  • We stayed 5 nights, central location for the Bourbon Trail. The camp sites are opened but spaced apart.  more »
  • We just drove into the park on our way to some of the distilleries further to the south and west. Thought we might walk the dog a bit but the trail signs were a bit confusing despite the trail map I p...  more »
  • This park has something for all nature lovers. Great fishing, boating, camping facilities, and horse trails. There is a marina where you can bring your own boat or rent a boat/pontoon for a day.  more »

  • This is the only place that I take my kids camping. I have only had great experiences with the staff. They are friendly and knowledgeable and I always recommend this part for both boating and camping.
  • My rating is strictly based on the hiking trails. Coming here for boating is a totally different story and I had a great experience with that. I came out here to go hiking through the trails and they were a bit of a mess. I came out earlier in the year due to good weather so I'm sure that the trails hadn't been cleaned yet. I am a fairly experienced hiker/backpacker and am quite good at reading my location. My main issue was that the trail markers were very poorly placed and the map did not line up with them. There were trails that I came across that were not drawn on the map and many of the trail names were not the same as on the map. This is also a horse trail so you have to deal with that, which i'm sure is a much different experience than what I had as a foot hiker.
  • Very beautiful park. Went there for boating but unfortunately they closed at 4. Not many things to do there but great for boating, camping and horse riding.
  • Great place for fishing. Swimming from the shore can be challenging due to all the stick ups.
  • Some campgrounds attract people who like to camp. This campground seems to attract people who just don't want to pay for a hotel. Dirty, loud, lots of low-class behavior. And if you're going to run a generator ALL NIGHT, go camp next to the RVs they won't mind.
