This park was one of the nicer ones in Myrtle Beach. Clean sites, new bathhouses, easy access to the beach, and a great pool. We opted to stay up near the lake. This area is shaded by tall pines and oaks. Sites were level and wide by beach resort standards. The section where the seasonal sites were was very nice and the units were well kept. The "villa" style rentals looked very nice. The staff was friendly and attentive to the needs of the guests. It was handy to main highway access, shopping, and tourist attractions. We plan on returning next season.
I am giving this CG an 8 rating only because of the fact the roads are gravel and the dust raised by the vehicle traffic was kind of heavy and cable connection was somewhat limited and connection was poor quality. The store was very well stocked, the staff was courteous, and the grounds were well maintained. The snack bar served pizza and other fast food. We were fortunate to have a shaded space that overlooked the cove and the island.
Very close to highway, lots of road noise. Kids were racing golf carts late into evening. Site was weed covered. Had to cut weeds around fire ring. Extra charge for using water slide. Not a fifty five dollar a night site.
Campground staff were pleasant. It appears that in season they have a security person in the booth as you enter, but it was empty when we arrived. Campground itself was average. Interior roads were gravel and could have used some maintenance. We were up it the "C" section. This appears where they put the overnighters in bigger rigs. There were no sewer hook ups available. The only sewer hook ups we saw were in the section for the seasonal folks. There was 2 dump stations with easy access. The sites in our section were level, well layed out, grassy, and fairly large. From the literature we saw, they do have a number of family type activities on the weekends (pig roasts, ice cream socials, etc.) It's a good base for exploring Amish Country. We would return.
This is a small park that is located next to the railroad station, on the grounds of what was once Kentucky's largest coal mining operation. The operation ceased in the 1960's and the the area is being preserved in an attempt to allow people to see what an early twentieth century, company owned, mining town was like. They are shortly going to open a section of the mine for tours. The town of Benham, which ajoins Lynch, has a museum that depicts life in a coal mining town. The park is not fancy. The parking pads are gravel with grassy living areas. There are no public restrooms or showers, so tents or pop ups would not be practical. There is no office. There are no entertainment facilities. You register at the coal mining museum in Benham and drive up to Lynch (about a mile). It is simply a place to park while you explore the history of Lynch/Behham coal mining. It is in close proximity to Kingdom Come State park. This park has hiking trails, a fishing lake with paddle boats, and picnic areas with slides and swings for the kids.
We camped there so we could attend the Kentucky Bourbon Festival in Bardstown. Only 8 of the sites had 50 amp and sewer hookup and 7 of them were occupied by full timers. The rest of the sites appear to be 30 amp sites. The pads that overlook the lake have concrete runners to park on. There is no store or regularly scheduled office hours. You just pick a site and the owner periodically comes down from his house and registers you. There is a lake for fishing. Campfires are permitted. It's nothing fancy, but it is handy to downtown Bardstown activities and several of the distilleries on the Bourbon trail.
This is a very nice KOA park. The staff is very friendly (they were setting out fresh baked cookies when we arrived)and the park is well maintained. It is nicely landscaped. As mentioned in other reviews, it is handy to shopping and tourist attractions. It has easy on off access to the highways and the gas stations in the area are RV useful. The WiFi does not cover the entire campground, but the staff is aware of this and will let you know which sites get good connections. They are in the process of adding approximately 25-30 full hookup, pull through, sites.
It has clean, level, sites with paved main road and gravel secondary roads. Mostly travel trailers, pop-ups, and tenters. It does have big rig access and it does have a large over flow area for self contained units. Staff was courteous. It is now equiped with free WiFi access (ask for access code at check-in). There is a 2 dollar a day per pet fee. This a family campground with lots of kids. There were no planned activites for the kids despite being forth of July week. However it is close to town and there are a lot of things for people to do, so this would not be much of a drawback for families. Many kids were tubing on the section of the Saco River that runs by the campground. Easy access to put in.
