Backing into site #47 was quite difficult due to two trees right by the camping pad but leaving proved to be more difficult. My husband very diligently maneuvered his way out nearly taking out our neighbor's site post. We have a 27 ft trailer. The horse flies and yellow jackets swarmed us nearly every time we sat at the provided picnic table. I realize it's the great outdoors but they were everywhere...at the beach, too. The site was all dirt, not level and trash was scattered in the vicinity of site and firepit (cigarette butts, soda cans, bottled water, wrappers, etc.). We camped at Pennyrile Forest State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is spectacularly beautiful. It is remote, about 8 miles from shopping. There are numerous walking trails. There are lots of amenities for families, including swimming, mini-golf and a playground. You will not have AT&T phone service. You will not have internet service. You will not be able to level on your site. For the first time camper, signage and directions are poor. From Dawson Springs, you must cross a bridge that is not load limited for a motorhome. In the regular campground, the sites are very close. The Horse Section is far superior. In spite of that, it is well worth a visit. We would stay here again. We camped at Pennyrile Forest State Park in a Motorhome.

We were there early in season and was the only RV unit in the Horse Campground. So lots of peace and quiet. Utilities are OK. Gravel sites and hard surface service roads. The road into the park could be wider and it has a lot of sharp turns and curves. Go slow and watch for oncoming traffic. Downgraded from a 10 to a 9 due to the entrance road. Overall, a great campground. GPS may take you on some small roads so be sure that you stay on Hwy 109 from Dawson Springs from the North, and get to Hwy 109 from Hopkinsville from the South and stay on 109 until you see the main sign for the park entrance which is on the west side of the road. We camped at Pennyrile Forest State Park in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our stay (especially the renovated beach). We had a problem with power on Saturday and it was dealt with immediately and we appreciated how often the guys checked back to make sure we were ok. However, the bathrooms and trash on the other hand were a major issue. The men ran out of toilet paper Sunday morning and the women had one stocked stall after Sunday. The trash piled up until Monday morning. As we were leaving (noon on Monday) they were there to clean the restrooms. For a campground so full on a Labor day weekend, the facilities should have been maintained more than once. We camped at Pennyrile Forest State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Positives about park, very friendly staff in both campground and lodge. Bathrooms were very clean. Negatives, no signs or map to find sites. Right now they are doing construction. The dump site is very difficult (almost impossible) to get to. We camped at Pennyrile Forest State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
