15 acres with a barn and creek. Our property also boarders the Jefferson County Forestry and is close to Tom Wallace Park. This 5 acres is a corner lot next to railroad tracks so there are two roads on two sides. This is a very rural type area yet still in the city so you will hear and see a combination of city/country things. We are very close to Fort Knox and Knob Creek gun range. You will most likely encounter wildlife, hear gunfire, hear cars and the train go by, you will probably see and hear us and the neighbors on tractors and trucks. This is a working farm among other farming type residents. This is a space for someone to camp with their personal camping equipment. There is no water, no shower, no electric or anything else besides a fire pit. You need to bring your own supplies. We border the Jefferson County Forestry with an entrance about 1 mile away. We are about 30 mins away from downtown, but just 5 mins from a Kroger, Walmart, and a dozen different restaurants. We are also about 15 mins from Fort Knox. There is a shared porta potty onsite.

Quit space for relaxation. Plenty of birds. Recommend it.

Beautiful campsite! So many wildflowers blooming & loved the creek. Might want to bring a pair of ear plugs for the train! Only came once each night — usually passed quickly! Would recommend

Shelby’s property is perfect for a spacious camping weekend where our dogs could be off leash! Porta-potty was very clean and right next to our site - loved this! Can’t wait to come back in the fall to enjoy the fall leaves!

Nice site close to Louisville
The site was easy to access and nicely maintained. There are three campsites at this location next to a train track and fairly busy road. It was very convenient to stores and food. It felt safe. There is a fire pit and the space is level. It worked great for my needs. It’s between two mountain bike trails and close to downtown Louisville. I’d recommend bringing ear plugs if you don’t like the white noise of the road. I’ll visit this location again.

Site 1: Overflow
The stay at Shelbys was good. She made accommodations available through an overflow site because her regular sites were booked. Thanks for that. It was relatively quiet, except a train passing by each morning but all in all a good camt site.

Great camping at Shelby’s
We enjoyed camping on Shelby’s land. We had a roof top tent so it was easy to find a level surface to park and set up. There are three spots on the property and we were not in view of the other spots it was private and comfortable. The grass was mowed. It happened to be a little windy but because of the surrounding tree coverage it wasn’t bad at all. It was also very easy to get to, the area was locked behind a gate and the directions from Shelby were very clear.
