Campground Description

Beautiful, mountainous terrain in the heart of Kentucky coal country, with a historic log structure near the dam. Buckhorn Lake is located in the Cumberland Plateau of eastern Kentucky and a short drive from the Daniel Boone National Forest and the Red River Gorge Geological Area. The lake was completed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 1961. Quaint fishing spots dot the scenic lake while unique camping options include cable TV access or boat-in campsites. For camping reservations at this and other Corps campgrounds, please call toll-free 1-877-444-6777 (TDD: 877833-6777; INTL: 518-885-3639) or visit the website http://www.ReserveUSA.com.
