General Burnside Island State Park Campground
At the point where the state park is currently was a high point around which the Cumberland River made a sharp bend. When the river was dammed downstream and Lake Cumberland formed, an island was formed on the high point, creating what has become General Burnside Island State Park. The Big South Fork of the Cumberland meets the main part of the river at the south end of the island, adding another watery venue that can be explored from the park. The 430-acre island is reached by bridge. The campground is located in rolling wooded terrain and offers a quiet setting. The various loops offer different types of campsites.
