Louisville, ky

Anyone know of a place to park for three nights near the end of June in the greater Louisville area. We would prefer 50 amp but can work with just using the generator if that's all we can find, Thanks for any suggestions.

There's a KOA just across the river in Indiana - off of I-65 exit #1

Just a little ways NE of the greater Louisville area is Charlestown State Park. There are 50 amp FHU campsites with fairly level paved parking for your RV. The park has never been anywhere near full during our visits. You can check the date that you want to camp and make reservations. The website is camp.in.gov.
Our favorite site is 194.
Good Luck,
Indiana Journey

I'd recommend Taylorsville Lake St.Pk about 25mi south of Louisville. We haven't stayed there personally, but drove through it to check it out when staying nearby & it's definitely on our list of CG's to visit. It's kind of out in the boonies, but the sites are spacious, what I'd call P-shaped with gravel pads & patio areas, & have 50a. They have really nice, long pull thrus, but a majority those are designated for horse trailers only - too bad, they are nice, there are a couple that aren't but they're kind of u-shaped pads so I'm not real sure how a coach would fit in them. If you click on the link above, you can search for sites & the website actually has photos for each site.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

We stayed in the Louisville South KOA in 2009. Quite a ways out of town, very expensive, but a nice place. It did piss me off when my son & his wife came to visit and they charged them $5.00 each to enter the place! That's when I swore I'd never stay at another KOA if I could possibly avoid it, (and I have).

Would recommend the KOA just across the river to the north of town, IF you like listening to trains go by all day and night long.

As a plus, it is walking distance to a fairly large RV dealership with helpful techs and parts dept.

Louisville, KY: June 21 24, 2012 | The Rally .
It is open to everyone. It probably will be difficult to get a campsite in that area so make reservations now.

Last year after doing a lot of research, we decided on Taylorsville Lake SP. We really enjoyed our stay there. We found Louisville did not have many decent or moderately priced choices. Getting to Louisville was no problem from the park.
