Wrangler's Camp in LBL

Home | Land Between The Lakes | Wrangler's Camp

Wranglers Campground in LBLWrangler's Campground, with 220 camping sites, is one of the premiere horse camps in the Southeast, featuring over 100 miles of horse and wagon trails in one of the most scenic spots in Land Between The Lakes.  Bordered by Lake Barkley and Fords Bay on the east and tucked between Laura Furnace Creek and Lick Creek on the west, it is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery LBL has to offer.

Wrangler's Campground is the only place in Land Between The Lakes designed for horseback riders and wagons.  It features stalls, hitching posts, and hot showers, so it is well-equipped to handle both horse and rider.  For those who don't own their own, Wrangler's Campground offers horses for rent.

Some of the most historic sites in LBL can be viewed along the trails, including the ruins of the Laura Iron Furnace; the home of Nathan Futrell, who was said to be the youngest drummer in the Revolutionary War; and an enduring abandoned farm and homestead containing a tobacco barn, chicken coop, and shed.  The Wrangler's shoreline trail travels a peninsula just opposite a Kentucky state waterfowl refuge, offering riders a great view of the shorebirds housed there.
