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

Typical KOA too small with tight spaces. - Mayonurse

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

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

This is a bare bones park, payment is made to a drop box. $10 off per night with Passport America membership number, even though not listed as a participant. Camp sites are fairly level and easy to access. Utilities are properly located and are good. Grass and gravel were well maintained. Excellent location for access to "The Land Between the Lakes" slightly south of I-24. - Teacher's Pet

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

Very quiet. Very restful. Nice place to camp close to city and shopping, great place to fish. - Johnjean

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

We called from the road - it was already dark out and raining. They had a site, number 5 available and would leave us late check in instructions. We arrived just after 10 pm, found the instructions as they said, we parked, and stepped out to find that the whole site was standing water on the whole right side - more than the length of our 31' motorhome. Before we knew the conditions, the dog was drenched and covered in mud. The road noise was impossibly loud. We could almost touch the RV to the right of us. We have never left a place before, but as soon as we hoisted the dog in thru the driver's door, we left. Never ever stopping here. Not worth it. - justusgirls

I am a recent retiree and decided to travel this great country. I am new to RVing and RV parks so this is my first post. We have a Good Sam membership and the book showed high marks for this Paducah park. As we entered several potholes shook our Class C and the nightmare started. The park is near a highway and trucks and sirens went by all night long. We entered office to be greeted by a senior gal and a young woman with a dog. I have allergies and did not appreciate being jumped on by this persons animal and to make matters worse the young lady did nothing about just laughed it off. I was given a site up front with full hook ups. The laundry had cobwebs on ceiling and fixtures and a good dusting is urgently needed. I did get a plastic duck at check out but I will investigate other parks in the area on my return trip. - Marine 4 Life

I have been a Good Sam member for 15 years so the high number in the book brought me here. I will contact Good Sam to see how they could give this place so high marks. The park is close to highway right near a car auction which is not the problem. I arrived to be greeted by 3 employees I think laughing and carrying on not professional in my opinion. I didn't stay long after I seen too many problems such as garbage piled up and a lot of junk out in the back. I did find a park in town that suited me better. The park could be good with a little attention. - TVA Worker

We stopped for a couple of days on our way elsewhere...there were only 3 spots taken out of 212....it's had to review when it's not busy but I would think that during the summer and weekends it could be very busy and hard to get around...some of the sites are short and close together, most are level and have some shade....our site was large, and a lot of shade and the services worked great....showers were clean but I like more hot water when showering but it was ok...we had AT&T Cell signal and used our hot spots for WiFi....picked up a few channels with our antenna....easy access off the parkway and a lot in the area to see.... - smoky40

I imagine this would be a fun place for a family that is going to spend the day at the lake and then sit around in the evenings letting the kids run amok and get to know their VERY CLOSE in proximity neighbors. Fortunately when we were here this week, there were only 6 out of 200 sites occupied so we slept well. There were camp hosts but they never approached us.
It is laid out in a grid pattern with narrow roads and short parking pads making it difficult to back in even with our smaller trailer. The rest rooms were passable, the showers were not. Screen doors are warped so bugs and frogs were inside. Second Kentucky State park this year: they need to update. It was okay for an overnight but the gates were not locked and no security ever passed, making it unlikely we will stop again. - Hidden Barb

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

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

This campground is safe, clean and well maintained. Management is friendly and helpful. Level, roomy sites with full hook ups. Easy on & off highway. It had rained for days before and during our stay, so dog park was not accessible, but ample room to walk a dog. I would recommend this RV Park. - CJVJn1Doug

Arrived late, well after closing, in pouring rain, with no reservations. Victory RV park had a late check in option (would have given it 10 out of 10 if they had said that on their voicemail when I called after hours). It was an easy system to use, chose a site. Very quiet, no road noise, easy to find (though it's off the beaten path), and very pretty. Bullfrogs and birds were the only sounds we heard. Sites were gravel and pull thru, electric service was steady. We were on the road by 10 am so not much opportunity to enjoy it. But, next time I am on I-24 and need a place to stay, this is it. - justusgirls

Booked this as an overnight stay on trip south. Turns out we were the only people here. Place was clean and seemed in good repair. The campground office was closed so cannot speak to those amenities. No issues at all with water or power. Only issue was with GPS directions in getting here. If your GPS tells you to turn left after you are on Shemwell Lane, do not do that. The RV park is straight ahead. The sign is very small and easy to miss especially in the dark when raining. Racetrack was not in use while we were here. - STBRetired
