4 RV Parks near Franklin, Kentucky
Apr 2018 - $35.00
This campground is close to I-65 but the road noise isn't really noticeable. The sites at first look a bit rustic and very uneven but once we were in our site I found it easier to level than I expected. The hook-ups were where they belong and easily connected. The people staffing the office were helpful, friendly, and reasonably professional. One man guided us to our site and helped me get properly aligned to the hook-ups. They seem to understand RVers and discussed sites that might be best for both us and for my daughter's family who would soon arrive in a 40 foot long 5th wheel. We never left our RVs during the brief stay (poor April weather as it snowed overnight) so we didn't use any of the facilities. The interior roads were a bit rough and tilted requiring care while driving on them. There were some long term sites that had lots of less than attractive "stuff" scattered around but overall this was a suitable, friendly stopover and we'd do it again if in the area. - sandean

Very good campground. It's been under new ownership since May 2016 (I'm told this formerly was a KOA). The owner and an assistant were incredibly friendly and showed us the way to our site. All sites are pull-through and FHU, and almost all sites have new picnic tables. The showers, while small, are new and clean. Each one has a chair hanging on the inside door so it doesn't take up room until you need it. (I wish they would have grab bars for us old guys.) Bathroom (separate from the several showers) appears remodeled. The office has been recently built or remodeled. It appears new gravel has been poured along some roads and sites. There is a basketball court, playground and horse shoes pit. There is a "camper kitchen" where campers can cook and serve a group in a gazebo. There appears to be a section of permanent or long-term residents. Those rigs all look fine except one or two. There is some highway noise. There are some trees but definitely no privacy. No wifi. Finding the place should be easier. If you are southbound on I-65 and exit at #6, turn right at the end of the exit ramp. There's a Pilot gas station on the left. Watch for a white, camp ground sign with a banjo on it. Turn left onto the road immediately behind the sign. The camp ground advertises bluegrass music "regularly" at a 2,500-person pavilion on the grounds. I suppose the people who stay at this park are the kind who don't mind parking their trailer maybe 30 feet from the stage. I was there on a Saturday night in March and thank heavens there was no show then. I definitely like the park and the operator, so I'd return. - John_K

Roads into and inside the park are easy to navigate. Check in was fast and friendly, the camp hosts are from our home town of Asheville, NC and we had a great time reminiscing with them. Due to a flat tire on our way here, we were late in arriving and they were very gracious about it.
There are 78 sites, most pull through, along with a tent area and cabins. We were in Site 4, a gravel pull through with full hook-ups, no issues, and 50 amp electric. Sites are narrow, but long enough for our 37-foot Class A, tow-dolly and parking the car.
There is a large 2,500 seat music pavilion, a lake, and playground. The park is quiet. There is WiFi but you have to sign up for it on line and we were here for just one night so we didn't do that. We stayed December 4, 2017 and paid $19.50 with our Passport America discount. - BarrettsHappyTrails

Many reviews seem to show two experiences at this KOA. One is open and sunny, but near the interstate with lots of road noise. The other is shaded and quiet. My experience was the second. The reason for this discrepancy is because the KOA is built right next to the interstate and appears to have added on in later years. That addition doesn't have the trees the older part does and it is closer to the interstate. So, if you end up back in the newer part, it will be louder and less shaded. The older part of the park is quite relaxing and considerably more quiet. With all of that said, I would still plan on coming back to this park, even if we end up on the new side. The campground itself is clean and well maintained and the city of Bowling Green has a lot to offer. Also, it's positioned very close to all the shopping, grocery stores, and activities. It's right in the middle of it all. The biggest downfalls I found were that our site did not have a grill and the fire pit didn't have a grate. So, for outdoor cooking, we went to another campsite. However, the concrete patio easily made up for this shortfall. - Andrasek

We have family and have stayed here multiple times. The staff is always friendly. We did notice this time that they have really improved the grounds maintenance. - RMahaney

The first night was a premium spot because we called to come in a day early. The next week was still a pretty awesome site, and it was next to friends. Staff was nice, even gave us a bag of cucumbers and squash from their garden. It rained a lot the week before we got there so everything was muddy/soggy, including the dog park. Nothing against the park at all. We stayed here last year in the A loop and that was much tighter. We enjoyed this year's visit much more. - DaBlairs

Electrical in sites is VERY poor. Day time volts were 100 to 108, night was 110 to 118. Right away my AC tripped due to low volts and I had to run on my generator. (this is a known issue). We only spent Monday and Tuesday there then camped the rest of the week at the ATTACHED drag strip. I was told it would cost $10, after she checked the price, to dump waste water Sunday after the event. When I showed up to dump on Sunday I was told since it wasn't an event of Dallas's it was $30. Sundays attendant informed me the person who checked and said $10 on Monday was wrong. It cost $35 to say during the week but $30 to dump? Two years ago they let us dump free after since they are connected. At least 90% of the 500+ campers that week showed up for the drag strip but they say the event wasn't connected to the campground. I will be looking for alternate lodging next Hot Rod Reunion. - Greg Iowa

Checked in and were told to park anywhere. Map was of no help. No visible site numbers. Sites had to share water hookup. Electric service was not useable. Voltage was low never above 90 volts. Had to run our own generator to run air conditioner. Don't waste your money here. Expensive boondocking!!! - Rkserv

We just stayed here one night on our way to our final destination. However, I would go back again. I have never seen a campground that had an amusement/water park on its property! There is also a race track. The Good Guys had a show there that weekend and it was fun to see all the cars. The track did close down at quiet time and we had no problems with any kind of noise. We only had one issue and maybe this was because it was off season but no one showed us to a site. It appears to be first come first served and the lots are not well numbered or at least not easily seen. We wanted 50 amps and those are sprinkled thru out the park and again with little or no signage. However, there is lots to do at the campground and the Corvette Museum is close by. - Let'sGo!

This park has uneven sites. So much so that, even with the use of the on-board RV leveling Jacks, we couldn't extend our bump outs.
This park is very unclean. The bathrooms (showers/commodes) are filthy and in need of maintenance, cleaning and updating.
The laundry facilities are the same. The machines are rusty (inside and out). I was afraid to use them over concern that the rust would bleed onto my clothes during the wash cycle. I had to take our camping laundry to an off-site laundromat.
Beyond the uncleanliness of the amenities, the grounds too are unkempt. The front sites (visible front he road) are mowed and weedeated. The back sites are not.
The camp directs you to walk your pets in a "designated area," that is all well and good if they would actually direct you to where that "designated area" is, which they did not. Everyone here seems to have a different opinion about where that is. The most common place seems to be by a large trash heap in the middle of the park. I walked my dog near that spot in the day, but was hesitant to at night. The pile of wood debris in the middle of your campground is dangerous. There are used boards with very large nails sticking up...just waiting for a child to fall or step on them and need an ER visit for tetanus shot and stitches. ed boards with very large nails sticking up...just waiting for a child/pet/anyone to fall or step on them and need an ER visit for tetanus shot and stitches.
We had an overnight stay on Saturday night. This was BYOB and Karaoke night on the office porch (not far from our camper). The more the crowd drank, the louder and more off pitch the Karaoke singers became. They started at 5 PM and continued until 10:00 PM. We had planned phone calls to family back home and a movie in our camper. The karaoke began and remained so loud, even inside our own RV, we were unable to keep our plans. - George Hall III

I stayed there in 2006 for at least a year and loved it. Met some great friends. I would go back. Dirt sites are very close and open to sun. Picnic table. - s12552001

I stopped here looking for one nights rest. The staff was very polite and helpful. The campground is catering to mostly permanent setups and the newest RV in was at least 20 years old. I did not see any open sites except for the small one they put me on. It would be too small for anything over my 21 footer. I did my laundry here and while the machines have been well used. Some had rust and some were out of order. My clothes came out clean and dry. Everything remotely movable was chained and padlocked. If you want cheap camping and not a large rig it would be OK, but if rough looks aren't your style I would keep looking elsewhere. - Goinmobile
