5 RV 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

I was last here in 1998 and the bathhouse was not completed at the time. The park ranger was very friendly and helpful when needed. Water was available at different areas but within walking distance of any camping area. - rockdoctor

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

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

A "plain brown wrapper" cg. Nice rate. Very peaceful. Putting in new sites and slabs with brand new wiring for 50 amp hookups. Paved roads, slab sites. $84.00 weekly. Close to some major shopping. - jdelauter

This park has a huge aquatic center which consists of an olympic sized pool and another huge pool, along with splash pools and slides. Kids would love it. There's a BMX track, basketball court. It rained the two days we were here so I did not experience the park as I would have liked. I did walk the dogs on the road through the park from the CG to the pool side. It is hilly. The CG sites are terraced, pull through. We had full hook-ups. There appear to be several campers who have been here for quite awhile. We just drove in as no one was attending the check-in shed. The CG host saw us and suggested a site. It was a very quiet stay. We did not have to use the levelers. Internet was unreliable, but, I did get it for a few hours. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse

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

I stayed here two nights in Site 10 while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with a tow car. Don't get site 10! Or 1-12 for that matter. Best sites are in the 20s, 30s and 40s which are in the back of the park past the bath house. The campground is right off the road. It is buffered by a stand of trees but there is still lot of noise off US 41. However it is also very convenient for the same reason. This is a large CCC park with many day use activity areas and a first class museum on Audubon which is contained in a French chateau built by the WPA in the 1930s. The campground is definitely dated. It has narrow roads and narrow pads which are almost randomly placed. But the sites are paved, and there is a lot of nice grass and big shade trees and you don't at all feel like you are in the middle of a city. I was there in the middle of the week and there were many open spaces so it felt very spacious. With all the sites filled it would be very crowded. Make sure you have a long water hose. Spigots are close to random and often very far away and on the wrong side of the site. Mine was next to my neighbor's fire ring. Some sites are seriously not level. Some sites have adjoining car parking but some don't. There are many walking trails in the park but only one for dogs which is described as "fairly difficult." It was that and more. Wifi is a subscription service and costs $3.99 a day. Verizon service was excellent. There are separate tent sites. Didn't use bath house. Didn't use dump station -- sign said $5 to dump. Rate reflects Kentucky 10% senior discount. Doesn't include the $7.50 it costs to reserve the site. If you are coming during the week I suggest saving the reservation fee and just drop in and pick out a site. You are more likely to get something you like. - SoloRed

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
