We had a very nice 2 night stay. The sites are well spaced and are paved with a gravel patio area on most sites. The grounds were very clean and well maintained. The two camp host seem to do a great job keeping an eye on everything. Very nice fire rings with adjustable grates. The camp store was very minimally stocked, but they close at the end of October so that was understandable. The 18 hole mini golf was not fancy, but was well maintained. Shopping and Restaurants were only 15 minutes away. Would stay again. We camped at Big Bone Lick State Park in a Motorhome.

This state park was a delightful surprise as we were traveling through the area. The gentleman running the office was wonderfully helpful with information about the park and the surrounding area. As can be expected of most State Parks, the utilities at the site are only water and electric and there is no WiFi. Sprint phone service is virtually non existent. We loved the trails and the Bison herd and the historic nature of the Park. Would definitely stay here again when passing through. We camped at Big Bone Lick State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground. Very friendly staff. Pretty steep hills getting to campground. Need at least a 50ft of water hose to reach hookup. We camped at Big Bone Lick State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice but well used state park. The bathrooms need updating but they were clean. Very steep road getting to your site but once there the sites are very nicely spaced. From the interstate the road to the park is a little twisty and narrow but doable. Will stay again. We camped at Big Bone Lick State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great park! There are no sewer hookups, but aside from that it was quiet, there is a museum on site, the history of the area is great, and 25 minutes from Cinci. I only gave it a "9" because of the "state park" bathrooms that nearly always have bugs and are a bit well-used. But, having camped all over, one gets used to those. The kids got to go look at an onsite Bison herd and the trails are fun to walk. We camped at Big Bone Lick State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was a nice state park. Ample room on sites. Bath house was dated, but clean. Medium size pool proportionate to the size of the campground. Friendly staff. There were three different camp hosts for different sections of the campground. Cell service from Sprint was poor. Overall, we enjoyed our stay here. We camped here four nights. We would stay here again. We camped at Big Bone Lick State Park in a Motorhome.

All paved campground so that's nice. Basic state park, with pool, playground, and pond. A few things to do around the park, see the buffalo, hike some of the trails, and fish. Very quiet campground; we have stayed here several times. Most of the sites are wooded. No sewer, but they have water and electricity. We camped at Big Bone Lick State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park. Our site (#41) was the probably the most level lot we have ever had at any campground. Most camp sites were nicely spaced. Campground is located fairly close to the Cincinnati area, so there are plenty of things to do within 30 minutes away. Our only complaints about the campground is as follows: The grass at our campsite needed to be mowed (not real bad, it just needed to be mowed), our fire ring was FULL of ashes that we had to shovel out and put beside the fire ring, the dump station is not very convenient to get in and out of (had to circle back through the campground due to difficult turn), and for my husband and sons (who like to fish) this is not a good park for fishing. However, despite these complaints, we would stay at this park again when in the area. We camped at Big Bone Lick State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice and quiet at night. Had good laundry service. Swimming pool was open. Overall it was a good stay with some nice hiking trails. It was close to the Creation Museum. Taking the back roads we discovered the small town of Rabbit Hash. We camped at Big Bone Lick State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice park not too far from Cincinnati. Very quiet at night even on the 4th of July (maybe due to ban on campfires due to fire hazard). Make sure you have at least a 50' water hose, since water hookups are shared between sites. Mixture of very large sites to average size sites. Some sites are not level, although the grade is usually front to back rather than side to side. Be sure to check out the museum and learn about the park's importance in paleontology. We camped at Big Bone Lick State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park on top of a mountain. Getting our 40' rig up there and backed in required a little work but it worked. Just choose your site carefully if a big rig. Site was level but not all sites are. Has putt-putt in park, trails to walk and bison! Price high due to online reservation (they don't do phone reservation). You might be able to avoid the online fee by simply paying when you arrive if you want to risk it. We camped at Big Bone Lick State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed two nights in this park and really enjoyed it. The park is well kept and as with most parks in Kentucky very green! The hosts were very helpful and friendly. We will certainly return when going back that way. We camped at Big Bone Lick State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a great time. There were programs for the kids, which they enjoyed. The pool is small and deep (not great for little kids). The bathrooms were clean, the showers had good pressure and warm water. The park was very clean, but our site was sloped and even with our jacks we couldn't get level. Nice hike to see the buffalo and the small museum. Also, a hike to a fishing lake, a miniature golf course. Lots to do! We camped at Big Bone Lick State Park in a Motorhome.

The site we were on was tight for our fiver but was called a 43 ft. Luckily we bring extra hoses as the spigot was halfway in the woods. It was rather narrow, but the worst part was the side to side leveling was at least 6" off. It's a clean park with nice hosts and very quiet but then again it's only May. Wouldn't go back, but for small trailers it's ok. We camped at Big Bone Lick State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This place is only 15 minutes away from our house but is so nice we plan on making it a yearly thing. The programs offered for the kids by the naturalist are entertaining and informative. Pool is adequate size with handicap lift. Many shaded spots for hot KY summer days. Enough space for friends to camp next to each other and have privacy. Nice common area between spots where games of toss, tag and corn hole were played. Two very large common area fire rings with stone walled seats if you want to have a large get together. Highly recommend! We camped at Big Bone Lick State Park in a Travel Trailer.
