This park is not right off of the expressway. While the roads aren’t bad getting there (unless your GPS takes you to Rabbit Hash and the ferry!), you will be driving for a while (maybe 20 minutes or so) once you exit off of I-275.

Comments

This is a newer park, and I must admit, I quite liked it! I did not stay here because of the casino, but if you are interested in casinos, this one (unlike its campground) seemed dated and very smokey to me. There’s another casino not too far away – Hollywood Casino in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. Not sure if it is any better, but might be worth checking out if you’re interested.

It rained during most of my stay, so I very much appreciated the concrete sites!

I found the space between sites comfortable, and even though it was the weekend, this park was not full to capacity.

Check-in is a little odd. There are signs clearly telling you where to park and where to check-in. But when I went to the Lodge to check-in, I was then shuttled to the Hotel in order to go through the check-in process, and then shuttled back to where my RV was parked. Then I entered the gated RV park area to my site. (Perhaps there is “normally” someone at the Lodge to check folks in, and I just came at an odd time when no one was there.)

There are full hookups, plus cable TV, which even includes HBO. The cable was great! But the wi-fi did not work for me. I called the front office, and she said an IT tech would reach out to me, but that did not happen.

My phone’s Verizon connection was strong.

Included in your reservation are some amenities located at the casino – which is a short walk (or shuttle ride) away. At the casino, you have access to the indoor pool, a nice workout room, and free breakfast. There are also a few restaurants at the casino. Or, if you’d rather not eat there, you can drive into Rising Sun or Aurora (which has a lot of options!) for a bite to eat.

Conveniently located behind the park is a Dollar General and IGA, as well as a couple of gas stations.

The dog park is large, with plenty of green grass.

This is not the kind of RV park you go to when you want to be in nature. But if you’re visiting the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area, this is a clean, newer park with most of the luxuries a campground can offer for a very reasonable price. It has private bathroom/shower rooms, which I always appreciate when traveling! And even though it is not right off the expressway, it’s a fairly pleasant drive from I-275. Just be sure to check your GPS and make sure it isn’t taking you down to Rabbit Hash, KY and then over on the ferry to Rising Sun. Unless, of course, that sort of thing (in your RV!) appeals to you. 😉
