Whatever you do avoid this place for camping - Kentucky Horse Park.
I've heard it is the WORST campground near Kentucky.

Although we never camped, we rented a house at Kentucky Dam and enjoyed the pool and the locks.
​​​​​We visited Ky Horse Park and loved the museum. Pennyrile in Dawson Springs is nice.
In general, Ky parks are well run but some are larger than others. Do check online.
What was said about the horse park?

Are you looking for primitive or full service hookups? Lots of great places to camp. Many of the lakes have multiple camp areas-most will be opening for the season soon. KOA also has multiple campgrounds as do many of the state park.

What part of KY interests you most?

Look into Mamoth Cave Campground and Mamoth Cave National Park Campground.

Maybe the infield on Derby day (September 5th) is worse???

Lol, nwmale. Many years ago my DH took a portable tv, with whiskey replacing the tubes, into the Derby infield!
Thanks for a memory. 🏇
