Overview

Overview

Holly Bay, located two miles north of the Laurel River Dam, sits on the west side of Laurel River Lake. Visitors enjoy the campground for its proximity to the water and beautifully forested location. Plus, Holly Bay is ideal for activities like power boating, canoeing and fishing.

The forest was named after Daniel Boone, a famous frontiersman and explorer who settled in Kentucky in the late 18th century.

Natural Features:

Most campsites are surrounded by a mixture of hardwood trees that provide picture-perfect colors in autumn. Laurel River Lake spans 5,600 acres of deep, clear water and 192 miles of cliff-lined shore. Bountiful hills from the Appalachian foothills create a backdrop for the lake area.

Recreation:

Boating and water skiing are a big hit. A boat ramp and fish cleaning station are located a short distance from the campground.

Hikers take pleasure in the 4.2-mile Sheltowee Trace Trail that leads from the campground to the dam.

Facilities:

The campground offers single and double-family campsites, some of which have 20, 30 or 50-amp electric hookups. Some campsites overlook the lake.

Flush toilets (one is accessible), two shower houses, drinking water and a dump station are provided. Firewood and ice are available for purchase. Educational programs are held during the summer.

Nearby Attractions:

Head to the Cumberland Falls Trail that begins at Cumberland Falls and ends at the mouth of the Laurel River. This trail is a 30-45 minute drive from the campground.
