RV’s and Campers

New policy implemented in 2019

As The Burn continues to grow, space has become a premium at our venue, the Kentucky Horse Park Campground. As such, to accommodate all of our riders and the various means of camping accommodations, we have decided that all RVs and campers must reserve a spot. There is now a fee to bring along RV’s and campers, and reservations must be made through the Bourbon Country Burn at the time of registration or it can be added on at a later date. Space is limited, so please reserve a spot soon.

*Note: You should only contact the KY Horse Park Campground if you wish to book one of their campsites for the general public (or option #3 below).

What do we consider a camper?

Our policy applies to RVs, camping trailers, pop-ups, tear-drop campers, roof-top tents and all other non-tent camping vehicles, regardless of size, class, or need for water/electric hookups. Basically, if what you are sleeping in has wheels, then you need to reserve a spot. As usual, we have options for you, which can be added at the time of registration or even after:
