15 Parks near Columbia, Kentucky
Apr 2015 - $30.00
I camp at this park a couple of times a year to visit family near by. Owners are very friendly and accommodating. The 30/50 AMP electrical is great, you won't have trouble with low voltage here. The WiFi was good as I was next to one of the repeaters. Clear S/W sky for satellite. They have recently installed a storm/tornado shelter which is a plus. Easy back in sites for big rigs. - camper914

Site are large, back in, bordered by large railroad ties which makes draining tanks difficult. No amenities. Nice sites but owners are VERY disorganized! When you call for reservations they say things like "Yes, we have a site for you, I think, unless someone else takes it"!!!!! - Fulltimer5

Nothing fancy, but if you're looking for a basic roomy campsite, this is a good place. The sites are roomy, plenty of room to maneuver a big rig with trailer, and full hook ups. The only thing strange is that the owners are not on site. But one phone call and they quickly come. Will stay here again. - leona2857

Stayed here twice this summer, same site each time for 2 weeks, site 102. Quiet, back in electric only loop. Completely in woods, beautiful loop. Playground and most families in other area, with water and electric. Campground has 2 dump stations, completely flat, best I have seen. There are 2 bath houses that are cleaned every day, of course, you need to get there before some of the other campers if you want it to still be clean. Swimming just a couple of minutes away by car. Really nice. Columbia is a nice town. McDonalds has plugs and wifi. Will go back everytime I am in the area. I have a 30 ft RV with tow and dolly. Plenty of room for all 3. - solo woman

We got to the campground on Thursday and stayed 3 nights. It is a pretty nice campground with plenty of space between campsites. It has sites with electricity/water, electricity only, and primitive. We stayed at electric only site, but they had a place for you to fill water tank before you pulled into site area. We had a lakeside view looking down at lake, but it had trees blocking some of the view. That is why I gave campground a 9 instead of a 10. Clean off some of the smaller trees and improve view a little, but that is just a personal opinion. The dump sites were easy to use and clean also. They had some trails there to use and lake beach was a easy drive to get to. Overall I would go back to this campground again and plan to do so. - kycamper02

This campground deserves no stars! If you have anything larger then a tent do not attempt to use this campground. We made our reservation via the website, checking and studying the pictures of the site as well as the description. The site was stated to be more then adequate to handle the length of our coach and trailer. Upon our arrival and after checking in we were told rudely we would not fit. I asked for a car pass and told I did not have a car so why would I need one (we were using a relatives car) and are relative had to pay $5 dollars to enter and then told her should could not take the car to the site but had to park it and walk the 1/2 mile in. We asked for another site we could fit into and was told no. Then we were told to drop our trailer and park it across from the office. This was on a single lane road with no area to maneuver a 40 ft. coach plus swing a trailer into a narrow spot. We proceeded to the site and sure enough the website description and picture were totally misleading and falsely represented the site. The site was long but turned (the picture showed it as being straight), there was no mention that part of the drive was a swale and that the width of the drive is not wide enough to accommodate a motor coach wheel base. Our refund was denied, but that's okay. Please stay away from this campground, it is misrepresented and the staff is the rudest we have ever met. - leona2857

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 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

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. - John-Doe Farm

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 arrived on a Sunday afternoon, over Labor day weekend, with a reservation of course. The campground was packed, but not overly noisy. The attendant was expecting us and had our paperwork ready to go. She gave us a camp map and told us how to get to our campsite. She was very friendly and helpful. It was easy to back into and set up in, with electric and water hookup within easy reach. We had a few trees for shade, but would have preferred more to be honest.The sites that had water and electric hookups had very little tree shade, but primitive sites were in the forest treeline. I would trade that for the waterfront view any day. We were literally within 20 foot of the lake, with a excellent view of it. The electric flow was good, with water pressure being a little low. They had a private campground beach, located in a cove area. It wasn't too deep and nice to cool off in. There were very few people at beach, but I think it was because everyone was boating in the lake. It also had a very nice marina set up there, with various boat docks for people to tie off boats for the night if they wanted to while camping there. The roads getting to the campground were tight, but manageable.
Make sure to have what you need as far as supplies go, because it is a good bit from any stores. There is a "grocery store" within 10 minutes from campground, but it is more a shack than anything else. Also, for people it matters to: very spotty wi-fi and cell service. There are no bathhouses at this campground, only porta-potties set up. That being said they were well maintained at least.There were 2 trails located in the campground, but I did not use them. Overall, I will be coming back to this campground if given the chance and would recommend it to others looking to get away for a quiet getaway. - kycamper02

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

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

Inexpensive, good overnight spot with long big rig sites. Easy to get to, easy in and out with full hookups. Only 2 miles south of Cumberland Parkway (exit 62) on US 127. (3142 S. US Hwy 127). - Grandpa Bobby

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

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
