Grandma's RV Campground - Shepherdsville, KY

I don't remember ever meeting my grandmothers. My maternal grandmother died 20 years before I was born and my paternal grandmother died two months after my birth. That doesn't mean I haven't looked at their photos and tried to imagine what it would have been like to have had them in my life.

Maybe my lack of experience with my grandparents was what drew us to Grandma's RV Campground.

Somehow, my mental picture of grandma was very different from what I encountered at this park. Grandma had rules. Grandma had lots of rules. Grandma had lots and lots of rules. We were given pages of rules while checking in and the number of signs in the park with new rules or rule reminders became a running joke while we were there. There were signs everywhere reminding you of Grandma's rules and introducing new site specific ones.

The last rule on these signs usually stated that anyone caught violating any rule would be immediately evicted from the park without a refund. I guess Grandma is tired of people ignoring her infinite number of rules.

Rules, Rules and more rules

There are rules everywhere you look!

Once you get past the rules, this is a nice little park. There were many little artistic do-dads scattered around that added a nice touch to it. The park was also very clean. (There were plenty of rules about keeping the park tidy and not touching the decorations!)

We spent only one night in the park while traveling down I-65. We were tired and our choice was between Grandma's and a truck stop. It was too warm to boondock without power, so Grandma won.

Grandma's tired from enforcing all the rules!

We were surprised by the size of this park and the number of trailers there. We couldn't tell for sure, but it appeared that the park may have a large number of resident units staying there.
Here are some specifics about this park:
  • Our site had 20, 30 and 50 amp electrical service.
  • Our site had a water connection. It was in a hole about two feet underground. That made connecting our hose a challenge.
  • Our site had a sewer connection.
  • Our site was gravel and level.
  • AT&T placed a strong 4G signal over our site for both voice and data.
  • The park provided reasonable Wi-Fi service.
  • We were able to watch ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and PBS using Rosie's TV antenna. We also saw Antenna, Bounce, ME-TV and THiS digital channels.
  • The park had clean and modern restrooms and showers.
  • This was almost a pet friendly park. (The rules made it clear that Grandma reluctantly allowed pets in the park.)
We arrived at sunset and left early the next morning. Grandma's was OK for an overnight stay, but I don't think it's a destination type park unless you are on a caravan looking for campgrounds with the most rules. In that case, you may find that Grandma is a winner.
