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!
