1 Park near Richmond, Kentucky
Oct 2015 - $25.00
The park is a rustic park in the trees. Our biggest concern is that it is not as big rig friendly as we would have liked. We phoned ahead a few days earlier and they said things were getting slow so no need to booked ahead even though we were a big rig (39 foot 5th wheel). When we got there on Saturday afternoon there were 2 pull thru sites left. We were told to go ahead and drive around and choose what we wanted, either the pull thru or a backin. One pull thru was long enough so we choose that. A bit narrow to get in around the posts and trees. Not level front to back. Good thing we went back to the office immediately to register since the woman in the office was on the phone saying only 2 pull thrus left. I quickly interrupted and said ours was taken.
The water connection was on a shared pedestal on the other side of Rv so we needed 2 hoses to reach it.
Overall probably a good park for smaller rigs but be ready to level your rig. The backin sites were maximum 35 feet if that, and then you would have to put your vehicle on the grass. No noise from the quarry this weekend. Water pressure appeared to be very high. - aries

What a great state park! Our site was large, but not level, causing us a bit of trouble to get settled, but once we were it was worth it. Unfortunately it rain/poured almost the entire time we were there. Due to weather we were unable to use the pool, although it was beautiful and would have been fun! The small camp store had basic necessities and there is a Walmart within 10 miles of the park. We arrived on a Sunday and could see that on a weekend the park would be packed. The fort, pool, etc. are closed on Monday and Tuesday, so if they are important to you, be advised. The weather really was a contributing factor to our stay there, the park has a fantastic warning system for weather, which is loud enough to wake us even at 3 AM! I can't wait to come back through this area and stay here when the weather is nicer and we can enjoy the amenities. - Casa

Check-in was a little awkward as no one was at the booth, and there was no real parking to check in at the store. Campsites were mostly asphalt and there were enough trees scattered about to make it a little tricky to get satellite. The grounds looked well-taken care of. The big problem with the campground was the next door stone quarry and the gravel or stone trucks that climbed and then braked on the way down on the steep roadway next to the campground. It was noisy, even at night. In addition, I had to drive the less than a mile to the actual fort to take a tour. I don't understand why the state cannot manage to have a park road, or at least a paved bike path the less than half-mile from the campground to the fort, since the main road is full of big trucks and not safe for walking or biking. They seem to own all the property in between, and even have one roadway in the day use area that comes within 500 feet of the fort. Could also use better access to the Kentucky River from the campground--maybe removing some trees and putting in paths? - judy_online
