Kentuck Lake got its name from early settlers from Kentucky. The campground offers 31 campsites to choose from. They are available for either tent or RV camping. Depending on the time of year for your visit, these sites will be available either by reservation or on a first come, first served basis. They are labeled on the website which you can access below.
