Moutardier Campground sits on the shores of Nolin River Lake in the rolling landscape of southern Kentucky. The large lake and surrounding greenery create a recreational oasis for outdoor enthusiasts.Click hereto take a tour of our lake.
Known for its unique blue/green water, Nolin Lake is one of the top lakes in Kentucky for catfish, bass, crappie and walleye fishing.
Visitors can enjoy scenic canoe and boat trips along the river, part of which is located within Mammoth Cave National Park. Boat ramps are provided around the lake for campers' convenience.
The Moutardier, Ponderosa and Wax Marinas are located around the lake and offer pontoon and john boat rentals, as well as boat slips and groceries, bait, gas and more.
Several hiking trails also wind along the shoreline and into the surrounding forest. Shady Creek Trail, located within the recreation area, is known for its array of wildflowers and greenery.
Moutardier Campground offers 167 campsites, complete with modern amenities like electric and water hookups. We have flush toilets and shower houses. Campsites are located along the shoreline allowing easy access to the lake for visitors.
Nolin Dam creates a 5,795-acre lake that draws more than two million visitors each year to enjoy water sports and camping in the surrounding expanse of rolling forest.
Mammoth Cave National Park is located a short drive or ferry ride away from the campground, and several golf courses and riding stables are located around the lake.

The campground only had about 5 or so RVs in it and we thought we would have a few days of quiet. It sits right on Nolin Lake which is supposed to be infamous for it's blue-green waters.
What a well maintained place to camp! The sites were not very private, but we there are sites right on the water, which made the limited seclusion less of a concern. Nice trails to walk and nearby places to rent a boat. We came here while on a trip to Mammoth Cave (very near- ½ hour drive).
Variety of amenities including a restaurant nearby (did not eat there). Clean bathrooms, running water and an amazing view of the lake. Cannot speak to the fishing as I don't fish.
