We stayed at this park for five nights. Sites are mostly back in sites. Most sites have long term residents. The sites around the perimeter seem to be for short term rentals. Ours was fine. RV parking was on concrete and we had a lawn next to us with a wooden deck. Most of the sites seemed to have wooden decks. Many of the best sites along a creek do no have sewer or TV cable. If you can do without these sites are great. There is a new bathhouse which is fantastic. Almost done with a new swimming pool. Great cable TV. Digital with a guide. Great location for touring the Bourbon Trail. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Elkhorn Campground for 2 nights in May 2017 and I cannot praise the campground and the staff (particularly the owner) enough. Our campsite was a back-in site, as I think most are there, that was very long (we have a 30 foot motorhome with a tow car) and this site was more than enough space for us. The site was paved and level. The hook-ups were exactly where they should be and easy to access. The campground itself is very nice, green, clean and pretty, surrounded by trees (but not in the way). We happened to arrive on Derby day and the park was having a Derby viewing party in the pavilion and we were invited upon our arrival. There was an awesome, welcoming and friendly atmosphere and my husband and I really enjoyed watching with many locals and families. But what makes this park even more memorable and the reason that we will return to Elkhorn when we are in the area again is the staff, and particularly the owner. I actually did not know he was the owner until we were leaving. He was always very busy working throughout the park, but never too busy to help people out with whatever they needed. He is kind, funny, and so down to earth, just an all around nice guy! We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is about 5 miles off I-64. It was perfect for an overnight stop. We had a pull-through site with electric and water. The site (#99) was very long...well over 75' in my estimation. Gravel/grass pads that are well maintained. Beautiful, mature trees. We had quite a bit of rain and our site drained very well. Sites 33-39 are back-in sites right on the creek, so lovely sites if your unit isn't too long. The pull-through sites 96-100 didn't appear to have fire rings but the back-in sites did. They have a little later check-out time (1:00) than most campsites which we appreciated. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed two nights. We were booked into a 30 amp spot, but the campground changed us to an available 50 amp. The spot was level, concrete and was long enough to park our tow vehicle in front of the motorhome. There was a deck that was very useful and the staff was very helpful. We will stay here again when we're in the Frankfort area. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Motorhome.

Wifi very good. Cable TV excellent. Beautiful surroundings. My only complaint is the sites are very close together. We have a 40 ft fifth wheel and managed to squeeze in and out. I would recommend this Park to a smaller rv or to large RVs who don't mind 30 amp water electric, as the sites on the stream are fabulous. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

One of the few parks still open in November. Nice older park situated in a quiet bend of the Elkhorn creek. A good location for doing Bourbon tasting at multiple distilleries with in 30 miles. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground was full on a Friday night. There appeared to be quite a few seasonal and/or regular visitors. The site was close to others but was long enough for us to park without unhooking the car. Manager in the office was friendly. Not a destination, but fine for one night while traveling through the area. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Motorhome.

We had a FHU site with 50 amp. When making reservation was told site would be pull-through. Technically, it was if you were the first one there which we were. We pulled through and then someone else was backed up directly behind us. Sites are very close together. Campground is older and showing wear. Seems minimally maintained. Section we were in had a wooden patio with picnic table on it. Despite the many trees, we were able to get satellite reception with our portable dish. Wi-fi worked pretty well at our site. Lady in office was unfriendly when checking in. A few days later when we asked where the laundry room was, it was unmarked, she was rude again. A day before we were to leave, she called us on phone and tried to tell us we had to leave that day. When we didn't agree, she hung up on us. We paid with cash because there is a surcharge for using a credit card, and she never gave us a sreceipt. Luckily, her husband remembered a problem we had with someone else plugged into our 50 amp plug when we arrived, and he remembered when we arrived, which was not the same date she said. We would never stay here again. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for a Mississippi State Football game at Commonwealth Stadium. The camping went well. The ball game didn't. The drive to down town Lexington was easy. We found lots of good restaurants and stores in easy drive of the campground. We would stay here again if we in the area. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Great shaded sites. Most of them are paved with water and 30/50 amp and cable T.V. Bathhouse was absolutely spotless. Nice pool and fishing in Elkhorn Creek is close to all sites. Grandkids enjoyed their stay with us. Only issue was that the campground is listed under Full Hookup Sites, but all of the sites with sewer hookups are taken up by long term campers. Dump station was easily accessed. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
