This park is hard to rate because the sites differ so much. We had a back in site with no sewer for 5 days (made it through no problem). After the 2nd day we could have moved to a full service site but the office would not let us. It was over a 100 degrees for most days but the pool was never open must close after Labor Day no flexibility. Some sites have gravel and others are asphalt, some sites have grass others have none. The river is nice that runs through the park and they gave us a site that we where able to get satellite (with no guarantees). They charge 3% for CC use, first time in over 250 CG no big deal but just cheap. The turn off the road is narrow and very busy be warned. The CG is well located to see the horse and bourbon sites and that is the major plus for staying here. If you get the right site it may rate higher. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Motorhome.

We got lucky and Churchill Downs was running and got to see the historical race track. It is about an hour from the CG. Willett Bourbon in Bardstown was a great tasting, and Heartford in Paris was outstanding (very small). Took a tour of the Blue Grass horse area that was outstanding. Also visited the Ark and it is impressive. Georgetown is a cute town with a nice downtown. Five days was not enough.

Military discount plus 3%up charge for credit card. Easy check in. Clean grounds and restrooms. It was 95+ degrees the days of our stay. My 50 amp electrical protection device would not allow power into Motorhome. Adjoining campsite had same results. 30 amp device OK. 50 amp worked normally at next campground. Believe excessive heat and campground demand was too much for available power. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here on a week day after Labor Day and it was very quiet. The sites are close together, so if it were busy I can imagine it might be hectic. But for our stay it was terrific. The roads are paved, sites are gravel or grass. Bathrooms are new and very nice. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Would avoid this park as rigs are parked so close together and seems on a full weekend there are 3+ cars parked at sites. Extremely congested. Fire rings were so close to our coach we had to close all our windows & vents to keep from getting smoked out. If one doesn't mind being parked on top of neighbors it's probably a nice park for families as lots to do. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Motorhome.

Close to (with in 1 hr) the Ark & Creation Museum which is why we came to area. Also lots of fun things to see. Must do a tour of the Toyota Plant. Very interesting and well organized. Need reservations. LaRosa pizza in Greendale, Kentucky was some of best we have ever had. Not far from the Creation Museum.

A very nice park. Nice staff. Pool, Mini-golf. Stayed in site A78. Sites in this area on paved asphalt and have a nice wooden deck with a nice quality picnic table, which keeps your trailer floor very clean. Cable TV worked well. Free wi-fi. One of the nicest bathrooms and showers we have seen after staying at 14 RV parks on our 4 week trip. Bathrooms very clean and modern. Bathroom doors totally private surrounded with stained wood. The sites in our area were back in and a bit short if you have a really big RV. We were there for just one night with a 26 foot TT but there are other sites in the park that do have more room that you could book ahead. Price here was $40 with Good Sam discount. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tight quarters and difficult to get into site if you are the second rig on the back to back sites (first in can pull thru). Staff at check-in was friendly even though there were 3 of us checking in together. Electric and water were good (although the water had a lot of chlorine in it). We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice campground, very close to Frankfort. Our spot was right on Elkhorn creek. with a fully wooded view across the creek (non-campground property). Quiet campground but also had folks out enjoying campfires in the evening. Free ice cream social from 7-7:30 as well at the office / camp store. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Friendly staff, but this campground is not convenient as an overnight stop. It is a good distance from the interstate, heavy local traffic and a narrow road leading into the park. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Motorhome.

While this campground accomodates Big Rigs, it is borderline when full. Parking for tows and toads is at a premium and takes up space near the streets making turns difficult. Utilities are solid with decent Verizon signal. Our site had borderline satellite reception as there are many trees around. The park seems to be well maintained and has facilities that families would enjoy. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice park but sites are tiny; had only 4 feet between the back of our 45 ft fifth wheel and the neighbor behind. Could not park truck without being half way in road, very hard to get in and out of, other than that we enjoyed it! We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

One of the top two bath houses I've seen. Very clean and modern. The sites are close together but people are friendly, so not really an issue. We were on the end in 89B so we had some extra room. The owners are very nice and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay. You can easily walk to fish in the Elkhorn Creek. If you're a runner like me, one loop around the campground, out to the main road and down a side road was about 1.5 miles. Lots of people brought dogs but they were all leashed and people pick up after their pets. Very well maintained campground. Looking forward to going back. It's also VERY close to restaurants if you decide not to cook but feels like you're way out in the country. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Travel Trailer.

My perspective is that of an overnight traveler with a 40' motorhome and toad. This is a decent place to stay. My pull-thru site was a combination of gravel and turf. The campground was full and the site spacing is tight. Water and electric connections were decent. Care must be taken while traveling around the campground roads given tree limbs but can be done safely. The road into the campground is narrow and meeting another RV requires someone to pull over. The staff was friendly at check-in. Generally speaking, this was an okay stop for the night but I wouldn't consider it a destination campground unless you wanted to visit the area amenities. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Motorhome.
