One of the best state parks I have ever stayed at. Located on a high bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. This is a location of a former Civil War Fort, interesting history. Campground is very clean and well kept, very clean shower and toilet facility. I had a "premium" FHU site that had a view of the Mississippi River. There are 10 FHU sites that cost $28 and 25 W/E sites that cost $20. Campsites are asphalt and will require leveling. Reservations needed and must be made through Reserve America, reservation fee applied. Several playground areas and several reserveable pavilions for group functions. A group camp area is available also. There is a museum and a snack shop that has hamburgers, hot dogs, soft drinks and snack items. WIFI is available for a fee (all Kentucky state parks have it). I didn't know where the check in office was but when I drove in to look around one of the workers saw me and took care of it. He later gave me a tour of the campground on his golf cart. There area several porch swings located in the park to view the river. The town people are mostly river barge workers. There are no restaurants nearby and no grocery stores either. About 15 miles to nearest one so take enough food for your stay.

We devoted nearly one blog post on the drive to this State Park and Campground. We were nervous it would be a terrible experience, but it turned out to be one of our favorite state parks! Our arrival onto the actual campground was a bit shaky as there was no one around, initially. We found our site and were about to pull onto it when not only the camp hosts pulled up in their golf cart, but so did the lawn maintenance man, who asked if he could mow it first! Now that was a reception. We ended up really enjoying the camp hosts and know they made our stay enjoyable. The only thing that could have made it better would be sign on the office door that they will return at XX time. It was a small campground and if one made a reservation, you'd know your site #, which we did.
This was an absolutely beautiful and VERY well-maintained State Park. Granted, it is small, so that may help. We just loved EVERYTHING! We do like to hike, and while the hiking was not challenging, we found great paths on hollowed grounds. I read reviews others wrote about the "hiking" and one has to be adventuresome to find a more challenging area than what is the most well known.
No negatives! Just loved everything. We wrote three blog posts, attached.
