“170,000 acre playground in Western Kentucky and Tennessee”
As part of America’s great outdoors since 1963, Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area manages over 170,000 acres of forests, wetlands, and open lands on a peninsula between Kentucky and Barkley lakes in Western Kentucky and Tennessee. The family friendly recreation area offers one of the largest blocks of undeveloped forest in the eastern United States.
No wildlife but an ok stop to stretch our legs. Don’t know if I would go out of my way to come here as a waypoint but I can see the lure if you wanted to camp and hike.
Please update address for navigation purposes.
A beautiful drive but no action today. We were there about 1:00pm and didn’t see anything. At times the brush is high beside the road blocking the view. We’ll try again later in the day next time.
Cool place to drive through!
Recently visited for a second time. Didn't see much on this trip but a couple elk and one bison. It's a nice stop if you're in the area but I'd like to see restrooms available here or a way to re-enter for the day if you've already paid but need to leave for a toddler to potty. $5 isn't much, but if there isn't much activity and no restrooms to use while waiting around awhile for the animals, it seems a waste.
We stopped here on a whim and it was the best decision we had made all day. It's amazing how close you can get to the elk and bison - truly breathtaking!
