    This is one of our favorite places to camp. It's a Army Corps Of Engineers campground located on Lake Barkley Tennessee just south of the Kentucky state line. It features 15 sites. All with electric and water hook ups. Clean bathrooms and showers are available. There is a swimming area a short walk from the camp sites and a small marina nearby. The campground is open from the first week of May through the first week of September. Sites on the water's edge are $20 and the rest are $19. There is a 50% discount if you have the access or senior pass. The campground usually fills up on weekends and holidays but is seldom very crowded during the week. Most of the sites are shaded most of the day. The marina store has very limited supplies, but there are two stores in the small town of Bumpus Mills about 5 miles away that have gas, groceries and fishing supplies. The town of Dover is about 10 miles away and has larger grocery stores, and restaurants. Watch your speed when driving through Dover or you WILL get a ticket.

    You can reserve sites at www.recreation.gov. Here is a slideshow of some photos we have taken during our camping trips there. We have had a few different types of campers before settling on the popup and photos of the other campers are also included.

    We ate the last of them about a week ago. I'll have to go back and catch some more before we eat good again.
