Came in on a Wednesday and the park was mostly empty. Weekends are full! Friendly staff that sell ice and firewood at the front entrance. Paved pull through spot for our 30ft TT. On a hill but easy to level. Picnic table and campfire ring at each site. Plenty of room between the sites with large shade trees and grass. Water and electric on opposite ends of the site so we had to have an extension cord for the electric – no problems. No wifi or cable but Verizon Mifi picked up the internet with a booster. AT&T didn’t work well. Nicely maintained State Park. Two Bath houses cleaned almost daily, plenty of hot water, hooks for clothes and the lights run on timers. Laundry with 1 washer and 2 dryers at each bath house. Dump stations behind each one. Turns are a little challenging and there are several spots where the pavement needs repair. The sites on the outside of the loops are very small and should be for tents only. Easy access to a boat ramp. Lots of amenities within a couple of miles outside the campground but still inside the park. Grocery, hardware, discount stores and restaurants in Glasgow (15 miles) or Bowling Green (35 miles). We stayed for 2 weeks on one site and then moved to another for 2 more weeks. We loved this park and plan to return!
