“Make a reservation ”

Reviewed Jun 06, 2018

Overall Rating

We didn’t have reservation when we arrived, so we spent our first four days in the primitive electric section of the park. It turns out that our site had access to water, as well. But no picnic table or fire ring. Also, there are no defined spaces in that area, so people can pull in close to you if they want to. Think of it as a big g... more

“Nice camping close to Lexington”

Reviewed Jun 17, 2017

Overall Rating

Walk up sites available in the summer. Nice atmosphere, lots of kids running around having a good time. Tons of sites (300+) but good spacing between sites. Some trees, no views. Horse museum across the way. On site activities - pool and tennis. Nice facilities. Wifi was okay close to the bathhouse. Something wrong with the security se... more

“Beautiful park in a beautiful area ”

Reviewed Apr 04, 2017

Fairly well maintained park, lots of green. Interior roads easy to navigate, nice playground and pool area (although at the time of our stay it was not filled). W/E only at the sites, water at ultra high pressure. 2 dump stations in the park. Sites are long and paved asphalt, however many were slanted/canted making leveling a chore. Th... more

“Large sites, ask for AAA discount”

Reviewed Jan 22, 2017

Overall Rating

Stayed here Jan 21, 2017. Only one of the inner loops was open, and one bathroom. Maybe 6 other people staying here. Since only the one loop was open, pretty much everyone had a large view of the playground. There were also bright lights on at the playground that were not necessary after 8 pm, as no one was there. Bathrooms were c... more

Although this is a state park, it feels much more like a commercial park with the way it’s laid out, and with its amenities (swimming pool, big playground, golf carts, camp store, laundry, etc.). It’s an easy walk from the campground to the Kentucky Horse Park and International Horse Museum, which are well worth visiting, even if you’... more

Beautiful tree shaded camping site, paved lot, 50 amp service and watch out for the the high pressure water. We would have stayed longer if we could have. Miles of pave road throughout the park for bicycles and walking. Everything in the park was clean, crisp and GREEN! We loved seeing the horses, Lexington and all the activities of ... more

“Great base for exploring Lexington anytime of the year ”

Reviewed Feb 11, 2016

Overall Rating

So we were here in early February and had it mostly to ourselves. It's a huge campground with a pool and playgrounds, but our main reason for picking it was location. 30 mins to Woodford Reserve and the beautiful Versailles Rd, although we found out too late that we should have stopped for lunch at Wallace Station. The horse park i... more

“A nice park in an awesome location”

Reviewed Dec 03, 2015

Overall Rating

First of all, there are three options for camping here: the regular sites with paved pads, picnic tables, and water & electric hook-ups, the primitive electric area which is an open layout with shared electric hook-ups, and the primitive electric area which is a giant open field with no hook-ups. We choose the last option and enjoyed 9... more

“If you are into horses and in Kentucky, this is where you want to be….”

Reviewed Feb 11, 2015

Overall Rating

The Horse Park Campgrounds entrance is like driving into a college campus: rolling hills of green (excuse me, maybe it's blue) grass. A winding drive takes you to the center of concentric circle access roads that spread out into campsites that will give you plenty of room for your horse trailer. All the sites are large and pie shaped w... more
