We only stayed one night as a stopover, but we were very impressed with this park and would come back for a longer stay. Beautiful pool - clean and well maintained. Fishing pond was used a lot and provided a gorgeous backdrop for our site. Friendly staff, shady sites with a nice layout which makes each site feel spacious. Very quiet, no traffic noise at all. Only reason not to give it a 10 was because our site was not very level, but we didn't even unhook our trailer, so it made very little difference. We camped at Glendale Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed in off season so pool was closed. Looked a good size with nice large fenced patio and pavilion. Small lake adjacent. Site wasn't very level but campground is on hillside. Due to off season our site was electric only. Bathroom older but clean with lots of hooks in shower area to hang my stuff. Pet peeve of mine is showers without hooks to hang your stuff away from wet floor and benches. We camped at Glendale Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed here twice in the past year, while travelling back and forth between Florida and Ohio. This is a good spot for us, as it is close to I-65. The access roads are country roads, but we had no trouble navigating them in our rig, a crew cab Chevy Silverado towing a 35 foot 5th wheel. The inner roads are gravel, as are the sites. The people in the office have always been extremely nice. Will definitely stay here in the future. Can't comment on the restrooms as we use our own. Sites have very good electrical service, appears to be recently updated. Water pressure is good. We camped at Glendale Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This an older campground that caters to seasonal campers. Roads are very tight and rough. Our site was hard to level on and had heavy tree cover. The park has a nice looking pond for fishing and a nice pool, of which we used neither. The trees at the entrance road are in bad need of trimming and brushed the side of your motorhome. We camped at Glendale Campground in a Motorhome.

Well, we stayed here because it is about halfway between Atlanta, GA and Milwaukee, WI. It is not a bad place, there is a pond and pool, lots of open space for kids to play, walk dogs etc. There were a lot of permanent residents, but enough campers to make it feel o k. Convenient ti interstate, and Elizabethtown has a lot of history. Owners gracious- lead us to the site in a golf cart, and dirt/grass site was very level. Lots of large trees. We camped at Glendale Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The owner checked us in upon arrival. She was pleasant and cheerful. We saw her out and about each day: mowing, in the pool area, interacting with campers. The pool was clean and very large. This campground was so peaceful! We had a great time. We camped at Glendale Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We visited Mammoth Cave and took a tour. Our guide was amazing!

Cheddar's Restaurant near Kohl's in Elizabethtown was spectacular! Delicious food!

The Elizabethtown Sports Complex is awesome! We came down to surprise our nephew who was playing baseball there. It's called, modern and spacious!

Nice place. We stopped for an overnight and were happy. Lots of full timers, but all were nice and kept their places kept up. Lots or room between sites as well. The pool was nice to relax in as well for the whole family. Site was level and had water and power. We camped at Glendale Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Pulled in on a Tuesday without reservations and stayed for 2 days. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Pull through with W/E, and use of dump station. About a mile from exit 86 on I-65. Road is narrow but well maintained. Clear signs all the way to the entrance. Interior roads are gravel, and a bit rough in places. Some turns might be tight for larger rigs, but my 28' had no problems at all. Site was dirt and gravel and quite level. Electric box was farther away than usual, but not excessive. Campground has large pond/lake and a swimming pool. Plenty of shade from mature trees. A large percentage of seasonal sites, some cluttered, but not trashy. Campground is kid friendly and there were several well behaved children about. WiFi was excellent. Cell reception on my phone was spotty. Satellite TV might be problematic at some sites. Overall, a very well kept family style Campground that we would revisit without hesitation. We camped at Glendale Campground in a Motorhome.

I called the park around noon and spoke to a nice woman who said to call back when we arrived around six. We were delayed a bit, but she was still pleasant and told us where we could park. The signage is very helpful in locating the park. We handled the payment over the phone, and I had to call back a couple of times to clarify things, which she didn't mind. We had a beautiful, side to side level site. Hookups were good and well maintained (no sewer, but a dump site was available). Yes, it was on a bit of an incline. Our 21 foot trailer had no problem maneuvering in the park

Bathroom/shower on the back of the office was clean though a little small.

There are long term residents on one side of the park, but the area is well maintained and doesn't give you the impression of a "trailer park".

We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Glendale Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Mark's Feed Store in Elizabethtown had excellent barbecue, 10 miles away. It's a nice town with plenty of shopping and restaurants.

We just overnighted but it was a pleasant and quiet park. Very friendly staff. Appeared to be mostly people who were there for the season. The site was large with full hookups. A large pool and a fishing lake. By 9 PM it was totally quiet. There was a huge area for walking the dogs and it was very clean. We will probably use this campground many times again as we will often travel through Elizabethtown Ky. Highly recommend it. We camped at Glendale Campground in a Motorhome.

We had a great time staying here. Very friendly staff and so were the residents. Lots of kids for mine to play with. Everything was clean. They happened to have a pig roast the weekend we stayed and it was a big event where everyone attended and the food was delicious. We loved the kid friendly environment and even stayed an additional night. The price is great! We camped at Glendale Campground in a Motorhome.

Many seasonal sites. Nice small pool and a fishing pond. Large sites, cheap firewood ($10 for 24 very large pieces). Sites are side to side level which is very hard to find most of the time. Very friendly staff but hardly ever in the office. Had a pig roast the day of arrival and we were invited for $5 each. They said everyone should bring a dish but since we were just getting there, not to worry about it. A little noisy the first night with the seasonals as is usually the case at most campgrounds that have seasonal sites. Movie playing loud till after 11:30. We camped at Glendale Campground in a Travel Trailer.

A wooded campground on the south end of Elizabethtown. The roads and sites are covered in large chunk gravel. This campground is not made for rigs over 36'. We had trouble with our 38' MH, getting it situated just right. Sites are close together, and unlevel side to side and front to back. Wi-Fi unusable. Cable is very good. Water is a spigot hookup, sewer level with the ground. Roads getting around are narrow and winding through trees. There is an escort to the site, (just make sure you don't lose them). Check in 2pm, check out 1pm. Early checking and late checkout incurs fees. Long termers are a strange lot. I wouldn't use the term friendly, more like nosy. There is no literature given out, so no rules. Lots of kids running about during the day, and lots of dog barking and off leash. For me, not a safe feeling place to be. We paid for 2, stayed for one...and that was too long. The best part, is that it is convenient to a Pilot station that some of the cheapest gas in "Etown" and "the ville". Can be a tight fit though. We camped at Glendale Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground for a short-term stay, but the seasonal sites look close together. Great cable TV and great Wi-Fi. Laundry is dated and is also used as a storage room. Bathrooms are clean but also a bit dated. Lovely lake with free fishing and a nice pool. Very friendly, helpful owners. I bet this place is really busy in the summer, but in November it was nice and peaceful. If you're coming from the north though, be advised that Puckett Road is a gravel road. We missed it, thinking it was a driveway. We took the next paved left and then left on Sportsman Lake Road. You can also turn left on 1st Union Road (paved road before Puckett Road) then right on Sportsman Lake Road. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Glendale Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
