Not only the largest lake in the state of Kentucky, but also the largest watershed on the Tennessee River system, and a legendary fishing lake on the tournament circuit; welcome to Kentucky Lake.
The two lakes come within one mile of each other here and then extend south with a combined 3,000 miles of shoreline to explore. Grand Rivers is also the north entrance to the Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area.
With resort marinas on both Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley, Grand Rivers offers unlimited water recreation. The marinas of Green Turtle Bay and Lighthouse Landing serve as gateways to the lakes for thousands of visitors seeking to enjoy boating and watersports.
The second largest lake in Kentucky, Lake Barkley offers a variety of recreational opportunities for millions of visitors each year.
Lake Barkley is 134 miles long with a shoreline measuring 1,004 miles. A canal connects the two lakes in Grand Rivers, and combines these two lakes into one huge water playground.
Both sports fishing and recreational boating are as popular on Lake Barkley as they are on Kentucky Lake. Some visitors prefer Barkley’s narrower protected main lake, and calm seclude bays.
Lake Barkley also offers a navigation lock for Cumberland River traffic.
