Oak Branch Trail #444, located on London Ranger District, goes from Grove Drive-In Campground to the boat ramp at Grove Marina on Laurel River Lake. The trail ends at the water's edge. It does not provide access to the marina unless the lake's water level is low.
Grove Drive-In Campground, a US Fee Area, is located on a wooded ridge above Laurel River Lake. Grove Marina is a full-service marina located within 1/2-mile of the campground. The privately-owned marina is operated under a special-use permit with the U.S. Forest Service. The marina is open year round.
Laurel River Lake features 5,600 acres of clear, deep water and nearly 200 miles of tree-lined shore. The quiet coves and cliff-lined shores offer relaxation and quiet reflection, as well as boating, fishing, skiing and scuba diving in one of the deepest and cleanest lakes in Kentucky.
