They have a fenced in clean dog park. The playground has a lot to do. The pool is big. - Stacie C

Gravel roads and sites. Many sites not level and have mud. Sites near back of KOA very close together. Made reservations way ahead of time and was placed in a site too small for our motorhome. Took two visits to the office to facilitate a site change. Dog park nice but small. Good facilities for kids (including swimming pool). - C&C Maxson

Good access to Louisville. Interior roads pretty poor - maybe because of recent heavy rains? Seemed to be a high number of long-termers, which gave areas of the park a very crowded feel. We felt the park wasn't worth the cost, even though we knew that going in. We might feel different if we had kids. - RDABBA

This is a nice county park just a few miles from town. I was in the area to visit an old friend so the location was perfect. Facilities are older, but not run down, it looks like they do their best to keep the place up. The campground is small with a limited amount of camping pads. I got the impression that it is mostly used by locals for weekend camping. - Mark Ford

We stayed in this lovely little campground for a week and had a peaceful, relaxing stay. The park managers were hard working, very helpful and accommodating. The sounds of the waterfall over the dam and geese calling to each other was more than we expected on this trip but coupled with the Kentucky hospitality of our hosts at the park, by far one of our greatest trips. This Michigan family is impressed! Try it! You will like it! - Georgeann

I-65 is only about 5 miles from the campground. This is a small, very nice campground with ten sites off a small parking lot. The sites have a small concrete pad which was sufficient size for our 36' fifth wheel, water and 30 amp electric. They back up to the Shelbyville Lake which appears to be a pretty nice fishing lake. - schoolmarm

Don't follow the GPS, it will try to take you through a subdivision. Follow the brown signs once you get into town; they take you straight to it. The interior road was narrow with speed bumps, so while big rigs could get in there, it wasn't the easiest to navigate. It was super muddy, and made for difficult entry/exit of the rv. There was a very 'nature' smell everywhere - okay, it smelled like dog poop. Our rig was too big to use the dump station; couldn't make the curve into the pullout. - DaBlairs

We were in site 12 and it was spacious and very close to a nice playground, great for our toddlers and our space was big enough to throw frisbee to our two medium size dogs. Nice neighbors. Only rating at 9 because when it rained and it got super muddy but I guess campground can't keep the rain away. - TravelingSnook

Want a quiet nights sleep? Look no further. Spacious Campsites. Water and elec. wish there was sewer hookup but thats ok $22 / night is a good price. Boating available.
clean showers/restrooms/good hot water and so glad they clean it well and don't disguise smells with artificial and toxic perfumed plug ins etc.
Kentucky people are some of the friendliest that you will find in the country! We would stay at this park again! - WVrvers

Such a beautiful, well-kept park. The only issue is lack of connectivity. The sites all appear pretty level and are quite spacious. It was a convenient base for visiting both Louisville and Lexington. - CnCOntheGo

Excellent campground! The whole place was very clean and well taken care of. After walking the dog around the entire campground looking at different sites, I feel this site is the best. All of the sites look good but when I go camping I try to get as far away from people as possible. Secluded, level, VERY easy to back in, plenty of room around the site with only a neighbor on one side and they are far away, site is toward the end of a turn around but there are only 6 sites in the entire loop. We would definitely stay here again and try to get site 41. - B and V travels

Was empty first two days but was almost full for the weekend. I was in site 32, a 50 amp pull-through site that was pretty level. Site was spacious. Only issue was cell coverage. Verizon coverage was very weak and could not get internet connection (weak 1x). AT&T coverage sends better from what I heard. - Randy & Sharon

We are frequent visitors to this state park. Very nice campground, great hiking trails and great view of the Ohio river. This weekend we were very disappointed by, probably a previous camper, who let their dog do it's business and failed to pick up the Marmaduke sized piles. Made for a nasty camp site in the 90 degree sun. Come on fellow campers, have some class and respect the campers who pull in to your spot when you leave. We will be back. Hopefully whoever stayed in this spot before us will not. - Paulski

We have really enjoyed our stay at Charlestown State Park. This campground is well laid out with an easy drive in and very private with lots of night stars and the sounds of silence. Most of the sites on the passenger side (outside) seem to be at the perfect angle for an easy back in. A good portion of the driver's side sites are straight to the road, and would require a bit of finesse to back in a larger 5th wheel like ours. We stayed in one of the two loops with full hook ups. Shortly after you enter the park, there is a dual lane fresh water tank fill station for all the other sites with no water hookups. The sites are all paved and offer 30/50 amp service. The 15 miles of trails here are beckoning us to explore, so as soon as the rain stops we'll slip on the boots. The area itself has everything you need for supplies, groceries and laundry and Louisville is just a short drive away too. We will definitely be back and stay a bit longer. - Two Lanes of Freedom

What an awful place. Then again, this isn't a campground; it's basically a few spots in a parking lot that have hookups on the side for RVs. How they get away charging so much is beyond me. I guess most of the folks who use the sites particulate in events at the expo center, arena or the amusement park next door (which shares an entrance gate). The design of the hookups is atrocious as the water was on one side, the electric was about 50 feet away on the other side and the sewer was in the middle. The sewer was also encased with a metal plate - we needed a screw driver to pry it open. We had to park at a really strange angle to get everything hooked up - it will be a real nightmare hitching back up due to the angle we're at. There is only an attendant on duty who didn't seem to know much of anything except how to run the credit card. The office he worked in was a 6x6 box with no windows and filthy (like a mechanic's office). The adjacent rest rooms and showers were no better. This is also right behind Kentucky Kingdom amusement park so it was very noisy with music blaring. Also in the landing path for the airport, so constant planes flying overhead. We only came here because due to a huge hot rod rally in town next week, everything else was booked up. We could only stay 2 nights anyway, as this area will be cleared and we'll need to move to their dry camping area, where all the hot rodders will be. - cherylbrv

Used this park because of it's location in the Louisville area. It's really not an RV park. It is a large parking lot with hookups. Most don't have sewer but a few do. There are no amenities, only hookups. The parking lot is used as the midway during the state fair in August. Other times it's available for camping. Most campers are there for some kind of a function on the fair grounds. Would probably be a good location for the Derby. - vidcity

Been going there for the last ten years to work shows at the fairgrounds. The facilities are always filthy with little or no maintenance. This year was the worst. There was no, repeat no, water anywhere in the RV park at the Kentucky Exposition Center?'s RV park with which to re-fill our fresh water tank in the RV. Not only that, but the shower/restrooms at the RV park were such filthy swill holes that just stepping into them made me think I needed to burn the shoes I was wearing before stepping foot back into our RV. No way would I use the facilities. Therefore we were unable to shower for four days. Only able to wipe down with a damp paper towel to freshen up. We got a tad ripe in those four days. To add insult to injury RV parking at the Expo Center costs $50.00 a night!! To further cause aggravation for RV owners trying to stay there when the Expo Center's crews cleared the RV parking lot of snow they pushed the cold, white stuff into mountains over most all of the RV parking spots. I would add that the pork producers, the fish frying folks and the chicken frying folks, all of whom work in the sheds located in the RV lot, had no water either. This meant that they had no way to wash up after using the filthy restrooms and no way to wash pots and pans or grills they were using. I'd be surprised if none of the food patrons at the Expo Center didn't get deathly ill after eating there this last weekend. - Jim C.

The park does not look like the pictures seen on the web! The sites are just gravel thrown over grass and are NOT level. The whole place is rundown and a mess! Over priced for no amenities and it is rundown! RR tracks on the way to park scrapped our stabilizers! - Jolew

We stayed at this park for 1 month. Utilities are all good and Wifi is excellent. A friendly, helpful staff. Easy on and off of I-65. We were in site #50 with a 40 foot fifth wheel. We would stay again. - John Denny

After reading the negative reviews, I was hesitant about staying at Brooks mobile home and RV Park. After arriving I immediately wondered if the negative reviews were actually from people who have never stayed here. We stayed for two days it was very clean and kid friendly. I will happily stay here again when I'm in the area. Don't be misguided by negative reviews. Stay there and find out for yourself, you won't be disappointed. - TheBestest1

You're escorted to your site - because the park is so tight that you need it! 37' motorhome and when we opened our slides we had to be careful as they almost touched the next door RV. Had to move picnic table to open the slides. Loud trains all night at the edge of the park, and planes land/take off overhead. On a positive note, the park is within minutes of Louisville and the staff is friendly. The location is the only reason this park is able to fill up - and the only reason I'd stay here again. - Tiara38

This is a very crowded park and one we will probably not return to unless it is for a one day stay. We were escorted to our site. There is a convenience store and gas station onsite which is handy. You are close to many attractions. Our Dish satellite and Verizon worked well. - rolling homeless

Access is easy, but within the park roads are narrow and turns are tight. Still, we got in and out with our 42-foot rig. The sites are closer together than we like. With slides extended on our unit and that one next to us there were about two feet between us. The store is very well stocked with a wide variety of items, especially drinks. Staff is pleasant and helpful. Gasoline, diesel, and LP available in the park.
Access to downtown Louisville from the park is less than 10 minutes via a non-toll bridge on U.S. 31. - SkyPilot49

Park is right across the street from Church Hill Downs. Kind of tight for a 40' 5'er but fit-had to back in from the street though. Not a bad neighborhood. We stayed there almost 2 weeks for the fair. Owner is very friendly and helpful. Was quiet at night. Would stay there again. - reviewer3

We didn't actually stay here, but we pulled in and looked around. Posting this review since I've seen others ask about it. Trackside is directly behind Churchill Downs, and the lady we spoke to on the phone was quite friendly. Those are the good things. On the other hand, it was basically someone's backyard with some older hookups, in what appeared to be a somewhat sketchy area. It was fenced in, though. The handle on our water hookup was broken, and the sewer hookup was under a broken piece of cinderblock. We decided to leave, but it might be okay for a couple days if you're looking for the closest possible park to Churchill Downs. It was tough backing our 31' in from the street, and around the back of the garage. - NH Camper

Nastiest manager you'll ever meet. Trash everywhere. Dangerously exposed wires and sharp rusty pipes coming out of the ground in play areas that said manager refuses to remove. Floods every time it rains. Mud and dead grass everywhere. All concrete pads are crumbling. It is a stone's throw from 2 interstates which are VERY LOUD. Water is off more than it is on sometimes. The office is closed more than it is open and did I say the nastiest manager you'll ever meet? Go somewhere else. - HoosierRV

This is a mobile home park that is converting some spaces to RV. The site conversions are not exactly RV friendly. Narrow concrete strips for the wheels, the jacks are on soft ground and the sewer is located under the RV. The streets have many speed bumps, many of the remaining mobiles homes should be removed and it is very noisy. There is constant noise from I-65, train horns several times a day and night, and the occasional plane traffic; not a peaceful location. We stayed here for 3 months while working for Amazon; the cost of the site was paid for by Amazon. This may develop into an acceptable RV park in a few years but it will always be noisy. The park is on the northern outskirts of Clarksville so shopping and other services are a few miles away.
The sites are level with broken concrete patios and grass areas. No tables or fire rings. 50 amp electrical.
The water is good quality city service but use a filter. The pressure fluctuates, especially in the morning.
There is no park provided cable or wifi. Service may be obtained from Time Warner. Typical OTA channels.
There is no laundry, pool, showers, park activities, etc. The staff is helpful, when asked, but otherwise they are rarely seen.
A mailbox can be purchased from USPS. UPS and FedEx deliver here, but have difficulties locating Lakeview Dr.
We will probably not be stay again as we have no desire to work for Jeffersonville Amazon (SDF8) again. - Wiyndog
