Buckhorn Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"There is no easy way to reach Buckhorn Lake, but once you get here you will be rewarded. Here, the Middle Fork Kentucky River is dammed, forming a narrow, twisting, spindly snake of a lake. Visitors to this eastern Kentucky destination can enjoy not only the lake but also the tailwaters below the dam.
It is below the dam, along these tailwaters, where Buckhorn Campground lies, enabling visitors to enjoy Buckhorn Lake and the river, too, along with some land-based recreation in these crumpled Kentucky mountains."
