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.

Unimpressive and crowded

The campsite is considered to be primitive, which is fine, but it is right along the trail without any cover. All the campsites are one on top of the other without any cover in between or from the trail. They were all taken and incredibly packed during the Memorial Day weekend and honestly seemed…

Great stay

Sites and bathrooms super well maintained. Sites were big and tucked away into pretty nooks. Close to some awesome hikes, Jackson falls was a fav. Fsho will return

Good, wooded sites

We stayed 2 nights at site 6 in May. It was a roomy, wooded site with water and electric for $22/night. Unfortunately, there was SO MUCH poison ivy that we couldn't play in the woods. But we enjoyed our stay on the beautiful lake! Decent bathrooms and playground but not great. The shower never did…

So close to hiking but close to each other in the sites

This campground is a small loop with sites on both sides. You pass a public picnic area on the way in. This was packed when we went. The sites were a bit too close to each other for us. Our dog needs more vegetation to mask other camper distractions. The campground is beautiful though. The main…

Backpacking camping along Indian Point Trail

Many different experiences available so decide what you are looking for. The parking lot is marked as backpacking parking. We headed down Indian Point Trail and within 50 yards or so we came upon the first site. An offshoot trail headed off to the right and ended at a nice campsite with a set fire…

Indiana Does It Again

A huge campground for both tents and RVs. Electrical but no water connections at each RV site. Hot showers and bathrooms within walking distance of each site. The shower spigots stay on a loooong time so no need to keep pushing for shower stream. Super friendly ranger who let us pay for our site…

Nice location and sites, rough road, first come first served

This small campground is nice once you get there!  Just know it is remote and the road to get there is rough, so, if you are not comfortable with that, I would go elsewhere.  There are no hookups, although water is available.  Also there are pit toilets which are not the worst I have seen!  No cell…

Great backcountry backpacking. The huge rock formation area is packed but the backpack loop is amazing. Great views.

Riverside rustic camping - check if open

We drove down to camp here and found this campground closed. We walked in past the locked gate to scout it out and there was a line of debris left behind from when the river was higher. 

There is a vault toilet and a simple loop setup to the campground. The road continues past camp to a marina…

Dusty, rustic camping at the edge of Shawnee

This small, rustic camp is at the edge of Shawnee and only had a few campers staying multiple nights with us. Then the turkey hunting season came upon us and the sites filled.

We had site choices that ended up being along the gravel forest road that goes by camp. This put us away from other…

  • The gravel road is just beyond the back of our teardrop. We had shade for a portion of mid day. Maybe more shade would be here after the leaves grow out.
  • Head down the forest road and you will find this small cemetery. The family lost a few children within a few years - life must have been tough in the 1800s.
