Fenton Campground Closed Indefinitely

lbl2GOLDEN POND, Ky. (4/4/14) — Land Between The Lakes closed Fenton Campground for camping until further notice.

The emergency decision came after assessing the damage from the storm that passed through the area Friday morning, April 4, 2014. Fenton boat ramp, fishing access, pavilion and trailhead for the Central Hardwoods Scenic Trail remain open to the public.

“The large amount of fast moving rain water being funneled down into Fenton has overwhelmed our bridges, streams, and some campsites at Fenton,” stated Gary Hawkins, Recreation Program Manager at Land Between The Lakes. He continued, “This last storm made Fenton unsafe for campers.”

All campers have evacuated the area. Camping remains available at the six designated campgrounds and twelve backcountry camping areas at Land Between The Lakes.

To stay informed of any temporary trail, road, and other closures at Land Between The Lakes, visit our official website at www.lbl.org or call (800) LBL-7077 or (270) 924-2000.
