Overview

Overview

Situated along Kentucky's Highland Rim, Holmes Bend Campground is surrounded by forested tracks, rolling meadows and the pristine banks of Green River Lake.

Natural Features:

Green River Lake area encompasses a total of some 32,000 acres in the central portion of Kentucky, creating countless recreational activities for visitors on the water and on land.

Recreation:

With 8,000 surface acres of water, the lake is an ideal place for boating. With ten boat ramps located around the shoreline, guests have plenty of room for fishing, jet skiing, wake boarding and more. Three full-service marinas are also located around the lake.

Fishing is a popular activity at Green River Lake: Walleye, crappie, white bass, channel catfish, muskie and bluegill are all found in abundance.

Hunters enjoy the surrounding land, with various habitats supporting deer, turkey, rabbit, quail, squirrel, dove and waterfowl.

There are also miles of trails that wind around the lake and along the shore, affording some of the most scenic views in the region.

Facilities:

Holmes Bend Campground offers 124 campsites, about 100 of which have electric hookups. Amenities like flush toilets, drinking water and showers provide a comfortable camping experience, and a playground, interpretive trail and swimming beach offer additional recreation opportunities.

Several historical attractions and National Parks are located within an hour of Green River Lake, including the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln and Mammoth Cave National Park.
