This was my first stay at a KOA. From start to finish it was a great experience. Staff helped me make a reservation just right for my group's special needs. The restroom facilities were clean and adequate. The camp store was well-stocked and the staff were very friendly. Proximity to Lake Cumberland will certainly bring us back to this KOA.

Not up to KOA Standards. Friendly staff, but poor layout. Poor traffic flow. No Shade in our area. No Trash Pickup and Dumpster not easily accessible. Electrical Issues.

Would be 5 Stars except the Wifi listed on the website is only available at the picnic tables around the office, not at individual sites. otherwise everything was great!!
Jul 24, 2016
Not a true KOA experience. Poor roads, small sites and unkept. Strange one way road to A loop if first site 114 is rented. No wifi as advertised. Clean pool but needs cosmetic repairs.

I was very unhappy due to the people in the camper next to us was very loud, they were shooting off fireworks and they parked their truck in the spot we were suppose to. I will never be back to that KOA ever.

This is a larger KOA but seems more intimate because of the setting. Some of the facilities are older and in need of some repair (bathroom stall locks?) but the people make up for any deficiencies in the camp! One of the best.

Great facility and staff!

My family had an awesome time as always. There is so much to do to keep the kids occupied from swimming, bike riding, put put golf, volley ball, basketball, they even had live music which was awesome. The adults really enjoyed the opportunity to get some dancing in while camping. Wonderfully completely satisfying weekend of camping.

Loved having the extra bathrooms near the tent sites. It was very convenient. All the people who worked there were very friendly.

Stayed in cabin...it was very buggy with webs and bugs everywhere. A little TLC would go a long way. Bottom of door was dry rotted and big gap. Large wasp nest next to door lock. The lock did not work most of the time and even requested another key. The pool was filthy with mokd in sides and lots of floating hair. This place was probably nice 20 yrs ago but really needs some money put in it.

I don't know what the bad reviews are talking about.extremely clean,extremely nice staff,plenty for the kids to do.only negative was no grill grate on the firepit.we got rv spot and cabin and loved both!will definitely be back

The internet should be strong enough to receive at each campsite and not have to be at the pool or office.
Jun 21, 2016
People are nice but took a lot of blocks to level motorhome, picnic tables are rough,water was brown
Jun 19, 2016
Staff was very friendly, campsite was big and easy to get into with 35' travel trailer. Unfortunate pool was down for a few days when temp was 95, but not their fault. Overall good place.
Jun 18, 2016
we were downa big hill and away from everything, All gravel, little grass. no wi-fi and was advertized to have it. But the people were great and very helpful. The park does need some help.
Jun 13, 2016
Amenities and staff were excellent. We hope to be back many more times this summer.

The office staff was super helpful and friendly! They kept the restrooms so clean for a holiday weekend and it made the trip so much better. They only complaint I have is that the sites we were staying on we're not graded and didn't have enough gravel. So when it rained we had so much mud and staying water it was hard to enough the sites.
Jun 01, 2016
Roads and bathrooms/showers very poor

the campsites were very muddy because it rained which no one can control but also had a lot of gravel wash-out and large mudpits that had been that way for long periods it looked like.
May 31, 2016
very friendly staff, helpful and responsive to requests. Clean surroundings and well kept facilities. Nicely wooded grounds with various types of camp sites available. We will be back!!

My family and I have been to 2 different campsite;zilpo & lake Cumberland resort, and so far KOA is a winner.Hospitality is world class and security is top notch. This site made my family and I feel like we were camping back home in Kenya at Crayfish campsite on lake naivasha, kenya. Awesome experience.The only con was the restroom. They need to centralize the restrooms for convenience at night.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay. Peaceful get away. Spent most of our time swinging in our hammock. Most of the caperswe merry were nice. Definitely will be back
May 31, 2016
The campground was clean and well maintained, but the bathrooms were tiny and there was always a line to use them. I would stay at another KOA but not that one again.
May 31, 2016
wonderful time, very safe and secure. I forgot to tell the office but all the running water in the camp sites looked like milk, not sure why.
May 31, 2016
Full hookup is nice. Price is high. Charges extra money per person for more than two people. We had a very bright light on a pole above our site that was very annoying when trying to sleep or have a fire at night. Staff is nice.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks you for staying with us. The safety of our guest is of great importance to us, therefore several security lights are scattered throughout the park on photoelectric eyes and cannot be turn off.
May 31, 2016
Got to our site had reserved 2 sites with electric and water only 1 of our sites had electric and it didn't work had to run an extension to another pole they were accommodating and nice and gave us another site then at the end

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We apologize for any inconvenience encountered during your stay. We did everything we could to accommodate your group including providing a total of 4 sites for your use.

Our campsite was not a real site. The KOA employee had to go get us a fire ring which ended up being a bunch of rocks. All other sites had a metal fire ring.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us. I'm sorry your site did not meet your expectations. This is one of our better sites. We have both metal and fire pit building stones purchased from Lowes for our fire pit rings.
May 26, 2016
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We loved the campground area and had a wonderful experience. Only negative was that the picnic tables were in poor shape, but we had tablecloths and extra towels to put on the bench area and it did not detract from our experience.

We stayed here last year several times and they still gave us what we needed. Time for us. Relax and recharge. Looking forward to next visit.
May 16, 2016
Nice and relaxed in a beautiful woods setting. Got everything we needed except they don't sell propane😢
May 11, 2016
Great time of year to stay. Very friendly & helpful
May 07, 2016
Pleasant host, clean lodge and bathrooms. BUT the sites were nowhere near legal, small turning area we had to turn around to get out the next morning. The host assigned spots but gave us the option to pick any spot in the section, no doubt she was aware of the poor sites.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We allow campers to select their site if possible only to benefit the camper- some like under trees, some do not, some like close to the store some like a more secluded site.

Nice relaxing area. Very friendly staff.

Great place good people can't ask for much better .
Apr 11, 2016
I'm not sure how KOA could claim this campground. It's in desperate need of road and site repairs. RVs/trailers larger than 20ft should stay away. It's difficult to maneuver out of the campground and the ditch at the entrance/exit is dangerous.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Our roads did suffer this winter and were in need of grading. We have a variety of site with the longest being 70 ft. All roads have since been graded. We apologize for your inconvenience.

Overall, pleased w stay. Bathrooms were clean, staff was friendly and helpful. The cabin was a good albeit last minute decision.
