Enjoyed two nights here in June 2021. Site 6 is waterfront with a great view - we enjoyed watching the osprey fly back and forth. The campsite is removed from the boat ramp, so very little extra traffic. We would return here in a heartbeat!

Nice pull thru site and the view is worth a thousand words!!! Great cell reception and sites are spaces generously apart. This campground is located on the northern part of LBL and is in close proximity to Grand Rivers situated between both KY and Barkley Lake.

Nickell is the northernmost campground in LBL. It is a self-service campground with 11 designated sites. The access road FR-102 is gravel and in pretty good shape aside from some large potholes. There is a large loop with a big open grassy area once you get to the pay station. From there, 3 short offshoots A, B & C - A is the boat ramp... more
