This is an excellent, old-fashioned, simple RV Park. Close to the interstate, but without any road noise. Fern Lake made for beautiful grounds. The showers were hot, clean and private. The only draw back was no cable, but the open sites could easily receive TV if carrying a satellite. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here in a Class A (40') RV. We actually have spent 6 moths here. The rate is $525/month including electricity (50a), water and sewer hookup. When we checked in, there was an issue with the East side of the park, so we were "staged" in a different area until the issue was (quickly) resolved. It's a nice campground. Attentive owners. Clean facilities. Although there is a Pilot Truckstop close by, there is very little noise that can be heard in the campground. We would return here again if there was a need. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

I was here for work, but there are several restaurants in Paducah, KY that will meet most culinary needs. The Mexican Restaurant across the road was good food! The Waffle Hut - open 24 hours - (also across the road) was a great place for breakfast. dinner? ....there are better options.

Loved this place! It's a bit on the tiny side, but we were able to pull through our motor home with a trailer - no problem. The little lake is perfect for walking the dogs around (thank you to other dog owners for picking up after your pets. It was very clean!) A bonus was how close (yet still quiet) it is to places to eat. The Mexican Restaurant across the street was surprisingly good. There is a Waffle Hut, Subway, Mini-mart all within a short walk. We've stayed at other campgrounds in Paducah, but this will be our place of choice. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

We spend a week here for the April quilt show every year. It's been 15 years now and looking forward to next year. Owners are friendly and helpful. Grass is cut, nice walk around the lake. Quiet even with the Pilot truck stop next door. Quilt show facilities are 15 minutes away as are good restaurants. Cracker Barrel, Red Lobster, MacAllisters, Captain D's, Olive Garden and others. Also, Kohl's, Bed Bath and Beyond, WalMart, etc. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

A small but well kept campgrounds with a few long term sites but plenty of room for us and others who arrived after we did. Owner checked us in and escorted us to our site. In the section we were assigned, there was only gravel. No grass between sites. No picnic tables and no fire rings/fires. Good water pressure. Asked owner for map of campgrounds but he said none had ever been made. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Campgrounds is located in NW portion of Paducah off I-24 & exit #3. Across the street (walking distance) is a great Mexican restaurant. Wifi was strong and uninterrupted. Bath house in center of complex but we did not use it.

Good campground choice for visiting Paducah. Comfortable and easy to find. Small, privately owned with friendly staff. Level gravel sites and well mowed property. While not a fancy resort-type CG, it was a good choice for our weekend visit. Quiet and safe. The lake was a bonus feature - pretty and a nice walk around. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a good stop for an overnight stay. The park is easy on and off of I-24 and easy to get into and out of. The area where we stayed was more like a large gravel parking lot with full hookups. We were too long for these sites with our tow, but the attendant put us towards the end of the row so no one needed to go around us. He was very nice. As close as we were to the highway it was very quiet. We travel through this way often and it is nice to be able to find places like this. Nothing fancy, but a nice quiet place to spend the night. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

If you can stay, be sure to go downtown and visit the murals and the quilt museum - even if you don't quilt. The Mexican restaurant across the street is excellent.

Stopped in for one night while on the road. What a great little campground! Staff is very friendly and the whole place is extremely clean. Some of the cleanest restrooms I've ever seen at a campground! You can tell that the owners and staff take pride in their work. I highly recommend Fern Lake Campground if you're ever looking for a campground in the Paducah area. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We were there so DW could visit the National Quilting Museum. This was convenient for us. Campground was well organized and had some great places for me to walk our dog while DW was at the Museum. We would definitely stay here again! We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Easy to find off the interstate and close to downtown Paducah. Sites are a decent size, owner was courteous and the campground is clean. The bathrooms are dated but very clean. This is not a fancy resort style campground, this is a great place to park for a night or 2 and enjoy Paducah. We were visiting family close by and we would happily stay here again.

Had a full HU 50 amp site. Had to use levelers as gravel site was not level. Owner lives on site and was very nice and gracious. He walked me to the site and made suggestions. Did not take time to tour the Campground but it appeared very nice. Close to interstate , fuel and food. A great location. We camped at Fern Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
