6 RV Parks near Owensboro, Kentucky
Aug 2018 - $89.00
We attended a dog show at the Owensboro Convention Center and the event offered RV parking at the center. We were pleasantly surprised that the designated sites were well marked and had both water and electric service (30 & 50 amp). The location was wonderful - only a few steps from the Convention Center's back loading doors and right along the lovely river walk. It's also within walking distance of many restaurants on 2nd Street. The area is well lit and patrolled at night, and we had no concerns staying here for 3 nights. Our site was arranged through the show we attended. I don't know what the Convention Center's policy is for other shows or events, but it's worth asking. Very convenient! - Flying Mantis

We paid 45.00 total to stay and had electric and water. When we went to dump in the morning we were told it was 25.00 fee to use their dump station. The park was beautiful but will never return due to their policies. Yes, they had full hook ups available, therefore I didn't understand their reasons at all. - JuliaKF

Price on website is $30. Correct price is $45. If you fish, you must throw them back. Otherwise pay lake fee applies of $15. No rugs in front of campers (might kill grass supposedly), but room additions are ok (duh). No motorcycles. No alcohol. Grandson fished in wrong area, was told he needed to get a ticket. Got him a ticket... $15, one of the owners came screeching at him that he was not allowed to fish there again (same owner) ......didn't ask for a ticket, or say 'Just checking for tickets', just proceeded to yell at him. He told her he had one, and she commented "how do I NOT know this?". Showed her the ticket he bought from her employee. Terrible place to go. Will never go back. Swimming lake full of seaweed stuff and mud. Owners have too many rules and overpriced. - lecatts

Beautiful park in the woods. Big swimming lake with nice beach, concession area. We had a site by the lake; it was great. Roads were a little narrow but not bad. Owners are great. - V F Coffman

My review will echo what others have said. Many years ago, this was truly a fabulous resort, but it is old and tired now. However, it is not a dump, and we would stay here again. So much depends on which campsite one gets. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. No cable TV, but over the air broadcast networks from nearby Evansville, IN can be received. We were able to find an opening in the trees to use our portable satellite dish. WiFi is available to purchase, but we did not use it. Our Verizon cell signal was weak, but usable. Hook-ups are a bit awkward being located at the very back of the campsite. Water connections are shared with another campsite and centrally located between the two sites. We needed about 55 feet of water hose to reach the faucet. Our electrical connection box was a disaster, and became unusable during the late evening. I had to use an extension cord and run to an adjacent unoccupied site to keep power during the night. It appeared that there had been a fire at some point, and the box had been "rigged" to make it work. We reported it to the office as we were leaving the next morning for maintenance. The campsite had a broken concrete pad, but it was level and easy to back into. The campground is about 15-20 minutes out of Owensboro in a beautiful farming area. It is quiet and peaceful, but like many campgrounds, the crowd, noise, and activity level picks up substantially on weekends. - WA4TG

Our stay was fabulous! We would highly recommend this place. Everyone is so friendly! Golf carts are allowed. We love riding the go carts & playing miniature golf. The pizza is yummy! They even have a church on Sunday mornings. Gorgeous sunsets!! This is definitely a place for Family Fun! - Kimberly Cool

We stayed here for 5 consecutive months while we searched for a house. It saddens me to see the way this place has gone down in the last 25 to 30 years. It was once a wonderful place although I'd never consider it to be a lake. Now it is full of abandoned buildings and needs some serious work. The laundry room is absolutely horrible and the bathrooms all need updating. Lots of sites hold water very badly and several ponds are stagnant and breed mosquitoes badly. If you're staying longer than a week you need to bring a mower and weed eater as we had weeds a foot and a half tall around our camper constantly. They weed eated twice in 5 months. It was bad. The playground is small and only has two things and the pool is way to small for this size of campground. As busy as this place is they can afford some updates and more activities such as a splash pad for kids and yard games etc The staff was friendly, I'm happy they allow golf carts and the price was good but that's the only positive things I can say. Look at your site before you book it because lots of them are deep in water when it rains - Blended family campers

Very quiet. The wagon wheels are difficult with a 32' trailer. I would try to get one of the full hookup pull thru sites, unless you have a shorter unit. Getting into the sites is very tight. They need to be larger in diameter. Everything is convenient for hooking up. Staff is very friendly and helpful. When coming into Boonville on hwy 61, don't turn onto Poplar. Its a very difficult turn onto a narrow street. I'd go through the town square and go straight onto another East bound street. Then turn left several streets down to get to Poplar. - chucky2

Nice campground with a big fishing and swimming lake, playgrounds, shelter houses, four rental cottages and an enclosed pavilion available to rent.
The only negative about this park is that the sites are gravel and there's very little of it. The area around the campers are very loose dirt that tracks into the camper. It would have been much worse had it been rainy and turned to mud. - kc9mls

A small, wooded, public park. My site was in the open. Some longer term guests were evident. Staff at the front desk were friendly. Flat gravel sites, I had to back into site #26 but thank heavens the site in front was open so I went in and back in straight. Good AT&T and Verizon signal, no wifi. - RVStudent

I stayed here two nights in Site 10 while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with a tow car. Don't get site 10! Or 1-12 for that matter. Best sites are in the 20s, 30s and 40s which are in the back of the park past the bath house. The campground is right off the road. It is buffered by a stand of trees but there is still lot of noise off US 41. However it is also very convenient for the same reason. This is a large CCC park with many day use activity areas and a first class museum on Audubon which is contained in a French chateau built by the WPA in the 1930s. The campground is definitely dated. It has narrow roads and narrow pads which are almost randomly placed. But the sites are paved, and there is a lot of nice grass and big shade trees and you don't at all feel like you are in the middle of a city. I was there in the middle of the week and there were many open spaces so it felt very spacious. With all the sites filled it would be very crowded. Make sure you have a long water hose. Spigots are close to random and often very far away and on the wrong side of the site. Mine was next to my neighbor's fire ring. Some sites are seriously not level. Some sites have adjoining car parking but some don't. There are many walking trails in the park but only one for dogs which is described as "fairly difficult." It was that and more. Wifi is a subscription service and costs $3.99 a day. Verizon service was excellent. There are separate tent sites. Didn't use bath house. Didn't use dump station -- sign said $5 to dump. Rate reflects Kentucky 10% senior discount. Doesn't include the $7.50 it costs to reserve the site. If you are coming during the week I suggest saving the reservation fee and just drop in and pick out a site. You are more likely to get something you like. - SoloRed

Audubon State Park has a lot to offer: camping, cabins, lake, golf course, and the museum. The campground, however, shows wear. It's a small campground, crammed next to a busy highway at the park's entrance. Many sites were deeply shaded and had paved pads, but the pads weren't very wide and some are quite short. Companion vehicle parking is available with some sites on a separate paved pad. Not sure that detail is noted on the reservation form, so it might be best to call. One bath house present and a small, one-hole dump station. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon, departed late Monday morning and never saw a host to check us in. There might have been camp wifi, but we didn't have the code. We paid for our night via the after hours drop box.
Parking at the museum is limited, but it's a short walk from the campground. Interior roads are quite narrow, so it'd be best to drive a tow around the park. We used this campground as an overnight stop because we had a favorable impression when we stayed at the cabins 10 years ago. Now I'm not so sure I'd return again with an RV due to the cramped and noisy conditions and overall wear of the property. - Flying Mantis

Audubon State Park is a little funky in its location: the park is located on US 41 in Henderson, but when you pull in, you go from city to wilderness in about 100 yards. The gal at the check-in gate allowed us to check in early. Sites are crowded together pretty close. Our site, number 5, had electricity and water, but the spigot and electric box were located about 40 feet from the camper. Shower houses were dated and in need of a little cleanup. Could've been because it was Sunday morning, but showers were a bit dirty. I think this state park would be one that would appeal to those who want the "away from it all" experience, yet want city amenities like restaurants and night life. Ellis Park is located 3 miles north of the state park for Horse racing fans. - Prairie Bayou
