Dog Creek Campground
We can only speculate how Dog Creek got its name. Maybe a dog was lost or found or born here, way back when. We do know the Army Corps of Engineers named this campground after the nearby stream, Dog Creek, which flows into Nolin Lake, an impoundment of the Nolin River. The name Nolin comes from early area settlers. The settlers were over-nighting on the river, and a young girl named Lynn wandered away from the riverside camp and became lost. Other members of the group looked for her but to no avail, returning to camp day after day, uttering the words, “No Lynn,” giving the river and later the lake their names. The father, after giving up on Lynn, died of a broken heart. You will not want to wander away from Dog Creek Campground, with its many lakeside sites overlooking Nolin Lake, but you may get lost in a world of fun and relaxation.
We cannot find this location: please try again.
