Barren River Lake is the perfect location for all kinds of aquatic activities as it encompasses more than 10,000 acres. Barren River is home to several popular camping areas including Bailey’s Point, The Narrows and Tailwater. All three campgrounds offer numerous amenities including individual water and electrical hookups, playgrounds, volleyball areas and more.

Boating is another beloved activity on Barren Lake as it offers boat ramps at all recreation areas such as Barren River Lake State Resort Park, Beaver Creek Resort and Walnut Creek Marina, to name a few. While camping and boating are popular, fishing is the most enjoyed thanks to the Lake’s three fishing piers and its variety of fish. Among these fish are striped bass, crappie, brim, largemouth bass, hybrid bass and numerous kinds of catfish.

Fishing is such a famous activity here that the Lake served as the site of the 2011 Kentucky Bass Fishing Federation Tournament, which aired on ESPN.
