Our campground is perfect for those that love kayaking, swimming, floating, and fishing. We are in the middle of nowhere so you are away from civilization and you won't see any lights at night other than your campfire, the moon and stars and the amazing night sky.  We offer lazy river tubing, kayak rentals and also a shuttle service. The lazy river is 2 miles and usually takes 2.5 ro 3 hours or longer depending on how many times you stop.. We have multiple kayaking trip options ranging in length from 1 to 10 miles or more. There is great fishing in the creek and river and plenty of deep holes for swimming. Come enjoy the day relaxing on the water with friends and family in a tube or kayak while floating down Barren river. During your stay you are welcome to come up and hang out and mingle with the other campers, sing some karaoke, play some corn hole or cards, or whatever else yall wanna do. There is a playground area for the kids and new this year is putt putt pool... its fun for all ages!!

Site 13 - The Slab By The Barren
Best Camping Site ever
The location was great and everyone working there was super helpful and accommodating. The campsite was the perfect distance away from the city lights so every star in the night sky was visible and bright. Will defiantly be coming back here multiple times and will recommend to anyone and everyone I know

Creekside Peace
Once again this place leaves me wanting to come back again and again! It was a rainy weekend and we left a day early, but we still had a wonderful time tubing and swimming in the creek. Good fishing too! Can’t wait to go back!

Site 10 - The Slab By The Barren
Easy kayak let-in options
Carrie is very nice and hospitable for sure. Sites are clean and safe. This was my first primitive camping experience, so I was very glad to have a porta potty close by our site. There is a shower but we were only there one night so no need to use it. Easy let-in for kayaking at some of the sites so that was the greatest plus for sure!

Great place and people!!
First, the people here are so accommodating. I had a flat tire and they helped me out, faster than any service place. The porta potty’s were clean. Yes it is primitive camping with accommodations. Amazing first experience.

Girls weekend
I have been to the same tent site 3 times since June. We love camping at Carrie’s. The place is beautiful, peaceful, Carrie is a wonderful host. She came by and checked on us to see if we need anything. She told us where all the good fishing holes were. Camp site #3 is the best one. My grandkids love going there.
