This is a beautiful state park, make no mistake about that. The forest is dense, in fact so dense that we could not get DirecTV from our spot. Our crank up antenna, however, was able to capture enough local channels to satisfy us. Our Verizon cell phone and broadband Internet connection was great. The park is pretty much dated with mostly asphalt pads that are short and narrow for larger RVs, and your tow vehicle has to be parked on the adjacent grass. Our spot #4 was level enough to make leveling our motorhome a breeze. Our space was on the road that leads to the park entrance and traffic past our motorhome was speedy and noisy at times. Speaking of noise, the traffic on the nearby highway is noisy, and the close-by park sewage treatment plant is very noisy; it runs all of the time. The electric and sewage hookups are adequate, but the water hookup is far enough away to require our 50 ft water hose. As I walked around the park, I noticed that a couple of RVs had to use at least 100 ft of hose to reach their water hookup. There are lots of activities in the park and lots to see and do in the area. I am not sure we would return to this park again with the high price of staying here not reflected in the park quality. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Main advantage was close proximity to Interstate Highway. This is an old park and there are some indications of both it's age and the degree of maintenance. For example, just about all of the shower heads and controls need to be replaced or repaired. Just plain worn out. A lot of water is being wasted. Washrooms nicely heated, kept clean. The park is quiet at night, but when the trucks are running back and forth on their way to and from the next-door quarry operations, you can't help but notice. There's a 'herd' of feral cats here and indications that someone is throwing out food to them on a regular basis. We were using only lights in our newer 19 ft trailer when the circuit breaker tripped. Before that, the lights flickered. We never had this problem before and we are inclined to suspect the camp's electrical wiring. Grass was well maintained and in good condition. Extra charge for Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is quiet and easy to find. Roads are paved, as are the sites. Sites tend to slope quite a bit and we sought a different site than the one assigned. We found a different site but still had to put the motor home passenger side dual on a block to avoid extending jacks more than we desire. Water service is shared by two sites so you very well may need an additional hose to connect. The sites are short and our 36-foot was backed in so the jacks were barely on the pavement. Our toad barely fit in front of the coach but only by parking parallel to the drive and parking partially on the grass. The park is maintained by the state and is okay. The park is located south of Lexington but remains a convenient trip into town and distilleries. We camped here in a Motorhome.
