5 Parks near Morganfield, Kentucky
Sep 2012 - $18.00
This is a county park about 10 miles from town with good roads all the way, a popular fishing spot. There's an on-site manager, many seasonals, but most sites are well kept. They have a 1.5 mile walking trail, which we did not try. There are also a few cabins. Dump stations and bath houses are convenient and the campground was quiet when we were there. We were able to get a Verizon signal, but could not get a Dish signal on our site due to tall pine trees, but others had dishes set up that evidently worked. The sites are grass and gravel. This campground is not fancy, but very adequate and pleasant if you are visiting the area, the only one we could find. - User1392

This is a beautiful, but fairly remote, campground. We were traveling with friends and chose the first two sites after the camp host (which was empty), up on the hill. It was starting to rain, so we thought it might be a dryer location. The sites have 30 amp and water and we had trouble with the electric at our site, shortly after setting up. The ranger tried some things and we finally talked him into replacing the breaker, which seemed to solve the problem, but we didn't push it. We were offered the host site, which has sewer as well, but we were already setup and it was cold and rainy, so we stayed and were careful what we had turned on. The cave is interesting and worth a visit, the restaurant on site was really good, I recommend it. The ferry across the river is fascinating to watch and we took it to Kentucky and drove to the Amish area on that side. There wasn't a lot to do in the park, but it really is pretty. One warning, if it rains the mud is super slippery. The pads are asphalt, but fairly narrow, so our steps went onto the grass/mud and we had to be cautious getting to the steps. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. - Uno Mas

Nice clean park. Well maintained and everything mowed. Lots of shade trees. Lodge within walking distance from campground for meals. Lodge has breakfast buffet on weekends. View of river is beautiful from the lodge and scenic drive. River is not visible from campground. Campground was quiet with paved roads and paved camping spots. - Roadtrek Illinois

This is a very nice and quiet park. We stayed here after the rains and wanted to see the cave. However, the Ohio river was in a flood stage and the path to the cave was covered with water. Should have called ahead. The camp sites are paved with a second paved space for parking a second vehicle. Be sure to bring leveling blocks as the pads are not level Sites only have electric. You will need to fill your water tanks and dump when leaving. There is a ferry ride from the KY. on the south side of the river to IL. Well worth making a detour off I-24 to see and spend a couple of days. - A hitch and a hop

I was very disappointed in this campground. We arrived to find that the waterfall was broken. The arcade games were not operational. We decided immediately to stay only one night. The manager seemed to be watching, and complaining about everything we did. Everything from having our 4 pound dog with us to having our golf cart there. He also rudely informed us that the campground was mainly used for construction workers who camp there by the week or month. In my opinion, they should state that on their website, instead of listing it as a peaceful, family campground. There was also a ditch full of stagnate water right behind our campsite. We will not return! - KellyF

We make frequent trips to Evansville to visit family and on this last trip we discovered Burdette Park. We were very pleasantly surprised. The pros? 1) Very close to everything you could possibly need but far enough away to be in the country, 2) Roads are paved nicely, 3) 20,30 & 50 amp service at each spot, 4) paved sites, 5) very quiet, 6) plenty of room between sites, 7) the manager is the absolute best, 8) Water park, BMX park, trails, fun park on premises, 9) Bath house is very nice, 10) wooded, 11) very private. Cons? 1) landscaping could be better, 2) roads around campers sites very narrow.
Picnic tables are very old and brittle. Landscaping was sort of ragged but grass was cut. No problems with electric at all. Some sites have sewer but there's a very nice dump station at the entrance.
There is a great pizza place within a mile that delivers and the water park is huge and beautiful...very inviting. We really loved our stay here. Very few mosquitoes so that was a definite plus. Also, camping park is small so getting a site could prove difficult in the summer. We will be staying here quite often...it's our new home away from home. - John_Merrell 1986

Have to go to Evansville for work periodically, and decided to bring trailer. Burdette Park was one of very few campgrounds close enough to my work. I had problems getting to park--roads are tight. Once there, no one was at campground entrance to check in with--I'd called and made reservations. Was told to find someone in Site 17. Once I did, she said to park in any of the sites in the first two rows--all were just water and electric. The full hookup sites are taken up with what seems like more seasonal or monthly campers. It's a bit tight going past them, as a lot of them have large trucks parked near the road.
All sites are pull-through. Had 50 amp for my site. Water up a slight hill to share with site above me. Some tent campers in primitive sites. Lots of large fifth wheels and several big motorhomes there as well.
Pretty quiet at night. Lots of crickets and frogs. Can hear trains through the night, as there are tracks nearby. Some noise in morning as people get up and go to work. I spent 4 nights there. Never used shower house, so no idea what it's like. Dump station on exit seems very tight, so didn't try it.
One odd thing, was that I'd never paid. So, morning of my departure, I had to hunt down the woman in Site 17. She said to use a credit card I'd have to go to main building of park--but I was already hooked up and had pulled out of site. I ended up giving her some cash--what I had, and certainly not enough for entire stay. She was very nonchalant about the whole transaction. - drdit92

Just travelling through, but did we enjoy our one night's stay here!
Large, level places on a forested terrace camping, nice & easy hikes, good facilities and friendly staff make this a great campsite. - Eisenga

Audubon State Park has a lot to offer: camping, cabins, lake, golf course, and the museum. The campground, however, shows wear. It's a small campground, crammed next to a busy highway at the park's entrance. Many sites were deeply shaded and had paved pads, but the pads weren't very wide and some are quite short. Companion vehicle parking is available with some sites on a separate paved pad. Not sure that detail is noted on the reservation form, so it might be best to call. One bath house present and a small, one-hole dump station. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon, departed late Monday morning and never saw a host to check us in. There might have been camp wifi, but we didn't have the code. We paid for our night via the after hours drop box.
Parking at the museum is limited, but it's a short walk from the campground. Interior roads are quite narrow, so it'd be best to drive a tow around the park. We used this campground as an overnight stop because we had a favorable impression when we stayed at the cabins 10 years ago. Now I'm not so sure I'd return again with an RV due to the cramped and noisy conditions and overall wear of the property. - Flying Mantis

Audubon State Park is a little funky in its location: the park is located on US 41 in Henderson, but when you pull in, you go from city to wilderness in about 100 yards. The gal at the check-in gate allowed us to check in early. Sites are crowded together pretty close. Our site, number 5, had electricity and water, but the spigot and electric box were located about 40 feet from the camper. Shower houses were dated and in need of a little cleanup. Could've been because it was Sunday morning, but showers were a bit dirty. I think this state park would be one that would appeal to those who want the "away from it all" experience, yet want city amenities like restaurants and night life. Ellis Park is located 3 miles north of the state park for Horse racing fans. - Prairie Bayou

Very nice city park. Good trees, good sites, if a little confusing, good grass and a good location. - Oldtymeflyr
