This was a nice state park, and practically empty mid week in mid-July. The sites were large, the park was quiet. There is a golf course at this park, but no swimming. The boat dock is massive and it was interesting to watch the activity of boats being launched. With the proximity to Lake Cumberland it was disappointing that there was no park access to the water. And there were no trails, no beach, no swimming pool, no playground. The washrooms/showers were newly renovated and very clean. We camped here mid-July during a heat wave. There is a waterslide park in nearby Somerset (20 minute drive).
This was our second visit to this campground. (The last was at least 15 years ago!) It was well maintained, and in a lovely, shaded area with mature trees. While the electric loop was full, it was very quiet. We hiked the gorge trail and visited the nearby Corning Museum of Glass. The pool was large and clean and there was a large playground by the pool as well as another in the campground. We would camp here again.
We chose this KOA because it was convenient to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland. It was a well maintained campground with quite a few seasonal campers. Most of the sites were pull through and gravel but with grass and trees in-between sites, which was nice. There was a nice lake with a small sandy beach and dock that you could swim at. Our stay was unpleasant as there was a natural gas leak near the site we were in. The smell of gas was noticeable as soon as we pulled in and the water was undrinkable. We were in a water/electric site near the gas well; other full hookup sites were not affected. We initially alerted a camp staff member of the problem and when nothing was done, we notified the owners of the camp, and they made an effort to resolve the situation, including issuing a partial refund.
This is a very interesting state park, with lovely trails to hike, a nature center, the John James Audubon Museum, a lake with canoes and paddle boats, a golf course, and to the kids' delight, four playgrounds! The campground is large and shaded. It was originally built in the 1960's and the adjacent road is busy, with some traffic noise during the day, but it is not loud. The campground offers an activity program Thursday evening through Saturday - fishing, crafts, nature walks. There is no swimming in the park, however, there is a community pool and water slide just down the road in Henderson. We really enjoyed this campground and would visit again.
This campground was conveniently located to the sites we wanted to see in Louisville - Slugger Museum, Kentucky Derby Museum/Churchill Downs and the Louisville Zoo. The staff were friendly, the washrooms were clean. The pool provided welcome relief from the heat. The sites are all gravel (in fact, the campground is mostly gravel, which is a bit disappointing). We camped here over a weekend in mid-July and it was pretty empty.
This is a small campground in terms of number of sites but the sites are fair sized and there is lots of green space, and a nice playground to run around. You can walk from your camper to the first tee on the golf course in just a few minutes. We camped here mid week and there were only a few sites filled. It was quiet and conveniently located to several distilleries and the Bernheim Forest and Aboretum in Clermont (free to visit - a must for nature fans! We took our bikes!) The kids enjoyed the Stephen Foster Musical. If there was a downside, there was no visible, marked path to walk or bike from the campsite to Federal House in the state park - you had to get in your car and drive the short distance. There was a shuttle bus for the evening musical performance. We would camp here again.
This was a nice, small campground, emphasis on small. It is located off the highway, across the road from the Natural Bridge trail access, so you had to get in your car and drive the 1/4 mile as it was not safe to walk on the shoulder of the road. Even to get to the playground, you had to cross the road. The campground sites are small. We camped in a 28ft travel trailer and reserved one of the largest sites and it was a tight fit. The site was level and the trails were great for hiking.
This is a lovely campground, with large level sites. A large pool and bicycle access to the Kentucky Horse Park site made this park a great destination. We camped during the week and it was quiet, with quite a few empty sites. The weekend was much busier. A great find whether you like horses or not!
This state park was lovely. The sites were large, and well treed. The campground was quiet and staff were friendly. They have wonderful hiking trails and an excellent interpretive centre with snakes, turtles and even a baby alligator. The kids loved the Junior Ranger program and earned several badges during our stay. The facilities were clean and well maintained. Savannah is only 15 minutes away. We'd stay here again.
We picked this campground based on reviews on this board. This is a wonderful spot - close to Jekyll Island and driving distance to Okenfenokee Swamp and Cumberland Island. Sites are large, private and well treed and the the campground is very quiet. Staff are very friendly. There is a park/playground for kids and a nice walking trail and pier. We would come back in a heartbeat!
