Recent Kentucky Lake property reviews

  • Everything we hoped for, and more

    "Even in the off season, the getaway was perfect. Enjoyed the hot tub during the crisp cold. Got a round of golf in at a close course while the wives went antique shopping in town. The other reviews were right, the view of the lake from where ever you are in the house are amazing. The house had all the top notch accommodations, from the tv to the mattresses to the kitchen appliances and even the silverware. Catching up with old friends and making new ones needs a comfortable, relaxing place and this one does not disappoint! Looking forward to making this a regular visit!"

  • Great place to stay and fish, awesome staff!

    "This was the second time we stayed at King Creek Resort and Marina. Both times we found the accommodations to be great and the staff was awesome! We had our family reunion (total 15) this year and had a blast. Ate fish every day, and even made reservations to come back next year. We had family from Georgia and Illinois so it was almost 6 and 1/2 hours from both states. Would highly recommend this to anyone with family or fishing groups. I did not think of it at the time but the noise level was very quite. The Staff is Awesome, everyone there was extremely helpful, and truly wanted you to have a great time. You do not see that these days everywhere you go, but you really see it here. Note this is a fishing resort for families and fishing groups. This is not a 5 star resort, yes you have to wash your dishes by hand so enjoy being together. This is an excellent place to spend time with Family! We had an Awesome family reunion! Todd M."

Kentucky Lake Travel Tips

Things to See and Do at Kentucky Lake Vacation Rentals

Kentucky Lake is the largest man-made lake in the eastern part of the U.S. The lake covers an area of 160,300 acres when it is at capacity and backs up the Tennessee River for some 184 miles. The result is beautiful recreation dam that is almost the entire width of the state of Tennessee.

Boating and fishing are two of the lake's primary attractions. Crappie, bass and bluegill can be found along the shores and fishing tackle shops can provide supplies and bait. If you are a keen fisherman, it’s a good idea to read up on the local fishing reports before heading out. Because the lake covers such a large area, a great fishing spot one month may turn up empty the next. Most locals don't mind sharing their knowledge, unless of course it's during one of the annual fishing competitions; then you have to seek out where to land the big ones on your own. Boats are available for hire and charters are a great way to find your way around the lakeshore. The lake is large enough to accommodate boats of all shapes and sizes. Many visitors bring their own fishing, waterskiing or leisure cruising boats to enjoy during their vacation. House boats can also be seen cruising the lake and pontoons are popular for sundowners.

When not on the water, the surrounding lands offer a wealth of attractions. Hiking and biking trails wind through the nearby forests. There are several trails that loop around sections of the lake, offering impressive views of the lake and surrounding countryside. You can choose to do just one section or connect various loops to form a longer trail ride. Horseback riding and wildlife viewing can also be enjoyed in the area. Take a train ride through the countryside or take the kids for a fun day out at one of the water parks.

The small towns have some interesting shops, art galleries and quaint antique stores. If you're a collector with an eye for detail, you can be sure to find something special as you browse around. There are festivals and events happening throughout the summertime. Craft stalls, markets and entertainment all add to Kentucky Lake's attraction.
