5 RV Parks near Richmond, Kentucky
May 2017 - $35.00
The roads in this large campground are good and the sites are all paved. The campground has 161 sites. All have electric and water but only 18 of them are full hookup. Be sure to pay attention when making reservations if you want full hookups. The water hookups are shared between every other site and some of them are a long way from the campsite. I ended up getting out some hoses I haven't used in a while to reach our spigot. The road you turn on to get to the campground is at the bottom of a "trucks use lower gear" hill just before the Kentucky River Bridge. You will want to keep your speed down to make the turn onto Hwy 388 to get to the campground. Also, about half way down that same steep hill is the turn off for the Fort itself. You don't want that first turn, but rather, Hwy 388. While there is plenty of space between the individual campsites you might want to be aware that the back in sites aren't all deep enough for a larger RV. Also, if the campsite description says the slope is moderate or severe you can believe it. Some of the sites are pretty steep. Again, be sure to read the site description when making reservations. - nazpaz

The main attraction is the reconstructed Fort Boonesborough which was not yet open for the season. We were able to take a short trail from the campground to the fort and take exterior pictures. Bathrooms, showers and laundry were adequate if not pristinely clean. The staff were nice and the camp store had a good selection. We could not reach the water connection at our site so be aware the location of connections are not convenient on many sites. It rained while we were there and our campsite turned into a mud pit. Sites closer to the camp store were on higher ground. - CherylRV

We have stayed here twice and have always had a wonderful time here. They have a ton of activities to keep the kids busy, access to the Kentucky River, and the pool is wonderful. Most of the sites are going to require some sort of leveling, as most of them are slightly off level. All sites are paved as well as the road. AT&T cell service is good. Sites 1-26 are full hookups. Some sites will not have access to satellites due to the foliage. - jmcmanama

Pros: Easy on/off from I-75, and only $26/night.
The woman at check in was on the phone and helping me, but she put me close to the one bathhouse, and a little shade, which was an upgrade without changing the price.
Cons: Showers only had a short bench for your stuff. Had to try 3 showers to be able to control the temperature. Shower head is 8 feet up so no adjusting it.
Didn't seem to be a lot of vacationers staying; mostly full timers. - kidphd

Older campground at Exit 78. Has a small store and hardware store next door. Laundry, two swimming pools, large tent area and RV storage. No WiFi while we were here. Easy access to I-75 or historical area. Spaces close together, old-tree shade covers half the park. Workers occupy the side of the park opposite the pull-thrus. Local car wash next door. Fairly quiet even though it is off a busy highway. It rained hard while we were here but the water drained off quickly. We spent 3 nights there. - Ginger C Brown

Very small spaces, the adjacent site's sewer hose was right next to the picnic table. Their "rules" state pets must be on leashes and never left unattended. But several cats were running loose, and two dogs in an outdoor pen(also against the rules) and another two small dogs came running after us as I walked my dogs. Maybe long term guests don't have to follow the rules. Would not recommend this park to anyone with pets. - Ljbtn

We spent 3 nights here exploring the great town of Berea. Not the best park but it was quiet. No sewer & dump station does not have water. No wifi. Worker met us and directed us to our spot. Pull thru sites. Only water & electric. Full hooks with sewer were all full with what appears to be full time residents. Same rate with or without sewer. Not sure we'd stay here again. Looks rough all around. Needs a good grooming. We stayed in a motorhome. - Lazyp123

Not a bad park by any means, we've stayed in far worse. But pros and cons about balance out.
- Close to interstate and Walmart and lots of fast food restaurants
- Friendly and helpful managers
- Neatly mown and clean grounds
- Good price, $25 for water/electric or full-hookup sites. Unfortunately all full-hookup sites taken by long-term RV's.
- All sites easy to get in and out, mostly pull-thrus.
- No full-hookup sites available, all taken up by long-term RVs
- They have a dump station but there is no water available to rinse hoses
- All buildings rather (to very) run down.
- All bath/shower(?) rooms stay locked, cannot access.
- All ground very flat so if rainy weather there is some standing water
Overall not a bad park for overnight or short stays. - rdkeith

We arrived in rainstorm and paid cash to owner who greeted us in her truck. It appears she may have been on her way out when we arrived. Handed over cash with no paperwork and took pull-thru for the one night we stayed. Hard to judge the campground since everything was muddy and full of puddles due to the rain. Wi-fi was iffy. - Da Keeffes

Looks like at one time it was a nice park, sadly run down and mostly 'permanent' residents now. Very nice staff, looks like they are doing what they can. - Kbtx

We were here over the Fourth of July weekend so we tried to take that into consideration, but there were some things we couldn't overlook. First of all, the staff was wonderful and couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. They stopped by our site several times. Unfortunately the actual campground itself was in need of some desperate repairs. Across from our site was an old shower house (?) with a port-a-potty in front. The shower house was inoperable so the port-a-potty was the only bathroom for the 30+ people on our end of the camp site. In order to use a sink you had to walk all the way to the entrance. Our first night we were awoken at 11:00 by a chainsaw one of the other campers was using to cut their firewood and our next door neighbors were setting off mortar fireworks that were raining down on our RV. There were cars parked EVERYWHERE and the tent site below us kept driving their truck through our site and parking it next to our chairs. The second night wasn't quite as eventful. The woman next door was walking around without her pants on and they also had visitors so there were at least a dozen people crammed on one site. If you need a place to stay near Nicholasville then this is pretty much the only option, but I would try to stay somewhere else if possible. - coldwaterconch

I hate to be totally negative so, the 50 amp service was good. Wi-Fi was okay, but charged for each day. Hookups on wrong side of RV. Park Very run down. Lots were part grass part large rocks. Lots of old, I mean, Old trailers. We had reserved 5 days, when checking in changed that to 2. After 1 night, we left, they did refund the 2nd day lot rental. Staff was friendly. Would not camp here again - dj4pres

Little crowded, several permanent RVs there. Little loud after midnight. Had to pay $10.00 gate card deposit that you get back when leave. We left on Sunday Morning after 8:00 a.m. And no one was on duty to return card and retrieve the $10.00. I left card and my card asking to mail my $10.00, which they did. I also paid $10.00 extra for the pull thru lot, which was in a curve with lots behind you. - Sissy Wommack

We stayed here for our visit to the wonderful Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill just 9 miles away. The park is well-maintained. It is on the cliffs over looking Lake Harrington, and crammed full of seasonal guests. We arrived late in the day and got a back-in spot that was a little short for our 30 feet, but we parked at an angle and were able to keep our nose off the road. There is a marina a short walk down the road. We swam our dog there. We were surprised to see the sign saying that the marina charges for launching kayaks and canoes as well as power boats. That area of Kentucky has mostly narrow windy roads, and the road into this campground is no exception. - ShoreXplorers

This park is under new ownership and the new owners will be adding stronger Wi-Fi and cable TV next year. It's in the hills, on terraced sites and quiet. Lots of seasonals stay here as the marina is very close. A beautiful, man-made lake setting. Cell phone service is spotty due to the mountains. TV reception was good for our rig, as was the internet. If I lived closer I'd look into a seasonal site here. Nice place with friendly staff. We were here for a family reunion so spent several nights. - diamondg
