  • We found this place by chance and I'm happy we decided to check it out. My favorite part was the candle making exhibit and the axe throwing (don't remember the name but you had to sign a waiver to thr...  more »

  • This was the second time I have come to the reenactment. I have learned something new each time. The fort does a good job condensing the story of the 11 day siege into a 1 hour program. There are othe...  more »

  • Nice campground. Some power issues with electricity. It's a "no frills" campground. No pool or lake. There is a county pool/water park within walking distance and the Kentucky River is within walking distance, however. Clean park and old, but as clean as they can be showers/bath houses. A few full hook ups, mostly are electric/water with 50 or 30 amp. About 200 spots I would guess. Mostly level, some look to be very unlevel, so I would check out my spot first. Staff are very friendly. The actual Fort is about a 1/4 mile away and is very neat. They dress up in period attire and show how life was like.. churn butter, weaving , making candy, etc. Good for all ages.
  • I had not been there since I was in elementary school many years ago. It is even better than I remember. There is now a film to see that helped with the history. The demonstrators were very willing to share their knowledge. It was fun throwing an ax at a target. Pleasant way to spend an afternoon.
  • Great campground the on site store is really convenient. The mini golf is really fun as well.
  • Overrun with ferrell cats and racoon's that are not at all afraid to keep you from having a fire in the evenings. They become very active at night and will chase you growling. Also full price admission to the pool is ridiculous for campers and it is only 3.5' at the deepest location. Also the pool manager was a very rude person unless you were her local friend. The Fort only had 4 cabins occupied by artisans that were not that knowledgeable or interested in talking to visitors. Also charged full price (over$50) for the fort that was 80% empty/closed. Poorly managed park. Grass overgrown and not astitically pleasing. Highway traffic noise is also very noticeable and makes it hard to sleep. Stay away if you want to relax and get what you are paying for.
  • Stopped here 15 min before closing on a whim. Was a pleasant little village with activities. Would like to return when it's in full swing
