappeared into unmowed weeds with no indication of trail. I liked this park better before it became a KOA! Have stayed there many times through the years . We camped at Bowling Green KOA in a Motorhome.

Staff friendly and nice. Rather disappointed in our visit – no escort to site but the roads were clearly marked, which helped. Grounds not kept up with trimming, etc. Water connections about a foot below ground in a PVC pipe – had to be on hands and knees to connect hose in the tight pipe. Sewer connections way high - sewer does not flow upward very well. Many seasonal units intertwined with transient guests but many of the seasonal units were cluttered with debris, unkempt sites which took away the overall appearance of the campground. Found a timer on the showers, which is OK, but there was no way to control temp of water, therefore did not use. We paid for a deluxe site but did not have a fire ring. Overall the campground needs general updating. Campground is very close to restaurants, gas stations, and grocery stores. We will have to think twice before visiting again if in the area. We camped at Bowling Green KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Good base camp location to view sights in town. We stayed in a gravel pull-through site near the entrance. It required one layer of blocks to be level. Noise wasn't a problem but might be if in a different park location. Very nice city public park across the street for walking or fishing. Utilities were fine (water, sewer, elecric) and sufficient room was available for entering and exiting site. Cable works well but two local stations may require use of antenna. Wi-Fi worked at times but usually would fall back to iPhone hot spot for Internet use. Our site was shady and cool. Cost seemed high for amenities received, probably because of lack of competition in the area. Would stay here again but usually avoid KOA due to onerous cancellation policies.

Stayed 2 nights while visiting Corvette plant & museum which is in close proximity to park (8.5 miles). Lots are mostly large pull thrus with picnic table and fire pits. Water and sewer and WiFi were good, however, park has limited cable stations. Lot's to do at park itself and we would recommend. We camped at Bowling Green KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We gave it a 7 because of Interstate noise. We (two rigs) were in 109, 110 and the end of the park, very close to the interstate, no trees, and a huge trash pile. Other sections of the park were quite nice as other reviewers have said. Also, we were in a "deluxe" site with a concrete patio between the rigs. That was $5 extra. We camped at Bowling Green KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Nice older KOA park reasonably close and convenient to I-65. Office and check-in area renovation in process. Pull-through and back-in wooded sites with level gravel pads and a few premium sites with concrete patios. Cable TV and Wi-Fi was good. OK for traveling through or a weekend. Rates may be a little high for area. We camped at Bowling Green KOA in a Travel Trailer.

It is a well laid out, pretty park with a lot of potential. We've stayed here three times in the last six years, every time there has been some serious issues. TV cable that doesn't work, water hookups that are plugged with filth, trash all over the site, piled-up trash in the fire pit, septic drains backed up flooding the sites with sewage. In general the park needs basic maintenance. The folks that run it are friendly and willing to help if you ask, but the trash needs to be picked up and repairs made to broken amenities. Unusual for a KOA to have so many issues. We camped at Bowling Green KOA in a Motorhome.

This was an exceptionally equipped and well-maintained park and conveniently located. The staff was very professional and friendly. My single disappointment was that, although available, the Wi-Fi signal was weak. We camped at Bowling Green KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We had a nice long, level, gravel site with a comfortable amount of space on either side. The campground was about 50% long term resident sites. Their season was wrapping up so there were very few nightly guests. The park is located right next to a highway, so there is some noise. The folks running the place were nice. Bowling Green is a very attractive, clean city with every convenience you could want. Lots of restaurants, beautiful university. The KOA is located right across the street from a large public park with a very large pond for fishing. There is a small catfish pond on the grounds of the KOA, as well. I'd stay again if we were passing through, but wouldn't think of this park as a destination. Typical KOA higher prices for a lot of kid friendly services.
