Great place on the Ohio river our site had 50amp we had to have the front of the RV to the river which was good as the door and and windows opened on to a large area with good views of the river.
we arrived late but the owners came out and helped get the RV on the site, this is a very nice place on the river with good fishing for Carp and Catfish.
It was incredibly peaceful here with only the noise of the water, the passing barges and the coyotes in the nearby woods.
we will come back next time we come this way. - Hilary & Tony

Nice park with riverfront sites on the Ohio River. We stayed for 1 week. We enjoyed watching the tugs and barges going up and down the river. We had nice weather, but it seemed quite breezy most times. Our site was under a security light so very bright at night. Try to avoid a site under the 2 or 3 lights. Riverfront utilities are side by side connections so you will have a close neighbor. - User2260

Had a campsite right on the Ohio River which was kind of cool. We watched the barges go by. That is the good. Fair amount of seasonals that pretty much keep to themselves. This place floods about every Spring and this year was worse than normal. They were still recovering. Very sandy sites. Bathhouse was so far away most campers either didn't use it (us) or drove up to it. Not close to anything. Paducah is 30 minutes away and a cool place to be on a Sat. night. Probably wouldn't stay here again but if want to just hang around a campsite and watch the barges or maybe do some fishing, this would be just fine. Quiet. - welch

The owners of this KOA are some of the nicest people we've met on our journeys. They are so friendly and treat everyone like lifelong friends. The campground is quiet and clean and just all around beautiful. There was a bronze trophy in the general store that was given to the owners for 40 years of service for KOA. That was given to them 3 years ago. These wonderful people have been doing this for a super long time and you can tell they still love it. That's impressive. - Slingshotrentals

Older KOA that is currently "For Sale". Needs a little work. Very nice couple running the office, very friendly and helpful. Sites are very close together, and park is a little confusing to navigate without a guide. (Not sure what was a road, and what was a "site".) Getting in our spot was a little difficult as we had to dodge trees and bushes. Tree branches at the entrance could use a trim, as well as some of the interior tree branches. Roads were mostly crushed rock/stone, and we "barely" fit. Site was pretty level and utilities were easy to get to. Did not use any of the facilities as we were self contained. Close to the main interstate, but far enough away that you couldn't hear road noise. Only stayed one night (just passing through). - usamacdonald2

My husband and I stayed in our motorhome two nights at this location to attend the National Quilt Museum. The entrance to the campground was overgrown and this should have been our first indicator. The entrance/driveway/road is single lane only. The grass throughout the entire park needed to be mowed in the worst way, branches/limbs on shrubs and trees needed to be trimmed up in order for the motorhomes to pull in and out without scratches; dead limbs were lying on the ground; flowerbeds have seen their better days; tent sites were washed out; picnic tables rusty and need to be cleaned up and painted. Both the women and gentlemen restrooms were full of dried up bugs, cobwebs and dirt (this did not happen overnight). The store is not stocked, but I am not sure I would have bought anything due to expiration dates. Did not go to pool based on the upkeep of everything else. The "pond/lake" is full of scum; did not set outside due to mosquito and flies. The couple was nice but part of being in the hospitality business is having a clean campground. There is more work than the staff that was present could do. This place needs a lot of work in more ways than one. Lots of potential for this campground but worst KOA we have ever stayed. We will not return. - PhenT

Wonderful area to stop for a day or two if traveling. My wife and I were in town for a wedding so we weren't really at the park for long periods of time however when we were there everyone was very nice and willing to help if I had any issues. I would say 3/4 of the park are permanent residents and the only visitor sides would be spots 21-28 I believe they are all pull through gravel sites but all are very level. Anyhow, close to Kentucky Damn Lake, restaurants, interstates and full hook ups. Sites are a little narrow but wide enough to put slides out. We would return again if passing through for a break. - Dream Coach

We stayed here for two nights on our way to Nashville. The RV Park has about 1/3 seasonal sites, 1/3 long term and about 1/3 for overnighters. the Park is clean and neat. Wi-Fi only works in the main office or laundry room. Staff were very helpful in what to see and do in the area. Would stay here again if passing through this area. - JD1040

We stopped here just for the night. Rate is cash. If you use plastic, it's a dollar or two more. Our pull through site was nice & level. Nice lake to walk the dog around. Staff was friendly. Although we were just off the interstate, highway noises were not a problem. Easy on & off highway. Don't think I would use this as a destination campground but would definitely stay here again when passing through. Lots of full timers. - bgw5350

I did not know what to expect at this park because they do not make reservations. Six big rigs came in together to watch the eclipse. We found the park to be clean and pleasant. There were a few longer term renters but no issues there. Nice pads; easy parking. Great hiking/biking trail starts at edge of park. - Couch9748

The name of this park was changed to "Tween the Lakes Campground". There isn't a sign at the road, but it is the first road South of the interstate behind the restaurant. This park has made several changes from when we stopped two years ago. The roads have new gravel and most of the long term trailers are gone. There are new tables and fire rings at each site. It is self pay and you chose the site you want. Each site is full hook-ups and there are not any restrooms. Most sites are pull through concrete pads, long enough for the motorhome and toad. Wifi is very good. Very good for a over night stop. We will stay here again. - iboat2

This is a good stop over for one night. The hook ups are at the rear so you may need extra hoses. The cable is quite fuzzy, but the wi-fi is very good. The site was long enough to stay hooked up. - Al and Anne-Marie

This is a very large and spacious campground conveniently located by Kentucky Dam Village. Restrooms are average and a little run down, but adequate. Spaces are large and some are shaded. Hookups are very far from the sites but the campground is very relaxed about putting your camper where you need to in order to hook up. If you are a bird watcher, there is great variety here. It's a quiet, peaceful place to relax. - JMills

This is a older campground that hasn't kept up with changing trends in RVing. Electric and Water hookups were a stretch to get to. We backed up almost to the end of the pad so the electric would connect. Electric held 30 amp service.
Before I go on, we stayed on a holiday weekend and the place was overrun. My guess is that under normal non-holiday times the park is large and roomy.
With the crowd, I have to give the staff a pass on the cleanliness of the bathhouses.
They are still old and in need of refurbishment.
Just driving in and out of the park was challenging with bikes and all golf carts.
Not for us. Won't be back. - Melbroo

Showers and restrooms were not open, which was not disclosed to us when we checked in. Had to try multiple sites before finding one with both working water and electric. Site was nice and level. They were very nice folks and when we asked about check-out time pretty much said whenever as there was no one there. - Gail K

Have stayed here before passing through town. Park has been under new ownership for 4 years, new owners have kept it about the same. Clean place to stay, with good access to the old waterfront district. Staff are friendly, there is some highway noise if that's a problem for you. All services work good. - Randoni

We have stayed here before & will stay here again. We like Paducah (used to stay at the Holiday Inn before we got our RV). It is a convenient stopping point between the Chicago area & Nashville. The owners & staff are friendly & helpful. This time we stayed just before the solar eclipse & they were packed. Because we have stayed before we were given an overflow space by the barn. It actually was kind of nice. We still had full hook up including cable, only thing we were missing was grass by our site for the dogs. Fortunately they have a beautiful dog park. It is large with plush grass, a gazebo & a park bench under a nice shade tree. It is by far the nicest dog park I have ever encountered. They also have a very nice pool. Each site gets its own garbage can. They have a laundry, too. Satellite was easy to pick up. - Connie's Co-Owner

Many open spaces here but they put us in the front row for a 4 day stay. Front row is 60 feet from a busy highway. Park is dusty at times, and lots of seasonal or permanent residents here. No noise from them, just the cars/trucks on the road. - Mr. Camper

We camped here in a heat wave and their 30 amp was terrific. There are shade trees and spaces are large. It is close to Kentucky Lake with a swimming beach. We would stay here again, but no need to pay $7.50 for reservations. There seem to be plenty of spaces open. - dd2some

Nice campground for overnight or to use as a base for local day trips. We came in after 5 and used the night registration. Left before 9 in the morning and never saw a park representative. Campground was clean and generally well maintained. - Bob F

We camped here in a tent with two dogs. We stopped here on our way to Colorado from Florida. The campground was very shaded, however the bathrooms left much to be desired. The showers were dirty and the bathrooms were filled with bugs both dead and alive. This campground was conveniently located off of I-24, but you did not hear any highway noise. Would have received a higher rating were it not for the bathrooms. - bocabasset

Small campground on Lake Barkley in the trees. A little rough around the edges but had lots of beautiful birds. The hosts were very nice but the computer took an extremely long time to register us. As we began showering at 8AM, the cleaning woman came in, plugged in her religious country music and began cleaning. Each sink she rinsed, each toilet she flushed, resulted in a change in water temperature and pressure. Hey COE, it is not okay to scald your patrons! Here's a novel idea - schedule a time for cleaning the restrooms so there's no conflict. Here's another - install regulators on the showers. The bath house appears old and has had many repairs but everything worked. We camped here with friends. The lawn between our sites and the lake had very deep ruts from vehicles being driven on the wet ground. One of our sites was impossible to level in. About half the sites would present a leveling challenge. Smaller campers would do better here. Sites 23-26 are on a loop and more private. Each site had two tables, one conveniently near the fire pit. No trash cans in camping area, you must take it to the dumpster by the dump station. - L. Allen

Very small COE park, busy on weekends with locals but quiet during week. Wonderfully friendly and helpful workcampers/staff. Rate is with Senior Pass. Nice gravel sites, most with lake front access, good if you have boat. Stable electric, good water pressure. All sites accommodate small to medium size tents, trailers and RVs. Park is not really for big rigs. Only a couple sites fit big rigs and you must be very careful backing into sites due to large ditches on either side of the narrow main road. Don't believe what Reserve America says about the site length: call and talk to the park personnel directly. You need to be part mountain goat to use a couple of the pull through sites. Swimming area is mucky, needs sand in beach area and is full of goose droppings. Small playground for kids but nothing else. Too many trees for satellite. Bathrooms/showers older but clean. Sign posted says: “Please keep doors closed to keep out snakes.” OOOWWW!!! - paularonson

We camped here in site #6 in a 32ft TT. The site has a beautiful view of the lake. The camp site is very level on a chip gravel surface. The camp site is rather tricky getting into due to the narrow camp drive. Some of the other spots looked very hard to get into some big campers might have some trouble. The bathrooms were very clean but need some shelves in the bath stalls so you can set shower stuff on. Beach is yucky, so you probably want to go to the Kentucky Dam's beach to swim. There isn't a whole lot to do for younger kids the campground has a slide and another child's playground toy. (Manual merry go round.) Dumping can be a pain as you have to make a circle to get back around to the dump station, but the dump station looks new. This is a great campground if your bringing your boat because it has two boat ramps and extra parking but that parking is a short distance from the camp sites. Nice campground for people without children or children that have enough patience to sit and fish. PS: Fishing from the bank was great. - kwnd623

Pretty low-key out of the way campground. Not much to do in area, but this was just an overnight stop for us. Roads from interstate were good, but a little tight. Nice owners. - Eagles Fan

This is a difficult park to review. You can tell that the owners are RVers and know what is important but they have to work with what they have. Pros- The owners are committed to a good clean park. Good power and water pressure. Level well maintained sites. Quiet while we were there (there is a racetrack very close). Cons - a bit of a drive from anything (interstate, restaurants, etc.), dusty gravel roads, not much space between sites, owner stated 50 amp could not handle 3 a/c running. - PositiveOutlook

This is a quiet, family owned park located just a few minutes from Paducah, KY. All sites are pull through, and all hook ups were easy to reach. All services worked well. The sites are sunny with newly trees planted, picnic tables and fire rings. It is not a resort by any means, but will provide a nice stopover for travelers, or pleasant family time for weekend campers. We had good reception our satellite dish and on ATT cellular. - OH2SD
