Campsites are not level and were very muddy after several days of rain. Unfortunately I they allow people to leave rugs on the grass which kills the grass and this creates a muddy mess after a rain. This could be remedied by putting gravel in the patio areas. Utilities are ok, but water connections are shared and far away from each site. Park is celebrating Halloween the whole month of October and it is very noisy between the road traffic on the highway, cars, trucks and golf carts driving around the campground and lots of kids playing in the streets long after dark. We camped at Fort Boonesborough State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here while visiting friends in Richmond. The campsites are closer together than in any state park we have seen, also noisiest. Concrete factory and busy road with truck traffic nearby. Large unavoidable mud hole next to RV door. Water access is on the right, far off, and power on left. Site barely fit our RV and disconnected toad. On the good side staff are friendly and bathrooms are clean. Overall it feels like a city type KOA, not a state park. Bring lots of water hose, and earplugs if light sleeper. We camped at Fort Boonesborough State Park in a Motorhome.

The area is beautiful, but the campground was a disappointment. Many sites are not level, pull through site are half pavement and have gravel. Out site has a huge pot hole about 6 feet by 4 feet. Bring a long water hose because you share water with the site next to you. Water hookup is nowhere near the electrical pedestal. If you are looking for peace and quiet, look elsewhere. The highway noise is extremely loud, and a cement mixing plant is within stones throw of our site and the pound noise sounds like a train running constantly and they start up at 6 a.m. obviously the camp hosts have little to do because the fire rings are full of debris. The checkin staff did not even know the hours of the park. There are only about 25 sites with sewer hookup starting with site #1. Water pressure is good. We will not be returning to this noisy environment. We camped in site 98. We did get satellite. We camped at Fort Boonesborough State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I hadn't been to this State Park for over 30 years, was amazed at how clean and nice everything was. This has become our CG to stay at now when visiting friends. The bath house is new and very clean, the grounds were mowed. There is a ton of stuff to do in the park itself. Will definitely be back. We camped at Fort Boonesborough State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Everything was very clean and neat in this park even though it was full. Restrooms and grounds were immaculate! Also, we were amazed that a state park provided laundry facilities. My only complaint would be that the sites are very close together, and there is no privacy at all. Interior roads were quite easy to navigate. We barely squeezed into our pull-thru site without having to unhitch, but some pull-thru sites were longer. The route we took from Lexington on 418 had lots of low-hanging branches and one extremely steep hill. I would not recommend it for high profile fifth wheels.

We camped here for 2 nights in a motor home. There are few full hookup sites and even fewer pull through sites. This is a VERY busy park. We had a full hook up site and the water pressure and electric were good. You should be able to get satellite reception in most sites. Sites A for the most part not level. You'll have to work at it at most sites. But a good park close to the highway. We camped at Fort Boonesborough State Park in a Motorhome.

The site we were given (#12) was a bit muddy so we had to strategically position the camper to avoid getting mud on the shoes. The site could be improved greatly with the addition of a little gravel. The park is nice, spread out, with good spacing between sites. We were surprised to learn that the Fort is closed on Monday and Tuesday....but we travel this way often and next time we'll plan to see the Fort. The drive in to and out of the campground requires slowing down to turn from the main road on a downhill........and conversely, when leaving, you have to pull out on the main road going uphill. That can be exciting if there are big trucks on your tail. We camped at Fort Boonesborough State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A very nice state park. There are a few FHU which we had. Others are electric and water. Please be sure to bring a very long hose or serveral hoses as the water is very far from each site. As others have commented on the size of pads which differs and parking a large rig which can be difficult in some sites on a crowded weekend I would like to comment on the showers. The showers near the front part of the park must me brand new. There are six shower stalls plus one more for handicap campers. These are heated and air conditioned with a nice "curb" preventing water from flowing into the dressing area. Many sinks and flush toilets which are cleaned every day. As the park filled on a Friday night, smoke did become thicker but rain put an end to that. This park has a beautiful "primative" tenting area which is very shaded and quiet. Beyond that are signs indicating where the first Fort Boonesborough was really built. We camped at Fort Boonesborough State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice RV park, as with most some spaces are better than others. Road and angle of spaces can be little tight for big rigs, it took me a while to get my 5th wheel backed in. Positives, they have nice pool on site, playground, putt putt course (not greatest but still fun for kids). Nice camp store with most of your camping essentials. They have activities on frequent basis, when we were there they had a Thanksgiving potluck, they provided the meat. Very good meal. Negatives - Sites can be a little tight, our site dropped off in the back, hard to get jacks set. Water was about 40 ft away on opposite side of my hookup, so I had to run my hose through my patio area. We camped at Fort Boonesborough State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Old Fort Boonesborough is right down the road for you touring pleasure. A couple of nice restaurants are near too. Hall's on the River is a good one.

This is a very pretty, pleasant campground, with much shade and comfortable space between sites. We had looked at the map and selected a site (153) on a corner, with ample space on both sides. We arrived on a Saturday, and the park was absolutely crammed with campers, with many children and some adults roaming all the roads on bicycles. It was an intense family scene. Most of the sites had multiple vehicles in addition to the camper, filling the spaces between sites. At least half the sites had campfires going, on a very hot day(!), filling the campground with thick smoke. We had to seal ourselves up in our motorhome in order to breathe. The one good thing was that the campers were reasonably quiet, with no loud music whatsoever. Sunday morning, they started pulling out, leaving absolutely no trash behind, and the place was mostly empty and clean by 2 p.m. If you want a peaceful, relatively smoke-free experience, come here Sunday through Thursday. Staff was pleasant and helpful. We camped at Fort Boonesborough State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Boonesborough fort has an interesting history. It has been rebuilt and is used for reinactments, which are popular with tourists. It is a short distance from the campground, so that reinactments do not impact campers. The campground is about 15-20 miles from town, not terribly convenient for dining out.

Park is located south of Lexington, KY. We stayed twice within a month while a family member recovered from an surgery in a Lexington hospital. Campground store is open until 10 PM each night. When traveling to and from the hospital, open til 10 PM was a nice convenience. Our locations were peaceful which allowed family members to sleep during the day hours.

Easy check-in process, greeted by friendly folks at the office. Site was of adequate size to handle truck and fifth wheel without having to unhook. Be aware of the mud if it rains. Nice site if it is dry but very messy if it rains. We camped at Fort Boonesborough State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
