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. We camped at Bowling Green KOA in a Travel Trailer.

All sites appeared to be gravel topped. Our site had a nice patio with nice furniture. Weather was perfect for sitting outside under the shade trees while visiting with friends. No satellite due to trees though. Sewer connection was a little far to the back of our site so could not use however we were only there for one night. Very quiet at night even though the close proximity to freeway. We camped at Bowling Green KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Did the Corvette factory and museum tour.

I wonder how KOA stays in business. I generally try to avoid them but for location this was best. Electric in the section we are in is pretty poor. Showers are cramped, dirty and old. Trees are in need of trimming. There are many workers that need to go to work early in the morning with loud trucks. Some semi homeless families with children in junk trailers. At least they don't get up early. This is over priced for what it is. On the plus side the wifi works good. They must keep after the live-ins because I see little trash around the sites. I would probably try to find something else if I returned. We camped at Bowling Green KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The Corvette museum is great.

As usual, this KOA is like most KOAs, old, narrow one lane roads, lousy speed bumps and the leading road to the park is very narrow and busy for a large motor home. We've been on the road for three years now and, as yet, we have stayed in ONE KOA that was a really nice park. You pay top camping dollar for this and most KOA camps and they don't add up to the price. We are not impressed. We camped at Bowling Green KOA in a Motorhome.

Have stayed here several times, always good. The water, electric , sewer, and cable were good. The sites are gravel but level. The staff is very friendly and after hours check in is really easy. This exit has everything you could possibly want in shopping or eating. We will stay here again. We camped at Bowling Green KOA in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
