Piney Campground sits on the shores of Kentucky Lake, on the Tennessee-Kentucky border. Spend a relaxing day at your campsite along the water—or maybe you chose one that's tucked back into the woodlands. There are sites here for all kinds of campers: primitive tent sites, sites with water, electricity, and sewer hookups, and even some primitive cabins, so take your pick! The campground has access to many attractions in the park, including a planetarium, nature center, and elk and bison range. Visit in mid-September for the Camper’s Fair—which includes a flea market and RV showcase—held at Piney every year.

A unique place with a buffalo sanctuary nearby. Our site was close to the lake and had clean facilities nearby. It was quiet in the spring and the lake was beautiful.
