Beautiful location

The drive in is something not to be missed, one long road that twists and turns. But it’s so pretty. At the campsite the workers are very nice and helpful. They keep the grounds in top shape. You can launch a boat or in my case a paddle board right from campsite. If you have an issue late at night…

Great State Park!

Nice secluded place! Very well kept. Facilities are clean and love that they recycle. Sites ate well spaced apart. Pretty level. Each site has lots of room to entertain or just sit out and enjoy the wilderness. Water, electric, firepit and picnic tables at each site as well. Not too many large site…

Laurel County side with 9 sites is still open

The sites all sit on the side of the road opposite the river bank. Each site has a small parking area and a well done, leveled gravel path/stairs leading to the picnic and fire ring area as well as the level area for a tent. I was most surprised at how much traffic was on the road, especially…

Spacious, Peaceful Campgrounds

I am currently here and I gotta say I am impressed. The bathrooms are clean, I am not close to my neighboring campers, the parking spots are huge, and it's a great area to walk around.

Perfect Tent Camp Experience

The tent camp sites on the island were aptly distanced from one another. The other campers seemed to have an unspoken sense of support. Multiple people offered ice, and even campground host offered to air up air mattresses.

There was plenty of driftwood on site to burn, but if you're going to…

Beautiful eyes and quiet

We were hear on Labor Day weekend and really enjoyed it. It is quiet and our site was relatively private. Cool stuff to do nearby, hiking, overlooks and old mining community. We stayed at site 13 it is near a small pond and was quiet. Sites 20,21 &22 looked even more secluded. Will be…

Litter Ruins Great Spot

We needed a spot for Labor Day weekend and discovered Barren Fork Horse Camp in Daniel Boone National Forest near Whitley, KY. There are lots of great hikes and natural bridges in the area to check out. We had no problem finding a site. The biggest negative is the amount of trash that was left in…

Sad campground for such a beautiful area

We stayed two nights in the Ridgeline Campground, site R22. This is a beautiful area, but there is nothing beautiful about the campground. Seemed run down and the spots are right next to each other. Make sure to watch the “max vehicle length” - we have a 21’ van and we barely fit into our site…

Heed the warnings about the southern entrance

We didn't and ended up driving an extra hour to get to the campground.

Our only complaint is the site was not level. When we were able to get the camper level the tongue was 40" high. We had to borrow 6 8X8 blocks from the Rangers in order to stabilize the front 

Other than that, we enjoyed the…

There are numerous cabins and lodges. Covered pavilions can be rented for large…
