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. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

If you have time, visit old town Paducah along the waterfront. There is a lovely park to sit and watch river traffic. There are wonderful murals along the flood wall. There is a shopping mall only one exit away.

Nice, small park, near interstate, but not so near to have excessive noise. Level grassy site, with large trees. This site had only electricity, no sewer, water was a distance away (and not turned on). As it was, I only needed electricity, but it seemed a little pricy for that type of hookup. Park appeared to have mostly permanent residents, but at least 8-10 sites available for overnighters. For overnight, it is fine. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed for three nights in our 39 foot fifth wheel. Sites were level and easy to get in and out of. Location is convenient to the freeways but still far enough to be quiet. Would stay here again. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The National Quilt Museum is near the historical downtown. Also the historical downtown area of Paducah is very interesting. Great murals on the floodwall downtown showing the history of the area.

We arrived late after a challenging day where we blew a tire on our MH. Wasn't in the best of spirits, but after showing up at 9:40pm, I was greeted by the owner who not only was professional but gave me the name of a service center to look at my RV prior to leaving the next day with phone number. Park was fairly crowded. Grounds were clean and for being in Paducah proper, had a rustic feel to it. Showers were good, albeit a little dated. Close to the Kentucky Oaks Mall. Easy on and easy off the interstate. Down the road from a Pilot truck stop, which was handy. Would definitely stay there again. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

This is our first visit this campground and we have been pleasantly pleased. Being November and cold weather is upon us, I found it impressive that while making reservations we were told if we had an insulated water hose, they had their faucets well insulated so we would not have to disconnect water at night. Sites are gravel, but fairly level. Electrical service is good, managers are very friendly. We would stay again. Rate based on weekly rate. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed at Fern Lake at least three times but this is our first review of this campground. It is close to the interstate, there is grass enough to walk pets, there is a Huddle House within walking distance and they do offer only a Good Sam discount. Two gas/diesel stations are adjacent to the above mentioned restaurant. The bath facility is adequate but needs some updating. We came without reservations and by early evening the place was full so this place is popular. From our perspective, the place is fine but only for a one night stop. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

The pull-through area is pretty much a gravel parking lot with full hook-ups. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Local TV is limited. Sites are wide, but not necessarily lengthy. I-24 noise is non-existent, although there is some local road noise. Laundry room has two new washer and dryers and is clean, although could use a fan as it's hotter than the hinges of: (and it's only May). We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Our site was a narrow gravel parking space and dusty. It had Wi-Fi, but so low a signal there was no connection. I would not stay here again. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The park is an easy on/off from I 24. The rest rooms are older but very clean. The people are very friendly and knowledgeable of the area as we ask for several directions. It is located close to town with the quilt museum and the water front displays. The sites are level and very easy pull through sites with wide roads. We would stay here again.

Stay here every year for the annual AQS Quilt Show. Owners very friendly/helpful. Wi-Fi is spotty, but had good Verizon broadband reception. Too many trees for the satellite. Restroom is old but spotless and washer/dryer available. Price reflects Good Sam discount. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This was our second stay at this park; it is a nice, family owned campground with friendly, helpful staff. WiFi signal is good. Over air TV signal was so-so and we had difficulty getting satellite. (We were in the 50 amp pull through sites.) This is a good short stay campground. Sites and facilities are well maintained. Restrooms are older but clean. Laundry is small (two washers and dryers) but clean. We will stay here again. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Price was with Good Sam discount. Family owned and the people really try to keep the place up. The woman in the office was extremely helpful and friendly. There are some longer term tenants but their sites are well kept. The 50 amp is closer to the road, which was quiet overnight but got a little busy in the morning. Park is close to the freeway but not within the noise corridor of the freeway. Some sites have grass and they are much nicer, but ours was just a gravel drive through area because we wanted 50 amps. We did have nice shade in the afternoon and the site was extremely wide. I would stay here again if staying in the Paducah area, but we don't like to sit outside, so the gravel doesn't matter. If you prefer grass, ask for it, but it won't be 50 amp. Easy in and out. My Verizon cell and air card worked well. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

No road noise noticeable in our MH. Has a clean BR and showers, nice shower water strength. Had a level site, working electricity and water, didn't use sewer but it was right here. Well kept yard. Family owned and obviously cared for. Good Wi-Fi. Dog friendly. Nice lady. Would stay again. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

A nice CG with needed basic amenities. Staff excellent. Convenient to stores and restaurants yet quiet location close to I-24. Fine for a one night stop over, or for visit to Paducah. Would stay here again. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a nice, small, family owned and operated campground with easy freeway access that’s just far enough away that traffic noise isn’t a problem. It’s well-designed, with overnighters and long-termers in separate sections. Everything seems well kept. No Wi-Fi, but AT&T 3G was strong. Our pull-through was narrow and spartan, but level and quite adequate for an overnight. The afternoon shade was most welcome. We look forward to returning next month so we can make time to see the quilting museum. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Motorhome.
