This KOA is good for an overnight stay but not much beyond that. Dirt roads, unlevel, gravel sites are the norm. The road going to the park south of Louisville is always very busy. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here many times before. They have recently raised the nightly rate. ($12 more for pull-thru vs back-in) There have been improvements made to the office but our site was as far away from the office/restrooms as possible even when asking for close to office or bath house. Many campers were in this far-away area, I assume since the rate is less. Site was fairly level. Other than the entry grass area, sites were weeds. Very disappointed with this visit. Close to friends we were visiting so will probably stay here again. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Motorhome.

Very nice KOA. Can be pricey if you stay in a premium site which we did but with the patio, wrought iron table and chairs, and glider, its pretty neat. Nice Pool area. Plenty of things for kids. Easy drive into Louisville to visit Churchill Downs. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Motorhome.

I am not a KOA fan, but this park is convenient, clean, spacious (for a KOA), friendly, and has flat sites. The amenities are nice. The staff was very friendly. The only complaint is that we heard planes all night. I live within 7 miles of an airport and am on a flight path, so I'm used to the noise. The planes did not make this park a deal breaker but I want it to be known. I would stay here again. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Motorhome.

This campground to us was MUCH better than portrayed by others on this site. Yes, the pool is still closed. We don't use pools anyway. They gave a substantial discount due to this fact. That said, I feel this is a beautiful campground, with plenty of sites with lots of space. We had a deluxe patio site and it was huge, scenic, and inviting to be in. I'm afraid that people's anger about pool closure prompted some of the negative vibes in previous reviews. Staff went out of their way to be helpful. Park is clean, well maintained and in my opinion, has been unfairly maligned by others. We would be happy to return again. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The pool was closed for repair so we got a 10% discount. Sites were large, nice playground for the kids. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The interior roads and camp sites are gravel. Sites are extremely close together. The roadways are confusing (not well marked) and very tight. They do not seem to enforce the park rules. They do NOT monitor sewer hook ups. A site two spaces away evidently had a sewer connection come loose, which allowed black water waste to spew toilet waste all over the site. I brought this to the staffs attention and they did get it cleaned up promptly.

The swimming pool was closed for some reason. So, they did provide a slight discount.

This would NOT be my first choice if in the area again. Not a good value for the rate. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Motorhome.

Pool was closed and we were not told at time of reservation. Site was so small we could not have campfire. We had to step over neighbor's septic line to get to our truck. Hot tub was green. We love KOA just not this one. Terrible. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park - did not get the opportunity to join in festivities - sightseeing. Rate changed middle of stay resulting in a $2 increase. Roads clean and easy access. Liked the spaciousness of the sites. Staff friendly and courteous. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed at a premium site - concrete pad for metal tables/chairs only not worth the price. Campground OK. Some interior roads are paved but most gravel. Sites are gravel with some grass. Wi-Fi was slow but OK for email and FB only. Satellite access OK at our site. Nice children playground area. Do not pick up trash like most KOAs. 30 minute drive to downtown. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Motorhome.

I think this was an older park that was converted to a KOA at some point. The park encompasses a rather large area but the layout makes things somewhat tight in places. It looks like some sites in their "Overnite Row" may have been added to try to accommodate larger rigs. We actually had to drive through an unoccupied site (following their golf cart) to get into our pull-thru. If the park had been busy (it wasn't, even though it was close to the Memorial Day weekend), we would have had a difficult time parking. The interior roads were gravel and somewhat rutted, with several very sharp corners. I ended up walking around several times before I determined our path out (we have a larger motorhome, towing). The landscape is heavily treed which added to the maneuvering difficulty, as well as eliminated a satellite TV opportunity. There were a few perma-rigs present, which didn't improve the ambiance. WiFi was poor although VZW was strong. If it wasn't for the ease of making confirmed reservations with the KOA app, I probably would have looked elsewhere. We camped at Louisville South KOA in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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.
