You can find anything you want on beautiful Kentucky Lake. Fine and casual dining available at the many waterside restaurants and even floating restaurants at 'The Sands"' beach area and in 'Smith" bay. No finer fishing in west KY. Come and enjoy Kentucky's Western Waterland.

Very large lake. It was also very clean! Had lots of coves to hang out in. Had a nice beach to dock the boat on. Great lake for tubing or cruising. We will be back!
