Nice campground. Very quiet, no playground. Has beautiful views of Lake Cumberland from every site, but no access except boat ramp (no swimming) and stairs at far end of campground. Water up, lots of trees and trash floating by shore, but some families swam off the steps anyway. Really good swimming spot not far at Pulaski County Park. Basically in downtown Somerset, great location. But, really steep hill to get to it, and if you meet someone else towing, narrow road. Would not go back just because of the hill and lack of good access to water for swimming. I have a 16 year old, 30 ft class A, and was not comfortable with the hill. One weird thing, the water and electric are at what I would consider the front of the site, in this instance, on the lake side. So, if I had backed in as expected, my door and awning would have faced the road, not the nice view. So I pulled in forward and used extensions. Believe most of the sites are like that. The dump is at the top of another steep hill. By the time you are at the dump, your vehicle is headed back downhill. I dumped at General Butler State Park, not far from there. $3, and totally flat. We camped at Waitsboro Campground COE in a Motorhome.

McDonalds on 27 has the best wifi. Can even get it in the parking lot. No plugs at tables inside, though.

Mostly lakefront, but not lake access sites. You gotta drive to a loop at the end of campground and turn around back towards gate in order to back into site. Sites mostly level. Dump station is the cockeyedest set up I ever seen. It's up a short steep hill which can only be approached from outside the gate. Most units must be parked slightly down hill in order to dump. Fairly decent CG once you get past the traffic flow and dump station set up. I would not recommend it for long trailers or 5th wheels. We in a 30-footer and it was near maximum turning length for the roads. We camped at Waitsboro Campground COE in a Travel Trailer.

There is a very steep, windy hill to go down to the campground. Be careful of boats coming up and the reverse on exiting. Most sites have at least a view of the lake. All sites are gravel with a fire ring and water and electric only. Some sites are up a steep hill by the shower house. This is also where the dump station is located. Large campers cannot get up the hill. The showers are old with timed water but clean. A button has to be pushed frequently to get the water to flow. Some visitors are very inconsiderate and leave their cars and boats on the road with little room for campers to get through to their spots. The host and volunteers are very nice. We camped at Waitsboro Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

If you are in a small camper or tent, this park will be OK . It's not for big rigs. We were not able to stay here because the turns were too tight and spots too small . The host was nice and called another campground on the lake; and we were able to get in. We camped at Waitsboro Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Lovely Corps of Engineers campground. It is a small campground but you have all the lovely features of a Corps park - waterfront, large spacious sites and great rates. We are able to use our Senior Pass therefore the rate is half price. Our site was gravel, almost level and was lake front. The host came around to check on us and gave us our information. Very friendly and helpful. Our Verizon cell phone had good reception but no TV reception from either satellite or antennae. That is OK because we would rather enjoy the lovely trees. The signage on US 27 is very small and we missed it the first time so be very cautious. The entrance hill is very steep but not long in length. The interior road is one way and can be a little tricky at the end to make the turn but it is doable with our 39' motorhome. We are always thankful to be able to find a Corp park along our travel route. We would come back here if we were in the area. We camped at Waitsboro Campground COE in a Motorhome.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Big rig owners beware. Very difficult interior road was 1 way in and out. Turn around at the end of the interior road couldn't be made by our 45 foot motorhome. We had to back up a long way to reach our site. Signage on US 27 is non-existant. Car show held in nearby downtown Somerset during various days of the summer is terrific. We camped at Waitsboro Campground COE in a Motorhome.
