Last night I stayed in the dumpiest of dumps, so today I really needed something nice. WoW, Kentucky Horse Park Campground delivered. From check in to set up, it was convenient and easy, big and roomy, beautiful. No sewer hook up, and since I'm going to be here a week, that's a challenge. But there's a really nice guy named Keith who will come and pump your tanks any time you want. Fantastic! Well stocked store, tennis (they'll loan you the equipment), basketball, a HUGE beautiful pool, cafe, loads of space to roam around. Admittedly, I'm biased because I'm horse people, but this place is wonderful! The people in the RV next to me have no connection to horses, but they come here all the time because it is so nice. And, because no sewer, it is super reasonable. They do have dump stations as well. Will happily and comfortably spend a week here! NOTE: My photo didn't do the place justice. It is much greener and lusher than the photo would let on.

Campers receive reduced admission to the world-renown Kentucky Horse Park. THE place to get close to horses, the park features live horse shows and special events, museums, movie, gift shop and more. Campers have access to Lexington's Legacy Trail, 9-mile long multi-use (non-equine) trail that connects the Kentucky Horse Park with downtown Lexington. In future years, the trail is expected to be expanded in both downtown Lexington (south) and Georgetown (north) and beyond. ... more less
