Nestled in the heart of Kentucky, Nolin State Park Campground is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, offering a range of recreational activities and some of the best camping experiences in the state. But amongst the plethora of sites available, there’s one that truly stands out — Site Number 27. This blog post will take you on a virtual tour of this coveted spot and share why it’s a camper’s delight.

Prime Location

Site Number 27 is a walk in primitive site with out water or electric. The site enjoys a prime location within Nolin State Park Campground. Tucked away in a peaceful corner of the campground on the shore of the lake and surrounded by trees, it offers an ideal blend of privacy and convenience. It’s close enough to the park’s amenities, yet secluded enough to provide a sense of serenity and a genuine connection with nature.

Finding the campsite

Finding the site can be difficult but there are signs pointing to it. Once you enter the main campground follow the road past the bathhouse and take the third right into the large parking lot. The trail to the campsite is off to the left of the parking lot. After crossing about 35 yards of grass to the tree line, access to the site is via a narrow trail approximately 20 yards long. The distances are approximate and are from memory. I have not measured the distance.

The Space and Layout

One of the factors that make Site Number 27 so popular is its spacious layout. It’s a large, fairly level site with plenty of room to set up a sizable tent. The fact that it is a walk-in site gives a sense of privacy and allows for a more relaxed and comfortable camping experience.

Natural Beauty

Surrounded by lush vegetation, Site Number 27 is a nature lover’s paradise. It’s shaded by several large trees that not only provide relief from the sun during summer days but also add an element of charm to the site. The backdrop of greenery makes for a delightful view to wake up to and sets the stage for memorable evening campfires.

Accessibility to Amenities

While you may feel like you’re deep in the wilderness, you’re never far from the campground’s amenities. Restrooms and shower facilities are just a short walk away, fairly clean and well-maintained. The proximity to the park’s playground is a bonus for families with children.

Access to Recreational Activities

One of the standout features of Site Number 27 is its close proximity to the wealth of recreational activities available in Nolin State Park. The campground offers easy access to the vast Nolin River Lake, a hotspot for boating, fishing, and swimming. There no swimming from the bank of the campsite but it is perfect for fishing. If you want to swim, the beach for the campground is just a short walk down the well defined road and path leading off to the left as you leave the campsite. Hiking enthusiasts will appreciate the nearby trails that meander through the campground, along with several other improved trails (including a waterfall trail) available from the trailhead at the boat ramp. The improved trails are of various difficulty but offer breathtaking views and the chance to spot local wildlife.
