I'm here for an overnight stay since this is the only local camp ground I found with cable TV. I should have asked if they had ESPN (they don't).
If you have kids, I suppose the'll love it. Without kids it's loud and busy. Not the quiet and relaxing atmosphere I usually seek. The bingo game has been going strong all evening and I'm ready for a little peace and quiet.
We stayed here based on the reviews of others and our experience has been great! It's a beautiful tree filled park with well maintained grounds and accomodations. The staff is super helpful and friendly.
Access is easy from the interstate roadways despite being so close to a major city. The park is located in an industrial area but has no sense of being so. It's very secure, quiet, and has direct access to a walking / biking trail that seem to be everywhere in the area.
It also has a city bus stop right outside the property which makes access to the city center super easy. For $1.20, the bus takes you on a ~20 minute trip downtown for all that's offered there. It's a no-brainer; leave your vehicle safely in the park while the bus driver takes you where you want to go. No driving in a strange downtown, no parking fees, no threat of having your vehicle broken into.
We were here for New Years eve and had a spectacular time. I hope to come back in the Spring / Summer to enjoy the area again. No regrets!
I was very disappointed with the Oak Creek facility. The sites are shoehorned together, not level, with non existent space to park your vehicle. It was also covered in mud due to recent extended rains. Understanding they can't control the weather, they can maintain the property in such a way that customers can get in and out on dry, level sites.
A much better option is the nearby Big Bone Lick State Park. It's 9 miles off the interstate down a winding country road, but the facilities don't even compare; it's soooo much better. Try it first before going to Oak Creek.
Wife and I are only passing through and found Duck Creek on Google. It has easy access, most sites are pull- through, and with Good Sam, cost $32 for the night on a 50 amp service.
That said, my site had a problem with the 50 amp outlet; it only had power on one side. I had to revert to my 30 amp shoreline in order to power the whole camper. The power pole issue notwithstanding, i'd easily stay here again.
And be sure to go see the old downtown area; we saw a huge riverboat, steam locomotive, and beautiful old architecture in spades. Walking around old Paducah was a pleasant surprise!
This is what an RV park should be; clean, organized, wide, all concrete pads and driving lanes. It is a very well planned and enjoyable park that shouldn't be missed when parking in Topeka. Well done Deer Creek management!
