Camped here for a week and rented a boat. Had a awesome time. Convenient location with a nice marina. Staff was very friendly and helped us with everything we needed throughout the trip. I would recommend this place to anyone!

The campground was nice and clean and the employees were very accommodating to what we needed. The boat we rented was nice and was the best deal that we saw around. One of the people working the campground named Jim gave us free wood since we were in tents and it was cold outside. My friends and I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get off the grid and have some fun. We will definitely be going back to this place in the future.

Had a great time at King Creek Resort and Marina for a week in early April. Big Jim and the staff here were really great, helped us every day with anything we needed. Facilities were very clean and kept up everyday. Rented one of their bass trackers for four days, ran great the entire trip. Will definitely be back in the future and would recommend checking out King Creek Resort and Marina to anyone going to the Kentucky Lake area. Thanks for everything Jim.

My wife and I stayed at King Creek the first two weeks of April. We usually stay at another resort but decided to try this one.
Best decision we made. Met Big Jim for the first time and hit it off Well right from the get go. Cabins are nice and have lake view. Jim accommodated is with all we needed even a part for my boat engine. Thanks again Jim. We met a lot of very nice people and to our surprise, we actually bought a nice camper all ready set up in the resort. That alone tells you how much we liked the place. Can’t wait to get back. Look forward to seeing all again.

Went up to fish, try out new boat, trolling motor etc. Stayed in area 3 times before and loved this place. Water was low but it is still the "winter water pool" which was understandable and didn't not stop us at all. Caught few, drank a few. Met friends from St Louis and had Jerry with us. Good times good times. Jim and son where so helpful and pleasant. Working hard to make their property top notch and believe me they are great. We will be back probably next April. Fought the rain and cold water but there is nothing you can do about that. Thank you to Jim. Your resort is the best I've stayed at in 4 years. We will be back.
