Overview

Overview

The Narrows is a family-friendly campground on Barren River Lake, perfect for water lovers and anglers.

The Narrows Campground is a 92-site area located near a marina and boat launch ramp. There are two loops open the full camping season.

Natural Features:

The 10,000-acre Barren River Lake is surrounded by wooded hillsides in south-central Kentucky.

Find a place uphill along the cliffs or down at the gently sloping shoreline. Explore the islands between The Narrows and Baileys Point – you may even catch a glimpse of a deer swimming over for refuge.

Recreation:

Boating and fishing are the popular pastimes at The Narrows. Walk down to the shoreline and fish amongst the weeping willows or take off by boat to fish in a quieter setting at Coon, Green, Beaver, or Skaggs creeks. If fishing isn’t your interest, The Narrows campground is close to more open waters for tubing, skiing, or wakeboarding.

The campground backs into the Lindsey Nature Trail, where hikers can view the steep limestone cliffs and take in panoramic views of the lake while listening to the cicada’s buzz throughout the afternoon. After dinner, take a hike at dusk to hear the seasonal nighthawk call.

Facilities:

Each site has water hook ups and electric available during the months of May through September. The campground has an amphitheater, playground, beach volleyball court, horseshoe pit, and open grassy areas to set up corn hole boards. Just across from the campground, there is a reservable picnic pavilion with another playground to explore.

Nearby Attractions:

Just up the lake from The Narrows is the Barren River Lake State Resort Park, host of the Glasgow Highland Games. The Narrows Marina is a short drive just outside the campground. Day trips to other local area attractions include: the National Corvette Museum, Kentucky Down Under, and Diamond Caverns. There are several other family attractions within the Glasgow, Bowling Green, and Cave City region. Visitors can explore Mammoth Cave National Park, an hour north of the campground.
