This is not a campground. It at best is an unattended parking lot. The location is in a very shady part of town. You have to pull a large RV through the hood to get to this place. The place is unattended and messages left on their phone were not returned. IMHO, this place should not be listed as a campground. We left because we did not feel safe in this area of town. Maybe it is different on weekends when the flea market is operating but then all you migh have is electricity. I did not see any other facilities. We camped at Derby Park RV Parking & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A most unusual experience. I knew from researching Louisville, that there weren't a lot of top notch locations in which to stay. We picked this Derby Park, site of a large flea market on the weekends, and we made the mistake of arriving during the flea market. The supervisor came in his car and guided us into a large grass and dirt parking lot with electrical boxes on the fences. It is used mainly as a camping spot for RVs during the Kentucky Derby. We plugged in along the fence but then noticed that this was also the parking area for the Haunted House attraction that night. The manager, who really went out of his way to help us in every area, and is to be commended, suggested that we move our rig down to the other side after the flea market closed and we would be away from the Haunted House. We did that, but were surprised in the morning to have our RV surrounded by cars, and a farmer selling chickens and live roosters to a multitude of people. This park is located in a very seedy area, but amazingly we experienced no problems. As nice as the manager was, we will never be back. There were no other RVs that even tried to stay here. Electric only. I heard there was a dump station but with so many cars there, we left. We camped at Derby Park RV Parking & Campground in a Motorhome.

Derby Park is a HUGE flea market with a lot of space for the KENTUCKY DERBY visitors that are parking RV's or Tent camping for DERBY WEEK. We had a great time in 2010 the park has a Flea Market and Entertainment Venue that has 2 bars inside and local and national bands play throughout the year. We camped at Derby Park RV Parking & Campground in a Motorhome.
