Trooper Island Camp was developed by the Kentucky State Police as part of a long range program of public service to the youth of Kentucky: a place where the tensions and turmoil of our everyday lives can be forgotten; and for one week young people can be given a touch of hope and desire of a better tomorrow.Arial image of Trooper Island.  Trooper Island is on Dale Hollow Lake in Southern Kentucky near the Clinton and Cumberland County Lines.

Spearheaded by former State Police Director, Colonel James E. Bassett, the idea was to establish a permanent recreational site where trooper and child could share a week long experience.

A location was selected in a secluded corner of Dale Hollow Lake near the Cumberland and Clinton County line, where an island was leased from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and a non-profit charitable corporation was formed.

More Information on Making a Difference

All construction and camping expenses are paid from tax-deductible contributions. Many industry, civic and business groups have provided this program much needed support.
