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.
