I would rate this campground higher, but there are zero amenities (no shower house, laundry facilities, pool). Charlotte just is not an RV destination town. That said, the owners are very friendly and helpful and the hookups were good. Most sites face each other so if you're there with friends, that can be a good thing. If not, it's a bad thing. We stayed on the "deluxe" RV sites which put us back to back with another unit. Easy access and about 14 miles from downtown Charlotte and directly across the street from the Speedway. There are also RV parks across the street, but you have to search the city Concord.
Very nice campground on the outer edge of Sevierville. This is a good thing because when you leave on Sunday you're already ahead of the march out of Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge. We had a pull through site, easy to access and the utilities worked great. Cable TV service on site. My only regret is that maybe I would have taken one of the back-in sites right on the river. Good place to call home when visiting the area.
I changed the Big Rig access on my review, because technically the park can handle 40 foot motorhomes. Mine fit, but you will have to remove your toad or it will hang out into the road. The pull-through spaces are close together, and if you have a neighbor with slide-outs and you have slide-outs, it's comfy to say the least. But, the park has a great location close to the Nashville attractions and shopping and in my opinion is a much better choice than Brown County State Park. You'll have to drive miles and miles to get out of that park, and the sites just aren't that much better. My site did take some creative leveling as the auto-level feature jacked me way to high, but it was doable. There is a nice wooded walking patch and my pups loved that. The people in the office were very friendly and helpful.
This park is a local gem to the Louisville area. It has been closed for several years due to budget cuts by the City of Louisville but reopened under the management of Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife sometime last year. I've been camping in this park for over 25 years and this was my first visit back in probably 10. Amazingly, it looks almost exactly the same as when I left. The management has been putting a lot of work into this campground. First, I noticed that all of the electric sites now have a dual 50/30 amp pedestal. Many of the water hookups have been replaced. I did not get a count of sites as many of the previous water/electric sites were supposedly abandoned due to deterioration of the electrical service. In reality, it wasn't that good when I was there 10 years ago. However, they are putting in new water in that area and they may install new electric, I did not get to talk with anyone in charge. There is some construction of concrete pads of some sort going on and again, I'm not sure what that's all about. The beauty of this park is that it is very quiet and rustic. Many large trees and lots of shade. There are two separate pavilions. One has camping around it, so that would be great for a family get-together. Some sites are not very level, but most are no problem. There are three "buddy" sites that are off by themselves that would be great for a few friends camping together. They have electric and water hookups. There are no sewer sites, although there is a dual dump station that is easy to access. Lots of paved roads are great for bike riding and golf carts are allowed. The park is convenient to Brandenburg, KY which is a few miles down the road for shopping and a stones throw from Fort Knox, Radcliff and Elizabethtown. Louisville is about 20 miles away. The reason for my 6 rating is the park still needs some work. There are a LOT of trees and if you have a big rig it takes some care navigating around the park. There are several trees right beside the road that would be easy to clip if you're not careful. Also, some sites would be impossible to access with a larger rig. We have a 40' motorhome and it was slow going all the way into the park. Right at the entrance to the park is a guard shack with electric gates. The gates are very narrow. I cleared them with about a foot on each side to spare. Also, the road coming into the campground has many overhanging limbs. If you stay to the center of the road you'll be fine, but if you meet up with another rig exiting, someone better stop. Also, we were allowed to do a late checkout at 5:00 p.m. which was a nice bonus. I have lots of memories camping at this park with my children over the years in a multitude of different camping rigs. I was happy to see the park back and nearly as I remembered it from years ago. It's a nice place.
Arrived just at the start of the season as they just turned the water on to one of the loops on April 4th. This is a nice campground and unknown to many people. Sites are paved and generally level. We had no problems leveling our RV. Sewer sites are available. Sixty one of the new sites are Class AA with 50 amp service and individual water and sewer hookups. The majority of the sites in the campground are electric only,. That said there are MANY sites. It is a LONG drive from the gate at Indiana 62 into the campground area, but the roads are very nice and there aren't any overhanging trees to cause a problem. Digital TV signal is good due to proximity to Louisville. Most sites would also have good satellite access. Absolutely no Wi-Fi although my AT&T and T-Mobile signals are strong. Charlestown is a nice little town with some shopping, grocery, and restaurants. Good access from I-65 in southern Indiana. It's good road all the way to the park. Price is high, but it's a nice place to stay.
We have stayed here several times. It's the place to go if you're in the Cave City area. Nice sites, mostly all pull-throughs with all amenities. There are now fire rings on most of the sites. We love the dog run, big and very nice for the pups. Owners are super friendly and helpful. Convenient to all Cave City / Glasgow area attractions and Camping World is a few miles down the road in Bowling Green.
It's a KOA. It's expensive. The sites are all gravel and it was definitely designed for a different era. Years ago we stayed here and it was a relatively rural area, now it is surrounded by subdivisions and golf-courses. The site layout is rather confusing as sites seem to be everywhere. That said, everything worked as it should and our site was relatively level. Owners were very friendly and put us on the best site available for our size rig. They have a nice fenced dog run which was a treat for our pups. If you need propane, do not fill up here. I paid almost three times what it normally costs me. Had I known a fillup was going to cost me $120 I would have gone elsewhere.
This campground would be a good stop-over point. Sites are very close together. The owners do make it a point to space units out so that you are not sitting right on top of each other, but basically this is a big gravel parking lot with trees. There are a lot of semi-permanent people staying here, probably local workers. It is quiet, I did not notice any road noise. Electric and water pressure are good. They are very picky about dogs. The owner told me she'd have to put me by the dog run because my dogs might bark and wake up the people who sleep during the day. Also, they have a two dog limit, less than 30 pounds. So, if you have a big dog, you won't get in. Campground is not cheap and they don't offer any discounts but to be fair they have a great location right off I-65 and close to almost any restaurant you can imagine, plus a Sam's Club and Walmart. Very convenient.
We were traveling to Gettysburg and found that Round Top was the ONLY campground we were able to reserve a site for in October. Every campground in Gettysburg runs Halloween Weekends the entire month of October and book up early. We were lucky in that someone on a seasonal site had pulled out early. There are a LOT of seasonal campers in this campground. In fact, after my stay, I received an email from the campground inviting me to "go seasonal". We camped on a back-in site that had a concrete pad. It was sufficient for our needs in a 40 foot motorhome. We were parked next to a park model trailer that had been there for some time with several associated out-buildings and sheds. A few of the seasonal units looked like they had been there a very long time, but I didn't really notice anything messy in the area of our site. The electric worked well and the sewer connection was in a good location. I was not charged additional for cable that I'm aware of, but it is a pricy campground. Our site was fairly close to 15 and you do hear a lot of traffic noise. Inside, not so much. If you sleep with your windows open, it might be a problem. The roads are pretty narrow and winding and there are some sites better suited for smaller rigs (although the office knows this and won't try to put you on a site where you will not fit). The folks in the office were very friendly and provided some good advice for sightseeing in the area. I did not try to use the WIFI, although one of the repeaters was on the shower house a few sites away from me. I think it would work well. They use Tengonet, so if you have an account it should work fine. If I go to Gettysburg again, I'd go back.
This is a tight park. The only decent sites are right in the front and even those are difficult to get into. The pull-through sites have concrete picnic tables on each sides and large branches hanging over the top. They are fairly level but there wasn't one that I felt comfortable trying to get my rig into. As far as I was able to tell, there are only two sites that have 50 amp hookups and those are short back-in sites. I could not get my motorhome into one of those. Don't arrive after dark, it's impossible to see anything. Other than that, it's a nice little town to visit. If you're just passing through for the night or there to see the show it is probably okay if you have a small trailer.
Very nice park and close to all attractions in the Elkhart area. 20 minutes down the road from Shipshewanna, very convenient and much cheaper than staying in Shipshewanna. Nice sites with power poles shared be two sites. The only issue would be if two 50 amp rigs were parked side by side. In that case someone must choose 30 amp. Not a problem for us as there were only about 15 rigs in the entire campground. Front office folks were very friendly and helpful. The trains run constantly (about every 15 minutes) with a lot of associated horn blowing. But as another stated, you get used to it. I heard it a few times during the night but went right back to sleep. If I'm in this area again, this is where I'll stay.
We stayed at Renfro Valley to attend the Saturday night Barn Dance which we really enjoyed. We stayed in the "new" part of the campground, which is where you'll end up if you want 50 amp hookups. There is plenty of room and the pull throughs are nice and long. However, there are NO trees whatsoever. You are basically sitting in a big field. There were full hookups (cable, water, sewer) and they have wifi available although if you're staying in this section, the wifi signal is weak to non-existant. For me, it was unusable. There are no firepits and fires are not allowed. Also, there is no garbage pickup at the site, you have to take your garbage to the dumpster at the entrance of the park. If I came back, I'd forgo the 50 amp and stay in the older section where there are at least some trees. Also, the new section does not have a bath house, you have to walk to the older section (which is quite a haul across a bridge).
Nice park. If you have a big rig avoid loops B and C as there is a tight turnaround (I almost didn't make it). Stayed in one of the pull-through sites which was sort of curved, but decent. Nice trees in the area. If I came back, I'd select one of the back-in sites, they are much nicer. Corn Hole and Line Dancing is the name of the game here up until around 10:00 PM. After that it was pretty quiet. When arrived, do not follow the signs in Prestonsburg to Jenny Wiley as that will take you in the humongous loop that you'll wonder what in the world you were thinking going this way. Go East young man and come right in the back door, it's much shorter.
First off, let me say we ended up staying in the overflow parking (of which we were grateful). That's why I rated it a 6. Otherwise, it would probably be an 8 or 9. We arrived in Jackson Hole without reservations anywhere because we just weren't sure of our itinerary for this trip. That said, I don't recommend NOT having reservations. Every park in town was completely full and we weren't even there on the weekend so this KOA was the last game in town. They were so kind as to put us in their overflow space (which is nothing more than a gravel pad by the road, but they did set us up with water and electric so all was good. The people in the park were SUPER NICE. I'll repeat that, SUPER NICE. It's a good place to stay. Also, I'll state this. If you're coming into Jackson Hole, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DRIVE OVER THE TETON PASS. No way, no how. That's the closest I came to dying. Better to find a different route (and I'll be discussing this with AAA for routing us over that pass).
Nice park with good access to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. Pull through sites although could be a bit longer as you will have to remove your tow vehicle. Nice shaded sites. The only complaint is there are no garbage cans close by; you have to drive to the dumpster at the front of the park.
Very nice campground with great view of the town of Gardiner and the north entrance to Yellowstone. THE campground to stay in if you want to visit Yellowstone and don't want to deal with the campgrounds inside the park which are always full. Make your reservations here and don't worry about a thing. You can easily drive into Yellowstone and see it all using this park as a base camp. We stayed on the upper level across from the dog walk (we have three beagles) and while the view from that point wasn't the greatest, they were good sites and easy to get into with full hookups.
Nice park. Owners were very friendly and accommodating especially considering we arrived without reservations on the anniversary of Custer's last stand (purely by accident BTW). Nice spacious pull-through sites and beautiful vistas. Road was a bit dusty leading up to the park, but hey, you're out west! Dig it.
This campground is a hidden gem. It's a bit off the beaten path behind Clear Creek Park. RV campsites are rather short and extend into the parking lot, but work okay for our 36 foot rig. There's a tight turn coming into the campground, but most rigs should make it okay. 30 amp hookups only and there is only 1 site with a sewer hookup. You back into your campsite and the lake is about 50 feet behind your rig. Beautiful view. Drawbacks are the boat ramp which is near the end of the RV sites which has quite a bit of traffic. Also, if there is a family reunion going on in the shelter, expect a lot of cars parked around your RV. Big plus is the cost, only $13 per night. Close to restaurants and shopping in Shelbyville, it's pretty convenient. The dump station leaves much to be desired as it's on the wrong side as you are leaving. Personally, I'd recommend dumping elsewhere, but that's up to you. Overall, a very nice clean park with grass, trees and a nice lake. Beware of the duck--he is cranky.
This is the second time we've camped here. The first time was a few years ago. The trees are bigger now and they seem to be trimming the grass around the sites more. Very VERY nice campground. Our site (#120) was very large, right across from the bathhouse and had a large shade tree. Perfect. The only complaint I have is the price. For 3 nights camping (Thursday through Saturday) it cost $104.00. Rather expensive I think for a state park.
This is an older park, but the owners were super friendly and very accommodating. Another reviewer stated it was not in the best area of town, but neither is the competition (Memphis/Graceland RV Park & Campground). This one is maybe a block further down Elvis Presley Boulevard and for the price difference we paid ($31 vs $46) it's a buy. Good hookups and pull through sites are available. Very convenient to Graceland, shopping, restaurants, etc. We'd return.
Very nice a convenient park to Cave City. Not much for kids to do, but if you're looking for a nice, clean place to stay, this is it. Cable hookup/wifi available. This park is brand new, so there's not much grass yet and the trees are very small. Still, the best RV park in the Cave City area, hands down.
This is a nice park, but is new and there is not a lot of shade. It was the most...how do I say this...UNIQUE park I've been in. They don't cut the grass between the sites. You do have a mowed area around your campsite which is sufficient, but the area between the campsites has been allowed to go fallow, which means there are tall grasses, small trees, weeds and the accompanying insects and SPIDERS. Sites are mostly level and there are a lot of them. We'd stay again, but suspect early spring or fall would be a better time to visit.
This graveyard is convenient to I-44 and near Six Flags. We really didn't plan on staying in St. Louis and found we had some time and this was the only game in town that wasn't full. I say that because they TOLD us they only had one site left, and it wasn't a full hookup (no sewer). When we arrived (Friday afternoon) the campground was nearly empty. Graveyard. I thought "well, tonight it will fill up". Well, that never happened, so I'm not sure WHY they insisted they were full unless it's some sort of marketing ploy to extract you from your money. There's a graveyard. The campground itself is typical KOA, paved roads, gravel sites with hookups, graveyard, and Kamping Kabins. Did I mention the graveyard? Yeah, we'll it's right next to the campground. You can step out of your camper door and reach right out and touch someone. Creepy. It's a noisy place too. We were camped by the Kabins and there was a rowdy bunch of teenagers laughing and playing some stupid harmonica until well into the night. The management never put a stop to that. It's DARK too. The second night I walked out of the door to walk the dog, went to the dark side of my motorhome and ran right into a guy in a golf cart parked there watching something. It must have been management creeping around looking for something. The place sits right across the road from a MAJOR rail line that has trains running all night, so it's not very quiet. The graveyard IS quite though, eerily so.
This is an excellent park. The ONLY complaint I have is that their WI-FI connection is not the best. The only way I could get an internet connection was sitting outside at the picnic table at the site next to me. But hey, I was on vacation--who needs the internet . Great pool, great bathhouses, super-friendly staff. If you go, see staff for some great deals on Branson shows. They saved us a ton of money.
Overall, this campground was okay. It's near the main road so there is some road noise. It was very dusty when we were there, but Missouri hadn't had rain for two months so that's understandable. The bathhouses have carpeted floors which seemed gross to me (even around the toilets). I wouldn't go in there. No AC either in the bathhouse. Also, right behind the office there was a telephone pole with a makeshift fence around it. At the base were some mondo sized huge wires coming out all taped together (some bare) that ran down into the ground. They were obviously hot and doing something, but not safe at all. Also, there are a LOT of permanent/seasonal campers there.
This campground at one point had to be a KOA that has closed down due to the design (A-Frame) of the building. It is right on old route 66, about 3 miles from the Sullivan exit off I-44. When we arrived, it was nearly empty. It was strange but the staff running the campground didn't take down any information from us, just took our $20 and showed us to a site. The campground is decent enough, but the showerhouse was lacking. It has a nice pool with a vortex in the middle strong enough to suck down your first born or a small dog. They were preparing for some sort of festival when we were there, but we were afraid to ask what for.
This is the only game in town if you're wanting to stay in Hermann (more on WHY you might not WANT to stay in Hermann later). Lots of sites scattered throughout city park. Easy access with a few pull-through sites. Not manned by anyone. Full hookups, even has 50 amp which was nice. Nice city pool with tennis courts (extra $). The city of Hermann is basically closed for business but there is the bridge. We came here expecting to find a quant little German town with restaurants and shops. Most of the restaurants were closed when we were there, and there were only about 5 antique shops open. The rest were either closed for reasons unknown or were for sale (except for the bridge). There was a brewery downtown, but the brewmeister messed something up and had to dump the entire batch of beer, so no beer until the end of August. There's a nice winery there, but unless you like either wine or high priced dinners, it's best avoided. When we left, the only memory we were left with was the memory of why we came there in the first place and the bridge. Oh, did I mention a bridge? If you're heading out of town and going north toward Hannibal, the only way out is this dinky narrow steel bridge over the river that had the posterior portion of my body munching the seat cushion the whole way across. Whoa to the one who meets a semi coming toward you across the bridge.
