Fish JumpingDid you know Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley comprise one of the world's largest man-made bodies of water? Combined, they contain nearly 220,000 surface acres of water and a 1.75 mile long canal connects them at the northern end. This watery wonderland surrounds Land Between The Lakes on three sides. Plus, within LBL there are four fishable small lakes and numerous interior ponds. All this makes LBL one of the country's fishing hot spots!

We're a regional sport fishing center for crappie, bass, sauger, catfish, and bluegill. And with abundant camping -- several developed family campgroundstwo little boys fishing Angler Fishing In Boat (with features like a fishing pier and a fish cleaning station), five informal camping areas, sixteen undeveloped lake access areas with boat ramps, and practically unlimited backcountry camping by the lakeshore, anglers can really make a week of it!

All applicable state fishing licenses are required.
