We chose this location as a good jump off point to Mammoth cave, for that purpose it worked out well. This campground is pretty remote for supplies and at least 20 min from the nearest shopping area. That said, it's also a good 30 min from Mammoth cave. Our registration was fast and simple through reserve America. We were given a garbage bag and map at the park entrance and we were off to the campsite. The campsite was well kept and the area appeared to be in good repair. Our biggest problem was the cleanliness of the bath house. There were dead bugs all over, and I mean all over everything, to include the sink counter, the urinal, the toilet and the showers. As for the live bugs they weren't that much of a problem but they need to install a fan to move the air and keep bugs from settling in. The view we had from our campsite was incredible, overlook of the lake breathtaking especially the next morning when the sun came up. We would camp there again when in the area.

This campground is fantastic! It is located right on the shoreline of Nolin River Lake. Many people have their boats on site or on the shore, so very boat friendly. The playgrounds are all fairly new and the bathrooms are pretty good too. The showers have hot water and water pressure. There is a boat ramp near and a marina. The marina has some hot food and groceries to purchase, and also picnic tables to sit and watch the flow of people. There is not a store near by so make sure you come stocked with enough food.

I am so excited to have found this campground! The park is amazingly beautiful and the view of the lake is picturesque. There are sites that are right on the water, you can even tie your boat up next to it, but those sites don't have electricity. We stayed across from these sites in A020. The bath house was clean, there are regular showers with hot water - something not all campgrounds have! Most of the sites are not too close together. The one we stayed in had a lot of trees around it and room for my kids to play. There are many playgrounds and they are updated. The only thing I wish they had (that they don't) is a pool. However, the water is clean and beautiful and everyone swims in the cove near the campground on hot days. I can't believe this campground is this nice and is only 22 dollars a night!

A sprawling campground with lake views at nearly every site. Nicely wooded, with average spacing between sites, which could mean little privacy depending on where you are. Property includes marina with well stocked store, however it is not within easy walking distance of Areas A/B. Also available are rental cabins, multiple playgrounds, fishing pier, boat launch, and large picnic pavilion. No swimming beach, but lake access is available throughout. At the end of the season, Moutardier was unexpectedly crowded. Overall, this COE property was well maintained. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pretty standard Corp of Engineer fare here. Lots of room between most sites situated on three different loops. Lots of waterfront sites but all waterfront sites lack power. If you have a boat, park it on the shoreline around the campground. Most of the activity at this campground centers around Nolin Lake with few other features in the campground. This might be a good stop when on your way to or from Mammoth Caves. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found a gem in this campground. We were looking for a place to stay while touring Mammoth Cave and ran across this one, which gives seniors with the pass a 50% discount! The views of the lake are fabulous from almost all campsites. The campsites are some of the nicest (although not the largest) we've found with picnic table, cooking table, and gravel RV pads. There is no sewer, internet, or cable - which I normally require to give such a high rating...but the beauty and cleanliness outranks this time. This would be a great place to camp and boat. We definitely will return. Be aware that the roads approaching the campground are narrow with little shoulder. Once my husband saw the campground, I was forgiven for making him drive on such narrow roads. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My experience here was greatly affected because of the campsite we reserved. I was going to give this park a 5 or 6 rating, but my wife said that the womens' restroom pushed it below this score. Upon arrival to the campground, we were instructed to ignore the "do not enter" sign to get to our campsite. According to the camp host, we had to enter in this fashion to enable our slide to extend and so that our door wouldn't open directly into oncoming traffic. The pull through site should have been labeled differently. Sites 56, 58, 61, 63, 64, and 65 are not true pull through sites. They are more like pull off the side of the road. If you reserve one of these sites, it is possible that you could be parallel parking your camper if the site in front of you and behind you are occupied. And because of the less than two or three feet of clearance from the road, you will get much of the campground vehicles running by your bed at night and in the morning. Sleeping in is almost an impossibility. The traffic on this loop was heavy, and it wasn't a place where I felt it was comfortable to let my child use his scooter or to play ball. To make matters more irritating, the weekend crowd was loud, and the music started at 7am during three of the days. At least two tenters had generators with them, and they cranked up very early in the morning as well. Also, this campground is heavily used by people who boat. hose who anchor their boats on the shore often track mud into the bathrooms and showers. This wasn't too big of a deal for me, but my wife said that beyond the mud factor, the ladies' room didn't look like it had been cleaned at all during our 4 night stay. This park was the first of six that we visited on a four week expedition, and it was rated the lowest by the entire family. On the positive side, there is a playground, a nightly kids' movie most evenings, and very picturesque views of the lake if you have the correct site. The lake is full of fish, and if you like to bring a boat along for your trips, this could be a park for you. But the "camping" aspect of this stop way below the parks which have visited and wish that I could have stayed at the local state park which is much smaller with less traffic. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate reflects Golden Age Access card. Excellent value and a wonderful campground. Each site has a good view and many are level and large. Loved staying here. Would love to visit again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the most beautiful park. Almost every campsite has a view of the lake. There are a lot of shade trees. We love camping here because it is very reasonable, clean, and has a great view. There is shoreline for the kids to swim in the lake and fish. We love it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Pronounced Moo-ta-deer. The campground is a good mix of trees and grass. Enough trees so that most sites have some shade but not totally dark like some campgrounds. Most sites are satellite friendly. Many sites are close together but staggered so you don’t feel on top of your neighbor. While many sites are as long as 65 - 70 feet, the interior roads are tight with some turns difficult or impossible for big rigs. Electric is strong 20/30/50 amp and water pressure is nearly 100 psi so be sure you have a pressure regulator. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A beautiful Corp of Engineers park that is very well kept. Some of the turns are very tight and not accessible for big rigs, no matter what length the sites are. They were not at all that helpful when spoken to on the phone. The camp hosts were cold and distant although polite. We camped here to see Mammoth Caves when we were told their (Mammoth Caves) campground was full, which was not true. During the week the campground was mostly empty in mid May but filled up completely on Memorial Day weekend. Noise was a minor issue as many campers were "younger" and had the sounds to prove it. Quiet hours were observed though. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
$11 was the rate I paid for a site with electric and water, using my Golden Age Passport. Regular rate is $22. Regular rate for site with no hookups is $15. Most sites have tables and firepit/grills. Many sites have beautiful lake views. Dump, flush toilets, showers, laundry, boating, fishing, public marina, playgrounds, hiking trails. Open mid-April through late October. Staff were friendly and helpful. Credit cards accepted. We camped here in a Motorhome.
