  • Our first camping trip at Nolin Lake State Park campground, it will not be our last. The campground was clean, quiet and large enough(approx. 30 sites). The bathhouse was very clean. The campground host was friendly and made rounds a couple times a day. We camped on site #21 with our 43' fifth wheel. It was easy to back into with plenty of parking space for our tow vehicle. Highly recommend giving this campground a try. WE'LL BE BACK👍👍👍
  • A clean park with plenty of boat ramps. I took my SUP boards out and I had no issue with other boaters. The beach area was also clean and family friendly
  • This is our favorite place to camp in Kentucky. The campsites are spaced apart more than others. It cost more to camp here compared to the other campgrounds on Nolin lake but it has classier and more respectful people.
  • We lost our receipt for a vacation planed for next month. One of our party got a Jury duty call and we needed that receipt to postpone service. Searched my inbox for email confirmations, tried to find the reservation with Reserve America. No Luck. Chester to the rescue! He pulled the reservation number, the receipt number AND even called Reserve America for me to have a duplicate receipt email to me. We can't thank him enough!
  • Used to be a nice place... Ran into trouble there so called park ranger... They sent someone out just to do nothing...i watch ed a guy put 6 bottles in the swimming area... Rangers said nothing they can do... Umm yea there is be a damn park ranger and fine his ass...
