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…

Clean, Fun, and Lots of Features

We were a bit nervous about this campground when reading reviews and seeing the location (there is an Impact Incarceration Program that shares the border), but I'm glad we found it. We booked this spot a few weeks in advance for Memorial Day weekend, and honestly we only booked it because it was…

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

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.

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…

Spring camping

Easy check in, camped in the tent sight. Unfortunately there was a lot of glitter pieces, plastic kid’s pieces and my self along picked up 34 cigarette butts. Besides the the people that don’t care about using a garbage can. Everything else was wonderful. Trail around lake just beautiful, bathroom…

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…
