General information: Located on the Kentucky River. 167 sites. Full hook-up and primitive camping available. Air-conditioned activities building and grocery. Showers, rest rooms, and laundry facilities. Junior Olympic-size swimming pool and child size pool. Miniature golf course. Open year-round.
While I have not stayed at the campground personally, I have been there many many times. The facilities are top notch and I've been impressed with the upkeep. It's also nice being close to the pool in the summer time.
The park itself is pretty good to the campers, too. They frequently host events that only registered campers can attend like parties, free putt putt, etc.

This place is so beautiful. It's a Victorian mansion where the guest is always treated very well. The hosts, Richard and Rita, are wonderful people and go out of their way to make you feel at home. The house was orginally built by the Bennett family (William) whose wife was Sarah Clay, daughter to Cassius Clay, a well known emancipationist. Construction began around 1889. Sarah often traveled to Europe with her father (who was also minister to Russia) and used her European influences to stylize the home.
The breakfast they serve is fantastic. Very gourmet. The rooms are decorated immpeccably. Another neat thing about the house is that the first Saturday of every month they host an English Tea. It's very charming-and more like a full meal. If you're in need of an interesting gift, the parlor has a small gift shop where many tea kettles and what-nots are sold, as well as items by local craftsmen.
Note: if you stay or go to tea, make sure you tell Richard and Rita that Rebecca says "hi"! :-)
