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. We camped at Cummins Ferry Campground & Marina in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Cummins Ferry Campground & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Cummins Ferry Campground & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice, quiet, clean campground. Drive back into the park is along 2 lane country roads but is not a problem - just take your time. No tree problems along the road to the park or in the park. As you go down the hill into the park driving a large motorhome or 5th wheel you might wonder what you're getting into, but don't worry, no issues. Park owners are extremely friendly and hospitable. Park is secure, requiring a key card to gain entry past the access control gates. Campground sits along the Kentucky River. You will probably not get any cell phone signal while in the park due to the parks location, but the park has excellent Wi-Fi. We had no issue with no cell service as we made day trips that got us back into cell phone range. In fact, just driving to the top of the parks driveway normally got us a cell signal. Good park to stay at if you want to do the Bourbon Trail tour. We camped at Cummins Ferry Campground & Marina in a Motorhome.

Note: The price reflected is based on a weekly rate. Park is very nicely maintained. Paved interior roads with grass between sites. Pull through sites are very long and have ample spacing between each. The pull throughs are curved and a little narrow, so rig placement can be a little interesting. Very peaceful and quiet. The road from the highway to the park is a very narrow two lane country road. Be careful as there are many blind spots as you drive the road. The actual road to the park is just barely wide enough for two vehicles. Wi-Fi is free and works great. We camped at Cummins Ferry Campground & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

This is delightful park right on the Kentucky River. Staff was very friendly and helpful. There is lots of grassy space in the trees for tents. All roads are paved. Pull throughs in the center were nearly 100 feet long. The park is geared to families with children; it has a pool, expansive grassy areas and two playgrounds. The access road from Hwy 127 (state highway 1988) is 5.5 miles. It is 2 lane paved, but narrow, with several 20 MPH curves. Big fifth wheels drive it regularly; just go slow. Wi-Fi is a new system and it has bugs; it was down most of the time. Management is working to get it right. When it was up, it was blazing fast. Verizon signal is marginal at best. Bathhouse was clean, but not heated. Shower water was lukewarm making for a chilly shower. Rate is for a 10 day stay. We camped at Cummins Ferry Campground & Marina in a Travel Trailer.

Great place! Very well maintained by super-friendly owners. Good river walk trails. Key-pass gates keep the grounds secure at all times. About half the spots are taken by long-term or seasonal campers - lots of contractors in giant fifth-wheels. We wondered if we were intruding on an enclave, but everyone was extremely friendly & chatty. They even invited us to their annual chili party! We will definitely return. We camped at Cummins Ferry Campground & Marina in a Motorhome.

The park is located in a very scenic setting, which we enjoyed. The address we had for the park was not exactly where the park was located. It was about 2 miles further down a country road. The location of the park has easy access to Old Fort Harrodsburg, which was very interesting, as well as Keeneland Horse Park. Our pull through lot was very spacious. There was a nice playground. On the downside, the camp store was pretty smoky and did not have very regular hours. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Would stay here again.

Wonderful RV park. Kind of far off road (5.2 miles) but well worth the inconvenience. Riverfront, very pretty, well-maintained, friendly owners. We happened to be here for the fourth of July and they had lots of activities planned including a fireworks show on the 3rd. We weren't expecting much but after taking our lawn chairs down to the river to watch the "bottle rockets," we were shocked at how impressive the firework display was. Our hat is off to the owners. First time we have ever seen those kind of fireworks without the 10's of thousands of people to go along with it! Didn't have a boat but they have a ramp to get into the water if you have one. We would love to visit this campground again. We camped at Cummins Ferry Campground & Marina in a Motorhome.

This campground being a slice of heaven is an understatement. I was 1 of 4 travelers in a group. After receiving a phone call the morning of check in from another campground in the area (Elizabethtown) that said we no longer had spots, we had to scramble to find a new campground. Found this campground online and was able to reserve 4 spots together for later that day. The owners were the most friendly and helpful people. The campground was well maintained and everything was clean. Had no problems backing into our campsite. We were in a 37' travel trailer and had to back in. Two of the others in our group had 37' fifth wheels and they didn't have problems with the curved spaces. The lack of cell phone service didn't seem to bother us. We used the pool alot because of the weather during our stay. When the hostess gives you directions to the campground, follow those as she takes you a different way then our GPS told us to go. Road is wider with her directions and less curvy. Would recommend this campground to anyone going to the area. Plan on returning next year.

Yes, it's serene and quiet, wide sites, grass, picnic tables, trees around the perimeter and beautiful setting down in this canyon next to the river. Pull thru spaces are on the radius (curved, for some reason?). We chose a back in with a view of the river approx. 20 ft below. There is a pool, 2 washers/dryers but no cable, no Cell, or TV reception because of the canyon. There is a small C-store to buy commodities.The bad news is, we were pulling a 35ft 5th wheel. Regardless of your rig, be warned the road down/up into/from the park was narrow, windy, one-lane and at approx. a 25 degree incline/decline for l/2 mile.This would be hair-raising if two rigs met at the same time coming/going because there is NO room to pull over, someone would have to back down on the curvy, heavily wooded, windy road. They charge $10 for a gate pass, refundable when leaving (suggest turn in your pass the night before to get refund because manager we found out was going into town at first light the day we were leaving and we wouldn't have received our refund). There is a small book exchange and video checkout. Would not stay here again. We camped at Cummins Ferry Campground & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

A little slice of heaven! This is how I described this campground to the owners of the park. It was clean, quiet, well maintained, and absolutely beautiful! There is a waterfall directly across the river from the campground office and boat launch/dock area. They have a nice, tree covered walking trail along the river which was very peaceful and pretty. The owners were extremely friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We will definitely be back and will recommend this campground to all of our friends and fellow campers.

This is a beautiful campground on the Kentucky River Palisades. The new owners take pride in the campground and it shows. The facilities are very clean and the grounds are well kept. The sites are big rig friendly, very spacious, with level cement pads and a fire ring and picnic table at each site. The owners are very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Cummins Ferry Campground & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

We were very impressed with this RV park. It is a little hard to find so definitely print out directions and a map; however the location is quiet and beautiful! The management and support staff were as nice as any I have ever met. Everyone went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. We camped at Cummins Ferry Campground & Marina in a Truck Camper.

What a beautiful, isolated place to camp! We were here in November, over Thanksgiving, and nearly had the place to ourselves. The new owners are really working hard to improve this already lovely park. It will be fun to stay again and see how much progress they have made. There was random cell phone coverage in this canyon, and almost no television. The owners provided a phone at the office for campers to use. An automatic gate (pay a deposit, get a gate card) provides plenty of security. Watch the very steep downhill approach to the park. We camped at Cummins Ferry Campground & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.
