13 Parks near London, Kentucky
Oct 2016 - $40.00
We've stayed in several KY state parks and find all to be satisfactory,
none outstanding. $40 bought us a site that is steeply (4 blocks) canted
right to left and down in the back. No dump at site.
No cable, no OTA. Tengo capped at 70kB for $4 a day (yes, Kilobytes).
Nice and quiet, mostly folks from the surrounding area use this.
Has a pool for more money, putt-putt golf for more money...
There is a train in the distance, and no road noise. ATVs roam day and night.
So, nice quiet setting with unlevel sites and charges for everything except
the push button showers and toilets after you pay $40 a day. - 1yrfulltime

We have found the State Parks in Kentucky to be some of the best. This park had a lot of activities available - especially for a family. It was accessible from the highway and close to points of interest. The bathrooms and showers could have been a little bit cleaner but were ok. We would stay here again. - Stan from idaho

This is a nice state park with plenty to do. There is a Mountain Life museum, Wilderness Road and hiking trails. It is 45 minutes away from Cumberland Falls. The sites are mostly open and fairly large. We have a good ATT signal, not too many OTA channels but open enough for satellite. - cascan

As others have said, it really isn't designed for a big rig. Pretty much all back in unless you have a small rig and are one of the first for the pull through sites as the sites make up part of the road. Easiest entry is actually at the light before the hotel and then take the access road. Pull in before the gas station. Else pull in and park as close to the road or at the gas station. It is tight. Restrooms were adequate and clean, but someone thought it was still summer as all the windows were open and no heat on (October 46 degrees in the AM). WiFi is good. Basic cable included. Very, very noisy in the morning with restaurants supply trucks and trash trucks to compliment the road noise. . Really old picnic tables. - TBBGII

For a longer term stay we were assigned a back in site which was high in rear, low in front. When level the rear was almost on the ground. The sewer connection was on a mound and the pipe was a good 6 inches above the ground. I went to the the office and was given a different site. While it was still high in the rear and low in the front, it was better than the first. The sewer, water and electric were at the rear of the site and the sewer was still an elevated pipe.
This wouldn't be our first choice in the area but we were there during the 4th of July and the had space available so grateful to have a place to stay. When parking we were given instructions to drive in front of the closed service station to enter the park. This eliminated the sharp turn mentioned by a previous reviewer. There is truck parking behind the motel and that is a good staging area to park while checking in for a site. - LivinTheDream

This is a small campground located beside the Budget Host Motel. You check into the campground in the front lobby of the motel. The campground is not fancy, but offers full service 50 amp sites and a clean bathhouse facility. As an overnight stopping point it offers easy access to I-75 and there is a small truck stop right across the street that you can refuel at. The campground has four "pull through" sites but due to tight turns into the sites I couldn't get into them with a 40 ft fifth wheel. Fortunately the campground is fairly open in the center and the pull through sites are easy to back into. This is not a campground that I would want to spend a weekend at, but as an easily accessible overnight campground it was a good value for the money. - Greg and Kim

This was our first visit to Holly Bay Campground, and boy were we pleased with this campground! The campground is very spacious and heavily forested throughout - to the point of barely seeing the campsite next to you. Laurel Lake borders nearly three sides of the campground, but with the woods all around, it is hard to see the water from the campsites. The good thing is that there is a gorgeous, shaded hiking trail that goes down and around part of the lake.
This has become our favorite campground to visit as it is the most scenic, clean, and quiet we have been to. - Mcoffman

This campground when I called, I asked and was told, their wifi works well. I also asked about if we could get out with our Dish. They said no problem. Never had anybody complain. WELL I AM. Their wifi sucks, can not get on even parked in front of office. Could not get out with Dish...TOO many trees. I think its really sad how we were misled. We were booked for 2 days, asked for our 2nd night refund. After some back and forth bickering, we were finally reimbursed. NEVER again would I book here. - Barbjac425

This is a very confusing park. The road in/out is very narrow. The sites have been squeezed into a small piece of property. Some lots cannot be used since they added the "large upscale pull thru lots". We were in lot 14, which is shared with another coach. Our lot had a large tree that hindered us from opening our back driver side slide. We were told this wouldn't be a problem and we wouldn't have to unhook our car. When we started to leave we had to pull straight to avoid hitting the tree with the back of the coach. Then we couldn't get by a half dead bush. I tried breaking the dead branches off, but that didn't work. So, we had to unhook the car, which was on an angle, back up and start over. Luckily everyone else had left so we had room. I would suggest you never stay on lot 14 in a big rig. Get a lot without a patio that has a straight shot out of the campground. - Merker

We spent one night while going south. Our gravel site was spacious, mostly shady, and included a fire ring and patio. A lot of trees. Staff was very nice. Would stay again. - deangrimmett

We stayed here for a couple of nights as we were passing through the area. Very nice campground with a mix of sites and rates (FHU, WE only, double sites). We had water and electric in a nice back in site (A19). Loops B and C were closed since they were winding down for the season. Verizon was fair, but only 4 OTA tv channels none of which were interesting. Nice private site with fire ring/grill and picnic table. We walked through Loop B even though it was closed and site B4 was very nice with plenty of room. Sites were paved with asphalt and general area was well kept. We would stay here again. - jtl2

We came in on a Sunday afternoon. No attendant at station, but a note to check in with host. We stopped by host campsite, but no luck. Our campsite was easy to find and to back in to. Plenty of space for the camper and vehicle to park at in our campsite. Host showed up short while later with our check-in paperwork and was expecting us. She was a very friendly and helpful host to us.
Sites were decently apart from one another and plenty of space in each area. The restrooms were older, but clean and well maintained. Sites were level with concrete or gravel and the water/electrical were within easy reach. There is 1 dump station.
Campground was quiet and plenty of woods around us. Plenty of trails around the campground to explore and wildlife was active here. Overall, I will stay here again. My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. - kycamper02

Wonderful USFS campground. Nice, roomy sites with 30 amp power. Lantern poles near tables and tent pads. Camped here while visiting Cumberland Gap area, though discovered other campgrounds closer. Hosts were positive and helpful. - Al Z

Park under new ownership as of 2-1/2 months ago. Very nice owners. Gravel sites, but easy to navigate. Clean. Pretty overall area, with many trees. Owners have many plans for future. - Georgiajan

Sites were very tight. We asked for a pull-thru. There was a raised concrete patio that our vehicle almost hit while pulling into the site. A worker was guiding us. We had to unhook our vehicle from the MH to set up. When we left we had to back out of site to exit due to the closeness of neighboring sites in front of our site. The sites were gravel and very un-level. Stayed only one night.
I have been a KOA member for over 10 years. This is one of the worst KOA's we have stayed in so far. - pasco1215

Nice size for big rigs. Close to the Cumberland Falls. White water rafting trip is very easy for all ages, it's no where near the rides I've taken on other rivers. Very nice area just to drive around and hike the many trails in the park. We also did the horseback tour next door through the woods and had some great views and photo ops.
Only pull through sites have full hookup, but there is a dump station by the office for the rest of the sites the are water and electric only. Same owner here since 1985. - Oceanblue

The RV sites are very basic. This is a hikers or white water rafting paradise. They have recently added RV facilities and these will get better. They offer shuttle service to the various hiking locations. It is the best place to stop if you have a big rig and want to visit Cumberland Falls State park as the park is not "Big" rig friendly. Shade is limited and sites are gravel. - A hitch and hop

Campsites are not level and are grass and dirt. The setting is very nice - the lake was pretty low when we were there. The staff is very nice. There is a playground for kids. This would be a nice destination park for kids and families visiting Cumberland Falls State Park. - Bearpup

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

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 fitted 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

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
