Excellent State Park. Large open sites, gravel sites with picnic areas, each site has picnic tables and fire rings. All sites are W/E only with dump station. No wifi, very little Verizon coverage, appeared AT&T had better coverage. Didn't use bathhouses but looked very nice and updated stalls and shower stalls. Campground sold firewood and ice. Campground host was very nice and would deliver firewood. No views of the lake but ramps are within a short drive. There were hiking trails but due to rain we weren't able to access. Very easy drive from Louisville. We camped at Taylorsville Lake State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very clean and well kept. The tent camping sites are tucked away in the woods and very private. I highly recommend for tent camping. The horse camping area is all pull-through spots with water and electric and shade trees on each space with a fire ring. The whole grounds are fairly flat and level making walking or biking around the block a lot easier. If you want a challenge there are loads of trails, some that go directly to the lake. The standard RV spots are medium/large size and mostly typical back in with shade behind you. Not a one isn't level. We got lucky and were able to stay in one of the horse camping spots. If it rains, they don't allow horses for several days and open these larger spaces up to RVs and tents. They are off to themselves in the back of the campground and offer a more secluded feeling. Gravel and very level, all of them. There is a nice modern playground easily accessible from most anywhere in the park. The restrooms are maintained regularly and very clean. The boat ramp is just down the lane. This is close to Bourbon country and the KY Bourbon Trail with loads of distilleries to tour within 45-60 minutes. Great, clean park. If this place had a pool and more spaces it would be an easy 9.5 - 10. We camped at Taylorsville Lake State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is nicely set up with flat land and spacious sites. However, there was a lot of rain the first night and our site (#30) was flooded. That was okay, we could deal with that. The deal breaker for us was the loudness and absence of ANY park ranger or surveillance! I noticed there was no "quiet time" signs posted in the park, but little did I know that this campground is a place where people can drink and blast music all night long! My 14-year-old daughter was subjected to inappropriate behavior and drunken conversations that made me wish we would have stayed home! I've called the park to ask if they enforce any quiet time rules and have not received a phone call. Unless you want to drink and party all night, this is not a family family campground.

Stayed there one night on a longer trip. Park is a little out-of-the-way for a one night stay. Nice campground. Not many shaded sites. Better for a longer stay. Probably would not stay there again. We camped at Taylorsville Lake State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Very clean park with spacious sites. Friendly staff, very helpful if needed. Ice and wood delivered to site if needed. Electrical problems near back of park. A lot of the electric outlets, 30 amp, were melted. My surge protector which has a readout read anywhere from 108 volts to 120. Small pea gravel on sites. Nice bathhouse and playground. Very nice campground as far as State Parks go. We camped at Taylorsville Lake State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a great State Park. Compared just to other state parks, it would be rated higher. The sites are large, the park is beautifully kept, and the bath house is excellent. The hiking and horse trails are fabulous. We will stay here again. We camped at Taylorsville Lake State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Great park access roads are paved and the grounds are kept up. lots of areas to walk and nice surrounding woods. Not a lot of shade on the rv sites. The laundry is clean. The showerhouses have gone down some not sure why we have camped her for years and they have always been clean, but they are not now. Spoke to the admimistration about this and was told they would handle it. Staff is friendly and other than the showerhouses the park is very nice. We stayed here for two weeks in a fifth wheel.

Went to this park expecting to have lake access and use of bike trails but was disappointed in both. Lake is for boats only so bring your own or plan to drive 5 miles to rent one. The bike trails turned out to be narrow horse paths that mountain bikes might be able to negotiate but not my cruiser. Stuck to riding on the main roads and it was OK but not what we expected. The laundry and shower facilities were clean and easily accessible. Everyone there was very pleasant but most sites are not shaded so if you want shade ask for it specifically. There are some kid friendly play grounds. This is primarily for boaters and horses despite what the state web site says so beware before you plan to go here.

This large state park overlooking the man-made Taylorsville Lake is a delightful place to stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The campground is set back several miles from the highway and its sites are large and well-spaced. The park offers a number of horseback and hiking trails, plus boating access to the lake. While well away from populated areas, the park is still convenient to Louisville, Lexington and Bourbon Trail sites. I was able to receive signals from several over the air TV stations. Only a weak wireless connection was available at my site, which was described to me as one of the best for internet access in the park.

This campground is out in the middle of nowhere but it is a very nice campground. The sites are all large and spaced out nicely!! The bathhouses were very clean and modern!! No swimming area in the park, so unless you have a boat, you cannot go swimming. Other than that, nice campground!! We camped at Taylorsville Lake State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful campground, very clean and well maintained, wide campsites and wide spaces between campsites, easy in and out even for big rigs. Not a lot of shade (many trees are young). Lots of trails and wildlife viewing. Highly recommend this campground! We camped at Taylorsville Lake State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed on the pull through site #40. Everything was "as advertised" Park was well maintained and offered many trails and equestrian camping as well. Site was nice and level. We would stay here again. We camped at Taylorsville Lake State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. Have stayed here several times and it is always clean. Most of the sites are shady and have grass. Lots of wildlife to see. No cell service or Wi-Fi. We camped at Taylorsville Lake State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Most sites are shorter then what they say on the website. Can not put a camper and boat on most of the site. They want you to put your boat in boat parking which is way across the campground. If you have a expensive boat I wouldn't keep it over there! We camped at Taylorsville Lake State Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was my family's first trip to this campground and we truly enjoyed it. There is a nice playground for the kids. The campground is very quiet and extremely clean. Sites are very spacious, plenty of room in between sites. This is a no frills campground. No pool, and no view of the lake, but still a very nice campground. We will return.
