Kentucky Lake, The South's Great Lake
Welcome to beautiful Kentucky Lake, the largest man-made lake in the eastern United States with 2,380 miles of shoreline and 160,000 acres of water! This enormous body of water backs up the Tennessee River for 184 miles and creates a lake that stretches south across the western tip of Kentucky and nearly the entire width of Tennessee.
Just imagine an area where the people are friendly, life is easy, and the scenery is absolutely breathtaking. The gentle lap of the waves, the splendor of a virtually untouched eastern shoreline bursting into an array of fall colors, the magnificent sunrises and sunsets, and impressive stringers of slab crappie, catfish, blue gill, white bass, sauger, and of course...bass. You have just pictured Kentucky Lake! Record catches of largemouth and small mouth can be had right here. An outdoor paradise located in the heart of America. For the professional angler to the novice, spring and fall offer the very best in fishing. Fishing continues throughout the summer with blue gill and stripes being the hottest species. The warmth of summer brings water activities to an all time high. Drag boat races, poker runs and open regattas are scheduled throughout the year. Boating, skiing, swimming, and personal water crafts are a great source of recreation and entertainment in the summer months.
Anchor in a bay to yourself, nap on the beach, or head for the golf courses. Whatever your choices may be, you will have the vacation you'll always remember on the lake you'll never forget.
