Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area is pleased to announce that all camping facilities are open for use. During the winter months a limited number of sites are available at the Bandy Creek Campground. Closing unused portions of the campground allows those facilities to be winterized, thereby saving significant amounts of funds on utility costs. With the coming of warmer weather, these areas are now opened in time for springtime campers.
Did You Know?
In the 1960's Congress requested the Army Corps of Engineers to study the feasibility of damming the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River just above the Devils Jump Rapid to create another reservoir. Had that happened Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area would never have existed.
