Looking for a holiday haven where life moves at a leisurely pace and the helpful hosts make everyone including the dog feel welcome?
Elkwood Campground is a park-like setting that offers a care-free ambiance with established trees for shade, level paved roads throughout the camp, and lush green grass at every turn. They also boast a fish-filled creek where many new friends are made as holiday anglers try their luck.
The word is this iconic campground has been in the hands of private owners since 1987 and it shows, with a constantly-maintained camp that offers up-market restrooms and a renovated bathhouse. The general store caters to every vacation whim with ice-creams for the kids and a laundry right next door.
There are 125 sites available for RV’s, trailers, and an area for tents. Around 61 of the generously-sized sites are equipped with electric (50 amp), sewer, water, and cable-TV hookups. For the big rigs, there are larger pull-through sites to make parking up a breeze. The camp includes a pool and an awesome playground for the children, plus fun-times playing basketball, volleyball, and mini-golf. A spacious pavilion provides an area for groups or clubs to host an event.
Each site features a picnic table and fire-ring with wood available at the camp store. There is also a grey and black water dump station close to the bathhouse. Elkhorn campground is open from the 1st of April through to the 31st of October but there are some sites available in the winter months.
If you’ve brought the family dog, they must be on a leash no longer than six feet. There are some restrictions on particular breeds and all owners are asked to clean up their pooch's waste. It's a courtesy to ensure your woofer is well behaved around other dogs and people staying at the campground.
Elkhorn campground is situated in the Kentucky capital of Frankfort, so you can holiday in a country atmosphere with a major city only five minutes away. Visit the Salato Wildlife Center where kids can learn about conservation, hunting, and the history of wild animals, or wander through The Thomas D. Clark Center - a call to action for history buffs, while Cove Spring Park is a scenic wonderland offering waterfalls, forests, and hiking trails for the outdoor enthusiast.
