Beautiful and Clean

We stayed in camping spot #11. Although it wasnt very private, and very busy on a Tuesday, it did have a view of the water and was very close to the bathrooms and showers. The facilities were extremely clean and people were friendly. There are flushing toilets, hot showers, and new picnic tables…

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…

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…

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…

Best place I’ve been on the water

Great place for backcountry though you can drive right to the spot. The gravel road back can be rough especially right after a big rain but you can avoid most of the holes. The site is right on the water with a gravel opening beside it. We were able to setup 4 tents with lots of room to spare. We…

Great place to camp.

The area is feels like you stepped back in time. You’ll never want to leave because everyone is so nice. The campground is in the shape of a peninsula so there are many campsites with water views and access. The bathrooms and showers are very clean and the road in is very nice. If you forget…

Serene, quiet and clean

We didn’t know exactly what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised by how kind everyone is. The amenities are clean and the setting is gorgeous. Felt very safe. The water is beautiful and the only sound is nature and the cracklings from the fire at night.

  • Much better with a dancing fire to light the surroundings.

Beautiful

We camped for one night and arrived late with no one on duty to take payment so we used the honor system drop box. Stunning views of lake and awesome sunset. Left in the early morning to a bunch of deer everywhere.

Only one night

A clean campground right off of the roadway. I can't say much about this place other than the restrooms were clean with the exception of these large biting flies! Campsites with large and well-maintained but very close together.

Wow

If you want a campground that has it all, Pennyrile State Park is where you want to be!

It has a GORGEOUS white sand beach with breathtaking blue water. Crazy to see that in KY!

Explore their caves, kayaking, canoeing, basketball and so much more! They even offer a wrangler campground if you…
