Agree with others, good for a few nights stay or if you want to visit nearby distilleries or Louisville. The office is only staffed in the afternoon, so if you try to call as we did you may get an answering machine. Someone eventually called back. We were told that if we arrived when no one is in the office to just pick a site in the front, which is what we did. The sites are nice and level, big rig friendly, pull-thru and gravel. They are pretty close together and there is no picnic table but we had full hook-ups. The wifi worked ok. There is no pool, dog run, or store. Laundry is $2.50/washer. Nearby is a big weekend flea market, grocery. Met our needs. We camped at Grandma's RV Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Near the freeway so lots of noise and on the weekend the people going to flea market going roaring down the road that is also the entrance to RV park. Restrooms are very clean but no privacy for showers for the modest among us. We stayed here 7 nights because it is very accessible to freeways and Louisville. We camped at Grandma's RV Camping in a Travel Trailer.

We overnighted here and found it to be just what we need for that stay: close to the highway, clean and uncluttered, easy to navigate, level and dry, and affordable. The office manager literally jogged out to meet us, pointed us to an open pull-thru site, invited us to get set up and then come back to register/pay. Now, it's not the sort of place I'd want to hang out for a vacation (it's a bit sparse) and they do have a number of signs regarding dogs that might make dog owners feel picked on (we're not dog owners, so no worry for us). We would stay here again for sure. We camped at Grandma's RV Camping in a Motorhome.

Stopped for an over night stay. Park is clean with close sites and all gravel. Nicely landscaped and strict rules on dogs which we had no problem with. I carried my small dogs to the dog walk area that is close and to rear of the short stay parking. No picnic table and the concrete patio was half on the site next to us. Water spigot is below ground so be prepared to get on your knees when hooking up. The elderly man taking our money was decidedly unfriendly and gruff. We'd stay here again for a night if passing through. We camped at Grandma's RV Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is handy to Interstate. Gravel sites FHU. Sites are a little tight but doable. We arrived at 12:30pm and no staff were here. Owner show about
1:00. Tenant in park told us to take one of front sites as they are used for
short timers. When owner arrived he said fine. Staff that take payment arrive at 3:00. Still a good park for a couple of days. We camped at Grandma's RV Camping in a Motorhome.

This is not a campground, just a gravel RV parking lot. Sites are all gravel with no amenities and closely spaced. Sites are barely long enough for a 40' motorhome and short toad. There is NO CABLE, weak WIFI, and good OTA TV reception. Beware of the grumpy old man owner in the green Susuki Samri, who tours through the place looking for an excuse to cause trouble. We camped at Grandma's RV Camping in a Motorhome.

Stay away! Arrived after lunch, office was closed and no one answered their phone. Sat and waited in the street till someone showed up. Checked in and parked in the cramped site. Your awning will hit your neighbor if fully extended. My wife started to walk the dog after getting parked. She walked past a shrub near the office and an old man (Grandpa) screamed at her don't let that dog get close to the shrubs, she asked him why and he yelled back very rudely "read the rules". He continued to say the dogs "piss" on my shrubs and kill them, I'll kick you out myself. At check-in we did not get the special rules for dog owners. She came back to our rig in tears he was so ugly to her. We paid for 3 days and stayed because we had to. He does not like kids either and yells at them too. Stay anywhere but here, they obviously do not appreciate their customers. We camped at Grandma's RV Camping in a Motorhome.

Called in a reservation about 2.5 hours out from Grandma's. Needed a place to stay overnight on our way back north. Took our payment over the phone and gave us site #4. Office would be closed by the time we arrived, but the receipt would be in the electrical box.

Site #4 was occupied when we got there, so we took the next available, and wouldnchaknow it, our receipt was in the electric service box. A phone call would have been nice letting us know but, no harm, no foul.

Utilities all good. Nice long sites, didn't have to unhook on pull-thru.

Make sure you've got a nice long dump hose, or your neighbors sewer will be right outside your front door.

Easy on/off with freeway also means you can hear it but, it wasn't bad. We camped at Grandma's RV Camping in a Travel Trailer.

This is a parking lot with hookups. Gravel level sites spaced very very closely. Hookups are all at rear of site so long hoses are needed. No amenities other than slow WIFI, just a clean place to safely park for the night. We camped at Grandma's RV Camping in a Motorhome.

Good for overnight stays, right on I-65. Hookups are good. Somewhat over priced for what it is. Very tightly managed, which can be a good thing. Lots of noise, trains, planes, I-65. We camped at Grandma's RV Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

We were in the Louisville area to visit our families and this park is the most convenient to where they live. On the positive side, the sites are level, hookups worked well, and the price is very reasonable. On the negative, the sites are very narrow. With rigs on both sides of us we could not put out our awning and sit outside. The biggest issue is one of the owners, Grandpa! He is very obnoxious and rude. Since this is our first RV, our families wanted to visit to see our rig. We were very quiet and inside. One afternoon, we had 5 visitors inside the rig which we paid for and had checked in. We were not trying to sneak them in. Grandpa was not happy when signing them in but we promised to be quiet and not disturb anyone. After an hour, he came an knocked on the door and chased our guests out (My 92 year old mother in law!). I was embarrassed. He said, "We don't allow no parties!" Grandpa does not care about customer service and is very rude. On the other hand, when his son was there he was helpful and courteous and always asked if we needed anything. We did not have a pet, but the signs warning about all the pet rules are over the top with frequent warnings about eviction. We camped at Grandma's RV Camping in a Motorhome.

After traveling all day in heavy rain we exited exit 116 to the park-easy in and easy out. This was a nice overnight park for us, with full hookups. Park roads and sites are gravel, fairly narrow sites with no grass between sites. Some plantings, however. Good Verizon and MiFi reception. In spite of all the rain sites we were high and dry and level. Owner was very gracious when we called for a campsite and during our check in. We will stop here again. We camped at Grandma's RV Camping in a Motorhome.

Great spot for an overnight stay at a competitive price in this area of Kentucky. Gravel sites are clean and well kept. Reservations suggested as this park fills up fast. We would stay here again. We camped at Grandma's RV Camping in a Motorhome.

No trees, no rocks, no fire ring, no table, and no frills. Clean, convenient, EZ for big rigs, EZ on and off interstate, gravel level sites, reasonably priced, and limping WiFi. Next to not-so awesome flea market and near Zappos shoe outlet, Louisville, Patton Museum, and Fort Knox. Lady who answers the phone is hard of hearing, so be patient. Would stay again.

Park was very clean & well kept. Easy acess from I-40. Gravel Spaces were NOT spacious-but adequate. Good drainage-as we there during rain. No puddles. Cell Service was good we used our own Hotspot for internet connections. Staff was helpful and pleasant, and gave direction to near by attractions. Would stay here again.
