We stayed in this lovely little campground for a week and had a peaceful, relaxing stay. The park managers were hard working, very helpful and accommodating. The sounds of the waterfall over the dam and geese calling to each other was more than we expected on this trip but coupled with the Kentucky hospitality of our hosts at the park, by far one of our greatest trips. This Michigan family is impressed! Try it! You will like it! - Georgeann

I-65 is only about 5 miles from the campground. This is a small, very nice campground with ten sites off a small parking lot. The sites have a small concrete pad which was sufficient size for our 36' fifth wheel, water and 30 amp electric. They back up to the Shelbyville Lake which appears to be a pretty nice fishing lake. - schoolmarm

What a gem! $15 for a campsite! Wow! The only way we found this campground was with RVParkReviews, and we're glad we did! It's very small, only 10 sites, but we called ahead and he said he'd save a site for us. We had to ask for the address (1433 Burks Branch Road), and Google Maps found it.
The park is lovely with a small fishing lake, lots of grass, a nice playground, and pedal boats for rent. The sites have concrete pads which are very short, but we managed to get all the wheels on it. We just parked our tow vehicle on the asphalt in front. As someone else mentioned, the manager's house is the office and it reeks of cigarette smoke, but he was helpful. The bathrooms are pretty rustic, but they are clean and there's plenty of hot water. There's no wifi, but I had a good enough Verizon signal, and I can buy a lot of data with the money we saved here! - mom2wildlife

Don't follow the GPS, it will try to take you through a subdivision. Follow the brown signs once you get into town; they take you straight to it. The interior road was narrow with speed bumps, so while big rigs could get in there, it wasn't the easiest to navigate. It was super muddy, and made for difficult entry/exit of the rv. There was a very 'nature' smell everywhere - okay, it smelled like dog poop. Our rig was too big to use the dump station; couldn't make the curve into the pullout. - DaBlairs

We were in site 12 and it was spacious and very close to a nice playground, great for our toddlers and our space was big enough to throw frisbee to our two medium size dogs. Nice neighbors. Only rating at 9 because when it rained and it got super muddy but I guess campground can't keep the rain away. - TravelingSnook

Want a quiet nights sleep? Look no further. Spacious Campsites. Water and elec. wish there was sewer hookup but thats ok $22 / night is a good price. Boating available.
clean showers/restrooms/good hot water and so glad they clean it well and don't disguise smells with artificial and toxic perfumed plug ins etc.
Kentucky people are some of the friendliest that you will find in the country! We would stay at this park again! - WVrvers

Stayed here two nights while visiting friends in the area. Very nice family park with lots to do. nice pull throughs and back in sites. We have a 40' class A DP with 4 slides, towing Ford Flex. Many choices for sites that we could fit in. - Gurleymon

This property is a State Resort Park because it has a lodge with hotel rooms, a restaurant, golf course, and cabin rentals. Kentucky classifies its resort parks by these amenities, not by how well appointed the campground is. Knowing this distinction in advance will keep you from being disappointed.
General Butler offers a campground that is quite serviceable. Nothing too fancy, just decent place to park. We were here during Thanksgiving and family members stayed in the lodge while we were at the campground. For this type of get-away General Butler was perfect, and we spent 3 comfortable nights here. - Flying Mantis

Not sure why all the good comments on this park????... First of all if they did not list it as a resort and did not list it as big rig friendly I would not have stopped here. For a State park it is ok but do not say it is a resort. First of all it is very tight to get around in. I had a very hard time getting my 36' 5th wheel turned around at the end of the full hook up loop. The sites are also very short and many are hard to get into with a larger RV. Now once you are in the water hook up is a long way off, so make sure you have lots of hose. I have a 75' and a 50' hose and used all of it. This is the case for a lot of the sites. Also they have a sign saying if there is a yellow tag on the post the site is reserved. Almost all the sites had yellow tags??? We were there Tuesday night ....the yellow tags were for the weekend??????? Now lets discuss the copperhead problem. Evidently it is severe enough they have a sign up advising you to not go out at night with out lights to the point they will loan you a flashlight if you don't have one????????? I'm not sure if this is the reason the shower houses were closed or not. - steelpony

This park is about 15 miles off of I-71. It is on a winding dangerous one lane country road with many sharp twists and turns. A truly nerve racking drive after several hours on the highway. When we arrived at 6 PM there was no one around. Some sites were closed down for the winter. We had to search for one with water. Store/reception run down. The nicest thing about this campground was the signs directing to the park. Once there it was down hill fast. I would never stay here again. - murph164

Nice little park right in town about 15 minutes from Kentucky Speedway. It appears this campground is brand new with generous paved sites, hook-ups in perfect condition, and a walking trail along the river. Very neat and clean. Small trees will need a few years before they provide any shade. Smooth paved roads throughout the park. Wifi was excellent since we were here in the off season, good Verizon reception, too. Couldn't reliably get any over-the-air TV stations. Large shopping area about 5 minutes away. - 4forsmores

We were very pleasantly surprised with Two Rivers Campground. This was an enroute overnight stay for us. The Campground was pristine with spacious pull-through, level concrete pads. Full hook-up. The grounds were very manicured. We were traveling over Labor Day and this Campground did not require 3 night stay for a holiday weekend. I didn't rate the service as we no interaction with any of the staff. We arrived after the office was closed and left before they opened. If we're ever back in this area we definitely would stay at 2 Rivers again. Great experience! - cool_mommie

This is a five year old city park located on the Kentucky River about 1/2 mile north of it's confluence with the Ohio River. It was an excellent choice of a place to stay. It was very well managed and very well kept. The bathhouse was very nice, as was a playground just to the west of it. We were backed up to the Kentucky River and saw several fishing boats heading up stream. Interior roads were all paved and quite wide compared to most campgrounds. - Teacher's Pet

This is a nice campground about 10 miles outside of Frankfort KY. Initial impressions were that the grounds were somewhat "aged" but after paying and heading to the site, the actual grounds are very nice. They are back quite a bit from the office and well maintained, quiet and pleasant. Our only issue was that the electric spiked high voltage every evening around 7:00. This caused our EMS to shut down the electric to our coach and start the inverter to protect our system. The length of time varied each day. We had good Verizon cell and air card coverage. The owners were very pleasant. We would return if in the area. - Gypsy Turtles

Rate reflects a weekly rate. This is a gem located north of Frankfort on the Kentucky River at the mouth of the Elkhorn Creek. Entry can be misleading as you cross a single-lane bridge on pavement and then transition to gravel. The area around the office and the storage area are a bit unkempt, but as you are escorted to your site you round the bend and see a beautiful, unspoiled meadow. All roads are gravel and single lane but courtesy makes traversing them no problem. We requested a site for our satellite and had no problem connecting. However, many sites are in the shade so be sure to request an open site if that is important to you. The full-hook-up sites have many seasonals but their campsites are neat. The hook-ups are conveniently located and easily accessed. The sites are gravel surrounded with grass. This is not a resort but if you like a state park atmosphere with full hook-ups, you'll enjoy Still Waters. There are also two primitive areas and water/electric only sites available for RVs and tents with a dump station on the grounds. There are no trains, no highway noises, no city lights. Frisbee golf,fishing, hiking, volleyball and a lots of wide open spaces for the kids to run are located on the grounds as well as canoe rentals available at the concession in the campground. Probably could be busy/zoo on a summer/holiday weekend or if there's a company picnic on the grounds, but during the week it is an oasis. Located about 10 miles north of Frankfort, Still Waters is close enough to access all the sightseeing available in the area. Would definitely return again. - Here4Now

Stayed here as an over night stop an a recent trip. Only had electric hookup. Dump station and water available. Deep, wet grass. Area needed mowing real bad. When I made my reservations I was quoted $30, but when I arrived I found that since it was race weekend, the rate was $75. They finally accepted the $30 rate I was quoted.
The camp sites are basically electric hook ups in a cow pasture. I had to use 4wheel drive on my truck when pulling out the next morning because my tires were spinning on the wet grass. - arkansasmel

This is basically a cow pasture turned into a campground. If you have a large RV it is not the place to stay. Also it is right across the street from the main railroad between Louisville and Cincinnati. Trains run all night and there is a crossing there so they blow the whistle 3 times. No sleep! There is only electric at each site so IMO it is overpriced. Sites are all tall grass, so pray it doesn't rain or you're stuck. Will not stay again, will boondock before staying there. - Ljbtn

Sparta Campground! Our 2nd time back! The owners are two of the loveliest people we have met in our lifetime! We stayed on Snob Knob (due to a little oversight on the owner's part). It was a quick switch to a different site & we had a wonderful couple nights with electric & water hook-ups! The train is loud and can wake you up, that is for sure (but it is dark & quiet down in that valley at night, otherwise). The property that the campground is situated on is an old tobacco farm & in MY opinion, it is simply gorgeous!! The hills that roll up around the campsites are covered with tall trees & it is the country AT its BEST!! We loved this short trip to Kentucky & our black lab had another fun time! Thanks again to the owners & their gracious southern hospitality! - patti&charlie

This park is located in a closer area to all the attractions that are available to see in town. We were able to have WiFi, which made it easy to help navigate town. We paid a $5 deposit for a restroom key, which I did not mind as it kept transients out, it was refundable. We were told that showers were nothing to write home about at the start. They were acceptable for showering. We have a class A and were told we could either pull in or back in depending if we wanted the view or not. Would return to this campground as the view is worth the price. - gypsy561

1. Horrible Bathroom/Shower (that you have to leave a 5.00 deposit to get a key). The conditions of the facilities is not acceptable. I wouldn't take a shower here even if I hadn't bathed in weeks. Water dripped on my head, from the ceiling skylight, as I used the toilet. Just BAD! 2. Standing water and mud everywhere... our campsite flooded with a small shower. 3. THE CRAZY bright street lights over every site... blaring all night long!!! Really, this is not camping! 4. The spaces are so tight that you can reach out a touch the campers next to you... our neighbors started slamming car doors at 6:15am on Sunday morning. Once I was awakened, I started counting... 40+ door slams before these idiots pulled away and left. Simply unexplainably rude!!! I know this is not the campgrounds fault... but, this shows you what kind of visitors you'll find here. Pro: The camp host was nice and tried to help us with a good attitude. - Clayton Turner

While there are sites on the north side of the one campground road, the sites on the river side are by far the most popular. The Ohio River is right outside your rear window (or if you pull a motor home in nose first, it's right outside your front window). The campsites, themselves, are way too close together putting your neighbors on either side just a few steps away. If there's any redeeming point about the spacing it's that each site is at a pretty hard angle making your "front" yard also your neighbor's "back" yard. If everyone just uses their front yard there's enough room for you to use the picnic table and set out some lawn chairs to watch the river. However, if your neighbor in a motorhome happens to want to pull in nose first that scheme is messed up and you end up with the front door of their RV matching up with the front door of yours - creating a shared front yard. On the other hand, the utility hookups actually support this approach because the water/electric hookups are on every other site. If you get an even numbered site they are on the normal, driver's side of the rig (when backing in). Otherwise, you either pull in nose first or you have to pass the hose/electric under the camper. There are no sewer hookups in the campground, but there is a dump station. The campground has for-pay WiFi. We didn't use it as our Verizon signal was a strong 4G. Also satellite TV was easy to get - after all you are basically aiming it out over the river and there are no trees in play. The bathrooms are old and worn but reasonably clean and in working condition. Because of the public nature of the campground (right along a city street) you pay a $5 deposit to get a bathroom key. The number of sites is limited so, if you are coming during the busy time of the year I strongly suggest you call ahead for reservations - especially if you want a riverside spot. - nazpaz
