Beautiful park in the woods. Big swimming lake with nice beach, concession area. We had a site by the lake; it was great. Roads were a little narrow but not bad. Owners are great. - V F Coffman

Extremely dusty roads. Very private. Country setting with nice fishing and walking areas. 50 amp service is way out back on a different ridge and a long walk. - JimOhio

Park is located about 10 miles out of town. Grass sites. Some level, some far from level. Huge sites. Lots of room, very spread out. Definitely a vacation stay type of park. - Ex Sub-Driver

Stayed one night while visiting friends in the area. All sites are back-in but large and long. Full hookup and the utilities worked well. It is important to position your rig carefully to be able to reach your connections, which may still require extensions. Great recreational facilities. Store and snack bar, even this time of year. The two lane road to access is narrow and no shoulder but fine if you just take it slow. We had a site on the lake so the satellite worked fine but would not work from many sites due to trees. Our Verizon voice connection was marginal; data was ok for email and web browsing. Wifi cost $4 per day per device so we didn't try it. We found interior roads to be adequate. - Pktva

I am not sure it should be called a lake. There is no swimming and there are just several small bodies of water around. Diamond ponds would be more accurate. The main reason I chose to stay here over my usual campground was for the Luau party. I was very disappointed. There wasn't a big to do or decorations or anything extraordinary.
My most pleasant surprise was the prices. Rates were great, prices of activities was great and I was happy to see that they were economical enough for families unlike some parks that have high prices because they know your kids will beg to do them and you'll pay. So kudos to Diamond lake for good prices.
The park was extremely crowded and there is very little privacy but it is very clean.
There was some minor things that should be done like painting picnic tables, steps to cottages that also were badly in need of pressure washing but overall the park was very tidy.
There is an unfinished putt putt golf course that is on the map but it doesn't look ready to play. The go karts were fun and priced well.
I didn't care much for the attitude of the security guard but all the other staff were very nice.
I don't know if we will stay here again because of the lack of privacy but it's a nice camp ground. - Blended family campers

If you need to be in the Owensboro, this is the only game in town. There is one other RV park, but you don't want to stay there. Lots of activity going on here and plenty to keep you busy. Downside: long drive from town on rural roads with no shoulder and aging infrastructure at the park. No sign of capital improvements...pads are broken and electrical equipment is showing age. Management is friendly, flexible and responsive. Most of the sites are permanently occupied as weekend get always. Some full timers. Ask the park for directions, my GPS always gives incorrect data to this location. Be careful driving in, narrow, twisting rural roads with no shoulders and blind hills. All in all a good place if you need to be in the Owensboro area. - tom&kathryn

Nice campground with a big fishing and swimming lake, playgrounds, shelter houses, four rental cottages and an enclosed pavilion available to rent.
The only negative about this park is that the sites are gravel and there's very little of it. The area around the campers are very loose dirt that tracks into the camper. It would have been much worse had it been rainy and turned to mud. - kc9mls

A small, wooded, public park. My site was in the open. Some longer term guests were evident. Staff at the front desk were friendly. Flat gravel sites, I had to back into site #26 but thank heavens the site in front was open so I went in and back in straight. Good AT&T and Verizon signal, no wifi. - RVStudent

Gorgeous place to spend summer days and nights. We stayed for a week at a time during our travels, and both times our campsite hadn't been cleaned. The last time there were hot coals in the pit, so starting a campfire was easy, at least. Special note, the mowers sprayed our coach on the way past. We pointed out the new chips, and all the guy could do was shrug his shoulders and apologize. This carelessness really upset us. - BeagleMama

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
