This is the worst COE park we have stayed in. Here for 2 weeks and the grass was never cut. Had an issue with the breaker at the post tripping about halfway through the stay. Called the park ranger early in the morning. He said maintenance would show up that day or the next day. If they ever showed we don't know it. Didn't have another issue with electricity the rest of the stay. Why do I rate as high? The area has some great sites to visit. We camped at Canal COE in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

A good area to visit. Some tourist traps but overall good.

The sites are narrow in the front and wide in the back. The entire three days we were there, we watched everyone struggle to back into their sites. We had no help and it took us 1/2 hour to get situated. If you are lucky to have help you might get your rig into you site in about 20 min. Sites are huge. You can park a boat or anything else with your rig. We camped at Canal COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We saw the Bison and Elk. Get up early and go!! Grand River is a neat little town. Supermarket was very quaint. Do not miss the opportunity to eat at Patti's. It has gotten many awards and the food was delicious!!!

This is a nice park, but I'm surprised at how close together the sites are. Most COE parks we've been to are more spacious. Our site, #55, was tight to get into with our 34' RV and the full hook-up sites were even worse. There are some pull-thru sites that looked OK. We camped at Canal COE in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of the nicest campgrounds we have ever stayed. The staff of volunteers are friendly and helpful. The sites are large and fairly level and they have recently redone several of them. It is quite and a great family destination. The roads are paved and the parking site is gravel. A favorite restaurant of ours is in the nearby town of Grand Rivers (Patty's 1880). They have a few full hook-ups but most are w/e. A great place to spend a day or more. We will definitely return. We camped at Canal COE in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Shopping and restaurants in the town of Grand Rivers.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
