Nice lake to fish. Boat ramp is tricky though. Very shallow by boat ramp and dock. Nice size bass since minimum length is 15''. Says Keith White
So many enjoyable things to do here at Sympson Lake, too great to be true. If you need a site to stay Hampton Inn Bardstown is a tremendous choice; if you have a boat, Taylorsville Lake Marina is a good marina. White Acres Campground is a delightful local campground, and Sympson Lake is a site with many visitors
from Bardstown. This lake is so wonderful. Sympson Lake is a pleasant place to visit for more than one day, Holt's Campground and Fishing Lake is a pleasant place to camp nearby.
