Great place to relax. VERY quiet, no planes, trains, or highways. Wooded sites with lots of shade, lots of pine needles on your rig too. Trees can make maneuvering a little tricky. The fishing in Otter Creek is great. Lots of trout! Excellent swimming hole too! Shower and toilets were very old with lots of bugs and spiders. Would rate higher, but no site sewer hookups. Had to move rig to dump site every few days. Electric was solid till weather turned bad, then started having brown-outs. Staff were very friendly. Golf carts are allowed. Gravel sites are fairly level, but roads need repaving. This campground was built long before the big Class A motorhomes. Still, my wife, kids, and I can't wait to go back! Great value for your dollar. - mjngerti

We are glad Otter Creek has now re-opened several sections for camping. Both RV and tent camping sites are well groomed and the on-site hosts are friendly and helpful. Electric sites are mostly located in shady, wooded areas. This is a good hiking area--trails thread along the creek and beside the Ohio River. Horse and biking trails are also available. A well-provisioned YMCA camp is located within the park. Our only complaint is about the entrance gate - the newly rebuilt entrance has a very narrow curbed lane that's such a tight fit we weren't sure our medium-size RV was going to fit through. No reason at all to build these curbs so close together! Nearby to Louisville and easy to get to via Route 31. - Flying Mantis

This park is a local gem to the Louisville area. It has been closed for several years due to budget cuts by the City of Louisville but reopened under the management of Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife sometime last year. I've been camping in this park for over 25 years and this was my first visit back in probably 10. Amazingly, it looks almost exactly the same as when I left. The management has been putting a lot of work into this campground. First, I noticed that all of the electric sites now have a dual 50/30 amp pedestal. Many of the water hookups have been replaced. I did not get a count of sites as many of the previous water/electric sites were supposedly abandoned due to deterioration of the electrical service. In reality, it wasn't that good when I was there 10 years ago. However, they are putting in new water in that area and they may install new electric, I did not get to talk with anyone in charge. There is some construction of concrete pads of some sort going on and again, I'm not sure what that's all about. The beauty of this park is that it is very quiet and rustic. Many large trees and lots of shade. There are two separate pavilions. One has camping around it, so that would be great for a family get-together. Some sites are not very level, but most are no problem. There are three "buddy" sites that are off by themselves that would be great for a few friends camping together. They have electric and water hookups. There are no sewer sites, although there is a dual dump station that is easy to access. Lots of paved roads are great for bike riding and golf carts are allowed. The park is convenient to Brandenburg, KY which is a few miles down the road for shopping and a stones throw from Fort Knox, Radcliff and Elizabethtown. Louisville is about 20 miles away. The reason for my 6 rating is the park still needs some work. There are a LOT of trees and if you have a big rig it takes some care navigating around the park. There are several trees right beside the road that would be easy to clip if you're not careful. Also, some sites would be impossible to access with a larger rig. We have a 40' motorhome and it was slow going all the way into the park. Right at the entrance to the park is a guard shack with electric gates. The gates are very narrow. I cleared them with about a foot on each side to spare. Also, the road coming into the campground has many overhanging limbs. If you stay to the center of the road you'll be fine, but if you meet up with another rig exiting, someone better stop. Also, we were allowed to do a late checkout at 5:00 p.m. which was a nice bonus. I have lots of memories camping at this park with my children over the years in a multitude of different camping rigs. I was happy to see the park back and nearly as I remembered it from years ago. It's a nice place. - sixtires58

A great camping spot for military eligible folks! There's a stocked fishing lake a short walk away too. I didn't see any boats or a boat ramp. As others mentioned, wifi & phone service are real spotty. We mostly had 1 bar or no service with ATT and Verizon was about 2 bars at best. Many of the 50Amp sites are good for satellite but most of the 30Amp sites are deep in the trees. You can only reserve the 30Amp W/E only sites but you can take a 50Amp full hookup if available when you get there. They still require you to give them your Social Security number when checking in which really irritates me. The Army is so slow moving into the 21st century! We had a long pull thru full hookup which was nicely spaced from our neighbors and easy in/out. Three sites were fully paved and the rest are gravel. Most sites are big rig suitable too. Trees needed trimming going into the 30Amp W/E area but those sites would take any size rig too. There's a camp host for after hours support. - Danno

We stayed here six nights and will stay here again. Only down side (some will say up side) is there is no cell service at all and the internet service is very iffy and slow when it does work. Were able to get a few cable channels; don't know about sat TV. The laundry and restroom/shower facilities were the best we have seen anywhere. The sites are large and clean. There is a creek and a lake on site and fishing available if you have a permit. Staff was very helpful. Campground is not on Ft Knox but is military only. About six miles to the Fort and 20 to Elizabethtown. We also went to Bardstown and Glendale; scenic areas especially with the fall colors. There are also a number of distilleries within reasonable driving distance. Would be a 10+ if our phones worked. - Delbert

This is a wonderful campground. Most of the spaces here are gravel but there are a few cement pad spots also. All very level. Staff and camp hosts very friendly and helpful. There is a small lake at the back of the park for fishing. No swimming is allowed in the lake. Easy access into the park and big rig friendly. The restrooms and laundry room are modern and very, very clean. There is also a room in the facility for meetings, dining, etc. that has a refrigerator, TV and book/movie exchange. I would definitely stay here again. - Bubzug

This park is not on the Fort Knox military post, but it isn't far away. This was my second stay at this CG. The last was a few years ago. Wi-Fi still iffy depending on how far from the office and how many RVs are between you and there. You can sit in the rec building and use a laptop if you need strong Wi-Fi. Cell service is also sketchy. I had to go outside the RV to get one bar. Utilities were good. There is a mixture of concrete and gravel sites. Most are level. Not all of them will allow for satellite reception due to trees. The rec building is nice, is in the middle of the park, and contains laundry, satellite TV, and a book/movie sharing library. I think laundry was a buck per load. There is a stocked lake next to the park. The staff was friendly and helpful. Only the W/E sites are reservable. They offer a discount for Golden Age/Access card holders which I used. - RLM

This lovely park is a hidden jewel convenient to Ft Bragg. Sites are shaded with picnic tables available. The bathroom facilities are clean and new. The park is near a stream and is part of a public recreation complex that hosts baseball, soccer and other community events. There are active railroad tracks bordering the site and trains do roll through at night with horn but it didn't bother us. You pick your site and pay on the honor system at the city hall around the corner from the campground. The city hall has a huge parking lot. While we were here there was a family reunion and they had 40' and 35' Class A rigs that fit fine. There are walking trails and you are close to a gas station and the downtown if you need to walk to get some supplies. A WalMart is 10 minutes away. - BarbaraJohnson

After reading the reviews for this park, I decided to update it. I have been at this park for a bit over two months. When I pulled in, I was a bit worried about it. It is a spot in a trailer park set aside for RVs. There were 4 other campers in the area when I pulled in. It is obvious that most of the people in the campground are there for what I call long term (over 2 months). After talking to the staff, all of my worries went away. They are very helpful and courteous. I have not experienced a problem in the electric, water or sewer. There was an evening that I came back and there was a crew working on the water pipes, I asked how long it would take, and they told me that they should be done in an hour or so. (Half an hour later I had water). There is no propane service on the campground: less than two miles north on US 31W there is a propane filling station. There is a grocery store within walking distance (less than half a mile), though I would recommend on driving to it, since it is a highway. There are probably nicer-looking RV Parks within an hour that offer more services/amenities, but there are none that are closer to historic FT Knox than this one. This one is also right off of US 31W, which makes it easy access to fellow travelers, and to folks working in the area for a short amount of time. I am leaving the area in a couple of weeks and look forward to returning to this campground when I come back. - jw117

This park has "slum" written all over it. There were numerous trailer homes parked in the RV area - including some that were rusting pretty bad. We washed a load of clothes in our rig and the sewer backed up. - 2Bucks

This is a older Mobile Home park with about 6 full hookup sites. There are a few more sites but they don't have hookups. The RV section is separate from the mobile homes. Sites are not numbered and it was hard to find the water and electric hookups. Some sites need an extension for the electric cord. There are no restrooms/showers. There is a laundry that is very inexpensive. Grass hadn't been mowed for some time. Manager advised that they were going to fix up the RV section. It's very obvious that this is not really an RV Park! They offer $15 a night to Passport and Escapee members. All others are charged $30. I would never consider paying $30 for this park. $15 was actually too much for this one. - Montana RVer

We have camped here before. Not much has changed a little cleaner maybe. Very good power. It was an overnight stay this time. Easy on and off I-64, about 2 miles away. - ragsland

The campground is mainly occupied by long term stays. We were there for 3 days and no one ever checked on us. We were the only ones in our area; we did ask to move due to the space we were originally asked to go in was not big enough for our rig. The place is run down, not well kept, trash laying around, old run down campers sitting with weeds grown up all around them, grass is long and a lot of weeds. We counted 6 copperhead snakes, however, the campground does sit on Indian Creek. There was a sign in the not so clean bath house, which consisted of a toilet, sink and shower, that stated to clean it up or lose privileges to it. We did not use the bath house. It looks like at one time it may have been a nice place; It's a shame. The Good Sam discount was only $1/day. Most of the shops in the town were closed by 4:30 on Saturday and not open at all on Sunday. Did I expect more for $50/day? Yes, I guess I did because I have received better for the same price and less. There is obviously no pride in the ownership/management of this campground :( We will not go back and not recommend it. - Snoopzq

A small run-down park. The cost was $40. plus $5. for each dog. I have never paid for my dogs anywhere else we've stayed. There is no place to even walk them. Would not stay here again. - Joe Bounder

Very nice park, site was wooded, level, paved and close to restrooms. Indiana state charges for everything. $7 entrance fee, in addition to camp fees. Plus $5 each person per day for entrance to pool. Caves are closed, but others nearby. Mountain bikes trails are for experienced riders. - Edna jones

We have stayed here three times in the past. All three times were enjoyable. In the past we were able to attend the Wyandotte Cave guided tours, but the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has closed nearly all the caves in the state in order to protect bats from a disease that is killing them off. However, the tour through Indiana Caves was well worth the price of admission. The sites vary from very level to very unlevel, but most people did not seem to have extreme problems getting them level. The sites in the "A" portion seemed to be the most level. The restrooms were dated, but clean. Trails were poorly marked so that could use improvement. The water park was very nice especially with two grandkids in tow. We were there during the 1850's haypress demonstration and pioneer village reenactment which was interesting, but can't take the place of the cave tours. - Dewey Smith

The park was very scenic. We stayed at Site 35. When reserving it, we were told that the site was level and that slide-outs were allowed. Upon arriving at our site to set-up, we quickly realized that those statements were not accurate. Our site was not level by any means. In order to level out our 30' travel trailer, we had to lift the camper almost 6 inches just on the door side of the camper to make it level from side to side. Since we have a slide out, due to the trees, we were not able to back all the way into the back of our site. As a result, the steps of RV were not the asphalt pad. There was at least 20" between the ground and our bottom step. This made it VERY DIFFICULT to get in and out of our travel trailer, especially with our 90 pound German Shepard, who had to be lifted up and down the steps each time. It was also dangerous for our 5 year-old. I do NOT recommend this particular site to anyone with a slide-out or a larger RV. It may be okay for pop-ups and for primitive camping. On a positive note, the campground was very nice and the staff was very polite and friendly. The State Park itself has an extremely nice pool with waterslides, kiddie pool, splash area and a nice-sized regular pool. The admission for the pool is only $2/person, which was more than worth it. - Penny C

Very nice little place right on the bank of the Ohio River. Quiet and peaceful. They had a little laundry room, but we didn't use it.
The road coming in was narrow and a little bumpy, but manageable.
There are 2 rows, the Inner and Outer. The inner is on the river bank and cost 10$ more. There were very few shaded sites in either row, but it seemed the outer had a little more shade. All the sites are back in.
The Camp Store was closed the whole time we were there, (and looked like they had been for a while)so be sure to get your supplies before you get there, it is 20 miles to the closest real grocery store.
There was almost no phone signal (Verizon)...I could get a text out sometimes. The WIFI was pretty good, except on weekends. Also we couldn't pick up any tv channels, even with our booster.
There were 2 restaurants close by.
All in all it was a good value. - GranNan06

A hidden gem located in Leavenworth Indiana, right on the banks of the Ohio River. A little hard to get to. The entrance road is one lane and twisted. But the locals go to allow for incoming Rv's. We even had a local driver show us the way to the park. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Full hookup sites with gravel base. There was a large flat area for games and family events even the play area for kids with swings and slides. Totally peaceful and serene. Enjoyed watching the barges go up and down the Ohio River. - oldguyinrv

Great little campground on the river. Vary nice people running the place. The only thing I did not like the road into the campground it is a little tight at times. Mostly Shady, dirt sites, Picnic Table, and fire ring. - This Old Man

This is just a parking lot of a somewhat shabby fleamarket. We camped here as it was close to Churchill Downs and the Louisville Slugger Museum and there are few options nearby. There were electric hookups, no water. Bathrooms were old and not very clean. Area is dicey- they do have locked gates and security staff drove through every hour. We had no problems. An OK place to stay for the night if you want to be close to things in Louisville- just not really a campground. - johnsonj

Convenient parking to Louisville and Churchill Downs. You are in the parking lot of a large flea market that based in old warehouses. Neighborhood is a little dicey with many strip joints along the road. People working there are very friendly and helpful. Rate was for a 30 amp hookup in the off season. No water available at our site due to freezing temps. Rate for derby week is $650 for the week. They were completing wiring for 50 amp while we were there. - glenthompson

This park is an overnighter only. The sites are so close together our neighbor had to move his feet so we could hook up our sewer. I would still stay here again. Roads are good for our 42' fifth wheel. Would recommend getting a better sign. First time we stayed here we missed the entrance and had to make a u-turn. Even though close to interstate, still pretty quiet. - Jack&Wanda

Pull thru site, but barely room to walk between campers. Washers in laundry took our money and wi-fi did not work. Staff unfriendly. Bathroom dirty.
Dogs allowed, but several mean signs about where they could be walked.
We stayed here because family was close by despite the bad reviews, and regretted it. - WendyJayne

This is a small family run campground, nicely kept, and they take pride in their place. the park has good asphalt interior roads. Sites are fairly level pull through and gravel, with a small concrete patio. The problem with the patio area is that it is next to your neighbor's water and sewer hookup. There are no picnic tables. If you have a dog, you have to walk outside the park. There are signs everywhere about being evicted, with no refunds for violators of the dog rules. If you stay a week or more, they require a $25 damage deposit. That is in case you leave cigarette butts or cans on your site. We had a lot of butts on our site when we pulled in, so obviously they don't check well. There is no playground or pool, and they don't want children riding their bikes in the park either. This park is convenient to Louisville via I-65. The laundry area was clean and well maintained. One road to enter the park people also use to access the Flea Market and they ignore the stop sign, very dangerous! We would stay here again, as it is the most reasonably priced other than the State Park. - Vicki K
