Campers to find fewer sites at Barren River Lake this spring, summer and fall

   Campers will find fewer sites available this camping season at Barren River Lake. 
   To increase campground efficiency and provide better service for those campsites that are open, portions of Barren River Lake campgrounds may be closed during non-peak periods throughout the spring, summer and fall, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Louisville Division.
   At Barren River Lake this further means that campers may not be able to reserve certain sites for longer than the weekend (Friday through Sunday) in some portions of the campground during non-peak periods throughout the spring, summer, and fall.
   If all open sites are filled or reserved then closed portions may be opened for a short period on a first-come, first-served basis to accommodate additional campers.
   The only campgrounds affected by the changes are those at Barren River, Green River, Nolin River and Rough River lakes.
   Specific information for all campgrounds in the Louisville District can be found by visiting or by calling the project office, (270) 646-2055
