“A pretty nice commercial park convenient for exploring the Lexington/Frankfort area”

Reviewed Nov 28, 2017

Overall Rating

If you're visiting the Lexington area because you want to visit the horse farms and bourbon distilleries, this is a great location. The campground was also close to downtown Frankfort, which offers all of the usual conveniences. As for access to downtown Lexington, it was about a 20 to 30 minute drive, depending on where we were headed. All in all, as close-to-the-city campgrounds go, it was pretty solid, and given all the other attractions that can be found nearby, it's a really good location.The site quality here was good. The sites had raised cement pads and patio areas, and included a picnic table. All utilities were well placed, and everything worked as expected. We had no trouble getting into our site and appreciated that the large trees that surrounded some of the sites were well maintained and, therefore, did not create an obstacle to parking.Overall, we were very happy with this park. While commercial campgrounds are never our favorites, this one was very well maintained, featured lots of open green spaces, and offered a reasonable distance between the sites. It was also conveniently located near the distilleries, a town where we could find everything we needed, and Lexington itself. We would stay here again.

“OK for overnite stay – restrooms/showers unexpected nice surprise ”

Most recent stay was overnight July 7th 2017 – I’m “late” in posting my review We camp in a Little Rig "Tear Drop” style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower ~ plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site ~ so our critique is focused in that area.

We did get close to the restroom/shower building – across the roadway from our site#12. The building was newly built with modern fixtures. Restrooms and showers are all in same large room separated by stalls with communal sink area in the open. Showers are full tiled floors and walls, with ample hooks and adjacent changing area with portable stool.in a private stall. Missing is a rubber floor mat as you exit the shower that would keep your feet off the wet floor. At the communal sink area, missing are convenience items like paper towels that could be used to help clean up after use – very messy and also need hooks between the mirrors for your hand towels and small shelves for your toiletries stuff.

Over all the camp was well groomed and tidy, with all level sites, a sparkling swimming pool, mini golf, kid’s playground etc. Our site was a W&E only but the camp had a nice dump station adjacent to the restroom/shower building. The roadways are paved as are some sites, while others were gravel and grass mixed. There is some grass covered greenspace between sites, not as tight or crowded as a KOA for example, but still narrow. Some sites like ours were in the hot sun with no tress for shade, while others had ample shade. It rained heavy during our stay for about 2 hours and our site had poor drainage leaving muddy pools of standing water although the sun helped to dry it up somewhat. This was an overnight stay camp for us; for others it might a destination because of activities and the fishing in the river that backs the camp. Also City of Frankfort isn’t far away and there are things to do and places to visit if you’re planning a vacation in the area.
