If you are going to spend time in Kentucky, then you need to make Mammoth Cave NP a primary spot to visit. When we've gone there, we've stayed at Nolin Lake SP. It's a relatively small, water and 50amp electric CG with spacious sites and quiet surrounding area that is just north and a little west of the NP. We've been there 2x and have thoroughly enjoyed it each time. This is a great area to spend a portion of your time in KY.

The Horse Park near Lexington also has a wonderful campground. The Horse Park itself is a beautiful place to visit, and its location near to Lexington and Frankfort makes it a great basecamp for doing day trips to the surrounding area. Your right in Bourbon Country with lots of opportunities to tour one or more distilleries around you. Also, I really recommend you visit the Kentucky Vietnam Veterans Memorial just outside of Frankfort. It's in the form of a sundial and is one of the largest granite memorials in the country, and absolutely beautiful. I guarantee it will be totally worth your time to visit it. Following URL is a picture: https://www.google.com/maps/uv?pb=!1...iowFXoECCQQAw#

Just remember that there are many beautiful, interesting and historically significant places to see and visit in KY. Have fun with your visit.

Seeing as the OP asked their question 3 years ago & this thread just got resurrected, I'd bet they had a good time.

There is great need for a sarcasm font.

Good grief!

Well, don't let a good thread go to waste. If you're headed to KY, lots of good advice in the posts above.

Beau 388 hit it! As a former Kentuckian - born and raised there, but having left KY some 40 years ago, and having visited/camped in state parks all over the U.S.A. and Canada, I will say that no state we have visited, and we've been in all except Hawaii, has a better, prettier state park system and nicer campgrounds than Kentucky. Many of KY's state parks are old and were established during the depression by the Works Progress Administration, and reflect the architecture and workmanship of that era. Many of KY's state park campgrounds, being very dated, don't have large campsites but in recent years some have been upgraded as much as space allows in order to accommodate today's larger RVs.

Aside from KY's state parks and campgrounds it is a beautiful, very diverse state with the Appalachian Mountains in the east, Appalachian foot hills in the central part of the state, and "river rich" flat land farms in the west. While every state in the U.S has its own beauty and great things to see and do, anyone with a wanderlust and time should visit Kentucky.

I lived in Murray, KY and RVed all over the state for over 25 years. For caves, Carter Caves SP is much better than Mammoth Cave with great history. For Civil War fans, there is Columbus-Belmont SP on the Mississippi bluffs. For hiking, Breaks Interstate SP or Land between the Lakes NRA (LBL, with the bison and elk herds). For scenery and horse rides, Cumberland Falls SP especially when the moon bow is visible. My favorite is still the Kentucky Horse SP. The trill of being able to help harness a pair of Shire geldings (2,200 lbs, each; 17 hands tall) for a wagon ride is perfect memory.

If you arecat Ky horse park and like BBQ you should try Red State BBQ. Not far from the park.
http://www.redstatebbq.com/

I dont know the current status of the Corvette factory and museum but if they are open and operating it is a pretty interesting day.

Just copied this from the National Corvette Museum website:

When we went to visit Mammoth Cave NP with two grandsons, we stayed at the Cave Country RV Campground in Cave City. Nice campground for a weekend.

Ah... too bad that was a great day and DW really enjoyed it as well. Factory tours are one of favorites.
