Pioneer Playhouse – Danville, KY


An RV Park attached to a small summer stock theater! What a concept! If you just need an overnight, this will work. If you don’t feel like cooking, take in the dinner theater ($27 for dinner and show as of this writing). The shows are only run on Tues – Sat in the summer.

The RV spaces aren’t much, they are kind of tight for navigating. There are trees for shade, but the trees are located in such a way that… well, you may or may not be able to put slides out, you may or may not be able to put your awning out. I did see some big rigs there, so I’ll say “yes” for big rigs, even though the spaces are rather tight. The sites aren’t very level. Some of the sites are electric only, some are water and electric. The electric and water connections are “side by side.” If you have an “even” numbered space, your connections will be on the correct side. If you are in an “odd” numbered space, you will need extra length water hose and electric cord.

Although you can make reservations for the dinner theater, the RV spaces are first come first served. I recommend that you be carrying water just in case “electric only” is all that’s available. The cost is the same whether you get electric only or water/electric ($18 at this writing). There were restrooms to use, but no showers.

The office personnel said the RV park rarely gets full. You just pick a spot, then go in and pay. In fact, when I was there on a night when they didn’t have a play, they weren’t too rigid about whether you pay when you arrive or wait until you are leaving. There is a community dump station, a little cumbersome to navigate around. I got decent television reception via antenna. There appears to be a WiFi, but it was very weak at the RV sites. Verizon Air Card worked a little slow.
