We did little but sleep here and spent a couple of days touring the area for historical sites and the horses (!). If you're along the fence by the quarry you won't need an alarm clock, the vehicle backup horns start about sunrise. And they stir up lots of dust. The park is on the Kentucy river and there are nearby launch sites. There are several very nice "family saloons" within a few minutes drive. Excellent food, cold drinks, cater to familes as well as dinner couples. We did not cook our entire visit, too much good food in the area.

This was the closest campground (by many, many miles) to our destination in Winchester, KY. Part of state park grounds and situated along banks of Kentucky River; bordered by trees on all sides; thinly wooded within campground, but many shady sites; However, quarry located just on other side of trees in one area and heavy, noisy trucks started very early in the morning on weekdays. This state park facility had a daily rate of $20 and offered no discounts or weekly/monthly rates; probably a little over-priced without sewer hook-ups and without much to do in the area; also, the pool area, even though not actually in the campground, was nice, but was an additional $4.00 per day for adults - we passed. Campground was nice and could have gotten a point or two higher, but I have to give it an overall average rating because of 1) the noise from the quarry, 2) it was a little over-priced, 3) the bathhouses were old and not cleaned well, and 4) there was no effort on the part of the staff (which there was plenty) to pick up random trash and make the place look better; we would stay there again only if we had to be in that area.
