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. Permits available online.

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.

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.…

Amazing primitive sites!

We love the primitive sites at Nathan Bedford Forest! Each site is along the River banks, so you get the best views! Fire pits and picnic tables included. The bathhouse is very old though and does not have a shower. That is the only reason I couldn’t give this one 5 stars!

zero maintenance run down smelly

Overwhelming smell of dead fish that are laying aplenty on the shores of Ohio Rv. as there is no staff to clean up. Add to this general malaise of zero maintenance mowing or repairing decrepid sites and you get the picture. Did have 30 amp to drive my AC that covered the sound of the work crew…

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…

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…
