7 Parks near Frankfort, Kentucky
Aug 2011 - $26.00
This is a nice campground about 10 miles outside of Frankfort KY. Initial impressions were that the grounds were somewhat "aged" but after paying and heading to the site, the actual grounds are very nice. They are back quite a bit from the office and well maintained, quiet and pleasant. Our only issue was that the electric spiked high voltage every evening around 7:00. This caused our EMS to shut down the electric to our coach and start the inverter to protect our system. The length of time varied each day. We had good Verizon cell and air card coverage. The owners were very pleasant. We would return if in the area. - Gypsy Turtles

Rate reflects a weekly rate. This is a gem located north of Frankfort on the Kentucky River at the mouth of the Elkhorn Creek. Entry can be misleading as you cross a single-lane bridge on pavement and then transition to gravel. The area around the office and the storage area are a bit unkempt, but as you are escorted to your site you round the bend and see a beautiful, unspoiled meadow. All roads are gravel and single lane but courtesy makes traversing them no problem. We requested a site for our satellite and had no problem connecting. However, many sites are in the shade so be sure to request an open site if that is important to you. The full-hook-up sites have many seasonals but their campsites are neat. The hook-ups are conveniently located and easily accessed. The sites are gravel surrounded with grass. This is not a resort but if you like a state park atmosphere with full hook-ups, you'll enjoy Still Waters. There are also two primitive areas and water/electric only sites available for RVs and tents with a dump station on the grounds. There are no trains, no highway noises, no city lights. Frisbee golf,fishing, hiking, volleyball and a lots of wide open spaces for the kids to run are located on the grounds as well as canoe rentals available at the concession in the campground. Probably could be busy/zoo on a summer/holiday weekend or if there's a company picnic on the grounds, but during the week it is an oasis. Located about 10 miles north of Frankfort, Still Waters is close enough to access all the sightseeing available in the area. Would definitely return again. - Here4Now

Stayed one night. This was a nice park, easy to get to. It was busy, but not noisy and did not feel crowded. Had a pool and putt putt course, and a covered area for groups- had a small arcade there. Was a good camp for kids/families. I checked out the bathrooms and they were clean, but like many others have said- maybe the AstroTurf carpet is not a great idea - wear flip flops and you'll be fine. - 72Chev

Only stayed one night but a good experience. Easy pull throughs, didn't have unhook. Lots were spacious and mostly shady. Site surface was asphalt and featured a fire ring, picnic table and patio. - Fire7C

Called ahead for a 3-day stay at campground. Requested full service and was assigned site in monthly area. Nice 'cause we have raised wooden deck instead of patio. Site backs on to fields.
Many large rigs in park - a combination of open and treed sites. Paved interior roads are easy to navigate.
Nice and quiet which we appreciate. - DCM/JMB

What a gem! $15 for a campsite! Wow! The only way we found this campground was with RVParkReviews, and we're glad we did! It's very small, only 10 sites, but we called ahead and he said he'd save a site for us. We had to ask for the address (1433 Burks Branch Road), and Google Maps found it.
The park is lovely with a small fishing lake, lots of grass, a nice playground, and pedal boats for rent. The sites have concrete pads which are very short, but we managed to get all the wheels on it. We just parked our tow vehicle on the asphalt in front. As someone else mentioned, the manager's house is the office and it reeks of cigarette smoke, but he was helpful. The bathrooms are pretty rustic, but they are clean and there's plenty of hot water. There's no wifi, but I had a good enough Verizon signal, and I can buy a lot of data with the money we saved here! - mom2wildlife

We had called ahead to reserve a spot, the gentleman was very nice, we tried to use a CC to hold it as we didn't know what time we would get in. He refused, just said 'Make sure you show up'. We did show up about 7 p.m., he had just given our site to someone one else, but did have a couple of other sites open if I could get my rig backed into them. I took a look at them and knew that it wouldn't be a problem. I was concerned our 37' RV would extend too far into the road way, but he was ok with me putting the tag axle tires just off the concrete pad into the grass. Once that was done, had an amazing evening and morning at the park. Very peaceful, beautiful and extremely affordable campground. I would highly recommend this park. I hate to though, because it is a gem, and with only 10 sites can fill up quickly. If cigarette smoke bothers you, I would recommend not walking into the office as he was smoking while filling out our info. That is the only bad thing I can say about the park! The office is his house, so if he wants to smoke, it is his house. Cash or Check only. - JaNorma

We were near and called and left a message to get a call back. It took probably over an hour, but Bob called and told us how to get there. Not for the faint of heart camper, but fine for us. Beautiful park stretches along dammed up creek lake. We were visiting folks so would not be there much. Very small sites, concrete to park on, face the doublewide. No table, but picnic table across grass near lake. Only a tent site right on lake that we saw, others are near the lake. Restrooms are rustic, but clean. Plenty of hot water. Bob knew that we would be back late and it was to rain, so he didn't lock up till we were home. We would camp here again. - jumpup

Big rig friendly with very large level sites. Campground is great if you want quiet rural area and far away from everything. Of course no internet service because state park. Also, could not get my Verizon internet nor cell phone service. No dog park but lots of grass to walk dog. Bike riding was great. Showers had weak water pressure. Laundry was good. - Fulltimersrv

We had a great site close to the bath house which was clean. Nice area to walk and ride bikes, horses are welcome too. Our family enjoyed the fishing. - Dottyann

This is a very crowded park. Sites are very close together and there is no where to park you tow vehicle or your toad if you have a motorhome. The site(s) we stayed on where just barely big enough for our 40 foot motorhome and the front end was right on the street. Parking is difficult due to the amount of tow vehicles parked on the sides of the road (both sides). Also, our site was so soft our jacks in the rear sunk down 12" in the gravel. Boards were not much help.
When you arrive, there is a gentlemen that insists on "parking" you. I don't really want someone showing me where and how to park my rig, so I just had to ignore him which he didn't like. I know my rig, where it needs to be on the site, etc., and really don't like someone telling me I'm back too far, or I need to get closer to the utilities etc., when they don't realize I have to be able to open my basement doors.
Overall, it's a decent campground, but there are others so much better so we most likely won't be back. It's just way to crowded and close together for my tastes. - sixtires58

This is a lovely park. It is huge, but plenty of space for everyone. It has fishing, basketball court, a wonderful pavilion, pool, laundry, etc.
Our site was backed up to a green lagoon - very quiet and private. - W Davidson

First, and most impt, the road in is difficult to say the least. The first 75% is a narrow 2 lane road with no shoulder. The last 25% is one lane. Two RVs cannot pass. An RV and a truck can't pass. Highly suggest that if you have a tow vehicle, unhook before you take access road and let tow vehicle lead the way. Once you get there you will be greeted by the wonderful owners/mgrs. They are proud of their campground and in many ways show it. Grounds are well kept. This is essentially 3 CGs. The sites that back up to the river (actually on hill 40' above). They are spacious and level, but the asphalt pad is short so you may have to put your rear wheels on the grass as we did. The center sites are long pull thrus. But some are far from level and you may have trouble leveling. The further away from the office, they become almost level. The sites that back up to the woods also are far from level and short. Suited for TTs. There is no cable. River and pull thrus can get satellite signals. No Verizon service. They do have a phone you can use. The dumpster was .4 miles from our MH and they don't offer pickup as they should. Beautiful pool, office, bath house and laundry was .25 miles from our MH. Despite these negatives this is a beautiful place to stay. Make your Rez far in advance since the riverfront sites are mostly taken by seasonals. Very quiet. We would definitely stay here again. - Scott Charlton

Stay here if you must, but we warned. The road leading to this park is a very narrow two lane highway. It is approximately 5 miles off the road. The last quarter mile is a one lane highway. The laundry does not dry the clothes using $1.00 worth of coins as indicated. It is not opened 24 hours. It is not a big park, but settled in next to a river, surrounded by trees which makes for nice camping. A good spot if you are not touring the area. Low water pressure. Great if you want to launch a boat, they have a launch ramp. There is barely cell phone reception, however, we did have a booster antenna and that gave us three bars. They keep referencing to use their Wi-Fi, which we would hardly ever connect to. They do have a land line phone at the office and are more than accommodating to allow use without charge. Pull through sites are curved and not friendly for 5th wheels. Using this campground to tour the area wasn’t our first choice and probably wouldn’t stay again to be coming and going. Very nice to just stay put and camp. - Badge

Great park, very well manicured. Previous posts about steep road are true, but trees are trimmed and our 40' 5th wheel made it down. Right on the river with docks available. Very nice owners, always there willing to help out in any way. Would definitely stay here again. - dj4pres

The back-in sites here are excellent but I give it an 8 because wifi was very poor and there is no sewer. Taking showers in their shower room saves on the grey water situation. All sites are level and are conveniently located to the well-stocked store and refreshing swimming pool. Making reservations through Reserve America worked well. - exceltraveler

We stopped here as an overnight spot. We have a 38 foot RV and could not get level in the full hookup spot we were assigned. It was supposed to be one of the more level spots in the campground. The office assisted us and eventually we found a spot in the primitive electric area with 30 amp service. If you have a larger motor home, this is NOT the campground for you. That said, there are lovely fields for walking dogs and it is well located and visually appealing. - Dapper

Very large, but well laid out campground with large sites. Staff were very pleasant to work with. Went to the horse park each day we were there and were given rides via golf cart. Return trips were easily arranged also. - gfarmcafe
