Are there any good pay lakes left in Bullitt County, or the surrounding areas? I joined the military over six years ago, and back then Harold's Harbor was good enough but its gone, and A Soldier's Dream is closed so I was wondering if anybody had any recommendations?

So MANY that have closed at the end of last year, I have no idea which will re-open to suggest. Harolds/Soldiers Dream, at this time, will probaly NOT REOPEN this season unless the forclosure happens soon and someone buys it that will bring it back. The legal issues there preclude that from happening at this point. Can tell you more after the 30 Jan court date/decision.
As far as others, I have heard someone is looking at "Pauls", since he retired again, so you may check that out. Catfish Hunter will be open this year in T-ville, but its up to you how you feel about the place as some love it, some hate it. Childress and Bob's place will be open, but there you will be fighting for a place to fish and the clientel is slightly less than desireable to most, but again up to you. I heard there is one guy opening up a couple others, good luck to him trying to run more than one effectively, but have heard no "offical" news on it. Also, Harvey was running one out in his backyard in Shep, but I don't know the rules (he told the Fish and Wildlife it was a "private member club") so you could check that out also.
Other than those, you are gonna need to ask around and probably travel to get any GOOD PLACES to fish this year. Hope this helps.

Wondering, You can always fish in Salt River or the Ohio. Get some of your buddies and rent a house boat on Lake Cumberland or Dale Hollow. Just google the lake name and you will get the marinas that have house boats.

If it's just a few of you rent a pontoon boat. They also have little fishing boats for about $50 per day. Kentucky has plenty of good fishing lakes but most are about an hours drive or more from Fort Knox.

You can go to Eagle Lake. Used to be Catfish Paradise off Fincastle and Dixie in Louisville. Good fishing still there.

It's the old Gilbert's lake on County Line rd. off Barricks but it's ugly now. Very small and they put huge rocks all around the banks. You can google earth it and see how unsightly it is.

Gilberts by Whispering Oaks Trailor Park. We always go and never leave without at least 15 good size cats. And plus, they are too damn nice. <3
