“family-owned since 1987”

Since 1987 we have been a family owned and operated campground. We are located in the capital city of Frankfort, Kentucky on the banks of the Elkhorn Creek. The park is open from April 1st thru October 31st each year. Limited camping sites are available during the winter months. There are 125 sites in the park of which 109 are paved. Sixty-one sites have full hookup, including cable TV. Extra long pull thru sites are available for big rigs and campers that are towing.

The campground was quiet, and the bathhouses were clean. Smack dab in between Lexington and Louisville and right off the road from the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. If you follow your GPS it will probably take you down Bedford road. It's scenic country drive lined with old trees that create a mesmerizing green tunnel in spots. Great to drive on with a car, bad in an RV.

Stayed one night last year 2014 1st week in August here after pulling our trailer from Nashville, actually California but, immediately from picking up a friend at the airport in Nashville. We arrived late. Paper work was available at the office box for late check in. Several people were outside enjoying the Moon Phenomena going on. They volunteered to help us find out space and even help with directions in the back-up of the trailer. In the morning we took walk around the sight. It was very beautiful, quiet and clean. The bathrooms were very clean and comfortable. Nice place. I hope to return this summer for the 127 Corridor Longest Yard Sale.

Nice, clean campground with spots right next to the river. We were a little disappointed that we were put right between two other filled spaces when there were several empty spots, however not enough to move as we were there only one night. COVID has been such a challenge for all and the campground had shut down most of the shower space due the pandemic. The place was quiet and peaceful. I would stay here again.

Elkhorn is located just outside of Frankfurt, far enough away so you don't hear the traffic and hustle and bustle of the city. A bit rustic, the sites are maintained and easy to navigate. The bathrooms are well-maintained and kept up to date. It's a great place to start and end your day on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.

Quiet park. Friendly staff. Level site for the most part. Pool crowded! Tight spots to get big rigs into. Creek runs through it. Lots of bad weather while we were there but things drained well and we didn’t get too muddy. Road coming in too narrow, especially if you meet another rig. Close to The Ark Encounter and not too far from the Creation Museum which is why we were in the area! Follow the website directions for the best way in!
