Camp Carlson

Camp Carlson Recreation Activity (Camp Carlson Travel Camp), near Fort Knox, Kentucky

Camp Carlson is open to active duty and retired military retirees (and guests).

On a scale of 1-10, I'd give it a 7.  We camped in a 40' motorhome.  I'd come here again.

Read other reviews:
When we were are on our way to Henryville, IN for some volunteer work, we stopped here. We have never been to Fort Knox or Louisville, KY which is about 40 minutes away.

We liked this campground and would visit again.  It is a well run campground and the people here know what they are doing.  They mow the grass and they have a lot of it.  They are friendly at the office and have a helpful way about them.  The price is right ($17/night).

A couple of things you need to know:

  • There is no AT&T phone service.
  • My Verizon wifi worked OK but it was slow.
  • The satellite TV works if you have a spot with good access.  Some sites are in the trees.  There is no cable TV.
The laundry facility is great.  It has plenty of washers and dryers at $1 a load.  It is located with a meeting room and the women and men's showers.

Our first campsite was on a concrete slab near the showers.  It had 50 amp and water but no sewer.
When a spot opened up with sewer, we took it.  It had a more open area which made satellite access no problem.

 The campground is set in a valley with a very small lake/ large pond and it is beautiful.  We had quite a few great evening walks.

The campground is about 40 miles from Louisville Kentucky and near Fort Knox.  It is actually 4 miles away from Fort Knox and does not have military gate access.  It is open which means a military ID is not required to get to the campground.

That is it for this edition of the Roadrunner Chronicles.  Thanks for joining us!  Until next time...
