Eddy Creek Weekend
We are located at Eddy Creek Campground for a weekend get a way. The Forest Service and CEO campgrounds do not open till March 1st. and April 1st. in case of the CEO grounds.

The Eddy Creek Marina Camp Ground is somewhat of an after thought for the development. The marina is the primarily function of the facility and a camp ground seems to be a side line. Many of the sites are leased on a seasonal basis with fifth wheel trailers and porches and decks attached. At this early Spring time, we and one other site is occupied. We can view the lake from here, Lake Barkley but in summer months a view would be difficult due to trees. The Marina offers an excellent boat launch, maintenance, storage and a good restaurant. We would not recommend this camp ground unless all else fails.
Next weekend we may try our hand at "dry camping". See "Winter Seclusion" post. We visited the site today and love the view of Kentucky Lake and the seclusion. No campers there this weekend. Our Dog Bailey truly enjoyed the day, running along the water with all the new smells. Of course she loved the head out the window ride in the area.
