Hidden treasure

Right on Lake Barkley where it joins Kentucky Lake. Over 200,000 acres of lake. We had sites 76 and 77. The roads to the sites have a lot of curves be careful not to clip your trailer on a tree. Our sites were easy to back in, plenty of room for the two tables that were there. The sites are gravel, but you do have water and electric hookups. Very quiet and peaceful place. Bath houses were clean and stocked, campground was clean. There is a beach area and also a playground for the kids. While your here be sure to go to the elk and bison prairie.

Great views!

Lots to do here, don’t hesitate to rent a boat and enjoy Douglas lake. This place is very clean and the staff are amazing, doing whatever it takes to help you. Your 20 minutes from Pigeon Forge and all the amenities it provides.

Worth a look

Roughly 100 spaces to camp, some are pull through, most are back in and there are several primitive campsites. The camp sites we seen are all gravel but mostly level. There is a small stream that runs through the camp ground also a playground, pool and the host other events. Year round spaces are available. The only real downfall is there is no sewer hookups, but they do pump out 2-3 times a week. It seems they are always working on making the place better.

Fun place! But…

We enjoyed our first trip to Brookville Lake. The camping area only provides a few areas with complete hookups. The area that we were in all the sites are on a slope which required a little extra setup than normal. The restroom/bath houses could use a total updating. They are a little rough and dirty. Don’t let this stop you from visiting, the lake is great and there is plenty to do.

Fishing lake

This is just a boat ramp for a local fishing lake sitting near the local water departments pump station. There is no camping here at all.
