OK, 8 campers are registered here for the rally according to postings above but 14 sites are reserved and clustered together. Anybody else reserve a site but didn't say so here?

Good stuff, isn't it? We became Maker's Mark ambassadors at the end of our tour.

Awesome rally theme! I'm a finger type away from booking, but my hesitation is the local taxi number. Better yet, is there a shuttle service or "drinker's van" for the rally? I love Makers Mark and this is a great rally concept, however, I just need to know that us drinkers have logistics responsibly scheduled ahead of time to enjoy the area and all it has to offer...

If we tour Maker's Mark, this is the taste test you get. It did not prove to be difficult to try these samples out and drive back home afterwards. Maker's Mark is about 18 miles from the campground. There is no bar there. On the other hand, Heavenhill distillery is right next to the state park and Jim Beam is 18 minutes away. My ancestor's distillery was bought out by Jim Beam. We are both Maker's Mark ambassadors. We are getting fond of Manhattens made from either Jim Beam or Marker's Mark. At the gift shop, you can buy lots of stuff with melted wax on it (I bought a hat.), and you can even wax your own bottle of Maker's Mark.

Since we own a Uhaul, I am going to have to find the carton of Uhaul highball glasses that Kevin (hubby) gave me for Christmas several years ago and bring those along.

The bars in town serve a variety of KY Bourbons and whiskeys. We ate in Talbott's Tavern (circa 1799) and saw their bar and later ate and sampled the local brew at the Rickhaus, a really nice place in the basement of the whiskey museum in Bardstown.

As for taxis, we don't know, but I am sure other people will want to sample the local brews too.

Hi: CindyL... We toured Makers Mark. First impression out of the truck was the aroma of pancakes in the air. This got me thinking. Our local winery makes Maple wine... very much the same colour as Bourbon. Why not mix the two? A drink made in heaven couldn't taste so good. Sour mash Bourbon with sweet Maple wine over ice!!! YUMMM
Another one is Red Stag (Black cherry) Bourbon in a cup of black coffee. What a way to start the day!!!

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!
