Trace Branch Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Trace Branch Recreation Area is in the back of beyond—neither on the way to anywhere nor easy to reach. Tortuous roads try to find a way through Perry and Leslie Counties toward Buckhorn Lake, which is an impoundment of the Middle Fork Kentucky River. And after you begin to think Trace Branch is a figment of a mapmaker’s mind, a road leads steeply down to a secluded, well-kept Army Corps of Engineers campground.

Once you get here, there’s not a whole lot to do, unless relaxation is on the agenda. Sure, you can swim, fish, and boat, maybe throw some horseshoes or maybe not."
