4 Parks near Shelbyville, Kentucky
Aug 2016 - $15.00
What a gem! $15 for a campsite! Wow! The only way we found this campground was with RVParkReviews, and we're glad we did! It's very small, only 10 sites, but we called ahead and he said he'd save a site for us. We had to ask for the address (1433 Burks Branch Road), and Google Maps found it.
The park is lovely with a small fishing lake, lots of grass, a nice playground, and pedal boats for rent. The sites have concrete pads which are very short, but we managed to get all the wheels on it. We just parked our tow vehicle on the asphalt in front. As someone else mentioned, the manager's house is the office and it reeks of cigarette smoke, but he was helpful. The bathrooms are pretty rustic, but they are clean and there's plenty of hot water. There's no wifi, but I had a good enough Verizon signal, and I can buy a lot of data with the money we saved here! - mom2wildlife

We had called ahead to reserve a spot, the gentleman was very nice, we tried to use a CC to hold it as we didn't know what time we would get in. He refused, just said 'Make sure you show up'. We did show up about 7 p.m., he had just given our site to someone one else, but did have a couple of other sites open if I could get my rig backed into them. I took a look at them and knew that it wouldn't be a problem. I was concerned our 37' RV would extend too far into the road way, but he was ok with me putting the tag axle tires just off the concrete pad into the grass. Once that was done, had an amazing evening and morning at the park. Very peaceful, beautiful and extremely affordable campground. I would highly recommend this park. I hate to though, because it is a gem, and with only 10 sites can fill up quickly. If cigarette smoke bothers you, I would recommend not walking into the office as he was smoking while filling out our info. That is the only bad thing I can say about the park! The office is his house, so if he wants to smoke, it is his house. Cash or Check only. - JaNorma

We were near and called and left a message to get a call back. It took probably over an hour, but Bob called and told us how to get there. Not for the faint of heart camper, but fine for us. Beautiful park stretches along dammed up creek lake. We were visiting folks so would not be there much. Very small sites, concrete to park on, face the doublewide. No table, but picnic table across grass near lake. Only a tent site right on lake that we saw, others are near the lake. Restrooms are rustic, but clean. Plenty of hot water. Bob knew that we would be back late and it was to rain, so he didn't lock up till we were home. We would camp here again. - jumpup

Big rig friendly with very large level sites. Campground is great if you want quiet rural area and far away from everything. Of course no internet service because state park. Also, could not get my Verizon internet nor cell phone service. No dog park but lots of grass to walk dog. Bike riding was great. Showers had weak water pressure. Laundry was good. - Fulltimersrv

We had a great site close to the bath house which was clean. Nice area to walk and ride bikes, horses are welcome too. Our family enjoyed the fishing. - Dottyann

This is a nice campground about 10 miles outside of Frankfort KY. Initial impressions were that the grounds were somewhat "aged" but after paying and heading to the site, the actual grounds are very nice. They are back quite a bit from the office and well maintained, quiet and pleasant. Our only issue was that the electric spiked high voltage every evening around 7:00. This caused our EMS to shut down the electric to our coach and start the inverter to protect our system. The length of time varied each day. We had good Verizon cell and air card coverage. The owners were very pleasant. We would return if in the area. - Gypsy Turtles

Rate reflects a weekly rate. This is a gem located north of Frankfort on the Kentucky River at the mouth of the Elkhorn Creek. Entry can be misleading as you cross a single-lane bridge on pavement and then transition to gravel. The area around the office and the storage area are a bit unkempt, but as you are escorted to your site you round the bend and see a beautiful, unspoiled meadow. All roads are gravel and single lane but courtesy makes traversing them no problem. We requested a site for our satellite and had no problem connecting. However, many sites are in the shade so be sure to request an open site if that is important to you. The full-hook-up sites have many seasonals but their campsites are neat. The hook-ups are conveniently located and easily accessed. The sites are gravel surrounded with grass. This is not a resort but if you like a state park atmosphere with full hook-ups, you'll enjoy Still Waters. There are also two primitive areas and water/electric only sites available for RVs and tents with a dump station on the grounds. There are no trains, no highway noises, no city lights. Frisbee golf,fishing, hiking, volleyball and a lots of wide open spaces for the kids to run are located on the grounds as well as canoe rentals available at the concession in the campground. Probably could be busy/zoo on a summer/holiday weekend or if there's a company picnic on the grounds, but during the week it is an oasis. Located about 10 miles north of Frankfort, Still Waters is close enough to access all the sightseeing available in the area. Would definitely return again. - Here4Now

Our pull-through is very long but part is on grass and there is no sewer. - Jimjul

WE stayed 2 days at Elkhorn, one day resting up from a long drive. Our site was concrete pad with both concrete and a wooden patio. The sites are very. Because of the patio and our short stay it did not seem bad. We had very considerate and nice neighbors. For a longer stay it was a little close quarters. Site was level, but cars & trucks parked across the street made it a little tight getting backed in correctly. Admittedly we are not expert at that.
The restrooms were separate from the pool area- both a plus and a minus. They were clean and comfortable, carpeted, not seen that before. It was very clean however.
We enjoyed the cable and good wifi.
there were good spaces to walk your dog and a container or two to put clean up for him. - sunandwater

Great shaded sites. Most of them are paved with water and 30/50 amp and cable T.V. Bathhouse was absolutely spotless. Nice pool and fishing in Elkhorn Creek is close to all sites. Grandkids enjoyed their stay with us. Only issue was that the campground is listed under Full Hookup Sites, but all of the sites with sewer hookups are taken up by long term campers. Dump station was easily accessed. - Whiskyboyz
