About The Narrows

The Narrows is a family-friendly campground on Barren River Lake, perfect for water lovers and anglers. The Narrows Campground is a 92-site area located near a marina and boat launch ramp. It is a moderately sized campground that has attracted many folks to return year after year. There are two loops open the full camping season.

Recreation

Boating and fishing are popular pastimes at The Narrows. Walk down to the shoreline and fish amongst the weeping willows or take off by boat to fish in a quiet setting at Coon, Green, Beaver or Skaggs Creek. The Narrows campground is also near open waters for tubing, skiing or wakeboarding.
The campground backs into the Lindsey Nature Trail, where hikers can look of the steep limestone cliffs to get panoramic views of the lake while listening to the cicada's buzz throughout the afternoon. Or take a hike at dusk to hear the seasonal nighthawk call in the night.

Facilities

Each campsite has a water hook-up and electricity available during the months of May through September. The campground has an amphitheater, beach volleyball court, horseshoe pit, and an open grassy area to set up corn hole boards. Just across the road there is a picnic pavilion available for advanced reservation and includes an playground to explore. This campground is closed during winter months.

Natural Features

Find a place uphill along the cliffs or down at the gently sloping shoreline. Explore the islands between The Narrows and Bailey's Point you may just catch the glimpse of a deer that swam over for refuge.
