Campbellsville, KY - Green River Lake State Park - Nice campground, sites are a little close together but sometimes typical for state park. in part of the park they've had to cut down several trees due to ash boar. Electric (30amp) and Water hookups, dump station, picnic table and fire ring on each site. Didn't check out bathhouses ( but from previous visits were decent no ac/heat), have good camping store on site that sells few camping needs and ice and firewood. Also have putt putt and beach swimming area which was nice. Verizon and Att&t worked well. Have wifi to purchase if necessary. Golf carts are now allowed for a fee I believe. Public boat ramp and Marina close buy. Over all nice campground, would return. - CmcDowell

Regrettably, we did not enjoy our stay here. We can forgive a lot of sins at campgrounds, especially in state parks, but Green River Lake just had too many problems to overlook.
Here's some suggestions for planning a campground at a state park (and thereby criticism of Green River Lake)...
--The most popular campers and trailers are 35ft long or bigger. Don't make the parking pads only 20ft long.
--RVs come with slide-outs, which means they extend 4ft on both sides. Don't make the sites only 8ft wide.
--Most trailers are hauled by huge pickup trucks. Don't cram campsites so close together that there's no room to maneuver a vehicle or park it.
Compounding these issues we happened to be here during a week of torrential rain storms, tornado warnings, and flood stage water. Water pooled in all the sites, the beach and playground were submerged, and boaters ended up parking their trailers in the interior spaces of the campground.
In short, we didn't catch Green River Lake at its finest moment. But I still wouldn't return because of the parking-lot style layout of the campground, lack of privacy or beauty of the campsites, and the tiny cramped pads. - Flying Mantis

We came in for one night and got lucky to get a site. They are usually booked solid months in advance. We stayed in the newer section with trees over close to the store. Water and power were good but sites were very crowded with the amount of stuff that campers bring to this park. No rules about parking or driving on grass or through sites were ever enforced. Store was nicely stocked and the views were beautiful. local Domino pizza delivers to the park. Nice place but overcrowded. Would return in the off season.
Roads were paved and sites were gravel. - jeffs

We stayed here because I worked for Amazon. The sites are on a hill and not very level. All sites are grassy. We were crammed in tightly together and some of our neighbors were not very respectful of our privacy. Would not stay again. - JoyceD50

The word "Resort" does NOT convey what type of place this is. This was our second time here. Both times, the space we reserved by phone, with e-mail follow-up, was occupied upon our arrival. The roads are gravel as are the spaces. Over half of the spaces require a significant amount of blocking to get level. The bath house facilities are too few (for example, men's: 1 each urinal and toilet, 2 showers, 2 sinks) thus we used our on-board facilities. On weekends the managers let their kids use the support golf carts to run all over the place for hours. Three or four golf carts circling for hours through the campground is not what we care to see or hear. Next time we're in this area we will stay some place else. We will not return here. - WayneedC

This park is actually a horse camp, but most horse campers only come on weekends. Outer sites seldom have horses. Owners keep stables very clean; horse campers were very thoughtful about cleaning up behind their animals. Park is in a beautiful natural country setting and backs up to Green River Lake state Park with excellent boat launch, hiking, biking and horse riding trails. Campers and locals gather in the old saloon style hall for karaoke on weekends. This is a dry county, but guests are welcome to bring in their beverage of choice. September through December, the park may be booked solid with Amazon work campers. - Slo Mozey

It's basically a campground for Amazon workers. But it has a meeting room with big TV set, games and books. If you need a place to stay in central Kentucky, it is very good and cheap. The host is very friendly. - tomberlin55

An old KOA with friendly staff, good rates, and minutes from Green River Lake. Lack of road/site maintenance makes it tricky to maneuver, but is cozy with a low price. - selmore

Heartland is a three-level, gravel parking lot with hook-ups. WiFi is available, but not reliable; especially, in the fall/winter when the park is filled with Amazon seasonal employees. The staff is friendly, but don't take the running of the park too seriously. Restrooms seem to be cleaned once every two weeks, but always have paper available. TV reception is so-so because the nearest stations are 30 miles in opposite directions. The park's main selling points are no mud on rainy days, and only a 10 minute walk to the Amazon facility for seasonal workers. - User2888

This RV park was set up mostly for workampers working the peak Fall season at the Amazon.com distribution center right across the road. It is an all gravel park with none of the family oriented things you would find at a vacation type park, like playground or swimming pool or fire pits. There is no shade. But for the purpose it was designed for, it is an excellent park. It is a four minute walk to work at Amazon. The family that owns and runs the park is very friendly and are wonderful people. The park had level sites that are fairly close together, and the park is clean and well maintained. There is a large community room with TV, wi-fi, laundry room, & showers as well as wi-fi through out the park. It's a great place to stay if you're working nearby or just traveling through the area and don't need park provided activities. - freestyle freddy

Camped here from beginning of October to end of November while working for Amazon. Like the larger sites and quiet atmosphere here. Did not feel cramped at all. Some sites not level but not a problem for us. Owners very helpful, allowing us to change sites when we got bigger camper. Also allowed us to get mail delivered there. We compared them to other campgrounds recommended by Amazon and found this to be the best for roomy sites, quiet neighbors and atmosphere. Nice laundry room, game room/activity room and separate adult lounge with big screen TV. Dogs loved all the walks and things to check out. Also had an area I could play ball with them. All the campers here were friendly and considerate. Everything was very clean. We will be back here again. - micwtx

This is an old KOA, and I guess I see why they are not a KOA anymore. Our site is 5 inches unlevel, had to dig 2 hole for tires to sit into along with boards on other side. Utilities are good, along with free WiFi. Sites are very short with tree stumps at the front of site, so we have to pull through another site to get into ours, and through another to get out. Roads are blacktop coming in, but gravel throughout CG. Office clerk was very friendly, allowed us to check out the sites before assigning one. Will not return!! - oldelmer1

We stayed here for almost 3 months while working at Amazon for the Holiday season. Owners are in their 3rd year and do all they can to accommodate you. There are a lot of regulars at this campground and all are very friendly. The sites can be difficult for leveling or entering with big rigs, but expansion is in the planning. Some sites are shaded and some are more open. Workampers for Amazon are here from mid October to the end of December. No live-ins, very family oriented. I would stay here anytime I was in the area. - FT Allen

We stayed at this campground as part of the Amazon Camperforce so our fees were paid by Amazon. This is a small campground that caters to fishermen as it is just .5 miles from the boat launch into Green River Lake. No Verizon phone or data service due to the location. Good electrical hook up but water pressure weak. Free campground Wi-Fi. No office, laundry, or gathering place. Owner only a phone call away for problems. Very friendly and accommodating. Gravel sites, not all level. 40' maximum length. 5 miles to Amazon. Would stay again. - Seeingtheusa.com

Pikes Ridge is remote and slightly primitive. The campground is directly on Green River Lake and has a beach area in a small cove. Electric & water service is available at sites 1-20. These sites offer little or no shade, and are close together with no landscaping between. Sites 6-17 are lakeside, and a few have docks on the water. Sites 18-20 are more spacious and have a partial view of the beach cove. Along the perimeter of the CG are deeply shaded non-electric tent sites (sites 40-55). There are no bath houses at Pikes Ridge, only port-a-potties. Host is on site, and a small grocery is 4 miles away. We liked Pikes Ridge for the beach area, very accessible, good sand, and a warm cove to float in. A wonderful woodlands loop trail at the CG was well maintained. Friday night was quiet, with only a few campers. Saturday afternoon the place filled up, and seemed like everyone brought a couple of dogs. Even with all the campers, the beach was not crowded, as most seemed to be boating on the lake. Overall, Pikes Ridge was a nice weekend getaway. - Flying Mantis

Only about one third of the campground was open. The road through the campsite circle was extremely tight as were the campsites. Tough to negotiate with a larger rig. Nice friendly folks for attendants. Cambellsville was a nice town. Good shopping and restaurants. - hoganc

This campground is NOT big rig friendly. I would not recommend it for any RV larger than about 30 feet. There are two loops. The upper loop is W&E and is very heavily wooded. While the sites are long and spacious, the roads are very narrow with sharp turns and low overhanging branches. The lower loop is E only and is more open with fewer trees but has a small turn around circle at the end with a large tree in the center. Although only about 8 miles from Campbellsville, there is no cell phone coverage for either Verizon or AT&T. Also, there is no direct access to the lake from this campground. If you have a small travel trailer or pop up and want to get away from civilization for a while, you will love this place. - junkmanstan
