Beautiful campground! Love the lake and the animal area. They keep it very clean. My only complaint is the laundry room is very out-dated. 4 washers, only 1 worked and 2 dryers only 1 worked. We will camp here again.

Trash left in every fire pit from previous guest. No place at playground to sit and watch kids. Pool dirty. Mini golf hasn't been maintained for 20+ years. Staff not the friendliest, not rude, just not friendly. At other koa's we see workers consistently cleaning/maintaining campground throughout the week, not this one.

While the traffic noise from nearby Highway 65 was expected and tolerable, we found Horse Cave KOA in need of attention. We were particularly disappointed in the laundry facility, which had 1 of 4 operable washing machines and 1 of 2 working (heated) dryers. On a positive note, it is centrally located to many area sites, making it a convenient stop.

Seemed the Koa was under staffed Pool was not safe to swim in for the first few days of our week there. 2 of the 4 washing machines are out of order & not clean womens washroom had a a toilet out of order & the hand drier was broken so owners swtiched to paper had a problem with the stand up pipe for sewer it was too tall should have been ground level it took 3 days to fix that got a $12 refund :)

Everything in the camp was great. We like the staf and next time we will come only to the camps of KOA. Thank you for your investments in the camps.

GPS location address sent us on a wild goose chase 10 miles into the back country Not a road to drag a 36 foot fifth down in the dark single lane to KOA address and it was just a bush lot Finally found it at 9:30 pm we had called ahead to book so no worries ( so I thought) not even a site listed where they wanted us to pull in as the office was closed so we just picked a empty one Never again

This is not up to KOA standards.We left early lost out 9000 points that we were using for a discount night. Pool was drained when arrived on Monday and was getting refilled.Could not swim till Wed.No activites were plannned.Women's restroom by the time we left only had one working toilet. Hardly any tp or paper towels on hand, Electric hand dryer never worked. Showers had hard time getting to work

The condition of the pool water was only fair...too green and cloudy. Other than that, the stay was very nice.

Easy to access, sites are spacious, very well maintained grounds are a great place to take a morning stroll. Tiering of sites leads a non crowded feeling and very quiet.

Facilities were clean and staff great but WAY TOO CLOSE TO THE INTERSTATE!

All 50 Amp sites are on the side of a hill. had to put 6in ramps under rear wheels and 12in blocks under right jacks. tried to cancel second night was denied

The campground and restrooms were clean. We had a nice back in full hook up site. The area was well maintained. The pool was green. That was disappointing, but the kids swam in it anyway. The area and seating around the pool was nice. Playground was great for the kids. The staff was friendly. All in all for the money it wasn't a bad place to stay.
Jul 28, 2013
Friendly and helpful stay. Loved the activities they had there for the children. Negative would be the noisy interstate..
Jul 27, 2013
This is mostly an unremarkable KOA. The pool appears to be shared with the hotel off of the street in front of it, you will hear highway road noise as it's just a few hundred yards from the expressway, and the sites are average. It's clean and well maintained though. We stayed just to have easy access to Mammoth Caves. You could do worse.
Jul 27, 2013
Loved this KOA, staff was very nice and helpfull, very clean, our kids enjoyed all the attractions, very closed to a lot of them, thanks!
Jul 26, 2013
Worst KOA we have stayed at. Dirty pool and bathrooms. Bathrooms out of order. Very disappointed...especially with pool since it was very hot during our stay. We expect a lot more from a KOA than from other campgrounds...this one does not meet those standards.

friendly people with comfortable camp sites with electric and wifi; kept the family up to date on my trip, what could be better?
Jul 24, 2013
you need a bigger sign at the entrance just off the freeway.

Was very clean and well maintained. The staff was attentive and friendly. Fun activities for the whole family. The kids loved the friendly deer that walked through being petted.

It was a nice campground! Sadly our pull through site was hardly a camping site. We were basically on the roadway camping. Did not enjoy the campsite at all but did love the farm environment and animals were awesome, mini golf was great, bathroom was clean, pool was great! Other then the campsite itself the campground was great! Would stay again with a better site!
Jul 23, 2013
Very clean. The Jellystone had a much larger offering for the kids and might stay there in the future.

The little ranch behind us with ponies, donkeys, pigs, chickens, rabbits and ducks was a lot of fun for the kids. We did have a large mud hole on our site and all the other sites in that row that could have been graveled and been much cleaner.
Jul 22, 2013
Very friendly, clean well maintained, easy in and out.

The sites close to the interstate were very unlevel. We did not have enough wood with us to level our new trailer. We could not get enough signal strenth to access the internet. We were very disappointed at this KOA.
Jul 18, 2013
Had a great time. I love all the trees and farm animals. It was a perfect place to stay to go caving. Thanks!
Jul 17, 2013
This is the 4th time we have stayed here. Each time has been a great experience. We enjoy coming to the Cave area, but don't want to be where all the traffic is. The staff is great, the facilities are clean, and most of all we truly enjoy staying here.
Jul 16, 2013
Loved it, the staff was very pleasant and helpful on anything we needed. Thank you.

This was our first stay. Overall we really liked the campground. We booked a 30amp back-in space which were all level, had good space between campsites and nice mature trees to shade the summer sun. The "farm" onsite was fun to go and visit the animals. The pond, pool, playground, bathrooms were all nice. Only issue was highway noise but I wouldn't let it keep you away. Great place!

Liked the campground and the kids really enjoyed the patting farm. Only concern is the lack of signage when getting off the freeway showing where the KOA is located.
Jul 14, 2013
we requested a pull thru full hook up, the site we were in was not great. I think they had just had sewer put, in the ground around the campsite was torn up and there was red clay everywhere. our campsite was also next to a smelly sewer pump and they have a mini farm on the campgrounds, the chickens and roosters roamed around the campsite, annoying. Easy access to the highway but that is all.

Great, thanks. There was a bit of trash at the site when we got there. We left it clean.
Jul 12, 2013
It was a very noisy campground. We could hear the traffic from I-65 all night. It would have been helpful to have an escort to our campsite as it was confusing reading the numbers on the posts.
Jul 10, 2013
Too many people and vehicles in sites w/vehicles parked 1/2 on the road. 7/4 weekend 1 toilet in ladys room and 1 washing machine out of order. Womans rest room dirty. Many attended fire works sunday morning no toilet paper or towels in rest room. A very long walk to the dumpster. Bees in the wood marking off our site.
Jul 09, 2013
Location is beautiful, grounds well maintained. Negatives: very small store (not many supplies) and bathrooms were not well maintained (one stall out of order the entire stay, hand dryer out of order, out of paper towels, dirty floors).
Jul 08, 2013
it was ok. We did not get a great spot, which was part of the challenge. It was near where we wanted to be, so that helped a lot.
Jul 08, 2013
Nice place. Would stay again. Just hope it doesn't rain as much. I loved the sewer connectionm that most camps don't have
Jul 07, 2013
I think they are trying hard but our site was not level enough that we could dip the front of the trailer to make it level. They need more help with layout and construction. We had one of the newly constructed sites. The cuts should have been deeper at the top of site and the fill higher at the bottom. I hope they work to correct the problem as the location is great to visit Mammoth Cave.

We really liked the relaxed atmosphere of the camp grounds. Our grand kids loved the animals and were sad to leave the baby ducks and bunny. Thanks for a great weekend.
Jul 02, 2013
We reserved a full hook up site for our travel trailer and was given a site that did not fit our camper. Then the dump station is on an angle so the tanks are not properly emptied. The pool is cloudy and seems to have not been cleaned. The site we were given was nice and it had a nice proximity to area attractions.
