Over the last few years Ashland, KY KOA has been the first stop on most trips to the Mid-South and West. It is just over five and a half hours from home, which in January means just having enough light to set-up camp. The first part of August 2018 heading to shoot the Rockcastle Pro/Am was the first time l pulled in with a few hours of daylight and no snow on the ground. This past January when the blizzard shutdown Kentucky Lulu the wonder Chow and l got snowed in here for three days.
What l found stopping here in the winter is the shower room is spotless. The campground was fairly full in August,which gave me a chance to check out the facilities when in full swing. The showers and bathroom were still spotless as was the laundry. The pool was picture perfect blue. Kids were busy enjoying the playground and the smell of folks grilling was in the air. No one was playing putt putt, but the course was as clean as the shower room.
To those with satellite units the wide variety of cable channels the campground supplies will not mean much to you. Its a god send to travels who do not have satellite, especially if you get stuck in foul weather or are one of the many energy workers here for extended stays.
With more and more campers traveling with our dogs, Kamp K9 is an important feature. Here in Ashland you will be pleased to find a nice big area. It is easily twenty feet by thirty feet. Lulu thought it was great. Thanks to courteous fellow campers it is clean and waste free.
When l head to Las Vegas in January 2019, l will again stop at KOA Ashland. This is a year round campground, open in the nastiest of weather. I cannot speak highly enough of the campground. Numerous big pull throughs, well kept cabins, tents sites, numerous back-ins for extended stay, easy access RV storage; something for everyone.
