20 RV Parks near Parkers Lake, Kentucky
Sep 2006 - $22.00
Campsites are not level and are grass and dirt. The setting is very nice - the lake was pretty low when we were there. The staff is very nice. There is a playground for kids. This would be a nice destination park for kids and families visiting Cumberland Falls State Park. - Bearpup

We have a 24 foot van and these are extremely small spaces length wise. Width wasn't so bad in the space and it is nice in the forest but so surprised how small and very little space to back your RV in to spot. - Scooterd16

Originally had site # RV23, Arrived to a packed campground, unable to back into our site and had to be moved to a "walk up" site. Park is old. Sites are very very small cannot even fit a 20FT TT. Sites are very uneven. The area attraction itself is not taken care of. Cumberland Falls is the area attraction and there is trash everywhere you look. I would look elsewhere for a spot to stay. The staff are friendly enough for a state park but this place needs updated or put on the map as a tent location ONLY. No RV should have to squeeze in here. - jonk90

Sites very close and very small. Water and electric hookups while there, are between 50 and 75 feet from pad. We have a 24.5' 5vr - and the 30' pad really was 21', and the back end of the trailer would've been left hanging and unsupported over the cliff. Perhaps a great site for very small TT, popups and tent camping - but not suitable, at all for other than that. Great camp hosts and friendly folks. - KB Farms

Roads can be a little tight for big rigs. Roads and sites are rock. Sites tend to be a little unlevel. Water pressure low. Best we had was 35 psi. Plenty of grassy areas for dogs. Right next to road so some road noise during day. We thought it was a little expensive for what you get. - Ruffles

Nice size for big rigs. Close to the Cumberland Falls. White water rafting trip is very easy for all ages, it's no where near the rides I've taken on other rivers. Very nice area just to drive around and hike the many trails in the park. We also did the horseback tour next door through the woods and had some great views and photo ops.
Only pull through sites have full hookup, but there is a dump station by the office for the rest of the sites the are water and electric only. Same owner here since 1985. - Oceanblue

The RV sites are very basic. This is a hikers or white water rafting paradise. They have recently added RV facilities and these will get better. They offer shuttle service to the various hiking locations. It is the best place to stop if you have a big rig and want to visit Cumberland Falls State park as the park is not "Big" rig friendly. Shade is limited and sites are gravel. - A hitch and hop

The site required levelers for the RV, but it was impossible to set the picnic table Level on a hill. Nice shade tree, but unable to use our satellite. Limited local channels. Electric hookup was inadequate. We were allowed to select our site from a map of available sites, after asking for a 30 amp, and water. Had we known that the electric hookup for our site was shared with the adjacent site and only had one 20, one 30, and one 50 amp plug, and the 30 amp was already in use, we would have gone elsewhere. The electric and water were also on the opposite side of our RV hookup. Had to use a heavy duty long cord and hook up to the 20 amp. Discovered later while walking that the electric sharing sites were only in one part of the park. There were empty sites that were not made available to us. - Texas E-S

The park sits on an island. The park contains 94 campsites with electric and water hookups and a dump station and some tent sites. Some sites are max 30 amps, some 50 amps. We could not determine a pattern. Also beware that some sites have shared utilities, whoever gets there first, gets the 50 amp plug. And the utilities were on the wrong side for us.
During our stay we found the bath houses are kept clean. Roads and pads are paved and each has a lantern pole, picnic table, sitting area and fire ring. Sites vary in size and levelness. The campground is hilly and the road in is narrow, but doable in a big rig. No WiFi, Verizon service strong. You can hear a train, but it never was so loud it woke us up. Also sharing the island is a 18 hole, nice golf course and marina and boat ramp. The pool is no longer in use and is now just an eyesore. - cincychic

This is a wonderful park that we enjoy staying at, on an island in Lake Cumberland. Most of the sites are down in the trees with a few open and sunny. Some sites have an electrical box that has to be shared, with 50 amp and 30 amp for whoever gets there first. Easy to access laundry facilities. Lots of shopping about 10 miles to the North in Somerset. The only downside with this park are the never ending train whistles, and we love trains. Burnside is actually listed as a top place to watch trains, in some railroad books, but it's a major crew changing point and there are whistles all night long. We usually have to have the windows closed, fans on, even earplugs, to get a good nights sleep. The Stearns scenic railroad is also about 25 miles to the South. It is a beautiful resort State Park however, with a huge marina nearby. The sound from the train seems to travel from the large bridge across Lake Cumberland,down the water, to where the park is. - elduque

We stayed a total of three nights here in July - one night on our way down to our furthest destination point, and two nights on the way back. On our first visit, we arrived on a Sunday evening around 6:00. There was no one there, and the gate was locked. My T-mobile cell phone service did not work, so we couldn't call. I slipped through the side of the the gate to try to find a work-camper or a long-term resident. I found a wonderful couple who had Verizon service, and they were able to call the office. The husband not only got our site number, he took us to the site and back to the gate, giving us the code so we could get in. Almost a disaster, and an unwelcome surprise after a long day, but it all worked out. I would suggest that you call before your arrival on the day you are due to arrive to get your site information as well as the gate code so that you don't have a similar experience. This is a beautiful, quiet, woodsy campground. There are paths with gravel, and dirt paths through the woods and around the little lake. The lake is open for fishing, but not swimming, and it is too small to kayak. There is no noise or light pollution, so you can see the stars. It has a general sundry store, and they have a little cafe for breakfast and dinner (nothing fancy, and we didn't use it). The other campers were some of the friendliest people I've ever met camping. It is NOT a KOA-type campground, and there are no pre-planned activities (though there is a small playground and volleyball court). There is no pool, and the campground wifi isn't very good. Our AT&T hotspot couldn't get a functioning signal. They do have a laundry and shower, and trash must be taken to a trash area. It's the kind of campground I used to visit when I went camping with my family when I was a kid and we made our own fun and great memories. This is a wonderful campground - we loved it! - Morning Star

We stayed here for two nights. Winding narrow road for several miles coming into park. No shoulder on the road so drive carefully. This is a gated campground which was nice. They give you a code to get in and out after 5:00pm. The owners are in the process of enlarging the campground and are adding another lake and up to 100 new camping sites with utilities. They own many more treed acres to the east. Very nice people with a great vision for their expansion. We stayed in a pull through site which had a little grass between the sites, along with picnic table and fire pit. There are two playground areas which looked fairly new. Beautiful treed area with small lake. My husband was able to practice his fly fishing. We would stay here again when in the area. - Honalee

The park was a gem of a discovery near Corbin Kentucky. The staff were very helpful and friendly. They shared with us all of their plans to make the park better. Close to the freeway and Corbin, home of Colonel Sanders. Great store and food available at the office. Give them a visit. - vagabon life

Stayed here in our 21' Travel Trailer and this place was about what we expected. It is very out of the way, in the amazingly large and beautiful Big South Fork National River Recreational Area. This is one of the two main NPS campgrounds in the area and it is more out of the way and I suspect a little less maintained.
As other reviewers have stated, the facilities are a little older and in need of some TLC. Also, many of the sites don't have a lot of shade. The park was fairly full as we were there on a weekend, though no problems with noise. We reserved online and there was a sign on our site with our name saying reserved when we arrived. We got there late in the day and were there two days and never interacted with staff or camp hosts.
We did have a small issue with our 30amp breaker tripping with AC running when my wife microwaved something. We haven't ever had this issue before, so I'm not sure if there was an issue with our site's power. Site's water spigot didn't want to stay on even with the diverter pulled down. Used a bungee cord wrapped around the handle to keep the water flowing.
Overall, we would stay here again as it is cheap and in a beautiful area, this park could become a real gem with a little love. - sjeuck

This park isn't for everyone, but we were here to visit the Bartel Mine (excellent tour BTW), kayak the Big South Fork and lay over a holiday weekend, somewhere without a huge hassle and lots of noise.
This fit the bill. Clean, well-patrolled by park rangers, and plenty of shade. Very nice mostly back-in and level spots with easy, accessible hook-ups. Hosts were friendly and very helpful. - kharmaquest

When we first got to the campground we weren't impressed. It was smaller than we thought it would be and kind of outdated, but as the day went on we liked it more.Check in was by self or campground host. It was very quiet (especially for a holiday weekend) and people were friendly. We stayed for 2 days and spent them sightseeing or hiking various trails. If we are in the area we would stay again to hike,but we wouldn't make this a main vacation point. Checking out was easy and the dump station was very easy to use.Overall,we had a good camping experience. - kycamper02

This was our first visit to Holly Bay Campground, and boy were we pleased with this campground! The campground is very spacious and heavily forested throughout - to the point of barely seeing the campsite next to you. Laurel Lake borders nearly three sides of the campground, but with the woods all around, it is hard to see the water from the campsites. The good thing is that there is a gorgeous, shaded hiking trail that goes down and around part of the lake.
This has become our favorite campground to visit as it is the most scenic, clean, and quiet we have been to. - Mcoffman

Nightly rate reflects the monthly cost ($450 but going to $500). Most sites are long-term (annual rate $2,000 plus electric.) Good pool but quite cold! Satellite was excellent, cable is very good also. Camp WiFi can be spotty but was excellent in site 27. Due to a divorce, campground is now two parks but the host serves both seamlessly. Cash or check only. Due to the limited number of transient spots, reservations are a good idea. - davedopp

We were here for a week. Site was a grassy pull through that was fairly level. Utilities were good. We were there beside our best friends who were born and raised in the area so we mostly spent the week with them showing us all the sights. The park only has about 9 sites for transients as it is 98% permanent residents. Close to Somerset which has all the eating and shopping places you might need, - zrxh14

The price increase of $50 (to $210) per week makes this park a much less favorable place to stay. We've stayed here many times in the past. There are several other parks in the area much less expensive. I was disappointed at the number of very loud motorcycles here this time. Park seems to be moving towards more long-term residents. No trees so excellent satellite reception. - davedopp

Nice campground. Very quiet, no playground. Has beautiful views of Lake Cumberland from every site, but no access except boat ramp (no swimming) and stairs at far end of campground. Water up, lots of trees and trash floating by shore, but some families swam off the steps anyway. Really good swimming spot not far at Pulaski County Park. Basically in downtown Somerset, great location. But, really steep hill to get to it, and if you meet someone else towing, narrow road. Would not go back just because of the hill and lack of good access to water for swimming. I have a 16 year old, 30 ft class A, and was not comfortable with the hill. One weird thing, the water and electric are at what I would consider the front of the site, in this instance, on the lake side. So, if I had backed in as expected, my door and awning would have faced the road, not the nice view. So I pulled in forward and used extensions. Believe most of the sites are like that. The dump is at the top of another steep hill. By the time you are at the dump, your vehicle is headed back downhill. I dumped at General Butler State Park, not far from there. $3, and totally flat. - solo woman

Mostly lakefront, but not lake access sites. You gotta drive to a loop at the end of campground and turn around back towards gate in order to back into site. Sites mostly level. Dump station is the cockeyedest set up I ever seen. It's up a short steep hill which can only be approached from outside the gate. Most units must be parked slightly down hill in order to dump. Fairly decent CG once you get past the traffic flow and dump station set up. I would not recommend it for long trailers or 5th wheels. We in a 30-footer and it was near maximum turning length for the roads. - ebaldy

There is a very steep, windy hill to go down to the campground. Be careful of boats coming up and the reverse on exiting. Most sites have at least a view of the lake. All sites are gravel with a fire ring and water and electric only. Some sites are up a steep hill by the shower house. This is also where the dump station is located. Large campers cannot get up the hill. The showers are old with timed water but clean. A button has to be pushed frequently to get the water to flow. Some visitors are very inconsiderate and leave their cars and boats on the road with little room for campers to get through to their spots. The host and volunteers are very nice. - DisneyGirl
