Campgrounds Near Lexington, KY

We are taking our first long trip in October to the Lexington, KY area. I have been researching campgrounds, but most I've seen have mixed reviews, specifically that the grounds do not have many trees/lack privacy. We are staying 4 nights. It is just my husband and me, so we are not interested in family activities, just some trees and the usual amenities. Thanks in advance for your suggestions!!

We have reservations for Elkhorn CG in Frankfort, just to the NW of Lexington. Haven't been there yet but it gets good reviews. Planning on checking out the Bourbon Trail there on our way back from Pennsylvania.

Hi ,

The Kentucky Horse Park is well run and close to everything going on in Lexington.

In addition to hookup sites they have "overflow"dry options in the adjacent fields.

Try Camp on the Kentucky. Nice folks. The road there is twisty though.

Ky Horse Park has some nice sites with a little shade. We have stayed there four times and plan to go back. Check out "Shakertown" just a few miles away for a nice day going into the past. Great place to eat. And enjoy the displays and activities at the Ky Horse Park. Very nice place to be.

Not far from Lexington but closer to Louisville is Taylorsville Lake State Park... not a whole lot of shade but a few shady spots. Real shady is in downtown small town Bardstown, My Old Kentucky Home State park. Wonderful, small and shady and close to many restaurants and Bourbon Trail attractions. Only a few spots can accommodate large RV/5th wheels so do your research online at I do Bardstown twice a year because I like the area so much.

Finally south of Lexington is BURNSIDE iSLAND State Park, just south of Somerset, KY. Many spots and most are shaded. Great golf course on the island.

We stayed one night at a walmart in bardstown. There appeared to be a nice park on the southern part of town with plenty of shade and close to several distilleries on the Bourbon Trail.
