Beautiful, well maintained campground. Easy to navigate interior roads, sites are paved asphalt. Nice playground for kids, pool area (when weather dictates filling it), bathroom/showers clean. Good location relative to Lexington. Many sites are slanted/canted and finding level can be frustrating. No sewer hookups but 2 dump stations in park. Lots of trees, may affect satellite reception. The water in showers is not adjustable as to temperature, and between the heat & high pressure it felt like showering with a pressure washer. Garbage dumpsters are a good walk from many sites. Still, we would return here. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Motorhome.

A nice state camp. Good selection of things for kids. Utilities worked fine although our electric box was very rusty. Wifi was a bit frustrating connecting but may have been a compatibility problem. Nice shade from mature trees. Discounts for the Horse Park which is a very nice attraction. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Internal roads are paved, sites are level, paved (very narrow) and grass, and not very easy to back into as the roads are not real wide, facilities worked well, but are located at the back of the site. Staff were friendly, T-Mobile cell service was good 4G LTE. The park was quiet. For the cost they really should have sewer. We would stay here again. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate does not include the $7.50 assessed by Reserve America. The only way to make a reservation here. Lovely place to camp, so close to the Kentucky Horse Park and all it has to offer. Site was nice & level, although the actual pad for your Trailer/motorhome could be wider. Services were easy to access. Nice clean easy to use dump stations.

Campground is big rig friendly, all sites are paved, but they are a bit narrow. Some sites have shade, some do not. Electric and water at every site. Campground store is adequate, and just a couple of miles away there is a convenience store, Subway Sandwich Shop, a gas station, and liquor store. This park caters to horse people frequently due to the horse park events. Most of the time, you can get to the Kentucky Horse Park by driving or walking out the back gate. Showers were clean, bathrooms were clean. Campground personnel were friendly, helpful, and professional. Most sites are level, but some with inclines, but not severe. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Near the I-75 interchange there is a convenience store, Subway Sandwich Shop, a gas station, and liquor store. Also, just about 5 miles north on I-75 is lots of shopping - Lowes, Walmart, Tractor Supply (who also has propane) restaurants, retail shopping, gas stations, hotels, etc...

Park is open all year. Rates drop to $28. Water is turned off at sites until March, but you can get drinkable water at the dump stations. The restrooms are clean enough and they had a space heater running to keep it warm. Only one of the two restrooms is open during the winter season. The showers have water saver heads in them, so you get more of a lukewarm mist than a good hot shower. Sites are fairly large with a picnic table and fire ring at each site. There are not many trees. Wi-Fi is available. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Motorhome.

The setting is beautiful and quiet. Our space was level and easy to get in and out. It was not crowded when we were there, so we had plenty of privacy. The spaces are well arranged and there is a good distance between them. Would definitely stay there again if in the area. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Everything was great except the smell of the bathrooms. They where In good repair but stunk horribly. The site we where on was great but there where several very unlevel sites I would have been upset to have been surprised by. Would like a better description of individual sites online. All in all, I'll stay here again and look forward to it! We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Motorhome.

I wish they would update their Wi-fi so that the whole camp ground campers can get it. We were parked near the store and could not get it. We had to sit on the bench outside restrooms. Cable tv would have me there a lot. Thanks, I hope management will see this and make improvements. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Not sure how this place gets rated so high. We are full timers and found this to be one of our really disappointing stops. There are lots of trees with low branches, and the parking strips are very narrow. The strip we were on was about 4" inches higher than the muddy ground and the site was 8" to 10" out of level from front to rear. We needed to use our step ladder as an extra step. The young lady working in the office is abrupt and unfriendly. Worst of all are the flies. Lots and lots of flies. Maybe because there are no sewer hookups people are dumping their grey water in the grass? We've watched two of our neighbors do it. The other issue is the dog droppings. They're almost as thick as the flies. We've watched neighbors walk their dogs in empty spaces and not pick up after them. Most of the tenants seem to be folks that are using the horse facilities. They apparently don't pay any attention to the agreement they signed when they checked in. Bring extra steps, bug lights, ground covers, and empty tanks if you come. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice facility. Adequate spacing. E/W only. Dump station is convenient. Good location to visit Lex and UK.

Campground is part of larger park; however, entrance to the rest of the park is separate (fee). Nice grounds. Good for bike riding. The park was full when we were there but it didn't feel crowded. Dump station was convenient and fully equipped. Hosts were friendly and helpful. Not much parking at the check in station; be careful not to get blocked in. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Motorhome.

We stopped here as an overnight spot. We have a 38 foot RV and could not get level in the full hookup spot we were assigned. It was supposed to be one of the more level spots in the campground. The office assisted us and eventually we found a spot in the primitive electric area with 30 amp service. If you have a larger motor home, this is NOT the campground for you. That said, there are lovely fields for walking dogs and it is well located and visually appealing. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Motorhome.

The back-in sites here are excellent but I give it an 8 because wifi was very poor and there is no sewer. Taking showers in their shower room saves on the grey water situation. All sites are level and are conveniently located to the well-stocked store and refreshing swimming pool. Making reservations through Reserve America worked well.

This is a very large, busy, pretty campground with paved roads & site pads that are 30-50 feet apart. The spaces around the site pads are grassy with well-trimmed trees interspersed. All sites have picnic tables and some have fire pits, but the pads are not too level & fairly short. There are 2 bathhouses for 260 sites, so finding them clean was rare. There are a lot of kid areas. The WIFI did not work. We did get many OTA TV stations. They warn you that water pressure is high, so bring a regulator. Book a site on the outer loop and not backed towards the commons area so that no one is walking through your site to the bathhouse. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The office can call a free golf cart shuttle to the Horse Park. You can also order a cart from a local vendor for $70/day to use in the campground & to go to the Park. The office will help you. Reduced Park tickets can be purchased at the office too.

We have stayed at this campground multiple times in the last 16 years. Some times were good, others not so much. Our visit this time was average. For the regular RVer, it's best to stay here when there isn't a horse show going on (check the calendar; avoid weekends). The loop that includes the pool is very busy in the summer. Power is good, wifi is spotty, be sure you have a pressure regulator for the water as it is very high. Campground personnel were more visible this stay than in years past, but many folks still drove much too fast through the campground, including on golf carts. We observed several dogs off-leash and allowed to eliminate in empty sites without the owners cleaning up after them. The park has a 14 day rule, but several campsites looks like long-term residences. Trees really need to be trimmed, so if you have a taller RV select one of the sites close to the main road. There are signs of expansion in what was the primitive area so hopefully longer, more level, better angled sites are in the near future (this park is very tight for anything longer than a 40 ft. motorhome given the trees, 90 degree angle of site to road, and short pads). Not sure what the solution to the irresponsible campers would be. This has been ongoing for years (loose dogs, speeding, etc.) and is much less of an issue during the off-season and when there's not a show going on in the horse park. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Motorhome.
