We are enroute back from a trip that included a long weekend in LBL 2 weekends ago. We stayed at Aurora Oaks Campground in Aurora, KY. We had a great experience. Aurora Oaks is one of those private campgrounds that is being brought back to life by new owners. We seem to be coming across a few campgrounds like that these days. Aurora Oaks is in transition -- fortunately an upward transition. For us it was a good home base for the activities we had in Grand Rivers and in Benton, KY. The owner, Mike, and his family were attentive and welcoming hosts.
Wherever you decide to stay in LBL, you may want to be sure the campground is open. It is impossible to accurately describe the devastation still evident in Western Ky from the January ice storms. We were originally going to stay at COE Canal Campground. However, our reservations were canceled with a delayed opening of the campground. Canal campground is still closed. We did drive through Hileman Ferry. It is open and did have several very nice scenic sites (some reservable). Campgrounds are open -- just not all of them, yet.
