2 Reviews of Tailwater Below Dam

Very nice place to camp. It's very peaceful and everyone we met was nice to talk to. We had site 14 which is well shaded and we could fish off of the bank. Recommend to everyone.


Tailwater Recreation Area is located below Barren River Lake Dam across from Port Oliver Recreation Area.

A well manicured and kept area. The day use area is right next to the spillway. There is a pavilion, parking area, playground and single picnic areas. There's also a HUGE field, basketball hoop and nature trail.

The Campground is long and runs along the river. At the very end is a group campground in the woods. About halfway down is the Boatramp, there is no direct access to the river from any of the sites.

The sites along the river are a little more private. The middle sites are close and not much privacy. Good jump off area for other activities.
