Bailey Cove Campground
Bailey Cove is a beautiful forested campground. Due to the nearby boatramp, this facility is very popular when the ramp is in the water (full to 50' down). In addition to the boat ramp, there is also a day use area and hiking trail nearby. The boat ramp facility is very busy early in the season when the lake level is at its highest.
Each site has a tent pad, picnic table, raised fire ring, bear boxes, and paved parking spur. Brick pavers have been used to provide added accessibility.
