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.…

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…

Bring your own TP

We stopped in for one night and stayed at a “primitive site” who needs power hookups. The losers bathroom is .6 miles at the peer store which closes at 7 PM. The next closest is 1 mile away in biker country if you so choose to go there. MY wife and I have no issue going in the woods but there are…

If traveling through Kentucky Ken Lake State Park is a good place to stop

We were on a cross-country trip headed back to Georgia.  This was our last night before arriving home.  The camping space we were assigned was wonderful, right on the water with a cute little deck attached.  Unfortunately, our neighbor had taken the 30 AMP hook-up and we did not have a 50 AMP line…

Beautiful town

Live quietly! This peaceful little town has a wonderfully cared for rv park right on the boat ramp to the green river. There’s a shower house and a nice pavilion for use. Affordable!!!

Lots of activities- interesting camground

I was not sure if I was pulling into a campground or a mobile home park. Many seasonal sites and very busy with activities. Great if you have kids. People were nice and the park was clean. This is more of a fun destination place then an overnight. They had an opening and accommodated us for a last…

Camping near hiking trails and close to the lake

Pine Ridge is a loop campground with some electric and non-electric sites. In April the leaves were not on the trees so there was intermittent shade. This was a decent place for $10 a night.

The main draw for us was the hiking trails. If you go over to the Pounds Hollow Rec Area you can find…

Fantastic Family Camping

We stayed at the Hillman Ferry Campground. We booked online but once we arrived, the attendant suggested we change sites. I recommend calling to book. Some sites are full hookup to include sewer, ours was not. Some sites are also electric only. Call ahead to be sure your have what you need at…

Pretty, clean, quiet camping

Went went for 5 days in a trailer and had a great time! Really level sites with space between camps. The hikes were beautiful and the bison and elk prairie nearby was a hit with the kids. As was the planetarium and nature center. We'll be back soon!!

Absolutely gorgeous

Great campground with beautiful nearby walking trails. A short drive to the observatory and bison prairie. We would go for a lake view site next time.

Not good

The park is small and cramped. Sites are very close together. The rates are extreme for this area.
