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

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

We arrived in rainstorm and paid cash to owner who greeted us in her truck. It appears she may have been on her way out when we arrived. Handed over cash with no paperwork and took pull-thru for the one night we stayed. Hard to judge the campground since everything was muddy and full of puddles due to the rain. Wi-fi was iffy. - Da Keeffes
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

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

Our return visit to Cummins Ferry did not disappoint. This is a well maintained facility with super-friendly owners on site. We visited in the off-season, and found a few dozen long term campers settled in for the winter. All were friendly and kept their sites neat and tidy. Most sites offer full hook-ups. The center pull thru sites are a bit more spacious than those on the side. The campground is located at the bottom of the palisade cliffs, right against the Kentucky River. Yeah, it's a steep downhill to get here, but nothing you can't handle. Zero Verizon cell service in camp, but did get a dozen over the air TV stations. A small camp store has basic provisions. This is a secured property with key card entry, and I felt quite safe here. - Flying Mantis

We love this campground. The owners are wonderful and friendly. We love the seclusion and beauty of the waterfall. Other reviews commented on cell service being limited, but we used wifi calling and it worked beautifully. However, cell phone service is not important to us when camping. That is why we camp. There is a lot to do in the area. Just ask the owners for ideas. They are very helpful. - Wildcat Fan

Nice clean campground that you would expect from KOA. Site was level pull through but very tight with FHU & 50 amp. Restrooms/Showers very neat and clean. Campground has lots to do for the whole family. Very easy off/on I-75 - Barry3putt
Mar 2017 - $43.00
This is a nice park with shaded pull thru sites. The attendants were very nice and helpful. I am not a big fan of KOA and so not a member and therefore no discount but this park provided full hook up with cable for $43 which seemed reasonable. - Discus 277

The entrance and exit roads are a bit steep but doable. The roads could be wider. Not much swing room to get out of site.
Office staff friendly and quick check-in. - Jane-D100
Sep 2016 - $17.00
It was a bit confusing on where to check-in. The campground is on your right as you are coming down the road from I-75, we drove through, and there was no place to check-in, we pulled out and noticed another sign on the right, telling you that check-in was on the left side of the road at the ticket office. Once we checked-in, (and they do not carry change, if you use cash!) we drove back out to the campground. A small park, with long pull through gravel sites and roads. Site was level, good hook ups, and all worked as expected. Some sites are shorter than others, but we fit without having to unhook the toad. Interior roads are a bit narrow, but easy to navigate. WiFi worked great. This is a beautiful area and will be back to explore another time! - Vicki K

The campground is very easy access from I-75 as it is right off the highway with good roads. Internal roads and sites are gravel and were a bit dusty as it had been quite dry when we were there and campground and sites were easy to navigate. We drive a 45ft MH with a tow and were able to navigate the park and site without difficulty. As previously noted, the campground is across the road from the ticket office where one registers. There is a section of the campground for seasonal rentals and another section for overnight stays. There are three different lengths of sites in this section with several being 100 ft. Utilities and sewer hook-up were good and site was level. No amenities to speak of but an easy overnight stop. Wifi worked fine for email and internet surfing. We would stay here again. - LvR

Although this is just an open field type park, the spaces are wide and gravel. The Internet, water, power, and sewer work fine and it is easy to get in and out of. There are lots of shows and museums in the area. - Jimjul

The roads in this large campground are good and the sites are all paved. The campground has 161 sites. All have electric and water but only 18 of them are full hookup. Be sure to pay attention when making reservations if you want full hookups. The water hookups are shared between every other site and some of them are a long way from the campsite. I ended up getting out some hoses I haven't used in a while to reach our spigot. The road you turn on to get to the campground is at the bottom of a "trucks use lower gear" hill just before the Kentucky River Bridge. You will want to keep your speed down to make the turn onto Hwy 388 to get to the campground. Also, about half way down that same steep hill is the turn off for the Fort itself. You don't want that first turn, but rather, Hwy 388. While there is plenty of space between the individual campsites you might want to be aware that the back in sites aren't all deep enough for a larger RV. Also, if the campsite description says the slope is moderate or severe you can believe it. Some of the sites are pretty steep. Again, be sure to read the site description when making reservations. - nazpaz

The main attraction is the reconstructed Fort Boonesborough which was not yet open for the season. We were able to take a short trail from the campground to the fort and take exterior pictures. Bathrooms, showers and laundry were adequate if not pristinely clean. The staff were nice and the camp store had a good selection. We could not reach the water connection at our site so be aware the location of connections are not convenient on many sites. It rained while we were there and our campsite turned into a mud pit. Sites closer to the camp store were on higher ground. - CherylRV

Closer to Winchester than Richmond. Packed on weekends. TenGo internet, which is in all Ky State Parks, is absolute useless. Verizon signal decent. Highway noise til 3am was unbelievable, even on a weeknight, so they'll never see us again. - Bill Smith
