This was a nice KOA. We stayed in the Full Hook Up area. The spots are not level, but spacious. When you stay down there it is a hike up a hill to the bathhouse and pool area and a longer hike to the dumpster. No big deal though...but it could be for some. There are free range chickens and...

Good time. The staff was very friendly; very responsive! Had a maintenance issue at the camp site and they squared it up in no time! Only downside is one showerhouse and restroom for the entire campground. Not too far of a walk but in convenient after a few trips. Good location; in the heart of the Mammoth Cave area.

We just recently stayed here during spring break & wouldn't ever stay here again. There is a Jellystone Campground just down the road & next time we'll try there. Many of the sites are small with really little grassy area - unless you are in a tent, then it's just a large grass area. It is right by the interstate... More

Horse Cave KOA was very nice. Staff was friendly and the cabin was very clean. We love staying at the KOA's. Only downfall which isn't too major is its right off the freeway so you hear the traffic when you go to bed. But would definite recommend staying here.

This is a basic campground. Bathrooms are eh... A place to go indoors, but each night there were roaches that came out. Yuck. The campground needs an update. Probably hasn't changed in 50 years. The highway noise is the worst part for me. I thought we would be "camping" but hearing semis while your fire is crackling away at night... More

Basic campground close to the highway. Nothing special. Typical bath house for camping. Needs to be cleaned more then once on the weekend or when busy. It was pretty dirty. Has a pool that our kids used. mini golf looked like it was working or hasn't been used in years. But we didn't ask. Had a nice playground for the... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the campground after having read a few reviews. Yes, it is right next to the highway. There's a bunch of construction going on at this time and it does get a little bit loud. No big deal. The back in sites are on a hill and are the nearest to the store and shower house.... More

Nice, clean, and near to Kentucky Down Under and lots of cave/nature things to do! The kids enjoyed the playground and pool. There was plenty of room for our tent, and plenty of spots to choose from. We didn't get around to playing miniature golf but it was nice to have the option.

Camped here for 2 nights for a visit to Mammoth Cave. Started off with an issue with our reservation, but the staff there went out of their way to accommodate, and were overall very helpful. The grounds were really nice, with plenty of spaces. The road noise was hardly noticeable most of the time, even though it is right off... More

The Horse Cave Kentucky KOA provided a nice, peaceful setting for camping. My husband and I really enjoyed staying at the beautiful campground. My only complaints would be that the Interstate is a little too close and the tents sites could be closer to the restroom. Other than that the site - including the restrooms- was clean and well maintained.... More
