9 Parks near Lancaster, Kentucky

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. - Scott Charlton

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. - Badge

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. - dj4pres

Stayed two nights in the 50-amp camp and really enjoyed the peace and quiet. Everything worked as expected; cable was very good. Ample room for walking the dog along the creek or on the gravel roads. - mrsweeble

We are Passport America Lifetime members and have stayed at this member park in the past. To be honest, at PA half-price it is adequate and a convenient stop on I-75, but if you compare it to another campground in the area and the amenities they offer for a couple of $$ more than this campground, there is no comparison. No restrooms, no showers, weak to nil WiFi and poor cable service in an open treeless field with gravel roads and semi-level gravel pads. We stay in approximately 25 to 35 campgrounds a year and this campground at full price is by far the worst value we have come across. - Adirondack Jack

We have stayed here several times. each time the park seems to go downhill a little more. This time, the fence at the entrance had boards coming off, the sites could use more gravel as they were very muddy. Wi-Fi was none existent. Good AT&T as well as power and water pressure. We stayed here in a 40 ft rig. - walt66

I was apprehensive about choosing this park after reading some of the reviews. However, I was very pleasantly surprised. We did not hear any highway noise either inside or outside the coach. While the entry and exit roads are a bit steep, I had no problem entering or leaving the campground. Our rig is a 41-foot motor home, and we unhooked the toad after entering our pull-thru site. The site was level so that my automatic leveling system worked fine. I do not agree that big rigs should avoid this campground.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The manager stood by and watched my dish antenna search for satellites. He said that we could move if I could not receive a signal. However, there was no problem, and our site was indeed satellite friendly as I had requested. He also delivered our forwarded mail to our site. I had forgotten that I had mail forwarded here, and may have left without it if he had not brought it to me.
I am giving the campground an overall rating of 8. My rating would be 9 if I had been able to use the Wi-Fi. Although, I believer that the campground was more than ½ empty, I had to use my Verizon Wi-Fi the entire time. We stayed here for 3 days, and would definitely stay again if we were in the area. - CarlW

Got in late due to leaving repair facility late in Indiana. Road into park is up hill, swerving and very narrow with no shoulders and broken asphalt! Getting into the site was very difficult even though it was 70' long - very tight corners. Very narrow sites. Concrete pads that are broken and had pot holes. A few trees placed in the way. Not recommended for large rigs towing unless you unhook. Park in need of TLC. Would not stay here again. - Retired FL CSM

Semis with jake (engine) brakes on the hill oh so close to the park simply ruined my stay here. They are so loud! The park is OK, sites are very close together, bath is clean, but a bit chilly. Pretty hard to get in up the steep hill and pretty hard to negotiate the turns once in. Pull through sites leave your connections more than 20 feet away if you are towing. - TBBGII

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

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 only stayed 1 night. Staff was very friendly, site was level, it was well maintained. Would stay here again. Felt very safe. Lot spacing was very close with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface was gravel. - Lesterosu

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

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

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

This park is in a great area for tourist, crafting lovers and artist, including those looking for baskets, carvings and various other handmade objects. The park is owned and operated by a Christian family. They have raised their children to respect and to appreciate others. The park is very quite and clean. There are no dilapidated vehicles or travel trailers.
There are many full hookup large big rig pull thru's available. There is also a dump station available if needed.
They only allow the best full timers to stay full time; but welcome all those traveling or just camping for a day, a week or even a month. This is a great place to stay for whatever time you have available. You may enjoy it so much you will decide to be a regular visitor or to just full time it here. Great people, place and town. Come try them out. Happy Camping! - We Love to RV
