This is a nice campground, especially in the fall since it's located in the mountains and next to a reservoir where boating and fishing are readily accessible. The entrance is a little tricky since it goes downhill from the main road. We scraped our Class C jacks going in and out. A long Class A vehicle might have more trouble even approaching at an angle. The sites are nice. Some are paved and others are gravel. The restrooms are first class and very clean. Rt. 160 going east is quite crooked and somewhat narrow with a lot of large truck traffic. We had acceptable Verizon service and used our hotspot. We would rate the campground higher but our site was very littered with small paper, twisty ties, bottle caps and cigarette butts. The firepit was filthy also. We also noticed trash throughout the campground, which means that no one was picking up on a regular basis. All in all, a nice park and we would return if in the area. - Don & Jean G.

Campground is not well maintained. We noticed that vacated sites were not cleaned at anytime during our stay. Fire rings were filled with trash, not just wood ash, but filled with bottles, cans and food scraps. Campground rules are not enforced. Quiet hours mean nothing. This campground is a favorite with the locals. It's a shame the locals do not respect the campground. We have visited many COE campgrounds and had very good experiences. This COE campground was a major disappointment. - Paythebill

Our home base camp. Another excellent experience. Big lots with hookups on correct side. Clean bathrooms which the one on the hill is new. Patrolled regularly. - Deaton

Once again this year nothing has been done to fix the problems at this place. If you in a bind and it don't rain and you don't need their bathroom you may be ok. Other than that the urinal I spoke of in 2016 is still covered. Too cold to use the showers, heat inside or water temp not good. They didn't even clean up the leaves and twigs from the winter. Had to rake my concrete pad to keep from tracking. Limbs need trimmed they are low and could hit you trailer. So much potential for this park if they would work on it a little. - Deaton

Another home base park. They have worked on some sites adding new fire pits and fixing the grounds. Some still need attention. Bathrooms still very dated bare concrete floors with no heat and urinal covered up. Nice peaceful park. Mostly big trees shading everywhere. Trails to lake for boating and fishing. Beach within walking distance. - Deaton

After a rain I had a choice between a lake and a mud hole. I chose the mud hole. There was only a paved strip for the camper. No grass, no gravel, no pad beside. When it rained it was a river both in front and beside the camper. I built a bridge to get to the bathroom. I brought gravel the second night to keep from tracking. Similar problems beside me. Neighbor had grass but was full of water and ended up a mud hole. Bathrooms are terrible. Bare concrete. One urinal not working. Showers have no locks. Water temp changes at random. Wear flip flops!! I know other sites are nice. They could fix the others. I'd be pressed to return because 5 miles up the road is much nicer. - Deaton

We loved this campground set in a very beautiful mountain canyon on the middle fork of the Kentucky River. The staff was great during the 4th of July weekend. This campground is very popular with the locals and was very busy. The only drawback was the roads leading from Hyden, Ky. to the campground. Twenty miles of winding mountain road that needs maintenance. Fortunately not much traffic, but we did have difficulty on the last two miles when we met oncoming traffic. Not really for big rigs, but smaller campers do okay. Did not have WiFi as some sites say and cell service is very poor even in Hyden. We had to go all the way to Hazard to get cell service 40 miles away. The campground host offered the use of the campground's phone if we needed it. If you want to use satellite TV get a site on the water. - JC69

Very nice Corps of Engineers campground on Buckhorn Lake with adjacent boat ramp and recreation area. Hosts were outstanding. Of 40 sites (not counting the host site), 14 have water and electric, the rest are dry/primitive. The road in is 1 1/2 lanes for about 2 miles, with tight curves and some steep hills. Apparently very popular with local fishermen, especially on weekends. Plenty of parking inside the campground for boat trailers. No cell service and very poor TV reception. Would definitely return if we're in the area again. - DB_Engineer
