10 Parks near Vine Grove, Kentucky
Jun 2012 - $15.00
This lovely park is a hidden jewel convenient to Ft Bragg. Sites are shaded with picnic tables available. The bathroom facilities are clean and new. The park is near a stream and is part of a public recreation complex that hosts baseball, soccer and other community events. There are active railroad tracks bordering the site and trains do roll through at night with horn but it didn't bother us. You pick your site and pay on the honor system at the city hall around the corner from the campground. The city hall has a huge parking lot. While we were here there was a family reunion and they had 40' and 35' Class A rigs that fit fine. There are walking trails and you are close to a gas station and the downtown if you need to walk to get some supplies. A WalMart is 10 minutes away. - BarbaraJohnson

After reading the reviews for this park, I decided to update it. I have been at this park for a bit over two months. When I pulled in, I was a bit worried about it. It is a spot in a trailer park set aside for RVs. There were 4 other campers in the area when I pulled in. It is obvious that most of the people in the campground are there for what I call long term (over 2 months). After talking to the staff, all of my worries went away. They are very helpful and courteous. I have not experienced a problem in the electric, water or sewer. There was an evening that I came back and there was a crew working on the water pipes, I asked how long it would take, and they told me that they should be done in an hour or so. (Half an hour later I had water). There is no propane service on the campground: less than two miles north on US 31W there is a propane filling station. There is a grocery store within walking distance (less than half a mile), though I would recommend on driving to it, since it is a highway. There are probably nicer-looking RV Parks within an hour that offer more services/amenities, but there are none that are closer to historic FT Knox than this one. This one is also right off of US 31W, which makes it easy access to fellow travelers, and to folks working in the area for a short amount of time. I am leaving the area in a couple of weeks and look forward to returning to this campground when I come back. - jw117

This park has "slum" written all over it. There were numerous trailer homes parked in the RV area - including some that were rusting pretty bad. We washed a load of clothes in our rig and the sewer backed up. - 2Bucks

This is a older Mobile Home park with about 6 full hookup sites. There are a few more sites but they don't have hookups. The RV section is separate from the mobile homes. Sites are not numbered and it was hard to find the water and electric hookups. Some sites need an extension for the electric cord. There are no restrooms/showers. There is a laundry that is very inexpensive. Grass hadn't been mowed for some time. Manager advised that they were going to fix up the RV section. It's very obvious that this is not really an RV Park! They offer $15 a night to Passport and Escapee members. All others are charged $30. I would never consider paying $30 for this park. $15 was actually too much for this one. - Montana RVer

This park is not on the Fort Knox military post, but it isn't far away. This was my second stay at this CG. The last was a few years ago. Wi-Fi still iffy depending on how far from the office and how many RVs are between you and there. You can sit in the rec building and use a laptop if you need strong Wi-Fi. Cell service is also sketchy. I had to go outside the RV to get one bar. Utilities were good. There is a mixture of concrete and gravel sites. Most are level. Not all of them will allow for satellite reception due to trees. The rec building is nice, is in the middle of the park, and contains laundry, satellite TV, and a book/movie sharing library. I think laundry was a buck per load. There is a stocked lake next to the park. The staff was friendly and helpful. Only the W/E sites are reservable. They offer a discount for Golden Age/Access card holders which I used. - RLM

A great camping spot for military eligible folks! There's a stocked fishing lake a short walk away too. I didn't see any boats or a boat ramp. As others mentioned, wifi & phone service are real spotty. We mostly had 1 bar or no service with ATT and Verizon was about 2 bars at best. Many of the 50Amp sites are good for satellite but most of the 30Amp sites are deep in the trees. You can only reserve the 30Amp W/E only sites but you can take a 50Amp full hookup if available when you get there. They still require you to give them your Social Security number when checking in which really irritates me. The Army is so slow moving into the 21st century! We had a long pull thru full hookup which was nicely spaced from our neighbors and easy in/out. Three sites were fully paved and the rest are gravel. Most sites are big rig suitable too. Trees needed trimming going into the 30Amp W/E area but those sites would take any size rig too. There's a camp host for after hours support. - Danno

We stayed here six nights and will stay here again. Only down side (some will say up side) is there is no cell service at all and the internet service is very iffy and slow when it does work. Were able to get a few cable channels; don't know about sat TV. The laundry and restroom/shower facilities were the best we have seen anywhere. The sites are large and clean. There is a creek and a lake on site and fishing available if you have a permit. Staff was very helpful. Campground is not on Ft Knox but is military only. About six miles to the Fort and 20 to Elizabethtown. We also went to Bardstown and Glendale; scenic areas especially with the fall colors. There are also a number of distilleries within reasonable driving distance. Would be a 10+ if our phones worked. - Delbert

This is a wonderful campground. Most of the spaces here are gravel but there are a few cement pad spots also. All very level. Staff and camp hosts very friendly and helpful. There is a small lake at the back of the park for fishing. No swimming is allowed in the lake. Easy access into the park and big rig friendly. The restrooms and laundry room are modern and very, very clean. There is also a room in the facility for meetings, dining, etc. that has a refrigerator, TV and book/movie exchange. I would definitely stay here again. - Bubzug

Great place to relax. VERY quiet, no planes, trains, or highways. Wooded sites with lots of shade, lots of pine needles on your rig too. Trees can make maneuvering a little tricky. The fishing in Otter Creek is great. Lots of trout! Excellent swimming hole too! Shower and toilets were very old with lots of bugs and spiders. Would rate higher, but no site sewer hookups. Had to move rig to dump site every few days. Electric was solid till weather turned bad, then started having brown-outs. Staff were very friendly. Golf carts are allowed. Gravel sites are fairly level, but roads need repaving. This campground was built long before the big Class A motorhomes. Still, my wife, kids, and I can't wait to go back! Great value for your dollar. - mjngerti

We are glad Otter Creek has now re-opened several sections for camping. Both RV and tent camping sites are well groomed and the on-site hosts are friendly and helpful. Electric sites are mostly located in shady, wooded areas. This is a good hiking area--trails thread along the creek and beside the Ohio River. Horse and biking trails are also available. A well-provisioned YMCA camp is located within the park. Our only complaint is about the entrance gate - the newly rebuilt entrance has a very narrow curbed lane that's such a tight fit we weren't sure our medium-size RV was going to fit through. No reason at all to build these curbs so close together! Nearby to Louisville and easy to get to via Route 31. - Flying Mantis

This park is a local gem to the Louisville area. It has been closed for several years due to budget cuts by the City of Louisville but reopened under the management of Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife sometime last year. I've been camping in this park for over 25 years and this was my first visit back in probably 10. Amazingly, it looks almost exactly the same as when I left. The management has been putting a lot of work into this campground. First, I noticed that all of the electric sites now have a dual 50/30 amp pedestal. Many of the water hookups have been replaced. I did not get a count of sites as many of the previous water/electric sites were supposedly abandoned due to deterioration of the electrical service. In reality, it wasn't that good when I was there 10 years ago. However, they are putting in new water in that area and they may install new electric, I did not get to talk with anyone in charge. There is some construction of concrete pads of some sort going on and again, I'm not sure what that's all about. The beauty of this park is that it is very quiet and rustic. Many large trees and lots of shade. There are two separate pavilions. One has camping around it, so that would be great for a family get-together. Some sites are not very level, but most are no problem. There are three "buddy" sites that are off by themselves that would be great for a few friends camping together. They have electric and water hookups. There are no sewer sites, although there is a dual dump station that is easy to access. Lots of paved roads are great for bike riding and golf carts are allowed. The park is convenient to Brandenburg, KY which is a few miles down the road for shopping and a stones throw from Fort Knox, Radcliff and Elizabethtown. Louisville is about 20 miles away. The reason for my 6 rating is the park still needs some work. There are a LOT of trees and if you have a big rig it takes some care navigating around the park. There are several trees right beside the road that would be easy to clip if you're not careful. Also, some sites would be impossible to access with a larger rig. We have a 40' motorhome and it was slow going all the way into the park. Right at the entrance to the park is a guard shack with electric gates. The gates are very narrow. I cleared them with about a foot on each side to spare. Also, the road coming into the campground has many overhanging limbs. If you stay to the center of the road you'll be fine, but if you meet up with another rig exiting, someone better stop. Also, we were allowed to do a late checkout at 5:00 p.m. which was a nice bonus. I have lots of memories camping at this park with my children over the years in a multitude of different camping rigs. I was happy to see the park back and nearly as I remembered it from years ago. It's a nice place. - sixtires58

Nice, clean, and well maintained campground. Stayed there six nights! Great place to base for touring surrounding area or spend the night when passing through the area. WiFi was good most of the time. - Navretiree

This is a retired KOA with a Good Sam affiliation. With some TLC this park could be a KOA gem.
There are a few seasonal campers and for the most part they are respectable in their set ups. Lots of short term folks during our 3 day stay.
Buildings structures for facility buildings and pool were really gave a shabby appearance.
We had a problem with our electric. Had to move twice. Once for over night to a 30 amp site and then to a nice back in 50 Amp site.
Good water and sewer. Typical marginal wifi.
Quiet and convenient to area activities. Very easy access. Among the best for interstate road convenience. - wdw

Perfect overnight stay. Our site #5 was a little close to our neighbor but we really have no complaints for the price and full hook ups. Nice pool for the kids. I would stay again if traveling through. No need to unhook the toad if you don't need to. - pacevette

Well, we stayed here because it is about halfway between Atlanta, GA and Milwaukee, WI. It is not a bad place, there is a pond and pool, lots of open space for kids to play, walk dogs etc. There were a lot of permanent residents, but enough campers to make it feel o k. Convenient ti interstate, and Elizabethtown has a lot of history. Owners gracious- lead us to the site in a golf cart, and dirt/grass site was very level. Lots of large trees. - Doxie Mom

This an older campground that caters to seasonal campers. Roads are very tight and rough. Our site was hard to level on and had heavy tree cover. The park has a nice looking pond for fishing and a nice pool, of which we used neither. The trees at the entrance road are in bad need of trimming and brushed the side of your motorhome. - Teacher's Pet

Nice place. We stopped for an overnight and were happy. Lots of full timers, but all were nice and kept their places kept up. Lots or room between sites as well. The pool was nice to relax in as well for the whole family. Site was level and had water and power. - steammaker

Pull thru site, but barely room to walk between campers. Washers in laundry took our money and wi-fi did not work. Staff unfriendly. Bathroom dirty.
Dogs allowed, but several mean signs about where they could be walked.
We stayed here because family was close by despite the bad reviews, and regretted it. - WendyJayne

This is a small family run campground, nicely kept, and they take pride in their place. the park has good asphalt interior roads. Sites are fairly level pull through and gravel, with a small concrete patio. The problem with the patio area is that it is next to your neighbor's water and sewer hookup. There are no picnic tables. If you have a dog, you have to walk outside the park. There are signs everywhere about being evicted, with no refunds for violators of the dog rules. If you stay a week or more, they require a $25 damage deposit. That is in case you leave cigarette butts or cans on your site. We had a lot of butts on our site when we pulled in, so obviously they don't check well. There is no playground or pool, and they don't want children riding their bikes in the park either. This park is convenient to Louisville via I-65. The laundry area was clean and well maintained. One road to enter the park people also use to access the Flea Market and they ignore the stop sign, very dangerous! We would stay here again, as it is the most reasonably priced other than the State Park. - Vicki K

Agree with others, good for a few nights stay or if you want to visit nearby distilleries or Louisville. The office is only staffed in the afternoon, so if you try to call as we did you may get an answering machine. Someone eventually called back. We were told that if we arrived when no one is in the office to just pick a site in the front, which is what we did. The sites are nice and level, big rig friendly, pull-thru and gravel. They are pretty close together and there is no picnic table but we had full hook-ups. The wifi worked ok. There is no pool, dog run, or store. Laundry is $2.50/washer. Nearby is a big weekend flea market, grocery. Met our needs. - mohocamper

This is a very tired campground. You can tell there isn't much competition in the area based on the rate and the very poor site upkeep conditions. The property is surrounded by residential neighborhoods and I would bet the owners are just waiting for a developer offer as there is very little maintenance done on the sites.
While our site was very level, we could see other sites that the parked RVs needed blocks to adjust. Our picnic table was ancient, the grass was mostly weeds, the wifi is intermittent and "open". I was reprimanded upon arrival for an error on the online reservation form.
The positives are the electric was solid, we had a FH PT, there are nice facilities for kids, but for the price, the sites should be better kept!
Unfortunately there aren't many choices close in to Louisville, but we'll find somewhere else should we come through this area in the future. - McGarrert50

The park is very well maintained and clean. KOAs are always a little pricey, but the programming this weekend was Hawaiian weekend and my boys got to learn to hula dance and there were appetizers and free water/capri suns. It was really cute and the staff was very friendly.
Back-in spaces seemed to have more room. Our pull-through was very convenient and easy to park/level but was narrow.
Our boys rented the banana bikes and had a great time. There was a lot of room to ride them on the paved roads in the campground. The jumping pillow was great but the boys got pretty dirty. It had been raining a lot so that's probably why. I ran both mornings...the campground is pretty big so the outer loop, including the tent lane, is 1.5 miles. There are also nature trails, but it had been raining so I didn't chance it. Pool is open 9am to 9pm and was very clean and warm. Overall, we had a really great weekend. - Kadavis08
