National Forest

Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area

Basic Campground amenities include defined campsites, fire rings and/or grills, picnic tables, vault toilet, trash removal, mowed areas, and a boat ramp.

Land Between the Lakes has Basic, Dispersed, and Self-Service camping options as alternatives to the more developed campgrounds. We have 11 self-service campgrounds and 5 designated basic camping facilities which offer year-round lakeside camping. Although these areas have fewer amenities than our developed campgrounds, they can offer solitude and a more primitive camping experience.

“Pack it in. Pack it out.” | Keep campsite clean and litter free at all times Dumpsters: At all designated camping areas and Welcome Stations

Recycling stations: At Developed campgrounds and Welcome Stations | Fishing line recycling available at most boat ramps

Dump stations: At North Welcome, South Welcome, and Golden Pond (south of Hunter Check Station) | Dumping gray or black water on ground, in waterways, or in chemical or vault toilets is prohibited | Dumping home or commercial trash anywhere in Land Between the Lakes is prohibited

Fee Info

You may camp almost anywhere in Land Between the Lakes. A Basic Camping Permit is required for each person 18 and over when camping in Basic Camping Facilities. A Dispersed Camping Permit is required when camping in non-designated areas of the recreation area. Both permits currently cost $50 for an annual permit and $10 for a 3-day permit and can be purchased online or any of our facilities.

First come, first served - Basic campground

This is the "developed" side of Twin Lakes, but it is only more developed because the sites each have cement tables and fire rings. There is also a vault toilet at the farthest end of the camp site, so if you choose a site with a trail to the water, you are going to hike up and over to the lou.  This is also a basic (dispersed) campground, and you will need to purchase your permit prior to coming out.  Pack in everything you need.  The views are okay here, I just didn't see a whole lot to draw me back here. It is close to the North-South trail. It is very quiet here, and most campsites are level and grassy, which is a plus when tent camping. There is a small beach with gravel shore, but not much sand.

Twin Lakes Camp, Between the Lakes, Ky

Nice basic camp. Lots of shade rings a field which may also be camped on. $10 for 3 days. Walk to lake. Fire pit with grill & picnic tables. Was car camping and it was perfect for that. Wouldn’t call it back country at all. Permits available online.
