Great Camp and Fish Spot

Had a wonderful weekend at Kendall. Have heard it can be hard to get a reservation, and now I know why.

Our favorite campground in Kentucky

This campground is well maintained, quiet and beautiful. You can fish, hike, kayak or just relax. It’s great for the whole family and the snack shack has great burgers & ice cream for those times you don’t want to cook. The trout stream is beautiful and you can always see plenty of wildlife.

About This Campground

Overview

Kendall Campground is located at 80 Kendall Road, south of Jamestown, Kentucky, just below Wolf Creek Dam, which forms beautiful Lake Cumberland.

Recreation

Lake Cumberland is the largest man-made lake east of the Mississippi River. Its large surface acreage and over 1,200 miles of shoreline provide a myriad of recreational activities.

Kendall Campground offers visitors convenient access to a cold water trout stream, making it a popular fishing destination. The stream is well-stocked with rainbow, brook and brown trout.

Whispering Pines Trail, located within the campground, is a non-strenuous trail approximately half a mile long.

Facilities

The campground is a multi-use recreation area, consisting of 70 acres and 116 reservable campsites, all of which have water and electric hookups.

Each campsite has a picnic table, fire ring/grill and lantern post. A group day-use picnic shelter with water and electric hookups is available as well.

A boat ramp, fish cleaning station, basketball court, horseshoe pit, hiking trail and playgrounds are located within the park.

Natural Features

The campground overlooks the river, offering sweeping scenic views. Dense stands of mature hardwoods forest the site, offering scenic views, pleasant shade and wildlife habitat. Because of the temperate climate and relatively long recreation season, the lake provides varied outdoor recreational opportunities for millions of visitors each year.
