Hard to rate. Great if you like rustic. It's affordable and peaceful, but there are lots of bugs, restrooms are dated, it's 30 amp only, there's no sewer (except site 1), and the "dump station" is a challenge to use. Trails were so overgrown as to be unusable. Pads are extensions off the edge of the parking lot/boat ramp. The online registration will allow you to park a 45' rig on a 15' pad, so use your best judgement. I think sites 2-5 are 15' long and the rest are 20', but you can hang off both ends a few feet. On the other hand there is usually availability, AT&T and Verizon worked well, and despite all the trees I could get satellite. Staff stop by often and everyone was super nice. - Keeping up with the Joneses

This is a nice county park just a few miles from town. I was in the area to visit an old friend so the location was perfect. Facilities are older, but not run down, it looks like they do their best to keep the place up. The campground is small with a limited amount of camping pads. I got the impression that it is mostly used by locals for weekend camping. - Mark Ford

We stayed in this lovely little campground for a week and had a peaceful, relaxing stay. The park managers were hard working, very helpful and accommodating. The sounds of the waterfall over the dam and geese calling to each other was more than we expected on this trip but coupled with the Kentucky hospitality of our hosts at the park, by far one of our greatest trips. This Michigan family is impressed! Try it! You will like it! - Georgeann

A little bit out of the way for an overnight stop, but it filled the bill. It must fill up in the summer with campers who enjoy boating and hanging out on the weekends. The sites are in a grass field with good hookups for each. Since the sites are on grass, there is some rutting at the sites and the dump station. The man doing the check in was friendly and helpful. The restroom/shower room was clean. We avoided the first turn to that leads up to the campground from the marina (a bit steep and between trees) and went the long way around towards the back of the campground. - LatLongJohn

Don't follow the GPS, it will try to take you through a subdivision. Follow the brown signs once you get into town; they take you straight to it. The interior road was narrow with speed bumps, so while big rigs could get in there, it wasn't the easiest to navigate. It was super muddy, and made for difficult entry/exit of the rv. There was a very 'nature' smell everywhere - okay, it smelled like dog poop. Our rig was too big to use the dump station; couldn't make the curve into the pullout. - DaBlairs

We were in site 12 and it was spacious and very close to a nice playground, great for our toddlers and our space was big enough to throw frisbee to our two medium size dogs. Nice neighbors. Only rating at 9 because when it rained and it got super muddy but I guess campground can't keep the rain away. - TravelingSnook

The bathrooms needed a good longer power wash with bleach. The park has big spaces and paved roads. Overall we liked our stay except for the bathrooms. Hopefully it was just the time of year. - Quintin

Such a beautiful, well-kept park. The only issue is lack of connectivity. The sites all appear pretty level and are quite spacious. It was a convenient base for visiting both Louisville and Lexington. - CnCOntheGo

Excellent campground! The whole place was very clean and well taken care of. After walking the dog around the entire campground looking at different sites, I feel this site is the best. All of the sites look good but when I go camping I try to get as far away from people as possible. Secluded, level, VERY easy to back in, plenty of room around the site with only a neighbor on one side and they are far away, site is toward the end of a turn around but there are only 6 sites in the entire loop. We would definitely stay here again and try to get site 41. - B and V travels

Large state park with paved roads and sites. Sites are spacious. - Bjb1775

Nice park, with friendly and helpful people. The roads are paved, as were the sites. Being from out of state, we had to pay $9, for a permit to enter the park. This was a one time fee we paid for the week we were there. All the connections were easy to locate and easy to get connected. We noticed that some sites had patios, but we didn't. Our site had a picnic table and a fire ring. All the sites we saw had picnic tables, while some sites had fire rings and some didn't. Satellite and OTA TV worked well, as did out AT&T phones and hot spots. We did find that when leaving the campground, our GPS wanted us to turn left on the main park road, to get out of the park, but there is no park exit that way. There is only one way in and out of the park. If you plan on being in the park near Halloween, you might call and see when they are doing their Halloween celebration, as they allow trick or treaters, and they close down traffic in and out of the campground, so the trick or treating can be done safely. This is a nice touch, since it is the first park we have seen that allows trick or treating. We would stay here again. - Bbtj

What an awful place. Then again, this isn't a campground; it's basically a few spots in a parking lot that have hookups on the side for RVs. How they get away charging so much is beyond me. I guess most of the folks who use the sites particulate in events at the expo center, arena or the amusement park next door (which shares an entrance gate). The design of the hookups is atrocious as the water was on one side, the electric was about 50 feet away on the other side and the sewer was in the middle. The sewer was also encased with a metal plate - we needed a screw driver to pry it open. We had to park at a really strange angle to get everything hooked up - it will be a real nightmare hitching back up due to the angle we're at. There is only an attendant on duty who didn't seem to know much of anything except how to run the credit card. The office he worked in was a 6x6 box with no windows and filthy (like a mechanic's office). The adjacent rest rooms and showers were no better. This is also right behind Kentucky Kingdom amusement park so it was very noisy with music blaring. Also in the landing path for the airport, so constant planes flying overhead. We only came here because due to a huge hot rod rally in town next week, everything else was booked up. We could only stay 2 nights anyway, as this area will be cleared and we'll need to move to their dry camping area, where all the hot rodders will be. - cherylbrv

We camped here because we were attending an event at the Expo Center and wanted to stay as close as possible. We had a full hook-up with 50 amp service, water and sewer. The staff couldn't be nicer - met us at the office to get us checked in and allowed us to stay as late as we wanted on our departure date. We had a parking pass and could come and go as we pleased. Keep in mind that this is a parking lot - no typical campground amenities - but has 24 hour security and is convenient to all of downtown Louisville. We were one of two campers on the lot; I imagine the lot gets crowded when bigger events are going on, but we had our choice of hook-up. The only negative was that the center is near a very busy airport! Would definitely stay here again. - Debbie13

Used this park because of it's location in the Louisville area. It's really not an RV park. It is a large parking lot with hookups. Most don't have sewer but a few do. There are no amenities, only hookups. The parking lot is used as the midway during the state fair in August. Other times it's available for camping. Most campers are there for some kind of a function on the fair grounds. Would probably be a good location for the Derby. - vidcity

First there are no signs. I was told to take exit 120 off I-65. There is no such exit. I called for instructions and was told when we got here to enter and go all the way around the park to our site on the left. That left the hook-ups on the wrong side so we had to make a very sharp turn and move a flower pot. The grass was so high we couldn't find the water. The park was junky and very run down. We would stay in Walmart parking lot before we would stay here again. - User1667

Needs a lot of work done to the sites. Weeds everywhere. Rock & grass sites. I didn't see any sites that looked like the photos on the website. Recommend keep driving. There is another campground right down the road. - Dixie-33 _home

The park does not look like the pictures seen on the web! The sites are just gravel thrown over grass and are NOT level. The whole place is rundown and a mess! Over priced for no amenities and it is rundown! RR tracks on the way to park scrapped our stabilizers! - Jolew

You're escorted to your site because it is so tight you couldn't see a number to save your backside! 40' fifth wheel - we had to be careful when putting out our awning - about 6" from neighbor's slide. Trains all night at the edge of the park, and planes land/take off overhead. On a positive note; a teeny bit better than a truck stop and staff meets you when you pull up to escort you and are friendly. The location is the only reason this park is able to fill up. Won't be coming back if we can even wedge out! Definitely not a relaxing campground - more of a place to park for a few hours sleep. - cajunsis

You're escorted to your site - because the park is so tight that you need it! 37' motorhome and when we opened our slides we had to be careful as they almost touched the next door RV. Had to move picnic table to open the slides. Loud trains all night at the edge of the park, and planes land/take off overhead. On a positive note, the park is within minutes of Louisville and the staff is friendly. The location is the only reason this park is able to fill up - and the only reason I'd stay here again. - Tiara38

This is a very crowded park and one we will probably not return to unless it is for a one day stay. We were escorted to our site. There is a convenience store and gas station onsite which is handy. You are close to many attractions. Our Dish satellite and Verizon worked well. - rolling homeless

Park is right across the street from Church Hill Downs. Kind of tight for a 40' 5'er but fit-had to back in from the street though. Not a bad neighborhood. We stayed there almost 2 weeks for the fair. Owner is very friendly and helpful. Was quiet at night. Would stay there again. - reviewer3

We didn't actually stay here, but we pulled in and looked around. Posting this review since I've seen others ask about it. Trackside is directly behind Churchill Downs, and the lady we spoke to on the phone was quite friendly. Those are the good things. On the other hand, it was basically someone's backyard with some older hookups, in what appeared to be a somewhat sketchy area. It was fenced in, though. The handle on our water hookup was broken, and the sewer hookup was under a broken piece of cinderblock. We decided to leave, but it might be okay for a couple days if you're looking for the closest possible park to Churchill Downs. It was tough backing our 31' in from the street, and around the back of the garage. - NH Camper

Nastiest manager you'll ever meet. Trash everywhere. Dangerously exposed wires and sharp rusty pipes coming out of the ground in play areas that said manager refuses to remove. Floods every time it rains. Mud and dead grass everywhere. All concrete pads are crumbling. It is a stone's throw from 2 interstates which are VERY LOUD. Water is off more than it is on sometimes. The office is closed more than it is open and did I say the nastiest manager you'll ever meet? Go somewhere else. - HoosierRV

This is a mobile home park that is converting some spaces to RV. The site conversions are not exactly RV friendly. Narrow concrete strips for the wheels, the jacks are on soft ground and the sewer is located under the RV. The streets have many speed bumps, many of the remaining mobiles homes should be removed and it is very noisy. There is constant noise from I-65, train horns several times a day and night, and the occasional plane traffic; not a peaceful location. We stayed here for 3 months while working for Amazon; the cost of the site was paid for by Amazon. This may develop into an acceptable RV park in a few years but it will always be noisy. The park is on the northern outskirts of Clarksville so shopping and other services are a few miles away.
The sites are level with broken concrete patios and grass areas. No tables or fire rings. 50 amp electrical.
The water is good quality city service but use a filter. The pressure fluctuates, especially in the morning.
There is no park provided cable or wifi. Service may be obtained from Time Warner. Typical OTA channels.
There is no laundry, pool, showers, park activities, etc. The staff is helpful, when asked, but otherwise they are rarely seen.
A mailbox can be purchased from USPS. UPS and FedEx deliver here, but have difficulties locating Lakeview Dr.
We will probably not be stay again as we have no desire to work for Jeffersonville Amazon (SDF8) again. - Wiyndog

Great in/out pull thru system so you'd never have to unhook which is a blessing for 1-2 nights if you're not planning on it. BIG signage off main road, clean lanes, HUGE space that is currently under renovation adding more services. Lots of space to walk the dogs and it's pretty clean for the current construction. Attendants take you right to your site, front desk staff was great. We chose only 50 amp and water as we are only here two nights. Have our own Wifi so we didn't link up to theirs. Store is stocked pretty well. Located adjacent to a nice neighborhood and backing onto a gully & green space, not too much road noise at all. Sites are pretty close together but there's about 15 feet between so you can get your slides out all the way and still feel semi-private. - Williamses Wander
