Axtel is another splendid CoE property. Well-maintained, clean, quiet, and comfortable. A huge sandy beach is located near the entrance. The campground winds around a cove in two directions and many sites have a view of the water. The A loop has the tightest turns and the least attractive sites, including a loud buzzing water treatment plant and road noise directly behind. Best sites are in Areas B-E with plenty of shade, and large gravel pads. Many sites in these sections have direct access to the water where you can beach your boat, fish, or jump in for a swim. Several Buddy sites are also available for camping with friends. Area G (numbered 121-137 sites) are located on a hill without access to the lake, but most have good views and deep shade.

Areas I and H are only open on holiday weekends. Both are along the tail waters instead of the main lake. Area I is located high on the cliffs, while Area H is down near the water.

We were here on a busy summer weekend and the CG was quiet at night. Two hosts are on property and the CoE rangers patrol regularly. Really nice lake destination and we will be sure to stay here again. We camped at Axtel Campground - COE in a Motorhome.

McDaniel, KY Axtel COE Campground. Great COE campground with waterfront and water view sites. Most sites require some leveling but didn't see any extreme. There are some big rig friendly sites just make sure you research or call to inquire. W/E or Electric Only or Nonelectric sites available, dump station onsite. Each site has gravel/blacktop pad, fire ring, picnic table and fish cleaning station. There is a beach and playground. Very calm campground in our eyes even when mostly full. Great places to fish from shore or there is marina across street. Bathhouses pretty standard, charmin toilet paper!! No hand soap though, clean. Verizon and ATT worked very well no issues. One negative thing but not huge no selling of firewood or ice within campground had to go 1 mile up the road to hardware store to get. Roads to get to campground not bad typical lake country roads once off major but very doable just take your time. We camped at Axtel Campground - COE in a Travel Trailer.

Well laid out campground although larger vehicles will have limited site availability due to turn-around areas. Gravel sites are well maintained with new metal picnic tables, large lantern pole (hook for anything), and elevated, fish cleaning table. Large number of sites directly on lake. Area B best during summer months since wind crosses lake. Large beach. Check-in 5:00 pm; check-out 4:30 pm. Discount (50%) for individuals Senior citizens and disabled (must have appropriate federal parks card); does not provide discount for active or retired military. New playground equipment. Marina nearby. Dump station centrally located (2 stalls but too close together to accommodate two large RVs). Water pressure low. Overall would return. Primitive area was closed but nice to walk through. We camped at Axtel Campground - COE in a Motorhome.
