  • The Kentucky Horse Park was very interesting. My favorite part was the Hall of Champions. The workers at the barn were very informative and very nice. I would recommend it to anyone!  more »

  • The Horse Park is an interesting concept, but it isn't the most entertaining place to visit. They have a few things to see early in the day so plan to go right when it opens. I have visited 3 times - ...  more »

  • Staff were all friendly and helpful. Sites were spacious -- lots of green space and trees which made for a very pleasant environment. Our kids loved the playgrounds (two within easy walking distance of one another). The bathhouse showers seemed really clean -- I was impressed. Overall it was a really nice campground. Even though the pool was closed (it was October after all...) that area looked clean and well kept. We didn't have time to check out the adjacent horse park as we were just there overnight and had other plans, but we've already put it on our to-do list for a future trip to see what the park has to offer. Definitely recommended!
  • My family has gone to the park about every year for the past 5 yrs. My children love seeing the horses and the shows. It is very clean and happy place. The employees are very knowledgeable, pleased to help you, and always have a smile on there face. It is relaxing and you never feel swarmed by people even on a holiday weekend. We just love goiong.😃

  • Pleasing to the eye, but insular localized staff. Had prepaid days, left in truck camper to horse park, got back 2 hours later and my rain tarp covered large pile of firewood was taken. Found it days later in camp host's site!!! Reported to camp office and received bad attitude and a threat to call police on me!!! I requested it be returned but they put it in the wrong campsite. You would think they would know where they got it from and put it back there so I told her the second time to please have him move it to my campsite where he got it from and she copped an attitude with me again will never camp here again. Too hillbillay for this Angelino.
