Kentucky Lake, Kentucky

Experience Kentucky Lake – “The South’s Great Lake!”

It’s time to reconnect with what matters and enjoy the natural distance we have here at Kentucky Lake. We have been disconnected for so long; it’s time to reconnect in a safe space and we have plenty of it! Rent an entire cottage or home along our shoreline for a chance to visit with family safely while also enjoying the sun and water! For families, businesses and outdoors lovers, we know there is nothing that can compare to the “South’s Great Lake!” Sure, there are other lakes in the South, but none like Kentucky Lake and the beauty, energy and lifestyle that we’ve built on these shores – it’s something worth experiencing. Kentucky Lake Kentucky is the place to watch your kids become kids again, reconnect with the ones that matter through food and fellowship, and quite possibly find out why fishing just comes naturally here! Let’s add a little water to your vacation this summer!

Here at Kentucky Lake, we understand that the perfect vacation is different for everyone, so if you’re not the avid angler, no worries! That’s what makes Kentucky Lake naturally perfect; you have the ability to create a unique vacation experience that is just right for you and your family. Whether it’s socializing around the campfire, lying out by the pool, or tubing and skiing along 2,300 miles of shoreline, Kentucky Lake has what you need. With attractions such as mini golf and go-karts, live country music shows, a local drive-in and our state resort parks, there is always something to do day or night!

Kentucky Lake was born in 1944 after the completion of Kentucky Dam. The Dam itself is 206 feet high and 8,422 feet long and is used to help control floods on the lower Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. Kentucky Lake is the largest manmade lake in the eastern United States drawing in millions of visitors each year.

Kentucky Lake’s neighbor, Land Between the Lakes, offers a variety of recreation. With over 170,000 acres, you can experience just about anything: take a drive through the Elk and Bison Prairie, see a constellation presentation at the planetarium or observe wildlife at the nature center. You can also visit The Homeplace or spend the day hiking or biking through the wilderness. Either way, there is something that every member of the family will enjoy.

Don’t worry, it’s perfectly natural to want to relax and have fun, so try Kentucky Lake’s natural perfection! Come discover what makes us so Great!
