Land Between The Lakes offers all the outdoor recreation "basics," with some unique opportunities for environmental education and historic interpretation.

Nestled in western Kentucky and Tennessee, LBL hosts visitors from all over the nation and from more than 30 foreign countries.

With more than 170,000 acres and 300 miles of undeveloped shoreline, LBL includes The Homeplace, with costumed interpreters and 16 log buildings—14 of them original historic structures — that bring to life the daily activities of a mid-19th century farm family.

Located between Kentucky and Barkley lakes, LBL features 300 miles of undeveloped shoreline.

"Whether you want to relax on one of two lakes, camp with the family on a weekend getaway, hike with friends on one of our scenic trails, or plan a group wildlife viewing adventure, Land Between The Lakes has something you are sure to enjoy," said the park's website.


When the Cumberland and Tennessee Rivers were impounded to create Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley, an inland peninsula was formed.

In 1963, President John F. Kennedy designated the peninsula Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area in an effort to demonstrate how an area with limited timber, agricultural, and industrial resources could be converted into a recreation asset that would stimulate economic growth in the region.

Today, LBL remains the country's only such demonstration site and is the centerpiece of the region's tourism industry.
