Every now and then you stumble onto a truly special place. Though the Narrows
have been here for thousands of years in my home state, I never paid any attention to them. Most of my attention was focused
into that other river feeding Lake Cumberland with all its beauty. That was until a couple of weeks ago. The Rockcastle runs
wild through the Narrows. About 16 miles from Somerset, and about 19 from London, Hwy 192 spans the Rockcastle River. On either side of that bridge lays Bee Rock Campground. Bee Rock is a fantastic rustic
campground for tent camping (the way camping was meant to be). The river is a perfect place to relax and explore. I plan to
go back and try my hand at fishing it as well. The river is a powerful one with house sized boulders littered all along the
Narrows. All in all, Rockcastle Narrows is a great place to step back in time and relax the natural way.
