Plenty of Green Grass, but narrow, uneven sites. Our Opinion: Recommend.  A convenient campground in the heart of Kentucky horse country, adjacent to an interesting attraction.

Date of Stay: May 20 through May 22, 2010.

Weather During Stay:  Moderate temperatures with a giant thunderstorm one night.

Site Description:  260 W/E sites (no sewer hookups at any site) are arranged in two sets of concentric rings.  All sites are back-ins, all 40-50 feet long, and very few are level.  Roads and sites are paved, but parking pads are extremely narrow, barely wide enough for an RV.  Plenty of grassy area between sites, though; no problems for slides or awnings.   Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. 

Some E only sites are available in a separate area, on grass.  Two large dump stations are available on site, along with bathhouses, laundry and a camp store (with ice cream).  We also noticed a honey wagon making the rounds.

Our Site and our Neighbor Rate: Standard sites are $27/night for 30/50 amp E and water.  That goes up to $35 on holidays and for special events (which means horse events).  10% discount for seniors, 62+ years.  Electric-only sites are $23/night.  Rates drop between Nov 1 and March 31.

Phone/radio/TV: Verizon phone signal was good, but our aircard signal was up and down.  Lots of trees mean you need to pick a site carefully for a roof-mounted satellite, but about a dozen channels were available on the antenna.  NPR is available at 91.3.  WiFi is available for an outrageous fee ($15/day, $25/week); we didn’t use it.

Elevation/Landscape/Terrain:  This is a slightly rolling, grassy park at 1,000 feet. Views are of other rigs, grass, and big green trees.

Lighting/Noise:  No bright lights bothered us at night, and the park was reasonably quiet by 9 or 10 pm.

Our row Favorite Sites:  No particular favorites here.  Very few sites are level; most big rigs either had wheels off the ground or up on blocks, or simply were not leveled (including ours).  Sites are not very long, so tow and towed vehicles are often parked on the grass.

Hiking/Walking:  Excellent!  This campground is immediately adjacent to the Kentucky Horse Park, with plenty of walking and, in season, great entertainment.

Comments: Too bad no effort was made to provide level campsites!  Still, the green grass and huge trees make a pretty campground, and the proximity to the Horse Park, Lexington’s premier equine facility, provides great entertainment.  Lots of horse people in the campground, zipping to and from the Horse Park in golf carts and on scooters.
