Five miles off paved roads and no electricity or running water.

Located at Land Between the Lakes at the south end. This campground has about 18 sites. You can can camp near the water or back in the woods. The sites have concrete picnic tables, fire rings and gravel for parking and to set up your site. As m motioned, no electricity or running water. Nearest water point is about five miles away at the South welcome center. Vault toilet (one seat). Sites are close but not crowded. There is a small no wake lake next to the site and lake Barkley is 50 yards away. There is also a boat ramp into Lake Barkley a quarter mile away. This is a great site for relaxing and fishing.

Primitive camping with your toys in tow

You can drive all your stuff in and set up base camp then go play on the lake. Well kept roads, gravel. I would get a map that shows all the gravel roads that connect from the visitors center.

If you like primitive......

This is the place. You do get to drive in though and a boat ramp for your toys. Bring your batteries and bug spray , beautiful area!
