Grove Campground is perched on a forested ridge above Laurel River Lake in Kentucky’s Daniel Boone National Forest. The lake, fed by the Laurel River, is considered one of the most scenic lakes in the state. Boating, fishing, hiking and biking are greatly enjoyed by campers.
Hikers, horseback riders and mountain bikers can trek more than 600 miles of road and trail in Daniel Boone National Forest. Duff Branch, Oak Branch, Fishing Point and Singing Hills Trails can all be accessed in the immediate area.
Anglers find prized catches of walleye, crappie, brown trout and rainbow trout at Laurel River Lake. Boating and swimming are also popular activities. A boat ramp is located nearby at Grove Marina.
The campground offers single and double family campsites, which have 20 and 30-amp electric hookups. Each site is equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring.
Flush toilets, drinking water and showers are provided. Ice and firewood are sold on-site. Limited groceries can be found at Grove Marina.
The campground overlooks the lake and is less than a mile from the shoreline. Laurel River Lake boasts 5,600 acres of deep, clear water and 192 miles of cliff-lined shores. Bountiful hills and valleys create a beautiful backdrop for the lake area.
The forest was named after Daniel Boone, a famous frontiersman and explorer who settled in Kentucky in the late 18th century.From Corbin, Kentucky, take Exit 25 from I-75, then take U.S. 25W west for 5 miles.
