This is a very friendly campground. There's people with boats, horses and families too! It's very clean, has showers and a laundry. During the summer there is entertainment on weekends. The property backs up to Green River State Park. It is a dry county. The sites are sunny and open. The site surface is gravel and there was both a fire ring and a picnic table at our site. We camped at Green River Lake State Park in a Truck Camper.

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. We camped at Green River Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Green River Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Green River Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Pretty park, but restrooms were dirty and smelly. Showers were old and rundown. Would have been a nice place to stay on the lake if facilities were better. We camped at Green River Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed during spring break and it was COLD, but the campground was great. The beach would be nice in the summer and the spacious sites were great. The facilities were clean, and and the camp host was very nice and kept the sites very nice. The store/ office was only open seldom which could be an issue if you stay before peak season. We camped at Green River Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful campground. We had no trouble getting our 40' fifth wheel in and set up. We had a lovely patio site. The views of the lake were spectacular. Facilities were standard for a state park. Mostly clean and everything worked well. Wi-Fi was very good. Camp hosts and staff were fantastic and very accommodating. Would highly recommend this campground. We camped at Green River Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful view of the river. Most sites are level and have shade. Nice paved trails to walk. Wish they had sewer hook-up. We camped at Green River Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great lake view sites. But the older loop is cramped and can't fit a boat and camper in the site. They did update the sites and raise the prices. Have to pay for the WiFi. Over its a good campground, but recommend getting in the 100's camping spots. We camped at Green River Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was open because of the Amazon employees who were staying there. Beautiful views of the lake. The were W/D available and plenty of restrooms that were kept clean with lots of hot water. We would definitely stay there again. We camped at Green River Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice, clean park. People are here to put boats into the water. We backed up to tent sites with our hybrid trailer, so we actually could see the lake. Seems scooters were popular to ride around and around, later in the day. Did have to wait for a shower but there are 2 bathhouses. Boat traffic was not all that heavy on the lake, and you can park your boat trailer by the water. Some tent sites on the water. Sites are still a little close to each other but the roads were a bit wider. Swimming beach and playgrounds. Easy drive and good paved roads. We camped at Green River Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was my family's first camping trip to this campground. Check-in was a breeze, although the check-in lady was a real snot! She was not very friendly and acted as if it was an inconvenience to help us. We found our spot without any problems. Our site was level; had nice shade trees and a beautiful water view! Our breaker box on the outside electric box kept kicking. I'm not sure what that was about. Bathrooms were fairly clean, out-dated but clean. Showers had plenty of hot water and good water pressure. There were 2 nice playgrounds for the kids. There are TONS of unsupervised kids running around the park. There seemed to be a lot of traffic through the campground. People driving cars from site to site. It was frustrating b/c there were kids riding their bikes through the campground with NO supervision. While our family tried to play a game of putt-putt, kids were "butting into" our game. Of course, there were no parents in sight. Very strange! Over-all, its a basic but nice park. Especially if you have a boat and go out onto the water. We all really enjoyed the nice view of the lake. The kids liked watching the boats speed up and down the water. We would probably camp here again. We camped at Green River Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice recreational park. Rates range from $14 per night for a primitive tent site to $30 a night for waterfront sites. Water and electric connections available. I don't know about cable TV, telephone, or wifi. There is a sand beach for swimming in the lake. There are many activities in the area and a playground in the campground for the kids. Shower houses and restrooms were clean and well maintained. Dump station was easily accessed. I've stayed at several of Kentucky's state parks and this one did not disappoint me. Kentucky seems to have some of the best kept state parks around. We would stay at this park again. We camped at Green River Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful place to take your children. We were there by accident on KY Kids Day. A totally free event for kids where they have tons of outdoor fun and even provide a free lunch. Even without the Kids Day event, it was a great campground. There is a really nice sandy beach within a short walk. The bathrooms were very clean. The only trouble we had was very little shade. Most sites are nicely shaded, but we were on the one road that seemed to have younger trees and therefore much less shade. Overall a great campground. We camped at Green River Lake State Park in a Tent Trailer.
