When reading the cg site descriptions, most have "severe drop" on the description, whereas only 2 or 3 show "level" ?? Do we need to bring extra wood or something or are the descriptions inaccurate?

Hi: cpaharley2008... I think the site in my pic. was #13. Fairly level. Some others could be an uphill battle. The only problem we encountered was the loud "Pings" from the "Titanium" woods driving off the first tee beside the Club house.

You might wish to avoid these sites: 15, 20, 25, and 27 for severe back-in slope and 29 for severe sideways slope. By severe, I gauged it to mean our VT tongue would be jacked up at least 15 inches to reach level and I didn't consider that safe. In fact, our bumper would probably hit the ground in the rear before level was reached. For site 29 the sideways slope required one wheel to be at least a foot higher than the other. Again, not safe for our 16' trailer. If there are other sites marked as severe, I didn't judge them to be so by personal inspection. However, opinions may vary.

Why are so many severe and paved? One would think that level would have been the word of the day??

In checking now, I see that 24, 26, and 30 are described as moderate and still available, while all the rest are described as severe. We didn't think so in walking by each one since campers were in them without much extra leveling. It is kind of strange. The 32 and 33 numbered sites didn't look bad to us. Grab the moderate ones first, I guess!

Eggs a la Bourbon Update:
It looks like we have 13 campers registered at the rally in Bardstown, KY, at My Old Kentucky Home State Park next June 10 - 12. At the current time, we have 4 UHauls and a variety of other FG trailers: a Casita, a Burro, 3 Scamps, an Oliver Elite II, an Alto, an A-Frame, and one unidentified trailer. There are still 17 open camping sites today, but some are marked severe regarding the back-in grade on the reservation site. We know to avoid sites 15, 20, 25, 27, and 29 from our own observations this summer. Sites 24, 26, and 30 are open and marked moderate, and 32 and 33 look good, too. Still room for you but don't wait!

I have been trying to charter a bus for a group of us to go on the Bourbon tour of two distilleries and lunch at the Old Talbott Tavern. The only sure thing I have found so far is $100 per person which is unacceptable to me. So I am trying to see about chartering another bus and bus driver in the area. I'm having a little luck, but not much so far. How much is too much $$ per person if I do this? I was thinking for a 20 person on Saturday morning for about 8 hours rental. Starting about 8/ 8:30 AM then headed to makers mark distillery (https://www.makersmark.com/distillery) back to the Old Talbott Tavern
(Talbott Tavern – Historic Bardstown, KY) for lunch then to Jim Beam distillery
(Tour Info and Reservation: Jim Beam American Stillhouse. | Jim Beam®) and then back to the
Campground.

1) You will pay for Each distillery. They will charge a fee for their tour.
2) You will pay for your own lunch, but it is located downtown Bardstown Kentucky with a lot of little shops around.


Keeping in mind this is just the payment for the bus. Not to include lunch or entry fee for the distilleries. Taking all this into consideration how many are interested in me getting a bus??


Is this something I should pursue if there is not enough interest I will not pursue it any further. I'm hoping it will not interfere with the dinner that evening

Please PM me and let me know how many are interested and what is a good $$.
NOT GOING TO BE FREE... LOL


I will let everybody know the price I can get the cheapest bus/bus driver for and if there is enough interest.
