If Waitsboro Campground were private land, it would go for big, big bucks. The scenery is outstanding. The campground is built just below a cliffside bluff that overlooks a big bend in the Cumberland River arm of Lake Cumberland. Luckily for us tent campers, we can overnight here—for a fee, of course—but it’s much cheaper than buying such a piece of property. This landscape offers a commanding view of the water below as it curves off into the distance in both directions. To make a good thing even better, the Army Corps of Engineers used all their design skills to integrate the facility into the uneven yet aesthetically appealing terrain, resulting in a campground where it is hard to pick the best sites, since there are so many neat ones. To make a better thing even better, the shoreline at Waitsboro offers a place to swim, a boat ramp and dock, and even a little waterfall uphill from the picnic area.
