About Kendall Campground

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

Click here for the Lake Cumberland virtual tour.


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.


The campground is a multi-use recreation area, consisting of 70 acres and 115 reservable campsites, all of which have water and electric hookups.

Each campsite has a picnic table, fire ring 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 playground 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.

Favorite place to stay on the Cumberland.

Been camping here since I was little. A lot has changed over the years with all the pine trees dying out, but new growth provides plenty shade. Cool fog off the river makes camping conditions comfortable in the hottest weather. Fish the river for trout,walleye and stripers or go upon the lake for a joy ride.

Close to Home

It’s very clean, shaded, private, our children love it and so do we, great place to ride bikes and fish!! On the Cumberland river

Fly fishing

Great place to camp, fly fish, fish, all around great place.

First to Review

Kendall Campground below the dam at Wolf Creek Fish Hatchery this is a busy place. A very well maintained and newer area/facilities.

The campground is split into the area closest the boat ramp with an A and B loop and an annex that is near the fishing stream that runs from the Hatchery.

The main Campground offered shaded camp sites with some privacy. There were metal stairs down to the river and large enough sites for people to park their boat there.

The annex was smaller and not shaded, almost like a truck stop with the sites stacked one after the next.

The area offers all manner of outdoor entertainment leaning more toward the water. There is plenty of pavement to bike on, a short gravel trail that connects the two campground and a nice picnic/ pavilion area.
