Looks like at one time it was a nice park, sadly run down and mostly 'permanent' residents now. Very nice staff, looks like they are doing what they can. - Kbtx

We were here over the Fourth of July weekend so we tried to take that into consideration, but there were some things we couldn't overlook. First of all, the staff was wonderful and couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. They stopped by our site several times. Unfortunately the actual campground itself was in need of some desperate repairs. Across from our site was an old shower house (?) with a port-a-potty in front. The shower house was inoperable so the port-a-potty was the only bathroom for the 30+ people on our end of the camp site. In order to use a sink you had to walk all the way to the entrance. Our first night we were awoken at 11:00 by a chainsaw one of the other campers was using to cut their firewood and our next door neighbors were setting off mortar fireworks that were raining down on our RV. There were cars parked EVERYWHERE and the tent site below us kept driving their truck through our site and parking it next to our chairs. The second night wasn't quite as eventful. The woman next door was walking around without her pants on and they also had visitors so there were at least a dozen people crammed on one site. If you need a place to stay near Nicholasville then this is pretty much the only option, but I would try to stay somewhere else if possible. - coldwaterconch

I hate to be totally negative so, the 50 amp service was good. Wi-Fi was okay, but charged for each day. Hookups on wrong side of RV. Park Very run down. Lots were part grass part large rocks. Lots of old, I mean, Old trailers. We had reserved 5 days, when checking in changed that to 2. After 1 night, we left, they did refund the 2nd day lot rental. Staff was friendly. Would not camp here again - dj4pres

Little crowded, several permanent RVs there. Little loud after midnight. Had to pay $10.00 gate card deposit that you get back when leave. We left on Sunday Morning after 8:00 a.m. And no one was on duty to return card and retrieve the $10.00. I left card and my card asking to mail my $10.00, which they did. I also paid $10.00 extra for the pull thru lot, which was in a curve with lots behind you. - Sissy Wommack

We stayed here for our visit to the wonderful Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill just 9 miles away. The park is well-maintained. It is on the cliffs over looking Lake Harrington, and crammed full of seasonal guests. We arrived late in the day and got a back-in spot that was a little short for our 30 feet, but we parked at an angle and were able to keep our nose off the road. There is a marina a short walk down the road. We swam our dog there. We were surprised to see the sign saying that the marina charges for launching kayaks and canoes as well as power boats. That area of Kentucky has mostly narrow windy roads, and the road into this campground is no exception. - ShoreXplorers

This park is under new ownership and the new owners will be adding stronger Wi-Fi and cable TV next year. It's in the hills, on terraced sites and quiet. Lots of seasonals stay here as the marina is very close. A beautiful, man-made lake setting. Cell phone service is spotty due to the mountains. TV reception was good for our rig, as was the internet. If I lived closer I'd look into a seasonal site here. Nice place with friendly staff. We were here for a family reunion so spent several nights. - diamondg

This small campground is located on the Pioneer Playhouse property, and is offered for the convenience of their patrons. As such, it was a nice amenity to have and enhanced our experience in Danville. We enjoyed a play in the open air theater, ate a swell BBQ supper offered at the playhouse, and toured historic Danville for a day.
The campground is pretty bare bones. This isn't a state park or luxury resort, so you should lower your expectations. It is maintained to some degree, but the sites are a bit short and close together. Most spots are filled with seasonal campers - looks to be staff and actors living there for the summer. Overall, to have a CG within the Playhouse compound is a bonus, even if it's a little rough around the edges. - Flying Mantis

This is a tight park. The only decent sites are right in the front and even those are difficult to get into. The pull-through sites have concrete picnic tables on each sides and large branches hanging over the top. They are fairly level but there wasn't one that I felt comfortable trying to get my rig into. As far as I was able to tell, there are only two sites that have 50 amp hookups and those are short back-in sites. I could not get my motorhome into one of those. Don't arrive after dark, it's impossible to see anything. Other than that, it's a nice little town to visit. If you're just passing through for the night or there to see the show it is probably okay if you have a small trailer. - sixtires58

We had planned to stay at this park, but after looking at this campground, we decided to move on. Although there are 36 sites shown on their web site only 17 sites near the main entrance are suitable for RVs. The narrow loop road and sites were on gravel. The back-in sites were over grown and were on a slope. The pull-thrus were long and deeply rutted. There were mature trees that were not trimmed properly. Large sharp limbs could easily cause damage to a roof. All sites have side by side hookups. The other sites (areas 2 and 3) were located in back of the playhouse and were on grass. It appeared that these other sites were not maintained. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel and would not recommend this place. - adsaxs

I'll echo what the last couple of reviews said. Water and ele. only with dump station, flat, fairly quiet, good acess. Was told restrooms/showers were being redone. Did not see any work happiness while here. Many long term residents, but not a bother. - waxhands

We spent 3 nights here exploring the great town of Berea. Not the best park but it was quiet. No sewer & dump station does not have water. No wifi. Worker met us and directed us to our spot. Pull thru sites. Only water & electric. Full hooks with sewer were all full with what appears to be full time residents. Same rate with or without sewer. Not sure we'd stay here again. Looks rough all around. Needs a good grooming. We stayed in a motorhome. - Lazyp123

Not a bad park by any means, we've stayed in far worse. But pros and cons about balance out.
- Close to interstate and Walmart and lots of fast food restaurants
- Friendly and helpful managers
- Neatly mown and clean grounds
- Good price, $25 for water/electric or full-hookup sites. Unfortunately all full-hookup sites taken by long-term RV's.
- All sites easy to get in and out, mostly pull-thrus.
- No full-hookup sites available, all taken up by long-term RVs
- They have a dump station but there is no water available to rinse hoses
- All buildings rather (to very) run down.
- All bath/shower(?) rooms stay locked, cannot access.
- All ground very flat so if rainy weather there is some standing water
Overall not a bad park for overnight or short stays. - rdkeith
Jul 2016 - $26.00
Pros: Easy on/off from I-75, and only $26/night.
The woman at check in was on the phone and helping me, but she put me close to the one bathhouse, and a little shade, which was an upgrade without changing the price.
Cons: Showers only had a short bench for your stuff. Had to try 3 showers to be able to control the temperature. Shower head is 8 feet up so no adjusting it.
Didn't seem to be a lot of vacationers staying; mostly full timers. - kidphd

Older campground at Exit 78. Has a small store and hardware store next door. Laundry, two swimming pools, large tent area and RV storage. No WiFi while we were here. Easy access to I-75 or historical area. Spaces close together, old-tree shade covers half the park. Workers occupy the side of the park opposite the pull-thrus. Local car wash next door. Fairly quiet even though it is off a busy highway. It rained hard while we were here but the water drained off quickly. We spent 3 nights there. - Ginger C Brown

Very small spaces, the adjacent site's sewer hose was right next to the picnic table. Their "rules" state pets must be on leashes and never left unattended. But several cats were running loose, and two dogs in an outdoor pen(also against the rules) and another two small dogs came running after us as I walked my dogs. Maybe long term guests don't have to follow the rules. Would not recommend this park to anyone with pets. - Ljbtn

DO NOT TAKE MCAFFE LANE which is basically a one lane road. We took it in a 40' motorhome. Go to 1988 and take that. The lady in the office was extremely nice, the campground is nice with lots of full-timers. We had #72 which is a LONG pull-thru. We didn't hook-up to water as it was at the very end of the pull-thru and we didn't have enough hose to reach it. Other than that it was a nice park. - kathiecarlson

We did Lexington, Bardstown, and the Kentucky Bourbon Trail from this staging point. Nicest campground we have stayed at in the past 30 days and 3200 miles of travel. This could be a destination camping spot. Several seasonal campers have already found it. Is literally down in a hollow. Three camp sites wide and about 3/4s of a mile long. Very well maintained and staff was exceptionally helpful. River right below the campground. High bluffs with a waterfall. Water access for boats and kayaks. Coming down Hwy 127 gps will put you onto a road which is marked "no RVs on this road" Heed the sign. Do not make the turn. Go one more road to the south. The gps designated road is just wide enough for one vehicle. No cell service, but wifi was free and worked fairly well for a camp ground. - Mike from Bama

We stopped here for one night after some touring along the "Bourbon Trail". This park is a little off the beaten path but along a beautiful drive to get to the park. The owners are very friendly and attentive. The park is gated. We were here a bit off season in early April so there were few overnighters but it seemed there were several snowbirds as well as empty units used by locals on the weekends, perhaps. The water and electric at our site were a bit far apart from each other for our 22 foot motorhome but we managed. We very much liked our site and the owners of this park. There is a laundry facility but I didn't use it or the bathrooms. I noted there were two washers and two dryers. The ladies' room had two toilet stalls and 3 shower stalls and was kept very clean. - Gawa

This was an overnight stop on way from northern OH to AL. We stopped here 6 years ago, and conditions have not changed; it is old, little used, and seeming to go down hill as an entertainment center. Talked to one gentleman who has been coming for years and he decried the slow decline. However, the older section (with a bathhouse and only 30 amp service) was fine. Sites were close but since few folks in, not a problem. Our site, though dirt, was amazingly level, WiFi worked well, and they had loads of free cable channels. Unlike last time, the gentleman checking me in gave he a cable guide, password for WiFi, and a map. Restrooms were clean and showers clean. Place needs TLC in places, but saw several groups enjoying their visit, sitting out after dinner and all were very pleasant and friendly. Clearly a good spot for an overnight on a trip, but unless you want to be there on the weekend for a concert (and the Passport America rate is not available then), it's not a destination location. - Too-wow

This was an overnight stop for us on are way to Cincinnati, we have stayed here before. The campground is easy off and back on I75. We requested a pull-thru so we didn't have to disconnect our Toad. The PT was long enough for our 35 ft MH and car. Site was reasonably level. PT sites are opposing, so your picnic table and your neighbor's may be right next to each other We were in site 40, Water, Sewer and 50 amp (voltage was 117-122) all worked well. Cable did not work, WiFi was better than most campgrounds these days and our AT&T cells had 4 bars. Our site was paved, inner roads were stone. Big trees prevented our satellite to connect. Being just an overnight for us we didn't attend their movie night, but did stop by the 'Barn' for their $5.00 Saturday breakfast, which was great. The staff was very friendly. We'll stay here again when in the area. - Russ G

Easy exit from I-75. There seemed to be some long term campers here, but NOT permanent residents. We arrived late but our paper work was waiting for us. Though we didn't use it there was a covered outdoor kitchen with sinks and stoves. What a great idea. The campground is on the side of the hill and many of the sites are not level. - Hidden Barb

We stay here frequently when traveling I75. It is a very basic park, but we come for the shows at the Barn. Check their schedule, they have big names during the summer and at Christmas, but also usually have a show every weekend and it varies. - fulltimerjan

Stopped here while traveling south on I-75. Perfect place for an over night stay. The Passport America rate of $17.50 made it an easy choice. It is only about 1/2 mile from I-75 but there wasn't much road nose at all. Cable TV, and water pressure were very good. True - this is a bare bones location, but easy in and out makes it worthwhile. We would stay here again when traveling I-75. - rv time
Jul 2017 - $15.00
This is a basic bare bones campground. It is ok for a one night stay. As others stated the check in is across the street. The spots are level. It had rained a lot and all spots seemed to be ankle deep in water. We were able to hook up to water and electric but the sewer hook up was under water. Not a problem, we only stayed for the night. - esta34950

This is a very pretty, pleasant campground, with much shade and comfortable space between sites. We had looked at the map and selected a site (153) on a corner, with ample space on both sides. We arrived on a Saturday, and the park was absolutely crammed with campers, with many children and some adults roaming all the roads on bicycles. It was an intense family scene. Most of the sites had multiple vehicles in addition to the camper, filling the spaces between sites. At least half the sites had campfires going, on a very hot day(!), filling the campground with thick smoke. We had to seal ourselves up in our motorhome in order to breathe. The one good thing was that the campers were reasonably quiet, with no loud music whatsoever. Sunday morning, they started pulling out, leaving absolutely no trash behind, and the place was mostly empty and clean by 2 p.m. If you want a peaceful, relatively smoke-free experience, come here Sunday through Thursday. Staff was pleasant and helpful. - pompomgirl

Park is located south of Lexington, KY. We stayed twice within a month while a family member recovered from an surgery in a Lexington hospital. Campground store is open until 10 PM each night. When traveling to and from the hospital, open til 10 PM was a nice convenience. Our locations were peaceful which allowed family members to sleep during the day hours. - Ky Farmer
Jul 2017 - $35.00
Easy check-in process, greeted by friendly folks at the office. Site was of adequate size to handle truck and fifth wheel without having to unhook. Be aware of the mud if it rains. Nice site if it is dry but very messy if it rains. - Alaska Jim
