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

We have been coming here for a couple of years now. I feel like it has gone downhill recently. Rates have gone up, yet there isn't anything more that this place offers. They have two pools, but they have never worked. We are told every year "next year" the pools will work. I feel for what they are charging now they should be offering more. We have camped at Labor Day the last two years and each trip the power kept going out. My friend was even told by the managers that they thought someone was "messing with us", which makes no sense. Also told that we can only have four people on the site and it is $10 more per person above four people. Funny though because the rules given to me at check in clearly state six people. Seems like they are trying to nickle and dime the customers. And, on top of this, the management there got quite rude to my friends that we camped with - check out the campground's Facebook page and look at their responses to a "no star review" and see if that is how you wish to be treated at a place that you are trying to RELAX! From now on, we will be driving past this and on to the state park. My family and the three families that we camp with will never stay here again. Absolutely horrible customer service. - Laura Bond

We love state parks, and this one was quite nice. Our site (#33) had water and electric and those worked well. We had a clear shot of the sky for our roof-mounted satellite. Our Verizon signal was quite wonky, so we added to use our booster. It is a good spot to use as a base camp for seeing the sights in Louisville and Frankfort. NOTE: When making reservations, it shows that site 33 only has 30 amp electric.....there is BOTH 30 and 50 amp electric at this site. - henny38

We stayed here to visit Louisville & Lexington... that is about a 45 minute drive for each location - too and from so keep that in mind. The site was gravel and mostly flat, easy back in. The park was empty on the M,T,W but fills up for the weekend. There is a boatramp that is very well used. Site was large and quiet. - rbrown5305

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

Nice campground with spacious, level sites. Shower facilities nice but were not cleaned during the week in slow season. The park had limited staffing midweek, but contacts with staff were positive. Nice trails in the park and very nice frontage on the Ohio River. Good place to stay while visiting Louisville, KY. - West Side Gal

This is a State Park not far from Louisville, KY. We did not spend a lot of time in the park as we were visiting family in Louisville. The sites were fine and spaced out nicely. Ours was a bit short and we had to drive up into the site to park our tow vehicle. - TN Vogels

NOTE, site descriptions on line are not accurate. Many sites are not as long (driveway/ parking area) as described online. Also sites may be described as level yet they are not and may require blocking etc to get your rig level. Not a bad park but you could be surprised when you get there. We were able to change sites once we arrived but if that had not been available we would have lost our fees as the site we booked did not work for us (too short, not level). - Johnny xxxxx

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

Brooks RV covered our needs when we were in a pinch and needed to find a place in a very short time. The manager has been very easy to work with and the people we have met here have been friendly. There are several restaurants within a short drive. When back in this area we will consider coming back to this RV park. - Daniel Williams

keep on driving and find anywhere else to stay! This park is NOTHING as advertised or shown in the pictures. It is an unkempt and dirty park. There was so much dog excrement in our spot they had to get a wheelbarrow to remove it all and that was only after we asked! Of course they didn't get it all and the campsite stunk all all five days! We were stuck here due to it being Derby week and everything was sold out. We had a night free and the last one at their regular rate and still chose to leave two days early and forfeit them. Park is loud dirty noisy and disgusting planes directly overhead trains next to the park and the topper is that it's right next to the gun range please don't stay here! - Denandcher

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

This was an older, crowded RV park with limited amenities. But OH! The location is amazing! And the staff were superb! Knowledge, courteous, and went out of their way to be accommodating. We needed to be in downtown Louisville for an event, and we could not have been happier with this location. So, yes, it was tight, but we had 50 amp electric and FHU, and we fit in our spot and got in and out with no mishaps. All good. I would absolutely stay there again. - MerBee

Only complaint is it’s tight. Very convenient. 2nd street bridge doesn’t have tolls. Staff great. Trains didn’t bother us but have great sound proofing in our motorhome. Hardly ever heard an airplane. We asked for another picnic table and staff brought us one almost immediately. Girls in the store were extremely helpful with our reservations. Book early if you want to come to an event cause it fills up fast. We came for Bourbon and Beyond and reserved a month early. Don’t know what discounts but they charged us $45. Will stay here again for the convenience. It’s a place to stay for outside attractions. - C and L

Full, tight spaces, wooden picnic tables are rotting; store staff very easy to deal with, knowledgeable about the area. Store is staffed with RV supplies but light on food. Gas/diesel is right on property. - danettem

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
