We only drove a short distance on an interstate, and most of the time on small rural US & county roads, hilly and tree lined. We weren't sure if we would see a Welcome to Kentucky sign on these small roads, but there it was.
The closest town to our COE campground was to the south east called Scottsville, and it was a very small town surrounded by farmland. Not a very convienant place but lovely bacause we are on the end of a peninsula into the lake, and a very popular vacation spot for families.
We arrived at Bailey's Point on Barren River Lake, KY 30 miles east of Bowling Green, an Army Corp of Engineers campground. The park is beautiful and very reasonable, especially after our 50% discount for using our “Golden Age” Pass that Larry just got in Smokey Mtn Nat’l Park. We are now officially “seniors”.
Over the next few days inbetween touring we walked a little on the loops of the camp sections but it is very hot and very humid. We've had a few thunder storms come through in the evenings and during the night. Oh, and we have fireflies again. Very cool.
The photos are a combination of several days showing the park.
