We read all the prior reviews on this campground prior to booking. All the talk about the train was slightly off putting. I'm not a fan of being awakened by a train whistle at night. We stayed 4 nights at this location. All I can say is who cares about the train noise when you are within sight of I-75 that has traffic noise of all kinds Non Stop! The trains at least blow through quickly. We found the interstate to be much more irritating. I ran a white noise generator app on my phone, a box fan on full speed, and had the camper fan running nonstop at night to drown out traffic sounds. All that said, the campground is OK. I'd have liked more gravel to differentiate my site from the adjoining grass. The pool area was neatly maintained. The fishing lake is small, but what I found the most annoying with it was the stupid Canada geese droppings everywhere. We base camped out of here to do activities in Cincinnati. It was utilitarian, but definitely not some place I'd go back to on purpose. I'd use it as an overnight stop, but certainly not as a destination location. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Management was outstanding and helped get car disconnected and allowed us to use empty site next to us for car and dolly. They gave our daughter, who lives in Dry Ridge, a pass to come in to visit! Some noise from highway which is right down the hill and the trains going by across the road but did not wake us up. Stayed a week in site 60 with nice view of the lake since lower camping area by lake was still closed. They could use some electric up grades to bring voltage up a little more. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Motorhome.

At first, we thought we had found the perfect campground - the site was easily accessible and quite large. It had everything we look for - large very level site, nice shade, large area for picnic table, firepit was far from the front door of the rig, lots of space for the dogs to stretch out. Sites are gravel, no cement patios. The list of rules includes being forbidden to put rugs or carpets down on the grass, because it "ruins" the grass. We could have lived with that, I suppose, but what you don't see - or hear - until you're parked is that there are train tracks less than 50 feet from the edge of the property. After we were set up, the first train went by... we asked the owner how often they run and received a laconic "I'm not sure... I don't even here them anymore." Which may or may not be true, but I will tell you they run every 20 minutes or so - ALL NIGHT LONG. I don't think this campground gets much business anyway, because a closer look the next day showed that most of the sites had as much grass growing through the gravel as the actual "grass" part of the sites did. I would not camp here again. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very big rig friendly. The pull-through lot was huge and we had plenty of space left over even with the tow still hooked up. No auto level needed. The staff was very friendly and nice and gave us driving directions. However, the bad news. I was very surprised that this was a Good Sam Park. I imagine back in it's day, this park was a real beauty. However, all the gardens were grown over. It just looked tired. Also, and this can't be helped, it was the noisiest campground that we have ever stayed in. It is located between a railroad track and a very busy freeway. The train didn't bother us one bit but the noise coming off the freeway prevented us from staying outside very long. This seems to be more of a one night, passing through kind of place and not the place to spend a weekend. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Motorhome.

Pretty park. Owner is very nice and helpful. Too bad he had to park most rigs right next to one another even though there were lots of empty spaces. Laundry room is small and cramped, but adequate. Too bad that this is so close to I-75 and the most active railroad tracks we've ever experienced. Appreciated the Escapee rate. Stayed a week, but probably will only stay here again for a night or two due to the road and train noise. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Travel Trailer.

As stated by others – there is noise from the expressway and trains, but it is not that bad. Some of sites near road leading to campground can hear the trains more than others. Overall it is an older campground, but it has a beautiful lake at the one end. It was a pleasure walking around the lake enjoying nature. It is a catch and release lake. Found the restrooms to be in good shape and clean. Other amenities were not open yet for the season. It was so neat to be sitting in the travel trailer; look out to see a deer strolling through and wild ducks in the lake. The owner was very kind and helpful. Wi-Fi was one of the best we have experienced. We will return more times in the future. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Both Woodalls and Trailer Life web sites show they are open until Dec. 1. However when we pulled up late on Nov. 10 it was closed and had a sign saying they would reopen March 1. Since it was late in the day this was not a good sign. Fortunately we found another campground a few miles away which was open. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Truck Camper.

Sites are mostly level and easy to get into. Staff was friendly and Wi-Fi was just about the best I have ever had in a campground - of course, there were only 4 units in the campground. I gave the campground a 6 rating because of the TRAINS, TRUCKS, and the acorns. The campground is about 100 yards from train tracks - 2 of them which is a major line into and from Cincy - and about 200 yards from I-75 on the other side - and trucks were constantly running over the rumble strip on the edge of the road. We stayed here at the end of camping season and our site was directly beneath a big oak tree which was shedding leaves and acorns which sounded like golf balls hitting the roof. Finally, when leaving the campground, visibility of road to the left is very short and anyone pulling out with a big rig like ours takes a risk to pull out. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This RV Park is a small to medium full service park. The sites are very nice and condition of park is good. Easy to get around in the park with a large RV. The staff was friendly and helpful. It is a nice setting. The only problem is the trains coming nearby that really sound their horns loudly. It seems from 11 p.m. to about 5 a.m. there was little train traffic. I like trains and during the daytime hours it is fine, but can disturb sleep. Also, there is noise from the highway, but not noticeable once in the RV. It is a great overnight stop. I don't know the area so don't know about tourist activities. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Camped here on our way to TN from Illinois. Close to I75. Sites are close, park was clean, water and electric are fine. Noisy train traffic through most of the night. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stopped here overnight on a trip north to Ohio. The owner checked us in and a staff member escorted us to our site. The site sloped upward slightly but well within range of our leveling system. It was the end of the Memorial day weekend so the park was sparsely populated. There is a lovely lake and the overall appearance is that of a well kept park. The park used to be a KOA but is now a Good Sam franchise. The KOA "feel" is still present in the layout, amenities and service but at a lower price. We will certainly stop here again.

Rate reflects discount. We made it into a pull through with our 43' motorhome and tow, but it was a tight fit. We were directed to exit contrary to the posted directional signs because of our size. All sites with sewer were taken so if you need a sewer hook up, it's best to call ahead. Electrical service was 30 amp only at pull through sites. As mentioned by others, train noise was significant and continued throughout the night. Highway noise is also noticeable. It's not a bad park, but difficult access, noise, electrical service and no sewer hookup available mean we won't stay here again. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Motorhome.

Have stayed here three or four times over the years (when it was a KOA) but first time under the current owners. Park was very clean and staff (especially the owner) was courteous, friendly and very helpful (told me about an "unknown" route to Kentucky Speedway). Only reason I didn't give it a "10" was because of train tracks across the street but they really weren't that bad. I highly recommend this campground to anyone visiting the area.

Older KOA convert. It is situated between I-75 and train tracks. Tight interior roads. Ground was quite soggy. Entrance/exit is on a hilly county road so get in and out with safety. Owner & dog escorted me to site. The owner very friendly despite other comments elsewhere. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate includes our Escapees discount. This is an overall nice campground, with fairly level sites and well placed hookups. Big rigs are a bit tight on the access roads, but it's doable. Our 33' coach with a toad was not a problem. The train noise is quite loud, but the night we stayed here, there were only two trains through during the late night/early morning, so our sleep wasn't disrupted too much. The WiFi was solid, and there were a number of local TV stations to watch. We would stay again for an overnight stop. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Motorhome.
