Energy Lake Campground sits next to an inland lake separated from Lake Barkley by an earthen dam. It offers 48 well-defined sites in a wooded area with 35 electrical hookups capable of handling tents to motorhomes.
Campers have access to a swimming beach area, playground, activity field, canoe and kayak rentals, and hiking trails. Energy is a favorite camping spot for scout troops, school groups, reunions, and team building.
Following the large amount of rainfall over the holiday weekend, canoe rentals at Energy Lake Campground will be unavailable until further notice. Canoe and kayak rentals are still available at Woodlands Nature Station.
