15 Parks near Paducah, Kentucky

We stayed two nights at Victory due to a windshield "incident" in Nashville that required a replacement. The lady manager was so accommodating, since we called her several times while dealing with the incident on-route. She had our info waiting in the box outside the office, as it was a Sunday and we finally made it in after hours.
The site was really easy to get into for us newbies, which we really appreciated. One word of caution: DON'T turn down the small road near the trees your GPS might tell you to use. Look up and ahead and you can see the RV park from there. It's out in the open, no trees there! (Ask us how we know...)
You should know that there's a racetrack just beyond the RV park, and it can be very noisy on race nights. Sunday was not a normal race day, but they had been rained out earlier in the weekend. The noise ended before 10 pm, and after that it was very quiet and peaceful. Roads leading into the park are fine, but there's no shoulder on the state road, so just be aware of that if you're in a big rig. We got our 45' 5th wheel and HDT in here just fine, and we didn't have to unhook. - Denise and Glenn

Conveniently off the highway. Great directional signage, no problem locating. Excellent water pressure in showers, got hot fast. Owners were very friendly. Long pull through sites so we could stay hooked up. Very quiet. - Wifey

We cannot recommend this park, but do read other evaluations. The drag strip and dirt track racing unexpectedly started up on a Thursday evening at 6pm and lasted well into the night. Very loud! The "grassy" areas are mowed "swamp grass". Obviously this area is subject to flooding as all the electrical is well elevated (4'+ off ground). It did rain during our visit, and water was standing everywhere for two days afterward. The park is approximately 5 miles from I-24 on narrow asphalt roads, one of which crosses a steep railroad embankment (similar to a levee). I was concerned I might damage my hitch and/or pin box driving across it. There are two tight turns that require no oncoming traffic to utilize the whole of both roads to negotiate. There is only one women's and one men's toilet/shower rooms for the whole park. One better hope that it is not busy as one walks across the gravel lot. There are two washers and three dryers; however, the dryers have only one heat setting - "high". One might choose "Delicate" or "Low" heat, no matter because the dryer (50 minutes for $1.75) gets hot enough that one cannot touch the inside drum. This park is under new owners, but beware the husband. He is very OCD about late checkouts and driving through unoccupied spaces! He will literally run across the park to confront someone with anger. Though not the park's fault, the electrical line voltage ran over 131 VAC for several hours several times a day. Our SurgeGuard ATS safely disconnected the RV, but then we were basically boondocking. One needs to be careful leaving the RV door open as the gnats will invade the RV. One reviewer stated the owners space RVs out for privacy; however, this is totally untrue. There are three RVs on the south loop, and we are all parked next to each other with empty spaces down the way. On the positive side, this appears to be a clean park. Even the permanent residents and rental RVs are not that junky. We will not return. - geo-gypsy

This park is conveniently located to Paducah attractions. Roads and sites are gravel. Our site was level and full hook-up, 50 amp with sewer and was plenty long enough for any size rig. The WiFi was okay most of the time. They offer cable, but we didn't use it. All sites are open for satellite connection. There is a pool which looks okay, but was closed at this time of year. Many sites seem to be occupied by long term residents. It is an okay place to visit the area, but is need of some TLC and upkeep. - krb

We stayed 2 nights at DC in a parking lot style slip with utilities. There appears to be long term residents toward the rear of the park and the traffic is heavy leaving and returning during work hours. The slips are too close causing problems with slides opening. The restrooms are clean; however, only one shower in the main restroom. We will past DC on our return trip through Paducah! - FT Newbie

This was our second stay at Duck Creek and this time the park was nearly full. Paducah was hosting a bar-b-q festival on the riverfront in a few days and the park was filling up ahead of that. Exterior signage was good, interior roads were fine and the store/office is easily accessed. Mostly pull-thrus but some back-ins, some spaces with shade , others out in the open. Sites are a bit close but there was adequate room for our triple slide MH. We were in FHU site 4 (pull thru). Our pedestal had both a 30/50 amp connection (didn't look for a 20-amp connection) and good water pressure. We also had a cable hookup which we did use as we couldn't get a clear enough shot of the sky for our satellite (DISH). About 20-cable channels, usual mix, and OTA signals are good for southern Illinois and Paducah. I think we had all 4-networks between cable and OTA. Didn't use the restrooms or showers so no intel on them but if they're like the rest of the park they should be fine. There is a nice, enclosed dog run towards the back of the park. And you'll get your very own little plastic duck on check-in! Some road noise from the adjacent road but it was very minimal overnight. Traffic picked up for the morning rush. We will absolutely stay here again. - rk911

Great place for an overnight. Close to I-24 but no road noise. Pull-thrus up front are close together and the back row is solid gravel (no grass between sites) but quite adequate for a short stay. Some sites in the back area near the pond are very close together. Very nice owner. Would stay again. - all4pets

We were in the pullthrough section at the front of the park and found it to be an easy in and out. Sites are pretty close but for overnighters that is fine. I found the owners to be so nice and helpful - really restored my faith in humanity. I was getting used to being invisible so to get suggestions of what to see and directions was so nice. We had a great wifi connection and OTA reception. Sites are gravel so a bit dusty but I am tired of mud haha! Had a great nights sleep - road noise was negligible. Very convenient location to head to restaurants and grocery stores. If you don't want to drive there is a Waffle Hut right across the street. - Djinfl

This is a small campground near the Interstate but not much traffic noise. There is a busy road in front of park but as this was an overnight stop for us it wasn't a problem. The overnight sites are gravel and fairly level. The staff is friendly. The overnight section sites are mostly very close together but all are pull through. The interior roads were easy to navigate but there was only one way into the pull through section big enough for our rig. If your neighbor is parked very far back, there isn't room to drive through to your site. WiFi is very good but it was difficult to lock onto satellite. We would stop again. - Astilbe46

Very enjoyable stay. Came for the Superman Celebration in Metropolis. Be aware that if you have a 50 amp unit, you need to request a 50 amp site. There were 2-30 amp sites that had been tampered with. Don't screw it up for someone else. Can create an electrical hazard. Campground host is very nice. Water not available at sites. Fill up before parking your rig, unless you have a long hose. Restrooms/showers have been updated in the last few years. Sites are fairly level. We'll definitely return when in the area. - electrician538

Only stayed here one night en route. It was very spacious. Saw a lot of deer. Camp host was friendly. It was a pretty park. Would stay here again. - JulieDR

Regular rate is $20/nite, holidays are $30/nite for 50 amp electric only at the site. If you make a reservation through the website for a holiday, they will require a 3 night stay but you can just drive in and have a shorter stay. It was not full for the July 4th weekend. The campground is basically 2 large grassy, paved, loops with plenty of space between each site. The sites are large and gravel. There are lots of big well-trimmed trees so your line of sight extends throughout the campground. It was beautiful and quiet here. Bathrooms were cleaned daily, but in need of an upgrade. Camp hosts were helpful and pleasant. There was substantial flooding in the park from the Ohio River, but it did not affect the campground or the roadways in/out. The Fort is closed due to the 2011 flooding issue. We loved it here. - R&S

Great place on the Ohio river our site had 50amp we had to have the front of the RV to the river which was good as the door and and windows opened on to a large area with good views of the river.
we arrived late but the owners came out and helped get the RV on the site, this is a very nice place on the river with good fishing for Carp and Catfish.
It was incredibly peaceful here with only the noise of the water, the passing barges and the coyotes in the nearby woods.
we will come back next time we come this way. - Hilary & Tony

Nice park with riverfront sites on the Ohio River. We stayed for 1 week. We enjoyed watching the tugs and barges going up and down the river. We had nice weather, but it seemed quite breezy most times. Our site was under a security light so very bright at night. Try to avoid a site under the 2 or 3 lights. Riverfront utilities are side by side connections so you will have a close neighbor. - User2260

Had a campsite right on the Ohio River which was kind of cool. We watched the barges go by. That is the good. Fair amount of seasonals that pretty much keep to themselves. This place floods about every Spring and this year was worse than normal. They were still recovering. Very sandy sites. Bathhouse was so far away most campers either didn't use it (us) or drove up to it. Not close to anything. Paducah is 30 minutes away and a cool place to be on a Sat. night. Probably wouldn't stay here again but if want to just hang around a campsite and watch the barges or maybe do some fishing, this would be just fine. Quiet. - welch

My husband and I stayed in our motorhome two nights at this location to attend the National Quilt Museum. The entrance to the campground was overgrown and this should have been our first indicator. The entrance/driveway/road is single lane only. The grass throughout the entire park needed to be mowed in the worst way, branches/limbs on shrubs and trees needed to be trimmed up in order for the motorhomes to pull in and out without scratches; dead limbs were lying on the ground; flowerbeds have seen their better days; tent sites were washed out; picnic tables rusty and need to be cleaned up and painted. Both the women and gentlemen restrooms were full of dried up bugs, cobwebs and dirt (this did not happen overnight). The store is not stocked but I am not sure I would have bought anything due to expiration dates. Did not go to pool based on the upkeep of everything else. The "pond/lake" is full of scum; did not set outside due to mosquito and flies. The couple was nice but part of being in the hospitality business is having a clean campground. There is more work than the staff that was present could do. This place needs a lot of work in more ways than one. Lots of potential for this campground but worst KOA we have ever stayed. We will not return. - PhenT

Clean, neat with friendly staff. Pool looked refreshing. Covered patio nearby the pool. The sites are very close. Your picnic table is right up against your neighbors sewer connection. - camper19709

We liked it here. Woodsy with nice scenary. Nicely maintained and good wifi. Quiet. They have a few sites with satellite views. Had no problems maneuvering with a 35' MH and TOAD. Owners could not be nicer. Definitely stay here again. - belgique
Oct 2015 - $26.00
We stayed here for two nights on our way to Nashville. The RV Park has about 1/3 seasonal sites, 1/3 long term and about 1/3 for overnighters. the Park is clean and neat. Wi-Fi only works in the main office or laundry room. Staff were very helpful in what to see and do in the area. Would stay here again if passing through this area. - JD1040
Mar 2014 - $25.00
We stopped here just for the night. Rate is cash. If you use plastic, it's a dollar or two more. Our pull through site was nice & level. Nice lake to walk the dog around. Staff was friendly. Although we were just off the interstate, highway noises were not a problem. Easy on & off highway. Don't think I would use this as a destination campground but would definitely stay here again when passing through. Lots of full timers. - bgw5350

We stayed overnight while passing through this area, the park is convenient to I-24. For one night it was fine but we would not have enjoyed a longer stay. Park maintenance was just OK, some area look worn. Restrooms were not very clean or air conditioned. Wi-Fi only works close to office. The rate shown was the Passport America rate and it was worth that. There are a lot of permanent residents, the ones we met all seemed friendly. - Dat

Showers and restrooms were not open, which was not disclosed to us when we checked in. Had to try multiple sites before finding one with both working water and electric. Site was nice and level. They were very nice folks and when we asked about check-out time pretty much said whenever as there was no one there. - Gail K

This is a older campground that hasn't kept up with changing trends in RVing. Electric and Water hookups were a stretch to get to. We backed up almost to the end of the pad so the electric would connect. Electric held 30 amp service.
Before I go on, we stayed on a holiday weekend and the place was overrun. My guess is that under normal non-holiday times the park is large and roomy.
With the crowd, I have to give the staff a pass on the cleanliness of the bathhouses.
They are still old and in need of refurbishment.
Just driving in and out of the park was challenging with bikes and all golf carts.
Not for us. Won't be back. - Melbroo

Nice campground, easy in and out. Large rig friendly we had a 35' bumper pull. The amenities are very dated. For this location and price: well worth it. We spent a week here while visiting my family. I have stayed here twice now and will come back. - Lost_countryboy

This park has steadily gone downhill for the past several years. It used to be one of Kentucky's premier campgrounds but apparently budget cuts have affected it. Shower houses were dirty most of the time, park was overcrowded (it was a holiday weekend). Sites were roomy and many were level but utilities were a long way from the paved campsite. Lots of mosquitoes due to poor drainage in the campground. Small children drove golf carts and golf carts were operated all hours of the night in dark conditions. Biggest problem was $20 tents were placed in sites beside $200,000 motor homes and many campers were not really "campers," and did not use well known camper etiquette. We won't be back. - hughdogg6

After having driven some 300 miles to inspect CG for possible seasonal camping; agreeing to a potential waterfront site and wanting to leave a deposit, was told later by owner (following 4 unanswered phone calls) that I had been shown the wrong lot and it was not available. However, a smaller less accessible lot was available. Be aware of CG's COMPUTER SYSTEM!!! Also, was told that I couldn't have had the lot I wanted because other seasonal campers had first rights of refusal, but also had been told there were no other names on the list for that particular lot. MASS CONFUSION!!!! Was also told when I asked why owner hadn't returned my calls (after being given messages 3 times), "maybe you should just go somewhere else to find a place. "Now that's HOSPITITALITY!!! CG advertises waterfront sites, but they are not available as they are occupied by yearly campers! A lake view is obtained by walking around other TT to possibly see some water. - rcharris
