We put in at Fenton campground (right at the bridge over KY Lake in the middle of the park) and paddle South from there. The wind was pretty tough, and made it almost impossible for our canoer to make progress, so a tow was in order. It took us a few hours just to make it to the South side of Turkey Bay, which is where we camped.

Turns out starting just South of Fenton Campground, all the way to the North side of Turkey bay is a 4-wheeler playground. There was a constant stream of 4-wheelers, Jeeps, and 4x4's driving along the beach but, fortunately, were out of earshot from our campsite. You're not allowed to camp anywhere along this part of the lake, and the constant stream of traffic makes it unsuitable even for a rest stop.

There were no signs of any human activity at our campsite, lots of suitable firewood, and very little boat traffic. We picked one of many gravel bars that jutted out into the lake as our campsite, it was just the first one we could camp at, and there were more visible to the South. So, overall, it was a great area for camping.
