When we arrived without reservations, we had to wait for 45 minutes because the host was not on premises. Finally, a really nice volunteer researched what sites would be available, returned and escorted us to a site, and got us registered. In all, this took two hours. We are big fans of COE CGs, and this is the first time we have encountered such a situation. If you are the host, you should be on-site doing your job.....that's why you get the free site. - hartk

Our site was a little tight. The gates are locked right at 10pm so don't be late. There were lots of families there with little one riding bikes everywhere, so it's very family friendly. Bath house was close and clean. - JLHickerson

Typical COE park - nice layout. Most sites are large and spaced out well. A few sites right on the river are smaller, and spaced closer than those off the river. One exception is site 48 which is very large (although spaced close to others. Sites are generally longer than given on the COE website. Many pull-through sites. In heavy rains, the CG may hold water in places. The trout fish hatchery is adjacent to the campground property and is worth a tour. The tours are unscheduled, but the hatchery is open to visitors between 7:30AM and 3:00PM. The hatchery staff is available to answer questions. Groceries, fuel and a hardware store are 2-3 miles away in Celina. Verizon coverage is 3/5, others non-existent. Fairly heavy tree canopy, so satellite reception is "find a hole in the trees". If you kayak or canoe, this is an ideal campground. There is a boat ramp at the CG, the take out is at the Donaldson City Park in Celina. At normal generation levels at the dam, the river moves at about 10 mph, which makes for a 1.5 to 2 hour trip to the take out. The river water is flat but moving, no water hazards, beautiful trip. - Bama Camper

Beautiful, remote campground on Dale Hollow Lake that is well-maintained. Only about 12 sites have 50 amp service. Nearest town is over 20 miles away, so take ample supplies when you go. About half the sites are shaded, and most are reasonably level. Lake swim area has clear water with sand/gravel bottom. Comfort stations are clean and accommodating. Enjoyed walleye and smallmouth bass fishing in the clear water lake. While campground was heavily occupied during weekends, occupancy rate during weekdays was only about 20%. - igor2brvn

Somewhat to very difficult severely twisty windy access road. I don't mind the road, even with a 40' RV, but, I certainly understand the problem. That said, we absolutely love this stunning, out of the way park. The pine beetles have taken their toll on some of the shade, but you can hardly envision this park with out going there. Great lake access and we go there as much as possible, at LEAST twice a year. I don't think any sites have sewers, dump station is convenient to get to though. A lot of the sites were, in the last year or two, were upgraded to 50 amp power pedestals. - djevanstn

Used this park as an over-nite. Small park, with water & electric at the site. Some sites would be difficult to level, but ours was not. Good space between each site. Hilly terraine around the campground. If rainy, some sites would be washed out. I personally don't care for the stone based sites, but it worked for one night. Can't speak for WIFI or TV because I don't go camping for those things. RR were convenient and clean, showers had good water pressure and were clean. - Dennis D

By far the worse state park in Tennessee. The roads are too narrow to navigate. Sites are un-level and badly sloped. Absolutely no television service or dish network satellite service. BUT, the number one reason this park is so bad is because of the park ranger, he is a bully on a power trip (the park ranger the night of 3/24, the rest of them were very nice). I would suggest finding another place to camp unless you like being pushed around by a man with a chip on his shoulder!! - Lennonandlisa Payne

The campground overall was small, but well laid out with lots of space in each spot for equipment and larger campers. That said, getting into the spaces was a little interesting as many people when we were here, had more than one vehicle in their space, so the access road (one-way) was that much narrower.
Our spot (#1) was easy to get into, although the width of the driveway into the space made getting in the dark a little interesting. During daylight it would be a snap to back into. There were spaces that could accommodate larger campers (5th wheels, etc.) but getting backed in could be an issue if your rig was longer than about 30' Our spot was mostly level (only a little off side-to-side) but some of the other spots were not particularly level. Check the descriptions on the reservation site as they seem to be accurate.
The bathrooms were kept spotless while we were here, and they were in good condition. There was a nice laundry room as well (washer and dryer, coin op.), with a three-well sink for washing dishes. The electrical service was a little older, but in good condition, and the water pressure was good. The locations of the services was right at the edge of the pad so getting to them was a snap.
Dump station located at the exit: one hole only. Good condition, and very clean. Lots of space to maneuver, easy-in, easy-out.
Park staff were very friendly and accommodating: some of the best service on a holiday weekend that I've ever had. (Tenn. parks always seem to have great park staff.) The park had lots to do as well (SUP, kayak, canoe, and fishing boat rentals on the lake, sand volleyball, horseshoes, ping pong, etc.) as well as a large swimming pool.
Be advised that there is no wireless and no camp store, although there is a small gift shop at the park office. Check in was easy, as were reservations, and the park roads were in good shape with no local traffic to speak of. Firewood is available outside the park, but not inside. - WrongWayRandall

This campground is directly accross the road from Barren River Lake Park south of Glasgow 12 miles on Hwy 31W. This is a bare bones campground, with no shower/bath house, but it is kept clean, neat and tidy. We were staying in the area more than 14 days so the state park would not work for us and found this to be adequate. The manager is actually a park ranger also, so he is very familiar and helpful with knowledge of the area. Caution however: There is no swimming pool, playground equipment, or facilities of any kind. This is however a good place to get away from the crowds if you want peace and privacy. - pipelnrwife

Stayed midweek the 3rd week of June. Camp ground was not half full. Most of the FHU sites were taken. Restrooms and showers were clean and had good pressure and hot water. All utilities at the site were fine. Sites do share water, so make sure you have extra hose. It seems that at KY State Park CG, the odd # sites are the ones with the water on the wrong side and you will need extra hose. The grass area in the center of the loop is used for boat and extra vehicle parking. Kids enjoyed pool, playground, and CG activities. Nice and quiet at night. Saw deer and turkeys. - melandme

Nice state park with sites set in groups of loops. Good separation between sites. We had a fhu/50a site with a picnic table, fire ring, lantern hook, asphalt pad & cement patio. Water spigots are shared between 2 sites, so depending on which site you get, your water could come to your wet bay side or across your patio & under your RV. We were here in mid-October & the park was only about 1/3 full. There were more RV's in the lower section than the upper. Well stocked campstore, small putt-putt, restrooms/showers, laundry, playground, marina & a full service lodge are all on site. The restrooms/showers were typical state park cement block, but were clean & bright. $1 to wash/dry laundry. Their golf course is at the entrance to the park. This is a nice state park in a pretty region of Kentucky. I would recommend it. - leaf peeper

Beautiful quiet park. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place. Good Verizon signal. Clean large sites. Lots of wildlife. Decent golf course and mini golf. Lodge has good food and friendly servers. - PositiveOutlook

My daughter and I stayed here for two nights for a mother-daughter weekend. We loved this campground. The roads right before you get to the campground contain some very tight turns and are narrow, so make sure to take your time! Once there, though, we just loved this campground. We were within a quick walk to the beach area and did lots of swimming (make sure to wear water shoes, the ground under the water was very rocky and not great for bare feet), and we did visit the bathrooms a few times and they were clean and nice. The showers, though we didn't use them, looked very nice! Our spot was roomy and easy to back into. We had water and electric hookups at our campsite and there was a dump station at the campground that we used. The hosts were super friendly as well! We had a great time at this campground! - The Glamper Campers

We had a beautiful waterfront site, with water & electric, as many are. The bathrooms & showers were clean & funtional. The roads into this out of the way park, are an experience in themselves, but no problem if you take your time, many hairpin curves, just watch out for the Crazy garbage truck driver, who nearly took us out on one of the 15 mph turns at over 50. This park should be rated at 10, but because the folks that have the current contract aren't real big on grounds maintenance, grass hasn't been mowed for at least 3-4 weeks, great for ticks & chiggers, also don't seem to be up on rules enforcement, as we observed teenagers swimming in unautorized areas, dogs not only Not on a 6 ft. leash, (one was on a 20ft leash), but also watched the attendant drive by one man with his dog not on a leash at all, and just wave at him. - bukhrn

I stayed here because it was my closest alternative when I found out that all sites at Baileys Point COE were full. Boy was this a compromise! This was one of the worst places I have ever stayed. Even after using all of my leveling blocks, the RV still listed to the rear. The water hookup was so far away from the site - on the 'wrong' side - that I didn't even bother to hook up the water line. - DD Jones

Lots of room at the sites. Some sites would be difficult to level a large rig or to pull into as some have steep slopes in or out of site. Recommend driving around the park first to see where your rig will work then go back to gate to pay and mark your site. Plenty of shade trees. Decent bathrooms. Shower water pressure good. Tidy state park, well maintained. Great value. - gasolinebutt

needed a place to stay was A great place tough to turn in with my 38 foot 5th wheel camp site number 2 is not level front to back made it very hard to get it level its on a hill but level side to side didn't need any blocks. Was tough to get the angle on my TV cause of the downward slope but was OK. some of the other sites was better but was already booked If I stay again Id pick the same site I know what to do and it was my 3rd trip out with a camper so I'm new. I didnt use the showers I have one in my 5th wheel. I normally go look them over but I didn't this time. Now i tow with a HDT and I am afraid that I will not fit in this Park. tight turns with downward hills at a odd angle if your trailer is low or close to the bed rails be careful walk the route to the camp site if you have too. Or ask them to show you the site before you drive too it and get into a tight spot - Tommy3guns

Sites on loop A are pretty large but are quite close to one another. Loop B sites are also close together and some are not very big. B also has more sites that would be a challenge to level. All site pads are gravel and have a very nice picnic table/fire ring area. All sites are E/W, but bring extra hose if you plan to use the water, since the water station for each site is shared with neighboring site(s) and could be pretty far from your intake location. Over the air TV signal good (at least in loop A which is higher elevation). Verizon very slow. When I was there, the grass was very long. Small swimming beach downhill from Loop A. Large marina and boat ramp easy walk from campground. - aowcarol

Nice and quiet state park. Kind of off the beaten path, but but was easy to get to. Paved interior roads and gravel campsites. Most had nice views of the lake, I would not mind staying here again. - Doxie Mom

Rate reflects senior pass. This is a very nice COE campground, sites and campgrounds were very clean, as well as the restrooms and showers and laundry room. I loaded the washing machine and put money in and the machine did not work. I reported this to the gate attendant and was told they weren't responsible for the machines and was told the lady that owned the machines would be by to see me. I suggested they put a note on the machine stating it was out of order and again was told it was not their responsibility. I never saw the lady that owns the machines and on our last day, there still was not a sign in the laundry room. It wasn't about the money, but rather the fact the machine did not work and they could have posted a note that it did not work so other campers would be aware. We did like the campground so we would stay here again if in the area. - stella fouche
