The park is quite large and is not laid out very well. If you camped here during the peak season, I think it would be very difficult to find your site or get in and out of it. The park is just a few minutes south of Louisville and we were hoping that they offered a shuttle service into the attractions in the city or had an agreement with a tour operator to pick campers up and drop them off again. The KOA in West Memphis offers this service and it's great. We had to unhook and drive into Louisville, where there is major highway construction on I-65 so getting around was confusing and the GPS wasn't much help. There is lots to see and do in Louisville and I think RVers would really appreciate not having to unhook and drive to them. The park is far enough off the interstate so there is no road noise and the Wi-Fi worked well. We would stay here again for a night or two. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stay at KOA's from time to time and this was a longer than normal stay for us (5 nites). We will say it has nice surroundings and tall mature trees which is a plus. It does have a few too many roads and the size of the sites are only average. All in all not a bad KOA. The reason for the low rating is we did not like their condescending reply when we gave them low marks on their entrance road which has you enter the park on the left side of the road which is unnatural and silly. Since KOA asked for a review we took the time to prepare one. Then they insult you -- very bad form. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is typical KOA in design and amenities. We did have a site with a paved patio, which we really like. The sites didn't seem overly tight or narrow. Long gravel pull-through sites. Easy in and out. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay here again. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Motorhome.

Large campground. Easy to get to from highway. Friendly staff, nice pool, dog park, and playground plus a nature trail and jumping pillow. Originally planned to bring our trailer but it was in for service so we rented a cabin. Glad we did. RV sites are VERY tight. Patio sites are not near as nice as what we have seen at other KOAs. It was hard to match sites with the layout map because there are little roads and pathways everywhere. Our cabin was very clean and well equipped. Price seemed high but we were committed to the days off and still enjoyed our few days away. Store was reasonably stocked and prices were fair. Cable TV was fine. Wi-Fi was nonexistent. Signal was very weak and we were never able to connect for more than a minute or 2 so we gave up and used our data. There are a lot of permanent sites, mainly grouped in 1 or 2 sections. Many were very dirty and sites very cluttered with weeds, junk, etc. Several cars sped through the campground to the permanent section. Mini golf course was OK but needs some basic maintenance to make it even worth enjoying. This seems to be the theme throughout the park. Everything seemed 'OK' but the place has such potential and it was like they just cannot keep up. The area around the office and store looks great. It goes slightly downhill as you venture away. We would stay again but only in a cabin. We would not bring our trailer here due to the very, very cramped sites. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Campground Cabin.

Large well maintained campground. Our site was well shaded, level with good drainage, though a little close together. A large hillside field was a good place to walk our dog. Walking trails were average. Convenient to Louisville, Distillery tours, Bernheim Arboretum and Churchill Downs. Lots of things for kids to do. Friendly helpful staff. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Motorhome.

This was a very cool campground that appeared to be catered to families and children. There were a ton of family oriented amenities with Putt Putt Golf, nice pool, great playground area for kids with a very unique inflated bladder for kids to bounce on. They even had a nice Kamp K9 where the furry kids could romp and play after a long ride in the vehicle. The sites were tight and fairly close to one another. That is fine because this KOA park was more of a destination than a stopover park. Management could not be friendlier and the staff could not be more courteous. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We were here over Memorial Day Weekend. It was crowded, however we had a very nice spot. We pulled in and did not have to level at all. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

I would rate this as below average for a KO. The campground had a cramped feel with too many roads for the number of sites. Sufficient for an overnight stop, but a bit expensive for what it was. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects VKR discount for a pull-through, FHU site. On a positive note, the cable worked, electric was good, check-in staff were friendly. Very expensive for what it is. Very tight for a large motorhome. We are a big rig towing and were there for an overnight. I asked to make sure we wouldn't need to unhook and were assured we had "a very long site". The escort promptly lead us to make a immediate sharp right turn, despite the fact that we were parked against a curb to our right and a fence at the curve. We couldn't make the turn and had to unhook at a tight angle - which appeared to humor the staff since they were laughing while we unhooked. The area our site was in appeared to be nearly all residents/seasonals. The "very long site" may have measured long, but the functionally level section in the middle was barely adequate for a 40' motorhome and the toad would have stuck out in the road had we left it connected. It would not have been possible to pull out of the site with the toad attached due to the uphill right turn you had to make out of the site and the tight turns to get back to the exit. Tree branches in this area also need to be trimmed overhead. WiFi was unusable. We do not recommend this campground if you are a large motorhome. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Motorhome.

To start with I will say that the owners are very nice and were very willing to accommodate our requests for different sites upon arrival. The original sites were full hookup, but the sewer connection was 30 ft away from my trailer. The second problem was the electric pedestal was so close to the site that if I gave room for my slideout we couldn't use the awning on the other side because of a tree. I spoke with the lady at the front desk and she let us move a couple sites up. The campground was empty so its hard to judge what it would look like full. With that said I believe it would be BAD. Sites are every turned every direction and make no sense. Lots of them are packed so close your sewer is under the neighbors picnic table. The giant trampoline pillow was a hit with my kid and the playground was OK. The gate to the river area, and scenic Indian Cliffs was locked so we had to walk a good distance to see that part of the park. The weather was beautiful and warm so not sure why staff refused to open that part of the park. I would not go out of my way to stay here again, but if I was in the area and needed a place to stay this would do. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Travel Trailer.

It's a KOA. It's expensive. The sites are all gravel and it was definitely designed for a different era. Years ago we stayed here and it was a relatively rural area, now it is surrounded by subdivisions and golf-courses. The site layout is rather confusing as sites seem to be everywhere. That said, everything worked as it should and our site was relatively level. Owners were very friendly and put us on the best site available for our size rig. They have a nice fenced dog run which was a treat for our pups. If you need propane, do not fill up here. I paid almost three times what it normally costs me. Had I known a fillup was going to cost me $120 I would have gone elsewhere. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Motorhome.

We prepaid and arrived after dark and closing. Park entrance is poorly lighted and the area to which we were assigned had no lighting whatsoever. We had to get out of the rig with lanterns to find the road. Adding to the confusion was the fact that someone else had taken the site we were assigned. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Motorhome.

Typical KOA. Tight spots, extra charges. Awning almost touched neighboring motorhome. Paid extra for my niece. I am almost done staying at all KOA's since I hate the extra fees they charge at the already high prices. This is a mostly gravel campground, so it was a bit dusty during the day. Pool was nice and big, nice area around the pool, and the camp store was nice and well stocked. Other than that. Stopped here on an overnight towards Nashville.

Good location but you can hear the interstate. Staff very nice. Overpriced for what you get also. We were told we would have to pay $66 for a premium site because that was all that was available. We opted to stay one less night so we could get a cheaper site, but the park was never full and there seemed to be plenty of lower priced sites available. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
