Stayed here in October of 2009 for Halloween. Everything at the campgrounds are great except for getting in and out of the section with sites 11-40 in it. You had to drive around a circle at the end of the lane and it had cut off utility poles on the inside of the circle and a rig longer then 45 feet is hard to make the turn. Otherwise everything was just fine and I plan on being back in 2010.
Park was built in 2001, and is very clean and nice. Close to the lake and marina. Campsites get all of the sun during the day, due to no mature trees at this time. Pea gravel pads and sitting areas, the gravel is hard to keep out of the coach. Lots of daily activities for the kids and adults including fishing and crafts. Had to leave 2 days early due to equipment problems, park would not refund any money.
This campground is part of a State Lodge which has a very nice supper buffet. The swimming pool is a short distance away as well as the miniature golf course, but the playground for small children was right in the center for easy access and visual needs. There are several hiking trails, and canoe trips on the Licking river are offered during the summer. This campground is well within 30 minutes of 3 cities with major shopping and stores and is protected by the State Parks authority whom walk the campground several times a night as well as vehicle patrol. During summer months the park offers music and magic shows in the pavilion ehich is in the middle of the campground. Main draw backs are no sewer at each site and the road noise from US 68
The park itself is still as nice as it was since my last review however personnel issues have made the camping experience very bad. American Land Leisure are the operators of this campground for the federal government. The campground manager has proven to be a very rude and enforces the rules of the campground beyond what is called for. My last experience was very miserable and I won't be back until American Land and Leisure has fixed this problem.
This is a federal campground and has 40 sites in 2 sections that are first come first serve and another section that has 12 sites that is reserve only thru an 800 number. All site have large blacktop pads and numerous trees due to it being in a national forest. All sites have a rock area with picnic table and fire ring. There is a bathroom in each section however there is only one shower house with 3 showers per side and the are handicapped accessable.
The horsepark is a well maintaned campground and is close to the heart of downtown Lexington however the biggest problem is with the large events that take place at the Horsepark they sometimes reserve the whole campground and the general public is not allowed and this is not posted. The Horsepark needs to provide camping areas for those involved in the events and leave the public campgrounds open.
