Wrangler Campground is bordered by lake Barkley and Fords Bay. Designed for trail riding and wagons year around it features stalls and picket areas in their 220 well-defined and roomy camp sites. Some have electric, water and sewer. There is also several dump stations for livingquarter campers. Primitive sites and 12 primitive cabins are available for nightly rental and campers have access to bathhouses. There is a day parking area that has direct access to trailheads. The Outpost has daytime hours and there are farrier and blacksmith services on weekends. There is an activity court, play ground, and it provides a great place for a wedding or group gathering. Cowboy church is seasonal. Deer hunting season in October and November may restrict some trails. Pets must be kept on a leash and not left unattended. All horses require proof of current cogginsand a veterinary health certificate. Stallions must be kept in a stall or trailer at night. On a personal note, our family of five children have enjoyed these trails for many years. From a youngster riding a buddy seat to now empty nesters we still find LBL one of our favorite places to relax and ride. With 100 miles of interchanging loops we can easily ride for a week. The variety of trails keeps us coming back. You can choose to ride wooded trails, wagon roads, open fields or lakeside. Trails are easy and a good place to start out young children and young horses. I am always impressed with the wonderful family atmosphere and staff is friendly and helpful. On our last trip we rented stalls for our horses to play tourist for a day and visited the Elk and Bison Prarie and Visitors Center. Interesting history in this part of Ky. Make reservations on line or by phone and well in advance. We have stayed in different parts of the Campground and found every site to be enjoyable.

We have passed by LBL in our boat and I loved the place from the water. I am sure I will love it even more on horseback. Hopefully will get there soon. Thanks for the overview.
