Kentucky RV Campgrounds We Stayed At Along The Kentucky Bourbon Trail

Most of the distilleries had sufficient parking for large motorhomes. The only one that didn't was Woodford Reserve pictured here. photo by Lynnette at TheFunTimesGuide.comFollowing is a brief review of the places we stayed on a recent RV trip to Kentucky.

We traveled along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, visiting bourbon distilleries during the day and camping at RV parks at night.

On this trip, we stayed at 3 different campgrounds — each of which we would recommend and stay at again in the future. Each place accommodates big rigs like our 40-foot motorhome.

I’m sharing the information here partly so I’ll have the details handy for the next time we’re in the area looking for a place to stay!…


Elizabethtown Crossroads Campground
209 Tunnel Hill Road – Elizabethtown, Kentucky 42701
(270) 737-7600 

  • We paid $30 ($27 after 10% Good Sam Club discount) for site #6 — an unpaved pull-thru site, which we had a difficult time leveling our motorhome on (automatic levelers).
  • Pets are welcome.
  • They have wireless Internet and cable TV, and a 24-hour laundry room.
  • They have 50 amp service available.
  • They also have cozy cabins for rent.
  • There’s a swimming pool that’s open until 8PM.
  • We didn’t use any of the facilities on site.
  • The owners seemed very nice and tried to help us get the motorhome level.

Rolling Hills Camping Resort
11 Hunter Road – Taylorsville, Kentucky 40071
(502) 477-1291

  • We paid $39.50 (including tax) for site #33 — a gravel back-in site.
  • Finding this place was a little tricky using the GPS. We had to call the office for assistance after we had passed it.
  • Pets are welcome.
  • They have a dump station on site.
  • There’s a fishing lake in the center of the property — a great place to walk the dog.
  • There’s a swimming pool by the main office for use by adults only.
  • We didn’t use any of the facilities on site.
  • The owner seemed friendly and checked to make sure we got parked okay.

UPDATE: It appears that this campground is now closed. Here are photos of the Rolling Hills RV Camping Resort:

Holt’s Campground
2351 Templin Avenue – Bardstown, Kentucky 40004 
(502) 348-6717

  • Holts Campground accommodates big rigs in Bardstown, Kentucky. photo by Lynnette at We paid $20 (cash only, includes tax) for site #22 — a concrete pad back-in site. (They’ll all concrete pads here.)
  • This is the most laid-back place you’ll ever find. (Most campground provide a long list of rules; not here!)
  • The owner was extremely friendly and sincerely interested in helping you choose the best site on the property.
  • We could hear a racecar track in the distance; but not loud enough to be disturbing.
  • There’s a small lake on the property, as well as lots of geese (…and goose poop).
  • This isn’t exactly a family-oriented campground, as there are no amenities. (They had 50 amp service though.)
  • We didn’t see any children; just men. It kind of seemed like a trucker crowd.
  • Relatively speaking, it’s a small campground — only 33 sites.
  • There’s a dump station on site (though I didn’t see it).
  • We didn’t use any of the facilities on site.
  • Finding this place was a little tricky using the GPS. We had to call the office for assistance after we had passed it.
