For the quilt festival, the area will be quite full. Kentucky Dam State Park has nice sites with electric, not sure about water. Hillman Ferry in Land between the lakes is very nice, we stay often and really like there. There is a newer COE campground up by the canal right below Grand rivers on the Trace. Have not stayed there yet. A bit further down is Columbus-Belmont State Park, small, but one of the best. Last time we stayed at KDSP, there were a number of floks there for the quilt festival. Also coming from NC, be sure to allow an extra day and stay at the Horse Park in Lexington. From there you can get on the Parkway (i don't remember which one, and go all the way to Paducah on very good lightly travelled four-lane parkway.
