Set amidst the rolling hills of the Bluegrass lies the Kentucky Horse Park Campground, one of America's finest resort campgrounds. Each site is complete with electrical and water hookups, paved pads, fire rings and picnic tables. Unlimited primitive camping available, with an electrical service area for some of the primitive camping. There is also a campground store, two bathhouses, laundromats, two dump stations, swimming pool, tennis courts, game room and playground. 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.

Beautiful campground only a couple of miles from the interstate; Large campstore and excellent bathrooms and showers. Sites are spacious and shady with gravel put down any place there is a chance of mud. Wi-fi worked well. But the best part of this campground was the

Lovely well laid out park. We were warmly welcomed, and directed to our spot, easy access, and a nice level pad for our 3 Horse LQ trailer. Bathrooms spotless, and well located in the centre of the rounds as they have the park laid out. Showers are awesome, much needed after

Great park not full service but large spaces with beautiful trees and green grass! Nice place to walk your dogs! Will go again! Dumping stations are plentiful and clean. Washerteria could use some new machines other than that no complaints!

KHP is a great place to camp. The bathhouse was clean and had plenty of shower spaces. I would like to see some better sign placement as we had to drive through the park in the dark twice to find our spot in the dark.

We stayed here for a couple nights so we could visit the horse park, which was a short drive. The concrete site was level side to side but very low in the front. The first mistake they made was not angling the sites; very hard to get into without driving on grass, which is why

The farther you are back the more trees you’ll have. I like about midways though. You can ask the reservation desk to help you pick the perfect spot. They want you to enjoy your trip and are very helpful! You will have a blast!

Without knowing for certain, either option should work but I'd lean towards Uber. Should be about a 30 minute commute. Not sure if the campground will let Uber beyond the entry gates, so you may need to meet them at the front entrance (about a 5-10 minute walk) depending on your campsite location.

Are people allowed to camp in their horse trailers here?
It depends on the event and is not a matter of course. Please contact the campground at 859/259-4257 for more information.

Thinking of RV living. How much would be monthy rental for a space?
Hi, Ellen! By state law, our KHP Campground, owned by the Commonwealth of Kentucky under the Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet, cannot allow camping for more than 14 days. Enjoy your new lifestyle!

The ones without electric could be - think a field at least the width of a football field, with a line of trees across the back of it, then the length of two+football fields. The people there had spread out nicely to not be on top of each other. The primitive with electric were pretty close for being tent sites. I agree with you about the RV's. That was the only downside to the loops. We had a site in the inner left loop, which does have a nice green section running down the middle, so we could move our tent more to that middle. We had one rv next to us, which was ok once they turned off their outdoor tv and went inside :-) it wasn't as noisy as I thought it might be. then the site behind us had tents - but enough space. Only down side I had to walk through their site to get to the bathhouse. However, I will say this is the nicest state park i've camped out (KY, NC, SC, VA, PA), nicest facilities, bathrooms, staff, people at the sight. The sight we had didn't have a ton of trees (less mosquitos -maybe this area doesn't have many to begin with??). We'd love to go back .

"The otter ring sites on the right hand side 60, 90 and that area"
"Campsite D211 was nicely shaded and level."
"Ask in advance about sites with good satellite views."
"Use online photos to select site. Ours was fine, A22, but I wouldn't chose it again."
"Corner sites have huge empty spaces behind"
