You can get a big rig in but it is tight. Some sites are paved but narrow. Lots for kids to do: pool, game room, shuffleboard, etc. Roads in and out are also tight but doable. We enjoyed our stay. Ice cream was a nice touch. Dump station difficult to get to if you are not on full hookups. Full Hookups are appropriately placed. Not a lot to choose from if visiting Lexington area. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an older campground that is very clean and well maintained. Most sites are back in but access roads are pretty good and backing in was no problem. Sites are paved concrete with a wooden deck on the side with a picnic table. Fire rings are at each site with plenty of shade. Not sure satellite would work. Cable TV is digital an only works if you have a digital TV. We don't and were only told this after fiddling with the TV and cable for quite a while until I finally went back to the office to ask if cable worked. Staff was not all that helpful and questions were answered after the person on duty finally decided to look up from her smartphone. Additionally she didn't seem to know much about the area and suggested I "read the brochures" that were available in the office. A few of the sites are rather close together, and our neighbor had to move their chairs out of the way so I could extend my slide out on the driver side. Most of the other sites did not have that problem. Also be aware that the creek front sites are not full hook up, but a dump station is available. Lots of families were there for vacation so lots of kids were enjoying themselves. I would consider this park again if in the area as it is very close to the beautiful horse farms and Lexington area. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Motorhome.

Neat, tidy campground with clean restroom and showers. Showers and toillet are all carpeted and I question how these are kept clean. The pictures of the pull through sites are very deceiving because they show only one rig per pull through. Actually, they put two rigs per site with one unit being a back in making the water connection on the wrong side. We had a popup directly behind us and their tent end was only 4 feet from our back window. Motor homes can not put their car on the site unless they pull in sideways. The pull through sites are very close together. We would probably stay here again because other campgrounds are rated poorly except for the Kentucky Horse Park. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Interior roads were paved, with some sites paved and some gravel. The entrance road was one-way with some low-lying branches that scraped our coach - not good. Our paved site (#92) was fairly level and required only some work from the jacks. There were lots of trees throughout the park, which provided helpful shade. Sites were close together, putting awnings in close proximity with each other and forcing folks to walk through neighbor's sites to access RV compartments. The 50-amp power was strong, and water pressure was good. The signal to our Verizon phones and hotspot was strong. Many sites do not have sewer, so be sure to ask for full hookups if you want them. Same with fire pits, not all sites have them so you should ask if you want one. The dump station is in an odd location where you must block the road while you dump. The bathrooms and showers were nice and clean, although they were carpeted, which we haven't seen before. The air-conditioned laundry room consisted of 4 washers, 4 dryers and a carpet-covered folding table. Many stores and services were available in the capitol city of Frankfort, just a few miles down the road. Lexington was also very accessible from this park. We would stay here again. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall this is a great place to camp. The staff was extremely helpful as this was our "maiden voyage" for our travel trailer. At one point someone worked with us for 45 minutes to get cable to work to watch NCAA game. Plenty of room to pull in. Only reason for a 9/10 rating is the wifi was spotty and the camp store was just starting to be stocked when should have been ready for opening weekend. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice, quiet, and well run campground with lots of amenities. The pool is fun and the bathroom and showers are very nice. There are many long term residents but everyone is friendly. WiFi is good, cable TV is plentiful. This campground is off a small road so it is quiet with lots of green space. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here twice in April 2013 and once in May 2014. Very clean and well maintained. Restroom/showers were extremely clean. Family run and staff is very helpful with tourist info and directions. Grounds, pool, and playground are all well maintained. Nice camp store in office with good selection of items for the camper who forgot something. Will stay here every time we are passing through. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Motorhome.

Wonderful location, trees, grass, peace and quiet, just like their website says. Good site, good connections, nice people. Leaving the site was difficult because we're so long (43 feet plus the toad), but there were enough empty spaces in the right place to make the big turn around. We would stay here again.

This is a very pleasant campground that is very family orientated. Our site was level and right on the stream. Grass area with picnic table and fire ring. Clean Restrooms and Showers. The staff here was very friendly. The pool was not open yet will be in a couple of weeks. They have put put golf here and horseshoes. We ended up staying an extra day it was so relaxing and pleasant. Plus no bugs at night. There are parts that have people who live here full time but, all friendly. This is a very clean park. The little store has good basics. If in the area again we will stay here!

While this park is a little off the beaten path and has a large "regular" population, it is very nice and we would drive the extra few miles to stay here again. It was quite with very friendly staff. Park was clean and well maintained. I would stay here again. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A beautiful setting next to a creek. A well run family operation. Popular with groups. Paved streets and many paved pads. Some pull-through sites were too close together to allow extending awnings by adjacent units. The park is clean and recreational facilities are well maintained. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Motorhome.

Pros: Park-like setting, nice trees. Some water and electric sites by the stream. Good Verizon data and voice service. Sparkling clean rest rooms and showers. Reasonable prices for laundry. Owner (male) very helpful and friendly. He helped us with their cable boxes. Cons: Sites very narrow and short. Felt cramped. Fire rings on adjacent sites too close to our rig. Unable to get satellite due to trees. Their cable is digital so if you have analog TV's you have to use their converter boxes for "cable" TV. Owner (female) was not friendly and almost rude. We would not camp here again if there was another choice in the area. Also very busy on weekends so reservations are a must. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed on camp site 12. It was nice. We had a paved space. Picnic table was in grass. Quiet park. Our space was by the river so we could fish from our site. The restrooms were clean. The pool was free for campers and it was clean. The mini golf was $1 per person and there was free Wi-Fi! One thing we were not happy about was that the fire ring was close to the camper and with the air conditioner running our pop up smelled like a big campfire. It also caused our fire alarm to go off. We had to move the camper some the next morning. Also when my husband called about the cost per night he was told $27, but when we got there it was $31. We could complain with free pool and Wi-Fi. We will be back. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Tent Trailer.
