This is city camping. Basically a parking spot no room everyone is packed in like sardines. Campfires are very miniature. No room for just hanging out No room to let kids just play and campsite there is a park was ok but not that great. Bathrooms were very clean along with showers. Manager/owner is very rude. Was charged 50 over what I was told. Told them what I was quoted and they did not care but her home was packed all weekend.
I got one of the two cabins they have. Has a bunk bed and a queen/king size bed a small a/c unit a desk and 2 chairs. I recommend starting the a/c unit on the coldest it will go and leaving for lunch or some other activity so it can catch up to the heat of the day. Overall a very safe feeling place and comfy atmosphere. The cabin has a deadbolt and if you have a pot handy, you don't have to trek to the latrine in the middle of the night!!!
I gave it a 3 appeal rating, since I consider this a city slicker type of camping. I like this since I am on call for my job in Louisville and can get there within an hour. If you want to be in the city near the hustle and bustle this is for you. I prefer Taylorsville lake state park, where I can fish and hike and watch deer.
Also I gave it a 3 star for facility rating beacause of the a/c in the cabin. They like to advertise the cabins have a/c. Well on this July day I had to hold my face nest to the a/c unit to try and stop the sweat. Its been 6 hours with the unit running on highland if I'm not too active I won't break a sweat.ill be sleeping underneath the a/c unit with a fan blowing on me just to keep comfortable. Invest a couple nights rent and buy a bigger cooling unit please!!!
Great location for touring Louisville, KY. Just a short drive over the bridge into downtown. Only drawback is the constant trains at night that pass right by the campsite. Facilities are nice but could use some improvements. Friendly staff who are helpful and know the local area. Next door is a large RV dealer with a good size parts and supply department.
Be aware that you BETTER know how to drive your RV before committing to stay here. Very tight fit.
If you have short-term business in the Louisville area or just passing through, you can get away with staying here. They are open 7am-10pm, so late arrivals & early check-outs are ok. Very close to the Louisville area.
Otherwise, get ready for a heavy dose of planes, trains, and trucks. EVERY night, there was a noisy train. When the train wasn't running or tooting it's horn, there was a steady diet of planes flying overhead. Spaces are incredibly tight, so if you're here for a long time and your neighbor ties their barking dogs outside their RV at 7am or decides to run their diesel truck for 30 minutes in the morning, there's nothing you can do. At one point, a neighbor's awning was touching my RV.
If you have dogs, there's nowhere for you to walk them. The reason why other reviews complain about the lack of fields & dog space is because half the pictures on their website are green fields & foliage. This gives the inaccurate perception that this campground is an actual campground & not a parking lot with hook-ups.
While most staff was INCREDIBLY nice & helpful, their kindness was negated by one rude individual whom I believe was the manager. For example, one night my power meter for my electric went out, and one of their nice staff members quickly swapped out the box. However, not only did the box lack a cover over the connection to protect it from rain, but this rude staff member knocked on my RV the following afternoon and told me to immediately shut off my power so the electric box could be worked on. When I said that I couldn't do it right now because I was billing a client on my computer, this individual YELLED at me saying that it was an inconvenience to come back in an hour on my schedule.
Looking back, there were some good things about the park. Clean bathrooms, a small convenience store that was open long hours, plenty of propane, lots of friendly staff members, cheap laundry, & water connections that are well set-up for winter.
Unfortunately, the few bad things FAR-outweighed the good things. Don't stay here for long periods.
This park is fine for an overnight. All the sites are CLOSE together, the only grass is what is in the photo of the website. The train in about 100 feet east of the park elevated but did not interfere with our sleep. Very nice staff, but the price is very high, but it is where I would stay if I were visiting Louisville. I would stay there again.
First off, don't use your GPS to get here. It will take you to a bridge that is 10' clearance and if you have a 42' 5th wheel like us, you will have to back up 500 yards and drive through a very sketchy neighborhood just to get turned around. Second of all, this "campground" is an embarrassment to the Good Sam community and should be stricken from its website. The sites are not big rig friendly as we couldn't even let out our slide outs without hitting the next sites power pole. The staff is friendly but the site itself is an utter disappointment. This is the first review I have ever written because I don't want the good people that follow and TRUST Good Sam to make the same mistake we did.
I agree with you. We have been staying there for 27 years. About the only campground near downtown Louisville. Owner and her daughter have always been very cordial and accommodating to our needs. Besides, you can use the facilities at the Marriott hotel down the street. We've been staying there so long, we don't even pay any attention to the train. Great place to ride bikes to the river and parks. Close to restaurants and more.
Not to much of a campground. Asphalt parking and rocks between spaces. Spaces are very close. They have cable and my tv found 278 channels and you dont get that many. Train tracks are right in the back yard of this place. They seem to run all night so its noisy. Only plus I find for the place is diesel is right on site would find another site and not stay here again.
This place is by far no campground!!! It's more like an asphalt parking lot. With the slide out extended we were probably 3 feet away from neighboring camper. We were also unable to open our awning or it would hit the neighboring camper on the other side......plus - the electrical & water hook-ups for the neighboring camper were right a the bottom step so you had to watch out exiting your camper because of the electrical hook ups. Even though this was just one over night stay during our travels home we should have boondocked it in Walmart parking lot
Great stay. Campground is in town and close to everything. Sites are close to each other but worth the stay being only 2 miles from downtown Louisville Kentucky. The people are friendly and very helpful and in the store/office until 10pm unlike most other campgrounds. Meeting friends, having dinner, sight seeing or appointments in Louisville this is the closest campground.
When we needed to go to Louisville with 5 of my kids (8-17yo), I had a hard time choosing a place to stay. I don't like city camprounds: most are large parking lots. I was pleasantly surprised to see lots of green here. Camping spots were a little tight, but this is a large campus and there is busy crew keeping it up. There were several activities for my kids that they enjoyed. Bathrooms were average. Price is a little high, but they are actually delivering some extra amenities and proximity to Louisville is good.
After reading the horrible reviews, I decided to come anyway because of the proximity. I am glad I kept my reservation. The negative reviews I have read are unfair in my opinion. This is clearly a "Metro" campground, which means it is a "City" setting. I have stayed in many "Metro" campgrounds in different cities, and while this is not a top of the line campground, it has many great facets. It is really close to everything in Louisville. The staff is very friendly and very accomodating. Yes the sites are not as big as I would like or have seen elsewhere, but compared to other "Metro" campgrounds, I have seen much worse. Quad slides don't leave you a lot of room on the side but it is not like you are bumping in to your neighbor. Sites are paved and level. 40' Coach with enclosed car trailer got in and out with little issues. Another 43' with enclosed car trailer was next to me with quad slides and it was fine. Fairly quiet campground. Yes there is a train that passes by - at a very slow speed and while you hear the "rumble", there are no horns or signals and running a small fan as I always do in the bedroom, never heard it at nite. Don't be afraid to visit if you want to be close to activity in Louisville.
Beware of this campground. It sits directly next to a railroad track. Staff is not friendly. Sites are so small you have no outdoor space. I could stand between the RV's, put both arms out and touch both RV's. The staff told me they have a large amount of people staying their that are working at the Amazon fulfillment center. It truly is a trailer park in many ways.
This campground is small but all hookups are great as is the location to Louisville. The management is superb. I wouldn't think of staying any where else in this area, as must be the thought of others as it is full most nights.
Ideal location. Within a few miles of everything. Just across the river from Louisville Ky. It is in town camping. No trees or nature trails. It is not like the country guietness but is so convenient to town. What do
You expect when your in town. The sites are close together and there is no grass at the sites but there is a great area to walk the dogs across from the store. The restrooms were clean and the people were friendly and helpful. We have a 43' fifth wheel and it was tight getting out but my husband can drive so there was no problem. To be in town it was great. If we wanted a campground for a getaway we would stay in the country. This is about LOCATION!
This is not a campground! It is a small area of total asphalt and gravel with no grass whatsoever. The sites are so close together that the picnic table of the site next to us was up against our coach. I was unable to open our awning because it protruded into the street and would have been struck by passing RV's. I am not even sure I will be able to pull out without asking our neighbors to back up. The active railroad is 40 feet from the campground and homeless people tent camp on the other side of the railroad tracks. The only positive was that the staff was friendly.
How does this get a 7.5 on Good Sam??? This is by far the worst campground we have ever stayed at.
This is not a campground! It is a parking lot. The pull thru sites are so narrow that units with slides on both sides can't deploy one side. I had to back my rig up so a 40' rig could get out of his space next to me. No room to sit outside let alone grill outdoors.
No room for your toad so you have to park it away from your site.
