I traveled with my 35' RV which was hard to maneuver on the narrow roads. I stayed on site #24 and if there had been anyone across from me when I arrived I would not have been able to back into my site. I noticed this problem throughout the park. The sites are very close together. If you have a 30' or longer RV I recommend reserving sites 43-54. There was no TV reception which did not bother me but I did notice several people had satellites so I would guess to say they were able to get a signal. The Fish Hatchery is an excellent place to visit especially if you have small kids with you. Most people say the fishing is great there but I had no luck, never got a bite. I would stay again but definitely on row 43-54. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate reflects Federal Senior Pass. Verizon signal is strong, both phone & wireless. We were able to get a shaded site that backed up near a clearing, so we got a Dish signal for TV. Our site was too small for a rig the size of ours, and the pine needles falling profusely were a nuisance. Roads are tight, but manageable. The water faucet at our site leaked, causing low water pressure in our rig. We reported it, but no repair. Nice, inexpensive laundry room. Our GPS brought us in on Hwy 90 and 127 from the south, which is very curvy, hilly and narrow. Be sure you stay on the Cumberland Parkway and come in from the north. You can't negotiate the turn off of 127 from the south with a bigger rig. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Many big rig sites. Ninety percent of sites are level and size stated on website. Large shade trees hamper cell, satellite, and TV service. A fishing paradise for trout below the Dam. Free access to trout hatchery. Excellent playground for small children. Water out of the dam is deep,cold and swift. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice, well-maintained campsite. Some sites were rather close together though. NO CELLPHONE RECEPTION at this campsite (at least none for ATT/Cingular). We would camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great park wonderful view of river and dam. Water coming from dam made the camp ground a lot cooler, everyone was very friendly. Very shaded lots. Great trout fishing. Currently building a new section and those lots look like they are going to be really nice by next year. Will go back... We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our favorite campground in Kentucky. Sites are very large and table top level. Most sites are very long and spread out. Great view of Wolf Creek Dam. Many sites are designed for camper and a boat. Very popular among fishermen with Lake Cumberland on one side of the dam and the Cumberland River on the other side. Free tours of the Fish Hatchery are also available here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Just spent a wonderful weekend at this campground owned by the army corps of engineers. On one side of the dam is Lake Cumberland on the other side is the wolf creek for great fishing. On site is also the fish hatchery which is a free tour. The sites are very large and wooded. Most sites have a good distance between. Elec and water for $21 per night. Many of the sites are made for camping and parking your boat. Sites were all gravel with concrete pads, picnic tables, and lantern holders. Great place to get away to. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I have to disagree with the above post. We found this CG to be great. HUGE sites, enough for our 26' TT, Suburban tow vehicle AND a boat. Very shaded. I woke up every morning convinced it was cloudy out, but it wasn't. Next to Wolf Creek Dam by Lake Cumberland. Easy boat access and about 10 minutes away from Lure Lodge and the State Dock if you want to rent a boat. This is a great campground and we plan on returning. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Sites are too close together, no privacy at all. Vistors are charged $3.00 to get into the campground. No playgrounds are within the campground. Very hard to get a big rig in the sites, but it can be done. Only two bath houses and only one of them has laundry facilities. If you wait till evening to take a shower, you will probably be standing in line waiting. The smell of raw sewage is very bad at times. Sites are level and graveled, but no handicap sites are available. I won't be returning to this campground. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Very nice state park campground, but as an earlier review has already mentioned, the campground area has a layout that is not big-rig friendly. We did alright with our 35-footer, but there were only a few sites we would fit our rig. And don't plan on level sites either. But very clean and well maintained park. Lodge had dining room with spectacular lake view, outdoor pool was closed due to a maintenance problem but campers were allowed to use the lodge pool (which is not usually the case) so that was nice. Horseback riding, tennis courts, horseshoe pits, scheduled activities and hiking trails were all available the weekend we were there. Be aware though - the area has lots of ticks! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is a beautiful piece of property, but the layout of the park is just bizarre. The pads are paved but short, uneven, and placed in odd places. Roads are narrow and not big rig friendly at all. Plan on long runs for water and electric at most sites. Its too bad it has such a funky layout because this place is so pristine. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped late in the season, October 23-25, and the park was almost empty. Beautiful fall foliage and cool temperatures allowed for a wonderful weekend away from the city. Originally our site was #70 with a small deck however there is a smelly dumpster between 70 & 71 so we moved over to site 19 which was great! Plan on long electric and water runs. We were lucky with a 50' hose / used 35' and 25' of electric. Also the majority of sites state slight grade but you should bring extra cribbing to level with. Overall a great park with most of the sites recently updated. Very clean facilities and some of the most beautiful fall colors we have ever witnessed. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here 2 nights. There are many amenities: swimming pool, flying disk golf, putt putt, horse back riding, children's playground, and fishing and boating near by. We stayed on one of the "premium" sites which had a wooden deck, a very nice metal picnic table and a lamp post to hang a lantern from. The sites also had fire rings that had cooking racks made onto them. I didn't even get our grill out either night. I cooked on the fire ring rack. Most sites are shaded by large trees. Roads in campground were paved as were the parking pads. Not all sites were level and some had the electric and water hookups a little far away (over 50' for our electric) so bring an extension cord and long water hose to connect your rig. Bath houses were very clean and well maintained. Each bath house had 2 regular showers and 1 handicap shower. Water pressure for showers was good too. The staff at the campground was very friendly as were the staff in the general store. Our only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer. We will definitely be returning to this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
5 Miles from US 129 entrance to campground. Mostly short, somewhat unlevel sites about right size for my 26' Class C. A few sites for Class A motorhomes. Many sites suitable for tents and popups. Many boating campers during weekend. No T-Mobile cell phone coverage. Pay phones available. Good asphalt roads and sites. Very well maintained park. No views of lake in campground except at Lodge. 12 miles to nearest shopping. 10% discount for over 62 years. ($18 is normal rate). I will definitely return from this my first 3-day visit. No advance reservations and 14 day maximum. We camped here in a Motorhome.
