Levi Jackson Wilderness State Park - Kentucky (2017)

We found ourselves camping at Levi Jackson Wilderness State Park for the third time in the past three years. It seems that this park is in a very convenient location along the routes we tend to frequently travel with Rosie, our 25 foot Airstream trailer.

Our view of this park remains consistent over our multiple visits. It appears to be a local favorite that attracts many families from the region.

The park has a recreation center that helps keep the kids busy. There are hiking trails, a swimming pool, a tree-top zip line experience and a grist mill in this park. In addition, the mini golf course and the basketball court always seem to be popular places for families to congregate.

Here is some specific information about this park:
  • There appears to be three main camping loops in this park. We camped in the first loop, which is nearer to a stream.
  • Our site had 20, 30 and 50 amp electrical service.
  • Our site had a water connection with good pressure.
  • Our site did not have a sewer connection. There are some sites in this park with sewer connections.
  • We found only one dump station in the park. It is at the end of the second loop and not easy to access.
  • The park has several bathhouses. The restroom and showers nearest Rosie were clean and well-maintained.
  • A negative about the bathhouse is that the showers are controlled by a push button. That means you have no control over water temperature and you only get 12 to 15 seconds per push. This is very inconvenient!
  • The park offered WiFi for a fee. When we logged in, the service said we were eligible for two weeks of free access. We are unsure if this was a fluke or something everyone always sees in this park.
  • AT&T provided a marginal 4G voice and data signal over the park.
  • As before, we could not see any television signals while using Rosie's TV antenna.
  • This was a pet-friendly park.
One of the things we noticed every time we camped in this park is the number of children playing and riding their bikes. This appears to be a very family-friendly park and one that attracts young families. That is a positive thing in our opinion.

It still tastes the same!
