Came to stay for one night. Everything we read said this state park had big rig access; not so. I even verified that this was true when I called. We travel in a 40' with a toad and we had to unhook to get around a turn and we now have a nice crunch on one side of the rig.

The park itself is nice enough, mostly quiet (some traffic noise) but we won't return because of the access issues. We camped at General Butler State Resort Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Would be a good place for a smaller rig and families.

Stayed for an over-nighter. Campground is close to a main highway. Noisy. Otherwise, average state park. Jungle-gym and swings for the kiddies. We camped at General Butler State Resort Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for the first trip of 2014 during a nice weekend in March. We have stayed at this park before and loved it. Much to our surprise on arrival, they have basically cut down all woods in the park due to emerald ash borer. Its so disappointing to see all the trees gone. The nature trails are gone, and the park will never be the same. All the big logs were taken to the mills and the remaining tops and brush were all left in the woods. The dozer used to drag trees has the ground so torn up and muddy that this year will be a write off. To top it off the lake was lowered over the winter for dam repair and its basically now a big mud puddle. We camped at General Butler State Resort Park in a Tent Trailer.

If you want to camp very close to civilization this is a great campground. They also have a very nice playground - or two. There are a lot of things for kids to do - which is nice. The sites are pretty close together, but overall it was a nice campground. The bathhouses are not updated and are basic state park bathhouses. There are only two showers per bathhouse and they are not fancy by any means, but there was hot water. We stayed in site 63 which is next to a trail with a lot of traffic and the water hookup was very far away. We were glad we brought more than one hose to reach that far. However, it is still a beautiful park! We will definitely camp here again with our children. We camped at General Butler State Resort Park in a Tent Trailer.

Pretty camping place. Lots for the kids to do. Bathrooms/showers were clean but not well stocked (grant it, it was a holiday weekend). Sites are close together. Picnic tables were in the grass and mud. Swimming pool was at another location. Overall it was nice. We camped at General Butler State Resort Park in a Tent Trailer.

Stayed at site 87. Reserve America says a 41ft vehicle could park here. We have a 34ft TT and it was very difficult to get out TT into our site. This state park was constructed before the advent of larger campers/motorhomes with slides. The roads are narrow and and sites and not extremely deep so be careful if you have a larger rig. Also, not all sites have sewer, only about 10-20 of them. Now for the good parts, our site was totally shaded, and I really liked our great view of the woods. Lake is nice, hiking trails nice, and playgrounds at the campground is nice. They have putt-putt, small boat rental, and a pool. The pool cost $5.00 a day, and is free for campers from 4:00-6:30. We elected to pay the $5.00 fee and use the pool whenever we wanted. We will be back. Great park, fully paved and well maintained. We camped at General Butler State Resort Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed for one night while traveling. Some premium sites have sewer hook ups for $26 . The water and electric sites are $23 but some discounts apply, so check if calling ahead. The sites are nicely spaced, and the setting is very nice. There is some minor road noise since it is not far from the highway. The first site we hooked up to had a short in the electrical box and we moved to another site. Picnic tables are old and some ground maintenance may be needed. No one at the gate or camp host available for information. Good for short term stay if in the area. We camped at General Butler State Resort Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of are favorites. Huge big trees make for some very shady sites especially the loop from 94-111. Some sites can be tricky if you have slides, or awnings. Nice hiking trails, and a 50 acre lake. The lake is down right now due to a leak in the dam though. The bathrooms were dirty, but we use the facilities in our TT so I couldn't care less. The grass was a little long too. Looks like everyone is suffering from budget issues. Very nice park with strong electric but low water pressure. Dump station was under repair while we were there. Wifi is now available for a fee. Will return. We camped at General Butler State Resort Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great Autumn hiking at Gen. Butler. Campground was mostly deserted. Never did spot a ranger. Good but steep trail leads directly to the Lodge from the CG. Other trails continue to the historic home. A Lake Loop also connects to CG. Looks like sites would have plenty of shade in the summer. We will return! We camped at General Butler State Resort Park in a Motorhome.

Another GREAT Kentucky State Park! No trouble getting our 40 ft motorhome in, but some spaces are tight when parking a tow or vehicle pulling a trailer. Lots of trees and we were pleasantly surprised to find 50 amp service at our site when ReserveAmerica.com stated only 30amp was available. Good internet & cell phone connection through Verizon. Golf course was fun & priced right but did need a bit of work. Camp host went door to door to tell everyone of a severe storm approaching & where to seek shelter. There were activities for kids, too. We'd definitely stay here again. We camped at General Butler State Resort Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park for spring or early fall camping. Summer heat is too much for no waterplay. Pool is at the lodge & available for free from 4:30-6pm (which is usually when storms pop up). The beach that is advertised has been closed for a while, & there is no swimming in the lake. Paddle boats/canoes are available for rent but are $20 per person per hr rental. Too much in my opinion. Campsites are spacious & fairly level. There are some full hook up sites, but those seem to be closer together. For shorter stays, I'll take the space over convenience of sewer.

Another very nice Kentucky State Park. The pool at lodge is wonderful and free for RV Park campers from 4:30 to 6:00PM. Otherwise $5 a day. There is a fun 9 hole golf course, but maintenance suffering due to budget cuts. We stayed a week and enjoyed it. Plenty of fast food, Super Wal-mart and Kroger nearby. It is minutes from the Ohio River. We would stay again. We camped at General Butler State Resort Park in a Motorhome.

I don't remember how much it was to camp but I think it was around $25.00 a night, we were here for a family reunion. The camp site was clean and spacious. There was a pool but it is not at the campground, it is at the lodge. There is suppose to be a charge to use the pool but no one at the pool to pay. The restrooms were clean but there were not enough restrooms and not enough showers: you had to wait your turn. About a 25 minute wait for a shower both days we were here, for both the men's and women's shower. Nice playground. We camped at General Butler State Resort Park in a Tent Trailer.

A very nice State campground. We stayed in site 87 and it was very nice. All paved and easy to get into/out of. Trash dumpsters well away from any camp sites. Both shower houses were clean. Plenty of hot water for showers. Put-put golf was available. Staff was very friendly, as was the campground host. It's very quiet at night and we enjoyed this campground. Will stay here again. We camped at General Butler State Resort Park in a Travel Trailer.
