We had quite an eventful stay in May, a group of very young adults wanted to party all night with obscene music and behavior- and us with 4 young children.. But I was relieved when the man in yellow came, remaining professional despite their drunken threats. The next night we had a terrible storm but the men in yellow quickly took care of the downed trees and made sure we were alright.

When I booked on the website, it gave me a price for 4 people for two nights. When I arrive, they tell me it's an EXTRA $20/tent after one tent. We're already paying an extra fee per person, but an extra TENT charge? Unreal. At least put that estimate on the website so we can account for that ahead of time. Sites are extremely close together, no privacy at all for tent camping.

Worst employees/ owners ever. Got mouthed off to by the owner who also got in my boyfriends face after we turned our music down for them, they were rude and made us leave on Memorial Day weekend at almost 11 at night! Ridiculous! NEVER GOING BACK. Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone

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.

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.

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

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.

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.


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.

The bluegrass festival was nice, but this campground needs some TLC... The roads need fixed, the camp sites need to be better maintained such as mowing the grass, paint the fences, clean out the fire pits , and the bathrooms need updated. We love the camp, but we will not camp here again.

We booked our reservation to stay at this KOA because we thought it was close to Cumberland falls because that is what the information said in the site. Well it is not close to the falls it is an hour and a half away. The campsite had multiple things "out of order" and the front desk wasn't very helpful. We have stayed at many KOA campsites this summer and this one to say the least was by far the

Some extra restrooms would've been nice. It's a pain to take my young children all the way up to the bathhouse several times a day.
Jul 15, 2015
Bathrooms are clean, area well kept, I wish it was a little closer to the lake then it would be perfect
Jul 13, 2015
The beautiful surroundings and the great hospitality keep drawing me back to the Russell Springs KOA - Sharon is a difference maker; makes me feel like I'm "home."

Very nice place very clean and very friendly staff!! Will be back

The campground was very dated. Not much to do in the area except Alligator Marina. The RV sites are very close to each other. The pool was Okay, the playground was simple, and the recreation room was run down and neglected. The hosts were friendly and extremely helpful with things to do in Russell Springs which was about 20 minutes away and The National Fish Hatchery which was about 50 min.
Jul 05, 2015
We love it at Russell Springs, Ky. Give us time to unplug and be together with walking and talking. Already booked another weekend.

Staff was friendly and area was clean. However, the pool closed before dusk and so did the rec hall. Not family friendly.

Showers and toilets need upgrading

The place was full of revs however the desk clerk didn't tell us the park was empty, my daughter and I were the only guests in the would have been nice to know as we were two women traveling alone.. there was no hot water in the bathrooms and they were very unkempt.. it was definitely the worst stay so far on our trip.


Thank you so much for your comments and bringing the problem with the hot water to our attention. There was a breaker problem and we have addressed and solved it. We also have a host camper on site 24-7 and does security and also resort security that comes up every night through the KOA park.

very good place to eat here very friendly they are willing to help the only thing said I had a problem was that they sold my own fireworks which is he's only 9 and they take care of the problem overall good place to camp I would be more than happy to come back


we are so sorry that this happened and we have addressed the problem, thanks for staying with us and hope to see you again in the near future

This place was absolutely perfect. Pool was VERY clean, restrooms were immaculate compared to other camp sites. Booked over the phone and then showed up in person. Was told I was moved camp sites so I was discouraged. When told why I was very pleased and thanked them for their curteousy. I was placed on one that had a little bit of gravel and might have been uncomfortable so I went to a grassy one


we were so pleased you chose to stay with us and hopefully we will see you again in the near future

Husband & I wanted to get away for quiet time and this place fit the bill 110%. Still had lot to do for everyone. You got to pick what you want. The people was super nice and knew the area to help people. Helpful with us cause of our service dogs. Already booked another weekend. We have joke saying let head back to Russell Springs KOA. Think this will be our 2nd home.


it was sure a pleasure having you visit us over the holiday weekend, looking forward to seeing you back soon

Another great stay at Russell Springs KOA. This is a beautiful environment, and the southern hospitality shines through. Sharon, the resident camper is the best! She always makes one feel at home :)


Steve, so glad you came to stay with us again, always a joy to see and talk to you, hopefully you will be back soon, weather permitting, have a great winter...Sharon

I reserved a tent spot and was put in with campers, drunk campers, that kept me awake. I'm sure I paid for water and electric that I didn't use and told people I would not use it even when I made my reservation. I paid way too much for the misery. This was the worst place I have ever camped at in my 25 years of camping. At least the front desk people were nice.

Sharon and the team make us feel like family. It's nice to see a friendly, welcoming face upon arrival and throughout our stay.
Aug 18, 2014
The grounds & facilities are very well kept with a friendly peaceful atmosphere. A rustic look with modern accommodations at a great price. We will be back!

Sharon is wonderful. Truly the right person "on the job." Pleasant, personable, and hooked me up for another stay in 2 weeks - great overall experience.
