Highly recommend this campground. Lots of trees, privacy, paved roads. Definitely would stay here again. We camped at Canal COE in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this very nice COE park for 4 nights. We came during the week. The weekends are very crowded this time of the year. We were given a spot in the Nash Flats area, an area all paved that is usually used for groups. This spot was perfect for us, a quiet area, the front of our RV faced the Lake, with a beautiful view, and always had a nice breeze. No sewer hookup. The park itself, is very well taken care of. Some of the loops are a little more crowded than others. It just depends what you like. Verizon/Sprint worked well. Be careful going into any grassy or wooded area with your pups. The ticks are very bad this time of year. The only thing is that golf carts are allowed in the park and they can be a little noisy. This is a great park to visit the LBL area. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Canal COE in a Motorhome.

Another nice COE campground with large spacious sites throughout. Our site, #61, had a newer picnic table and large decorative stones/boulders leading down to the water. You could walk down to the shoreline to fish, whereas some of the waterfront sites are not accessible. Visitors were charged $3 per car. Peaceful & quiet family campground. Would definitely return if in the area. We camped at Canal COE in a Travel Trailer.

Had a pull-thru site, one of a few along the canal. Nice spot but not very near restrooms. A nice campground as usual for the corp. All hosts were very nice and helpful. There was a swimming beach. We camped at Canal COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Really nice. Close to Pattis Settlement and Grand Rivers. Seniors get 50% off. A bargain. Beach, fishing, hiking. We camped at Canal COE in a Motorhome.

I gave this park a 10. If you want to spend time in the Kentucky-Barkley Lake area this is a great spot. And it is half price for those 62 and older with your senior access card. The price above shows the regular fee. There are many different areas; some older, some newer; some are level, others not so. Located at the north end of the trace which travels through the LBL (land between the lakes). The park is woods mainly, with one open area for folks who cannot survive without satellite dishes. Not so very far off interstate 24 for those traveling through. Not open year round. Restaurants located nearby in Grand Rivers. We camped at Canal COE in a Motorhome.

Rate is for seniors. We had a great waterfront site. If you want sewer, reserve ahead. We had view of ships as they passed through the lake. Nice biking area. Great for family. Many stay 2 weeks at a time - the max. You can change sites for a second weeks stay & then must leave. Don't miss driving the trace, much to see! We camped at Canal COE in a Motorhome.

COE parks are so beautiful and with the Golden Age pass, a real bargain. Easily reached, from I-24, we were glad to get a site without a reservation. The showers were so far apart, we didn't use them. We did not have a sewer hookup, although there are some available. Our site was not shady, although some were. I think there is a beach and there is a boat ramp. If we were to stay here again, we would have made a reservation for a different site. We camped at Canal COE in a Motorhome.

We love this park. Sites on the lake side are beautiful and always breezy. Sites on the cove side are still waterfront but get kind of stagnant in the summer because there is no breeze but they are super shady. All sites are crushed gravel. This is by far our favorite campground in the LBL area. We camped at Canal COE in a Travel Trailer.

This park is close to I-24, but some of the sites are small and hard to get into. Sites 21 to 35 are probably the best, with site 35 a first come first serve. Reservations are best made if you are staying over the weekend. We camped at Canal COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Mostly shaded sites with well trimmed trees. Access lanes are narrow and backing a big rig between tree trunks into some sites is a bit tricky. Site required some leveling. Campground is in woods with little grass; therefore, dusty. Restrooms are clean; outdoor laundry facilities. TV reception is adequate with antenna. Campground is lovely, and there are a couple of nice, but short nature trails. We camped at Canal COE in a Fifth Wheel.

A very nice COE campground with pleasant and accommodating hosts. Our stay was quiet and restful, with no unpleasant experiences. The bathrooms/showers were clean and well maintained. Some of the sites and roads are a little tight for big rigs and multiple slideouts...just as you would expect in a COE park. Overall just a nice well maintained park on the shore of Lake Barkley. We camped at Canal COE in a Tent.

This is a beautiful Corps of Engineers park on the lake. We chose a beach front site, without sewer hook up, (no. 60), which provided a wonderful view of the lake. However, the site was so difficult to back into, I cannot recommend it for a forty foot motorhome. Also, the park was not very well maintained trash wise, which is most unusual for a C of E operation. We paid the senior pass rate. We would stay here again. We camped at Canal COE in a Motorhome.

Took a site in the trees to save a few dollars since we were only staying for one night. Check-in people were super nice. After getting set up, I rode my bike through the various loops near the lake. Some would be hard to back in to with a rig over 28 feet. Some have steep entry roads. I did notice that the bath house had a nice washer and dryer. We camped at Canal COE in a Travel Trailer.

Nice pretty park. Price reflects the Golden Age Access pass. They had several price ranges-if you wanted a water view the price went up a few dollars. In my opinion the water view was still obstructed by trees. There were lots of campsites here. Management was nice at check in & after that, no hassles about anything. Nice place to camp for visiting Land Between the Lakes as it is located right at the beginning of "The Trace." We camped at Canal COE in a Motorhome.
