    Is some permit required? I camped on Percy Priest islands for years and loved it. LBL permit shouldn't apply since it's in the lake not the LBL and I can't find out anything on Ky site requirements.

    We have done it in the past. I regretted it over the stiff back the next day but no one bothered us.

    If you ain't hurting anyone and leave no trace you were there I wouldn't even question the legality. G&F Officers have plenty of bigger fish to fry

    This weekend they won’t leave the party areas. I’ve never been checked by a wildlife patrol on ky lake so you’re right they probably won’t see one
