Clean! Clean! Clean!

They have one of the cleanest parks! This is a Corp of Engineers reservoir that is well maintained. We stay in various places all over the park and the best thing about this is there are no fees to access the public areas of the dam to fish or lake! Our children love to camp and play around the lake!

Wide open spaces

The Rough River Lodge , Falls of Rough , Ky no longer has a campground co-located, it was closed a few years ago when the dam was renovated. That being said there are two campgrounds Cave Creek and Axtel, in the immediate area, with the total available around the lake being 5.

The Lodge is an older building, the rooms overlook the lake. There are two cabin areas and a 2ish mile nature trail connects them with the lodge and Marina.

The area offers a small airport, boat ramp, miniature golf, beach, pool, tennis courts, small playground, picnic pavilion, and basketball court. Not much shade and just like the rest of the area busy.
