We stayed at this campground, when the Kentucky Horse Park was having an event (Bryerfest). Overall, a really nice stay. The sites can be tough to get into, as most are at a right angle (not sure who designed this)... but it's doable. Interior roads were easy to navigate (we have a 40' fifth wheel). Some of the sites are not level (bring blocks!!); our site (B115) was good. The campground has a nice pool and two nice playgrounds. There is also a basketball court and a tennis court, plus a game room. Kentucky is pretty and this park is no exception. We found two downsides to this property: no sewer and people WILL walk through your site. From what we could tell, there are no interior pathways so if you're in one of the outside loops, you either walk through sites or you have to walk around and get out on the main road for the campground (which is not busy). We had people walk through our site several times and watched others (including kids on bikes) go through other sites. Now, a majority of the people were either there for Bryerfest or participating in one of the other shows they had going on that weekend, so maybe that was the difference? The Kentucky Horse Park itself, is beautiful. When at full capacity, the horse park has over 2,000 stalls. That's a lot of horses! Campground was quiet at night. No cable, but we pulled up 10-15 clear channels on our antenna. At&t service was good. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very large campsite with plenty of spacing between sites and lots of trees. The paved strip for parking was just wide and long enough for our RV and almost level. However, there was no stone or paving in the patio / table area and the grass was worn away, so it was just dirt. Unfortunately, it rained heavily all the time we were there, so the dirt turned to mud, which meant we stepped out of our RV into a large mud hole. We used our ground cover, but that soon became saturated with mud. At our request, they provided straw that covered the mud and that helped greatly. Over the air TV reception was very good. There was no Wi-Fi signal at our site, and it was fair at the office, but we had to sit outside to use it. Campground was very quiet and a lovely setting with well maintained trees and grass. They provided transportation to the Horse Park, but we soon discovered that it was a nice walk from the campground. The fire ring was mostly rusted away but looked to be still useable. We plan to go back to this campground in the future and hope for better weather. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Kentucky Horse Park is a must-see. Buy tickets at the campground office, as they provide a discount and will take you there and bring you back. The restaurant at the Horse Park was fairly reasonable and the food was good. If you are a biker, there is a bike trail just outside the park that runs from Lexington to Georgetown.

The spaces are very generous and the grounds are treed. Very clean, nice family environment. Pool, basketball, volleyball Pool closes at 7. Internet is spotty even close to source. Online reservation system doesn't work, and when you call to reserve a spot on the same day it can't be done. They offer a free shuttle to the horse park but they really aren't prepared to handle that request. No sewer. No pull through offered. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Don't bother with the shuttle service to the horse park. We waited about 30 minutes for them to show up after they dropped us off there. We used the truck the next time. They just aren't ready to provide this service on demand.

We could not get level front to back in Site B108 in our 45' Bus. There was a parking curb in the back of the site that restricted how far back we could park (even after removing the tow bar). The trees also needed to be cut back. Fortunately, we were able to move to A62. No parking curb and no trees. Pad was still quite sloped for our length, but we were able to hang over the end of the pad enough allowing us to get level. Front, right tire was off the ground 1-2". Also, be cautious of the water pressure. It was 100 PSI at our site. No cable and no sewer. Don't know if we will go back or not. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Motorhome.

I feel this campground could use some TLC! Pads are too narrow for today's RVs. Laundry facilities are not great, not maintained! Location is a plus. Easy to visit tourist attractions. Did not see many drive thru sites! Felt Park itself needed to be spruced up! We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is very wide open and lots of green grass. The sites are not level but there is lots of space between sites. Quiet and a country feel. We asked for a site with fewer trees so we could easily connect to our satellite. There was no useable WiFi at our site. It is tight to get our 45 foot RV on the site and our car as well.

We were just there for an overnight stop. Called ahead for same day arrival and the staff was very helpful. Explained we'd be a late arrival. They said to pick a spot not reserved/held and stop by in the morning. We did and admired their camp store. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Motorhome.

We rate this park as okay. Narrow paved pads just wide enough for the MH. Tight backing in with vehicles parked along the road. Our first site was 13" low in the front. Changed to another site that was 6" low in the rear. Pressure reducer needed for water. Elec. 50 amp was good. No sewer. Not a bad campground just tighter then we like and will look elsewhere in the future. Staff was helpful and friendly. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is a good location for all the attractions around Lexington. The only major weakness of this park is the lack of sewer but with care on water usage, we stayed 6 nights. Good OTA tv as no cable. The cell service at our site was poor. Sprint had one LTE. Other sites might be different. Wifi was poor. We also found the angle of the spaces to be hard to back into as they are not at the correct angle. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Lexington in October is great. There are discounted tickets ($16 instead of $20) to the Kentucky Horse Park and free parking for people that stay in the campground. We went to Keeneland for a horse race which was great and classy. We took the Unique Farm Horse tour which besides showing a horse farm with expensive thoroughbreds, visited a tobacco farm, and the Fasig-Tipton horse auction. Also the Toyota Factory Tour was amazing. (make reservations early for this free tour).

Wide sites but close together. Need reservations probably unless primitive camping. Very easy on off I75. The Horse park has lots of activities so that is why always crowded. We were there during Horse show, Keeneland race track live and UK college football. Nice playground for kids and game room. Lots of horse trailers but horses stay in stalls at Horse park. Friendly family campers. Our site needed few leveling blocks. Tight back in fornour neighbor who had a long trailer. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed one week. Almost full on weekend and less than half full during the week. Wifi actually worked pretty well during the week but not so much so on the weekend. Our site was level but a lot of them have quite a bit of slope. Asphalt streets and pads but no patio area. Plenty of grass which was great for dog walking. Lots of OTA TV channels and our satellite worked fine but many sites would have trees in the way. Strong Verizon signal. People walked through our campsite constantly to get from the bath house to the outer loop and primitive sites, which drove our dogs nuts. We would choose another site if we returned because of that but make sure it's level. Water pressure is high-use a regulator. Nice campground and friendly staff.

We enjoyed a couple hours touring at the Horse Park. Also, many distilleries on the Bourbon Trail and breweries on the Brewgrass Trail. Get the free Passport books and have them stamped. Alltech Brewing and Distilling (Town Branch) was our favorite for both the tour and their products. Wish I had realized before our last day that there is a Toyota plant with tours just north of here.

You can't beat the ambiance of being right next to one of the most unique destinations in America, the Kentucky Horse Park. Like many state owned RV parks, this park had no sewer and that only became an issue when it was very crowded on the weekend. Everyone uses the public bathroom and you have to take a ticket to use a stall. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is nice, the roads are paved and the sites are pretty widely spaced. Our site was very level, did not need any blocks at all. The grass is a little thin on the shady sites and some had straw to cover the dirt/mud. We did not use the fire ring but it was very unlevel so cooking may have been difficult. Okay for a campfire though. We did not use the bathhouse but I checked it out: clean and huge, with a separate private little space for dressing outside the shower stall. There are 4 dump stations and leaving on a Sunday morning we had to wait only about two minutes. Even the dump station area was clean.

It was very quiet during the week and naturally a bit more noisy on the weekend (which is $2/nite more) but everyone was respectful of the 11:00 quiet time rule. We were with a group and had the pavilion for the whole time, so you might want to avoid the sites that border the pavilion: you will have people cutting through and a crowd right outside. We were all together so it was okay for us. They could have used a few more trash cans around, we had to walk to the bathhouse to dispose of our dog poop. But there was no litter around, the whole park was very clean. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.
