The RV campground is essentially a huge graveled parking lot with electric and water thrown in. There is a jumping zone, basket ball, and volley ball courts that will keep the kids and teens busy for some time. If you are traveling through and need a place to stop by for night then perhaps this will be convenient & functional....

We stayed here while visiting Mammoth Cave and some other sites. It was very nice. It was off-season so there were only a few people staying there. We need a pull-thru site, and we were able to get one in the woods. This seems to be a rare thing with a motorhome. The interstate was nearby but we couldn't hear...

We were traveling through Kentucky on our way to Atlanta with our motorhome. It was getting that time of night to stop and just sleep for the night. We found this KOA, and the lady said she would wait for us to arrive. We just need water and Electricity because it was just over night. The price was $28, not...

Unfriendly desk clerk could not even smile or say hello. Smelly showers. Eroded site. Constant LOUD highway noise. No room for our trailer. Dilapidated and depressing. Not worthy of the KOA brand at all! We got a refund and left.

worst KOA of our trip and we stayed at 7! We knew the location was close to the Interstate but wow...The farm animals provided comic relief from the heat but then not everyone would find roosters crowing at 545A amusing. There was no cable, (also no "air" channels available in this area), dirty pool (glad it was closed), disinterested staff...

The RV campgrounds was well kept. It was on the side of a hill over looking a valley. It was beautiful and green. The person at the desk was helpful. It's a nice CG to stay if you are visiting the caves.

This is by far the worst KOA I've ever stayed at. Our site was right next to the farm animals and expressway. We woke to either an obnoxious rooster, donkey, or traffic on the interstate. I'm pretty sure we had a view of the "adult superstore" sign. Perhaps if the price point were lower this place would be ok for...

We made a reservation weeks in advance to camp here for a week. Love camping in our travel trailer but not in an open field with some gravel thrown down to look like a campsite. They tried to put us in the "overflow area" with no shade trees or anything to resemble camping for a week. We immediately went back...

Koa is my favorite place to stay when on vacation. Their cabins are just perfect for our family. We get to enjoy the outdoors without the outdoor problems. This particular koa was one of the best. It had a jumping pillow, mini golf, pool, and a petting farm. Always a great place to stay.

We brought our Travel Trailer down from Cincinnati. Being so close to the highway, it was really easy to find/access the campground. We stayed over the 4th of July. The campground had fireworks and a pig roast. Really great. Kids loved the jumping pillow, and we caught several nice fish in the fishing pond. The pool was small, but refreshing....
