Campground Reviews

Campground very clean, the staff very friendly.

Very pleased with the KOA in general. Was not happy with our particular site due to it not being level it was a pull through site and had to end up parking in the driving lane to get as alevel as possible. I put a level on the ground and it had a 3" slope over 4' so over all it was about a 30'' slope for the length of the site. Otherwise we were very pleased.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your feedback. Those sites are to be redone. We are behind on our remodel due to the rain and COVID-19. Hope to see you return, and you can see the finished remodel.

the improvements are really impressive!!

Very clean. WiFi is terrible. We were close to the office and had nil reception. Even though we were on vacation, my husband did have work to complete as well.

Pretty close to Interstate 65, so there's some traffic noise. Other than that, no complaints. Friendly staff, clean sites. Due to COVID situation, all the amenities were closed. They are going thru a remodel right now and it's looking pretty nice so far.

Requested 50 amp service thought the site had 50 amp service and knowingly did not work found that out in the morning when I reported that the 50 amp service was not working causing me to try to figure out what was wrong with my camper had a chilly nightUntil I figured out the next morning what the issue was

The owners are so great and very friendly. The remodeled bathhouse is amazing and they just added these awesome Covered wagon type of cabins. Love the KOA and the area is so neat for lot's a family stuff to do. We'll be back.

Beautiful area.Lots of improvements. Very nice! My husband loves to fish. I like to walk. We both like to relax and grill. My dog loves the squirrels. Over all, we had a great 3 day stay.

2 nights. Located on the lower level near the barn area. Good location for us.

We enjoyed at the farm animals when we woke. We did alot of bird watching from there. We will stop on our way to and from Georgia next year.

It was a nice facility. The only thing I would change is the turkeys. They were loose and we were unsure if they were aggressive.

First, with the whole empty campground they put us right next to another big rig which given the pandemic was terribly inconsiderate. Then, our campsite was on such a SLOPE that we didnt dare unhook our tear drop for for fear it would roll down and into the farmyard and pond on the other side. My husband couldnt find the bathhouses, everything was torn up under construction and no sign.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I assure you our campers safety comes first. You were spaced out enough in which you would had no harm. We let you know upon booking, that our bathhouses are closed do to the pandemic. We have also stated this on our website. We do not book anyone that does not have there on bathroom, because we can

just needed an overnight. Looks like the owners are really improving the place. Recently paved "streets" and remodeling the office.

Very clean. Nice walking around to get outside, animals were fun to watch. Was bad with being confined with Covid19, no TV reception, cable would have been nice. Only 3-4 other campers and WIFi was spotty. Down on lower level the highway traffic noice was bad. When walked above was not as bad.

It was so nice to have a place to get away to while covid 19 has shut down most of the world. It was private since we were the only ones out of our camper enjoying the place. Kids loved the animals. Liked the pond through those fish are sneaky.

This was our first time at a KOA and Horse Cave surpassed our expectations. The park was clean and the sites were spaced out so we were not right on top of each other. The animals in the barn were great, my kids loved feeding the horses and chickens. Close to Mammoth Cave National Park with great hiking and sight seeing! Will definitely stay here again.

They were open during construction and COVID19. I applaud their efforts. However, they are NOT big rig friendly. They have pull through sites but they are too short for today’s RVs. Even the 5th wheels and trailers had to Jack their vehicles on a 45 to stay out of the road. Secondly, the sites are so far from level most people won’t have enough blocks to level. It is about 18 in rise between r

Sorry for the unpleasant stay. Yes, the sites are un-level at this time, but that's why we are under construction to fix that problem. We have sites that will accommodate larger RVs, but was not available during your stay. Hope you will stop by and see the finished project.

Because of it being under construction it was very difficult to maneuver and there were no facilities near our site. Someone also was grating the gravel at 6am. The sites were not very level.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am sorry you had an unpleasant stay. The sites are not too level due to the amount of rain we have had. We've been grating the sites to prep for pavement. We would like for you to return and see all the upgrades completed!

Stayed over night. Good place. They are working hard to make it better.
Mar 25, 2020
Would have ben a great stay if the dident have monthly campers harassing us the whole time we camped
Mar 22, 2020
I understand the campground is being renovated, and the area is nice, but the noise from the trucks on I 65 made it impossible to sleep. We listened to them accelerate up the hill all night.

Unfortunately under construction but friendly personnel.

We were there off season in the midst of their remodel. They had play areas, showers and toilets, so their guests had what they needed. Very accommodating office staff and some fun poultry (turkeys & chickens) to watch patrol the grounds. Prediction: this will be a great destination when remodeled.
Mar 16, 2020
We have stayed here the last 2 years on our way to Florida. We know they are making a lot of upgrades to an already very nice campground. The owners are always so friendly and that makes our stay even nicer.
Mar 15, 2020
although under construction we still enjoyed our one night there. this was our second time there in 3 years, and I think we would go back if in the area. Would be nice to see when completed.The animals are a nice touch.

Everything under construction- we booked over the phone and was not told about this. Very noisy chainsaws going at 8 am. We didn’t get the site we reserved and were put below next to VERY noisy I65. Laundry was unavailable as were all other amenities. We are happy for the updating to your facility but would have like to have been told when we booked. We counted on the laundry and were unable to

We are sorry you had an unpleasant stay. As we improve, there are growing pains. We tell everyone who calls that we are under construction, and make sure to update our website and Facebook page. We hope you'll come back to see the additions!

This campground should be closed during reconstruction. We arrived to know office staff blocked and washed out roads. No real bath facilities just a portable unit. No laundry no garbage disposal or pick up. Sites had old garbage and doggie poop bags everywhere. The construction crew Began using chainsaws at 8am right outside our motorhome. We Left a day early.

We apologize and are doing our due diligence to inform our guests on our webpage, koa.com, and with additional signage. We are taking this time in the off-season to improve our park for our guests and are excited for the results. Hope we will see you again!

Not fair to rate this camp when it is in the middle of major renovations ..ok now for self-sustaining big rigs / and actual tenters - but the temporary portable bathroom (3pce) is adequate but not good for older or infirmed...they could not manoeuvre the steps or the limited space. This should be added to camp notes to let others know. I based my rating on these drawbacks. Otherwise - all good.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am sorry you had an unpleasant stay. We are under renovation to make the camping experience better for our guests. I will check into the notes on our site because we did have that added previously. Thank you for your feedback. Have a blessed day.

On the morning of Feb 21, 2020 the showers had no hot water. I suspect they ran out of propand.

We stayed for a quick visit to mammoth cave and even with the construction ongoing in office and out of season, the cabin was clean and warm, and our hosts were always available. Thanks.
Feb 17, 2020
Wish we was aware of the extensive renovations being done to the office and bath house. Wouldn’t have changed our mind but it would have been nice to know.

Simply traveling through for an overnight. Very accomodating. Very happy with our experience. Met the owner. Very nice people.
