Gatlin Point Campground Professional Review and Guide
"This is a boater’s campground, which is only fitting for a camp located at Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area. Gatlin Point Campground overlooks two lakes—Bards Lake and Lake Barkley. However, only a low dam over which a paved road is laid separates these lakes. A north-facing wooded hill overlooking both impoundments is the setting for this campground.
Bards Lake, at 320 acres, is divided from Lake Barkley by the dam visible from the campground. This is a no-wake lake with a primitive gravel launch at the low point of the campground. Canoers and kayakers will especially enjoy smaller Bards Lake, which is less windy than Lake Barkley and has no current to battle."
