Bathrooms need some TLC. We camped in mid May and if you don't have shade it will be hot. Difficult to swim in lake, lots of rocks and no sandy area to enter. Campground was clean. - myo

Would have rated excellent if it had sewer. But restroom was close. Would have been nice if showers had curtain between actual shower and changing area to keep water out of that area. This site is 85 feet long and easy to pull through. Great view of lake. Did get good Verizon cell and MIFI. Also able to get DirecTV satellite connection. - phyllen

Great site - 3 bath houses, all sites very long. A lot of folks bring their boat and in many cases room for RV and boat on site. Picnic table, fire ring. Sites have great level portion - but while most are long, not all are level across the length. Great use of trees. Several sites in A loop immediately next to Nolin reservoir shore. Easy access from I65 or Bluegrass Parkway. For RVs of any size. Every site has dry gravel patio as well. - KB Farms

We had a wonderful time camping here. Our site was in the very back of the campground. Very quiet. More than enough room for 2 tents and 5 people. Restrooms were clean and nearby. Attendants were very friendly and helpful. The only complaint was we had to drive to the swimming beach. Could walk but I have health problems. - Floor_it

Very nice COE campground. RV sites are not on the river. A lot of trees. Good access for big rigs. They told us it fills up on weekends but we came in during the week and they had plenty open sites. Very nice and peaceful. - Coley

North Fork Park on Rough River Lake is clean, quiet, and well maintained. This is primarily a boaters' campground. Sites have a paved pad and gravel skirt, and are double-wide to accommodate a camper and boat. The main campground has a boat launch ramp, 4 electric-service loops, 4 non-electric loops, 3 bathhouses, 2 playgrounds, and CG host on site. Electric Loops C, D, E are tightly spaced, especially since most campers also have a boat parked on site. Electric Loop F is more spacious. Areas A & B are across the road and have direct lake access – this section is non-electric, very shady, has another bathhouse & host, playground, and swimming areas. We stayed in the main campground and walked the short distance to Area A to swim in the lake. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of this CG. Each site had a new-looking coated metal picnic table, food pole, utility table (for cutting fish), and fire pit. The park was well patrolled by the CG host, US Army Corps of Engineers (who manage the property), and local sheriff dept. Campers seemed affluent – big rigs & boats, friendly & tidy. The park was very quiet at night – not the usual crowd of drunken riffraff we have encountered in other state parks. We loved that the campground has no street lights – you can actually see the stars at night! Overall, this was a wonderful weekend spot. - Flying Mantis

Axtel is another splendid CoE property. Well-maintained, clean, quiet, and comfortable. A huge sandy beach is located near the entrance. The campground winds around a cove in two directions and many sites have a view of the water. The A loop has the tightest turns and the least attractive sites, including a loud buzzing water treatment plant and road noise directly behind. Best sites are in Areas B-E with plenty of shade, and large gravel pads. Many sites in these sections have direct access to the water where you can beach your boat, fish, or jump in for a swim. Several Buddy sites are also available for camping with friends. Area G (numbered 121-137 sites) are located on a hill without access to the lake, but most have good views and deep shade.
Areas I and H are only open on holiday weekends. Both are along the tail waters instead of the main lake. Area I is located high on the cliffs, while Area H is down near the water.
We were here on a busy summer weekend and the CG was quiet at night. Two hosts are on property and the CoE rangers patrol regularly. Really nice lake destination and we will be sure to stay here again. - Flying Mantis

McDaniel, KY Axtel COE Campground. Great COE campground with waterfront and water view sites. Most sites require some leveling but didn't see any extreme. There are some big rig friendly sites just make sure you research or call to inquire. W/E or Electric Only or Nonelectric sites available, dump station onsite. Each site has gravel/blacktop pad, fire ring, picnic table and fish cleaning station. There is a beach and playground. Very calm campground in our eyes even when mostly full. Great places to fish from shore or there is marina across street. Bathhouses pretty standard, charmin toilet paper!! No hand soap though, clean. Verizon and ATT worked very well no issues. One negative thing but not huge no selling of firewood or ice within campground had to go 1 mile up the road to hardware store to get. Roads to get to campground not bad typical lake country roads once off major but very doable just take your time. - CmcDowell

This campground is excellent! Large sites, sites on the outer edge of the loops had good privacy. Sites on the inside of the loops not so much privacy. Bathhouse is very clean, as well as the laundry room. We stayed for three nights and visited Mammoth Cave N.P., ziplined and toured the towns in the area of Mammoth Cave. This is probably the nicest campground we stayed in during this trip. Highly recommend the campground. - Ortep

We've camped at this park for 10 years & up until this last time we camped, we've had no complaints. The grass hadnt been cut on the entire side of the campground we were in. We got there on a Thurs & stayed until Mon & the bathhouse had not been cleaned until Sun evening & only because we complained to the attendant about it. Even then, it was not cleaned well. The floor was mopped but hadn't been swept so the dirt was just moved around basically. They weren't just dirty, they were unsanitary. The attendant tried to say they'd been cleaned everyday but there were things on the floor & the commodes that were there every single day & wouldn't have been had they been cleaned. It was obvious they hadn't been cleaned and in days. It looked like there was mold in the shower stall walls also. Until this last vist, the park was always very well kept & maintained, we were very disappointed especially when we complained & instead of making it right, we were just told a bold faced lie. - Heidi J

The park was beautiful, well kept, and quiet. Could have used a better view of the lake, but we got the impression that they were trying to keep a buffer zone around the lake, so that's OK. Our site was very large and level! It's a long way to the store, but that's a plus if you plan ahead. - MolliesPack

Dog Creek is our go-to spot for lake camping, and we return every year. It's a smaller campground, less crowded than others on Nolin Lake, and has direct access to the water from many sites. We like the privacy and seclusion of Dog Creek, but our city friends got a bit bored. The only activity offered is the lake, and we spent 3 afternoons floating in the cove at the beach, which wasn't enough to keep their (overactive) grandson entertained. Next time we return to Dog Creek we'll bring the right kind of company who know how to kick back and chill at a campground way out in the country. - Flying Mantis

We really loved the views from most everywhere in the park. Each campsite was clean and spacious. Each is equipped with water and electric except for a few tent sites. People brought their boats and there was easy access to putting them in the water. There's a lovely beach we did not take advantage of swimming there. We found it very comfortable, quiet and people were very friendly. We would strongly recommend this location to people but be aware there is no cell reception. You would want to come well-equipped with supplies. - John-Jean

An older Corps park. Many sites not very level. Quite tight, compared to other Corps parks. In need of some basic maintenance (doesn't look like grass has been cut in weeks). Mostly locals who camp here often, and all seem to know each other, but lots of families and well behaved kids.
Not many sites that are big rig friendly, and a dump station that is very difficult to get in to. (We found it easier to just use our porta tank).
We generally prefer the COEs, but won't return to this one. - Mark&Jane

We found a secluded site on parcel level ground and overlooking water tails. We have been back 3 times already this year and love that spot. The coons are a little annoying at night and will pretty much walk up to you! Our site was clean and well maintained! Love this place for a adult camping adventure. - tanyay78

Why oh why did we stop here? The site was so narrow we could hold a hot dog on a stick out our window and roast it on the neighbor's smoky "fire". Thankfully, they were friendly and tried to talk quietly til about midnight when they retired. There are a few wide sites at one end, and they get progressively narrower along the road. Turns are tight. For us, this reinforced the need to better read RV Park Reviews. - Windjammer

Stayed at this park with a group of friends. These are equestrian/group sites and about a 1/2 acre each. There were several groups and several single families spread out over the generous sites. The large sites are very private and we had no trouble with a travel trailer, two tents and 4 cars on a single site. The loop is paved and there are generous parking areas for horse trailers and trucks. There are several adjacent hiking and biking trails as well as a charming dirt road down to an old Baptist Church in the woods. There was minimal evidence of horses but abundant wildlife. This is 20 min and a ferry ride away from the Mammoth Cave visitor's center and cave but it feels like its 100 away. RVs cannot cross the ferry so must come in across other roads. The toilets are well maintained pit toilets and there are no showers. I assume they would let us dump in the main campground but its over an hour drive to get there without using the ferry. Everyone was impressed with this little gem and we plan to be back. - Dennchristen

A lot of sites will probably fit Class C RV's but look tight if you have a Class A. There are a couple of sites that have electric but it is dry camping for the most part. Campstore is close with pay showers. Bathrooms are in every loop and cleaned regularly. The bathrooms are also air conditioned which is a nice bonus. Mammoth Cave Visitor Center is maybe 1/2 mile away and there is also access to the trails around the forest from the campground. Lots to explore and see. We had a pull through site which fit our 24' RV fine. If we had a tow vehicle that probably would have fit as well. - Bogie71

Great stop for cave tours. Dry camp only, but plenty of water faucets and restrooms nearby. Lots of trees, no satellite service. Spotty cell service. Lots of firewood stacked throughout the campground, free for the taking. It takes an effort to find a level friendly site. - rvrrat520

Great spot for staying while exploring Mammoth Cave. Campground is a short walk from visitor center where all guided tours of the cave start.
If you are into birding there are many different species you can watch from your campsite. There are also miles hiking trails but make sure you take an underground cave tour. We've taken two. and hope to to back and take another.
There are no hookups so if you need AC or water at your site then check the other campgrounds in the area. Just remember it's a few miles onto the park so you will need to drive in from other campgrounds.
During the season you will need to book your stay through reserveamerica.com. Off season (check with them for dates) you can usually just drive in and pick a site.
Sites are among the trees so there is plenty of shade on most sites.
Sites are packed stone and you will need to do some minor leveling on most sites if RVing it.
IMPORTANT!!! There is poison ivy growing on the trees at almost every site!!! Be especially aware if you have small children that may go near it.
This is a National Park so they wont do anything about it.
Campground has water, dump station, and a small general store.
I gave it a rating of 8 since there aren't hook-ups on the sites (although water and dump station are available) and there's poison ivy all over the place. - Old Radios
