It all depends on what you're looking for. Want a nice quiet place to come back to for the evening after rafting, hiking, and sightseeing? This is the place. Want a place with a lot of activities for kids to keep them busy? Not the place. That being said, we wanted the former so we loved it. It's a small, quaint campground that is very clean with good sized, level sites. Full hook-up with cable (cable not working well while we were there but the owner was working on it). Nice and peaceful in the evening time with little light pollution so one could star gaze. The owner is a really nice guy and really enjoyed talking to him. Highly recommend staying here if you're in the area. We'll definitely return.
Campground sites very spacious, mostly level, and paved. Very few have much privacy and few trees except at the back of the sites. Very well maintained campground. If I were rating on just the campground, then I'd give a 9/10, however, the park as a whole is a little overwhelming. Nice trails (take a hike to Rose Island if you get a chance) and also good views of the Ohio River. Not much in the way of other activities though and no pool for the kids. Due to lack of pool, it's a good spring / fall destination when normally it would be too cool to swim anyway. If those things don't matter to you, then it's definitely a nice campground worth visiting.
One word summed up this park for us: meh. Word to the wise, request site by the river. These are more spacious sites. Main campground up near office and pool is a mad-house; small sites cramped in on top of each other. We got a good chuckle at the actual pond vs. the picture shown on the website...looks much much larger on the website. We had a site on the river bank and were pleased with it overall. Nice long site and was able to sit along the banks of the Ohio watching the barges come and go. We stayed during the last weekend of October. They did do a good job of arranging trick or treating for the kids, but it was little disappointing to see all of the drinking going on while simultaneously handing out candy to kids. Probably won't come here again due to the overall party atmosphere. And as stated above, the pictures on the website don't accurately describe the tightly squeezed in sites at the top of the hill. The partying and tight sites just aren't' our thing. It might be OK for a base camp if your going to the casinos or exploring Cincy, but it's certainly not a destination park.
Great park with nice campground. 3 different loops, A, B and C. A-Loop is the older and original campground with smaller sites, a little more hilly, and mostly wooded. Great for tent campers and small travel trailers or pop-ups. B&C-Loops are newer, mostly level, and not as wooded/shaded. Sites here are bigger though. Good hiking trails in the park and in the summer time there is a nice pool with water slide and high dive boards. Only thing missing here are water hook-ups at each of the sites, other than that we love this park and campground.
Overall a decent park. It is sorta divided into 3 sections: Front-close to the entrance, middle-many of these have full hook-up, and back. The front section is W/E only. Sites seem kind of small and cramped together. Lots of trees in this area as well. We stayed in this section. Overall not bad, but I would've preferred the middle section. Many sites in the middle are W/E/S. Much bigger sites, seems more spread out, yet not as many trees. The back section seems to be older. Very small and unlevel W/E sites. It rained quite a bit while we were there and the water was standing in those sites, whereas the front and middle sites drained well. Check-in staff was pretty nice and very helpful when questions were asked. We'd recommend this campground as a good home base for people exploring the Cumberland Gap / Falls area.
OK park. Owners/staff are not too friendly. Really felt like I was interrupting something important when checking in. Be prepared to pay extra for AC use. Bathrooms clean, but got a good chuckle with the signs posted in front of each urinal and in the stalls telling me how to do my business; detailed all the way down to what order to do it all in. The chuckle was because they were serious, these weren't posted here as a joke. Campground did not come across as very kid friendly either. Could be wrong, but that's just the impression we got. Definitely not a destination park and probably won't return, nor can I recommend.
Fantastic! Kids had a great time fishing, park was very clean, pool was nice, facilities couldn't be nicer. If I had to say anything bad would be all the golf carts running around. Park isn't that big that golf carts are necessary, but to each their own. Our site was also right next to the dog run so some extra traffic and noise but tolerable. While there we made reservations for next year during the same time frame. Can't wait to get back.
Nice little park and campground. 1st loop closest to the guard house have more open sites and was a little noisy during our visit but not too bad. The other loop which is to the left of the main campground entrance had more secluded sites in the woods; drawback to these though is they are all dirt surface so could be messy if it rains. Great hiking trails in the park that will really give you a good work out! Will definitely return here for another trip and maybe take a canoe trip down the river.
Nice park, with good trails. Campground has waterfront sites available. We stayed on the waterfront which are in the woods. These sites require some leveling but not bad. Word of caution: these sites can be very windy!! We were here in October and very cold wind blowing through campsites made it unbearable to be outside. Non-waterfront sites on the other hand were completely calm! Just check the weather if you can before booking. Playground available for kids. Overall a good park that we'll return to.
Nice home base for the park activities. Pull-through sites are quite narrow (we stayed in a back-in site) while back-ins have a little more room between units. Roadway between sites is pretty narrow making backing in a challenge to miss units across the road as well as miss the marker post that's in the way when backing in. There are some very nice creekside sites available also, however watch your size as some of these are shorter. Depending on your site, you may need extra hose and extension cord. Sites are fairly level with only minimal leveling needed. No playground for the kids which was kind of a downer for them. Also, be careful when entering the park. The campground sign is right after the entrance instead of before. Since we arrived at night and it was pitch black, we missed the entrance and had to turn around using a road-side pull-off. All in all a decent campground that I'd recommend for folks sightseeing in the area. We will return.
Our first stay here and will definitely return. Very large sites, most if not all of the sites are level with some shade. Lots of water faucets around the campground for fresh water. Several nice trails on the property, large lake w/ boat rentals, playgrounds and on-site naturist providing fun activities for the kids. There is also a raptor rehabilitation center on-site that is open to the public.
Excellent park. Very, very large sites. They could easily double the occupancy by splitting the sites but I hope they don't. All sites are mostly level. Nice hiking in the park. Very close to downtown Madison which is a neat river town. This is great park. Only reason I didn't give it a 10 is for no water hook-ups, but there are stil plenty of places to get water.
Decent campground. Very short sites and not very many accommodating to longer trailers. Also a lot of very unlevel sites taking quite a while to level. We stayed in A loop. B loop is little better w/ flatter sites but still quite short. Both loops are quite shaded. Nice pool and very good trails. First time we've ever complained to rangers about other campers noise (loud boombox) and they took care of it quickly. Might also add that this park has one of the best primitive campgrounds I've ever seen. If we go back, will probably take the trailer to that area.
Just spent the July 4th week at Duck Creek. Overall a nice park that really caters to the "resort" feel. Nicely sized sites w/ concrete pads and fire pit. Daily trash pick-up, really nice pool w/ wading pool for kids as well as a hot-tub for the adults. Also nice, was a 2 hour (9-11pm) adults only pool time. Some adults in the pool in outside of those times should have really waited until the 9pm time if you know what I mean; they were shocked and upset that they were being splashed (while in the pool) by kids! Kind of funny. But I digress, nice park if your into the "resort" thing. We did notice the "2 old guys running around all day on golf carts" but never saw them yelling at any kids. I'd recommend this to park to others. Not a bad experience at all.
Great home base for when you go to Holiday World. Sites are very spacious, park is very clean and quiet. Lots of trails to hike on, boating on the lake, and also swimming in the lake. Also close by, is a living history museum of Lincoln's boyhood home as well as another museum. Lincoln's mom and sister are also buried nearby. Great family campground.
Out most favorite campground ever. If you stay in the full hook-up area the sites are very private. Blue spruce trees between all of the sites blocking out your neighbors. Sites are very level. No need to use boards or any other means to level the camper. Love this campground. We come back every fall.
Nice campground. Stayed here during Halloween season and lots of campers decorated for the holiday: lots of fun walking around and looking at the other sites. Very close to state parks and hiking. Will never understand who decided it would be a good place to put a campground in that location, however, they have done a very nice job of leveling out the sites. It was dark when we pulled in and set up and was very surprised how hilly the campground was once morning broke. Lots of activities for the kids. I would recommend this campground to others.
