The Narrows is a family-friendly campground on Barren River Lake, perfect for water lovers and anglers. The Narrows Campground is a 92-site area located near a marina and boat launch ramp. It is a moderately sized campground that has attracted many folks to return year after year. There are two loops open the full camping season.

Each campsite has a water hook-up and electricity available during the months of May through September. The campground has an amphitheater, beach volleyball court, horseshoe pit, and an open grassy area to set up corn hole boards. Just across the road there is a picnic pavilion available for advanced reservation and includes an playground to explore. This campground is closed during winter months.

Nearby attractions

Just up the lake from The Narrows is the Barren River Lake State Resort Park host of the Glasgow Highland Games. The Narrows Marina is a short drive just outside the campground. Day trips to other local area attractions are the National Corvette Museum, Kentucky Down Under, Diamond Caverns, and Barren River State Resort Park. There are several other family attractions within the Glasgow, Bowling Green and Cave City region. Visitors can also explore Mammoth Cave National Park, an hour north of the campground.

Natural feaures

Find a place uphill along the cliffs or down at the gently sloping shoreline. Explore the islands between The Narrows and Bailey's Point you may just catch the glimpse of a deer that swam over for refuge.

Recreation

Boating and fishing are popular pastimes at The Narrows. Walk down to the shoreline and fish amongst the weeping willows or take off by boat to fish in a quiet setting at Coon, Green, Beaver or Skaggs Creek. The Narrows campground is also near open waters for tubing, skiing or wakeboarding. The campground backs into the Lindsey Nature Trail, where hikers can look of the steep limestone cliffs to get panoramic views of the lake while listening to the cicada's buzz throughout the afternoon. Or take a hike at dusk to hear the seasonal nighthawk call in the night.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
