No good

This campground should be nothing more then an overnight stop over. Small campground, no fire rings, rude camp host and over priced. I would not recommend.

Beautiful and Clean

We stayed in camping spot #11. Although it wasnt very private, and very busy on a Tuesday, it did have a view of the water and was very close to the bathrooms and showers. The facilities were extremely clean and people were friendly. There are flushing toilets, hot showers, and new picnic tables…

Perfect Location

Hillman Ferry is the northernmost full service campground in the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area and is an excellent base camp for exploring the LBL and other recreation opportunities in the area. And are there ever choices! To start, Hillman Ferry sits on Kentucky Lake and has many…

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, dump station. Was car camping and it was perfect for that. Wouldn’t call it back country at all. Permits available online.

So fun! Very family friendly!

We loved our visit to this KOA! Waterpark in the summer, boating activities, lake front sites. Countless activities for the kids and the pools are nice too! We cant wait to go back!

It’s now a pay site $10 a night

I love camping here but there is constant traffic with boats being put in via the boat ramp if you camp in the first 2 branches. The woods have been picked free of firewood around the sites but it is pretty. There are hiking trails connected there so that is a plus.

Hidden Gem

This campground is a hidden gem!  Stayed at Site 25 and had a great view all weekend.  

Pros:

There are only 15 sites so it's small but not crowded.

Several sites have 50A service, the rest have 30A and all have water.

Several sites are on the water and the rest are near it.  Great for…

Okay ONLY if it’s not busy!!

We’ve gone when there was nobody (it was fall and pretty cold) and got to tent camp by the water and LOVED it. We went back on a weekend in June and it was awful. Packed, and RVs were loud and honestly rude. No tent only sites and RVs won’t hesitate to park next to a tent rather than by an RV.…

Great campground

Great campground to get away with family. The beach and the playground were nice for the kids. Our campsite was level and huge. I did notice a few sites were a little rough though. The bathhouses were nice and clean as well. We will definitely go back.

Trees, shade, lake, and great campsites

What a gem! Great to see so many campsites nestled in the trees. There is ample spacing between sites. Lakefront sites are worth the effort to reserve!

Campsites are level and nice amenities to boot!

There are showers (with some room for improvement).

Sweet little campground

Just 4 miles from highway 62 in Kuttawa, KY and it feels like another place in time. You can fish Lake Barkley from your campsite or just enjoy the waves washing up. Level gravel sites with tables and a big fire pit with a cooking grate. Nice shade trees and some nature trails. There is a very…
