Hi all!

We are hoping to be moving to the area this month, and will not have a place to live upon arriving. We have 2 dogs and 2 cats and 4 little kids. We were thinking of staying at a campground until we can buy a house (but we don't have a camper, just a tent). Can anyone recommend any near l'ville that accept animals? Thanks,

Katherine

As far as I know all campgrounds accept them. There are two KOAs near here, one in Clarksville, IN and one in Bullitt County KY

Kentucky State Parks operate a public campground at Taylorsville Lake State Park. The campground has about 10 sites, also a bathhouse. It's about 40 miles from Louisville, but easily traveled by Interstate 64.
The area of Nolin Lake, about 80 miles south of Louisville has 3 campgrounds, all with many sites (about 50 each). Of those, Wax Campground and Dog Creek are the closest to Louisville.
Most of the campgrounds have a maximum stay of 12 days. A site without electricity costs about $17 per night. Pets are allowed on a leash.
If you have an old map you may see Otter Creek Recreation Area, by Radcliff. It has a very nice campground, about 60 sites with all facilities, but, unfortunately, the Otter Creek area closed last year for lack of funds. Local authorities check daily for trespassers.

Thanks all, I think we'll be heading to KOA if they have room.

I love the KOAs, they have so much to do for the kids.
