Nice park, with friendly and helpful people. The roads are paved, as were the sites. Being from out of state, we had to pay $9, for a permit to enter the park. This was a one time fee we paid for the week we were there. All the connections were easy to locate and easy to get connected. We noticed that some sites had patios, but we didn't. Our site had a picnic table and a fire ring. All the sites we saw had picnic tables, while some sites had fire rings and some didn't. Satellite and OTA TV worked well, as did out AT&T phones and hot spots. We did find that when leaving the campground, our GPS wanted us to turn left on the main park road, to get out of the park, but there is no park exit that way. There is only one way in and out of the park. If you plan on being in the park near Halloween, you might call and see when they are doing their Halloween celebration, as they allow trick or treaters, and they close down traffic in and out of the campground, so the trick or treating can be done safely. This is a nice touch, since it is the first park we have seen that allows trick or treating. We would stay here again. - Bbtj

Great place to stay if you need to be near Louisville, Kentucky. It's just up the road but very convenient to either the east side of town (over the toll bridge) or downtown (over the regular bridge.) Both full hookup and water/electric sites available. Verizon service is good and there are a few OTA TV stations available. Full hookup sites are large and only minor leveling is needed. - DD Jones

Nice park. Well maintained. Not much to do here. There are 5 hiking trails and that's about it. Staff very friendly. - Rocky Farmer

Hard to rate. Great if you like rustic. It's affordable and peaceful, but there are lots of bugs, restrooms are dated, it's 30 amp only, there's no sewer (except site 1), and the "dump station" is a challenge to use. Trails were so overgrown as to be unusable. Pads are extensions off the edge of the parking lot/boat ramp. The online registration will allow you to park a 45' rig on a 15' pad, so use your best judgement. I think sites 2-5 are 15' long and the rest are 20', but you can hang off both ends a few feet. On the other hand there is usually availability, AT&T and Verizon worked well, and despite all the trees I could get satellite. Staff stop by often and everyone was super nice. - Keeping up with the Joneses

This is a nice county park just a few miles from town. I was in the area to visit an old friend so the location was perfect. Facilities are older, but not run down, it looks like they do their best to keep the place up. The campground is small with a limited amount of camping pads. I got the impression that it is mostly used by locals for weekend camping. - Mark Ford

We stayed in this lovely little campground for a week and had a peaceful, relaxing stay. The park managers were hard working, very helpful and accommodating. The sounds of the waterfall over the dam and geese calling to each other was more than we expected on this trip but coupled with the Kentucky hospitality of our hosts at the park, by far one of our greatest trips. This Michigan family is impressed! Try it! You will like it! - Georgeann

Nastiest manager you'll ever meet. Trash everywhere. Dangerously exposed wires and sharp rusty pipes coming out of the ground in play areas that said manager refuses to remove. Floods every time it rains. Mud and dead grass everywhere. All concrete pads are crumbling. It is a stone's throw from 2 interstates which are VERY LOUD. Water is off more than it is on sometimes. The office is closed more than it is open and did I say the nastiest manager you'll ever meet? Go somewhere else. - HoosierRV

This is a mobile home park that is converting some spaces to RV. The site conversions are not exactly RV friendly. Narrow concrete strips for the wheels, the jacks are on soft ground and the sewer is located under the RV. The streets have many speed bumps, many of the remaining mobiles homes should be removed and it is very noisy. There is constant noise from I-65, train horns several times a day and night, and the occasional plane traffic; not a peaceful location. We stayed here for 3 months while working for Amazon; the cost of the site was paid for by Amazon. This may develop into an acceptable RV park in a few years but it will always be noisy. The park is on the northern outskirts of Clarksville so shopping and other services are a few miles away.
The sites are level with broken concrete patios and grass areas. No tables or fire rings. 50 amp electrical.
The water is good quality city service but use a filter. The pressure fluctuates, especially in the morning.
There is no park provided cable or wifi. Service may be obtained from Time Warner. Typical OTA channels.
There is no laundry, pool, showers, park activities, etc. The staff is helpful, when asked, but otherwise they are rarely seen.
A mailbox can be purchased from USPS. UPS and FedEx deliver here, but have difficulties locating Lakeview Dr.
We will probably not be stay again as we have no desire to work for Jeffersonville Amazon (SDF8) again. - Wiyndog

This is a nice stopping point for a night or two. Easy in and out and 1.1 miles from I-65 in Southern Indiana. They have 4 spots, but 2 are occupied by other campers that don't seem to be moving. Very nice neighborhood around the Lodge. They are open everyday at 11:00 and serve food all day. You must be a Moose member to camp here and enter the Lodge. The lodge is a non-smoking lodge. There is one water spigot for all 4 spots. We camped in the second spot and our hose was long enough to reach the water spigot. Each site has 50 amp service. There is no dump. The site is fairly level. - Cliff-fa-fa

Sites very close together! A lot of long termers but they were friendly. Very nice camp hosts that are very involved ensuring that park is running smoothly. Good wifi. Over the air TV was good. Check or cash only. - CSM Carolyn

Unattractive facility and lots of semi- permanents. Owners very friendly. Only takes cash or check.Odd sites but level with accessible and working hook-ups. . Good for overnight stay or for a few days if you're sight-seeing in Louisville. wi-fi good no cable. Did not use tv. Don't expect much. - Bosun

You're escorted to your site because it is so tight you couldn't see a number to save your backside! 40' fifth wheel - we had to be careful when putting out our awning - about 6" from neighbor's slide. Trains all night at the edge of the park, and planes land/take off overhead. On a positive note; a teeny bit better than a truck stop and staff meets you when you pull up to escort you and are friendly. The location is the only reason this park is able to fill up. Won't be coming back if we can even wedge out! Definitely not a relaxing campground - more of a place to park for a few hours sleep. - cajunsis

You're escorted to your site - because the park is so tight that you need it! 37' motorhome and when we opened our slides we had to be careful as they almost touched the next door RV. Had to move picnic table to open the slides. Loud trains all night at the edge of the park, and planes land/take off overhead. On a positive note, the park is within minutes of Louisville and the staff is friendly. The location is the only reason this park is able to fill up - and the only reason I'd stay here again. - Tiara38

This is a very crowded park and one we will probably not return to unless it is for a one day stay. We were escorted to our site. There is a convenience store and gas station onsite which is handy. You are close to many attractions. Our Dish satellite and Verizon worked well. - rolling homeless

A little bit out of the way for an overnight stop, but it filled the bill. It must fill up in the summer with campers who enjoy boating and hanging out on the weekends. The sites are in a grass field with good hookups for each. Since the sites are on grass, there is some rutting at the sites and the dump station. The man doing the check in was friendly and helpful. The restroom/shower room was clean. We avoided the first turn to that leads up to the campground from the marina (a bit steep and between trees) and went the long way around towards the back of the campground. - LatLongJohn

Don't follow the GPS, it will try to take you through a subdivision. Follow the brown signs once you get into town; they take you straight to it. The interior road was narrow with speed bumps, so while big rigs could get in there, it wasn't the easiest to navigate. It was super muddy, and made for difficult entry/exit of the rv. There was a very 'nature' smell everywhere - okay, it smelled like dog poop. Our rig was too big to use the dump station; couldn't make the curve into the pullout. - DaBlairs

We were in site 12 and it was spacious and very close to a nice playground, great for our toddlers and our space was big enough to throw frisbee to our two medium size dogs. Nice neighbors. Only rating at 9 because when it rained and it got super muddy but I guess campground can't keep the rain away. - TravelingSnook

What an awful place. Then again, this isn't a campground; it's basically a few spots in a parking lot that have hookups on the side for RVs. How they get away charging so much is beyond me. I guess most of the folks who use the sites particulate in events at the expo center, arena or the amusement park next door (which shares an entrance gate). The design of the hookups is atrocious as the water was on one side, the electric was about 50 feet away on the other side and the sewer was in the middle. The sewer was also encased with a metal plate - we needed a screw driver to pry it open. We had to park at a really strange angle to get everything hooked up - it will be a real nightmare hitching back up due to the angle we're at. There is only an attendant on duty who didn't seem to know much of anything except how to run the credit card. The office he worked in was a 6x6 box with no windows and filthy (like a mechanic's office). The adjacent rest rooms and showers were no better. This is also right behind Kentucky Kingdom amusement park so it was very noisy with music blaring. Also in the landing path for the airport, so constant planes flying overhead. We only came here because due to a huge hot rod rally in town next week, everything else was booked up. We could only stay 2 nights anyway, as this area will be cleared and we'll need to move to their dry camping area, where all the hot rodders will be. - cherylbrv

Used this park because of it's location in the Louisville area. It's really not an RV park. It is a large parking lot with hookups. Most don't have sewer but a few do. There are no amenities, only hookups. The parking lot is used as the midway during the state fair in August. Other times it's available for camping. Most campers are there for some kind of a function on the fair grounds. Would probably be a good location for the Derby. - vidcity

Been going there for the last ten years to work shows at the fairgrounds. The facilities are always filthy with little or no maintenance. This year was the worst. There was no, repeat no, water anywhere in the RV park at the Kentucky Exposition Center?'s RV park with which to re-fill our fresh water tank in the RV. Not only that, but the shower/restrooms at the RV park were such filthy swill holes that just stepping into them made me think I needed to burn the shoes I was wearing before stepping foot back into our RV. No way would I use the facilities. Therefore we were unable to shower for four days. Only able to wipe down with a damp paper towel to freshen up. We got a tad ripe in those four days. To add insult to injury RV parking at the Expo Center costs $50.00 a night!! To further cause aggravation for RV owners trying to stay there when the Expo Center's crews cleared the RV parking lot of snow they pushed the cold, white stuff into mountains over most all of the RV parking spots. I would add that the pork producers, the fish frying folks and the chicken frying folks, all of whom work in the sheds located in the RV lot, had no water either. This meant that they had no way to wash up after using the filthy restrooms and no way to wash pots and pans or grills they were using. I'd be surprised if none of the food patrons at the Expo Center didn't get deathly ill after eating there this last weekend. - Jim C.

Park is right across the street from Church Hill Downs. Kind of tight for a 40' 5'er but fit-had to back in from the street though. Not a bad neighborhood. We stayed there almost 2 weeks for the fair. Owner is very friendly and helpful. Was quiet at night. Would stay there again. - reviewer3

We didn't actually stay here, but we pulled in and looked around. Posting this review since I've seen others ask about it. Trackside is directly behind Churchill Downs, and the lady we spoke to on the phone was quite friendly. Those are the good things. On the other hand, it was basically someone's backyard with some older hookups, in what appeared to be a somewhat sketchy area. It was fenced in, though. The handle on our water hookup was broken, and the sewer hookup was under a broken piece of cinderblock. We decided to leave, but it might be okay for a couple days if you're looking for the closest possible park to Churchill Downs. It was tough backing our 31' in from the street, and around the back of the garage. - NH Camper

This is not a campground. It at best is an unattended parking lot. The location is in a very shady part of town. You have to pull a large RV through the hood to get to this place. The place is unattended and messages left on their phone were not returned. IMHO, this place should not be listed as a campground. We left because we did not feel safe in this area of town. Maybe it is different on weekends when the flea market is operating but then all you migh have is electricity. I did not see any other facilities. - Ras2

A most unusual experience. I knew from researching Louisville, that there weren't a lot of top notch locations in which to stay. We picked this Derby Park, site of a large flea market on the weekends, and we made the mistake of arriving during the flea market. The supervisor came in his car and guided us into a large grass and dirt parking lot with electrical boxes on the fences. It is used mainly as a camping spot for RVs during the Kentucky Derby. We plugged in along the fence but then noticed that this was also the parking area for the Haunted House attraction that night. The manager, who really went out of his way to help us in every area, and is to be commended, suggested that we move our rig down to the other side after the flea market closed and we would be away from the Haunted House. We did that, but were surprised in the morning to have our RV surrounded by cars, and a farmer selling chickens and live roosters to a multitude of people. This park is located in a very seedy area, but amazingly we experienced no problems. As nice as the manager was, we will never be back. There were no other RVs that even tried to stay here. Electric only. I heard there was a dump station but with so many cars there, we left. - elduque
